How God’s Guidance Comes to Us- Sermon Notes

October 11, 2020

“How God’s Guidance Comes to Us”

Acts 16:6-10

 
 
There is no principle more important than the principle of being able to be guided.
 
Guidable people always receive guidance from God.
 
“6 They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia; they had been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. 7 When they came to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them. 8 Passing by Mysia they went down to Troas. 9 During the night Paul had a vision in which a Macedonian man was standing and pleading with him, “Cross over to Macedonia and help us!” 10 After he had seen the vision, we immediately made efforts to set out for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them” (Acts 16:6-10, CSB).
 
1. God’s guidance comes through obedience in the ordinary (v. 6).
Paul and his companions “went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia; they had been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia” (Acts 16:6, CSB).
 
2. God’s guidance comes through suddenly changing circumstances (vv. 6-7).
 
“A person’s heart plans his way, but the LORD determines his steps” (Prov. 16:9, CSB).
 
What we call circumstances is really the sovereign hand of God in our lives.
 
3. God’s guidance may come through supernatural events (v. 9).
During the night Paul had a vision in which a Macedonian man was standing and pleading with him, “Cross over to Macedonia and help us!” (Acts 16:9, CSB)
 
4. God’s guidance comes through wise counsel joined with common sense (v. 10).
“After he (Paul) had seen the vision, we immediately made efforts to set out for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them”
(Acts 16:10, CSB).

“How Christians Should Vote” Sermon Notes

“How Christians Should Vote”

Matthew 5:13; Romans 13:1-7; 1 Timothy 2:1-4
 
 
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet” (Matt. 5:13, CSB).
 
As citizens of God’s kingdom, we should select leaders who will govern a nation according to God’s principles.
 
“Let everyone submit to the governing authorities, since there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are instituted by God. 2 So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God’s command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Do you want to be unafraid of the one in authority? Do what is good, and you will have its approval. 4 For it is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, because it does not carry the sword for no reason. For it is God’s servant, an avenger that brings wrath on the one who does wrong. 5 Therefore, you must submit, not only because of wrath but also because of your conscience. 6 And for this reason you pay taxes, since the authorities are God’s servants, continually attending to these tasks. 7 Pay your obligations to everyone: taxes to those you owe taxes, tolls to those you owe tolls, respect to those you owe respect, and honor to those you owe honor” (Rom. 13:1-7, CSB).
 
1. GOVERNMENT IS A DIVINE INSTITUTION
“The governing authorities that exist are instituted by God” (Rom. 13:1, CSB).
 
2. GOD IS SOVEREIGN OVER THE GOVERNMENTS HE CREATES
Ps. 22:28 says, “Kingship belongs to the Lord; He rules the nations” (CSB).
“The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all” (Ps. 103:19, CSB).
“The Most High is ruler over human kingdoms” (Dan. 4:17) and “Heaven rules” (Dan. 4:26).

Living a Wholly Holy Life- Sermon Notes

“Living a Wholly Holy Life”

1 Thessalonians 5:23-25, CSB

 
The church is a community that seeks to become wholly holy.
 
“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely. And may your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will do it. Brothers and sisters pray for us also” (1 Thess. 5:23-25, CSB).
 
To be sanctified means to be holy or set apart from this evil world for God.
Sanctification is everything God does in us to make sure we turn out like Jesus in the end.
 
1. Holiness comes from the God of peace Himself (v. 23).
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. And may your whole spirit, soul, and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
 
2. Holiness encompasses the entire person: spirit, soul, and body (v. 23).
 
“Flee sexual immorality! Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, who you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So, glorify God with your body” (1 Cor. 6:18-20, CSB).
 
“So, I do not run like one who runs aimlessly or box like one beating the air. Instead, I discipline my body and bring it under strict control, so that after preaching to others, I myself will not be disqualified” (1 Cor. 9:26-27, CSB).
 
3. Holiness has a Godward focus in view of Christ’s coming (vv. 23b-24).
“May you…be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; He will do it.”
 
· Holiness means to be without blame before the Lord and others.
 
· Holiness is motivated by the fact that Christ is coming to reward His people and to judge the wicked.
 
· Holiness relies on God’s calling, faithfulness, and His strength (v. 24).
“He who calls you is faithful; He will do it.”
 
4. Holiness grows in a loving community where believers pray for one another (v. 25).
“Brothers and sisters, pray for us also.”

9-20- Sermon Notes

“Rightly Responding to the Guidance God Gives You”

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22

 

“Don’t stifle the Spirit. Don’t despise prophecies but test all things. Hold on to what is good. Stay away from every kind of evil” (1 Thess. 5:19-22, CSB).

 

  1. Do not douse the Spirit’s fire (v. 19).

“Don’t stifle the Spirit” (CSB).

“Stop quenching the Spirit” (Greek construction).

“Do not put out the Spirit’s fire” (NIV).

 

  1. Do not despise the Scripture’s wisdom (v. 20).

“Don’t despise prophecies” (1 Thess. 5:20, CSB).

 

“And he himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-12, CSB).

 

 

“Pursue love and desire spiritual gifts, and especially that you may prophesy. For the person who speaks in a tongue is not speaking to people but to God, since no one understands him; he speaks mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, the person who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouragement, and consolation. The person who speaks in a tongue builds himself up, but the one who prophesies builds up the church” (1 Cor. 14:1-4, CSB).

 

 

“Test all things. Hold to what is good” (v. 21).

 

 

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming; even now it is already in the world” (1 John 4:1-3, CSB).

 

 

“There were indeed false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved ways, and the way of truth will be maligned because of them. They will exploit you in their greed with made-up stories. Their condemnation, pronounced long ago, is not idle, and their destruction does not sleep”

(2 Peter 2:1-3, CSB).

 

  1. Do not dishonor the Savior’s holiness (v. 22).

“Stay away from every kind of evil” (1 Thess. 5:22, CSB).

 

“Do not be deceived. Bad company corrupts good morals” (1 Cor. 15:33, CSB).
