Each year, our deacons insist that I go in for a thorough health examination. Usually the doctor will greet me with a statement like, “Deacons sent you again, huh?” He gets it.A day or two after the exam, the doctor sends me his baseline evaluation that covers the most vital areas of health: vital signs, blood counts, cholesterol levels, and a variety of basic, measurable indicators.The reality is that we can feel healthy without actually being healthy. I suppose all of us have known someone who seemed fine—and a short time later were diagnosed with a terminal illness.The same thing can happen in leadership. We can think we're doing okay, especially if we see outward signs of ministry success. But if we do not give attention to the most basic relationships of our lives, we may be very unhealthy spiritual leaders.In a way, these three relationships seem so basic, we may just assume we're okay. But without health in these three relationships, we have no real ministry.1. A Vibrant Relationship with GodWithout a vibrant, growing relationship with God, we have nothing to give others in ministry.Is your relationship with God passionate? Purposeful? Are you seeking God, or simply seeking success?These are questions we must regularly ask ourselves, for as William Booth said, “Look well to the fire of your soul; it is always the tendency of fire to go out.”God calls us to love Him first and wholly. We are to love Him with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength. That is a vibrant relationship with God.And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.—Mark 12:30Some of the most toxic ministry environments are led by a leader whose personal walk with God is suffering gross neglect. Unless we daily humble ourselves before God, walk in His Spirit, and depend on His grace, we become proud, hard, and demanding leaders.It's not the absence of knowledge or skill that makes poor shepherds of God's people, so often as it is the absence of following the Shepherd ourselves.When we purposefully and passionately seek God's face for ourselves, we easily dispense His grace as we lead others.2. A Growing Relationship with Your FamilyIf you are married, your relationship with your spouse is, humanly speaking, your highest relational priority.And if you are a parent, your relationship with your children is your next highest relational priority.This is so important, that God included these relationships in the qualifications for pastors and deacons (1 Timothy 3:2–5, 12).Years ago, an older pastor, seeing the complete attention I was giving to our church family and the danger of doing it to the neglect of my own family, admonished me with a statement I have never forgotten: “The church is Christ's bride, but Terrie is your bride. The church can get another pastor, but she cannot get another husband.”There is a balance here, for sure. Of course a pastor is to fully engage in what Ephesians 4:12 calls “the work of the ministry.” And I'm grateful for all the ways in which Terrie has encouraged me to passionately invest in ministry and has helped to involve our family in serving together. But I'm also thankful for her reminders over the years to slow down and create family memories.Healthy spiritual leaders do not neglect those for whom God has given them direct responsibility in order to lead others.Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;…And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.—Ephesians 5:25, 6:43. A Resilient Relationship with Your Church FamilyIn today's social media culture, it's easy to gain a virtual following without real leadership credibility. This vulnerability makes the transparency and accountability that God designed to be part of the local church all the more valuable.Simply put, a healthy spiritual leader prioritizes hands-on, personal local church ministry and service—not distant, electronic social media traction.I'm thankful for the tools of technology and the ways in which social media can augment ministry. But when social media becomes our ministry, our spiritual and leadership health is in jeopardy.Outside of my walk with God and responsibility to my family, my greatest calling in life is to be an undershepherd for Christ's church, equipping them to fulfill the Great Commission of reaching the world with the gospel (Matthew 28:19–20). If my ministry activity, then, revolves around anything other than soulwinning, discipleship, and equipping those in my local church for the work of the ministry, I'm moving into dangerous territory as it concerns my leadership health.At the end of the day, healthy ministry is about healthy relationships. It is about loving God, loving our families, and reaching people with the gospel.
