Vessels Of Honor – Sunday Morning Bible Study
October 16 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 amFree
2 Tim 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. NKJV
2 Tim 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. NKJV
If we read the passages above in context we see Paul is instructing Timothy to watch out for false teachers. He is admonishing him to pay attention to the Scriptures and to make sure what he is believing and what he is teaching is founded on Scripture. Doing this causes Christians to purge themselves of the world and lies of the enemy. This process causes us to develop into vessels that are, “sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”
Here at Faith Family Church, we are committed to helping believers develop into disciples. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 that we were to make disciples of all nations. God has designed that every believer grows to the place where they are a vessel for honor.
All are welcome, so make plans to join us every Sunday morning at 9 am for this powerful Bible study. You will be ministered to by different teachers in the church from various topics in the Scriptures.
*For all of those serving in our main Sunday morning service please make plans to join us for Bible study before you serve.
*There Is No Child Care During This Service
This month Heidi McFarlane will be teaching on “A Call To Discipleship”
As stated by Oswald Sanders…”The word ‘disciple’ means ‘a learner’, but Jesus infused into that simple word a wealth of profound meaning. As used by Him and Paul, it meant ‘a learner or pupil who accepts the teaching of Christ, not only in belief, but also in lifestyle.’ It means learning with purpose to obey what is learned. It involves a deliberate choice, a definite denial, and a determined obedience.”
In this series we will find that Jesus calls us to ‘go and make disciples’ in Matthew 28:19, but He also lays out clearly that to be a true disciple there will be a cost, Matthew 16:24-25. To make disciples we must be a disciple! The cost is to deny ourselves and take up our cross which means to lay down our own natural wills, say no to self daily, and follow His will and conform to it. We will walk through the different characteristics of what it means to be a disciple. It does cost our flesh, but the reward of sowing to the Spirit is abundant life! When surrendered completely to Him we are sure to live ‘The Good Life’ in Him and lead people to that ‘Good Life’!
