THEME: BEING STEADFAST WITH GOD

TEXT:1 COR.15:58 2 TIM. 3:10-15

NOW BRETHERN AND SISTERS, GOD HAS MADE THE WORLD SO SEPERATED IN IT’S GENERAL ORDER THAT MAN ARE FORCED TO CO-OPERATE TO GET MOST OF GODS BLESSINGS.

THE FARMER WHO RAISES WHEAT FOR MARKET MUST HAVE THE CO-OPERATION OF THE MARKET. HE MUST HAVE THE CO-OPERATION OF THE FARM MACHINERY, THE TRANSPOTATIONS, THE MILLERS, THE MERCHANTS, THE BAKERS. HE ALSO HAS TO HAVE THE CO-OPERATION OF HOUSEWIVES TO SELL ONE BUSHEL OF WHEAT.

IS THE RESULT OF MUCH CO-OPERATION. THE CHURCH NEVER IN ANY TASK UNTIL IT FAILS TO CO-OPERATION WITH IT HEADS.

I HEARD THE WORDS OF JESUS SAYING,’ABIDE IN ME, FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING. I STOPPED BY HERE THIS EVENING TO LET YOU KNOW BROTHER AND SISTERS TO BE STEADFAST IN THE GOD.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH JUST A LITTLE WHILE HERE.

YOU KNOW A FOOTBALL TEAM HAS ELEVEN PLAYERS WITH ITS CAPTIAN WHO CALLS THE PLAYS. BUT THE CAPTIAN CAN’T WIN THE GAME ALONE. IT TAKES ALL ELEVEN PLAYERS GIVING THEIR BEST TO WIN THE GAME.NOW DON’T BE LIKE THE YOUNG SOLDIER THAT WAS TRAINING AND IN THE MILITARY MANEUVER AD TO CRAWL ON HIS BELLY WITH MACHINE GUN FIRING OVER HEAD.

AS HE CRAWLED TOWARD THE ENEMY TRENCHES. HALFWAY DOWN THIS YOUNG SOLDIER MET A SNAKE, JUMPED UP IN THE LINE OF FIRE, AND MET DEATH INSTANTLY.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE MINISTRY. WHILE ON YOUR CHRISTIAN JOURNEY, YOU WILL MEET THAT OLD SNAKE , THAT OLD DEVIL. BUT DON’T JUMP OUT OF LINE. DON’T BACK UP ON GOD.

YOU SEE, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER FOR THE SOLDIER TO HAVE TANGLED WITH THE SNAKE. IF HE HAD CAUGHT IT CLOSE TO THE HEAD, CHANCES ARE HE WOULDN’T HAVE GOTTEN BITTEN.

IT TAKES TEAM WORK.SO IT IS TODAY, THE PASTOR CAN’T WIN THE FIGHT ALONE. AS I FORSTATED IT TAKES TEAM WORK. YOU ARE A TEAM FIGHTING SIN AND SATAN. YES, YOU ARE IN THE ARMY OF THE LORD.

YOU SEE FATE HAS A WAY OF BRINGING US FACE TO FACE WITH THE INEVITABLE. THE DEVIL IS GOING TO CHALLENGE YOU AND GOD WILL TRY YOU. BUT IF YOU BE STEADFAST IN GOD, HE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME FOR JUST A LITTLE WHILE.

NOW DON’T BE LIKE THE YOUNG SOLDIER THAT WAS TRAINING AND IN THE MILITARY MANEUVER hAD TO CRAWL ON HIS BELLY WITH MACHINE GUN FIRING OVER HEAD.

AS HE CRAWLED TOWARD THE ENEMY TRENCHES. HALFWAY DOWN THIS YOUNG SOLDIER MET A SNAKE, JUMPED UP IN THE LINE OF FIRE, AND MET DEATH INSTANTLY.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE MINISTRY. WHILE ON YOUR CHRISTIAN JOURNEY, YOU WILL MEET THAT OLD SNAKE , THAT OLD DEVIL. BUT DON’T JUMP OUT OF LINE. DON’T BACK UP ON GOD.

YOU SEE, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER FOR THE SOLDIER TO HAVE TANGLED WITH THE SNAKE. IF HE HAD CAUGHT IT CLOSE TO THE HEAD, CHANCES ARE HE WOULDN’T HAVE GOTTEN BITTEN.

AND EVEN IF IT HAD BITTEN HIM HE COULD HAVE GOTTEN MEDICAL AID. BUT THERE WERE NO CHANCE ESCAPING THE MACHINE GUN FIRE IT WAS SET.

SO IT IS WITH GOD’S LAW, THEY ARE SET. SO DON’T LET THE DEVIL CAUSE YOU TO GET OUT OF LINE WITH GOD. YOU SEE YOUR PASTOR IS COUNTING UPON EACH OF YOU TO GIVE YOUR BEST EFFORTS.

YOUR BEST CO-OPERATION, AND YOUR BEST TEAM WORK, TO WIN THE BATTLE FOR THE LORD. NOT ONLY YOUR PASTOR BUT YOUR CHURCH IS COUNTING ON YOU. ALSO TO HELP SUPPORT THE SERVICE, SUNDAY SCHOOL, ECT.

NOW FROM OUR SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY. THEREFORE, MY BELOVED BRETHERN BE YE STEADFAST, UNMOVEABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD, FOR AS MUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YOUR LABOR IS NOT IN VAIN, IN THE LORD.

NOW THE APOSTLE, PAUL NO DOUBT HAD IN MIND SUCH A SERVICE AS WE ARE HAVING TODAY. WHERE;

CO-OPERATION BY MEMBERSHIP HAS EXPRESSED ITSELF IN SELECTING IT’S MINISTERS AND LEADER WHO SHALL LEAD ON TO VICTORY. NOW AS THE APOSTLE WROTE URGING THE CHURCH OF CORINTH TO BE STEADFAST. HE WAS ALSO TALKING TO THE ST. PAUL MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH, TO BE STEADFAST IN THE LORD.

TO BE STEADFAST MEANS TO BE SETTLED [ROLLING STONE, STARTING IN RUSTBURG GO TO LYNCHBURG, APPOMATTOX AND END UP IN FARMVILLE.]AND NOT MOVED BY EVERY WIND STORM THAT RISE.

BRETHERN AND SISTERS YOU ARE BEING ORDAINED TODAY BECAUSE YOUR PASTOR AND THIS CHURCH BELIEVERS IN YOU AND THEY BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL BE IN THE FUTURE AS YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST.

I STOPPED BY TO TELL YOU TO BE FIRM IN THE BIBLE DOCTRINE OF ONE LORD, ONE FAITH AND ONE BAPTISM. YOU ARE ORDAINED TODAY AS MINISTERS OF THIS CHURCH, THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND MEMBERS IN CHURCH WHERE MEN AND WOMEN ARE BORN AGAIN.
