Subtopic: Will You Serve?

Scripture:
Foundation Scripture: Joshua 24: 14-16
Joshua 24 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.
And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.
I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.
And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.
And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.
Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
And ye went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.
And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;
For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:
And the LORD drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the LORD; for he is our God.
And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.
And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the LORD.
And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.
Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel.
And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.
So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD.
And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.
So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.
And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old.
And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.
And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel.
And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.
And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a hill that pertained to Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim.

Colossians 1: 15-18 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister

Death of the twelve apostles and the Gospel writers
Church tradition
The Bible does not record many details about the ministry of the apostles, apart from Peter and Paul, and gives no details of any of their deaths except for James being beheaded.
Some of the traditions that have grown up about the deaths of the apostles and Gospel writers are not at all trustworthy, while some of the traditions are supported by historical records. One things is certain: the early church suffered great persecution and most of Jesus’ twelve apostles became martyrs.
Gospel writers
Matthew
Matthew is said to have been martyred in Ethopia, killed by a sword wound.
Mark
Mark, it is believed, died in Alexandria, Egypt, dragged by horses through the streets until he was dead.
Luke
Luke, tradition maintains, was hanged in Greece as a result of his preaching.
The apostles
John
Tradition states that John, who was the only apostle to write a Gospel, was boiled in a huge basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution in Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered from death. John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison island of Patmos where he wrote the book of Revelation. The Apostle John was later freed and returned to serve as a bishop in modern Turkey. He died an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully.
Peter
Peter was crucified upside down on an x-shaped cross, according to Church tradition, because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
James the Just
James the Just, the leader of the Church in Jerusalem and brother of Jesus, is said to have been thrown down more than a hundred feet from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. He survived the fall and so was clubbed to death.
James the Greater
James, a son of Zebedee, was beheaded at Jerusalem, according to the Bible record.
“Now about that time Herod the king put forth his hands to afflict certain of the church.
2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword” Acts 12:1–2 ASV.
Tradition says that the Roman soldier who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial. Later, the officer walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.
Bartholomew
Bartholomew, also known as Nathanael, became a missionary in present day Turkey. He was whipped to death for his preaching in Armenia.
Thomas
Thomas was speared to death on one of his missionary trips to India.
Jude
Jude was killed with arrows after refusing to deny his faith in Christ.
Matthias
Matthias, the apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot, was stoned and beheaded.
Barnabas
Barnabas, one of the group of seventy disciples, was stoned to death at Salonica.
Paul
Paul was tortured and then beheaded by Emperor Nero at Rome in a.d. 67.

CLOSE
Matt 25: 35-40
For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

I Think the Use of Strategic Use and Display of Emotions Serve to Protect Employees for a Reason, and That Even Though You Cover Your True Emotions in Certain Situations It’s Best for the Organization. Displayed

...Week 7 Case Study – Going Global You are the HR manager of a firm that is about to send its first employees overseas to staff a new subsidiary. Your boss, the president, asks you why such assignments often fail, and what you plan to do to avoid such failures. How do you respond? After careful research I would present the president with six challenges of using expats: 1. Problems with selection and recruitment of appropriate candidates on overseas assignments 2. The problems of an expatriate and/or a spouse with adjustment to the host country, and/or family problems 3. Expatriates’ lack of knowledge of the host countries social cultural environment as well as cross-cultural misunderstandings. 4. An expatriate’s lack of command of the local language 5. Limited foreign language proficiency among the local mangers 6. High costs of expatriates’ pay package Next I would outline the steps we are taking to overcome the challenges: Our first step is to do an analysis of critical job competencies then select potential candidates from the results. Step two is to perform psychological tests on the candidates and their family members. Step three is determine who is the best candidate for the position by factoring in all of the above. Step four is to verse the whole family in the culture the host country. Step five is to provide the family with basic language skills and the employee with targeted language skills. Step six is to hire a translator in the host......

