“Portrait One  Alpha  Father  to  Abba  Father” Sermon One of a sermon series , Portraits of God,  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

It’s been said, “A thousand words can paint a picture.” Well if that’s the case there must be thousands of portraits of God throughout the Bible. Over  the next weeks we want to display many of  these portraits here at Jacob’s Church.

Rev. 1:8  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty

John 1:18    No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

“A lump of clay getting ready to give birth. A Potter circles the lump ready to remold a master piece. A new life is about to be concieved as a result of love, ” Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Genesis 1:1-2 Amplified Bible  “ In the beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.

John 1:1-5  KJV  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Rev. 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Rev. 2:28   And I will give him the morning star.

Rev. 22:16   I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

“Expectations, A Two Way Street” Part five, (conclusion) “Dress Codes”, a sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge, 10/16/11,

I know we could never repay God for salvation. He died for us based on Agape’  unconditional love. Because of that love doesn’t he deserve our love in return? What does that look like? One of my favorite devotionals is “My Utmost for His Highest”. I love it because it highlights both responsibilities o f this relationship, God’s and Mine.   Today in our conclusion of  “Dress Codes” we will examine two things, “What can we expect of God in this relationship?” and a question we all should be asking ourselves, “What can God expect of me?”. This is our gift. Love demands a response, or it just becomes a cheap one sided affair. I’m not sure that’s love or faith.

Romans 1 2: 1-2 KJV

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.

Ephesians 6: 13-20 NIV  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,

Romans 12:9-10 KJV  Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

“Happy Feet ”  Part four, “Dress Codes”, a sermon series, by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

  The sign read, “No Shoes NO Service”  “Why?”, I thought. I found myself looking around in the beach ice cream place to see if everyone had shoes on. It looked to be about half the people there had shoes. The others must have either not seen the sign or just ignored it. Feet aren’t pretty for everyone. Jesus washed his disciples feet. What an act of humility.

Songs of Salomon  7:1   How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince’s daughter! the joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman.

Isaiah 52:7  How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

 Ephes. 6:15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

 John 13:8-9  Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. [9] Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

 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.

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

A Time to Praise

2 Samuel 6:14   And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

Psalm 150:4   Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

Eccles. 3:4   A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A Time to Work


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.

2 Samuel 22:30  For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

Philip. 2:16  Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

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,

1.Lay aside every weight Paul’s purpose here is to get the believer to lay aside whatever weight is hindering Christian progress.

2.Lay aside the sin which doth so easily beset us  The sin that easily
besets is the one each person has been addicted to, whatever is his weakness.

3.Run with patience the race set before us

4.Look unto Jesus He is the head of all the long train of faith heroes. He is the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

5.Consider Him  Observe and analyze every part of His life and
conduct, His courage in sufferings

Take Command of Your Feet.

1 Peter 4:4  Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

2 Thes. 3:11  For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

1 Tim. 5:13  And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

Use Your Feet  Isa. 57:1

1.   To bring good tidings.

2.   To publish peace.

3.   To publish salvation.

4.   To announce that God reigns in Zion.
