Sermon Outline April 2,2017

“ The Roads to Betrayal and Betrothal”

A Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Journey to betrayal.

Luke 22:41-42 (KJV)  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,  Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

John 18:1-8 (KJV) 1  When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

Judas’s choice to betray. 2  And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

Religion betrays our Lord.. 3  Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

Jesus surrenders to Love. 4  Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? 5  They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

Powerless Authority 6  As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7  Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 8  Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: Peter’s Nobility turns into denial. John 18:10-Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. 11  Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? 12  Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 13  And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year. 14  Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

Marriage with Jesus Christ

           Hosea 2:19 (KJV)  And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in ercies.

Sermon Notes, Part Two “Heaven’s Amenities” Message four of Sermon Series “Peeking Through the Gates Of Heaven”. March 12, 2017

Posted in Uncategorized on March 11, 2017 by jacobschurch

Amenity #1 Immortality (New Incorruptible Body)

Amenity #2 New Real Estate (NEW Heaven and New Earth)

Amenity #3 Social Life (Friends in Heaven )                                                                                                                                                                                                   “Your good reputation is eternal’

1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Luke 16:9-10 (KJV)  And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.  He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

Amenity # 4 Protected from the Wrath of God

Matthew 24:21 (KJV) 21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 (KJV)  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

John 3:16-18 (KJV)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Luke 21:36 (KJV)  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJV)  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Amenity #5 Worship

Revelation 5:13 (KJV) And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Peeking Through the Gates of Heaven Sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge “Heaven’s Amenities” “First Amenity of Heaven: Immortality”

Posted in Uncategorized on March 3, 2017 by jacobschurch

Resurrection

I took this picture several years ago, while on vacation in Florida. The morning was calm, peaceful and reminded me of immortality We are presenting a sermon series our church that I’ve entitled “Peeking through the Gates of Heaven”.

What happens when we die?

What will Heaven look like?

Who will be there?

Will I have a new body?

The Bible says a great deal about the journey, the place, and the amenities we can look forward to enjoying there.

Join us this week as we look at the first amenity, Immortality. You may be surprised at what Christians can look forward to in Heaveen. Service begins at 9:30 AM on Sunday. Notes from bulletin below:

Peeking Through the Gates of Heaven  Sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge “Heaven’s Amenities”First Amenity of Heaven: Immortality

Great minds and great people have searched for immortality. All the time it’s right there in the Bible free for the asking.

A sad conclusion of human brilliance. “I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, …Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or   ridiculous egotism. ~ Albert Einstein, as quoted in his New York Times Obituary, April 19, 1955)

  1. Death’s enemy: Immortality (New Body and Resurrection)

1 Corinthians 15:51-56 (KJV) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  O death, where is thy sting?     Romans 8:21 (KJV)  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

2 Peter 1:4 (KJV)  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2 Timothy 1:10 (KJV)  But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

 

  1. New Real Estate

2 Peter 3:12-13 (KJV)  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Revelation 21:1-6 (KJV)  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away

Ezekiel 28:13 (KJV) Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

John 14:2 – In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Revelation 22:1-5 (KJV) And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Peeking Through the Gates of Heaven    Sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Things we want to cover in this series.

Where is Heaven? Is Heaven a physical place?

Things that were,   Things that are.   Things that will be.

  • Earththe and  New Earth,
  • Paradise Abraham’s bosom, Hell,

Revelation 1:18, “I am he who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”

  • Heaven,   New Heaven, New Jerusalem,
  • Physical Spiritual Being

Mission of Heaven   Luke 15: 10 (KJV)  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth

Desire for Heaven   Hebrews 11:16 (KJV)  But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Loved ones cheering us on.   Hebrews 12:1-2 (KJV)  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Administrating Government   Revelation 5:7-10 (KJV)  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Past Death of Saints    Luke 16:22-23 (KJV)  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

.Support for the Saints    Romans 8:34-35 (KJV)  Who is he that           condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Prayers For Us In Heaven     Hebrew 7:29  Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

Next week: “Heavens Residents”

Join Us AS We Remember The Heroes Of 911

Posted in Annoucement, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on September 8, 2016 by jacobschurch

This Sunday September 11, 2016 will be the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. We will honor the victims, heroes, and their families as we remember them in our prayers and words of condolences.

Let’s not forget to give a hearty thank you to their comrades, all the first responders, the fireman, the police, the soldiers and the medical staff in our lives today.

We also will worship and give thanks to God for keeping us safe through these days of evil aggression.

We, at Jacob’s Church, will be having a special Sunday service in which we will remember them.

Testimonies of that day will be shared by:

Dwayne Smith, who was part of the Secret Service Team that secured the White House on 911. He was assigned to protect the presidential family and the White House Staff and was on duty that day. He’ll share some of those memories.

