Sermon About Pride: Be a servant

 Sermon About Pride: Be a servant

The concept of pride has been around for centuries; 
 In many cultures, pride is seen as a good thing. People should be proud of their achievements; it makes them stronger and helps them to avoid negative thoughts. However, people should be careful about how they express their pride. Being too proud can cause trouble for everyone.

1. Sin is usually candy coated

(Lk. 15:11-18) The Prodigal looked to the far-off country with dazzled eyes thinking that life would be so much better there
The devil tempts with pride and lust (1 Jn. 2:15-16)
The offer of “liberty” is a false one (cf. 2 Peter 2:19)
In actuality it only produces slavery (Jn. 8:34) and death (Rom. 6:23)


In the past, being proud was something to be celebrated. Today, some people think that being proud makes you strong. However, being proud can have negative consequences if you are not careful. It can make you think you are better than other people and lead you to act that way toward them. Being proud can make you refuse to help others when you are in need; instead, you might take advantage of someone who is down and unable to fight back. Being proud can make you act against your own best interests when it comes to ego

2. Power, popularity, prestige, position, and pride are nothing as compared to knowing Christ (Phil. 3:8- 11).

More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ,

First, the love of sin (Hebrews 11:25; 1 John 2:15-16).
(Heb 11:25) choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God, than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin;
(1Jn 2:15-16) Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.

Being too proud can cause trouble for everyone- not just the person getting the pride. Many philosophers have warned us about being prideful towards others and to ourselves. Thomas Aquinas saw pride as the main cause of human conflicts and bloodshed. He believed that we were most prone to pride when we were most immature spiritually.  Therefore, it's important to recognize and avoid being prideful towards others and to ourselves when we are behaving boastfully or unethically.

Be a servant: To the scriptures

All Christians are called to be servants of the scriptures
What does it mean to be a servant of the scripture?
It is to humble ones self and to put God first
It is to lose your life in service to God through scripture
It is the opposite of pride and arrogance, we will never know everything.

2 Peter 3:18.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
To me, to grow in grace is to:
Grow in God’s power.
Get rid of the pride, ego, and attitude of self-sufficiency.
2 Corinthians 12:8-9.

Sermon About Be Strong and Courageous Joshua 1:6-9

 Joshua 1:6-9 Be Strong and Courageous



1. We need to be strong and courageous

Courage is an essential virtue in every person. It is a quality that makes people strong. We admire courage in heroes because it allows us to live inspired lives. Our definition of courage is the willingness to face danger without fear. Without strength of will, a person can become physically and emotionally sick from making poor decisions. Essentially, we must choose to be strong and courageous on both a mental and physical level.

Battle against sin (2 Cor. 10:4; Eph. 6:10-17)
Need to be strong in the faith (1 Cor. 16:13)
Oftentimes have to make tough decisions (Lk. 14:25-33)
God is for us (Rom. 8:31; Heb. 13:5)


2. Observe The Law

We too need to observe the Law, only the Law of Christ (Gal. 6:2)
All the law

Our actions define our character- and have far-reaching consequences on earth or in eternity depending on their moral nature.  Our choices - good or bad - create that which will shape future generations- our own personal greatness


Jesus absolutely required this (Matt. 28:20)
Let the gospel direct our thoughts and actions (Phil. 1:27)
Do not turn to the right or the left
Consider Matthew 7:13-14
Similar to Revelation 22:18-19
Many turn from God’s word to paganism or philosophy or atheism. All offer nothing
Meditate in it day and night
Meditate means “to talk to self” (Psa. 1:1-3)
This produces preparation, a skill in using God’s word (2 Tim. 2:15)

3. Do Not Be Afraid Or Dismayed

These things shouldn’t hinder us
Fear prevents many from doing as they ought to do (Matt. 25:25)

Our character is the stuff from which greatness is made. Even great historical figures had weaknesses that led them down dark paths. 

Jesus had His His mission; when asked if He was God's Son, on the cross as He submitted Himself into death so that we may be saved.

