Doing More Than Listen:



Baptized in Obedience
Baptism is an issue of obedience to God, not a matter of salvation.

Homework:

Read - Psalm 51-53
Memorize - Psalm 51:7
Apply - Obedience to God must supersede fear and anxiety over all other things. Pray for strength to boldly share your faith in Him (Ephesians 3:20-21), His peace that you have through all situations (John 14:27), and the hope that you have in Him (1 Peter 3:15). Faith in Christ is not a private matter, but must be public knowledge that is expressed in the lifestyle of the child of God. Let us all boldly with gentleness and respect proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ beginning with obedience to His Word and submission to His will.

Going Forth To Restore Worship
Worship of God must be the priority of Godís people in spite of opposition.

Homework:

Read - Acts 9-11
Memorize - Acts 9:31
Apply - The will of God is proclaimed throughout the Bible in both Testaments. Worship is done whenever people are obedient to doing what the Father has willed. Therefore, worship in the work place by living up to Godís kingdom ethics (Obadiah 15; Mathew 7:12). Worship God as a family in the home by regularly reading Godís Word and sharing what He has been doing (Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Luke 10:25-37). Promote unity of the Spirit by encouraging and holding one another accountable in the congregation where you worship (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; 1 Corinthians 5:9-13).

Receiving Truth to Live
Truth is revealed in the carrying out of what is said to be true.

Homework:

Read - John 14-16
Memorize - John 15:11
Apply - There are many distractions that arise when reading Godís Word because there are forces that are desperately trying to keep you from it which is why you must be all the more determined to read the Bible. Read the Proverbs for wise sayings that will help you in dealing with issues that arise (Proverbs 10:18, 24:19-20, 29, 26:18-19). Read in order to seek out what Godís will is for His people (Matthew 18:12-14; John 6:40; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8, 5:16-18; 1 Peter 2:15, 4:19). Make whatever sacrifices you need to make in order to read the Word of God daily. If you are struggling with understanding what is being read, join a Bible study or seek out Pastor Tom, Pastor Drew, or Pastor Jason for assistance.
