Building God’s Church
1. We Build on a Foundation, Which Has Already Been Established
1 Cor 3:10-15 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
● Almost 15 years ago God told Ps. Jason, “I’ve heard the cries of my people, and I’m sending you to the Pharaoh of the city to tell him, LET MY PEOPLE GO!”
● When we don’t honor what has been laid, we can cause division
● We are to recognize and copy so we build in unity
● We are to reproduce the DNA of Freedom (spirit of Freedom)
● We build the vision that God gave, not our own
2. You Have to Lean in to Receive Freedom’s DNA
Prov 2:1-5 My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God.
Heb 13:7-8 Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct.
1 Cor 11:1 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.
Phil 3:17 Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.
2 Tim 3:10-11 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance,
3. Who God Made Us To Be - Our DNA
● We are 100% surrendered to God and His Word
● We are forgiven of much and therefore LOVE much
● We have NO exit strategy
● We have laid down our lives so others can live
● We will give whatever God tells us to give
● We let go of everything so we can just have JESUS
● We pray because we need God and love God
● We live by faith and not by sight
● We cast out demons
● We speak in tongues
● We continue to change no matter the cost
● We obey the great commission
● We are FREEDOM, DISCIPLES OF CHRIST JESUS

But Jesus told him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead."
