9-27-14 “Peace Gives Life To The Body” – Pastor Shane Idleman

 

COMPLETE SERMON NOTES

Peace Gives Life to the Body –

Message: I can’t force this – I can only share my heart – this message can’t be pushed into me or you – God must penetrate the heart.
• Its no secret that we’ve been praying for revival – but …

Love & Unity alway precede revival, change, and renewal
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.” Acts 2:1 – A Piano Example

Peace Gives Life to the Body – “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Proverbs 14:30

THE PROBLEM…My problem: 1 Corinthians 3:3 Amplified Bible (AMP) “For you are still [unspiritual, having the nature] of the flesh [under the control of ordinary impulses]. For as long as [there are] envying and jealousy and wrangling and factions among you, are you not unspiritual and of the flesh, behaving yourselves after a human standard and like mere (unchanged) men?”
How do we gauge the spiritual health of a church…How do we gauge the spiritual health of a Christian?

1. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35; NASB

2. “That they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.” John 17:21; NASB
There is power in unity because we take on the nature of Christ

3. “…by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.” Philippians 2:1-3; NASB

Colossians 3:14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

Ephesians 4:3

• NIV: Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
• NLT: Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. ESV: Eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. N ASB: Be diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
