HOUSE CARE FELLOWSHIP MESSAGE 21/02/2016.
TOPIC: OUR INEVITABLE ROLES IN A GROWING CHURCH (PART 2) .
TEXT: 1Timothy 4:11,16; Acts 20:26-28,32; Deuteronomy 28:1-2; John 8:32.
We must observe our members to ensure that they are properly born again, growing in the
faith and we must ensure the same in our lives - 1 Timothy 4:16, Proverbs 27:23. We should take care of ourselves and those around us- 1 Timothy 4:12,16.
We shall consider the following subheadings for better understanding;
POINTS 1: THE REASONS AND DANGER: We should know that out soul and those under us are Purchased by the Blood of Our Lord - Acts 20:28; We must give account of how we lived our lives and that of those under us- Romans 14:10,12. So, we must make sure we are born again properly and those committed into our hands or we run the risk of missing Heaven or those under us - 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
POINT 2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE AND THE RESULT: We should help those around us and under us to ensure that they are following or living right and we must teach them to do so. 1 Timothy 4:11; we must encourage, help and must not isolate them. Besides, we too must be an example to them - 1 Timothy 4:12; in living right, obeying the totality of the word and coming to the service on time, go for evangelism, pray without season, pay tithe, listening to message and growing in faith; and as we do, the result will be the growth; we and those under us shall be strong in the Lord.
