Bro. Billy Compton — 02/03/19 — WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT HEAVEN?

February 10, 2019

WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT HEAVEN?

Luke 10:20

HEAVEN DESCRIBES OUR FUTURE.

  • Better Fellowship

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There

will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain,

for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev. 21:4).

  • Better Body

 

“Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits

of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our

adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies”

(Romans 8:23).

 

  • Better Home

 

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God;

believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms;

if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going

there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare

a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with

me that you also may be where I am” (John 14:1-3).

 

HEAVEN DEFINES OUR PRESENT.

  • Remove your doubts.

 

  • Replace your worries.

 

  • Refocus your priorities.

 

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living

hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the

dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil

or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you”

(I Peter 1:3-4).

 

We are glad you’re here!

As our guest, we want to welcome you and say “Thank You” for joining

Building Awesome Friendships

 

To provide  spiritual growth.

            spiritual gift to make you strong—that is that you

            and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s

            faith” (Romans 1:11-12 NIV).

 

To create  emotional support.

            “Carry each other’s burdens and in this way, you

            will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2 NIV).

            “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do

            good to all people, especially to those who belong

            to the family of believers” (Galatians 6:10 NIV).

 

To maintain  social enjoyment.

            “The Lord God said, ‘it is not good for the man to

be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’”

(Genesis 2:18 NIV).

 

To reach  your goals.

            “Two are better than one, because they have a good

           return for their labor: If they fall down, they can

            help each other up. … A cord of three strands

            is not easily broken” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10; 12b NIV).

            “So, in everything, do to others what you would have

            them do to you; for this sums up the law and the

            prophets” (Matthew 7:12 NIV).

LEARN AS A STUDENT OF GOD’S WAYS

                  “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord…

                  Word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (vs. 3).

  • Get exposed to God’s Word.
  • Remember knowledge is useful only when applied.

heart. Direct me in the path of your commands,

for there I find delight” (Ps. 119:33-35).

 

LET GO OF CONFLICT

                  “He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes

                  for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plow-

                  shares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will

                  not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for

                  war anymore” (vs. 4).

                  “Hold them in the highest regard in love because of

                  their work. Live in peace with each other” (I Thess. 5:13).

                  “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace

                  with everyone” (Rom. 12:18).

 

LIVE IN THE AWARENESS OF GOD’S PRESENCE

                  “Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of

                  the Lord” (vs. 5).

  • Affirm His presence each day.
  • Acknowledge the need to please God.

     LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH!

Bro. Billy Compton — 12/2/18 — Hope Rising — Romans 15:13

December 6, 2018

HOPE RISING

Romans 15:13

 

THE LESSONS FROM A PAST HOPE

            “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign:

            The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son,

            and will call him Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14).

            “And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing

           age, was enabled to bear children because she

            considered him faithful who had made the promise”

            (Hebrews 11:11).

THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF A PRESENT HOPE

            “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul,

            firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary

            behind the curtain…” (Hebrews 6:19).

 

THE PROMISE FOR A FUTURE HOPE

            “For in this hope we were saved. But hope that

            is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what

            they already have? But if we hope for what we

            do not yet have, we wait for it patiently”

            (Romans 8:24-25).

                

               Dear God, We thank you that during this Advent

            season we can unwrap your gift of hope. Help us

            remember and hold tightly to hope in our present

            realities while we wait with expectation for our

            hope to be fulfilled when Christ comes again. Amen.

Bro. Billy Compton — 11/25/18 — Break the Routine Barrier — 1 Cor 11:23-29

November 30, 2018

BREAKING THE ROUTINE BARRIER

I Corinthians 11:23-29

 

A TIME TO COMMERORATE

  • “For I received from the Lord what I also passed on

to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed,

took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke

it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this

in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after supper

he took the cup saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant

in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in

remembrance of me’” (I Cor. 11:23-25 NIV).

 

  • “Such a high priest meets our need—one who is holy,

blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above

the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he does not

need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own

sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed

for their sins once for all when he offered himself”

(Heb. 7:26-27 NIV).

 

A TIME TO PROCLAIM

  • “For when you eat this bread and drink this cup, you

proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes”

(I Cor. 11:26 NIV).

 

A TIME TO EXAMINE

  • “Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup

of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of

sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. A man

ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread

and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks

without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks

judgment on himself” (I Cor. 11:27-29 NIV).