Rori Cannon Daughtridge, now Pastor Daughtridge’s daughter-in law, did not go to work that day. She normally walked by the Trade Center but from the riverside in terror she watched the second plane crashed into the tower. Her future husband, Ryan, was in Africa calling everyone he knew to find out if she was alright. Though they we estranged for two years he knew the love of his life was somewhere near that Trade Center. Rori can tell the rest of the story.

Pastor Richard will sing ‘Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning.

The sermon for Sunday will be, “Out of the Rubble Stood a Cross” by Pastor Richard.

We will have a prayer for the families of the 911 tragedy, for the first responders that protect us today and for America, the nation we love.

Service will begin at 9:30 AM Directions 495 Harbaugh Valley Road just off Rt.16 between Blue Ridge Summit and Emmittsburg. Proceed east on Route 16 out of Waynesboro, after Blue Ridge Sportsman club turn right at next road. Church is just up the road on right. Look for sign on Rt.16 and Harbaugh Valley Road.

Down For The CountDown for the Count ”   Pentecost Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge May 15, 2016

Round One: Crucifixion

Round Two: Resurrection

Round Three: Holy Spirit Sent  

 

“Now get up !”

 

Leviticus 23:16-17 Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath [i.e. of Passover], and then present an offering of new grain to the LORD. From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits to the LORD.

 

John 4:34 (KJV)  Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

 

Numbers 28:26 On the day of firstfruits, when you present to the LORD an offering of new grain during the Festival of Weeks (i.e. Pentecost), hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work.

 

Acts 1:1-5 (KJV)  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2  Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3  To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4  And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5  For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Acts 1:8 (KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

John 14:26 (KJV)  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Romans 8:11, “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.”                                               “Now get up!”

Special Conclusion this Sunday.” From a Thorn to a Throne” April 3

Posted in Annoucement, Events, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on April 1, 2016 by jacobschurch

From a Thorn To A Throne
This Sunday we will conclude our sermon series “The Crown of His Majesty”. We will take the crown of thorns off the cross, We’ll remove the stone left at the foot of the cross, typical of the one thrown at the woman caught in adultery. The sign, at the top of the cross, will no longer read,” King of the Jews”, but “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”. The little sign we placed at the bottom of the cross, “I did this for you”, will now take on a new meaning. He will never again hang on an old rugged cross nor wear a crown of thorns, but sit on a throne at God the Father’s right hand. Our sermon this Sunday, “From a Thorn to a Throne,” will take us in our journey to Heaven where we’ll see what the Apostle John saw. A Risen Savior being crowned by those that love Him. We continue to gather stones, not to throw, but precious jewels for a Crown of His Majesty. Service starts at 9:30 Sunday morning April 3rd. Come prepared to worship. Jacob’s church is located at 495 Harbaugh Valley Road, just off Rt 16 between Waynesboro and Emmetsburg, Maryland. Look for sign on Rt. 16.

Join us for the three sermon conclusion of “The Crown of His Majesty” a sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Crown of Thorns bulletin For the past weeks we’ve followed Jesus along the Sea of Galilee. Wow, what a trip. He disarmed the stone throwers, healed the blind, made the lame to walk, raised the dead, cleansed the lepers and unfolded a plan for the salvation of man. Does such deserve to wear a crown of thorns and be nailed to a cross?

Our world seems out of control at times.

The Apostle John in Revelation 5 said he wept when no one was found worthy to open the book which contained the power to end and vindicate the evil that man had allowed to spiral out of control. He was comforted to be told that The Lion of Judah was ready to take the world back. Looking for this big Lion he saw only a lamb.

       This week we see the Lamb led down the road of a king to be his execution. Then we realize that the very Passover lamb is in fact the Lion. He will die as a lamb but be raised into a Lion after three days. In the last three sermons we will replace the crown of thorns with a new crown that we will give Him.                                                                                                  

           Like the wise Kings of Christmas, we will bring our gifts fit for a King. “The King is Coming” is an appropriate title for this week’s sermon. Sunday 20th I will introduce the King of the Jews, The Lamb of God. Sunday 27th after he was unjustly put to death we will see the Father raise him from the dead. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah will prevail. Then on April 3rd we will Crown him with many crowns. Don’t miss a single service. Special music in each service. Services begin at 9:30 at Jacobs Church 495 Harbaugh Valley Road just off Route 16 between Waynesboro Pa. and Emmetsburg Md .

“Can anything good come out of Nazareth ?” part one of sermon series “The Crown of His Majesty” , by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Court Clerk :   “Call your First Witness.”

