Bragging  Rights”, Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 02/26/12

2 Cor. 9:2     For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.

2 Cor. 10:16   To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s line of things made ready to our hand.

I believe that, “Growth does not always make a healthy church but healthy church can always grow.”

 Ever heard theses sayings, “ Chip off the old block”, or “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” or how about this “Like father like son” ,and we can’t leave this out, “Stop acting like your mother’s side of the family”.

 I want to cover five things very quickly that I feel will give us bragging rights.  

Biblical

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

Respectful

 2 Peter 1:6-7 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; [7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

Authentic

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.

Gracious

2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Generous                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Philip. 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Instinctive

John 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

New 

Romans 7:6   But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

Godly

2 Peter 1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Psalm 44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
