IV. HOW TO GO BACK TO THE ANCIENT PATHS

Read Jer 6:16.

V. WHAT THE “ANCIENT PATHS” MEANS FOR US

GOING BACK TO THE ANCIENT PATHS FOR THE PRESENT DAY CHURCH SHOULD BE TAKEN AS A METAPHOR FOR A RETURN OF THE CHURCH TO BIBLICAL TRUTH AND HOLY LIVING.


Iv how to go back to the ancient paths read jer 6 16

In CCM, the Lord has led us to consider the following areas as part of our call to return to the ancient paths:

1.Sense of Professionalism

2.Sense of Commitment

3.Sense of Accountability

4.Sense of Destiny

Watching Your Life and Doctrine

1Tim 4:16


Iv how to go back to the ancient paths read jer 6 16

1. WATCH YOUR LIFE CLOSELY. (1Tim 4:16a)

In Paul’s imperative “watch your life”, he is addressing the minister of God (4:6).

~ The general tendency is: what the leader is, his people will be.

~ Acts 20:28

~ We must watch our walk, our testimony – at home, at work, at leisure.

2. WATCH YOUR DOCTRINE CLOSELY. (1Tim 4:16b)

Taking care of our character and conduct is not enough.

~ The way we conduct our lives will only be a reflection of our convictions, our philosophy in life and in ministry.

When our character and lifestyle match the biblical standard and when our doctrine is sound and strong and our convictions deep Paul tells us: v. 16c.


Iv how to go back to the ancient paths read jer 6 16

Taking care of our personal lives and our doctrine will inevitably affect our ministries.

I cannot overemphasize the fact that we as a church must commit to keep to the ancient paths.

~ This will have to begin with the leaders and the workers of the church.
