3. Respect Matthew 10: 25 It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, for the slave that become like his master.

Being Spiritual Matthew 5: 1-7 When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.

Judging Others Matthew 7: 3-5 Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye How can you say to your brother, Let me remove the splinter from your eye, while the wooden beam is in your own. You hypocrite, remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye. 6. Career Gifts Matthew 25: 29-30 For to everyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And throw this useless servant into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of the teeth. 7.
Death John 11: 25-26 Jesus told her, I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me wil never die. Do you believe this 8. Conscience John 8: 1-11 While Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. But early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area, and all the people started coming to him, and he sat down and taught them.
Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle. They said to him, Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say. They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.
But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her. Again he bent down and wrote on the ground. And in response they went away one by one, beginning with the elders, so he was left alone with the woman before him. Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, the woman, Woman, where are they Has no one condemned you She replied, No one sir.
Then Jesus said, neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin anymore. 9. Impact of Faith on the World Mark 16: 15-16 He said to them, Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. 10.
Christian Witnessing John 17: 18-29 Consecrate them in the truth. Your world is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate myself for them, so that they may also be consecrated in truth.
I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you Father, and are me and I in you that they may also be in us, that the world may believe you sent me. And I have given them the Glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may also be brought into perfection as one, that the world may know you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me. Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they might also be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world. Righteous Father, the world also does not know you, but I know you, and they know that you sent me. I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love, which you loved me, may be in them and I in them.
11. Second Coming of Christ Matthew 24: 29-31 Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heaven will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the Earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with great power and glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to another. 12.
The Golden Rule Matthew 7: 12 Do to others as you will have them do unto you. 13. The Value of the Soul Mark 8: 36-37 What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life What could one give in exchange for his life 14. Leadership John 13: 13-16 You call me teacher and master and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and the teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to was one another’s feet.
I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do. Amen, Amen I say to you, no slave is greater than neither his master nor a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 15. Love John 15: 9-17 And the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.
I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.
I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another. 16.
Worry Matthew 7: 25-27 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined. 17.
Persistence in Prayer Matthew 15: 21-28 Then Jesus went from that place and withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And behold, a Canaanite woman of that district came and called out. Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is tormented by a demon. But he did not say a word in answer to her. His disciples came and asked him, Send her away, for she keeps calling out after us.
He said in reply, I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. But the woman came and did him homage, saying, Lord, help me. He said in reply, It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs. She said, Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters. Then Jesus said to her in reply, O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.
And her daughter was healed from that hour. 18. Rejection John 15: 18-25 If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you. Remember the word I spoke to you, No slave is greater than his maser. If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.
If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin; but as it is they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me also hates my Father. If I had not done works among them that no one else ever did, they would not have sin; but as it is, they have seen and hated both me and my Father. But in order that the word written in their law might be fulfilled, They hated me without cause.
19. Obedience John 12: 49-50 Because I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and speak. And I know what his commandment is eternal life. So what I say, I say as the Father told me.
20. The Final Exam Matthew 25: 31-46 When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them from one another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the king will say to those on his right, Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me. Then the righteous will answer him say, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you drink When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you And the king will say to them in reply, Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me. Then he will say to those on his left, Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.
Then they will answer and say, Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and did not minister to your needs He will answer them, Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me. And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. 21. The Best Ideal John 3: 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. 22. Avoiding Greed Luke 12: 12-15 For the holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say.
Someone in the crowd said to him, Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me. He replied to him, Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator Then he said to the crowd, Take care to guard against all greed, for though one may be rich, one’s life does not consist of possessions. 23. Religious People Luke 11: 43 Woe to you Pharisees!
You love the seat of honor in synagogues and greetings in marketplaces. 24. Depending on God Luke 12: 22-25 He said to his disciples, Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat, or about your body and what you will wear. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. Notice the ravens: they do not sow or reap; they have neither storehouse nor barn, yet God feeds them. How much more important are you than birds!
Can any of you by worrying add a moment to your life span 25. The World’s Hatred John 15: 18-19 If the world hates you realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world the world will love it’s own but because you do not belong to the world and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.
