Grace Fellowship
Memory Verse

Gal 5:16, “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.”


Five Principles:Vs. 16, 1) The servant must have Authority OrientationVs. 17, 2) Knowledge and application of Bible Doctrine results in HappinessVs. 18, 3) God's Omniscience does not violate our human volitionVs. 19, 4) Bible doctrine prepares the believer for shocking behavior, such as betrayalVs. 20, 5) Humility perpetuates Bible Doctrine


Even after our Lord’s ascension, verbal face-to-face teaching will continue. Every generation will have the opportunity to receive the Word of God.

"He who receives" Sets up the authority for Bible teachers and authority orientation for the hearer of Bible teaching.

The Bible Teacher must be received if you are going to learn Bible doctrine. You can never learn doctrine from anyone whose authority you reject.


Comparing vs. 16 and 20, both the teacher and the listener must have humility and authority orientation in order for God's Word to be perpetuated.

"I send" Today our Lord is seated at the right hand of the Father and He sends P/T’s for the purpose of communicating Bible doctrine.
"Receives Me" Receiving or accepting the authority of your Pastor-teacher is the same as receiving Jesus Christ.
"And he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me". Ultimately God the Father is the Sender, Commissioner, Appointer or Dispatcher.

If you receive via humility and authority orientation, your right Pastor-Teacher; you have accepted the Plan of God the Father for your life.

It is through your right Pastor-Teacher that you receive the correct instructions for your spiritual life.
mat 10 40 he who receives you receives me and he who receives me receives him who sent me
Mat 10:40,“He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”

Anyone who accepts the Pastor-Teacher accepts Jesus, the one they represent, and in turn they are accepting the Father - God's Plan for your life.


You cannot do dishonor to one of the institutions, (the church and/or Pastor-Teacher), without dishonoring all, (your fellow congregants, the Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father).


Luke 10:16, “The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me." See also John 12:44-49.


Gal 4:14, “And that which was a trial to you in my bodily condition you did not despise or loathe, but you received me as an angel (messenger) of God, as Christ Jesus Himself.”

1 thes 4 8 so he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the god who gives his holy spirit to you
1 Thes 4:8,“So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.”

Luke 9:48,“And said to them, “Whoever receives this child (a member of the congregation) in My name receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me; for the one who is least among all of you, this is the one who is great.” Also in Mark 9:37.


Phil 3:15, “Let us therefore, as many as are mature, have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you.”
