Sermon notes and scripture references:

 

God’s Favorite Person

 

God Loves all people the same – John 3: 16 - For God so loved the world that He gave His only begottenSon, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 

Proverbs 8:32 - “Now therefore, listen to me, my children, For blessed are those who keep my ways. God favors certain people.

 

Blessed is the man who listens                                                                                                                                         

 

Why does God favor someone?                                                                                                                                     

 

Not because religious or good

 

Proverbs 4:20 - My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.

 

Motivation is the issue in life

 

Joseph – His father’s favoritisms causes a problem

 

How did Joseph end up running the whole world?

 

If the hand of God is on you -No one can keep you down

 

Psalm 127:1 - Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.

 

Can God find a wife for you? Genesis 2:18-23 -  And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to [a]Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name.  So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.

 

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He [b]made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

 

 And Adam said:

 

“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called [c]Woman,
Because she was taken out of [d]Man.”

 

 

 

What did Adam do to find a wife?

 

 

 

Do you have an ear to hear? Revelation 3:6 - “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God blesses certain businesses and churches above others.

 Revelation 3:7-8 - “And to the[a]angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy,He who is true,“He who has the key of David,He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door,[b]and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
