Pastoral Epistles: PRIORITIZE! – Pastor David Schroeder

Focus, clarify, center, prioritize — this is what Martin Luther did as he studied Romans 1:17: For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith" (NIV).  Prioritizing the gospel sparked the Reformation five-hundred years ago this month. Prioritizing his life and ministry is also how Paul admonished Timothy in today’s text. Do not let personal convictions become your theology; 1 Timothy 4:1-6; Do not let your personal disciplines become your priority; 1Timothy 4:7-11; Do not let your age minimize your ministry; 1 Timothy 4:12-16; Be an example, Focus on the Scriptures, Use your spiritual gift

    Pastoral Epistles: Sola Ecclesia – Pastor David Schroeder

    What’s next? What’s the next huge tragedy to rock our country? Hurricanes and mass murders have taken center stage while terrorism and nuclear threat from rogue nations are lurking behind sheer curtains ready to destroy us. And every issue gets politicized to further divide and weaken our nation, which can’t even agree on how to honor our flag or national anthem.

    Meanwhile, followers of Jesus gather in small groups. They are the Church, the only eternal society on planet earth. Sola ecclesia — only the Church will survive, and that’s why we must observe our Master’s mandates for Church leadership. 1.The Creation Mandate; 2:11-15, 2. The Overseer Mandate; 3:1-7, 3. The Server Mandate; 3:8-13, 4. The Church Mandate; 3:14-16

    Pastoral Epistles: Why Would Anyone Want to be a Pastor? – Pastor David Schroeder
    For the next few months, we will learn from the Pastoral Epistles, 1&2 Timothy and Titus. These letters give us good insight into the priorities of a pastor, which should also help the church members know better how to function. Young, timid Timothy was left in Ephesus, the most pagan city of the New Testament era. (No wonder he had stomach problems and was told to drink wine!) Doctrinal and lifestyle deviance in the church challenged the young pastor, but the aged apostle’s humility set the right tone for effective ministry. Demand doctrinal purity, verses 3-7; Use the Law lawfully, verses 8-11; Remember grace and mercy, verses 12-17; Fight the good fight faithfully, verses 18-20

    Pselect Psalms: Psalm 23 – Our Shepherd Friend – Pastor David Schroeder
    Despite his somewhat inconsistent walk with God, David saw God to be his shepherd and his friend. No psalm better reveals the intimacy between God and those who choose to follow Him. Notice these wonderful blessings:

    God is personal to me (verses 1, 6); God is my provider (verses 2, 5); God is my protector (verses 3, 4).

    Pselect Psalms: Psalms Jesus Selected – Pastor David Schroeder
    Jesus was not officially a rabbi, but his disciples, many other people, and even a member of the Sanhedrin, Nicodemus, called him Rabbi, which means teacher. His mastery of the OT was phenomenal. In the Gospels 104 times (including parallels), he quoted OT scriptures from 19 different books. He quoted from eight Psalms, using them in different ways.  1. Declaring His identity: Psalm 8:2 / Matthew 21:16, Psalm 118:22, 23 / Matthew 21:42, Mark 12:40, Luke 20:17, and Psalm 110:1 / Matthew 22:44, Mark 12:36 and 14:62, Luke 20:42 and 22:69.  2. Prophetic fulfillment: Psalm 82:6 / John 10:34, Psalm 41:9 / John 13:18 and Psalm 69:4 / John 15:25. 3. Talking to His Father from the cross:  Psalm 22:1 / Mark 15:34 and Psalm 31:5 / Luke 23:46.

    Pselect Psalms: Psalm 133 – Dew Unity – Pastor Scott Wilson

    How good and pleasant it is  when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

    Pselect Psalms: Psalm 46 – Homeland Security? – Pastor David Schroeder

    Looking for security? National security? Social security? Computer security? Eternal security? In Maslow’s pyramid of human needs, after physiological needs, such as food, water, sleep, etc., SECURITY and safety needs are most important. We are an insecure species. Always have been, but maybe more today than ever. Threatened by uncontrollable nature, hostile nations, and God Himself, in vain we look for security through our own efforts. Psalm 46 assures us that God, and only God, can provide as we face: Cosmic upheaval; verses 1-3, National bullying; verses 4-7, and Divine judgment; verses 8-11.

    Pselect Psalms: Psalm 116 – Blessing God – Pastor David Schroeder

    Without any doubt, the #1 reason people stop believing in God is His failure to meet their expectations. People easily become disappointed in God because, frankly, He doesn't always do their will. The writer of Psalm 116 was faced with the terror of death (verses 3 and 6) and defeated it through prayer (verses 2 and 4) and gratitude (verses 12-19).
