210511 – The Fifth Face of God – Dr Darius Jankiewicz

210511 Evening Meeting- Dr Darius Jankiewicz

“The Fifth Face of God”

To fulfil Jesus dream we need to know about God

Identity thieft is stealing information about a person.

Do you believe in God?

What kind of God do you believe in?

1 Cor 13:12. We now see through a glass, darkly …

Three-act story

Act 1 – The Great Controversy

Act 2 – The Garden of Eden

About 95% of Americans believe in God.

There are differing beliefs about God

Americans worship 4 distinct Gods

  1. Autocratic God
  2. Indulging God
  3. Critical God
  4. Distant God

What kind of influence does the church have in my understanding of God?

Act 3 –

Methodology > John 14:8-10 Anyone who has seen the Father.

When we see Jesus, we see the Father.
Whoever wants to be great must first be your servant, first be slave of all,

The son of man did not come to be served but to serve.

Two ways of living as Christians:

  1. Pagan
  2. Jesus’

Not so with you. You must be slave of all.

Gal 5:13 Be slaves for one another humbly in love.

Phil 2:5-9 Have the same mindset of Jesus Christ … made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a slave.

Act 4 – John 13:

In every act of Jesus we are to recognise God.

Application
When next you participate in foot washing, you are washing the feet of God. The water is the Spirit washing you.

Sin has damaged our glasses that we cannot see God, and understand who he really is.

Think of one thing you could do in your church that would change your understanding of God.
