I used this presentation in a midweek sermon. The flow and information is from Lolo Oseas so I hope it will be useful for anyone who might need it. Feel free to make changes if you like ^^

  1. 1. TICKETS AND BOARDING PASSES
  2. 2. In1975 Philippines Wide Youth Congress, was held in Bacolod City. Two groups of AY delegation were at the pier of Negros Navigation on Sunday before the start of the youth congress. ‘GYMNAIRES’ for Christ of PUC and AY from the Northern Luzon Mission were waiting to board Dona Florentina, it was scheduled to depart at 1:00pm. Gymnaires had Boarding Passes while the NLM delegates had Tickets. The two delegations were not allowed to board the boat when it departed at 1:00pm because all passengers must BOTH have the Tickets and Boarding Passes.
  3. 3. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TICKET AND A BOARDING PASS Ticket= voucher of payment for admission Boarding pass=permission to come aboard
  4. 4. Matthew 7:21-23 – 21- “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” 22 - “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons, and perform many miracles?” 23- “Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me you evildoers!’”
  5. 5. “I NEVER KNEW YOU” but in Matthew 10:30 He says, “…and even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” According to Scriptures, who are the people who are KNOWN to God? 1 Corinthians 8:3 - “But the man who loves God is KNOWN BY GOD.” If you breathed a sigh of relief, because the “… the man who LOVES God. . .” is “KNOWN BY GOD” - do you claim that you have PASSED?
  6. 6. AGAIN, shall we allow the Scriptures to explain - “the man WHO LOVES GOD” Are you INTERESTED to identify, the man WHO TRULY LOVES GOD? 1 JOHN 4:20,21 20- “If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a LIAR. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, CANNOT LOVE GOD, whom HE HAS NOT SEEN. 21 - And he has given this command; whoever loves God MUST ALSO LOVE HIS BROTHER.”
  7. 7. PLEASE PONDER THESE NEXT FIVE QUESTIONS, in your mind right now. 1. Do you often talk about someone who has hurt you? 2. Do you sometimes REPLAY the scenes which he/she has hurt you? 3. Do you at times PLAN REVENGE for what he/she did to you? 4. Are you UNCOMFORTABLE in his/her presence? 5. Are you finding this SITUATION AFFECTING your other relation-ships, especially the one involving your family members? If you are reminded of one, or two, or more persons, WHAT NOW?
  8. 8. Perhaps one incident in the Scriptures in which Apostle Peter asked the Lord a question or two should be considered at this point. MATTHEW 18:21, 22 21- “Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother WHEN HE SINS AGAINST ME? Up to seven times?” 22 – “Jesus answered, ‘Not seven times. But seventy times seven.’” ON JESUS’ REPLY TO PETER PONDER BACK TO THE 5 QUESTIONS. THE BIBLE TEACHES US, THESE PERSONS WE MUST FORGIVE.
  9. 9. Matthew 18:35 - “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.” 1 Corinthians 8:3 - “But the man who loves God is KNOWN BY GOD.” 1 JOHN 4:21 - And he has given this command; Whoever loves God MUST ALSO LOVE his brother.” John 13:35 - “By this all men will know THAT YOU ARE MY DISCIPLES; IF YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” SHALL WE LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT WE ARE JESUS’ DISCIPLES BECAUSE OF OUR LOVE AND FORGIVENESS ONE FOR ANOTHER?
  10. 10. Matthew 18:35 - “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.” 1 Corinthians 8:3 - “But the man who loves God is KNOWN BY GOD.” 1 JOHN 4:21 - And he has given this command; Whoever loves God MUST ALSO LOVE his brother.” John 13:35 - “By this all men will know THAT YOU ARE MY DISCIPLES; IF YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER.” SHALL WE LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT WE ARE JESUS’ DISCIPLES BECAUSE OF OUR LOVE AND FORGIVENESS ONE FOR ANOTHER?
