Sermons about Maintenance
In part 3 of the Building Relationships series and using biblical references from Phelemon, Matthew 5:27 and James 5:12, Pastor Rudy Bropleh explains how relationships affect results because we need to say what we mean and mean what we say during the maintenance phase. We need to take Jesus serious and watch Him work for us. If you lack the art of forgiveness, you cannot have good relationships. There are 4 (building) tools needed in order to maintain positive and effective relationships: 1) Thought; 2) Trust; 3) Tact, and 4) Time. Check it out and stay tuned for part 4.
19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you." 20When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." 22And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld."
It is much easier to build the new than it is to maintain the old. The principle of maintenance is often overlooked in a materialistic culture coupled with a consumer mentality. Maintenance is the responsibility of life; it causes that which is given to function better, last longer and cost far less in the long run.
