- “WHERE IS YOUR CITIZENSHIP?”
Philippians 3:17-4:1 Introduction: The Philippian Christians were citizens of Rome by virtue of living in Philippi, a Roman colony, and they were proud of that fact. Paul, though, said there are only two kinds of people – citizens of the world and citizens of heaven. And the contrasts between them are stark. I. DESCRIPTION OF THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD a. Their destiny is destruction. b. Their god is their stomach. c. Their glory is in their shame. d. 1 Peter 2:11 II. DESCRIPTION OF THE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN a. We have the advantage of knowing there is something better. b. We have the assurance of knowing that the one who created us will take us until Himself. 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 Hebrews 12:1-2 Colossians 3:1-2 Romans 6:23
- “WHEN YOU’VE COME TO THE END OF YOUR ROPE”
Isaiah 40:21-31 The Jewish exiles from Judah who were captives in Babylon had begun to feel despondent and dejected, helpless and hopeless. What did God want to remind them of, and what does God want to remind us of when we’ve come to the end of our rope? I. GOD ALWAYS HEARS HIS PEOPLE. (V. 27) a. The cry of God’s people is never out of God’s hearing. b. He is always involved in the life situations of His children. c. He is always there, even when it seems He’s not. II. GOD IS MUCH GREATER THAN HIS PEOPLE. (V. 28) a. There is no limit to God’s power or wisdom. b. God’s life-giving energy is limitless. III. GOD SHARES HIS POWER WITH HIS PEOPLE. (V. 29, 30) a. God’s greatest desire is to share His quality of life (eternal) with us. b. God’s strength is unfailing. (II Corinthians 12:9) IV. GOD’S PEOPLE CAN LIVE IN GOD’S POWER. (V. 31) a. God wants us to “exchange” our strength for His. b. Psalm 3:1-3 c. There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! d. There’s an old rugged cross and an empty tomb at the end of your rope!
- “PAPAS WITH PROPERLY PLACED PRIORITIES”
Genesis 22:1-18 In today’s passage, we have an example of a man, of a father, Abraham, who put his priorities in their proper place. The influence of a father, the effect he has on the lives of those around him, is enormous. It is imperative that we as fathers be spiritual examples in our homes. What are the spiritual principles taught to fathers in this passage? I. OUR FAMILIES BELONG TO GOD. a. God entrusts to us and expects from us. b. Isaac was a child of promise to Abraham and Sarah. c. Genesis 18:12 II. THE SPIRITUAL LEADER OF THE HOME SHOULD BE THE FATHER. a. Ephesians 5:22-25 b. Ephesians 6:1-4 III. GOD RICHLY REWARDS THE FATHER WHO IS FAITHFUL TO HIM. a. Abraham placed faithfulness to God above everything else in his life. b. Ultimately, God spared the life of Isaac. c. Eventually, God did not spare His own Son’s life! (Romans 8:32) d. Joshua 24:14-15

- COVID-19 | tcbcwaco new
Covid-19 Announcement Pastor Bill strongly urges those coming to Sunday services and Wednesday evening prayer meeting to prayerfully consider wearing a mask when close to others and exercise caution. This request comes from a genuine love in Christ of a shepherd for his flock and a desire for health and safety. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make. Texas Department of State Health Services Information Stay safe! Devote yourselves to prayer; stay alert in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2 While COVID-19 is still a real and tangible risk and health issue in our community and church, we can be grateful that we are beginning to see its effects lessen and risk decrease. Governor Abbott’s removal of the state mandates for mask-wearing and building capacity puts the focus on churches, schools, businesses, and other entities to establish their own policies. After reviewing our church’s COVID protocols, it seems best to maintain our current practices for a bit longer. The Governor did encourage all Texans to follow safe practices, especially when gathering in groups and with others outside of your household. At this point, I request that you continue to wear a mask into and out of our Sunday morning gatherings, in other words, when moving to and from your seat in the sanctuary. Once you are in your distanced seat, you are free to leave your mask on or take it off. I don’t see any reason to change this policy until we can see the effects of more widespread vaccination. Hopefully, that will be soon! You’ve done a great job keeping appropriate space between yourselves and others – please keep it up! Of course, if you are ill or have health concerns, please stay home, and join our worship services online. However, if possible, please do your best to overcome any other barriers that might keep you from worship. My desire is that no one would unnecessarily be isolated from the “Fellowship of the Saints” gathered in God’s house! Now more than ever, we need to pray for each other. There are indications we’ve turned a corner on this pandemic. How long before we “get back to normal”? No one perfectly knows, but count me among the optimists! Philippians 1: 3 Bro. Bill