John 1:46 (KJV) 
And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

Luke 4:16-21   And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. [17] And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, [18] The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, [19] To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. [20] And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. [21] And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Matthew 11:4-5

Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: [5] The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

Luke 7:22

Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

Matthew 20:30-34

And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. [31] And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. [32] And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you? [33] They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. [34] So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mark 10:46-52

And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. [47] And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. [48] And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. [49] And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. [50] And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. [51] And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. [52] And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Luke 4:16-21   And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. [17] And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, [18] The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, [19] To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. [20] And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. [21] And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Matthew 11:4-5

Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: [5] The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

Luke 7:22

Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

Matthew 20:30-34

And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. [31] And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David. [32] And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you? [33] They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened. [34] So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Mark 10:46-52

And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. [47] And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. [48] And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. [49] And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. [50] And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. [51] And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. [52] And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Sermon February 14, 2016 “PS I Love You” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Disciples out back

                                                Disciples That Love

Sermon Notes :       “PS I love you.“, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

 John 21:15-25 (KJV)15  So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. 16  He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 17  He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 18  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. 19   This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. 20  Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 21  Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? 22  Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. 23  Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? 24  This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 25  And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

  2. Zapped Theory
  3. Birds singing, Warm and Fuzzy
  4. Soul Mate Theory
  5. One with Nature theory.
  6. What the Bible says about love.

 

God’s made us  Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical.

1 Thes. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Three Greek Words  All are love but none should stand alone.

Agape ( Unconditional Love)

Phillio (Emotional Love )

Eros ( Physical Expression of Love )

Love is a part of our free will.

Three things that impact our love.

  1. Faith in God

1 Corinthians 2:14 The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

1 John 4:7-11 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. [8] He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. [9] In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. [10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. [11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

  1. Circumstances of Life

Romans 8:28-29 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. [29] For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

  1. Our relationships.         We tend to mimic how we have been loved or mistreated.)

Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

1 Peter 3:13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

1 Cor. 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Thes. 3:9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

Sermon December 27,2015 9:30 AM “Another Year Another Purpose”, Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Posted in Bluegrass Sunday, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on December 27, 2015 by jacobschurch

2016 Battle Cry (2)

2016

What will the new year hold for us?

How can we make 2016 different? By believing and following Jesus Christ

In 2016 will we be changers of our world or are we conformers to a system spiraling out of control? We will be changers.

Romans 12:1-3 (KJV) 1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3  For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Can we make a difference? Yes

A slogan I’d like to use for 2016 is “To Believe and Follow”

What a privilege to have been given faith to believe in Jesus Christ who is all powerful, all knowing, and all caring and who is at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven making intercession for us. In 2016 we will believe and follow, His Word, and His leading through the Holy Spirit.

Today’s Message “Another Year Another Purpose”, Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

  • Mission

 

2 Cor. 5:18-19 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; [19] To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

  • Commission

 

John 20:21-23 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. [22] And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: [23] Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

  • Responsible communication with God

 

Hebrews 2:17Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

  • Faith Without Works is Dead  (Works being defined is corresponding action.)

 

Acts 2:42-47 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. [43] And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. [44] And all that believed were together, and had all things common; [45] And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. [46] And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, [47] Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

  • Action Plan and commitment.

 

Matthew 28:16-20 (NIV)   Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Veterans Week Sermon “Having Done All to Stand” Nov. 13, 2016 Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Posted in Annoucement, Events, Sermons on November 12, 2015 by jacobschurch

I remember standing in the middle of Arlington Cemetery looking at all the crosses. Each grave held someone’s son, daughter, brother, sister, father, or mother. I remember asking myself if all these wars were in vain? All these must have all believed there was a cause worth dying for. I felt so small and undeserving to be in the presence of thousands that made the sacrifice Christ mentioned when he said “greater hath no man love than this that he lay down his life for his friends. Later that same day I visited the Vietnam Wall Memorial and stood and watched friends and family searching for a name on the wall. Being of that era I knew some of my friends that were listed on the memorial. I felt honored to have known them and undeserving of their sacrifice.
To you that served and survived , you also deserve our deepest respect and thanks. Thank you for serving, protecting, and defending the freedom we enjoy.
Recently on the Sunday after 911 we unfolded the flag on the church lawn and had members of four of our armed forces pray a prayer. The first line of the Marine Prayer given by Bill Loughridge inspired my sermon this Sunday.
First Line of the Marine’s Prayer “Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will.”.

The title of the sermon is “Having Done All to Stand”. Today on Veterans day as I read the creeds and codes, that our American soldiers hold dear, I realize that Christians have values not only worth dying for but living for. We are Onward Christian Soldiers. I hope you’ll join us Sunday Nov. 13, 2016 at 9:30 to both hear the sermon and to honor the Veterans in the service. Service begins at 9:30 this Sunday at Jacob’s Church 495 Harbaugh Valley Road Fairfield Pennsylvania. (just off route 16 between Waynesboro and Emmetsburg). Pastor Richard

“Profile of a Leader”, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge November 1, 2015

Posted in Communion Sunday, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on October 30, 2015 by jacobschurch

richsmile6“Profile of a Leader”, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge November1, 2015

I’ve always said that a man must first conquer his own soul before he can conquer the world. When you look in the mirror do you see faith or falsehood, a winner or a whiner?

