How fellow believers become a source of happiness for others.
Tuesday, April 3, 2001
mou [my]chara used here for happiness = my source of happiness.
We are gathering together not for fellowship but to hear the word of God, HEB 10:25.
PHI 2:2-5 “Bring to completion my inner happiness by thinking the same things, maintaining the same virtue-love, united in soul, concentrating on the same objective. Do nothing motivated by contentiousness or ambitious pride, but with humility of mind let each of you keep on considering one another as more important than himself; do not merely be regarding your own personal interests, but also for the personal interests of others. Keep on thinking this [doctrine] within yourselves which was also resident in Christ Jesus,”
Goal/purpose – evangelize and teach the Gospel correctly to the unbeliever and to prepare the believer to communicate the Gospel correctly.
Goal/purpose – communicate the PPOG and Bible doctrine to the believer.
Goal/purpose raise up evangelists and pastors and missionaries and send them out throughout the world.
It is possible to serve Satan even though you belong to the Lord; 1JO 3:10.
Anyone who is Positive Toward Bible Doctrine becomes a source of happiness and encouragement to the one who communicates Bible doctrine.
Turn to MAT 7:13-14
Anyone who grows and advances spiritually under the ministry of a pastor-teacher becomes a source of happiness for that pastor.
All growth, blessing, anything that is worth-while in life, loving TLJC, capacity for life, love, happiness, are tied into Bible doctrine.
