  • The Fruit of the Spirit Part 2

    The battle between the spirit and the flesh Our key text is Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. As we study the fruit of the Spirit you will begin to see that we are really studying is the character of God. We must become Christ-like and therefore it is essential that we know what he is like, so we know what we are aiming at in our lives. Jesus says ‘by their fruit shall ye know them’ referring to the character of the false prophets. We need to know what good fruit is like to be able to spot the false prophet. This is important in these last days of increasing deception. Or how about a marriage, business, or ministry partner or even a leader in the church. It is all about character. We need to be able to compare the lusts of the flesh with the fruit of the Spirit to recognise whether we are walking in the flesh or in the Spirit. This provides a measure of our growth and maturity as we mortify the deeds of the flesh and walk in the Spirit. If any of the lusts of the flesh are still present in our lives, we need to repent and forsake them. The fruit of the Spirit being manifest in a believer’s life is a much more accurate way of assessing maturity than to consider their operation in the gifts of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit in your life will draw those who are open to salvation to you and will cause those who hate God to hate you. Fruit in the natural sense contains seeds for reproduction. When an unbeliever tastes or sees the fruit in your life, a seed of love is sown in their hearts which God can bring to life; love reproducing love. The battle between the spirit and the flesh Galatians 5:16 This I say then, walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. that are Christ's v.16. To walk in the Spirit means to live your life constantly in the truth of the word of God, listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit and being led and guided by them working together. This involves being constantly aware of the reality of all the promises of God to you and of the reality of all the spiritual blessings we have in Christ Jesus. It also involves constant refusal to yield to selfishness, unforgiveness and all other forms of sin. Love must always be our motive to please God. See also below 'How to walk in the Spirit' v.17 From the moment that we are saved there begins a lifelong battle between the flesh and the spirit. Our flesh has the old sin nature in it and is selfish, sinful, and indulgent and always insists on getting its own way. The regenerated human spirit has been made in the image of God and its nature is the selfless love of God. The flesh seeks to dominate and rule over the spirit whilst the regenerate human spirit seeks to crucify the flesh. The victory in any given situation is decided in the mind of the believer when we decide to obey God or yield to the flesh. v.18 Jesus Christ completely fulfilled the Law and when we are led by His spirit, we are not under the Law but are at liberty by the grace of God. We are free to choose to obey His royal law of love which is written in our hearts. We are free to choose life, that zoe abundant life!

  • Dealing with fear Part 5

    Your love must be stronger than your fear Fear is dealt with, in a separate way between believers and unbelievers. Fear is debilitating and even paralysing and is opposite to faith. Did you know that faith and fear are mutually exclusive? Choose where you are going to live today, in the house of faith or in the house of fear? God wants to move you from the house of fear into the house of faith. It is important to realise that our fear of the Lord can be the antidote/answer to the wrong type of fear. The right fear overcomes the bad fear. Again, we get to choose which type of fear is going to be active in our lives. Choose well, choose life, choose the fear of the Lord! If we live by our feelings, they can drag us down into the pit of fear. But we need to see our situations in life through the lens of faith and through the lens of the bible not through the lens of doubt and fear. Here is what some well-known believers have said about fear/worry/anxiety. ¨ 'Anxiety is not only a pain which we must ask God to assuage but also a weakness we must ask Him to pardon -- for He's told us to take no care for the morrow.’ - C.S. Lewis ¨ “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.” ― George Mueller ¨ “Remember, fear is of the flesh and panic is of the devil. Never fear and never get panicky.” ― A.W. Tozer ¨ The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else. “— Oswald Chambers ¨ “Worry is an indication that we think God cannot look after us.” -- Oswald Chambers Fear and the pandemic Could it be that because modern society is so steeped in fear it has collectively lost the fear of a holy God? Yet many people fear death, sickness, poverty, helplessness, loneliness, future, commitment, failure, etc. So, what is the answer? - Turn to the Prince of Peace. How has the pandemic fear affected the church? Fear in the church has to some extent set some believers against others Infected vs non-infected Masked vs unmasked Vaxxed vs unvaxxed Matthew 8:3 Jesus touched the leper and healed him. Princess Diana held the AID’s patient’s hand. Our fear must never overpower of love of any person. What a tremendous witness to the unbelievers it would be to see the church putting their love above their fear? Remember that fear/worry/anxiety and the like are sins. Prayer and ministry Lord we now recognise our sins and repent of all the fear/worry and anxiety that we have let into our lives. We know that according to 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Lord, we receive your forgiveness by faith through Jesus Christ. Amen Where prayer is needed to cut off certain of your fears (remember the 8 main types) you might need the assistance of a experienced church leader or a mature believer that you trust.