The Tennis Serve

...The Tennis Serve By: Brayden Bennell Harloff 7/8 5/18/2015 What do you need to do to make sure you have a successful tennis serve? Sure practice will help, but truly the secret lies in different muscles in your arms, abs, and most importantly legs. Legs? Why Legs? In this presentation I will show you why and how you can maximize your ability in your serve. To begin with a successful serve, look for a racquet that has a grip that fits the size of your hand, this will maximize grip as well as momentum through the swing of your stroke. The serve is a full body motion, not just an upper body move, if one thing is off the whole serve will be different than expected. I suggest the Babolat Aero Drive tennis racquet for powerful serves, as being one of the heavier performance racquets on the market it will provide more power and control to your shots. You will be amazed with what 10.9 ounces can do for your game. To start I would lift small weights of 5-10 pounds daily in the swing of the serve, this will help strengthen all the muscles you actually use when you serve the ball. Believe it or not, the main muscles in your arm don’t take a part in what makes a powerful serve, it’s the muscles that are hidden and are significantly smaller than the bicep, and tricep. But enough about that, now that you know some tips lets move on to the knowledge and mental aspect of the serve. Your mental game in tennis is more important than anything else, if you don’t believe and get down on......

How to Encourage Others to Work in the Church

...laughter at an instant. Regardless of background, pedigree or age I believe we all have gifts from God. These gifts were given to us to use for the exhortation of God and the building of his kingdom. Unfortunately we still have a major problem with getting people to lend their gifts to the house of God. Many people just don’t have an interest, or feel compelled to serve. They often times come to church year after year and do nothing. They have no interest what-so-ever to serve or assist in any capacity or manner within the ministry. No matter how many times we announce the need for ushers, greeters, children’s church teachers, camp counselors or choir members they have no desire to serve, even though they thoroughly enjoy the benefits of those ministries themselves. Someone once said people come to church with a SERVE-US mentality instead of a SERVICE mentality. This statement is truly echoed and brought to life when people are selecting churches in this modern day climate. People are no longer concerned about the mission of the church, the goals or the church or the history of the church they are only concerned about what that particular church can do for them personally. Rarely do you see people who wonder what they can do for the church. This paper will discuss how people can be encouraged to dedicate their gifting to God and use it in the local church. We will discuss “understanding you are gifted”, “compelling to serve”, and “serving with an...

It  goes very well with almost any kind of traditional food and serves as a filling tea-time snack. Also, its longer shelf life makes it an ideal face-saver in front of unexpected guests. Roasted rice flour 1 cup Gram flour/Besan 1 cup Red chilly powder 1 tsp + 2 tsp Asafetida ¼ tsp Peanuts 1 cup Chana dal ½ cup Dry red chilly 3-4 nos Curry leaves 3 sprigs Oil 2 TBSP + more for frying Salt as needed Water Preparation In a mixing bowl, add the rice flour, gram flour/besan, salt and 1 tsp red chilly powder. Mix well and drizzle 1 TBSP oil. Combine well and knead this into smooth dough by adding water little by little. It may stick to your hands at first but the oil will help to get smooth dough as you progress with kneading. Set aside. Heat oil for frying in a deep pan. When hot (check by adding a piece of the dough, if it comes to the surface promptly, oil is hot enough), using an idiyappam press (picture shown above), with the small hole mould plate, sieve the dough to hot oil in circular motion, like how you do it for idiyappam.

