Slide 1: September 21, 2008 P.M. BY LITTLE AND LITTLE GOD CONFORMS US TO CHRIST : BY LITTLE AND LITTLE GOD CONFORMS US TO CHRIST Illustration: One day in the after a preacher gave a stirring message on the spur of the moment, a member of the audience came up to him later that evening and said, "I must tell you how much I enjoyed you extemporaneous talk. It’s been on my mind all day long!" The preacher immediately responded, "Madam, that extemporaneous talk has been on my mind for twenty years." The Christian life BEGINS with our conversion, but it PROGRESSIVELY GROWS and keeps on growing until one day we will see our Lord face to face! Little by Little 2 Little then Big : Little then Big 3 Little by Little Little then Big : Little then Big Look at these 2 images - #1 of a human embryo shortly after conception - #2 a 1 year old baby boy! Look at the growth – from small to larger and larger! It’s the same way with our faith in the LORD and the working of HIS WORD and of HIS PLAN! Little by Little 4 Little then Big : Little then Big GOD HATH DEALT TO EVERY MAN THE MEASURE OF FAITH Little by Little 5 Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 : Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 26 LIKEWISE the Spirit also helpeth (assist ) OUR INFIRMITIES: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 6 Little by Little Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 : Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 7 Little by Little Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 : Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 28 And WE KNOW that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.. “WE KNOW ” – do you believe that? WHERE IS YOUR VISION FROM THE EXTERNAL – THE FACTS OR FROM THE INTERNAL – THE WORD? 8 Little by Little Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 : Our TEXT:Romans 8:26-20 29 For whom HE DID foreknow, he also did predestinate TO BE CONFORMED (jointly formed) TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that HE might be the firstborn among many brethren. 9 Little by Little OLD TESTAMENTShadows : OLD TESTAMENTShadows Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 10 Little by Little OLD TESTAMENTShadows : OLD TESTAMENTShadows 11 Little by Little OLD TESTAMENTShadows : OLD TESTAMENTShadows What could have a 11 day journey took 38 to 40 years depending upon how you look at it! WHY? There are many reasons but for sake of time the point we need to glean from this study is it was a “DIVINE PROCESS” - a working of the LORD “LITTLE BY LITTLE” working out the doubt! Think about it the fleshly generation died off one by one – that’s a type of you and I today dying out to self – climbing that ladder of sanctification – being made into the image of JESUS! 12 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, TO KEEP thee in the way, and TO BRING thee into the place which I have prepared. 2 Parties Involved! 13 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 2 Parties Involved! #1 – WHAT GOD WILL DO? #2 – WHAT YOU WILL DO? 14 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 21 BEWARE OF HIM (Angel), AND OBEY HIS VOICE, PROVOKE HIM NOT; for he will not pardon your transgressions: FOR MY NAME (authority, character) IS IN HIM. 15 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 John 14:15 IF ye love me, keep my commandments. We will obey what we love more than anything else – there is no getting around this truth! Little by Little 16 OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 22 BUT IF THOU shalt indeed OBEY HIS VOICE, and do all that I speak; THEN I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. WE DO OUR PART AS WE GROW INTO HIS PLAN FOR OUR LIVES! 17 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 23 For MINE ANGEL shall go in before thee, and bring thee unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: AND I WILL CUT THEM OFF. God’s Part! 18 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 Each one of these people listed have a meaning for the types of troubles we have in our daily lives: #1 “Amorites” – mountain #2 “Hittites” - terror #3 “Perizzites” - without walls #4 “Canaanites” - a pedlar #5 “Hivites” - lifegiving village #6 “Jebusites” - threshing place 19 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. Our Part! RESISTANCE THEN REACTION 20 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 25 And YE SHALL serve the LORD your God, and HE SHALL BLESS thy bread, and thy water; and I WILL take sickness away from the midst of thee. 2 Parties Involved! 21 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I WILL FULFILL. God’s Part! 22 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 27 I WILL send my fear before thee, AND WILL destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I WILL make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee. God’s Part! 23 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 28 And I WILL send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee. NOTICE THE PROCESS God’s Part! 24 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 NOTICE THE PROCESS #1 “Hivites” - lifegiving village #2 “Canaanites” - a peddler #3 “Hittites” - terror 25 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 29 I WILL NOT DRIVE THEM OUT FROM BEFORE THEE IN ONE YEAR… 26 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 29 i will not drive them out from before thee in one year; LEST THE LAND BECOME DESOLATE, AND THE BEAST OF THE FIELD MULTIPLY AGAINST THEE. 27 Little by Little OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 : OLD Testament ShadowExodus 23:20-33 30 BY LITTLE AND LITTLE I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be INCREASED, and inherit (to distribute)the land. 28 Little by Little Last Wordsof Peter: : Last Wordsof Peter: 2 Peter 3:18 BUT GROW in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. 29 Little by Little What Comes BeforeGod’s Promise? : What Comes BeforeGod’s Promise? 30 Little by Little Growth by Trust : Growth by Trust 31 Little by Little Growth by Trust : Growth by Trust 32 Little by Little From time to time, lobsters have to leave their shells in order to grow! They need the shell to protect them from being torn apart, yet when they grow, the old shell must be abandoned! If they did not abandon it, the old shell would soon become their prison – and finally their casket! The tricky part for the lobster is the brief period of time between when the old shell is discarder and the new shell is formed! During that terribly vulnerable time period, the transition must be scary to the lobster! Currents gleefully cartwheel them from coral to kelp. Hungry schools of fish are ready to make them a part of their food chain. For awhile at least, that old shell must look pretty good! We are not so different from these lobsters! To change and grow, we must sometimes shed our shells – a structure, a framework – we’ve depended upon. Discipleship means being so committed to Christ that when HE bids us to follow, we will change, risk, grow, and leave our shells behind even though its “LITTLE by LITTLE” – HIS DIVINE PROCESS!