A handful Democrats vowed Monday to oppose Rep. Nancy Pelosi's bid to retake the speaker of the House, putting the California Democrat's chances of retaking the job in peril. Sixteen Democrats — 12 incumbent representatives, three incoming House freshmen and one candidate who has not yet won his seat — signed a letter opposing Pelosi's campaign. They […]
I love Thanksgiving for many reasons, but perhaps the greatest is that it helps us schedule a day to do what we should be doing every day of the year—give thanks.Thanksgiving, of course, is more than a holiday—it should be a verb. So how, practically speaking, can we make this a day when we actually give thanks? Here are five suggestions:1. Trust the Sovereignty of GodI don't know that I ever thought of trusting God as being a way to express thankfulness to Him until the year our son, Larry, was diagnosed with cancer the week before Thanksgiving. That year, I remember studying Psalm 100 and recognizing that one of the greatest ways we give thanks to God during times of trial is trusting that He knows more than us and has our best purposes at heart.Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving…—Psalm 100:3–42. Praise God for Who He IsSometimes we feel grateful without actually giving thanks. Hebrews tells us that our praise to God is a sacrifice He loves. Pause this Thanksgiving to meditate on who God is and to give Him thanks for His unchanging attributes.By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.—Hebrews 13:153. Write a Thank You Note to Someone Who Wouldn't Expect ItThis will encourage you and the person you write to! Take a few moments to think of someone who has been an encouragement in your life, and simply jot a note telling them specifically how they have blessed you. (If you're a parent, help your children to do this as well.)I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,—Philippians 1:34. Tell Your Family Why You Are Thankful for ThemDon't let this Thanksgiving pass with a simple “I'm thankful for my family.” Share with your spouse, your children, your parents specific reasons you are thankful for each of them. When Paul expressed to people his thankfulness for them, he almost always followed with specific reasons.First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.—Romans 1:85. Reflect on the Goodness of GodThis takes us back to where we started. God has lavished His goodness on us. We honor Him when we pause to thank Him for it.Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.—Psalm 68:19As Christians, we know the command, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). You probably even have this verse memorized. But sometimes we don't practice it like we know we should.The holiday of Thanksgiving is an awesome time of year to purposefully practice giving thanks.
Temple Baptist Church - 9-9-2018Numbers 13:23-14:3; Deuteronomy 1:1-3, 28Introduction: A. This morning, I want to preach on a subject very familiar to most of us. 1. We live in “fat” times physically but “lean” times spiritually. People who love the LORD and want to make a difference in this world find these days of spiritual discouragement. 2. I am not condoning discouragement as it is sinfulness but just explaining that all of us have this problem at times. 3. I want to look at the causes of and answers to discouragement.B. God brought Israel out of Egypt to bring them into the Promised Land. C. In our text for this morning, we find the children of Israel still in the wilderness, camped at Kadeshbarnea (Kadeshbarnea-Wilderness of the Fugitive or Wandering) but just a “hop-skip-jump” from stepping into the Promised Land—a land flowing with milk and honey! 1. A land flowing with milk and honey. A beautiful type of the child of God living in victory. God brought us out of sinful lives to bring us into a victorious life. God has promised to be with us and for us. 2. And it was such a place. “And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It isa good land which the LORD our God doth give us.” It took two men to carry one bunch of grapes on a pole between them. 3. It was all that God said that it was! In verses 20-21, Moses told the people to “fear not neither be discouraged” Twelve spies were sent into the land and 10 gave an evil report while two gave a good one. The “evil report” discouraged the heart of the people.D. The cost of their discouraged hearts was great.1. Discouragement Traded Eleven Days For Forty Years! Vs. 2-3 Discouragement lengthens your trials and tribulations! They had already made the 11-day trip and were in Kadeshbarnea! All they had to do was cross over Jordan and the land was theirs.2. Discouragement Traded Victory For Defeat! Vs. 40; 45 Discouragement caused an assured victory from the Lord to become a devastating defeat because the Lord was not with them. Discouragement destroyed their joy!3. Discouragement Traded Canaan For The Wilderness! Vs. 25; 40 Canaan was truly a land flowing with milk and honey and the wilderness that they had come through was a barren, arid land. Discouragement will keep your soul dry while denying you the milk and honey that God intended to flood your soul!4. Discouragement Traded Their Burying Place From Canaan To The Wilderness! Vs. 35; 40 “But as for you!” Israel died in defeat! I don't know about you, but I want my life to end right. I want to die serving the Lord, not in discouragement and defeat!E. Thus, it is in our day. Discouragement is a Choice! We hear more people speaking in discouragement than you do rejoicing in victory. We do face much in the way of disappointment in our day and much of it is because of the brethren as well as the world.1. We Face The Discouragement Of Depravity – I have never seen it on this wise. Evil is called good and good is called evil. People have absolutely no morals and America has literally gone to the dogs. So have most of today's churches!2. We Face The Discouragement Of Deceivableness – Preachers and teachers have left the Old Paths of doctrinal correctness and separation for the road of popularity, prosperity, and numbers.3. We Face The Discouragement Of Division – God's people have forgotten who the enemy is and spend most of their time either mad or hurt and on the sidelines while the real battle rages around them un-noticed. Division is a sin and is a result of carnality and immaturity!4. We Face The Discouragement Of Disappointment – Family, friends, failures, etc. Murphy's Law seemingly has become a reality in these last days.F. I call Discouragement Public Enemy #1! Their hearts were discouraged (vs. 28). Sometimes, if you are not careful, you just get tired of the fight! We lose more people to discouragement than sinfulness. We lose more people to discouragement than to apostasy. We lose more people to discouragement than to division.1. They Were Discouraged Because Of The Way Though The Lord Was With Them - Numbers 21:4 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.a. You May Not Be Done Right. People and the world are not your friend spiritually.b. You May Not Be Rewarded Right. There will be times when you are overlooked or just ignored.c. You May Not Have What Others Have. Often, the world and those who do wrong seem to have all the things in life while you have few.