Such Willing Oneness is achieved through an Eternal Focus granted from and OF God. God Who started us, sustained us while learning to Life as He does, and forgave our corruption of His Creation by paying for our corruption and making us NEW Creations in a NEW Life after dying with the One through Whom all things were made.

Sermon Notes

INTRO: To constantly CHOOSE to give life for God’s “Very Good” Creation – AS God does IS “Willing Oneness” with God.

“Willing Oneness” is achieved with God as He allows us existence and loves deeply His human Creations as images of Him.

He allows us to choose to recognize Him as superior in all things as our Creator, Sustainer, Savior, and Designer of Life for All. This choosing on our part enables God’s response …an entrance into a Kingdom Standard of Living . …BY allowing us to SEE our lowly state compared to His LIFE.

BENEFIT STATEMENT: Such Willing Oneness is achieved through an Eternal Focus granted from and OF God.

God Who started us, sustained us while learning to Life as He does it, and forgave our corruption of His Creation by paying for our corruption and making us NEW Creations in a NEW Life after our “dying” from our previous corrupted life beside the One through Whom all things were made .

(1Jn 4.9-11 Not that we loved Him, but that He loved US …/ God STARTED our life …SO, He is FIRST with ALL the Process)

SPS: Let’s let God show us HOW we join with Him and Christ willingly in “Willing Oneness”

BODY: Christ sacrificed Himself for ALL. Is this a clue to what is OUR Design for Eternity ?

  1. Christ Sacrificed Himself for ALL . And we are included THROUGH Him in God-Life !

Genesis 1:26 Genesis 1:26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.

(NKJV)
26  Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

Genesis 2:7 Genesis 2:7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

7  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

Job 31:14-15 Job 31:14-15 14 What then shall I do when God rises up? and when he visits, what shall I answer him? 15 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
14  What then shall I do when God rises up? When He punishes, how shall I answer Him? 15  Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?

Psalms 139:13-14 Psalms 139:13-14 13 For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.

(NKJV)
13  For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. 14  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

Humanity was created by the One Who became Christ, through Christ FOR Christ. Through Him human life began in God’s Image. God says so …

Colossians 1:16-18 Colossians 1:16-18 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
16  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18  And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. – All FOR Him …but there is another group that is closer to God and held for that Purpose which will apply to all in their time.

((((Ecclesiastes 3:9-11 Ecclesiastes 3:9-11 9 What profit has he that works in that wherein he labors? 10 I have seen the travail, which God has given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. 11 He has made every thing beautiful in his time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
9  What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? 10  I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. 11  He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

((((Acts 17:26-28 Acts 17:26-28 26 And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
26  And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27  so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28  for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’

Because God allowed human life for the purpose of choosing His Way and Him as priority over all our concerns and all our life …so He may reproduce  Himself as He will multiply His Good Creation …which is the Way of self-sacrifice for ALL “Good” through those who choose God-Spirit-LIFE-sharing …we may be enabled by God to enter His Kingdom Level Standard of Life. We may only do this through accepting God as superior in all things (which is obvious) and joining with His Approach to ALL …as ONE. Therefore, HE becomes priority in all things, including EVERY thought, body, emotion, work, work, place, time, ALL !

GOD Creates, enables, WE choose …

(Deuteronomy 30:19 Deuteronomy 30:19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live:
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
19  … I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, …)

We are tried over our lifetime inside God’s Body to learn how the way of Satan is not able to sustain or advance the Creation , but God’s Way must be priority for His Creations to participate in their Design .

GOD starts the Relationship, and thus enables those He Designed, Created and Sustained (while they were in sin) to choose HIS Way as their new Priorities in Life. [Total self-sacrifice which is reasonable].

John 6:44-51 John 6:44-51 44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes to me. 46 Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father. 47 Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes on me has everlasting life. 48 I am that bread of life. 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
44  No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45  It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. 46  Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. 47  Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. 48  I am the bread of life. 49  Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50  This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51  I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

((((1 John 4:9-11 1 John 4:9-11 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

( Genesis 6:8 Genesis 6:8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

8   But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.) [Grace booklet – pg 7: “grace” here is hen or chen (khane), “favor, grace, acceptance, unmerited favor or regard in God’s sight …conveying a sense of acceptance or preference with some special standing with God or His People. Chen comes from the verb chanan, “to bend or stoop in kindness to an inferior”.]

