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



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.
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.
“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.

“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.
Who is this?
Historical Facts
Non Christian
Old Testament
New Testament
The change in us.
Who is this? This may be the most important question you ever answer.

“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”.

“Becoming a Family” sermon one of a sermon series, “Family Ties” by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 07/29/12 This Week Is Bluegrass Sunday

“Becoming a Family” sermon one of a sermon series, “Family Ties”  by Pastor Richard Daughtridge  07/29/12

Adopted or still an orphans? Faith demands response?.  Today I’d like to address these two important family questions. Jesus seem to place more emphasis on the family of the church than on the organization.I think there was a reason for this.

 “When a church becomes a family it functions in it’s completed form and accomplishes the purposes behind it’s creation. Functioning outside this form it becomes just another religious organization.”

Ever hear these statements?

“You don’t have to go to church to be a Christian.”

“I believe in God and that’s what counts.”

“I don’t believe in organized religion.”

“We are all God’s children.”

“I’m better than most Christians I know.”

 Honestly these are some of the most dangerous statements I’ve ever heard.

A.    Born into the Family, Adoption, or Both.

 1.      Grace

1 Peter 1:20   Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

John 3: 15-17  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  [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. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

2.      Choice

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:

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

2 Peter 3:17  Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

Ephes. 1:5   Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

B.     Weekly Local Family Reunion  (Jacob’s Church)

 Hebrews 12:23  To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

Acts 20:7  And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

1 Cor. 16:2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

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.

C.    Head of the family. (Christ)

 Ephes. 1:21-23   Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: [22] And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, [23] Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

D.    Disciple

 Romans 8:29  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 John 3:2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

“The Run Away Bride”, Message for America, sermon outline by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 07/01/12 of Jacob’s Church near Gettysburg Pennsylvania and Fort Richie and Hagerstown, Marylandryland

“The Run Away Bride” A Message to America, a sermon outline by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 07/01/12

“What so proudly we hailed at the twilight  last gleaming” , The Star Spangle Banner

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord”, Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Strange wedding songs? What does this have to do with a run-away bride?

Ever think?, What if at twilight last gleaming things had been different for America?  I pray Americans never looses sight of the rest of the story behind those words. Freedom was a gift from God, sent through men that prayed to God, and were inspired by God. I believe God truly has blessed America , which has been the greatest Christian influence in our world.

God has a wedding planned at the end of time for those that trust in Christ. It is not for Americans alone but for all that accept Christ’s gift of eternal life. God will call us home in his sovereign time through death  or we will meet him in the sky with all saints in the great resurrection. Regardless of which exit we take  there is a wedding celebration  being planned in Heaven. Now is not the time to be a Run-Away Bride.

1. Bride gets ready to meet the family.

Ephes. 5:27    That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

1 Thes. 3:13    To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

2. Groom is preparing a home. We will soon be  leaving.

John 14:1-3    Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. [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. [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.

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.

3. The Wedding Begins

Rev. 19:1-9  And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: [2] For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. [3] And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever. [4] And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. [5] And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. [6] And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. [7] Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. [8] And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. [9] And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

 Rev. 21:2-4   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. [4] 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.

4. When the words of The Battle Hymn lived out.   

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.”  Battle Hymn of the Republic. Such a climax will be seen from a vantage point of a bride or a run-away bride that has rejected Christ. The choices are clear and there are only two because “His truth is marching on.”

Run-Aways (Those that reject Christ)

Rev. 14:19    And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

Bride  (those that accept Christ)

Rev. 22:17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

In which of the group will you be?

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

Romans 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

“Would you like that super-sized?”, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge 06/24/12

“Would you like that super-sized?”,  a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Salvation is attained through believing . Last week we  described believing as an event that demands a response. How many times have we seen a raised hand, even heard a confession and then see that person fall by the wayside? The Christian journey begins here but we need to continue. The greatest challenge as a pastor is see his flock grow, not in size but in maturity.

I just saw a Nike T-Shirt on Father’s Day. It read, ”Talk Is Cheap, Just Do It”.

Easier said than done?

 John 8:31-32  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; [32] And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Psalm 31:23  O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

James 1:23  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

James 1:25   But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Matthew 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,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 25:14-21 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. [15] And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. [16] Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. [17] And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. [18] But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. [19] After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. [20] And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. [21] His lord said unto him, Well done, thou 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.

