Wound Care Week 4

FROM WOUNDEDNESS TO BLESSING:

-Often they limp through life because they harbor unforgiveness and struggle with anger. THIS IS
NOT GOD’S WILL.
-Chuck Swindoll: “Life is ten percent what happens to us and ninety percent how we respond to it.”

-John 8:36 – “If the Son set’s you free, you are free indeed!”
-Ephesians 1:3 –  “ Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in
the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”

-Through this story, we are going to look at how we can be healed and how we can offer healing to
others.

HOW DO WE MOVE FROM WOUNDEDNESS TO BLESSING? HOW DO WE
EXPERIENCE THE MARVELOUS GRACE OF GOD?

  1. KNOW THAT GOD’S HEART IS TO EXTEND GRACE! – Verses 1-8

-Romans 5:17 – “For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one
man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the
gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!”
-Romans 8:32 – He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he
not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

-The grace that David wanted to extend flowed out of a covenant relationship with
Jonathan, Mephibosheth’s father.

-Apart from God’s grace, we also live in a pace of spiritual barrenness—no hope, no joy, no
peace—

-Romans 8:5 – “The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear
again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him
we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’”
-God’s heart is always for restoration.

-John 10:10 -The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them
a rich and satisfying life.

ACCEPT GOD’S GRACE FOR YOUR SPECIFIC NEED – Verses 9-13

-God’s will is not to simply survive – He wants us to thrive!

-Ephesians 2:3-7 – “Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging
the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the
rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even
when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you
have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the
heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing
riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
Conclusion:
-David’s grace to Mephibosheth is a wonderful picture of God’s grace to us. We are Mephibosheth:

-David’s grace to Mephibosheth is also a pattern for us in serving and ministering to others. We are David.
