Resolution – The Road To Victory Part 4

 

CORE VALUES:

 

– These help clarify and define WHAT and HOW we will do things.

 

– They are the FILTER we use as we engage to fulfill the purpose and vision through mission.

 

– Help you decide the DISTINCTIVES.

 

Not every opportunity is something we SHOULD do.

 

1Corinthains 10:23 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Matthew 4:1-11 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,

   and they will lift you up in their hands,

   so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

 

It was permissible to EAT.

 

It was appropriate to TRUST God.

 

It was His purpose to establish His KINGDOM.

 

Jesus FILTERED these opportunities through His values based on the God’s Word.

 

All enduring values must be based on the absolute TRUTH of God’s Word.

 

Jesus’ values brought SOUNDNESS, stability, and guidance in the storm.
