    1. 1. DEAR TIM, JESUS’ BIG MIRACLE… THE CHURCH! I Timothy 3:14-16
    2. 2. 1 Tim. 3:14-16 –The New Living Translation I am writing these things to you now, even though I hope to be with you soon, [15] so that if I can't come for a while, you will know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God. This is the church of the living God, which is the pillar and support of the truth.
    3. 3. 1 Tim. 3:14-16 –The New Living Translation [16] Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith: Christ appeared in the flesh and was shown to be righteous by the Spirit. He was seen by angels and was announced to the nations. He was believed on in the world and was taken up into heaven.
    4. 4. 1 Tim. 3:14-16 –The Message Translation I hope to visit you soon, but just in case I'm delayed, I'm writing this letter so [15] you'll know how things ought to go in God's household, this God-alive church, bastion of truth.
    5. 5. 1 Tim. 3:14-16 –The Message Translation [16] This Christian life is a great mystery, far exceeding our understanding, but some things are clear enough: He appeared in a human body, was proved right by the invisible Spirit, was seen by angels. He was proclaimed among all kinds of peoples, believed in all over the world, taken up into heavenly glory.
    6. 6. TAKE HOME • By Jesus all things hold together…life, the universe, the future, the church …everything! • Listen to Paul and you’ll hear it in a dozens of ways… For me to live is Christ! • The church finds her life, purpose and her future in Jesus. • The church is more than an organization …a marvelous, loving, living organism.
    7. 7. Lord, I want to give myself to you today. I will love your body (your church) and serve you with my life. Commitment:

    12. 12. • The Palestine of long ago • The Father’s right hand THERE IS A TENDENCY TO LOCALIZE JESUS TO…
    13. 13. PAUL’S VISION SAW JESUS PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE • The Alpha and Omega • The Beginning and the End • The Author and Finisher of our Faith
    14. 14. IT STANDS TO REASON: • He holds Creation together • His Story holds the Bible together…all roads lead to Him: The Pentateuch, Prophets, Psalms, Gospels and Epistles • He holds the Church together • His message binds Doctrine together • He holds Fellowship together
    15. 15. JESUS SUPPLIES WHAT WE NEED Pardon! God, for Christ’s sake has forgiven you. --Eph 4:32 Purpose! To live is Christ --Philippians 1:21 Power! I can do all things through Christ. --Philippians Plenty! All things are yours. Prospect! Where I am there you may be also
    16. 16. SO WE RECITE THE OLD HYMN, QUOTED BY PAUL: I Timothy 3:16 He appeared in a human body, was proved right by the invisible Spirit, was seen by angels. He was proclaimed among all kinds of peoples, believed in all over the world, taken up into heavenly glory.
    17. 17. COMMUNION This table is always open to every believer!

    24. 24. CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD • This Spirit is God’s Presence and the true construct of the Church • It is a relational experience with God and man through Jesus Christ • “ The pillar and foundation of the truth…”
    25. 25. CONDUCT IN GOD’S HOUSEHOLD • Cathedral v. Church ~ Organization v. Organism • Cathedral ~ Bound by brick and stone • Church ~ Bound only by the Holy Spirit of the Living God
