TODAY’S STUDY

Romans Chapter 1-

Christ Establishes Local Churches to Proclaim Our Faith

 
Romans, Chapter 1, 
Verses 8 to 15
Paul’s Prayer for the Purpose of his Ministry 
 
First, I, Paul, thank God the Father in prayer through Jesus Christ’s name for all you believers in Rome, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world…throughout the entire Roman Empire 
 
FAITH
A mental power given to each person at physical birth as a gift from a gracious God, which through freedom of choice, allows you to place your absolute confidence in a person, a place, or a thing…an active power which, when placed in God, offers an uncompromising inner assurance that things not seen will occur, and that things which seem impossible, can be accomplished.
 
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that (faith is) not of yourselves, it is the gift of God…
 
…walk by faith, not by sight — 
 
…in (the gospel message) the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”
 
UNBELIEF
An incapacitating, paralyzing and enslaving mental power offered to all mankind by the kingdom of darkness, and chosen by some as a lifestyle, designed to steal our salvation, to kill our faith, to destroy our hope, to turn our love cold, and to keep our lives in constant crisis.
 
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in(dwelling) me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me (unconditionally) and gave Himself up for me.
 
“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the (wine)skins and it (the wine) will be spilled out, and the skins will be ruined.//But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.”
 
BARAH MINISTRIES’ PURPOSE
 
To evangelize to unbelievers, providing the accurate Gospel Message, the Good News about Jesus Christ’s Person and His salvation work at the Cross.
To teach the Word of God regularly to believers in Christ from the pulpit of a local church.
To conduct missionary activity, raising Pastors and independent self sustaining churches throughout the world as God provides the opportunity.
 
GOD ESTABLISHES LOCAL CHURCHES 
 
God places a church in a specific location
God brings people to populate the church who have complementary  spiritual gifts. 
People use their spiritual gifts to benefit the body of Christ…the local church and the universal church.
When people use their spiritual gift to do God’s work, it’s called a  ministry… it’s called “the work of service”
 
GOD ESTABLISHES LOCAL CHURCHES 
 
At the proper time, God sends some people out from a local church to establish independent churches in new locations 
We will encounter opposition as we use our spiritual gifts…opposition from within and opposition from without.
When we encounter opposition we remember that “greater is He who is indwelling us than he who is in the world.”
 
(
 
Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He (the Lord Jesus Christ) was asking His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”
 
And they said, “Some say (you are) John the Baptist; and others (say you are) Elijah; but still others (say you are) Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”
 
He (the Lord Jesus Christ) said to them (the disciples), “But who do you say that I am?”
 
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ (the Messiah), the Son of the living God.”
 
And (the Lord) Jesus (Christ) said to him (Peter), “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona (Simon, son of Jonas), because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven (revealed this to you).”
 
“I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades (my own physical death) will not overpower it (this universal church).”
 
 
“I will give you the keys (the authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth (from My instructions) shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth (from My instructions) shall have been loosed in heaven.”
 
 
 
 
Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ (the Messiah).
 
 
“I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades (my own physical death) will not overpower it (this universal church).”
 
For in Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,//and in Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) you have been made complete (pleroo), and He is the head over all rule and authority…
 
MINISTRY
A calling, given to you by God, and centered in service to the Lord Jesus Christ, in which you use your spiritual gift as you choose in service to others
 
And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers…
 
…for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ…
 
…until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
 
‘He who has an ear, let him hear what (God) the (Holy) Spirit says to the churches.’
 
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
What service does God want to come from this church?
 
CLOSING SONG
For Such a Time as This 
 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.//In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
 
The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed
 
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.
 
CLOSING PRAYER
Let us pray…
 
 
Thanks for watching!
Thanks for listening!
