Luke 8:40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him. Jesus was basically run out of town on a rail. The man who had been demon possessed had gone home changed. He began to share his testimony of what Jesus had done for him. He made quite the impression on the people in the community because when Jesus returned the people were anxiously awaiting His arrival. They heard the preaching and believed because of what they had seen in the life of this man. Jesus sent the man home. The man became a great witness. That is our responsibility. We are to know God. We are to allow God to change our lives. We are to tell others what happened. We are to prepare people to believe the truth of Jesus Christ. We make a difference in the lives of others when we share the difference Christ has made in our lives. Tell your family and friends about Jesus and make a difference.
Mark 4:34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples. Jesus spent lots of alone time with His disciples. When He was with them He explained what He was preaching and teaching. This is a picture of how we are to teach people. They hear the messages but need to be able to ask questions and get to understand. Some of the best work we do is not from the pulpit but in the pew. We can discuss the truths. We can help them to understand. That is what Jesus was doing. Get some people. Spend time alone with them. Teach them the truths of the Word of God.
Temple Baptist Church - 8-30-20171 Peter 5:1-4Introduction: A. As Peter begins this last portion of his epistle to the Jewish believers, he instructs the elders or pastors of the local churches.B. First, we see the importance and establishment of the local church. Verse 2 says, “Feed the flock of God which is among you.”1. The word “flock” speaks of gathering. God has always intended for His sheep to assemble.2. The phrase “which is among you” tells me that this flock is one of many and is local to your home. I know that in some areas you cannot find a good, Bible believing church to attend and must drive great distances to find one, but I am always suspicious of those who pass many good churches to come to yours because “it is the only one that does not compromise.” I am against compromise and will not attend a liberal church, but many times, it is the problem of the traveler and not the churches.3. In Hebrews 10, Paul exhorted these dispersed Jewish believers to be faith to their local church.C. Pastors are God called men who are giving the responsibility of caring for the local church. When our Lord resurrected, He gave gifts to the local church to serve in His absence.a. He gave the gift of the Evangelist. This is the missionary. The word “evangelist” means to bring good news or glad tidings. He is to preach the gospel to every creature. These missionaries are sent out of local churches (Acts 13) and are responsible to their sending church.b. He gave the gift of the Pastor-Teacher. These are God called men (not women) who are biblically qualified to oversee the local church. These men are also qualified to teach or feed the local church. D. The pastor is God's under shepherd who comforts and cares for His sheep. Ephesians 4:12-14 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (14) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;E. The pastor is not a dictator! It is God's house, God's flock and God's sheep, not the pastor's. F. Now let us look at the work of the pastor.1. He is to feed the flock.a. Study. This takes hard, diligent work – 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.b. Approved unto God. Preaching what God wants preached - Acts 20:26-27 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.c. Not ashamed of what he believes. 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.d. Rightly dividing the word of truth. Isaiah 28:10, 13 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little … (13) But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.2. He is to take the oversight of the flock.a. He is to willingly watch. 1) Not by constraint. Though he is a God called man, pastoring a local church should be the love of his life.2) Not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. Though he lives by the gospel, money should not be his purpose.b. He is to diligently watch. 1) Watch for false prophets - Acts 20:29-31 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.2) Watch for false doctrine - 1 Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.3. He is to be an example to the flock - 1 Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.a. In word – his message - 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.b. In conversation – his life - 2 Corinthians 6:3-4 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,c. In charity – his love - 2 Corinthians 12:15 And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.d. In spirit – his fervency - Romans 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;e. In faith – his confidence - Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.f. In purity – his holiness - 1 Thessalonians 2:10 Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:
When you think of Church, what comes to your mind? A building? Stain-glass windows? The Bible? Preaching? Singing? Sitting? Standing? How about people? By the way, whose Church is it anyway? The Denomination’s? The people who go there? Is it the pastor’s church? How about God’s? Is it really His Church? If the Church really…
