Sermon Notes—"What manner of spirit are you?"
Scripture: Luke 9:51-56 "We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ."
Colossians 1:28 (NIV84)

Lesson Text:
51Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 53But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 54And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?" 55But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 56For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them." And they went to another village.
Luke 9:51–56 (NKJV)

Your spirit (i.e. HEART) can SHIFT without you realizing it.

1Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. 
5And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet as a testimony against them."

Luke 9:1-2, 5 (NKJV)

To keep a right spirit remember:

10for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