(The way will get hard. Life is neither easy nor fair. God is greater than our disappointments.)2. They Were Discouraged By The Giants Though The Lord Was With Them – Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. (We all face “giants” in our lives.)a. Impossible Problems – Giants in our lives that seem to have neither solution nor end. Things that are out of our control become giants and we become grasshoppers in our own sight.b. Personal Failures – Many have the idea that saved people no longer struggle with sin but they are so wrong. Just re-read Romans, chapter 7, where Paul gave us some insight into his personal life. If you fall, just get up again. If you fall 1,000 times, just get up again. One day, we will fail and fall no more.(You will face some giants along the way of life. God is greater than our “giants!”)3. They Were Discouraged By The Brethren Though The Lord Was With Them - Deuteronomy 1:28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities aregreat and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there. a. God's People Are Often Divided. As much as we hate discord, it often becomes a reality to be dealt with.b. God's People Are Often Disgruntled. Evil communications corrupt good manners and being around complaining people causes discouragement.c. God's People Are Often Doubting. When people doubt God, it is contagious.d. God's People Are Often Disappearing. People come, get in, and then begin to disappear. What a discouragement to people who love the church and desire to see it grow.(Pastors, missionaries, evangelists are quitting on every hand. If you are not called, stay out of the ministry. You won't last until the “water gets hot!” People who were once faithful to God and His house are now at home complaining and pointing the finger at others. People that are in God's house have continual issues.)I want to look at two things that should keep us from being discouraged.1. The Lord's Past Performance. God did so many marvelous things for Israel and does the same for us.a. The Lord Had Delivered Them From Egypt - Numbers 33:3 And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of Israel went out with an high han.d in the sight of all the Egyptians.Deuteronomy 4:20 But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.Jeremiah 11:4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God: (God has saved me and delivered me from Satan, self, and the power of sin What a wonderful deliverance He has wrought in my life.)b. The Lord Brought Them Through The Red Sea - Psalms 106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.Exodus 14:22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.Exodus 15:8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.Isaiah 51:10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over? (Not the Sea of Reeds, but “great deep!” The Lord has brought me through some impossible situations and did so in such a way as to let me know that it was Him and Him alone who delivered!)c. The Lord Provided For Them In The Wilderness - Psalms 78:19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?1) God Provided The People With Manna - Psalms 78:23-25 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, 24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. 25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.2) God Provided The People With Water - Deuteronomy 8:15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein werefiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;3) God Provided The People With Clothing - Deuteronomy 8:4 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years. (I can honestly say that the Lord has been so good to me. I have lacked nothing over these past 30 years that I have been saved and do not expect to starve in the future!)(We get discouraged despite what the Lord had done for us.)2. The Lord's Perpetual Promises.a. The Lord Promised Them The Land – vs. 8, 20-21 The land was theirs for the taking and so is a victorious life here in Christ Jesus. Victorious Christian living is ours for the taking. We are over comers through faith in Christ.b. The Lord Promised To Go Before Them – vs. 30 He was before and behind Israel. The angel of the Lord encampeth about them that fear Him.c. The Lord Promised To Fight For Them – vs. 30 Who is able to stand before the Lord. If He is for us, and He is, who can be against us? Nothing is impossible with Him!d. The Lord Promised To Carried Them – vs. 31 He will equip you each day with what you need.(We get discouraged despite the Lord's promises.)Conclusion: vs. 32 Discouragement is simply not believing what the Lord has promised.Discouragement is a common sin among God's people. Discouragement is the sin of unbelief!2 Corinthians 1:10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;