We all would like to be better people. We all lead or follow. With so many conflicting instructions in the world Christians should all be leaders at your post. Today let’s look at the mirror of God’s Word in a sermon called the Profile of a Leader.  

We all can be better. Today we examine our leadership.

  1. A Leader is under authority

Matthew 8 8-10    But the centurion said, “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9“For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” 10Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.…

Philip. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

  1. A Leader knows his enemy and knows his God.  

1Samuel 17:4-7  A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. He was over nine feet tall.                                          

3.  A Leader has heart

1Samuel 17:32 David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.”

1Samuel 17:50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

  1. A Leader must have resolve.

James 1:8  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

1 Cor. 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

  1.  A Leader is  selfless. Philip. 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
  2. A Leader leads by example.     Demand -V- Command

1 Tim. 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

  1. A Leader is progressive Philip. 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
  2. A Leader values Team .

1 Cor. 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

  1. Leader see beyond the Battle 2 Tim. 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
  2. A Leader values reward.

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Sermon: Four Prayers that Jesus Prayed on Our Behalf ( We now see the answers) October 18,2015 by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Posted in Sermons on October 15, 2015 by jacobschurch

Sermon: Jesus’s prayers.

Let’s read in St.John Chapter 17 together. Verses 1-5

Jesus  gives  the state of his mission and reveals our mission.

Four Prayers that Jesus Prayed on Our Behalf ( We now see the answers)

1. Keeping Faith

John 10:28,29 “…and I will give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand. My Father Who has given them to me is greater than all and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.”

2. Protecting Faith  

John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

Matt 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

3. Faith to Change

John 17:17-19 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. [18] As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. [19] And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

4. Unity Faith 

John 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Conclusion

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Thanks to every one that made our “Sunday after 911 Sermon So Special”

flag0913152

Pastor Richard’s opening words.

“Today this service so fitly named “Sunday after Nine Eleven” is not to reopen wounds and hurts thus magnifying the terrors and intentions of evil people. The image we examine today is not a falling tower but the rising people. These people were united in faith and love and resolved to rise above the works of evil.
We want to revisit their prayers, be immersed in their love and maintain their resolve to be free.
Christ said, “Greater hath no man love than this that he would lay down his life for his friends.”
The heroes did not run from the smoke and ash but into to save people’s lives. Such courage must never be overlooked but passed forward to the next generation.
The Sunday after 911 was said to be the greatest prayer days in America and around the world since the invasion at Pearl Harbor.
We need to remember our oaths to God and to thank Him for the miracle of today and again pass them forward.
How do we obtain such courage, love and resolve?”

“Sunday after Nine Eleven” Special Service September 13, 2015 All welcome.

The purpose of this service so fitly named “Sunday after Nine Eleven” is not to reopen wounds and hurts thus magnifying the terrors and intentions of evil people. The image we examine today is not a falling tower but the rising people. These people were united in faith and love and resolved to rise above the works of evil.
We want to revisit their prayers, be immersed in their love and maintain their resolve to be free.
Christ said, “Greater hath no man love than this that he would lay down his life for his friends.”
The heroes did not run from the smoke and ash but into to save people’s lives. Such courage must never be overlooked but passed forward to the next generation.
The Sunday after 911 was said to be the greatest prayer days in America and around the world since the invasion at Pearl Harbor.
We need to remember our oaths to God and to thank Him for the miracle of today and again pass them forward.
How do we obtain such courage, love and resolve?
Come and join us Sunday as we open the flag. Pray for America and renew our resolves to continue to rise up out of the ashes. Service begins at 9:30 Flag service, and lunch will continue immediately following the service.

Announcement From Last Weeks Bulletin

SPECIAL 9-11 SERVICE WEEK END SERVICE  Join us for a special “Sunday After 9-11” service.” Invite all the first responders you may know, your family, friends and neighbors. We will recognize those first responders in the service. We will revisit the prayers America prayed on the greatest call to prayer day since Pearl Harbor.
We’ll begin the remembrance in our morning worship service September 13th at 9:30 a.m. and continue afterwards down in the pavilion behind the church at 11:00 a.m.
Pastor Richard remembers, “Two days after September 11, when I was coaching girls’ soccer at Smithsburg High, we unfolded a 20’ x 30’ American flag on the soccer field before our game. Both Smithsburg High School girls’ soccer team and Hedgesville, WV girls’ soccer team unfolded the giant flag as a symbol of hope in the height of our nation’s extreme grief. Players from both teams volunteered to pray for the victims, their families and our nation.”
After the service, we will meet at the pavilion, gather around that same flag, pray for our nation and give thanks for our freedom and liberties. We will then share in a pot luck lunch together. The meat, drinks and paper products will be provided. Please bring a covered side dish and a dessert to share.

preach4You are the Man, Father’s Day Sermon 2015, by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

                                               Sermon Notes:

Three things we DADs can give our children.

