One Thing Series // Forgetting what is behind
Alf Chehade shares from Philippians 3:13
‘No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,’
This Sunday Series seeks to help us practice the Word of God by considering One Thing. Each Sunday, we are encouraging one another to hear One Thing, to think about One Thing, to believe for One Thing, to do One Thing to make a difference and to act upon One Thing.
The bible has a much to say about One Thing – take a look at these passages:
2 Peter 3:8 > But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day
Phil 3:13 > But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
Gal 3:2 > I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?
John 9:25 > He replied, "Whether he is a sinner or not, I don't know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!"
Luke 18:22 > When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
Luke 10:42 > but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
Ps 27:4 > One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
Eccl 5:18 > Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life.
John 3:27 > John answered, "A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven.
Commencing Sun 21 April through to 26 May, our focus moves to One Thing. Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit would speak to each of us as we listen for that One Thing. Our hope is that we might encourage one another with that One Thing. Our desire is that we might be a people gathered together for One Thing – and that is to know Jesus…more.
