Hive – Queen Bee

Hive – Queen Bee

This Sunday at Ventura Lighthouse church we begin a new series title Hive; where we’ll look at the life of a bee hive as it relates to our life in a church. Today’s episode is all about the Queen Bee. In a hive – it’s all about the Queen, her focus for the hive, and the commitment of all the worker bees to her and that one focus. Just as in the church it should be all about the One God, His purpose for His church, and the commitment of each member to Him and His purpose above all.

Follow along with Pastor Matt’s outline here:

1 – One God
John 18:33 Pilate went back into the palace and called for Jesus. He said, “Are you the ‘King of the Jews’?”34 Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own, or did others tell you this about me?”35 Pilate said, “Do I look like a Jew? Your people and your high priests turned you over to me. What did you do?”

A – God Is In Control 
B – God Of All
C – Product VS Position


2 – One Focus

John 18:36 “My kingdom,” said Jesus, “doesn’t consist of what you see around you. If it did, my followers would fight so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews. But I’m not that kind of king, not the world’s kind of king.”37 Then Pilate said, “So, are you a king or not?”Jesus answered, “You tell me. Because I am King, I was born and entered the world so that I could witness to the truth. Everyone who cares for truth, who has any feeling for the truth, recognizes my voice.”


A – The Kingdom

3 – Starts With One

John 18:37 Then Pilate said, “So, are you a king or not?”Jesus answered, “You tell me. Because I am King, I was born and entered the world so that I could witness to the truth. Everyone who cares for truth, who has any feeling for the truth, recognizes my voice.”38 Pilate said, “What is truth?”Then he went back out to the Jews and told them, “I find nothing wrong in this man. It’s your custom that I pardon one prisoner at Passover. Do you want me to pardon the ‘King of the Jews’?”

A – Listen To God
B – Find Truth
