Christ Is The Answer – How I Wish I Could Preach

      20000618 Christ Is The Answer - How I Wish I Could Preach - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Can a #preacher deliver an effective sermon without God’s help?  #Motivational maybe, nice sounding possibly, but not one that furthers the #Kingdom of #God.  What did Paul learn about preaching a clear gospel message?  That should give Believers confidence to share their faith.  Some people may be swayed by apologetics or defense of the Bible, but without a personal connection to Christ there can be no Salvation.  That’s why your testimony is so important, because no one can argue with personal experience.  Paul was obviously courageous, but what was his admitted fear?  How can we lift up God in our everyday conversations?  What is the danger of misplaced faith?

WITNESS BY THE LIVING GOD

During my summer breaks from college, I worked in the police department replacing secretaries on their vacations. I was a rotating secretary to the individual head of all the divisions:  Chief, Detective, Patrol, Traffic, Accidents, Juvenile , and Incarcerations!  Sort of a girl Friday.  It was a continuing learning experience. In the Detective Division there was an inside window with an enclosed room on the other side which always had a covering.  Then one day the cover was gone.  The Chief ask me to observe through the one way window as they questioned and recorded a person of interest.  I would become a #witness!  At the age of nineteen, I knew the validity of my responsibility.  How good is your word and witness in the eyes of the LORD?   “A faithful witness will not lie, but a false witness utters lies” Proverbs 14:5 We hear so many views and opinions today. Sound like Job 18 “How long will it be to the end of your words:  marked, counted and reputed vile…as the light of the wicked shall be put out and sparks of fire shall not shine”   Who is a faithful & a true witness?   “Behold MY WITNESS IS IN HEAVEN AND MY RECORD IN HIGH” Job 16:19    JESUS said, “There is another who bears witness of me, and I know that the witness which he witnesses of me is true” John 5:32  Will He find us a faithful and true witness?..“If you receive ‘the witness of men, the WITNESS OF GOD IS GREATER”  1John 5:9

Let’s talk about #Pentecost.  How did it happen?  When did it happen?  What happened?  Has it ever been repeated?  Is there a difference between the event repeating and the experience being repeated?  Is the Holy Spirit imparted to all believers equally?  What was the significance of the signs of wind, fire, and tongues that accompanied the initiation of the Holy Spirit’s ministry on Earth?  How was the Church born the day the Holy Spirit came down?  What does that mean for the governance and guidance of the Church?  All this power that was given to believers was meant to be implemented to witness.  What proves that witnessing in our own strength is fruitless?

The Winning Witness’ Technique

      19801207 Winning Witnesses - The Witness' Technique - Rev. Tommy Jones

 

Okay, for the past several weeks we have been readying ourselves to share the #Gospel to our #friends and #neighbors.  But how?  Is there one way that is better than the others?  While the message should be consistent, can the approach be tailored?  What part of the witnessing technique always stays the same?  How should a Christian approach one who is unsaved?  Boldness should be balanced with what?  How important is it to be sociable?  What kind of analysis should we do when witnessing?  What kind of analysis should we avoid?  Are we not all in the same boat?  Who actually convicts a person of their sin?  What are 5 verses that can explain the unchangeable message that we should be sharing with others?  Is that it?  Or is there one more step?

Are you a #disgruntled employee?  What does #God think about your labor? No matter what you do for a living, God has a plan for your work.  Is everyday work sacred?  What kind of opportunities can you find at work to serve the Lord?  Is work supposed to be separate from your spiritual life?  Why doesn’t God put all believers into perfect environments?  What does it mean to be ‘in the world, but not of the world’?  What is the difference between your calling and the way you make a living?  What are some right and wrong ways to witness at work?

As the #weather begins to turn more #Spring like, we all look forward to getting outside and possibly getting fit.  But, what about our spiritual fitness?  D-A-I-L-Y is the way we can accomplish just that.  How many days a week do we eat or feed our body?  How does that relate to how often we should feast on the Word of God?  Is reading the Lord’s Word the most frequent thing we should be doing?  What about praying?  What are the keys to successful prayers?  What is our Christian responsibility to present Jesus Christ to others?  Can a Christian go it alone?  From where should a Christian’s direction or control come?

The LIVING GOD #WITNESS

#You #Count!  Do you ever feel no one notices you?  Are you isolated?  Feel trapped?  Well, God is witnessing your life!  When my precious family developed #Find Bible Truth, I thought that it was a wonderful way to share the Bible.  We live in separate cities; yet God is witnessing our combined desire to serve Him by proclaiming the truth of the Bible.  Because of God’s Grace and all of their conscientious devotion to His Word, FBT is being viewed around the world in over 54 countries.  Praise the Lord. Wherever you are in this world today – You Count!  I remember back in the 1960’s when my sister and bother-in-law went to Kenya as missionaries.  She was a concert pianist, beauty queen, honors student – he was graduated from Rice with honors and both graduates of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Their first year was spent living in a tent – (no cell phones)  When they returned home on furlough after four years, I asked them have you seen many accept Christ as their Savior?  She said hopefully, “Not Yet”  At the end of another four years, the seed of God’s word, their witness, and the Holy Spirit brought hundreds in Kenya to accept Christ as Lord and Savior providing a new everlasting life.  I can shout for joy that some of the strong Christian people that meet our president this week in Kenya have been touched by God’s Word living among them.  You Count!  “Behold, I the LORD have given him for a WITNESS to the people, a leader and commander.  You shall call a nation that you do not know and nations that do not know you shall run to you because of the LORD thy GOD .” Isaiah 55:4,5  “now in Christ Jesus you who were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.  He is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of division between us.  He came and preached peace to you which were far off for through Him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.  Now we are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints and of the household of God.” Eph.2:13-19   YOU COUNT
