THE SHEEP’S RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE GREAT SHEPHERD.

    • GOD’S FLOCK WILL BE SPIRITUALLY HEALTHY, IF IT’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE GREAT SHEPHERD IS “FLAWLESS!!”
    • BOTTOM-LINE: WE MUST OBEY THE FOLLOWING THREE EXHORTATIONS, EVEN WHEN TRIALS AND TROUBLES COME INTO OUR EVERYDAY LIVES.

“REJOICEALWAYS. “ (5:16)

“PRAYWITHOUT CEASING. “ (5:17)

“GIVE THANKS IN EVERYTHING. “ (5:18)

  • PAUL’S STATEMENT “FOR THIS IS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU IN CHRIST JESUS.“ APPLIES TO ALL THREE COMMANDS & GOD MAKES IT POSSIBLE:

“FOR IT IS GOD WHO WORKS IN YOU, BOTH TO WILL AND TO DO OF HIS GOOD PLEASURE. . “ (PHIL.2:13)

THE EXHORTATION TO CONSTANT JOYFULNESS.

“REJOICE ALWAYS. “ (5:16)

  • THE EXHORTATION TO CONSTANT PRAYERFULNESS .

“PRAY WITHOUT CEASING;“ (5:17)

“THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH. “ (JAS. 5:16)

              • JESUS FAITHFULLY PRAYED DURING HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY.
              • JESUS PRAYED WITH INTENSITY.
              • FROM THE BEGINNING, THE EARLY CHURCH PRAYED WITH EARNESTNESS AND CONSTANCY.

WHAT SHOULD OUR MOTIVATIONS BE FOR “PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING?”

    • OUR HIGHEST MOTIVATION – TO GLORIFY GOD.

“PRAY, THEN, IN THIS WAY: ‘ OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME. THY KINGDOM COME. THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.’ “ (MATT. 6:9-10)

    • OUR DESIRE FOR FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD.

“AS THE DEER PANTS FOR THE WATER BROOKS, SO MY SOUL PANTS FOR YOU, O GOD. MY SOUL THIRSTS FOR GOD, FOR THE LIVING GOD, WHEN SHALL I COME AND APPEAR BEFORE GOD? “ (PS. 42:1-2)

slide5

FOR GOD TO MEET OUR NEEDS.

“GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD.“ (MATT. 6:11)

“AND THIS IS THE CONFIDENCE THAT WE HAVE TOWARD HIM, THAT IF WE ASK ANYTHING ACCORDING TO HIS WILL HE HEARS US. AND IF WE KNOW THAT HE HEARS US IN WHATEVER WE ASK, WE KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE REQUESTS THAT WE HAVE ASKED OF HIM. “ (1 JN 5:14-15)

  • FOR GOD’S WISDOM.

“IF ANY OF YOU LACKS WISDOM, LET HIM ASK GOD, WHO GIVES GENEROUSLY TO ALL WITHOUT REPROACH, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN HIM. “ (JAS. 1:5)

  • FOR DELIVERANCE FROM TROUBLE.

“THEN JONAH PRAYED TO THE LORD HIS GOD FROM THE BELLY OF THE FISH, SAYING, "I CALLED OUT TO THE LORD, OUT OF MY DISTRESS, AND HE ANSWERED ME; OUT OF THE BELLY OF SHEOL I CRIED, AND YOU HEARD MY VOICE.”(JONAH 2:1-2)

slide6

RELIEF FROM FEAR AND WORRY.

“(THE LORD IS NEAR) DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION WITH THANKSGIVING LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN TO GOD. AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS IN CHRIST JESUS. “ (PHIL. 4:6-7)

  • GRATITUDE FOR PAST BLESSINGS.

“I THANK MY GOD IN ALL MY REMEMBRANCE OF YOU,

ALWAYS IN EVERY PRAYER OF MINE FOR YOU ALL MAKING MY PRAYER WITH JOY, BECAUSE OF YOUR PARTNERSHIP IN THE GOSPEL FROM THE FIRST DAY UNTIL NOW. “

(PHIL. 1:3-5)

  • FREEDOM FROM THE GUILT OF SIN.

“I ACKNOWLEDGED MY SIN TO YOU, AND I DID NOT COVER MY INIQUITY; I SAID, "I WILL CONFESS MY TRANSGRESSIONS TO THE LORD," AND YOU FORGAVE THE INIQUITY OF MY SIN.” (PS. 32:5)

slide7

FOR SALVATION OF THE LOST.

“FIRST OF ALL, THEN, I URGE THAT SUPPLICATIONS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSIONS, AND THANKSGIVINGS BE MADE FOR ALL PEOPLE, FOR KINGS AND ALL WHO ARE IN HIGH POSITIONS, THAT WE MAY LEAD A PEACEFUL AND QUIET LIFE, GODLY AND DIGNIFIED IN EVERY WAY.

THIS IS GOOD, AND IT IS PLEASING IN THE SIGHT OF GOD OUR SAVIOR, WHO DESIRES ALL PEOPLE TO BE SAVED AND TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. “

(1 TIM. 2:1-4)

“THEN HE SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, "THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL, BUT THE LABORERS ARE FEW; THEREFORE PRAY EARNESTLY TO THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND OUT LABORERS INTO HIS HARVEST.“ (MATT. 9:37-38)

“BROTHERS, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR THEM IS THAT THEY MAY BE SAVED. “ (ROM. 10:1)

  • DESIRE FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH.

“FOR THIS CAUSE I BOW MY KNEES UNTO YOU THE FATHER, OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, OF WHOM THE WHOLE FAMILY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH IS NAMED,

(EPH. 3:14-21)
