What Should I Preach ?

guestpeaker:

When preaching we always should keep in mind that we must be worthy workers in the Hand of God willing to bring God His Word to the people and not the words of man. We may find it useful to have help-tools provided by many thinkers, but God’s Word has to stand in the first place.
Using the Bible we have to show our listeners what really is in it and show where human ideas may be wrong according to God His Word.
We ourselves do have to let us be Guided by the Bible itself, which brings answers to our and our listeners many questions.

+

To take note:

  1. to know what to preach
  2. When teaching God’s word begin with prayer
  3. preaching and praying go hand in hand
  4. if  stick stuck for a topic, open your Bible to any random spot and start reading
  5. listen hard
  6. let Holy Spirit to bring things to your mind through your heart
  7. preach your need
  8. think about your own spiritual needs
  9. make connection to Christ his offer
  10. proclaim of Jesus Christ and him crucified that is Spirit-empowered
  11. understand what went before + let others understand what went before
  12. explore and show how what you taught previously relates to Christ’s sacrifice for our sins
  13. prepare a backup sermon or two just in case something happens in our life => equip you to better respond if a last minute preaching opportunity crops up.

  • A true sermon is a real deed. (memoirandremains.wordpress.com)
    For this, therefore, I say that Christ Himself existed not to present us with the supreme spiritual spectacle of history, but to achieve the critical thing in history. The Gospel is an act of God,
    gathered in a point but thrilling through history, and it calls for an act, and inspires it. Its preaching must therefore be an act, a “function” of the great act. A true sermon is a real deed. It puts the preacher’s personality into an act. That is his chief form of Christian life and practice.
  • DIG for Friday the 7th of November…..check out the results of a lack of preaching of the true Word of God…..1 Timothy 1 v 5 (heilanword.wordpress.com)
    The opposite of teaching the Gospel of grace is teaching the law (1 Timothy 1 v 6 and 7), and from the previous verses we can see a danger of this.Teaching law (or not the true Gospel for new covenant believers) will results in hypocrisy and a lack of love; that is a powerful truth.

    Paul commands Timothy to ensure that no other doctrine, other than the grace of Jesus, is preached in the church.

    He is that concerned about the preaching of law and other perversions of the Gospel.

  • Christ is the centre of our Eucharistic Celebration (linmeyercatholiccommunity.wordpress.com)
    When preaching takes place within the context of the liturgy, it is part of the offering made to the Father and a mediation of the grace which Christ pours out during the celebration. This context demands that preaching should guide the assembly, and the preacher, to a life-changing communion with Christ in the Eucharist.  This means that the words of the preacher must be measured, so that the Lord, more than his minister, will be the centre of attention.
  • Hugh’s News & Views (Reading Gleanings . . .) (fellowshiproom.org)
    At no time in history have we needed preachers with clear and confident conviction more than we need them today. Our culture has become tolerant and pluralistic. When preachers absorb this world-view, their preaching becomes mere fluff and insipidness.
  • 2 Peter 1:12-21 God’s Word (jimerwin.com)
    “So we have the prophetic word strongly confirmed. You will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dismal place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” (2 Peter 1:19, HCSB)
  • People Are Watching (revderrickkeeter.wordpress.com)
    “The word “Christian” is both a noun and an adjective. We need more “adjective Christians”, more Christian Christians, who are more Christian in thought and spirit and deed as well as name.”The name “Christian” literally means “like Christ.” Are you a Christian?
  • Minimizing the Cross of Jesus Christ (dailybibleplan.com)
    No man or woman can be saved by his or her own deeds.  We are all saved by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  It is because of what He did that we can be reconciled with God, not because of anything we can do.
    +
    When a person thinks that “living right” can secure salvation, that person is essentially saying that Jesus did not have to die, but we know that Jesus opened the door to salvation for us.  When it comes to eternal life, Christ is the only key that fits that lock.
  • 19. Daily Bible Verse (12160.info)
    It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains.
  • What If Conservatives Actually Followed The Teachings of Jesus? (mbarnet.wordpress.com)
    Although the Old Testament is filled to the brim with passages of hatred, bigotry, and death, the New Testament features Jesus Christ, a homeless socialist spreading his message of love, generosity, and acceptance. If Jesus were to meet a member of the Republican party today, there’s no doubt he would be horrified at how his message has been distorted and forgotten amongst the most powerful evangelical Christians in the country.
  • A Jewish View Of Replacement Theology (lukeford.net)
    I grew up as a Seventh-Day Adventist thinking that Jews, for all intents and purposes, had disappeared, replaced by the Church. I grew up thinking that Christians were the real Jews, the true Jews, God’s Jews and that what the world called Jews were atheist imposters.

By Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield

One of the most frequent questions I get especially from new minsters is how do they know what to preach. It can seem daunting at first. A new topic every week for the next several decades of their career. First of all nobody can handle a career’s worth of decisions all at once But I wanted to commit some ideas to paper for those who might find themselves stuck for a sermon topic.

PRAY- I can think of nothing that a minister does that should not begin with prayer anyway. When teaching God’s word we certainly should do so. I know of churches with special facilities just to pray for their pastor while he is preaching. So there is little doubt that preaching and pray go hand in hand.

OPEN YOUR BIBLE- After you have prayed. If you are stick stuck for a topic, open…

Looking for Answers

guestpeaker:

Made in the image of God, we all have been implanted with the gene of looking for God. He, though humankind does not want to know of Him and rebelled/rebels against His Power is till prepared to come closer to those who are willing to find answers to their many questions. God already provided lots of answers to human’s questions. But not many do want to find those answers in the very old books. God’s Voice is still resounding all over the earth and many people are trying to bring others to God, but each individual has to make the own choice to prepare himself to hear and to listen to That Supreme Voice.
Let us find that Voice of God in the Book of books, not as such in the writings of human beings, being it philosophical or so called theologian works. Let us go back to the Word of God He gave us with the Bible and take the words in it for what they are, not twisting them with human dogma‘s.

+

To remember:

  • “Everybody’s looking for answers!” = mantra in journey.
  • Everybody’s looking for answers
  • we’d like to understand more than we do = part of human nature.
  • son of man = reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being
  • God spoke in the past & God speaks now
  • Son has delivered ultimate answer of our salvation

  • Sermon on Bible scripture: “Ye are Gods” (prayerupdates.org)
    If God created you in His image this means you have the attributes of God. And the attributes of God includes power of imagination, creativity, innovation, deep thinking, excellence and ingenuity.
  • Listen…. (thelivingmessage.com)
    Many people don’t want to hear someone preaching from the Word because it is God’s Truth. Some don’t think that it is true or that it is God’s Word, they think that the Bible is just a book of stuff, stories made up by some bunch of old guys which tell a little about historical figures and some of them are good stories but that is it, nothing more. Have you ever really listened to it, really sat down and read it? The Bible is about much more than Jewish history and the kings which ruled Israel, it is a condensed history of the world itself, from the viewpoint of God’s chosen people.
  • “It’s a great tragedy when the Bible is interpreted by those who are not in love.” ~~Bill Johnson (quotesthoughtsrandom.wordpress.com)
    God is all about relationships. His goal for us is to love Him.
  • Holy Spirit: The Presence of God (charleefelice.com)
    The Holy Spirit resides in each of us that believe that Jesus died for our sins, that He is our redeemer. It guides us, makes us conscious of our words and actions, convicts us when we sin, and grants us peace when we do right by Him, by others, and by our own selves.
  • The Power of the Spirit (histruthwillsetyoufree.wordpress.com)
    Where the words in the bible will point you to God, and help you know about God and Jesus, the Holy Spirit within you will help you know God and Jesus. The words have no power, only direction. The power to make the words real in your life comes from the Holy Spirit, within you.
  • What Does God Say About Your Spirit (yourgodmoments.wordpress.com)
    Christ Himself revealed both His Father’s true nature and how we must relate to that nature: God is a Spirit (a spiritual being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). Jn. 4:24 AMP
  • Affirmation of God: The Holy Spirit uses what I have. (tomraines.wordpress.com)
    Let us all trust that the Spirit will take what we have and complete God’s purpose through us. He will provide us the words to say and them the ears to hear. He Will fall on those we are to help.
  • There’s Nothing New Under The Son – Not Republican Nor Democrat (gunnyg.wordpress.com)
    There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.  And as most Christians understand, the lost not only refuse to see, but hate those offering sight. It’s always been so.
  • Blog for Week of November 16, 2014 (oldgreenbrierbaptistchurch.typepad.com)
    Would humankind be restored? The question of restoration is left open. What next, we might ask? God must step in to provide a way for sin-tainted human beings to come back to him. He starts his plan of restoration by choosing a man, Abram, and his wife, Sarai, through whom he will build a family and ultimately a nation.
  • In the Beginning… (herose4grace.wordpress.com)
    the Bible is Old.  It is an act of communication, written for us but not “to” us.  It is pre-science, pre Darwin, pre astro physics, pre, pretty much anything in our knowledge and perspective of the world today.  It is written for a culture that is thousands of years away from us in not only time, but culture.  Too often, we correspond the Bible to our way of thinking. Christians and atheists alike tend to their own world view or ego.  In order to truly grasp the words of this work, you have to step outside of our minds, our entire style and influence of thinking; discard science as we know it, culture as we know it, and meld into an ancient civilization that is overrun with beliefs and day to day encounters more foreign to us than stepping off of our planet and into a civilization of aliens on the other side of the universe.  In this time, the world was the product of a violent gnashing of gods; disorder and chaos at its core.  It was a world saturated in violent and destructive means.

