Happy Boxing day! --Hillsong teaching - Robert Fergurson

I thought it was gonna be Christine Caine today as it was advertised as the mighty women of faith month and I was all prepared for a full on evangelical type of preaching today. But unexpectly, Ps Robert Fergurson preached about the theology of the boxes as today is the boxing day.

He gave us three box laws:
1. Boxes are designed to protect the content.
Like Noah's ark is a type of box. It is to save the people and the animals and the future of the world. We need to concentrate the inside not the outside, the purpose not the means, the living not the dead. The ark in and out itself is not important.
2. Boxes without contents are empty of purpose.
No one wants to find out at the end of the query that the box is empty. Our lives are only with purpose when God fills with what He wants to fill.
3.Boxes are usually designed for safe keeping and safe packaging.
They are to move what is precious to Him to somewhere else. God is interested in your progress and your growth, not your religion. It is Jesus inside you that will bring purpose and fulfilment to your life.

Then he gave us 5 boxes to take into the new year.
1.The box that presents
Numbers 10:33 talks about the ark of covenent which is also a type of box, that represented the presence of God. We need to take God's presence into the new year, not the old tradition and religion.
2. The box of promise
The reason that Jesus rebuked the pharasees was because everything they did was for men to see. When we have the true life of Jesus inside of us, it will bring changes into our lives.
3. The box of worship
Mark 14 talks about the alabaster jar, the extravagant worship. It's the totally abandonment of ourselves. Jesus poured his life out for us, and we want to do something that's gonna cost us something. It's never a waste for Jesus Christ.
4. The box of generosity
God loves generous givers.
5. The box of treasure
2Cor4:6 talks about let the light shine. The body is a box of flesh. When Jesus comes to live inside, then suddenly it has purpose.
Boxes are to protect what is precious. Without Jesus, the body is an empty vessle filled with broken dreams.
