NOVEMBER 26, 2017 - BE A PARTNER IN THE TIMES LIKE THIS . . . II

Philippians 1:1-6

Text v. 5

 

"For you have been my PARTNERS in spreading the Good News

about Christ from the time you first heard it until now"

Introduction:

Guess you are now familiar with what goes on on the fields.

Remember: Every sincere believer is a Missionary

Every non-Christian in a Mission-field

Which one are you?

The common axiom today in Missions is PARTNERSHIP

That is, every Christian has a role to play for the Gospel to spread

If this fails, the repercussion is not funny, as the case now in Nigeria

The Basic Principle: I Cor 3: 9-10

Definition: Collaboration, Togetherness, Synergy, Each doing his in

the whole, etc

That is also shared by Paul with the Roman Church ( Rm 12:5-8

Each christian has a ministry as well as a role to play

Note v. 8 "with cheerfulness"

Remember, "God loves a cheerful giver", also cheerful worker too.

Furthermore:

Acts 16:14-15 Read

Note the words, "if you have judged me faithful, come into my house"

Then, the Philippian Church:

l. Paul and the Philippians

Preached Gospel to them

They responded positively

Became his partners thereafter for other places

That aided Paul very much

Always glad about their remembrance, hence his prayers for them

Paul's Recognition and Wish :read Vs 7-I1

2. The Philippians' Ministry of Partnership

Read 4: 10ff

They were there for him always

He recognized their involvement and generosity

He appreciated them, then prayed for therm

3. Our Call Today

This is International Mission Week

We talk about our Mission works outside the shore of Nigeria

Implication: We do Missions there in dollars

All of us are called to be part of what God is doing in those places.

4. Practical Things To Do:

Hope you studied the booklet you collected?

You are familiar with what we are doing in:

The Republic of Togo

The Republic of Mali, Chad, Cote D'Ivoire, Benin, and the UK

What is you own response?

Determine what you think is appropriate for you to do and/or give in

artnership for Missions

Reminder: those of us who were here on Wednesday.

We pull our resources together to the GMB of the NBC

May God and our Convention depend on you and me to see others out

there come to the saving Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

 

PRAY NOW, LATER GIVE
