Finding fruit in a world full of nuts
rooted
 
The Point: It can be hard for the Christian to walk by faith in a world that has completely denounced all belief in Christ and His work. We're still called to bear the spiritual fruit in the gospel of Jesus, regardless the cost.
 
We find three specific things in this passage:
I. We find truth.
II. We find power.
III. We find grace.

    Numbers 21:4-9
     
    The point: We love to say that we have it all together, but that's not what God wants from us. For us, we worship God in moments when we can say, " I don't have it all together."
     
    I. Man's way.
    II. God's way.

    Strike the match
    cityonahill_001
     
    The Point: Say what you want about the media or the increasingly immoral worldviews, it is those INSIDE the church that too often drive away those OUTSIDE the church. We must strike the match of the gospel, light the lamp, and place it on the lamp stand that is anchored in Christ.
     
    I. Our presence is most effective when it is felt, not seen.
    II. Our reward should be given by God Himself, not by men.

    Anger:The Cold, Wet Blanket
    cityonahill_001
    Matthew 5:21-26
     
    The Point: Festering anger in a church saps the Body's ability to effectively do ministry in a community.  Most unchurched/dechurched people will grab a popcorn to watch the fight and forget all about the love and grace of Jesus.
     
    I. Anger hurts you.
    II. Anger hurts others.
    III. Anger doesn't begin as anger.

    May FBC Russellville be increasingly becoming:
    1. More captivated by the immeasurable worth of Jesus. 2 Cor, 3:16-18, 4:3-4,6

    3. More compelled by the love of Christ. 2 Cor. 5:14
    4. More committed to His mission. 2 Cor. 5:17-20

    Asking the right questions
    cityonahill_001
    The Point: To be that "City on A Hill" that Jesus speaks, we must ask the right questions, not only of scripture, but also of ourselves.
     
    1. Why does Jesus use saltiness to reference righteousness.
    2. How should Jesus, being the light of the world, affect how the church views the rest of the World.

    Matthew 5:14-6, Luke Chapter 7 and 15
     
    The point: God's interest in saving is not relegated to the totally lost or totally irreligious. God saves inside the church walls too.
     
    1. God pursues the indifferent. Luke 7
    2. God pursues the insiders. Luke 15

    Remain
    remainimage
    The Point: When a Christian practices what the Bible teaches, that becomes the proof of a life of changed by the Gospel.
     
    This passage shows us three things that remain with us through life's ups and downs, as a result of trusting Christ....
    1. The promise of eternal life.
    2. The presence of the Holy Spirit.
    3. The power of a Holy God.
