Contending for The Faith | Jason Parkin

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

We live at a time where false prophets and teachers seek to creep into the church. We therefore must continue to be vigilant to contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints.

Play The Man | Jason Parkin

2 Samuel 10:12 Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God: and the LORD do that which seemeth him good.

Like Gideon, as men we need to be the man that God calls us to be before he can use us in a great way. We need to play the man.

The Local Church | Jason Parkin

Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

The local church is a place where God’s people can find rest from the world and be fed the word of God. This highlights the importance of having good pastors that serve the congregation with compassion.

The Praise of His Glory | Jason Parkin

Ephesians 1:12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

God works all things according to the counsel of his will. Whether we experience good or evil in this life, God will work through all situations to the praise of his glory.

Unto Him Be the Glory | Jason Parkin

Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

It is for the Lord’s pleasure that his creation would give him glory and honour. All creation makes the creator known, therefore mankind is without excuse to know him.

The Sin of Lying | Jason Parkin

Proverbs 12:22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

Speaking lies is a sin that is easily committed and could be assumed to be a minor offence. Yet God lists it among the greatest sins and calls it an abomination.

Suffer the Little Children | Jason Parkin

Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

We should not assume that children raised in a christian home will know the same biblical truths that their parents have learnt. Parents need to teach their children and protect them from worldly distractions that hinder their knowledge of the scriptures.

Be Filled with The Spirit | Jason Parkin

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

It was promised that Jesus would baptise his believers with the Holy Spirit. We must be able to identify churches which are led and filled with the Spirit from those which feign spiritual experiences.

Golden Calf Religion | Jason Parkin

Revelation 10:10-11 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

The entire bible must be preached, the sweet as well as the bitter. The golden calf is an example of Israel not receiving the bitterness of God’s word, choosing to create for themselves a false religion of sweetness.
