lass=MsoNormal align=right style='text-align:right'>1) 12-28-08…SBC…PMPM Reflection of AM Sermon – Hebrews 10:19-25
 
Ø      Christ’s ministry here on earth was for a purpose:
 
Primary – to provide the free gift of salvation
Secondary – that we might be converted and live in faith, hope and love (evidence of our salvation) – Mt 3:8
 
Ø      based on what Christ has done for us we are to draw near to God in Christian living
 
Ø      We must be a growing church
 
*What two kinds of growth are evidenced in the Bible?
*(numeric – Gen. 1:22 and personal – Eph 4:15-16)
 
* A healthy church will be characterized by a serious concern for spiritual growth of it’s members.
* In a healthy church people will want to get better at following Jesus Christ
 
Ø      Just because a church is more crowded with people than it was a few years ago doesn’t mean that it is a healthy church.
Ø      When it comes to growth there are a few thing that we must remember
 
* God causes growth (both numeric and personal)       1 Co 3:6-7; Mk 4:26-29
* Individual Christians must have something to do with growth         2 Peter 3:18
 
*Psalm 92:12-15*
 
1-      /(v12) The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree/, whose growth may not be so rapid, but whose endurance for centuries is in fine contrast with the transitory abundance of the meadow.[1]
/ /
a-      the truly godly man under all adversities retains the joy of his soul, and continues to make progress in the divine life.
2-      (v13) No heart has so much joy as that which abides in the Lord Jesus.
Fellowship with the stem begets fertility in the branches.
– they will flourish
 
3-      (v14) Nature decays but grace thrives.
Fruit, as far as nature is concerned, belongs to days of vigor; but in the garden of grace, when plants are weak in themselves, they become strong in the Lord, and abound in fruit acceptable with God.
 
4-      (v15) This mercy to the aged proves the faithfulness of their God, and leads them to shew that the Lord is upright, by their cheerful testimony to his ceaseless goodness.
Ø      Our motivation in growth is to be established in God’s Word
Ø      We must not be solely relying on what someone else has written about the text, but instead to know what the text says – before jumping to what a text means, we need to see what it says
Ø      Lamplighters – an bible study method that will get you knowing and applying the text
 
How much of a passion do we have for true Bible study (knowing the text)?
This new year, strive for a passion for Bible study, a love for the God who inspired it with the motivation to be established in God’s Word.
