Sermons about Training
Jesus stood before the actual "Gates of Hades" in Caesarea Philippi and declared that nothing would prevail against His Church. How do we move to be a prevailing, victorious and potent Church, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ? One step is to recognize that we all need to be 'trained in righteousness". What does this training look like? How do we take part? How do become trainers ourselves?
Often in the business of life we forget that WE ARE AT WAR! We are at war with Satan and his demonic forces who are bent on destroying the wonderful plan of our Commander-In-Chief Jesus Christ! We are in Mission on a mission and we need to be trained so that we can wage a skilled and effective warfare. This year our theme is B.A.S.I.C. Training, Brothers And Sisters In Christ training. We are not just getting back to the basics. We are re-establishing the basics and beyond.
B.A.S.I.C Training. Brothers and Sisters in Christ! We are at War! We are at war with Satan and his demonic forces who are bent on destroying the wonderful plan of our Commander-In-Chief....Jesus Christ. We are on a mission and we need to be trained so that we can wage a skilled and effective battle plan. The godd news is when we look in the back of the Book, the outcome of this spiritual warfare is clear....we win! 2 Timothy 2:1-7
As Christ-followers we are constantly Under Construction. God is continually chipping away at the things that don't look like His Son and molding us into the sons and daughters He desires! We do that with our children, too. So, how does a godly parent parent? This is what our October series is all about. But we need to remember, when we a in a position to influence students we must first exhibit those traits we wish to see in them. It's not only the kids that are under construction...we are, too!
The essentials of godly parenting have been sadly lost in our post-modern society. Even in the church, parenting has largely been relegated to discipline for bad behavior but very little training in times of non-conflict. In this teaching, pastor Andy endeavors to teach parents how to pass on a godly heritage by focusing on the essentials of training children in the way they should go.
In this teaching, guest speaker Pastor Gregg Jackson speaks passionately about the need for a multi-generational mindset among God's people so that we can impact the generations for Christ.
The main thrust of this passage is that if we live our life pursuing trivial things, even trivial things that seem & sound spiritual then we'll never mature enough to leave behind anything more than a trivial legacy. Paul outlines a way for Timothy to continue to move beyond the trivial things to pursue the things that matter - and to leave behind a lasting legacy for Jesus.
