Good Morning!

#1  Loyalty to Christ and the Bible

A commitment to follow Christ through uncompromising obedience to His word.  Like two wheels on a bicycle, loyalty to Christ and the Scriptures work in tandem.  

“…Lord to whom (else) shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life.”  (Jn. 6:68b)

#2  Commitment to the Great Commission

Partnering with God in winning the lost and discipling the saved:   

“…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.”  (Matt. 28:19, 20)

#3  Faith in the Promises of God

God has given us His “great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature.”  (II Pet.1:4)

The promises of God are foundational to our faith, giving us hope and the ability to believe God for the furtherance of His Kingdom.  Without the promises, we end in despair.

#4  Vision for Spiritual Reproduction

Investing your life in that of another. Christ invested in the 12.  Paul invested in Timothy: The things you have heard me say…entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others also.” (II Tim 2:2)  Dr. Frank Labauch used the phrase, “Each one teach one.”

#5  Practice of Spiritual Disciplines

  • Abiding in Christ. (Jn. 15:5)
  • Obedience to the Word of God. (Jn. 14:21)
  • Intake of God’s Word through reading, hearing, meditation, memorization and (Jn. 8:31,32)
  • Speaking to God through Prayer. (Lk. 18:1)
  • Sharing your life through Fellowship with others. (Heb. 10:24, 25)
  • Witnessing: Sharing with others what you have seen of Christ. (I Jn. 1:3)

 

 

My prayer is that you are having a great week!