  Destiny Affirmation Determination

Galatians 4:6   And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

  1. The Rewards of Fatherhood.

“Some of the greatest achievements in parenting are the uncelebrated victories won in the prayer closet.”

  1. The Prayers of a Father

“It’s more important what you say to God about your children than what you say to your children about God.”

  1. The Examples of a Father

“Trophies aren’t usually given for battles won in secret and the battle of manhood is most often fought in the obscurity of the heart.” Pastor Richard Daughtridge  ”

“Men today are measured by success, by wealth, by strength, by competition, by good looks, by dress, by esteem and social importance but the greatest scale a man can use is to measure himself is his relationship with his Godhis wife, and his children.” Pastor Richard Daughtridge

JOB 1:4 His sons used to take turns holding feasts in their homes, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. [5] When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would send and have them purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom.

  1. The  Spirit of a Father

How would you describe a spiritual man and why?

I’ve always believed that the stature of a man was more reflected in his private life than his public life. Jesus had a lot to say about this. The most impressive religious men of that day were the Scribes and Pharisees, or were they?   Let’s listen to what Christ said.

MT 6:6-7 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. [7] And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. [8] Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

“When God calls the plays”, A Sermon on Super Sunday 2015 Fe.1, 2015

Richard Daughtridge Honor Point“When God calls the plays”, A Sermon on Super Sunday 2015   By Richard Daughtridge

Today we look at God’s dream team in three different events 300 -500 years apart.  God’s team building is however very different than we are used to in the sports world. Lets look at three events in which God supplies the team and calls the plays and players.

    1271 BC

Exodus 32:31-33 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. [32] Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. [33] And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Moses became one of the first intercessors. Notice his heart for the people.

Exodus 33:12-16 (KJV) 12  And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. 13  Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. 14  And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. 15  And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. 16  For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

750 BC

Habakkuk 2:2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

Habakkuk became a communicator out of his frustration of seeing the people kicked around.

Nehemiah 1:1-4 (KJV 2  That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3  And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. 4  And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

Nehemiah became a builder, encourager, fundraiser, prayer warrior, and worshiper. He led by example. God built a team.  

           1.Team  draft. God has never used a complaining player.  

Ephes. 4:1-4 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, [2] With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; [3] Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. [4] There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

  1. Prayer begins play call.  There are people that ask and never believe and there are people that believe and never ask.

Neh. 2:12 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.

  1. Passion determines play book.  A Broken heart is dangerous when converted to strength.

NE 1:4 When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.

4. Dream determines plan. Where there is no vision people perish but a vision is worthless without a corresponding action.   

Neh 2:4 The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven, [5] and I answered the king, “If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my fathers are buried so that I can rebuild it.”

5. Team Spirit determines outcome. We reach our greatest potential when we find the value of each other.

Philip. 2:1-7 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, [2] Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. [3] Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. [4] Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. [5] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Luke 2:1-4 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. [2] (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) [3] And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. [4] And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Luke 1:38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

2 Cor. 5:18-19 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; [19] To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

“Knock Out Round, Fighting a Good Fight. ”,  a sermon outline,  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 09/28/14 This week is Bluegrass Sunday

Posted in Uncategorized on September 26, 2014 by jacobschurch

preachpassion“Knock Out Round, Fighting a Good fight. ”,  a sermon outline,  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

2 Tim. 4:5-8 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. [6] For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. [7] I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: [8] Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
1. Identify with the Crucifixion  (Unrighteousness is consumed by righteousness.)
Galatians 2:20   I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

2. Identify with the Resurrection (Death is consumed by life.)  (I am Risen).
Romans 6:4    Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
3. Identify with the Kingdom  (Kingdom of Satan is conquered by the Kingdom of God.)
John 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
Luke 22:29-30  And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; [30] That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
4. Identify with the Word of God     (Powers of disbelief are disarmed by the Word of God)
Hebrews 4:12   For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
5. Identify with the Church (Church membership is collective ownership of the mission given by God.)
1 Cor. 14:26  How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
6. Identify with the  Body of Christ (War on a global scale must be fought globally.)
Romans 7:4  Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
7. Identify your Enemy – Friendly fire is an oxymoron and eventually turns into corporate annihilation.

