Sermons about Function
Unity amidst diversity reveals the beauty of Christ’s body.
A church must learn to function as a body with Christ as the head. God gives gifts to each member of the body of Christ for specific ministry. This gifting involves four things: divine manifestation, spiritual incorporation, individual expression and loving cooperation.
Too often churches major on either theology to the neglect of practice, or practice to the neglect of theology. Scripture reveals that both are essential in a truly biblical, healthy church. While the book of Acts should be viewed as descriptive rather than prescriptive, the initial form and function of the New Testament church reveals biblical principles that are still relevant today and that must be held in view in the life of the church.
God gave us the family ... with distinctive roles and responsibilities ... as a Gospel witness to a lost world. It is the church's job to encourage families to fulfill those roles.
This message is focused on reclaiming the family. Pastor Radcliff shows us the sibling rivalry and ethnic issues boiling between Moses, Aaron, Miriam and Moses' wife.
Paul takes a look at how we should manage our family relationships.....Using the word Function; The particular purpose for which something exists.... and the word Form: The particular shape or way a certain thing is done...
Colossians 1:21-23 The young Christians at Colosse were at one time alienated from God and hostile towards him. This is the predicament of everyone apart from Christ. As a result of the Fall, humanity has been exiled and lives in a constant state of alienation and hostility. The only answer is the gospel through which God redeems us to himself and gives us hope to persevere until the end when we stand before him reconciled by Jesus.
Functional Christianity There is a significant difference between "confessional" Christianity and "functional" Christianity. True Christianity is not measured simply by what you confess, or believe, but by how you live. If Jesus is the reigning Lord of heaven and earth, then discipleship is measured by how you live in relation to the rule of Jesus.