Methods of Evangelism

...method I chose to write about is the Romans road (Wheeler, 2000). The Romans road is a simple way of walking a person down a road to salvation. According to Wheeler (2000), this method uses verses in Romans to show a lost person why they need a savior. Romans 3:23 (New International Version) tells them that they are not alone in their sin; we have all sinned. Romans 6:23 tells us that the penalty for sin is death but God has given us a gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Then in Romans 5:8 we are told how much God loves us despite our sinful nature. We then use Romans 10:9, 13 to tell the unbeliever how s/he can become a child of Christ. Then we ask him/her if they would like to make that choice now, regardless of whether they asked Christ into their lives or not. The next passages are Romans 5:1; 8:1; 8:38-39. In these next passages of scripture we discuss exactly what the eternal implications of a choice to live for Christ mean. The advantage of the Romans road is that it is pretty cut and dry evangelism. If you have someone who is willing to sit and listen to what you have to say or even read with you, it would be awesome. This method in my opinion works well with people who have already been prepared. The disadvantage to this method is that it’s hard to just walk up to someone and start down the Romans road. You need someone who’s willing to have that conversation. If you wanted to talk to someone who was not very receptive to hearing about Jesus, you......

Military

...At this time the United States of America does not required men to serve in the military like other countries? Well I have wondered why myself to. But I am going to point out three reasons on why I think men should have to serve in this essay. One being men need to learn discipline. Two we need to keep this country that we live in safe and secured. And lastly to boost our economy and put more people to work. Men should serve in the military to lean discipline. Men these day have no respect for there parents let alone the cops. The military will help train them to respect people above them. Not only that it will help them with work ethic from the discipline point of view to be able to do their job and work hard at doing it. They will break you down and build you back up through training and physical training. If you screw up they will teach you how to act and then make you do some kind of physical training so it will sink you to your head. It is vital in our country to keep it protected to keep our freedoms that our fore fathers fought for and all the men and women before us. There for all men should be required to serve in the military. We are in a world of terrorism in this day and age, for example September 11, 2001 automatically comes to mind when I think of terrorism. Therefore men shouldn’t have to be asked to join they should just want to join if they want to keep their freedoms that they have. Where are the jobs in this country? Where is the money in this country...

Can Women Serve in Combat

...Can Women Serve In Combat? The Military Leadership Diversity Commission is recommending that the Pentagon do away with a policy that bans women from serving in combat units, breathing new life into a debate that really should never have developed in the first place. Let’s take a look at the reasons for the current ban, and the reasons why some may be trying to lift the ban that keeps women from serving in direct combat roles. First, Let Me Be Clear Let me be clear in efforts to head off any “you hate women” ignorance. This article is not about whether women should be allowed to serve in the military in general. This is specifically about why I personally believe women (female or trans-gendered) should not be allowed to, forced into, pressured, or even given the option to serve in direct combat roles such as Infantry, Sniper, Special Forces, Recon, Ranger, SEAL, Combat Diver, or Delta units. In my opinion, this is a common sense issue… but to no surprise, the “well-educated” people that have done studies and compiled reports commissioned by the government seem to be incapable of utilizing a commodity such as common sense. And trust me, I have seen many women, especially in the Marine Corps, that were highly capable, willing and able to serve in infantry and combat-related roles. There’s more to it than that. Reasons Why Women Should Not Serve In Direct Combat Roles Strength, equality, logistics, safety and emotions are a few main areas that I would like to......

Do God Really Exist

...“Does god really do Exist”? The world and mankind has been transform into a place where you must have some sort of believe to live. God created man and he had given man a free will to choose who he may serve. Out of this became all different kinds of religions, teaching, and gods, but none are not as powerful as the god all mighty Jesus Christ, who created the heaven and the earth. Before mankind, god create all things on this earth and in the universe and after he said it was prefect. Then god created Adam in his likeness to rule over the land and to serve him in true.

Call and Qualification Analysis

...ministry. The criteria consist of four specific things the first is confirmation of the call to ministry by others and God. I started this pursuit of ministry officially back in 2009 however I was saved when I was young and born again in high school joined the Army was thrown off course for 6 years then I met my wife we began to invest our time and family in the church and I came to realize by working in the children’s ministry that ministry was my calling. I’m still not sure what level of ministry I feel in my heart it is lead pastoral ministry, but God has not affirmed that yet however God has and so has others many times that the path I am on is the right one and ministry is my calling.