2 Cor. 4:6   For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness.

This week is Bluegrass Sunday

Another,  guitar plukin, banjo picken, bass fiddle thumpin, choir singin and hand clappin, worship service is  planned at Jacob’s Church September 28th in the morning worship service.  We’ve decided to have a second service dedicated to the old gospel hymnal tradition, bluegrass style.

Road Signs along My Christian Journey by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

road signStudy this picture and decide as a driver what you should do.

Can you remember your first driving test?

Our Christian life is a journey and it is very important that we understand  directions as we navigate through life.  We only get one shot at this journey.

These signs  would help chart our course.

Salvation , Baptism, Discipleship, Service, Death, Eternity


 

 

 

1. Salvation / Justification

 

To understand salvation you must understand justification.

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

a. Hear

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

b. Believe

Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

c. Receive

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

2. Baptism / Identification

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

3.   Discipleship / Changing into the likeness of Christ (Process)

Matthew 28:18-20  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. them to observe all

4.   Service

2 Cor. 5:18-19  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; [19] To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

2 Cor. 5:20  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

5.  Death

Philip. 1:21-24 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. [22] But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. [23] For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: [24] Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

6.  Eternity

 

Rev. 22:12  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

John 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

This week is Bluegrass Sunday

Another,  guitar plukin, banjo picken, bass fiddle thumpin, choir singin and hand clappin, worship service is  planned at Jacob’s Church September 28th in the morning worship service.  We’ve decided to have a second service dedicated to the old gospel hymnal tradition, bluegrass style.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Col. 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
Psalm 31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
Psalm 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Proverbs 9:17 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.
John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Matthew 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Three Dance Partners
1. Father Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
2. Son Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
3. Holy Spirit Romans 8:26-27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. [27] And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
May your dance last forever.
Closing Song : “What a friend we have in Jesus.”

“Three Gifts of DAD” a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge Father’s Day June 15, 2014         (Come Sunday for the rest of the sermon.)

 

 

Direction
Seems everywhere you look there is roadwork. I was on 64 this week and I waited and waited. After being stopped a second time I waited again. The flagman or should I say flag lady was talking on her cell phone. After my patience had had been reduced to almost zero an escort truck with the sign follow me and flashing lights turns around and stops to say something  to her. Maybe he said lunch break because she looked happy at what he said. He takes off assuming the cars are behind him but she still hasn’t turned her stop sign around. Do I go? She waves come on but never turns her sign.  I was totally confused. Two signal which one do I obey? All she had to do was turn the sign around but now she’s looking at me like,What are you waiting for? Should I tell her to turn her sign around or just go on her hand wave. The person behind me stopped and I chuckled. I saw the sign turn in my rear view mirror.
Such are signals we sometimes send to our children and family as fathers.
I’d like to share several scriptures that will improve our direction communications.
Affirmation
As a dad you have become the co-owner of your children’s dreams, mistakes, and ambitions. Ask yourself: Do I lead by criticizing, complaining, negativity, dream busting, and fear? or do I lead by encouragement, example, affirmation and faith.
The Bible has a lot to say about this subject. Let’s look at these scriptures.
Determination
“When the going gets tough the tough ________ ______________.” You fill in the blanks. I’m sure your answer was probably the tough get going. Wrong answer. We will share the answers Sunday with scriptures from the Bible.

Today’s Sermon: “Jesus empowers Women with Resurrection”, a two part Mother’s Day Sermon beginning May 4 and concluding on Mother’s Day, Sun. May 11th a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“Jesus Empowers Women With The Resurrection”

Today I’d like to continue our resurrection sermons by introducing seven Biblical ladies that honored our Lord before the cross, at the cross, and after the resurrection. There were many but today we will highlight only a few.  Next week, May 11th, we will honor our mothers by sharing the influence  of other Biblical women. Our Conclusion will be the  sermon next week. “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle”

John 20:15-16 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. [16] Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

Mary Magdalene Lady of Controversy

John 18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

Luke 8:1-3 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, [2] And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, 1. Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, [3] And 2. Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

John 4:9-10   3. The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.  Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

Matthew 27:55-61 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him: [56] Among which was Mary Magdalene, and 4. Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the             5. mother of Zebedee’s children.

John 19:25-27 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus 6. Mary his mother, and his mother’s sister, 7. Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. [26] When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! [27] Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

“Who is this? A King?  A Fraud? -Truth? or a Lie? ” Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge
Zech. 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Matthew 21:1-11 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, [2] Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. [3] And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. [4] All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, [5] Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. [6] And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, [7] And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. [8] And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. [9] And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. [10] And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? [11] And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Matthew 21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?

Matthew 21:31b Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“Olympic Gold,  Running a Race called Patience”  Sermon 02/09/14  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge of Hagerstown Maryland at Jacob’s Church near Fairfield, Pennsylvania.