Fear is a companion of torment (1 Jn. 4:18)
To be dismayed is to be discouraged.
Hope is an antidote (Heb. 6:19)
The dismay of the disciples was offset by the news of His resurrection (Jn. 20:20)

 Jesus asserted that he came to provide justice for sin, liberate mankind from a unconscionable condition, and give mankind an opportunity to become sons of God. He also stated that his disciples would have authority over all devils and powers of death. He went on to state that when his disciples heard this word, they would believe it and submit to it- whereupon they would receive eternal life.

The Gospel is the Power of God to Salvation to Those who are Lost Rom. 1:16

Christians are the only Messengers of the Lord to carry the Gospel to a Lost and Dying World 2 Tim.2:2; Heb.5:12-14

The First Century Christians

  • On an Individual Basis Acts 8:35-39
  • Invite Sinners into Our Homes to Study the Gospel Matt. 9:9-13; Acts 10:24
  • Teach Those in Error Acts 18:24-26
  • Teach Family, Friends, Neighbors and Co-Workers Acts 8:35-39
  • Be an Example to the Unbelievers Col. 4:5-6

Open up your mouth

“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him.” (Acts 8:35)

Ask, “Where do you go to church?”

Paul opened his eyes and saw the idols then he opened his mouth!

Aquilla and Pricilla listened to Apollos and then they “taught him more perfectly the word


“The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged.” (2 Tim. 2:24)

“The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged.” (2 Tim. 2:24)

Bond-servant – that is you and me – every Christian is a bond-servant!

Not to be quarrelsome – argumentative

Abel to teach – Greek word, didaktikos – meaning “skilful in teaching”

Notice, twice in this chapter Paul mentions being trained!

He used two different Greek words to express it!

The Last call to Evangelism


What Can Be Done?

Evangelism – Young people who bring friends, friends from work, from liberal brethren.

Location, location, location!

Unlock purse strings to support evangelism.

Using different forms of media – radio, etc. (advertising)

Discipline towards those who walk disorderly – Negativism needs to cease!

Looking for curriculum that is more kid friendly.


Matthew 18:10-14 Qualifications For The Kingdom

Evangelism is necessary for our growth

4 I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, 5 hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, 6 that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Phil 1


Our Fire Can Light The World

Evangelize

True concern for the lost

Matthew 9:36-38

36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

Must expose sin

7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.

Taught Individuals Acts 8:35-39

Entire World Heard the Gospel Col. 1:23


Acts 8:1-4

I am very proud of the first century Christians. Despite persecution, they went out and taught the world.

During one generation the whole world was taught the Gospel. (Col. 1:23, “…gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven…”

I believe the subject that we are going to study today is the most important of subjects.

It is the most important reason Jesus came to this earth.

It is the simplest subject that we can study.

Yet, it is the most neglected subject discussed in the church today.

Evangelism is not rocket science

There are plenty of people seeking the truth.

I believe we too often make up excuses why we don’t do more personal evangelism.

I have heard all kinds of excuses:


They were able to bring the message of the Gospel to the known world in one Generation!

“Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.”

“...and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul was made a minister. ”

“Go therefore and of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age”

Sermon About Conversion: Why Do You Wait

 Sermon About Conversion: Why Do You Wait 

When Jesus began preaching, he addressed the topic of what a person must do to be saved. In hissermon, he suggested repentance:repent… and believe in the gospel.' After proclaiming repentance, Jesus proceeded to address sin, forgiveness, baptism and the importance of believing in his name.

Why Do You Wait Dear Sinner

Look Acts 22:16
Why Wait?
There was a sense of urgency in the ministry of Jesus (Jn. 9:4)
There was a sense of urgency in the conversions in the book of Acts (2:37,41; 8:36-38; 16:33; 22:16; 26:28-29)
There was a sense of urgency in restoring the erring Christian (Acts 8:20-24)

Repentance & Remission of sins
(1) Repentance – duty to be performed
(2) Remission – blessing to be enjoyed

In Jesus Name

(1) For through him salvation comes
(2) For by his authority
- Salvation offered
- Repentance is demanded

Different Ways To Be Forgiven Of Sins
After conversion, how would one receive forgiveness of sins?
Ask someone to pray for you?
Do an abundance of good deeds?
Go to church?

