Thoughts From A Recent Sermon...

Competing Against Devils
 
Bro Joshua Thilmony, 4/23/2017 
 
1 Corinthians 9.25 Every man that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. 
  
I recently read an article in the Gospel Trumpeter by Brother Decker about Pressing. After reading the article, I made up my mind to press harder for God. 
 
The athlete strives for a mastery. The Greek word for striving here looks like "agonizing."   
 
It takes an agonizing effort to build congregations and spread the gospel. We are competing against spirits of devils. Paul said in Ephesians 6 that we wrestle with them. They want to take us down. My high school had a successful wrestling program. The training was so intense in the early part of the season that the coaches put buckets on the wrestling mats for the young men to puke in. It was agonizing for them, but then if you walked out into the gymnasium, you could see the banners hanging on the wall: this man was a state champion, and a few years later another man was a state champion. I do not know how many state champion banners were in that gym. One thing is for sure, state champions and puke buckets go together. It will take agony to successfully build congregations also. 
 
We must agonize in prayer. Cry out to God until things change. Elijah kept praying and sending his servant to check the cloud conditions. He prayed until the report changed. Strive in prayer until something happens!
 
We must agonize to have much learning. Festus accused Paul of being mad, and he said it was because of Paul's "much learning." Paul said, I am not mad, but speak the words of truth! O give us hearts that are hungry for the knowledge of God! Because of much learning, Paul was able to write much of the New Testament. Because of much learning, he was able to become all things to all men, that he might save a few. Because of much learning, he was able to expound the Old Testament scriptures about Christ. The buzzword in education is "rigor." Universities want rigorous programs that challenge their students. May God help us to put rigor in our Christian learning. 
 
Do people see striving and agonizing effort in your prayer life? Is it evident that you have learned much truth?