Rev. 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Life is described in the Bible as a race. We know that in this race we call life there are no shorts cuts to the finish line. We as a church and as individuals desire to finish well.

We have the greatest coach. He has already played on this playing field and has won the Gold. Now he cheers us along liked a father cheering and supporting his children.

The success of this race however is not measured in points. Life’s success is not decided in dollars, the number of friends we have, how big our church has becomes, or even how religious we act, but rather what we become as individuals.

It’s important that we work together as a team but today I want us to ask the question, how am I doing in the race?

We all are all one small part of the whole Body of Christ and our finish individually and personally is important. We want to honor our Heavenly Father and give to him our best game.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

What things work together?

So Run!!!!! They are off !!!

1 Cor. 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

Drop the weight!!!

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Who are these witnesses watching us from heaven?

Noah built a boat.

Abraham started a family.

Sarah had a baby.

Moses led an enslaved nation to freedom.

What does all this have to do with me?

The race that they had to finish had many similarities with the challenges we face in life. I’d like to share a few ways they are similar to ours.

Common Coach
Common Oppositions
Common Failures
Common Dreams
Common Fears

Their finishes however were not common. They were extraordinary.

How do we finish well?

1. Dress for the game.

Rev. 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

2. Prepare for the game.

1 Cor. 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

3. Listen for the plan from Coach.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

4. Become a team player.

1 Cor. 12:18-20 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. [19] And if they were all one member, where were the body? [20] But now are they many members, yet but one body.

Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

2 Tim. 4:6-8 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. [7] I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: [8] Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

So Run!!!!!

 “Packing Up To Go Home ”a resurrection sermon by Pastor Daughtridge

Bodily Resurrection

cross section2“If my spiritual body is reborn  when will I reclaim my new earthly body?”

Col. 1:17-20  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. [18] And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. [19] For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; [20] And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

1 Cor. 15:52-53   In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Titus 2:13 “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

 There ain’t no grave can hold my body down
There ain’t no grave can hold my body down
When I hear that trumpet sound I’m gonna rise right out of the ground

Ain’t no grave can hold my body down

 Job 19:25 “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:”

  John 5:25 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.” For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself. And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice. And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”

   1 Thes. 4:16-18    For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. [18] Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Daniel 12:1-4  And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. [2] And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

“Beyond Forgiveness” a sermon  on the Holy Spirit  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“The cross without  resurrection is like a light bulb with no electricity. Christianity without spirituality is just another dead religion. The life that God breathed into man was lost in the separation from God that justice demanded after sin defiled our world. A lifeless humanity was spiraling to spend eternity without God and then the rescue, John 3:16.” Pastor Richard Daughtridge

1. Back to the Beginning

Genesis 2:7  And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

2. Back to the Present

John 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 14:17  Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Romans 8:14-16  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. [15] For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. [16] The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

1 Cor. 3:16-17  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? [17] If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Galatians 4:6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Acts 2:33  Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

Acts 2:38-39 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. [39] For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Acts 5:32  And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

3. Back to the Future

Rev. 14:13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

“Facts of Life” a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

We only get one shot at life. Here are three simple facts of life to consider. Take aim and make this shot count.     

Psalm 138:5

Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: for great is the glory of the Lord.

Hosea 14:9

Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

Three Facts of Life to Consider

Eternal  Destiny

2 Cor. 5:8

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

John 14:2-3

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Hebrews 11:16

But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Rev. 7:9

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

Earthly Calling from  Heaven

 John 3:16

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 1:12

    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Ephes. 2:5

    Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

Ephes. 2:8

    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Romans 5:15

    But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

John 15:4

    Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Earthly Fellowship

Philip. 1:3-6

    I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, [4] Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, [5] For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; [6] Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Hebrews 10:25

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

“Free at Last”  a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtidge

The Perfect Church Series

1.      Redeemed Church

Romans 3:23-25 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; [24] Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: [25] Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

1 Cor. 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

 2. Uncondemned Church

Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. [2] For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Rev. 12:9-11  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. [10] And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. [11] And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Rev. 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

Luke 10:18-20  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. [19] Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. [20] Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

3.   Free from Hate

Romans 8:37-39  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. [38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

4.  Free from Lies

    John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Romans 9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,

 5.  Free From Loneliness

    Romans 12:15-19  Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. [16] Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. [17] Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. [18] If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. [19] Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Ephes. 4:14-15   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; [15] But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

    Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

“My Communication with God and Others in 2013” a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge of Jacob’s Church near Frederick and Hagerstown Maryland

The Old rugged Cross

The Old Rugged Cross, a communication from God, by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“Communication is the foundation of oneness.”

I began this message last week and I shared four points of a to-be list for 2013. To Love, To study, To witness, and To become one.   Communication is critical as we move forward. We will in 2013 communicate many different ways. Our communications will speak very loudly to God, to each other, to our families, and to our neighbors. Here are some of the ways we will communicate.    

