What should a minister speak? Titus 2:1–2 looks forward to the second serial reading of in morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these two verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that ministers should speak not just sound doctrine, but application appropriate to the people, beginning with the elderly men.

Statistics show a propensity in society toward perpetual adolescence: adult children still living at home well into their twenties. But spiritually speaking, it shouldn't be this way in the church. In this sermon, Pastor Jesse unpacks Col. 1:28-29. Here you'll see the importance of working toward maturity - and helping others attain the same goal.
The leading men of the congregation must show the way for all the men to live for the nurture and advancement of the home, church, and society. These qualifications God expects to see in His men run counter to what the world celebrates but they are the way God has provided for the care of His people.
Jesus said He would build His church and the gates of hell would not prevail against it. If He is building His church, then what is our role? In this message, Pastor Steve gives 6 things that have to happen for a church to grow. Join us as we look at Ephesians 4:11-16.
There is an exhortation to avoid celebrity preachers. Be careful. Be discerning. Ministries based upon style and personality and not content will block your spiritual growth and unity in fellowship. There is only one legitimate ministry within the church and that is the ministry of Christ by the Spirit through the Scripture. Christ has given pastor-teachers, evangelists, and so on, not to promote themselves but to bring you to maturity and unity in Him.
Set Apart: But Not Alone. 1 Cor. 2:6-16;John 14:16To "have the mind of Christ" does not mean we are infallible and start playing God in the lives of other people. Nobody instructs God!One of the marks of maturity is discernment—the ability to penetrate beneath the surface of life and see things as they really are. Unsaved people "walk by sight" and really see nothing. They are spiritually blind. The maturing Christian grows in his spiritual discernment and develops the ability (with the Spirit's help) to understand more and more of the will and mind of God. Paul was telling the Corinthian Church they were lacking in wisdom and discernment.As God's children,we have something far greater than worldly wisdom.The Holy Spirit helps us understand the things of GOD.The Holy Spirit helps us see things from Christ's perspective.
