This message remind us about something she God has given us his grey. He's covered us all our people, Yours in all of our mistakes, he's never gonna, fail us he's all. He's gonna love us what a beauty for position to be in some way secure position to be, and in fact, when you think about that, it makes you wanna do better. They make you one arrives higher. In fact the scripture says it's, the goodness of God that leads us to repentance. You could say it like this. It's the goodness God that works in us and make us better,
makes us into the people. He's called us to be see this. Same goodness, the same love, the same unfairly love not only is for us, but it's for those around us. It's for our family it's for our spouses, our children, our relatives, our neighbour, using God bless us and gives us this not to hold onto it far cells desire. This is so great God. No, he blesses us so that we can spread the Wolesi so that we can give the favor. So that we can be that conduit on this are it's called the hands and feet of Jesus I want us to believe with all of our heart we are so covered and so loved it that we are able to do the same for other people. I wanna talk today about our
families making sure we are covering our families, making here we are loving them, considering them not just putting them on our to do list, but putting them on our to love list every day. Are your loving the gifts that God has given You, you see children, the Bible says heritage there, a gift from God they were not just for us to work for them. We're supposed to enjoy them. We're supposed to celebrate with them are spouses or a gift from God. They are someone to help us grow and learn and live life together. Are we putting them on our love list every single day. I've been married to jewel for thirty years, and I gotta tell you this. I say,
we have to remind myself is on my love list, because you know it's fine. It burst. You can get all excited? You have a little goosebumps. Everything is so wonderful, but as you, years go by. You have to continue to stir up the love and the excitement, I have to run I myself, I cannot quit mean jaw, biggest share later. I can't quit telling. How proud I am of him I did. I am that I'm his wife, I can't quit be in my very best so that all reflect the very best on him. You see one of the greatest ways to love each other. Is to live at our very best to set the tone the life we want to live. You see you set the tone and the atmosphere for your life you're, not at the mall.
Better at the monitor measures, the temperature, but a thermostat sets the temperature it sets. And God has empowered every one of us. Throw his love his grace, his mercy to set the tone and the temperature for our life and for the lives of that It says in Hebrew, ten, twenty four letters, consider how we may see one another on towards love and good deeds. You see it you can spurs someone on in God's love. Listen those good deeds of follow if you can strengthen them in God's love than their life would become better. You say it was the love that race Jesus from the dead, latticed, powerful love, covers all.
Love is the end all be all when you don't know what to do. God is saying love em anyway, Just love em anyway, because it's a powerful force first love does so we can love others, so I think about that scripture and, I think to myself how can spur my family on. I have to consider it. That means to meditate on it? I have to think about it. I can't do this same way all the time I don't put it on Pilot, I consider a meditate. I do well what works best in this situation. You know when I think about how to spur or cheer someone on. I think about that. Attitude of a cheerleader. Ok, I was never cheerleader in high school. Though I wish I would, if I guess I'm is not calling, but I can be a cheerleader right here to my family,
I can hear them on and it's not so much about raw. It's about an attitude you think about being at the high school game there's a cheerleader on the sidelines. What's the attitude of those cheerleaders, they attitude is a winning attitude. When the scoreboard is in their favour pomp, jobs are, and I share in their team on when the scoreboard is down and their team is bumble in the ball and they don't seem to be able to get it together. Their town ever changes they have a way in town. Just stay different, chant! That's when you hear the thin the bids, but there town is still pointing the team towards winning it saying, hey,
He can score. Let's keep our spirits ha. I have never ever seen the scoreboard down on the the team that the cheerleaders we're we're Rudy.
Or man. The guys are fumbling the ball. It doesn't look good. The cheer later puts or palm palms down shakes her head says I'm out of here ever never seen it. That's not. The attitude of a cheerleader cheerleader knows how to keep the spirits up, but may chance a little different. We need be, but always points their team to the winning goal, and that's what I want us to think about. What is your attitude towards those difficult situations when maybe your husband, your wife, your children, they don't seem to be able to get it together. Many keep fumbling the ball. What's going on? What do you do? What do you do when they do score? Do you take time to celebrate to shout to tell
How proud you are of them! You see you got to keep this attitude in the good times and in the bad times it's called consistency, and if we're going to set the tone for our family and we're going to create the life That we want to live with our family. We're gonna have to be consistent. We're going to have to keep the tone of a winner, listen Lastly, I want to hear when I'm fumbling. The ball is what you do that for. Loser. I don't know that I'm fumbling the ball. I know that I haven't done well, I'm trying. I need someone to support me to prompt me up to direct me towards the goal I need to know that I can score. I don't need to be told bumble in the ball. I need one there. For me, it's interesting because
The Bible says, give two other people what you want. That's a good way to keep it all into perspective when you're facing difficulties when you're facing difficult situations with family members- and I know there are some family members that seem to me never be able to get it right, but can I tell you You get it wrong. It's not going to change a thing you decide to tell them how bad they are. That's not going to change a thing, but if you will give this tone this winning tone right, you have a better chance of proper them up and helping them. You see it's our response. Are we working in a place of peace, or do we get that peace? we get it from God. You know what I said before we get everything from God. Can only lead to live and victory by getting from God. You see here, giving it to us so that we can give it to. Others are realised women
It was about eight years old how important my response was that it set the tone for what would go on Joel. I think it was his maybe his first but her second book and we were as a family travelling all over the country, the publisher headset. All of these books signing up indifferent dates. So they had chartered us a little plain and we Go and all over the country, sometimes we would be in a three different states in one day. And so we have always done this ministry is a family. So we had, I had my little eight year old girl in my little my probably eleven year old Son, and so we probably go into our second state, and it was a man. The other day, and we were going in this little play. In my year old daughter, Alexander, was sitting across from me. We're just kind of hanging chilling little bit when all of a sudden the oxygen masked falls from the ceiling, and I just
panicked, big ol eyes, huge gas I was like we're motherly. Euro girl didn't know what was going on but the town centre was panicking them, in the bunch was freaking out so she immediately began to cry just ball all sudden. She saw me and it just let go and emotion of this is a bad situation and I realized well. I just set the tone for her. She was looking at me and I set the tone for panic for fear for
difficulty for doubt, Baronne believe if I would have sat there and kept my cool and thought you know what, if a scream and several keep this plain in the air, if a freak out, it's not going to change anything. If I could have just realized that my response, made all the difference in the world now. Needless to say, the pilot came up and said sorry alone malfunction as he cried the thing up in the ceiling. Thank God in Heaven hours I go, but it should My response is powerful and I tell that little. Story to say your Spots is powerful, whether you're child is eight years old, eighteen years old or thirty, eight years old, your response You set the tone, its powerful, we're, not home. On the phone. To this day,
She literally has the power to set the tone for me whether I like it or not. There is a powerful because it's called the anointing of being a parent. It's just the way- God made it. So I want to remind you today and myself Are we going to celebrate in the good times and are we going to keep that winning spirit in the difficult times? See it's all about our tone? It's all about the temperature, it's all about the winning spirit, and I believe if we will do that and we get that from I'd we're gonna, set the tone and have a great life not only for ourselves but for our families.
