False Teachers (1 Timothy 4:1-5)07/19/15
Some false teachers are deceived themselves. Others know they are spreading falsehood in an attempt to draw other disciples away. Whether the motivation is greed, power or something else, we are all vulnerable if we do not know the truth.
God's Technique (Romans 8:28)
In all things, God works for the good of those who love Him. This is the promise of a God who is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, and eternal. So we can be assured that He is consistent and faithful to fulfill His promises.
Deacon Who? (1 Timothy 3:8-13, Acts 6)
All believers are called to serve and have been given gifts we can use to do so. The word deacon means one who serves, but a title is not necessary. Just be about the Father's business. Deacon who? Deacon you!
God's Household, The Church (1 Timothy 3:14-16)
God has established three institutions: Marriage, Government, and the Church. The church is God's household and the word means "the called-out." It is a family, not a building and Jesus is at its center.
God Our Father (2 Thessalonians 2:16, Luke 15:11-31)
Our Heavenly Father loves us unconditionally. He is filled with compassion, not condemnation. When one of His sheep returns to Him, He is truly a happy Father. Fathers everywhere can learn from His example.
Overseer, Elder, Shepherd Qualifications (1 Timothy 3:2-7)
Personal character, the witness of the home, teaching aptitude, and a measure of experience are four of God's main standards for leadership in the church. Problems that prevent a leader from fulfilling his position include lack of character.
Overseer, Elder, Shepherd (1 Timothy 3:1)
The Bible uses the words overseer, elder, and shepherd interchangeably. Those who are called to this position must serve willingly, not for power or obligation. They are to teach, preach, direct the church and shepherd the flock; truly a high calling!
Men and Women in the Church (1 Timothy 2:8-15)
God has defined different roles for men and women in the church. Men are to step up and take the lead in prayer, teaching, leadership and worship. Women are to be active with their good deeds. Christianity respects both roles equally.
Only One Way (1 Timothy 2:5-7)
There is only one way to heaven and to have a relationship with God and that is Jesus who gave himself as a ransom for our sins. This truth is repeated many times, including in Matthew 7, John 10, John 14, and Acts 4.
Does God Hear Us? (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
Although things seem bad in the world today, think how much worse it could be if God's people did not pray. We are told to pray for our leaders, even when they make ungodly decisions. Prayer may not change them, but it changes us and pleases God.
Fight the Good Fight, Part II (1 Timothy 1:18-20)
Jesus is alive and He continues to speak to us through Holy Scripture, His Holy Spirit, creation, circumstances, and through others. Hold on to His word so that you may fight the good fight. If anyone hears His voice He will come in and sup with them.
Fight the Good Fight! (1 Timothy 1:18-20)
Knowing that God has called us for a purpose will help us get through the discouraging times. We need to recognize that we are in a battle with the world, the flesh and the devil. Jesus works through our conscience to keep us from danger.
Christ Jesus Came Into the World to Save Sinners (1...
Jesus came, not just to be a prophet and an example, but to be a savior. No one can say they are too far-gone to be saved. Although we are great sinners, He is a great savior!
Sheep and Goats
What is the meaning of life and why do so many people choose the wide road that leads to destruction? They do not seem to care, but our commission is to give them the Good News so that God may rescue them.
Can God Use You and Me? (1 Timothy 1:11-14)
Continually ask God the purpose for which you have been called. Guard that thing and be faithful in it, recognizing that we bring nothing to the task except our sinfulness, but that God provides the strength mercy, grace, love, and faithfulness we...
Peace Be With You (John 20)
One phrase Jesus repeated after His resurrection was, "Peace be with you." We can be thankful for His peace during times of sadness and doubt, but that peace is also a means by which we can be encouraged to His service.
False Teachers/False Doctrine Vs. Sound Doctrine Part 2 (1...
We need to be on guard from false teachers who would mislead us through fancy words without knowledge. True teaching will always conform to the Gospel of redemption and will echo whole, uncorrupt, and healthy doctrine.
The One Thing Worth Everything (Mt 13:44-46)
What would you give up everything for? Jesus gave up everything for the sake of God's people. Does your relationship with Him define and direct all other aspects of your life? Are you sacrificing anything (money, beauty, friends, etc.) to follow Him?
Hold on tho the Promises of Jesus
What things do you collect and why? We not only collect physical items, but also thoughts and patterns of thinking. Some of these are automatic and negative. The Bible gives us promises that can be a positive alternative to the "A.N.T.s."
Blessings of Justification
The book of Romans makes it clear that all of humanity is guilty before God. Yet faith is the door to justification and with it come many blessings, including peace, access to grace, grace to stand, joy in tribulation, perseverance, and character.
