Let’s Talk

Let us pray

As a Church we need to “Know the Rules!”

Let’s Talk

In your home, were there any rules you had to live by while growing up?
etc. (indoors before the street light came on) and yes we had street lights when I was growing up, in case you where wondering.
and yes the had street lights when I was growing up
No Lying or stealing
Those that can, please stand for the reading of God’s word
Matthew 28:19-20
Matthew 28:19–20 NKJV
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28:18–20 NKJV
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
In this passage we find three topics I find important to go over
Matthew 28:18-20
Authority
Baptizing
The Great Commission

All authority in heaven and on earth (v.18)

The resurrection is the ultimate validation of Jesus’ divine authority (compare 12:38–40; Eph 1:20–23). He extends this authority to His disciples to continue the work of the kingdom of heaven.

The resurrection is the ultimate validation of Jesus’ divine authority (compare 12:38–40; ). He extends this authority to His disciples to continue the work of the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 12:38–40 NKJV
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:28–40 NKJV
28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29 Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. 30 He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. 31 “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. 33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” 38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Luke 12:38–40 NKJV
38 And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 40 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
Luke 12:38-40
Ephesians 1:20–23 NKJV
20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. 22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
Matt
Eph 1:20
Matt
All authority has been given to Jesus by the Father
Let’s talk about Baptizing

Baptizing

Those who believed were to be baptized in water in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (v. 19)
3P’s will be baptizing next month in accordance to the Disciplines & Ordinances within the Church
Not only are we talking about Church Stuff, but we are doing Church Stuff

The Great Commission

Make disciples: The disciples task was to reproduce themselves by going, baptizing and teaching (that’s the churches Mission)
The Mission of the Church was sent to preach christ, by and with the authority of the Triune God.
Acts 1:7–8 NKJV
7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 1:7–8 NKJV
7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Faithlife Study Bible Mission in the Biblical Narrative

Mission of the Church

Sent to the world to preach Christ (Acts 1:7–8)—by and with the authority of the Triune God (Matt 28:16–20)—the Church’s mission is to bear witness to God’s reign through the proclamation of the gospel in various forms: through loving communion within the Church (1 Cor 12–14), humble service within and outside the community of faith, prayer and worship of God, signs and wonders that point toward the restoration of all things, and through forming disciples of Jesus (2 Cor 5:11–21; Eph 4:1–5:21).

Question:
How can every member in the church be a part of this Commission?

The Lord’s Supper

1 Corinthians 11:23-26
1 Corinthians 11:23–26 NKJV
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
Question:
Should communion be followed as a tradition or a time of celebration? Why?
Proverbs 1:1–4 NKJV
1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel: 2 To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, 3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity; 4 To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion—
Proverbs 1:1

Practical Points Within The Church

Respect for one another.
Everything we do should be done decently and in order
Give reverence to the reading of God’s Word by Standing
Refrain from walking and talking as much as possible during prayer and Scripture Reading
When service is starting let us give attention and prepare ourselves for worship
Pastor wants to be sure to show love to everyone (example hats off in church)
Silence your cellphones, inside voices, etc.