Temple Baptist Church - 9-5-2018Hebrews1. The Epistle to the Hebrews is unique in the New Testament. Its authorship is not clearly noted in the text. However, the most common assumption of authorship is that of Paul. (The King James Bible even gives Paul's name in the title.)Philippians 3:5-6 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; (6) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. (Paul was a “Hebrew of the Hebrews.”)2. The Epistle is unique in its author. The Apostle Paul did not sign his name to the epistle because was hated in many circles among the Jews and they would not accept his apostleship: a. Because he converted from Judaism to Christianity, the Pharisees hated him - Acts 9:23-25 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him: (24) But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him. (25) Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.b. Because he persecuted the church, the Christians feared him -Acts 8:1-3 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. (2) And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. (3) As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.c. In 2 Peter, Peter mentioned a Pauline Epistle written to the “strangers Scattered” which were Jews.2 Peter 3:15-16 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; (16) As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.1) The Jews rejected Christ in John 1:11 but there were some who believed on Him.2) In Romans 1:16, Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”d. Hebrew – the word means to transition or to cross over, a pilgrim. Abraham was the first Hebrew while Jacob was the first Jew. Abraham was a Pilgrim who dwelt in tents all his life while looking for a city with foundations whose Maker was God.Hebrews 11:8-10 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. (9) By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: (10) For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.1. Abraham was the father of Faith - Galatians 3:6-7 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. (7) Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. (These “strangers scattered” were children by faith, therefore, children of Abraham the Hebrew.)Galatians 3:6-7 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. (7) Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.2. As Abraham was a stranger in a strange land, Paul is writing to the dispersed Jews who were also “strangers scattered” among the Gentile people.e. The Epistle was written from Italy (Rome). about the time of Paul's first imprisonment.,Hebrews 13:24 Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints. They of Italy salute you.f. The Epistle was written before the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D. which places it at about the same times as Paul's first imprisonment in Rome.Hebrews 10:11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: (Not stood but “standeth daily.” The priesthood was still making the offerings in the Temple.)g. The Epistle also mentions those who were in bonds or prison, Paul among them.Hebrews 13:3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with the4m; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.h. Timothy is mentioned as “he will come shortly.” Timothy and Titus carried many of the Pauline Epistles to their destinations while Paul was in prison.Hebrews 13:23 Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty; with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.i. Paul signed the Book of Hebrews with his token signature. Hebrews 13:25 Grace be with you all. Amen.2 Thessalonians 3:17-18 The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write. (18) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. The second epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.3. The epistle is also unique in its purpose. The Book of Hebrews is one of the Hebrew Christian Epistles and is transitional in nature. These epistles were Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, and Jude.a. The Hebrew Christian Epistles, also called the Messianic Jewish Epistles, were written to the dispersed Christian Jews as they wrestled with the change from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant.b. To understand these Jewish believers' dilemma, we have to understand their upbringing. You and I are familiar to the Old Covenant, but these were brought up and drilled each day in it.Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (5) And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. (6) And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: (7) And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (8) And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. (9) And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.4. The reason for God using Paul to write Hebrews was because of his background, a Pharisee of the Pharisees.a. The transition from Law to Grace. The Law came by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.b. The transition from the Levitical Priesthood to the individual priesthood of the believer.c. The transition from the High Priest (83 app.) to Jesus Christ our High Priest.d. The transition from the Brazen Altar to Calvary.e. The transition from the daily offerings to the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world.f. The transition from the Temple to the local church.g. The transition from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant. Atonement to Onement!5. The Book of Hebrews also confirmed to the Jewish believers that what they had was “better.” The key word of Hebrews is “better.”a. Jesus Christ is better than angels. People in our day are fascinated with their perception of angels. “Angel in my Pocket,” Angel Lapel Pins, Guardian Angels, Female Angels, angels of all sorts are worn and worshiped.Colossians 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,b. Jesus Christ is better than Moses. Moses, the great Law Giver became an idol of sorts the Jewish people. He was a great man but Jesus was better.John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.c. Jesus Christ is better than Joshua. Joshua, the great Warrior who took Israel across the Jordan River after the death of Moses. Joshua is the Old Testament word for Jesus or Saviour.Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.d. Jesus Christ is better than Aaron. Aaron, the brother of Moses, was one of the greatest of the High Priests and yet he was a man of failure.Hebrews 7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;e. The New Covenant is better than the Mosaic Covenant. The Mosaic Covenant was “do or die” while the new Covenant life eternal.Hebrews 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.f. The epistle shows the greatness of salvation through Jesus Christ.1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.6. Along with its theme of greatness, comes 5 warning sections found within the Epistle.a. 2:1-4 – Neglecting our Great Salvationb. 3:7-4:11 – Hardening our Heartsc. 5:11-6:12 – Dullness of Hearing and Falling Awayd. 10:26-31 – Willful Sine. 12:14-29 – Failing of the Grace of God7. Hebrews ends with instruction and advice for living a Christian life.Conclusion: Next week, we will begin with chapter one.
