January 11, 2015 - A Wedding

Sunday School
1 Peter 5 1-14
Encouraging and Shepherding God's People in the Midst of Suffering

  • If we believe, we will receive eternal life.
  • Pray unceasingly wherever you are.
  • Elders are to tend to their flock honorably not grudgingly.
  • God sets Himself against the proud but He shows favor to the humble.
  • v10 - Now the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will personally restore, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little.
  • Amen means "So Be It"
Philippians 3:13-14 - Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God's heavenly call in Christ Jesus.
Subject: Pressing Toward The Mark

  • We want to be like Jesus.
  • We have a goal toward the prize.
  • Goals prepare us for the prize that God has for us.
  • Meditate day and night.
  • Go into the vineyard too, and whatever is right I will give you. Matthew 20:4
  • We should have goals throughout our lives.

S = see your goal
U = understand that there are going to be obstacles.
C = create a positive mental picture.
C = crease our minds of self doubt.
E = embrace the challenge.
S = stay on track.
S = show the world that you can do it.

  • Set specific goals, have a time frame.

Benefits of Goal-setting.........

  1. keeps us from wasting time and energy
  2. produces focus and keeps us from distractions
  3. simplifies decision making processes
  4. delivers us from living in the past
  5. produces persistence and determination

  • Prayer can change a situation
  • Luke 18:1 - And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.
  • Isiah 41:10 - So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
