Today’s topic: Maintenance

“The Disciplines of a Disciple” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Today we all step in front of the mirror to see how we look. Today we step on the scale to see how much we weigh. Today we take the IQ test to see how much we’ve learned. Today we run the race to see how fast we are.

The mirror must be cracked, the scale must be broken, the test must be scored wrong, and the stop watch must be off. Sound familiar? I like the sign that I saw in a garage that read, “Maintenance Required – Don’t Blame The Manufacturer”.

Romans 12:1-16 reflects all the above. Let’s read it together.

How do you rate yourself?  Scale is 1-10

Now before we get started tell the person beside you, “I’m here for a tune up.

Disciple: A disciple is a follower and student of a mentor, teacher, or otherwise figure.

I’m not so bad compared to ___________________.

Not so bad based on:

1. Tradition

Matthew 23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

2. Grace

Romans 12:3  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.

Ephes. 4:7   But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ

3. The Bible

2 Cor. 10:13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.

4.   Christ

Ephes. 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

5. Measure of Others

Ephes. 4:16   From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

James 5:16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Ok, we are all on the Biggest Loser. Time to weigh in.

Let’s get on the scale of:

  1. Prayer
  2. Bible Study
  3. Devotion
  4. Church Attendance
  5. Giving
  6. Relationships
  7. Service

Romans 12:1-2  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.

“Majesty Deserves True Worship” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

“Majesty deserves Worship” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Last week we examined our battle cry for 2010. A battle cry we determined is a reminder of our passion and reason for living. We‘ve been invited to give His Majesty, God of the Universe, the awe, respect and love that he deserves.   Thus today we will look at Worship. Our dream for 2010 is to have:

1. Undivided Worship

Luke 4:7-8 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. [8] And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

2.  True Worship

Matthew 15:8-9  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. [9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

3.   Joyful Worship

Isaiah 38:20  The Lord was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the Lord.

Ephes. 5:19  Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

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.

4.  Service Worship

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

5.  Praise Worship

Jeremiah 33:11 The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the Lord.

Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

6.  Sacrificial Worship

2 Samuel 24:24  And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

Jacob’s Battle Cry for 2010 by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Majesty ,  Maintenance , Mission , and Mix are the words that make up our battle cry for 2010. Every word represents a challenge that we are passionate about.

1. Majesty – Giving our Heavenly Father the Love, Awe, and Worship he deserves.

  • Not a show but a communication from our heart.

Psalm 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

2. Maintenance – The Discipleship we will require to become more like him.

  • Apologetics that are Truth and Bible based
  • Teaching our children by Instruction and Example

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

2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

3. Mission – Owning the great commission.

  • Plan that has a message with legs.
  • Actions speak louder than words but the words are still foundational.

Mark 16:15   And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

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:

4. Mix – Fellowship getting to know each other.

  • Taking time to become a family.
  • Accepting One Another.
  • Respecting One Another.
  • Loving One Another.
  • Communication With One Another.

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