Making 21st Century Disciples

Posted 9/2/2018

Sunday Morning Sermon by Pastor Lee Evans

Making 21st Century Disciples

 
2 Tim. 2:2 & 3:14-17 (CSB)

What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.   2 Tim. 2:2


14  But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed. You know those who taught you, 15  and you know that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures, which are able to give you wisdom for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16  All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, 17  so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.    2 Tim 3:14-17

 
1. Teach the Bible!

14 I have given them your word. The world hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15  I am not praying that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16  They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17  Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. John 17:14-17

•It is the WORD OF GOD, it doesn’t just CONTAIN the word of God!  2 Tim. 3:16-17

•God’s TRUTH has PRIORITY over FEELINGS & our THOUGHTS .  "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways.“ This is the LORD's declaration. Isa. 55:8
•It is the SWORD of the SPIRIT. Eph. 6:17
•It is Living & Powerful. Heb. 4:12
•These are the “Words of Life.” John 6:68

  Ill. Ezekiel 37

 
2. Receive; don’t Re-Write the Bible
 
•Many have Fallen Away & false Prophets are re-defining essential doctrines.
•"Then they will hand you over to be persecuted, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of my name. 10  Then many will fall away, betray one another, and hate one another. 11  Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12  Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. Matt. 24:11
•The doctrine of Salvation, Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Matt. 7:13,14,21
•The doctrine of Sin & Judgment, 1 Cor. 6:9-11; Rev.19:20; 20:14; 21:8, 27

“Nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those written in the Lamb's book of life.” Revelation 21:27

 
3. Live out The Word
 
Humbly – Phil. 2:3; James 4:4-6,10

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.”
  Philippians 2:3

Lovingly – Phi. 2:2; James 2:8; Matt. 22:38

“Indeed, if you fulfill the royal law prescribed in the Scripture, Love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing well.”   James 2:8

Faithfully – 2 Tim. 4:2; 1 Cor. 4:2
 
21st Century Disciples of Jesus
 
•Must Know The Word & be willing to pay the price for Believing It; Receiving it & Living it!

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