Temple Baptist Church - 8-27-2017Luke 1:39-45Introduction:A. This morning, I want to look in the New Testament at the last of the Old Testament prophets, John the Baptist. First, let me set the background for the message.B. For 4,000 years, since the first Messianic Promise in Genesis 3:15 until the birth of Christ, the world waited for the promised “Seed of the Woman.” C. For 400 years between Malachi's prophecy and the beginning of the New Testament, God spoke not one word! These have been called the “400 Silent years.” 1. As the Old Testament prophecy came to an end, hope declined and religion took its place. Now they had both the temple and synagogues. 2. They had priests as well as Pharisees and Sadducees. Israel went from the purity of an inward righteousness to the impurity of an outward righteousness. D. At the time of our Lord's birth, Israel and the world sat in spiritual darkness and bondage to Rome. Few looked for the long-promised Messiah and his birth was shrouded in obscurity.Matthew 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.E. In fulfillment Isaiah 40:3, Zacharias and Elisabeth begat a son whom God named John. Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.F. John the Baptist was a second cousin to our Lord Jesus Christ and six months older. John and the Lord Jesus grew up together. He grew up with the Lord and knew not that it was Him that was promised.G. There are many similarities between the first and second comings of our Lord. There are also many similarities between the forerunner, John the Baptist, and the church.1. John Was Great Because He Was A Chosen Man - John 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. (To be commissioned for a special task or mission. We are a chosen generation.)2. John Was Great Because He Was A Godly Man - Luke 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. (John lived a clean life for the Lord. We are to live a clean life for the Lord.)3. John Was Great Because He Was A Burning Man - John 5:35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. (Before John could shine for God, first, he had to burn for God. He was willing to put all his energy into the work of God. We are to shine for God as the light of the world.)4. John Was Great Because He Was A Preaching Man - Matthew 3:1-2 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (John preached the way of salvation and the coming of the Messiah. We preach the way of salvation and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.)5. John Was Great Because He Was A Humble Man - John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease. (John knew that he was not there to place himself on a pedestal but to glorify and point people to Christ. We that are saved are to glorify Christ and point sinners to Him.)6. John Was Great Because He Was Just A Man - Luke 7:19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?1. As John the Baptist walked with God in expectancy, he was “the voice of one.”a. Not “a” voice but “the” voice. There were many voices of religion in John's day but only one voice of salvation. Thus, it is with our day. b. Many religions and denominations clamor for the attention of the world, causing much spiritual confusion. Their “voice” is always the Bible plus or minus something. These make the Bible adapt to their doctrines instead of adapting their doctrines to the Bible. God has always had one voice and one way of righteousness, God's Word.c. Today's religion attacks the Word of God by reducing it to a manmade version instead of a God made Bible!2. As John the Baptist walked with God in expectancy, he cried aloud in a world that was a spiritual “wilderness.”a. Crying means to proclaim loudly. John the Baptist was a prophet and a preacher. Until the day of our Lord's public appearance, John continue to be the voice of righteousness crying in the spiritual wilderness of this world.b. We who are expecting the soon return of our Lord are to be crying aloud in the sinful wilderness that we live in. How shall they hear without a preacher and that preacher is you; that preacher is me.c. As in Noah's day, they may not listen but they will know who we are and what we preach.3. As John the Baptist walked with God in expectancy, he “prepared the way of the Lord.”a. John the Baptist was the plowman. He prepared the ground for the seed to be planted. That preparation is repentance of sin. First, it takes a recognition of what sin is and a godly sorrow for that sin.b. John the Baptist was the sower as he prophesied of the Lord's coming and point the people to “the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.”c. We who expect the Lord to come need to continue to preach and stand against sinfulness, preach and teach repentance, and point the world to Christ. We must decrease while our Lord Jesus Christ increases.Conclusion: We are to occupy until He comes. We look for Him expectantly as His coming is imminent. Titus 2:11-14 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, (12) Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; (13) Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (14) Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
