Champions by Pastor Joshua

Pastor Joshua on 13 Oct 2009 at Cornerstone Tuesday night group.
Ps Joshua spoke on how we should be champions. Jesus was a Champion so we should be Champions because we have His Spirit in us.

Champions with the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:18-30 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Champions in sowing the seed
Mark 4: 3-9 "Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. Other seed fell on rocky ground where it did not have much soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep. When the sun came up it was scorched, and because it did not have sufficient root, it withered. Other seed fell among the thorns, and they grew up and choked it, and it did not produce grain. But other seed fell on good soil and produced grain, sprouting and growing; some yielded thirty times as much, some sixty, and some a hundred times." And he said, "Whoever has ears to hear had better listen!"

Mark 4: 13-26 He said to them, "Don't you understand this parable? Then how will you understand any parable? 14 The sower sows the word. 15 These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: Whenever they hear, immediately Satan comes and snatches the word that was sown in them. 16 These are the ones sown on rocky ground: As soon as they hear the word, they receive it with joy. 17 But they have no root in themselves and do not endure. Then, when trouble or persecution comes because of the word, immediately they fall away. 18 Others are the ones sown among thorns: They are those who hear the word, 19 but worldly cares, the seductiveness of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the word, and it produces nothing. 20 But these are the ones sown on good soil: They hear the word and receive it and bear fruit, one thirty times as much, one sixty, and one a hundred."

Champions pray that they have witnessed to someone that they are the ones sown on good soil.

Champions in following God's words
Acts10: 3 About three o'clock one afternoon he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God who came in and said to him, "Cornelius. 5 Now send men to Joppa and summon a man named Simon, who is called Peter
Acts10: 9 About noon the next day, while they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. the Spirit said to him, "Look! Three men are looking for you.
44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all those who heard the message.

Now because Cornelius obeyed the vision he had and because Peter also followed the vision by going with the men a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit happened. Be Champions in obeying a vision from God.

Joshua closed in saying that the people of Cornerstone were Champions and that when he returned to Tanna he would get his team together to pray for all of us by name. And that special prayers would be said including praying for those of us with businesses.