One of my favorite movies in recent years is “O Brother, Where Art Thou”, and adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey, set in rural depression era South.

The main character in the movie is one of three escaped convicts, who travel back to his home in search of treasure.

As in Homer’s epic, these characters have a host of lively encounters and danger filled adventures throughout their travels. The main character, (taking the role of Odysseus) says repeatedly throughout the quest, “Everybody’s looking for answers!” The phrase becomes quite the mantra in the journey.

Everybody’s looking for answers…in some way or fashion. The zaniness of this movie reminded me of that simple fact; we don’t know everything, and we’d like to understand more than we do. It is part of human nature.

Though many shut their ears for the Most Important Voice in the world That Voice never gives up to try to reach those who can find solace in it.

Hang On!

guestpeaker:

Too many are afraid for what or Whom is mocked by the majority of society. Therefore they often miss the boat which can bring them to a safe-haven.
Mankind is given answers to their many questions, but not many do want to go looking into those old books which provides enough answers to get going again, to see the ‘upside of things’ again, and to find renewed strength to conquer this world.
When we dare look up and see in the wonders of nature the Might Hand of the Most High we shall find consolation and help. Let us not be blind for the free given solace and the empowerment which is lying in front of us in the Bible. It is by sharing that Word that we should help others also to find the Way to the better life.

To remember:

  1. safe-haven: only God gives inward peace
  2. depend on Him.
  3. God = mighty rock that keeps safe
  4. = fortress where you can feel secure.
  5. God saves and honours
  6. Trust God
  7. success is never defined nor determined by people
  8. People are frail, fickle, selfish and unreliable
  9. God never changes
  10. God will remain faithful to the cause and you
  11. realize value of growth and maturity
  12. God His Spirit = Guide
  13. Faith demands we look forward but fear will keep us frozen, unwilling and unbending.
  14. Keep your eyes on the King and follow His lead.

Courage

guestpeaker:

Often we do not want to give ourselves nor others enough time to grow up and to become that what we should really become, or what our destination is. Many dare not to be who they really are and put on a mask for the others instead being themselves and having more self-esteem.

Good to dare to thread the unknown, to gather strength to go into the depths of the valleys and to try out things, whatever others say to discourage. The one who goes his way ardent enough believing in himself will come somewhere where he shall not have to be ashamed for what he accomplished.

+

To remember:

  • be awake to your fears
  • gather your strength
  • develop from so many life lessons lived
  • move ahead with courage
  • trust
  • with clarity of purpose and calmness of heart, right action will lead you where you want to go.

Welkom:: Waarom sterren zoeken?

guestpeaker:

Door het overmatig voeden van beelden van luxe en zogenaamde hebbedingetjes die wij zouden moeten bezitten, anders zouden wij niet gelukkig kunnen zijn, voelen velen zich tekort gedaan in deze maatschappij.
In de sociale media wordt beelden en teksten geplaatst die de mensen veel beter doen voorkomen dan zij in werkelijkheid zijn. Door al die overdaad van zogenaamde ‘heerlijkheid’ te zien worden velen nog ongelukkiger.

Dat Facebook geen plek zou mogen zijn waar ook de minder goede kantjes van het leven worden getoond, verergert de zaak alleen maar. Want het zit gewoon in de mens om zich te vergelijken met anderen.

Te weinig mensen willen de ander een safe-haven, of veilig plekje gunnen waar men tot rust kan komen of waar mensen de mogelijkheid krijgen om hun verhaal, goed of kwaad, te mogen doen. Mededeelzaamheid is ook een woord dat stilaan uit het Nederlands vocabularium aan het verdwijnen is. Er zijn weinig mensen op deze aardbol te vinden die zo maar willen delen meet elkaar en laat staan zo maar tips en tricks weg te geven zonder er iets in de plaats voor te krijgen.

Het egoïsme voert hoogtij en het kapitalisme heeft de mensen ingesnoerd in een ban die sterker is dan de meeste zielen wel willen geloven.