2 Corinthians 5:14-17 2 Corinthians 5:14-17 14 For the love of Christ constrains us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not from now on live to themselves, but to him which died for them, and rose again. 16 Why from now on know we no man after the flesh: yes, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now from now on know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
14  For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15  and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. 16  Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

1 Corinthians 8:5-6 1 Corinthians 8:5-6 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

It is NOT only about not sinning …it IS even MORE about multiplying VERY GOOD Creation so that God’s Designed Purpose in us is to willingly become One with Him.

LIFE will BE Good again as at Genesis Creation …that is why even the corrupted creation still exists now … to learn how to accomplish GOOD as God does it …including multiplying GOOD Life by exampling God to the rest of HIS Creation!

2 Corinthians 2:14-16 2 Corinthians 2:14-16 14 Now thanks be to God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the aroma of his knowledge by us in every place. 15 For we are to God a sweet smell of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16 To the one we are the smell of death to death; and to the other the smell of life to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
American King James Version×

14  Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15  For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16  To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?

This was planned and set in motion by the God Family of the Logos and the other Eternal One (Who was revealed by Christ 2000 year ago). The Logos would lower Himself to become one of us with us and be like us in the flesh, but perfect in Spirit SO we may become ONE with the God-Family!

Matthew 1:19-23 Matthew 1:19-23 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, you son of David, fear not to take to you Mary your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

  1. How We are to Become One with God’s Self-Sacrificing Nature?  ONENESS OF God With Christ

Romans 11:33-36 Romans 11:33-36 33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who has known the mind of the Lord? or who has been his counselor? 35 Or who has first given to him, and it shall be recompensed to him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever.

Romans 12:1-5 Romans 12:1-5 1 I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Works of reverence do not necessarily recognize the great “self” as impotent and temporary.

Job 2:3 Job 2:3And the LORD said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and eschews evil? and still he holds fast his integrity, although you moved me against him, to destroy him without cause.

We …the chosen and choosing Ones … responding in TOTAL agreement to Christ and Our Father, are shown HOW to Celebrate this NEW Life ! We are to no longer protect or elevate THIS flesh as priority, an THEN choose to give up our very existence for all the ones yet to become God’s Children by us imitating God as He examples Himself in Christ . You would think God would make that clear, and maybe even repeat it …

Humans are allowed to be self-interested above even our own Creator. They do not naturally submit to each other or God in Godly Unity . God would have us GIVE ourselves as HE does for ALL. To be ONE with God, we must therefore, become NEW. Not partially, in knowledge or action, but TOTALLY new, completely OF God …with NOTHING primarily for self, even self-protection or self-will . To see God Love us …and see His Love change us to NEW, is to Love what HE does in ALL His Creation, and therefore it is possible to love our neighbor as the “self” of GOD Who loves our neighbor while they are yet sinners for their Designed Purpose with Him! (Not rejecting God’s Planned Creation in sinning Potential ONES, but not join them in sin).

Willing Oneness is with Christ in active Trust of the Hope given by God in Love of His Design for ALL.

2 Corinthians 6:16-18 2 Corinthians 6:16-18 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Why come out from among them, and be you separate, said the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, said the Lord Almighty.

(NKJV)
16  And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17  Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” 18  ”I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”

NIV Hebrews 11:13 Hebrews 11:13These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
American King James Version×
 – “All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country– a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”

(((NLT Hebrews 12:1 Hebrews 12:1Why seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
American King James Version×
 – “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. 3 Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. 4 After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin.”

CONCLUSION:      NKJ Colossians 3:2 Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
American King James Version×
– “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

1 Peter 1:3-25 1 Peter 1:3-25 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again to a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 Wherein you greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, you are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found to praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom having not seen, you love; in whom, though now you see him not, yet believing, you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. 10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come to you: 11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 12 To whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us they did minister the things, which are now reported to you by them that have preached the gospel to you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. 13 Why gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which has called you is holy, so be you holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be you holy; for I am holy. 17 And if you call on the Father, who without respect of persons judges according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18 For as much as you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 Who truly was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. 22 Seeing you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned love of the brothers, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and stays for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass wither, and the flower thereof falls away: 25 But the word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached to you.
