Getting Excited In God

  1. 1. Getting excited in God The word “excitement” means: “to be stirred or thrilled, the state of being emotionally worked up, the feeling of active and cheerful joy.” Some would say they have excitement at times, BUT it all depends on what they are doing, what they are „into‟ at the moment. ARE YOU INTO GOD AT THIS TIME?
  2. 2. Many get excited at football matches or other sporting events. Some will be thrilled at getting a new outfit, or a good meal out. Everybody gets excited with their gifts at Christmas or a good holiday. BUT, I believe it is time we got excited over the things that will last for all eternity. The things of God.
  3. 3. We fight for front seats at a concert or sporting event. Because we want to part of the action. How about church? Or is it how far away we can sit from the front of the church (the action spot) the better we feel? It is by time seat takers become partakers!
  4. 4. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with your entire mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment” Mark 12:30.
  5. 5. 1. JESUS CAUSED EXCITEMENT TO HAPPEN. His birth. Luke 2:14-16 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.” His triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Mark 11:9 “Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna!‟Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'” Everywhere Jesus went. The excitement was catching. When the Spirit of God indwells you, it will transform you from a lukewarm log, to a fiery burning Christian.
  6. 6. 2. PEOPLE GOT EXCITED ABOUT JESUS. The woman at the well. John 4:28-29 “The woman then left her water pot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” The blind man in John 9:17 “They said to the blind man again, “What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?” He said, “He is a prophet.” The lame man at the gate in Acts 3 (He asked for alms and got legs!). Acts 3:8-9 “So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them--walking, leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God.”
  7. 7. If excitement means “In God,” then we should consider: Mark 10:27 “But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” www.Internetpreachersforchrist.com Internetpreachersforchrist@gmail.com
