“WE CANNOT BE WITHOUT THE CHURCH ORDINANCES”
MATTHEW 28:19-20; 1 CORINTHIANS 11:23-30
INTRO: Sometimes in life we know the obvious but either forget to do it or neglect it. That is the way it is with the next two things WE CANNOT BE WITHOUT as Christians. I am talking about BAPTISM and THE LORD’S SUPPER. As Christians we know about them, but sometimes we fail to consider the IMPORTANCE OF THEM and WHY THEY ARE IMPORTANT TO GOD. So, today, we are going to briefly examine the ONLY TWO ORDINANCES JESUS CHRIST GAVE TO HIS CHURCH THAT HE EXPECTS US TO KEEP UNTIL WE SEE HIM FACE TO FACE…BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER.
WHAT IS AN ORDINANCE?
AN ORDINANCE IS A GOD ORDAINED RITE OR SYMBOL ADMINISTERED IN THE LOCAL CHURCH TO BE KEPT FAITHFULLY BY EVERY CHRISTIAN THROUGH THE CHURCH MINISTRY UNTIL WE SEE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

"WE CANNOT BE WITHOUT FORGIVENESS"
INTRO: One of the most BEAUTIFUL WORDS in the human vocabulary is "FORGIVENESS." In fact, the GREATEST PRHASE one can have directed to another is "I FORGIVE YOU." So much pain and unhappy consequences could be avoided if we would ALL LEARN TO FORGIVE OTHERS. In fact, the giving of FORGIVENESS to others should be INSTANT AND IMMEDIATE by every Christian in light of what Christ has done for us on the CROSS. AND YET, MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING BORN- AGAIN, GOD-FORGIVEN CHRISTIANS, WHOSE SINS HAVE ALL BEEN FORGIVEN BY GOD, PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE, OFTEN FAIL TO FORGIVE OTHERS! To say the least, for a Christian not to be willing to forgive others is a very sad situation in relation to God and to others. In reality, WE CANNOT BE WITHOUT FORGIVENESS, EITHER FROM GOD OR FROM OTHERS OR TO OTHERS if we are to please the Lord and live a life of emotional and spiritual freedom. BUT FORGIVENESS, RIGHTLY RECEIVED AND GIVEN, WILL TRANSFORM LIVES TO THE GLORY OF GOD! Let's examine why it is that WE CANNOT BE WITHOUT FORGIVENESS.

STUDIES IN THE EPISTLE OF EPHESIANS
"SOME REAL MARKS OF TRUE SALVATION"
INTRO: Recently over this pulpit I delivered a message that addressed the issue of what real Christianity is all about. Many people around the world do not know the truth of real Christianity and consequently do not have a real relationship with Christ. REAL CHRISTIANITY IS TO TRUST JESUS CHRIST ALONE AS SAVIOR. When a person TRULY TRUSTS CHRIST, CERTAIN DEFINITE RESULTS WILL BE SEEN. Those results are seen in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that says: "IF ANY ONE BE IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATURE; OLD THING ARE PAST AWAY; BEHOLD ALL THINGS BECOME NEW." In other words, there is a REAL CHANGE that takes place in the life of the REAL CHRISTIAN.
Our text today presents TWO REAL MARKS OF TRUE SALVATION that we want to observe. There is NO QUESTION about it, these two marks are seen in the life of every true born again Christian. So, let's observe.

INTRO: SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE PATRIOTIC? That is a question that may seem to be rhetorical or even redundant to some, but yet it is a serious question because there are some Christians who really wonder if the Bible supports the concept of CHRISTIAN PATRIOTISM. Let me ask you another question as well. WHAT SHOULD THE ATTITUDE OF CHRISTIAN CITIZENS BE TOWARD THE NATION IN WHICH THEY LIVE? I believe that is a VERY PRACTICAL QUESTION TO ASK because any nation can have rulers who are evil and situations that are ungodly that will lead to wrong doing from time to time. Certainly a BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW OF GOVERNMENT WOULD NEVER ENDORSE A KIND OF "BLIND PATRIOTISM" IN WHICH A CHRISTIAN WOULD GO ALONG WITH EVERYTHING A RULER OR POLICY WOULD ESTABLISH (ABORTION, BIG GOVERNMENT, OR SAME-SEX MARRIAGE WOULD BE EXAMPLES). But what about GENUINE PATRIOTISM? IS IT BIBLICAL? Today we will examine that concept of CHRISTIAN PATRIOTISM from the pages of scripture.

STUDIES IN THE EPISTLE OF EPHESIANS -TWO
(THE POSITION AND PRACTICE OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST)
"THE CAUSE AND EFFECT OF OUR POSITION IN CHRIST"
TEXT: VERSES 12-14
INTRO: A study of the Epistle of Ephesians is profitable for EVERY BELIEVER TO CONSIDER. WHY? Because it is a book that clearly speaks of the POSITION AND PRACTICE OF BELIEVERS IN CHRIST. Each book of the Bible has a theme as to why it was written which is why we should read each of them. As Christians it is VERY SIGNIFICANT that we understand each book of the Bible because God has given them to us in order to know WHO HE IS, WHAT HE EXPECTS AND HOW HE OPERATES. Yes, WE HAVE 66 BIBLICAL BOOKS TO TEACH US HOW TO LIVE TO PLEASE GOD....GET TO KNOW THEM DEAR CHRISTIAN. Today in Ephesians 1:21-24 we are going to observe the CAUSE AND EFFECT OF OUR POSITION IN CHRIST...A SUBJECT THAT WHEN WE UNDERSTAND IT WILL TRULY ENHANCE OUR LIFE AND SERVICE FOR CHRIST. So let's take a close look at what the Word of God has to teach us about our WONDERFUL POSITION IN CHRIST.
NOTE: In the first 11 verses of Ephesians 1, Paul lays down the FOUNDATION OF OUR POSITION IN CHRIST that includes our Spiritual Blessings (Vs. 3), our Election, Predestination and Adoption (Vss. 2,3), our Redemption through the Blood of Christ (Vs. 7) and our Eternal Inheritance through Christ (Vs. 11). ALL OF THIS IS DONE FOR THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY - VS. 12. HOW DID ALL OF THIS COME TO US AND WHAT IS THE ETERNAL EFFECT OF IT ALL? THE PASSAGE BEFORE US PROVIDES THOSE ANSWERS.
