1 TIMOTHY: 11.30.2009

Filed under: Old & New Testament — Adam Osborne @ 7:32 pm

1 TIMOTHY

  • 1 Tim 1:12 (NIV) I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.
  • 1 Tim 2:1-2 (NIV) I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
  • 1 Tim 2:5 (NIV) For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
  • 1 Tim 4:4-5 (NIV) For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with Thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
  • 1 Tim 4:16 (NIV) Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
  • 1 Tim 5:1-5 (NIV) Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity. 3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 5 The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help.
  • 1 Tim 5:8 (NIV) If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
  • 1 Tim 6:6-8 (NIV) But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
  • 1 Tim 6:12 (NIV) Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 THESSALONIANS: 11.24.2009

Filed under: Old & New Testament — Adam Osborne @ 8:18 pm

1 Thessalonians

  • 1 Thes 4:7 (NIV) For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.
  • 1 Thess 4:11 (NIV) Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you,
  • 1 Thess 4:14 (NIV) We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
  • 1 Thess 4:16-17 (NIV) For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
  • 1 Thess 5:14-18 (NIV) And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak,
    be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else. 16 Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
  • 1 Thess 5:21-22 (NIV) Test everything. Hold on to the good. 22 Avoid every kind of evil.

Filed under: Old & New Testament — Adam Osborne @ 8:11 pm

COLOSSIANS

  • Col 1:16 (NIV) For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
  • Col 3:1-2 (NIV) Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
  • Col 3:8 (NIV) But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.
  • Col 3:12-15 (NIV) Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
    13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
  • Col 3:17 (NIV) And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
  • Col 3:23 (NIV) Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,

PHILIPPIANS: updated 4.8.2016

Filed under: Old & New Testament — Adam Osborne @ 6:41 pm

Philippians

Citizens of Heaven

Philippians 3:12-4:1
Rev Allen Acker, 09.02.2012

3:12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.

17 Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. 18 For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

4:1 Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.

CHARACTERISTICS OF CITIZENS OF HEAVEN:
• Vv12-14 We are a work in progress.
• We are not done growing. We are works in progress. We will be more righteous in the future.
• Vv15-16. We gain a different perspective on life. We give up what we can not keep, to gain what we can not lose.
• Ephesians 2:8-10 we are saved by grace through faith, hitch should result in a natural flowing of good works.
• Vv17. We stand together rather than falling apart.
• Often we use false humility to not take on duties that we should do in the church. We say “oh we are not good enough to teach that class”…… When we should be taking on that responsibility and allowing God to help you to grow.
• Vv18. Renounce the earthly for the sake of the eternal.
• Vv19-4:1 Heavenly citizens know that they are not home yet. We are just passing through. 1 Peter 2:11 We are aliens.


Key Scriptures in Philippians

  • Phil 1:6 (NIV) being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
  • Phil 1:21 (NIV) For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
  • Phil 2:4 (NIV) Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
  • Phil 2:14 (NIV) Do everything without complaining or arguing,
  • Phil 4:5-6 (NIV) Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,
    by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
  • Phil 4:8 (NIV) Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
    whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
  • Phil 4:13 (NIV) I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

EPHESIANS: Key Scriptures 11.21.09

Filed under: New Testament — Adam Osborne @ 4:54 pm

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may import grace to the hearers.

Ephesians 5:11-17 (NIV) Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible,
14 for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: “Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” 15 Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

Ephesians 6:16-17 (NIV) 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