  • Dealing with fear Part 4

    Four more types of fear In part 4 of our study we consider a further 4 types of fear that are experienced by people generally including believers. 5. Fear of circumstances or consequences An example of this type of fear is found with the prophet Elijah who after having destroyed the prophets of Baal, heard that the wicked Queen Jezebel was seeking revenge on Elijah. This produced fear and worry, and Elijah ended up hiding in a cave. At this point God gave Elijah various tasks to keep his mind off the threat of Jezebel. So when you experience this type of fear try to keep busy and remember to rehearse all the promises God has made to you in his word. The enemy says on good deed goes unpunished; the Lord says no good deed goes unrewarded! Scripture Antidote Matthew 6:25 (Jesus speaking) Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 6. Fear of the unknown or future This is a common type of fear, and a biblical example is that of Gideon. Gideon needed extra assurances from the Lord demonstrated by his laying out a fleece on more than one occasion which surprisingly God honoured. At the end of his career Gideon because he needed to know the future took the gold earrings of the Amalekites and melted them and fashioned the gold into a golden ephod (only the high priest was allowed to do this to get the word of the Lord for the future). So Gideon because of his fears for the future led Israel astray into idolatry[1]. We must realise 3 things about the future a. God has a plan for your life b. God’s grace is sufficient for you c. God will provide exactly what you need at the point it is needed (not before). 7. Fear caused by sin Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. Fear can grip wicked people to the extent they run away even when no one is chasing them! Isaiah 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Sin produces fear, but righteous living produces peace. We all need to keep short accounts with the Lord using where relevant 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 8. Irrational fears (phobias) These fears are common even amongst believers and include fear of mice, spiders, snakes, and moths etc etc. These phobias are quite lightweight and usually can be removed by believing prayer. Such fears can be like inherited fears where a child sees a parent overreacting to for example a mouse or other creature. It is as though the fear is transmitted from adult to child. Scripture vs Fear 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. Perfect love casts out fear, as we deal with fear in our lives the fear demons leave. The more filled we are with his love the less room for fear to enter. The more aware we are of God’s love for us the more confident we are he will help us 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. So where did the fear come from? Prayer, Lord, we thank you for your keys for us to walk free from all ungodly fear. Please give us a revelation of who we are in Christ. Amen For full text and access to all parts of 'Dealing with fear' please click on link below https://www.psalmonesermons.com/post/dealing-with-fear-part-4 [1] The Ephod that Gideon built was his own personal idol; perhaps a golden calf made from the gold he plundered in the battle, which became a stumbling block to his own household and all of Israel. This is the final downturn of his character and falling away of the one true God (see Judges 8:22-27).

  • Statement of Faith | Psalm One Sermons

    Statement of Faith 1. We believe that the Bible, (i.e. The Old and New Testaments), is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice. 2. We believe in the unity of the one, true and living God, who is the eternal, self-existent 'I AM', who has also revealed Himself as the one being co-existing in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 3. We believe in the virgin birth, sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension and abiding intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory, as the blessed hope of all believers. 4. We believe in the Fall of man, who was created pure and upright, but fell by voluntary transgression. 5. We believe in salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, who according to the scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His blood we have redemption. This experience is also known as the New Birth and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. 6. We believe that all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Saviour, are commanded to be baptised by immersion in water. 7. We believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, as an enduement of the believer with power for service, the essential biblical evidence of which, is the speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. 8. We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ in the church today. 9. We believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God. 10. We believe that deliverance from sickness by Divine Healing, is provided for in the atonement. 11. We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Christ as Lord and Saviour, should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread. 12. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, and the everlasting conscious punishment of all whose names are not written in the Book of Life.
