Summary

Jessica Hiatt summarized the sermon as, “How can you be a Christian without the Word of God? Every fire needs its fuel!”

LOVE ONE ANOTHER WITH BROTHERLY AFFECTION
DO NOT BE SLOTHFUL IN ZEAL
BE FERVENT IN SPIRIT
SERVE THE LORD
BE PATIENT IN TRIBULATION
BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER

Romans 12:10-21
Rom 12:10 … Love one another with brotherly affection.

You are commanded to Love!

Matthew 22:37-39
Matthew 24:12

What is love?
What is brotherly love?
You tell a brother when they are messing up.
Forgiveness comes easier
Blood is thicker than water
Family ties are stronger
What about the blood of Christ?

Rom 12:10 …Outdo one another in showing honor.

Set the example
Go before one another
Submit to one another
Ephesians 5:21 ESV submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Romans 12:11 ESV Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.

Slothful – Means slow, lazy…

Exodus 20:9-10
Manna – 6 days gather; do not keep any overnight – WORMS
7th Day you could keep it overnight

Revelation 3:16

SERVE THE LORD

Serve – means to be a slave
Acts 20:19
Golden Calf – Idle – Work
Spirit was given for them to work for the LORD
Ask yourself, what am I doing with the gifts the Spirit has given me?

Matthew 25:25-28

How much trouble can you get into when you are working?
How much better, to spend idle time working for the LORD?

BE FERVENT IN SPIRIT
Passion and Intensity
To boil, To stir up, To fan the flames
Shake the wood
Rake the coals
Remove the ash
Positive – Fan the flames

2 Timothy 1:6-7

Spirit – POWER, LOVE, and SELF-CONTROL
FALSE Revival – You don’t provide the fire – God
WORD – Fuel/Wood, PRAYER – Oxygen Heat/Flame-GOD

Negative – 1 Thessalonians 5:19 ESV (19) Do not quench the Spirit.

Romans 12:12 ESV Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Hope in what? This world? NO!!!
If your joy is in this world, Martyn Lloyd Jones “ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?”
Jesus – World? Know your scripture – READING PLAN

Joh 14:17
Joh 15:18
Joh 16:33

BE PATIENT IN TRIBULATION
All types of tribulation and all types of trails
The servant is not greater than his master

Luke 6:26
TRUTH – The world is perishing – going to get worse – Revelation
TRUTH – You will face trials and tribulations – Make you stronger
TRUTH – Christ has overcome the world
TRUTH- He saved the wretch like me!

1. Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.
2. ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.
3. Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
LOVE ONE ANOTHER WITH BROTHERLY AFFECTION
DO NOT BE SLOTHFUL IN ZEAL
BE FERVENT IN SPIRIT
SERVE THE LORD.
BE PATIENT IN TRIBULATION
BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER
