Scripture at Sunrise 8.1.2011

2 Corinthians 10:7-18 | Morning Service | Pastor Steve Wainright

Marks of Spiritual Leaders:

  • Must be of Christ and have a personal relationship with Him. (vs. 7)
  • Build up others spiritually. (vs. 8)
  • Love for the people. (vs. 9)
  • Speak the Word of God. (vs. 10)
  • Consistent in character. (vs. 11)
  • Humility. (vs. 12-18) Realizing you’re spiritually bankrupt, poor in spirit, and you’re unworthy of God’s grace. Real leaders desire to give the glory to the right One, the only One who deserves the glory anyway.
1 Corinthians 10:31 | Evening Service | Bro. Anthony Vance
“Man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” -Westminster Shorter Catechism
1)Give glory to God. (vs. 31)
2)Don’t offend fellow believers. (vs. 32)
Do ALL to the glory of God.
1)Our aim: the glory of God.
        Bringing glory to self is prideful and robs God of His deserved glory. So often we crave the attention and favor of others, but we should do what we do for the glory of God rather than the praise and spotlight of men.
2)The action: Do. Do.
You’re always doing something and that something should glorify God. Be doers of the Word! Don’t be concerned with falling short, be concerned about your aim.
3)The extent: Everything (whether, whatever, all)
Question to ask yourself: “If I _____, will it glorify God?”
Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11

Scripture at Sunrise 1.4.10

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”  -1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.  What would you do in a temple?  You have been bought with a price and redeemed by the precious blood of Christ, therefore glorify God in everything you do.  (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Scripture at Sunrise 4.22.09

“May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Romans 15:5-6

God has made all things for His glory.  How do we know when we are aiming for God’s glory? 
-When we prefer God’s glory above all things.
-When we are content, God will and should get glory any time, any place- even if it crosses our purpose. 
-When we give a frank confession to sin. 
-When we are fruitful.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.24.09

Truly Living the Christian Life

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”  -Colossians 3:17

The sign over the church door where I attended as a boy read, “The Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silent.” I mistakenly took that to mean that I had just entered the holy temple and had better start acting religious.

We are the temple of God, not a building made of brick and mortar. Wherever we go, whatever we do, we are to be doing all in the name of Jesus.

The secular is to be sanctified so that Jesus will be glorified in everything. Because He lives in you, every day is a holy day, not just Sundays. The spiritual life is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for all eternity.

Have you ever had a home appraised? Get a trusted friend or loved one to give you an appraisal of the home where the Holy Spirit dwells — you! Are there areas that need repair, restoration, or removal?
