  9. 9. Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles;Sunday 13 March 2011

  12. 12. Wherever there is true love, there must be giving, and giving to the point of sacrifice. Love is not satisfied with giving trinkets; it must give at the cost of sacrifice: it must give blood, life, all. F B MeyerSunday 13 March 2011
  13. 13. Agape love is the greatest virtue of the Christian life.Yet that type of love was rare in pagan Greek literature. That’s because the traits agape portrays—unselfishness, self-giving, willful devotion, concern for the welfare of others —were mostly disdained in ancient Greek culture as signs of weakness. John MacArthurSunday 13 March 2011
  14. 14. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.Sunday 13 March 2011

  16. 16. The reality is that Christ trumps everything. All scripture testifies of him. The Father exults him. The Spirit magnifies him. The angels worship him. The early church knew him as her passion, her message, and the unction of her life. Christ was her speciality. He was her bridegroom and head. She specialised in nothing else. The Jesus ManifestoSunday 13 March 2011

  23. 23. “The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. In Roman times, the man who took up his cross and started down the road was not coming back. He was not going out to have his life re-directed. He was going out to have it ended.” A.W. TozerSunday 13 March 2011
  24. 24. Revelation 2:5-6 But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. A Reminder Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.Sunday 13 March 2011
  25. 25. Revelation 2:5-6 But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first.

  30. 30. The 4 Gospels contain over 300 questions asked by Jesus DialogueSunday 13 March 2011
  31. 31. "This Christ, so glorious in person and perfect in work—the incarnate God— the bleeding peacemaker— the imperial governor of the universe—it is He, none else, and none besides Him, whom we preach. Not simply His doctrine, but Himself; This Christ is the one and undivided object of proclamation...Sunday 13 March 2011
  32. 32. “The one theme was Christ—“Him first, Him last, Him midst.” Christ, as the one deliverer, conferring pardon by His blood, purity by His Spirit, and perfection by His pledge and presence, securing defence by His power, comfort by His sympathy, and the hope of glory by His residence in the believing heart; this Christ, as the only source of such multifarious gifts, we preach, and we preach with special tenderness and anxiety.” John EadieSunday 13 March 2011
  33. 33. Sunday 13 March 2011
  34. 34. Sunday 13 March 2011
  35. 35. G. Campbell Morgan kept a newspaper clipping for twenty years, entitled "Sheer Hard Work," and said: What is true of the minister is true of every man who bears the name of Christ. We have not begun to touch the great business of salvation when we have sung, "Rescue the perishing, care for the dying." We have not entered into the business of evangelizing the city or the world until we have put our own lives into the business, our own immediate physical endeavor, inspired by spiritual devotion. G. Campbell Morgan, The Westminster Pulpit, Volumes 3, 4 (Old Tappan, NJ: Revell, n.d.), p. 160. R Kent HughesSunday 13 March 2011
  36. 36. “... if we Christians would live our Christian lives and serve the Lord Jesus with the intensity of purpose and effort that is put forth in a football contest, what God- glorifying lives we would live." Eerdmans Bible EncyclopediaSunday 13 March 2011
  37. 37. Sunday 13 March 2011
  38. 38. Spiritual maturity was the great purpose of the apostles ministries. It lay at the nerve center of apostolic, New Testament Christianity.Sunday 13 March 2011
  39. 39. Disciple-makers are not out to change people; they are out to grow them. The gardener does not try by the force of his will to make peas into roses. He merely cultivates the ground in which peas are planted, freeing them to become what God meant them to be."Sunday 13 March 2011
  40. 40. "People sometimes tell me that I work too hard. But compared to Paul, I am not working hard enough. It saddens me to hear of pastors or seminary students who are looking for an easy pastorate...No one can successfully serve Jesus Christ without working hard. Lazy pastors, Christian leaders, or laymen will never fulfill the ministry the Lord has called them to. Striving...refers to competing in an athletic event. Our English word agonize is derived from it. Success in serving the Lord, like success in sports, demands maximum effort." John MacArthurSunday 13 March 2011
  41. 41. “In such a work it is a privilege to exhaust our strength; in the performance of the duties of such an office, it is an honour to be permitted to wear out life itself.” BarnesSunday 13 March 2011
  42. 42. Luther worked so hard that many days, according to his biographers, he fell into bed. Moodys bedtime prayer on one occasion, as he rolled his bulk into bed, was, "Lord, Im tired! Amen." John Wesley rode sixty to seventy miles many days of his life and preached an average of three sermons a day, whether he was riding or not. R Kent HughesSunday 13 March 2011
  43. 43. Jesus the centre of our livesSunday 13 March 2011
  44. 44. Jesus the centre of our livesSunday 13 March 2011
  45. 45. Jesus the circumference of our lives Jesus the centre of our livesSunday 13 March 2011
  46. 46. Jesus the circumference of our lives Jesus the centre of our livesSunday 13 March 2011
  47. 47. Jesus the circumference of our lives Jesus the centre of our lives Fill in all the space in betweenSunday 13 March 2011
