INTRO: QUALITIES OF A BISHOP

1: BLAMELESS

A) NOT SINLESS

B) WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE BLAMELESS

C) IT MEANS TO BE AUTHENTIC OR GENUINE

POINT: 1 PETER SAYS WE ARE ALL PART OF A ROYAL PRESITHOOD IN CHRIST JESUS. PAUL GIVES THE QUALITIES OF A BISHOP OR PASTOR AND SAYS HE HAS TO BE AUTHENTIC IN HIS LIFE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.

2: WHY USE THE QUALITES OF A BISHOP?

A) FIRST THEY ARE THE HEAD OF THE LOCAL ASSEMBLY

B) THEY SET THE EXAMPLE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THAT CHURCH

C) IF THEY ARE NOT GENUINE OR AUTHENTIC IT WILL SHOW IN THEY CONGREGATION

D) THE LEADER HAS TO PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH

POINT: PAUL SAID IN ROMANS 1:16 HE WAS NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST. HE WAS SHY ABOUT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE RICHES OF THE LIVING A LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS. THE MAN OF GOD HAS TO BE REAL NOT PERFECT, NOT SINLESS BUT BLAMELESS, NOT ASHAMED HE HAS ALLOW THE WORD OF GOD TO GUIDE HIS LIFE AND HIS DECISIONS.

BODY: CHRISTIAN BE AUTHENTIC.

1: WHAT IS AUTHNETIC?

A) CONFORMING TO AN ORIGINAL, NOT FALSE BUT REAL

B) BEING EXACTLY WHAT YOU CLAIM TO BE.

C) WE HAVE TO MOLD OURSLEVES AND FORM OUR MINDS TO THE MIND OF CHRIST

D) HOW?

E) ALLOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT FULL FREEDOM TO ENDWELL OUR LIVES

POINT: YOU CAN’T JUST TALK AND PEOPLE SEE AUTHENTICITY IT’S LIFESTYLE, IT’S ACTION WITHOUT WORDS, IT’S TIME OUT OF YOUR LIFE ON BENT KNEES, IT’S TEARS SHED FOR LOST SOULS, AND A DEEP DEISRE TO DO WHAT IS THE FATHER’S WILL AND NOT WHAT IS YOUR OWN. COFORMING TO CHRIST IS BECOMING IDENTICAL TO HIM.

2: GALATIANS 2:11-21

A) PAUL AND PETER

B) PAUL REBUKES THE GREAT APOSTLE

C) FACE TO FACE

D) IN FRONT OF EVERYONE

POINT: STRONG SCENE BETWEEN THE TWO GREAT MEN OF FAITH ONE IS TAKEN IN A FAULT AND THE OTHER IS QUICK TO CORRECT. NOTICE THE APOSTLE PAUL IS CONSTRUCTIVE BUT STERN IN HIS CORRECTION.

3: PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH

A) IF YOU PREACH FORGIVENESS TO OTHERS

B) IF YOU PREACH DEDICATION TO OTHERS

C) IF YOU PREACH FAITHFULNESS TO OTHERS

D) WHAT EVER YOU URGE OTHERS TO DO

POINT: MANY CHILDREN OF GOD ARE INSTRUCTORS AND EXPERTS IN EVERYTHING. AND THEY DON’T MIND TELLING YOU HOW OR WHAT TO DO. MOST THOUGH DON’T APPLY THE SAME STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES FOR THEIR OWN LIVES. BE AUTHENTIC WALK WHAT YOU TALK.

CLOSING: PETER’S FOLLY

1: HE CARED WHAT OTHERS WOULD THINK

A) THE JEWS FROM JERUSALEM SHOWED UP

B) HE GOT FROM THE TABLE AND WALKED OFF

C) WHAT WOULD THEY SAY IF THEY SAW ME

POINT: WHAT YOU DO FOR CHRIST DO IT OPENLY THINGS DONE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND UNDER TABLES ARE THINGS THAT CAN BE USED AGAINST YOU. IF YOUR TRULY SERVING GOD IN THE MATTER YOU DON’T NEED TO HIDE ANYWAY.

2: PAUL WAS AUTHENTIC

A) HE PREACHED JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH

B) CHRIST WAS OPEN TO EVERYONE

C) GOD WAS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS

D) ALL WERE SINNERS AND ALL HAD TO REPENT

POINT: WHEN ONE BROTHER IS IN A FAULT IT IS THE DUTY OF THE OTHER CHRISTIANS TO CORRECT HIM IN GRACE AND TRUTH.

CONCLUSION: ALLOWING LOST PEOPLE TO SEE CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE REQUIRES TWO THINGS FIRST CHRIST HAS TO BE IN YOUR LIFE AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR. SECOND YOU HAVE TO BE AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE IN WHAT YOU DO.

BE REAL, NOT HOLIER THAN THOU, BUT REAL
