BEING God's People
Pastor Mike Hodges
2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people…”
How do you become one of God's people? Salvation
Acts 2:38, 4:12
Salvation is not something you create, it's something you accept.
“...who are called by my name…”
He wants you more than you want him.
“…will humble themselves…”
Humility to recognize God's grace - mercy – forgiveness.
Prayer is not about a monologue but a conversation.
“…and seek my face…”
Are we seeking God’s truth as his people?
“…and turn from their wicked ways…”
Turn = 180 degrees
“…then will I hear from heaven…”
Does God answer your prayers?
“…and will forgive their sin…”
1 John 1:9
He promises to forgive if we confess.
“…and will heal their land.”
