  7. 7. + 8 year-old's explanation of god -- By Danny Dutton Written by an 8 year old from ChulaVista,CA,for his third grade homework assignment.The assignment was to explain God.I just wonder if any of us could do as well? One of God's main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn't make grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make.That way he doesn't have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and fathers. God's second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this . Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his ears, unless he has thought of a way to turn it off.
  8. 8. +God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn't go wasting his time by going over your mom and dad's head asking for something they said you couldn't have. Atheists are people who don't believe in God. I don't think there are any in Chula Vista. At least there aren't any who come to our church. Jesus is God's Son. He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn't want to learn about God. They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified him. But he was good and kind, like his father, and he told his father that they didn't know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K. His dad (God) appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so he told him he didn't have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So he did. And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones he can take care of himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important.
  9. 9. +You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time. You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there's anybody you want to make happy, it's God. Don't skip church or do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach.This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn't come out at the beach until noon anyway. If you don't believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can't go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He's around you when you're scared, in the dark or when you can't swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids. But... you shouldn't just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases. And this is what I know about God.
  10. 10. + What do these Mean? Correct Definitions that will SET you FREE Purpose: If someone died so that you will live, your purpose ceases to exist, your purpose must be to seek and do the purpose of the person that died for you. Worry: It’s a clear indication that you are thinking about yourself rather than thinking about your owner – God! People who are truly dead to themselves are not meant to fret about themselves. Lord: Someone whose servant and slave you are! True Lordship annihilates personal agenda. Servants do their Lords will, they cannot afford not to be in regular listening terms to their Lord.
  11. 11. +What do these Mean? Sin: A nature that causes death. A nature that God abhors and separates men from God.The nature of sin begets a behavior of sins. Jesus Christ:The Only solution ever deployed on Sin.The Ladder which stretches from Heaven to Earth.The one who died for our penalty due, and gave us a chance to have access to God again. Disciple: Someone who has followed Jesus Christ and as a consequence is actively involved in helping other people to follow as He/She Follows Christ. A disciple is like a router, who connects from the main router to ensure that other people can be made into routers or hot spots and can have access to God. Being Born Again:This means first of all dying to who you are, what you wanted, all your cravings, desires and agendas and coming alive in Christ to live His life through you.This is not mere lip service, this is a daily reality.
  12. 12. +What do these Mean? Gods Will: God’s number 1 Agenda.The Reconciliation of people from every tribe, tongue and nation. God’s will is not something pecuniary as can be applied to God’s will for my life.There is nothing like that. God’s will is God’s will, it’s ensuring you live your life in line with what God wants to do and is doing. Ambition:This is something a believer is incapable of. Our desire is to do the will of Him who died for us. Our greatest aspiration is to serve, our highest place is down at His feet Heavens Resources:This is everything under God’s control.The Heavens and the Earth – everything in it. Breath, Gold, Silver, Majesty, Honor, Glory,Wisdom, Animals, Birds, Fishes, Humans, Governments, Authorities, Galaxies, Moon, Sun, Star, Babies, Healing, everything! He deploys them in the direction of His Will.
  13. 13. + Personal Discipleship Plan – Engage 4
  14. 14. + Be Transformed: Not just informed! Set your mind on Godly things and guard your mind from worldly things. Phil 4:18, Prov 4:23, Ps 119:9 1. Study God’s Word – Have a Plan! 1-3 Chapters a day! 2 Tim 2:15. 1 Pet 2:2 2. Memorize the Scriptures – Have a plan. 1-3 per week. Ps 119:11, Job 23:12, Jer 15:16 3. Learn God’s words from others – It’s not about individualism, join a community. Get a pastor who prioritizes God! Learn from brethren weekly. Col 3:16, Heb 3:13, Heb 10:25, 1 Thes 5:11, Rom 14:19, 2 Pet 1:3, Prov 27:17 Our Goal is not just to believe his Word, but to obey his Word.
  15. 15. + Fuel your Love and Affection! Do you Love Jesus? Feed and Shepherd his lamb and sheep. John 21:17. Luke 15: 1-7. Our aim is not simply to know God, but to Love God! 1. Worship! Life is worship. Do it alone, do it in all things, and do it with brethren. Rom 12:1. I Cor 10:31, Heb 10:24,25. 2. Pray! Have time alone with God regularly Matt 6:6. Pray continually, stay in touch. 1 Thes 5:17. Pray together. Matt 18:19. 3. Fast! From time to time. Start small, start with a meal, then more, then frequently. Matt 6:16-18 4. Give! Give Matt 6:1-4, Pray, Fast,Treasures. Matt 6:19-21. Our money doesn’t reflect our heart. Our heart follows our money. Church and Needy. Give
  16. 16. + Be a Witness! God’s WILL is for People to be saved! For the lost to be reconciled. God’s Will for our lives is that we’ll find a way to align ourselves with His WILL, in everything we are doing. 1. Who? Write a Name List of 10 people who are unsaved or dangerously deceived who are least likely to KILL you.Your first assignment on this list is to pray for them, that God will draw them to his Salvation. 2. How? Be intentional is sowing seeds. Sew gospel threads daily, with people on your list and people you meet. Pray daily to do the work, and seek opportunities to do it. Be alert for opportunities to share the entire gospel too. 3. When? Don’t merely sit and passively wait. Be deliberate.Write a letter, invite for lunch, sleep over, invite them for a meeting. Don’t forget WHY! God put these people around you to reach them.You were once that person. Someone sought you out!
  17. 17. + Love! Share life with other believers Am I committed to a local church and am I sharing my life with other followers of Christ in mutual accountability under the biblical leadership for the glory of God? 1. Where? Find a Local Church that helps you to fulfill God’s will and lock arms with other brethren to execute God’s mission. If not here, find out where and function there! 2. What? What can you do to lay your life down for your brethren? Where can you function? Are there people you can serve? How can you build others and be built up as well? Where can you show love? It is practically impossible to follow Christ without loving his church.You need to be devoted to a family of Christians.
  18. 18. + Make Disciples of all Nations! The mandate is not just within our localities.We must be global from day one, and start from our communities. You need to have a role that reaches to the ends of the earth where God’s glory must be spread. 1. Pray for the Nations. Participate on your knees.They Kingdom come. Matt 6:10 2. Give to the Nations. Find a way to connect your money to a missionary work. Join what your local church is doing. 3. Go to the Nations. Strategically and creatively think through how you can go, connect with them locally. Go for a short vacation, long work related pursuit e.t.c. We have given God a blank check on our lives.Take it to him, and ask Him to lead you. Our lives should be spent for his glory.
  19. 19. +Make Disciple Makers among a Few This was the model Jesus used! He wanted to save the world, he spent quality time with a FEW! 1. Bring them in! Consider 3 or 4 people that God has put within your circle of influence. Ask God for names of specific people. Invite them to spend intentional time with them. 2. Teaching them to Obey! Help them follow the previous processes.Teach them to obey, check how they are growing. 3. Modeling Obedience! Plan intentional ways to show what it means to follow Christ. Let them participate in your following.1 Cor 11:1, Phil 4:9 4. Sending them out! Send them out to do the same! Duplicate. Continue to support them. Jesus did these, and invited us to partner with Him. It’s a call worth dying for for a King worth living for.

  22. 22. + Words on Marble “We all are called to make disciples! There are only two kinds of people who cannot disciple, and that is one who is not a follower of Christ and/or one who disobeys God's command and refuses to disciple
  23. 23. +This is who we Are! This is Who I Am! I am Heaven’s Citizen! I am God’s, totally God’s. I am God’s Representative Here on the Earth! He finds expression through me.
