What Have We Learned? Purpose Driven Life

Deuteronomy 11:1-2

87 year old woman goes out on a date with a 97 year old man.
“I had to slap him three times.”
Did he get fresh with you?
No, I slapped him to see if he were still alive.

We don’t want the world slapping us to see if we are alive.

This message was connected to the vision we have for Central Baptist.

Remember about God

1. It’s all about God, not me (churches die when the members think it is about themselves).

Hebrews 2:10a

Colossians 1:16

2. That God still does miracles

–RAM beginning at Buck Run

Psalms 77:14

Remember about Life

1. That life is preparation for eternity

Ecclesiastes 3:11

2. That we on this earth for 5 purposes

We have one mission the Great Commission.

Remember about Spiritual Growth

1. That we grow through making commitments . . .the happiest people are those who are serving

James 2:17

2. That we grow through fellowship

Proverbs 27:17

Philippians 4:9

We need to reach out to others through fellowship.

Now what?

Start living what you have learned and pass it on (we are to be a multiplying church)