1 John 1:9 (NKJV) 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Acts 8:22 (NKJV) 22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.

Sermon About Salvation: Do not neglect

 Sermon About Salvation: Do not neglect

Those  Who Neglecet Salavation

Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just reward,
how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him
Hebrews 2
Observational Facts
Salvation can be neglected
Salvation is an individual’s responsibility
If salvation is neglected, we cannot escape Heaven’s penalty

Explained As Salvation By Grace Through Faith (Eph. 2:4-10)


Begins with the great love of God (v. 4)
Grace & mercy are founded upon the great love God has for all (Jn. 3:16; Rom. 5:6)
This love is not because of who we are, but who God is (1 Jn. 4:8-10)
Involves the “rich mercy” of God (v. 4)

The Helmet of Salvation
Paul uses the same language found in Isaiah 59:17
Paul says the same thing in 1 Thess. 5:8
The Helmet of Salvation
Past salvation protects from the fatal blow of sin (Lk. 1:77; Acts 4:12)
Present salvation protects from the fatal blow of worldliness (2 Cor. 7:10; Phil. 2:12; 1 Pet. 2:2)
Future (hope) salvation protects from fatal blow of apostasy (1 Thess. 5:8-9; 2 Tim. 2:10; Heb. 9:28; 1 Pet. 1:5, 9)

“Mercy” is defined by Vine as “the outward manifestation of pity”
Available to all (cf. 1 Tim. 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9)
Involves being “quickened … together” with Christ (Eph. 2:5)
Those who were dead are made alive (Eph. 2:1)
The “with Christ” aspect is fully explained in Colossians 2:11-13

Sermon About Reborn: Born Again


 1 Peter 1:3-5

Reborn

What does "generated" mean?

“To completely change someone's mind, so that they live a new life and according to God's will” (Thayer)

Reference to the new birth (John 3:3-5)

Results in being quickened {vivified} (Ephesians 2:1; col. 2:13)

workmanship of God (Ephesians 2:10)

This is the working {work} of God (Col. 2:12)

Baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38)

Resurrected to walk in newness of life (Rom 6:3-5)

Entered into Christ (Gal 3:26-27)

A new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Generated by the word of God (1 Peter 1:23)


1. Positive Change Colossians 3:5-17

The change

Kill the old man and his works (v. 5-9)

“Mortifying” (KJV) is “Killing to death” (NKJV)

The “members” (sinful activities) are part of the very being

“I walked some time” (v. 7)

“lived in them” (v. 7)

These things being put to death are similar to other references (Rom 6:6, 11, 14; Gal 2:20; 5:24)

The terminology used indicates a suddenness of the end

Put on the new man and his good works (vv. 10-17)

Something is needed to fill the void.

A new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Born again (John 3:3-5; 1 Peter 1:23)

Like new babies (1 Peter 2:2)

Characterized by new levels of engagement and appreciation

Love (v. 14)

Grateful (v. 15)

Concern for others (vs. 13, 16)

Disposition (v. 17)


2. He who believes Born Again

 is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe,

be condemned. Mark 16:16.

Christ is saying that mere intellectual assent is not enough.

There must be a union with him, a real change, like the vegetable to the pickle!

Now, if you tell people that I'm saying to be baptized is to be pickled, you'd be right.

Is that so.

It's not just a wash and clean, it's a time of permanent change.



3. You Can Change: Born Again

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How can we who are dead to sin live any longer in it?

The new birth - - Romans 6:1-6

What is God doing in Christ

Conclusion

To accept salvation - whether by faith or physical rebirth - is becoming a born-again Christian. After accepting Jesus as your savior, you will follow his commandments and strive to live a holy life according to his example.

The command that comes after accepting Jesus as your savior is to surrender your life to him trusting in his sacrifice for your sins. This involves believing that Jesus is God incarnate on Earth and that he died for you while you were still a sinner. It also involves confessing your sins and asking God's redemption through Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross. After recognizing his need for salvation, Jesus commands his followers to preach the gospel and make disciples. Discipleship involves continuing to trust Christ as you apply what you learn spiritually to daily life.
