Hope by 10th Avenue song
All preaching must be done under the Holy Spirit. A burden to share the Love of God. The Holy Spirit is your teacher to give you the meat of the message.
What's the most important? To love the Lord your God with all your strength.
Preaching is the power
Teaching is the transmission
Are you defeated? The Power of the Holy Spirit is missing
Biblical Doctrine the Truth of God God's thoughts are not your thoughts
nor did we crave the praises of men, whether you or others. Even though we could have imposed upon you our demands as apostles of Christ, instead we showed you kindness and were gentle among you. We cared for you in the same way a nursing mother cares for her own children. With a mother's love and affectionate attachment to you, we were very happy to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our lives—because you had become so dear to us.
1 Thessalonians 2:6-8 TPT
Biblical Theology is applying God's Truth to life. It's the only truth there is.
1 Timothy 4
Jesus started baptizing and John said it's ok.
So until I come, be diligent in devouring the Word of God, be faithful in prayer, and in teaching the believers. Make all of this your constant meditation and make it real with your life so everyone can see that you are moving forward.
1 Timothy 4:13, 15 TPT
If I were to speak with eloquence in earth's many languages, and in the heavenly tongues of angels, yet I didn't express myself with love, my words would be reduced to the hollow sound of nothing more than a clanging cymbal. Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.
1 Corinthians 13:1, 13 TPT
Search the Scriptures for yourself.
It took 25 years to get the book of John translated into a new language.
God, do the work in me. In spite of rabbit trails.
Our world is broken.

Matthew 28:19-20 TPT
When they heard this they were crushed and realized what they had done to Jesus. Deeply moved, they said to Peter and the other apostles, "What do we need to do, brothers?" Peter replied, "Repent and return to God, and each one of you must be baptized in the name of Jesus, the Anointed One, to have your sins removed. Then you may take hold of the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:37-38 TPT
3000 people gave their lives to Jesus and were baptized. The baptism of the Holy Spirit saves us. Why do we have a tank? An outward sign of an inward change.
Just as the human body is one, though it has many parts that together form one body, so too is Christ. For by one Spirit we all were immersed and mingled into one single body. And no matter our status—whether we are Jews or non-Jews, oppressed or free—we are all privileged to drink deeply of the same Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 TPT
God designed communion to be an intimate a.ct with him and with one another.

Terrance Wiebe www.EasTview.orgWho is in charge? Jesus and the elders.
Elders appears 26 times in the New Testament. Elders lead together.
And now, a word to you who are elders in the churches. I, too, am an elder and a witness to the sufferings of Christ. And I, too, will share in his glory when he is revealed to the whole world. As a fellow elder, I appeal to you: Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. Don't Lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example. And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor. In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
1 Peter 5:1-5 NLT
Peter was the superstar of the Church but he called himself an elder. A fellow employee?
Accept that you bless others in humility.
Peter was not a shepherd but the shepherd theme is all over the NT.
David was a shepherd. Ps 23 the Lord is my shepherd. Sometimes he has to MAKE us lie down. Sometimes he has to make a quiet pool. Sometimes he has to pull the sheep back up when it falls.
Luke 15 the shepherd finds the lost sheep. 1 Samuel 17 David rescued sheep and killed the bear. Jesus reached into the mouth of death and saved us. Jesus wants us.
James 5 cover a multitude of sins
1 Timothy 3.1 want to be a leader.
John 10 the Good Shepherd lays down his life. He doesn't run away.
The methods of the corporate world can't be applied to the church. The elder is part of the flock.
John 13 Jesus washed feet even though he was Lord. Do as he did.

We connect with people who have fallen away from the gospel. How do we connect with the people who have no church background?
Acts 1 the resurrected Jesus hangs out with the disciples teaching them about the kingdom of God. 40 days intensive.
V6 stop asking about the kingdom of Israel.
The Holy Spirit will bring the dynamite into you. Wait for it. Become gaga for Jesus. A witness is not the lawyer but to share what they know.
Talking to people about what you are learning. Share.
Expert testimony comes from those who become experts on a subject. You can be an eye witness. That's a great question but here is what I know.
