Likeminded

  1. 1. Message for January 30, 2011<br />Evening Service<br />On Being Likeminded<br />
  2. 2. Phil 2:20-21<br />For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.<br /> For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.<br />
  3. 3. Introduction<br />The nature of God’s work is vastly different with that of any organization, but nevertheless, it consists of men.<br />The New Testament Church is an organized assembly of born-again, scripturally baptized people in a given locality, having a covenant of faith with God and with one another, and ready to carry out the spirit and letter of the Great Commission given in Matthew 28:18-20.<br />
  4. 4. Notice that though born-again, yet men. Also these men have a covenant of faith with God and with one another carry out….<br />The word covenant gives us an idea as to what sort of men they should be. If we are to have staff people, they ought to be men who are in the mindset of being part of a covenant. Therefore, we need men who are likeminded.<br />
  5. 5. Phil 2:20-21<br />For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.<br /> For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.<br />
  6. 6. What it means to be likeminded<br /> It is having the mind of the leader. But what is the mind of the leader? The leader must not be seeking for his own glory but that of Christ’s.<br />The leader is a man. He is part of the men who comprise the NTC. But he is a leader.<br />
  7. 7. Rom 12:16<br />Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.<br />
  8. 8. What it means to be likeminded<br />It is a collegial spirit. We are part of one another. No one should be on his own. <br />A collegial spirit of trying to reach others <br />
  9. 9. Phil 1:27<br />Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;<br />
  10. 10. What it means to be likeminded<br />It is now having it as our lifestyle. One that is never forced nor one that is a life of pretention. It has now become our life. <br />
  11. 11. Phil 2:2<br />Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.<br />
  12. 12. What it means to be likeminded<br />Then it becomes our joy in life. Not only lifestyle but a source of joy, love, and unity among ourselves.<br />
  13. 13. End<br />
