BIBLE VERSE – JOHN 3:16

by on Apr.23, 2013, under Church Life

 

John 3:16 is probably the most well known verse in the Bible:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

bible-john-3-16

No other verse in the Bible so succinctly summarises God’s relationship with humanity and the way of salvation. There are a number of other ‘3:16’ verses though, that are profound for us:

To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” Genesis 3:16

The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel. Joel 3:16

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. Matthew 3:16

John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Luke 3:16

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16

But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 2 Corinthians 3:16

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Ephesians 3:16

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. 2 Thessalonians 3:16

Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. 1 Timothy 3:16

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16

Finally, the apostle Paul closes 2 Timothy (v16-17) with, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

Of course, every single word of the Old and New Testament is relevant and significant for us, I just find (by coincidence) that a number of ‘3:16’ verses are GOLD!

KEY QUALITIES FOR A LEADER – 5 C’s

by on Apr.10, 2013, under Leadership

Ministry can not be done effectively on your own. As a church grows, there is a need for more workers to ‘bring in the harvest’. How do you know who is up to the task?

Leadership Road Sign

At spch, leaders have a mandate to discover, develop and deploy new leaders. Here’s 5 key qualities to consider when identifying new leaders for your team:

1. CHARACTER

Moral or ethical quality

2. COMPETENCE

Of required skill, knowledge, qualification or capacity

3. CHEMISTRY

The interaction of one personality with another

4. CONVICTION

A fixed or firm belief

5. CULTURE

The behaviours and beliefs that define an organisation

* The first 3 have been ‘borrowed’ from the Bill Hybels book, AXIOM

 

Essentially, we need to be sure that the person shares the same values and beliefs of the leader, ministry team and church. All of these qualities are important. Too often, leaders hire for competence and find that they have to fire for character.

It’s better to take your time, to make sure that they will be a good fit. The damage caused by a rushed leadership appointment can be catastrophic.

What other qualities would you add?
