    1. 1. MY FATHER JUST LOVES TO SAY YES --II Corinthians 1: 18-22 YES
    2. 2. 2 Corinthians 1:18-22 (Message Bible) Well, you're wrong. I try to be as true to my word as God is to his. Our word to you wasn't a careless yes canceled by an indifferent no. How could it be? [19] When Silas and Timothy and I proclaimed the Son of God among you, did you pick up on any yes-and-no , on-again, off-again waffling? Wasn't it a clean, strong Yes?
    3. 3. 2 Corinthians 1:18-22 (Message Bible) [20] Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus . In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God's Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. [21] God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us . [22] By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledge—a sure beginning of what he is destined to complete.
    4. 4. TAKE HOME • I’m blessed, honored, lavished with God’s grace and care. It’s time to share the wealth. • Loved, forgiven, Spirit-filled and Heaven bound. It can’t get much better than this, This is the life. • God’s ‘No’ is a back door ‘Yes.’ If I’ll just be patient enough to see it. • I now have so much to share with others. After all, I’m a joint heir with Jesus, a child of the King. I can lead others to my Father’s deep pockets
    5. 5. Lord, help me see the immense wealth that comes with being a Christian. Love, forgiveness and Heaven too. May I be a willing messenger of your plans to share your life with others around me. Commitment:
