Proverbs 19:4 Wealth maketh many friends; But the poor is separated from his neighbour. Wealth, money, riches, will make you friends. This is something the missionary has to be aware of on the field. If you live in a poor country then you will be even richer. You had enough money to fly over there. You need to know that they just might be liking your money more than they like you or the gospel. That calls us to a very careful handling of our money, our wealth. People with money get and have more influence than they might should have. They might not use it correctly. They get used to getting things their way. They want control. Remember that as you go to the field. Do not let your money get to be a problem. You see what the proverb says, if you are poor even your neighbor doesn't like you. If you are rich they all do! Let's love genuinely. Let's be careful to really be a blessing and not seek to just have our own agenda!
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:
We had another great day in the house of the Lord here at Vision Baptist Church! We had a total of 254 people in Sunday school and 304 in the morning service. We were able to hear from Jason King before he leaves on the 11th for Argentina. We also had the privilege to hear briefly from Bro. Randy Stirewalt, missionary to Kenya. Bro. Austin preached “Religion or Jesus” from Mark 3. Sunday evening we got to license 2 young men to preach the gospel, Mitch McCormick and Jens Looney. Please pray for these young men. In addition to getting licensed to preach, Jens Looney was our 5 minute preacher. We also had the opportunity to of a Q&A time with Bro. Stirewalt. As a missionary in Kenya for over 40 years with over 300 church plants and over 75.000 people in those churches on a Sunday, he was a great kickoff to our upcoming Mission’s conference. Please joins us this Thursday for our Mission’s Conference. At 6:30 p.m. we will have missionaries available for small group Q&A’s.
Temple Baptist Church - 7-30-2017Romans 1:8-15Introduction:A. In these verses, we find the heart of the great apostle laid bare before us. Paul was possibly the greatest missionary to ever live. He had a passion for God, though in ignorance, before his salvation. When he was saved in Acts, chapter 9, that passion did not cool down. His love for a people whom he had never met shows up in these verses. I want to take a short look at them tonight.B. Paul's heart:1. Paul had a Thankful Heart – verse 8. We live in days of jealous hearts of men who preach the gospel. I am all for separation when the Bible commands it, but we often spend our time “wrestling” with flesh and blood instead of principalities, powers, and wickedness in high places. We need to thank God for every man of God, every Bible preaching church, every soul winner, and every soul won to Christ. Many forget who the enemy is, that sinners are dying without Christ, and we are on the same side!Philippians 1:15-18 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will: (16) The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: (17) But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel. (18) What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.2. Paul had a Prayerful Heart – verse 9. If we cannot personally reach souls in other lands, we can pray for them. Our Lord's prayer request should be ours. We have a prayer list here at church where we share our prayer time with people on the list that we do not know. We need to pray for Christ's request.Luke 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.1 Timothy 2:1-4 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; (2) For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (3) For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; (4) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.3. Paul had a Willing Heart – verse 10. Paul did not ask or send others of go, he was more than willing. Isaiah was willing after his eyes beheld the Lord, high and lifted up. Paul was willing to go. Do we have that willingness to just go across town or to the store or in the neighborhood to share the gospel. If thee is a willingness, then that willingness will find a way.Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.Acts 9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.4. Paul had a Sharing Heart – verse 11. Paul's desire was to establish the Roman believers with sound doctrine. It is sound, biblical doctrine that will hold both the believer and the local church when the storms come. So many churches in the south have no doctrinal grounding. Paul continued to use the phrase “but I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren.”Psalms 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.5. Paul had a Caring Heart – verse 12. Paul understood that we must stand together with out churches of like precious faith. Though we are an independent Baptist Church, I do care about the spiritual and physical condition of others. As in Nehemiah's day, we are spread thinly about the wall with a construction tool in one hand and a sword in the other. When needed, one can call and others respond.2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; (4) Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.3 John 3-4 For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. (4) I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.6. Paul had a Purposed Heart – verse 13. The clearest verses concerning Paul's love for the Lord and the ministry is found in the Book of Philippians. His earnest expectation and hope was to magnify Christ either by life or death.Philippians 1:20-21 According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. (21) For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.7. Paul had a Debtor's Heart – verse 14. Though the Lord appeared to Paul individually on the Damascus Road, the “pricks” that our Lord spoke of were varied. Paul had a knowledge of the Lord's life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection because he was “in the know.” He also had the privilege to watch the martyrdom of some of God's choice servants such as John the Baptist. Those who died left a witness that brought Paul to Christ and he now owed that same witness to the rest of this lost world.Acts 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.8. Paul had a Ready Heart – verse 15. Paul was ready to try the doors of opportunity and walk through them as they opened. Acts 9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.2 Timothy 4:1-2 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; (2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
Missionary Objective The Missionary Objective is to 1) see people saved, discipled, and grow to maturity in the church 2) pour your life into discipleship and training leaders and eventually 3) see this reproduced by men going out to start more churches.