1.      Communicate by service.

Acts 6:1-4   And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. [2] Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. [3] Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. [4] But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

Hebrews 12:28   Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

Galatians 5:13  For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

1 Cor. 12:12-13  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. [13] For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

2.      Communicating by discourse.

Ephes. 4:2   With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

Col. 3:12  Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

2 Tim. 2:25  In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

Titus 3:2  To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

3.      Communicate vision. 

My vision is to impact this community with:

   Our Sunday Service

How can we better our serve?

                      Prayer time.

                      Sound and multimedia.

                      Team of teachers, greeters, ushers and parking people.

                      Updating our facilities.

                             Updating the pavilion for summer and winter use.                

Our outreach events.

            Using events to reach the community.

            Using our talents to bless our church and community.

 

4.      Communicate with our giving.

Acts 20:35  I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Malachi 3:8   Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

5.      Communicate with our prayers.  

Psalm 72:20  The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

Acts 2:42  And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Rev. 5:8  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

Rev. 8:3-4   And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. [4] And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

2 Tim. 1:3   I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;

Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“To-Be List for 2013”  Sermon 12/30/12  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

A.    In 2013    That we would be lovers.

1 Cor 13: 1-10  Message Bible

1 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. 3-7If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

8-10Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

B.     In 2013  That we would be students of God’s word.

 Psalm 119:9   Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Psalm 119:11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Psalm 119:16    I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

John 21:25    And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

 C.    In  2013    That we would be Witnesses.

  Acts 1:22  Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection. (None of the usual Greek words for ordained are used here.  It is ginomai (GSN-1096) which has the sense of being or becoming.  Here it means to become a witness.

D.    In 2013    That we would be one.

Exodus 18:18     Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

1 Cor. 12:12    For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

(To be continued next week.)

“Communication  is the foundation of oneness.”

 1. Communicating with our service.

2. Communicating our concerns.

3. Communicating our vision.           

4. Communicating with our words.

5. Communicating with our giving.

6. Communicating with our prayers.

Keeping Watch over our Flocks by Night, a sermon , by Pastor Richard Daughtridge Bluegrass Sunday 12/16/12

Remember as a child being in the Christmas program?  Dressed in bathrobes using a homemade shepherd rods and towels draped over head we became shepherds and wise men. I wonder if we understood the drama we were involved in. One phrase in the Christmas story permeated my heart, “keeping watch over their flock by night.”  I don’t believe God waste words. The Holy Spirit that penned these words through Luke knew the attachment of a shepherd to his flock. It reflected God’s heart toward us as he planned the first Christmas.

1. God as Shepherd

Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

1 Kings 22:17 And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the Lord said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace.

Isaiah 40:11  He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

2. Man as a Shepherd

Isaiah 63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?

Jeremiah 50:44  Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong: but I will make them suddenly run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?

Ezekiel 34:12  As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

3. Christ announced himself to be Chief Shepherd

 John 10:11-12  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. [12] But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

1 Peter 2:25   

4. We are his Shepherds

“Breaking News: Expecting Virgin still claims her innocence.” a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Do people surprise you with their opinions?

What would the CNN gallop opinion poll look like in year 4  AD?

Wouldn’t “Entertainment Tonight” get ratings out of this story?

 Plus added features ,  Three related stories from : The Gossip Column of Jerusalem Year 4 AD,

  “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37

Speculated comments from neighbors, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, in-laws.  Wonder what  they thought?    

Luke 1:31-46    And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. [32] He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: [33] And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. [34] Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? [35] And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. [36] And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. [37] For with God nothing shall be impossible. [38] And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

[39] And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; [40] And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. [41] And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: [42] And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. [43] And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? [44] For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. [45] And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

[46] And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

A.    Maybe “ Jerusalem  25 Alive would like to know what you think the babies should be named.”

Luke 1:61-62    And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. [62] And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.

 Luke 1:1  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

B.     “Breaking News; Baby’s new name caused mute father to speak for the first time in months”

Luke 1:64-66  And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God. [65] And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea. [66] And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.

C.    “Breaking News : Shepherds claim to see angels, bright lights and hear choirs singing. What do you think? Click on our NBC blog entitled, “Too much egg nogg or counting too many Sheep” and express your opinion.

  Luke 2:13-14   And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, [14] Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

1.   Thou shalt … bring forth a son:  “Behold the Man,” as portrayed in Luke

2.   Thou shalt call His name Jesus:  “Behold My servant,” as portrayed in Mark

3.   He shall be great … the Son of the Highest:  “Behold your God,” as portrayed in John

4.   He shall reign:  “Behold thy King,” as portrayed in Matthew

Let the gossip columns light up and write it down . It’s all true. Praise and glory to God. “Christ is Born”.
