You can not join a church-

you already are the church

You all are the body of Christ

but be filled with the Spirit, 

19speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21 and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

the model of the church
The Model of the Church
  • Model is not specified in Scripture
  • Models respond to needs and circumstances
  • Models are ok but they are not to define us
  • The HS will define us, and he is not limited by a certain model
  • Models will change. We do not like change but need change
  • Development of a model is not by imitation
  • The model simply needs to support the function
ephesians 4 11 13
Ephesians 4:11-13

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?

To be Perfect…

We don’t perfect ourselves!!

Pattern of God giving himself

James 2:2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Hebrews 13:20-21

20 Now the God of peace, who brought again from the dead, the great shepherd of the sheep, with the blood of an eternal covenant, even our Lord Jesus,

21 make you perfect (equip you ) in every good thing to do his will,

working in us that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

To be Perfect…

Perfection, apart from ourselves (God) is what makes us different from the world. They don’t have a standard to aim for. They are without hope.

This GRACE is also

a GIFT

Eph4:7 But each one of us has received a gift of grace, just as Christ wanted us to have it. 

GRACE

  • Christianity is defined not by what we do, but by what God has done.
  • Grace by definition is an act of giving. It is God’s nature to give.
  • Grace gives in a measure that is unmerited, unearned and undeserved and free because it is its character to give
  • Grace is the act of self-giving; self-donation (John 3:16, John 7-Living Water)
your gift your grace
Your Gift = Your Grace

GIFTS are for GIVING

1 Peter 4:10

"As every man has received the gift, even so minister the same, one to another as good stewards of the multicolored grace of God."

Ephesians 3:8

"To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this gracewas given…To preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.”

slide24
2 Timothy 1:6

"Hence I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you" (2 Timothy. 1:6)

Gifts are for giving

  • The Ministry of Spiritual Gifts
  • fellowship,
  • sharing,
  • praying for one another,
  • serving one another,
  • ministering to one another,
  • restoring one another,
  • confessing to one another,
  • forgiving one another,
  • admonishing one another,
  • praying for one another,

how great is our gift
How Great is our Gift?!

Eph 4:13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God

Eph 4:7 But each one of us has received a gift of grace, just as Christ wanted us to have it. 

8 That is why Scripture says,    "When he went up to his place on high,       he led a line of prisoners.       He gave gifts to people." —(Psalm 68:18)

9 What does "he went up" mean? It can only mean that he also came down to the lower, earthly places. 10 The One who came down is the same as the One who went up higher than all the heavens. He did it in order to fill all of creation.
