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. Welcome back to the good old days.

There will be a picnic immediately following church this Sunday in the pavilion. Bring a covered dish and favorite dessert and we’ll all share. We’ll provide  some fried chicken and drinks.  Join in the fellowship and invite someone. This Sunday 09/28/14 right after church. Join us for our first covered dish picnic in the new pavilion.
