"Sticks Make Great Toy Guns" Message & Notes


"I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:10-13

1.) I don’t like who I am. “I don’t like who I see in the mirror.”

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." - Roman 8:1

“There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” - Romans 3:9-10

"This righteousness is given through faith in[h] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace." - Romans 3:22-23

2.) I don’t like the results of my life. “I should be doing better.”

I love you Jesus.

My value either comes from Jesus or my accomplishments it has to be one or the other. It can’t be both.

"But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death." Philippians 3:7-11

I love you Jesus.

"For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again." - 2 Corinthians 14:16

3.) I don’t like my relationships “I want more from my relationship.”

I love you Jesus.

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. 27 And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple." - Luke 14:26-27

4.) I don’t like where I live, work, play. “ I need to get out of here.

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." - Hebrews 13:5

I love you Jesus.​

5.) I don’t like the looks of my future “I just know something is going to go wrong.”

I love you Jesus.

"But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction." - 1 Timothy 6:6-9