” Daddy called him Daddy ” sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge     

Song:  “Papa’s Table Grace” sung by Pastor Daughtridge  

Remembering Dad

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.”

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

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

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.

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.

2.The  Spiritual Man

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 6:5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. [6] 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.

3. Generational Curses or Blessing

“Tomorrow’s  generations are affected by our decisions today.”


Genesis 13:4  Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the Lord.


Genesis 26:25  And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the Lord and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac’s servants digged a well.


Genesis 35:1  And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.


Genesis 39:2-4  And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. [3] And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand. [4] And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

“MOM” sermon notes on Mother’s Day by Pastor Richard Daughtridge of Jacob’s Church ,a historical Civil War Era church near Gettysburg in Fairfield, Pennsylvania near Frederick and Hagerstown, Maryland.

Posted in Events, Sermons, Weekly Bell Ringer on May 10, 2012 by jacobschurch

How do I talk about mothers, without feeling like I am boasting. I was blessed with the most wonderful mom, and I watched with admiration the way my wife cared for our children as they grew up. At times I felt like one of them. My children and her grandchildren  are still her biggest fans.  I learned to appreciate moms from the two most wonderful mothers that I’ve ever met, my mom and my wife. Motherhood is a calling, a chore, a battle, a blessing and a gift. Mothers deserve our praise, our recognition and our help.

(M)ajesty  (No greater way to describe a mother.)

(O)ath   (To oath to God is to partner with God on behalf of our children.)  

(M)ission  (The bigger picture of replenish and multiply.) 



Proverbs 31:11-12  The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

Proverbs 31:28-31 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. [29] Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. [30] Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. [31] Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.


1 Samuel 1:11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

Joshua 24:15  And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.


Genesis 1:28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Mission is  a commission   God,  Husband , Wife

Ephes. 5:25  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

1.To be head of the wife (Ephes. 5:23).

2.To love their wives as Christ loved the Church (Ephes. 5:25).

3.To love their wives as their own bodies (Ephes. 5:28,33).

4.To nourish (Greek: ektrepho,  bring up, care for, protect, Ephes. 5:29;

5.To cherish (Greek: thalpo,  to foster, warm in one’s bosom, Ephes.5:29

6.To be joined as one flesh (Ephes. 5:30-31)

7.To leave their parents for their wives (Ephes. 5:31)

8.To cleave to their wives (Ephes. 5:31; Matthew 19:5)

Ephes. 5:22   Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

Col. 3:18  Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

Four Commands for Wives

1.   Submit to their husbands as to Christ (Ephes. 5:22).

2.   Recognize the headship of their husbands (Ephes. 5:23).

3.   Be subject to their husbands (Ephes. 5:24).

4.   Reverence their husbands (Ephes. 5:33).


Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

“Christian Church Begins ”, a sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

The resurrection changed everything in the lives of those that followed Christ. They watched Christ live, die, and witnessed a  Risen savior. Then they watched as Christ ascended  to Heaven.   They now were commissioned and empowered to begin one of the greatest institutions ever founded, the church.  How would they organize? They were all  different yet resting on them was the responsibility to deliver the Gospel to the whole world. The Church begins. Let’s follow in their footsteps and maybe we to may see our world changed.

Jesus’ Prayer

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

A anecho : “The exercise of patience; long suffering; indulgence towards those who injure us; lenity; delay of resentment or punishment.” And lenity is defined as “mildness of temper; softness; tenderness; mercy.”“To hold oneself up against, i.e. put up with: – bear with, endure, forbear, suffer.”

Ephesians 4:1-3 “Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance [anecho—forbearance] for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace”.

Colossians 3:12-14 “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with [anecho] one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity” .

C communication


Matthew 5:24  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

C constraint

1 John 4:10-11  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.

Philemon 1:18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;

1 John 4:18-21  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. [19] We love him, because he first loved us. [20] If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? [21] And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

1 John 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1 Cor. 12:12-20  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. [14] For the body is not one member, but many. [15] If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? [16] And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? [17] If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? [18] 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.

1 Cor. 12:23-31  And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. [24] For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: [25] That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. [26] And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. [27] Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. [28] And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. [29] Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? [30] Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? [31] But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
