Use the Force

Colossians 1:25-29 NAS 25 Of this church I was made a minister according to the stewardship from God bestowed on me for your benefit, so that I might fully carry out the preaching of the word of God, 26 that is, the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, 27 to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. 29 For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.

$$ God has….. defeated, overcame, paid for


If we have the following why is it not manifesting in our lives?

Colossians 1:13 KJV Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Romans 8:37 NAS But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

Philippians 4:13 NAS I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Ephesians 2:5-6 NAS 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus

2 Peter 1:3a NAS seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness


We wait for Jesus to come rescue us like Superman would

  • We have the power to rescue us.
  • Acts 1:8 NAS but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."

We must continually evaluate whether we are manifesting what Jesus has bought and make adjustments to ensure it.


What is attached to the decisions we make, both in doing something or not doing something

The motive we do something for will carry repercussions

God has a 1st, 2nd, 3rd……. plan for our lives. We decide which one we walk in.

Our decisions make the decision


Some decisions come with repercussions. Like having sex could leave you with an STD


Relationships outside of God’s will could leave you with hurts that will cause you to miss what God is doing at that time


Allowing yourself to be disobedient to a truth will cause a blinding in an area of your life or your entire life



If we lose it’s because on or more of the following:

We are ignorant of how to win

We chose not to fight

We’ve been overcome by sin, accusation, shame, guilt, condemnation
