Part 5
Rise of Skywalker

1. We are all ORPHANS.

Romans 3:23 NIV “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Ephesians 1:5 TLB “His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And he did this because he wanted to!”

2. For every orphan there is a FAMILY.

Psalm 68:6 NIV “God sets the lonely in families…”

3. Where we COME FROM doesn’t have to determine where we are GOING.

Deuteronomy 30:19 NLT “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!”

2 Corinthians 5:17-18 NLT “Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:20-21 NLT “We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

4. LOVE is the path that reaches us all.

Romans 10:9-10 NLT
“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Psalm 55:4 NIV “my heart is in anguish within me…”

Psalm 55:12-13 NIV “If an enemy were insulting me I could endure it. If a foe were raising himself against me, I could hide from him. But it is YOU, a man like myself, my COMPANION, my CLOSE FRIEND with whom I once enjoyed SWEET FELLOWSHIP as we walked with the throng in GOD’S HOUSE.”

If we don’t learn to acknowledge and release those hurts we can never be truly healed.

1. Jesus wants to heal every wound

Psalm 147:3 NIV “He binds up the broken hearted and heals their wounds”

Proverbs 18:24 NIV “He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother”

Malachi 4:6 NIV “He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of their children to their parents…”

2. We find it in FORGIVENESS


Colossians 3:13 NIV "Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

What causes division?

1. Pride

Proverbs 13:10 “PRIDE leads to ARGUMENTS.”

2. Selfishness

James 4:1-3 MSG “Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because YOU WANT YOUR OWN WAY and FIGHT FOR IT deep inside yourselves. You lust for what you don’t have and are willing to kill to get it. You want what isn’t yours and will risk violence to get your hands on it. You wouldn’t think of just asking God for it, would you? And why not? Because you know you’d be asking for what you have no right to. You’re SPOILED CHILDREN, each wanting your own way.”

3. Wrong focus

Titus 3:9
“But stay away from those who have foolish arguments and talk about useless family histories and argue and quarrel about the law. Those things are WORTH NOTHING and will not help anyone.”

2 Timothy 2:23-24 NIV “Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments because you know they produce quarrels and the Lord’s servant must not quarrel. Instead he must be kind to everyone…”

I Corinthians 1:10 NLT “I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be NO DIVISIONS in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and PURPOSE.

4. Hurt

Matthew 24:10 NKJV “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another”

Ephesians 4:15-16 NCV “Speaking the truth with love, we will grow up in every way into CHRIST, WHO IS THE HEAD. The whole body depends on Christ, and all the parts of the body are joined and held together. Each part does its own work to make the whole body grow and be strong with love.”

At The Movies- The Lion King

The Lion King

1. The possibilities are endless with God

Ephesians 2:10 NIV “We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

2. The enemy wants to fill you with shame

3. Shame causes us to run
Romans 11:29 KJB “the gifts and callings of God are without repentance.”

Romans 8:28 “God works all things together for our good”

4. God’s plan is worth fighting for

Galatians 6:9 NIV “Let us not grow weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up”