Veel meer zielen zouden zich bereid moeten voelen om op de bres klaar te staan om anderen op te vangen. elk van ons kan zijn steentje bijdragen om hen die in een diep dal zitten een reddingslijn toe te werpen. Men hoeft geen watervallen van woorden of dure therapieën of grote instellingen, elke simpele ziel kan zijn helpende hand uitsteken.

Laten wij er werk van maken om meer dan één plek te bouwen waar anderen onze steun kunnen vinden. Voor helper en geholpen persoon kan het een zegen zijn. ZO zullen velen merken dat zij in die hel mensenschare toch niet zo alleen hoeven te zijn als zij denken.
Laten wij er zorg voor dragen dat er meer lichtpuntjes zijn in het duister. Aantrekkingspunten die eerder bereikbaar zijn dan de ontelbare sterren aan het hemelfirmament.

En toch blijkt uit onderzoek (Bruffaerts, Bonnewyn & Demyttenaere, 2008) dat 15% van de Belgen minstens één keer in het leven een depressie doormaakt. Bedenk daarbij hoeveel vrienden en familieleden deze personen dolgraag willen helpen en opvrolijken. Een heleboel mensen krijgen te maken met depressie in welke vorm of op welke manier dan ook.

“Hier wordt ik nu niet bepaald vrolijker van”, hoor ik u, beste lezer, denken. Wel, nee. Ik ook niet! Ik vind dat er verandering moet komen. Er moet een plek zijn voor mensen die zich (even) niet helemaal geweldig voelen zonder dat zij worden afgedaan als ‘downers’, ‘partypoopers’, ‘aandachtzoekers’ of ‘zeurpieten’…

Leeg en alleen

guestpeaker:

Eigenlijk hebben wij geen mens nodig die hoeft te zeggen wilt wat we moeten doen. Maar indien een persoon de nood voelt voor een stem in het duister, zou er iemand moeten klaar staan.
Hoe velen voelen zich niet alleen ook al zijn ze in een grote groep, ook al hebben zij massa’s Facebook ‘vrienden’?
Erg genoeg zien velen niet als er iemand is die zich eenzaam voelt. Rondloopt met het gevoelen alleen te zijn en dat er maar niets lijkt te deugen van wat ze doet.
Het mag dan wel goed zijn dat ze geen zin meer heeft om zichzelf te haten of om anderen te haten, dan is ze vele stappen te ver en ziet zij wie weet al de afgrond. Nochtans is voor eenieder vlak bij een brug over de wijde kloof. Ook is er oh zo dikwijls de uitgestoken hand die men niet ziet.
Daarom laat ons best maar kijken naar het zand onder ons en zien dat daar niet onze voetstappen lopen maar dat wij gedragen worden door dit leven … dat als wij ons willen laten dragen.

Spijtig komt het nog veel te veel voor dat jongeren kiezen om uit dit leven te stappen. Zij hadden de moed om een moeilijke knoop door te hakken. Spijtig genoeg was er niemand daar om hen een Boek vol Wijsheid te tonen dat hen het leven draaglijk kon maken en over de moeilijke perioden kon heen brengen, voor het te laat was.

Dag CRPS!

guestpeaker:

Nog veel te veel blijft het in het donker of in het onbekende dat er duizenden mensen in één land geketend zijn door onzichtbare boeien die een voelbare grens stellen elke dag weer op nieuw.
Zij die gebonden zijn, gekluisterd aan hun bed, gespiesd op hun stoel, opgesloten in hun huis, vastzittend in de cocon van onbegrip, moeten durven hun stem te laten horen. Het komt er op aan dat veel meer mensen die dagelijks geconfronteerd worden met pijn naar buiten komen en hun stem durven laten horen.

Proficiat voor hen die durven spreken.

Daar zit ik dan in mijn eentje op mijn bed na te denken hoe ik in hemelsnaam ‘Hart in Aktie’, of een ander programma met het hart op de juiste plek, kan benaderen. November is namelijk CRPS maand, 3 November is de dag van het Complex Regionaal Pijn Syndroom. ‘Dahag CRPS!’ Klein detail, in Nederland lijkt men dat niet te weten, of er wordt gewoon geen aandacht aan geschonken.
Moet ik een plotselinge dans, een flash mob, op straat organiseren, met mensen in rolstoelen, rollators en krukken? Of moet ik boos worden op alle professors in het ziekenhuis die zelfstandig geweldige onderzoeken leiden, maar geen ene reet aan de awareness van deze onmenselijke ziekte doen? Zo hoorde ik net dat CRPS ook wel de ‘suicide ziekte’ wordt genoemd. Daar had ikzelf nog niet de awareness van.
