Jesus Helps Us See True Lordship and Eager Service (Luke 17:7-10)

Jesus explains how priority and quantity both relate to true Lordship. Jesus asks two hard-hitting rhetorical questions. The first question reveals one’s true lord based on the priority given the Lord. The second question reveals our true or false view of Lordship based upon our attitude towards our service, and how we measure it. Do we serve eagerly or perform the minimum?

Yielded Followership #12 – Man Is the Head of the Home under Christ

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Following with what God assigns to the man in the Garden of Eden before the woman was created, we can understand how his role is shaped to lead the entire family, not just his wife.

Yielded Followership #8 – Wives to Husbands: Foundational Passages in Genesis

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Before one can correctly understand “submit” commands and their contexts regarding gender, we must first understand God’s established order and design in creation. These commands relate directly to and stem from God’s purposeful design of man and marriage. To teach the commands without the understanding of creation is to miss the foundational concepts necessary to make God’s plan work. These commands involve God’s designed plan, purpose, and position for each gender.

Yielded Followership #7 – Submitting to Others by Submitting to God

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Yielded Followership #5 – God-Ward Yielding

Monday, May 25th, 2009

Our highest Authority is God Himself. (As the One Who created everything, and appoints all other authorities, this makes sense!) We must commit to obeying God and following His truth no matter what. Audio and notes for the Basic Disciplines for Believers series can be found HERE.

Yielded Followership #4 – Yielding to Authority

Monday, May 18th, 2009

One of the most foundational concepts of a believer’s growth is to learn the importance of authority and submission. Every relationship created by God has both authority and submission. Learning to submit is fundamental to our proper response to God, to having a godly marriage and raising godly children, to having a Biblically functioning congregation, and to our proper response to government and those without. Audio and notes for the Basic Disciplines for Believers series can be found HERE.
