BEING God's People

Posted on September 10, 2017

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people…”

How do you become one of God's people? Salvation

Acts 2:38, 4:12

Salvation is not something you create, it's something you accept.

John 14:15

“...who are called by my name…”

He wants you more than you want him.

“…will humble themselves…”

Humility to recognize God's grace - mercyforgiveness.

“…and pray…”

Prayer is not about a monologue but a conversation.

“…and seek my face…”

Are we seeking God’s truth as his people?

“…and turn from their wicked ways…”

Turn = 180 degrees

“…then will I hear from heaven…”

Does God answer your prayers?

“…and will forgive their sin…”

1 John 1:9

He promises to forgive if we confess.

“…and will heal their land.”

God's people:

--following the commands of the Bible.

--following the example of the life of Jesus.

--following the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
