Sermon Notes-8:30 & 9:30 Services

“Spiritual Maturity”

Matthew 5:43-48

 

Requirements for Spiritual Maturity:

 

1. Handling frustration.

    The spiritually mature person knows how to deal with disappointments, how to turn problems into opportunities, defeats into victories.

 

2. Know how to forgive.

    The quality of mercy is found in the spiritually       mature person.

 

3. Know how to be self giving.

    When Jesus tells us to “be perfect” , he is telling us      to be mature in loving others.

 

 

Sermon Notes-10:45 Service

“What is True Religion?”

James 1:17-27

 

1. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this:

2. To care for orphans and widows in their distress

3. To keep one-self unstained by the world

“A Prayer for Those Who Teach”
 
God be in my head and my understanding.
God be in my eyes and in my looking.
God be in my mouth and in my speaking,
God be in my heart and in my thinking.
God be at my end and in my departing.
Old English Prayer.
 
God, be in my head and in my understanding.
Lord, You have given me the privilege of teaching others about You. Guide my study of Your word that its message may shine through, that I may truly understand the story of Your love in the people of the Bible and especially in the gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ.
 
God, Be in my eyes and in my looking.
Help me to see each person in my class as You see him or her; someone precious in Your sight, Your child whatever the age. Help me remember each one daily in my prayers and envision them all sitting beside You, yearning for Your message of love and forgiveness and joy and peace.
 
God, be in my mouth and in my speaking. Guide me, Lord with the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit, that I may share the truth of the gospel message. Remind me continually, wherever I am, that I am a teacher in Your service and that the example I set speaks even more loudly than my words.
 
God, be in my heart and in my thinking. Come to me, God, in ways that are so real that I may speak from my own heart. Transform my thinking moment by moment that I may practice Your presence and live the life You created me to live.
 
God, be at my end and at my departing. When my time of teaching is over, continue to bless those who have been in my care. As others nurture them in the light of Your love, let the seeds we have planted together grow strong and flourish in lives of vital faith. And, dear God, continue to bring the assurance of Your eternal love to me, that all my days may be filled with the joy of sharing that love with others. Amen.
