“Fathering like the Father”

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

June 18, 2017 Sunday AM Father’s Day

 

  1. As Fathers, we must learn to be Merciful as our Heavenly Father is Merciful.

 

Luke 6:36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

 

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

Psalm 103:8-14   The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.  9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;  10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.  11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;  12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.  13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;  14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.

 

  1. As Fathers, we must be Faithful as our Heavenly Father is Faithful.

Deuteronomy 7:8-9  8 But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.  9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.

 

  1. As Fathers, we must learn to Love as our Heavenly Father Loves.

 

1 John 3:1  How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

 

1 John 4:7-8  7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:16  16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

 

John 3:16   16 "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.

 

  1. As Fathers, we must be Holy as our Heavenly Father is Holy.

 

1 Peter 1:14-17  14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.  15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;  16 for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."  17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.

 

Main Idea: To be a godly father means to father like God.

Psalm 5

For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.

 

Listen to my words, LORD,

consider my lament.

Hear my cry for help,

my King and my God,

for to you I pray.

In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice;

in the morning I lay my requests before you

and wait expectantly.

For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;

with you, evil people are not welcome.

The arrogant cannot stand

in your presence.

You hate all who do wrong;

6     you destroy those who tell lies.

The bloodthirsty and deceitful

you, LORD, detest.

But I, by your great love,

can come into your house;

in reverence I bow down

toward your holy temple.

Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness

because of my enemies—

make your way straight before me.

Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;

their heart is filled with malice.

Their throat is an open grave;

with their tongues they tell lies.

10 Declare them guilty, O God!

Let their intrigues be their downfall.

Banish them for their many sins,

for they have rebelled against you.

11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;

let them ever sing for joy.

Spread your protection over them,

that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous;

you surround them with your favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5, NIV)

“Who Is the LORD?” (Exodus 5:1–9)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday PM, June 11, 2017

 

Exodus 5:1–9 (NIV)

5 Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Let my people go, so that they may hold a festival to me in the wilderness.’”

Pharaoh said, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the LORD and I will not let Israel go.”

Then they said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Now let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God, or he may strike us with plagues or with the sword.”

But the king of Egypt said, “Moses and Aaron, why are you taking the people away from their labor? Get back to your work!” Then Pharaoh said, “Look, the people of the land are now numerous, and you are stopping them from working.”

That same day Pharaoh gave this order to the slave drivers and overseers in charge of the people: “You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw. But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy; that is why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’ Make the work harder for the people so that they keep working and pay no attention to lies.”

 

  1. The Lord’s Messengers Deliver His Word (1, 3).

 

  1. The Lord’s Word Is Rejected by the Hard-Hearted (2, 4–5).

 

  1. The Lord’s People Suffer Persecution at the Hands of the Hard-Hearted because of the Lord’s Word (6–9).

 

Main Idea (application): God’s messengers must boldly represent God and his Word to the world. We should not expect the world to immediately recognize the authority of God, and we should not be surprised by lack of initial success. But in the end, God will accomplish his purposes.

“The Righteousness of God Made Known” (Romans 3:21–22a)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday AM, June 11, 2017

 

Romans 3:21–22a (NIV)

21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

 

      1.  The righteousness that comes to us in the Gospel is God’s.

              a.  The Gospel is God’s Gospel.

              b.  The Righteousness is God’s Righteousness.

      2.  The righteousness of God that comes to us in the Gospel was planned from eternity past and testified of in the Old Testament.

              a.  The Gospel is not God’s alternative plan when the Law did not work to save people.

              b.  It was never God’s intention to save people through the Law. The Law brings us a knowledge and conviction of our sinfulness.

              c.  God’s intention to save people by his righteousness was prophesied in the Old Testament.

              d.  We don’t have a full understanding of the Gospel of God without the testimony of the Old Testament Scriptures.

      3.  The righteousness of God that comes to us in the Gospel has now been revealed in this New Covenant era (But now…).

              a.  The righteousness of God that comes to us in the Gospel is not new; it was there testified of in the Old Testament. “But now” that righteousness of God has been fully revealed to us in the person of Jesus Christ – his incarnation, life, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension.

              b.  The “Christ event” introduced a new era in God’s salvation plan. We are now beneficiaries of this New Covenant epoch.

              c.  The righteousness of God that comes to us in the Gospel introduces a new epoch in history, but it also introduces a new epoch in each of our lives personally. For all who are in Christ there was a “Then…” followed by a “But now…”

      4.  The righteousness of God that comes to us in the Gospel comes through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the Law.

              a.  The righteousness of God that we receive in the Gospel is not earned by us; it was earned by Jesus Christ. It is his righteousness that justifies us before our Holy God.

              b.  This righteousness of God in Christ is not obtained by our performance of the deeds of the Law; it is obtained through complete trust and dependence on Jesus Christ.

Psalm 4

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David.

Answer me when I call to you,

my righteous God.

Give me relief from my distress;

have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

How long will you people turn my glory into shame?

How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? 

Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself;

the LORD hears when I call to him.

Tremble and do not sin;

when you are on your beds,

search your hearts and be silent.

Offer the sacrifices of the righteous

and trust in the LORD.

Many, LORD, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”

Let the light of your face shine on us.

Fill my heart with joy

when their grain and new wine abound.

In peace I will lie down and sleep,

for you alone, LORD,

make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4, NIV)

 

1.  A prayer for relief and mercy (v. 1).

  1. Answer me…hear my prayer.
  2. Give me relief…
  3. Have mercy on me…

2.  A call to fear the LORD and trust in Him (vv. 2–5).

  1. Honor the LORD’s chosen servant: David, the King (vv. 2–3).
  2. Fear the LORD and turn from sin (v. 4).
  3. Worship the LORD and trust in Him (v. 5).

3.  A prayer for blessing and joy (vv. 6–7).

  1. LORD, grant your grace and favor (v. 6).
  2. LORD, grant joy (v. 7).

4.  An expression of personal trust in the LORD (v.8).

  1. Peace in the midst of trouble…
  2. Comes from firm confidence in the LORD.

“Back to Egypt” (Exodus 4:18–31)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday PM, June 4, 2017

 

Exodus 4:18–31 (NIV)

18 Then Moses went back to Jethro his father-in-law and said to him, “Let me return to my own people in Egypt to see if any of them are still alive.”

Jethro said, “Go, and I wish you well.”

19 Now the LORD had said to Moses in Midian, “Go back to Egypt, for all those who wanted to kill you are dead.” 20 So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand.

21 The LORD said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go. 22 Then say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son, 23 and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’”

24 At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met Moses and was about to kill him. 25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it. “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. 26 So the LORD let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.)

27 The LORD said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him.         28 Then Moses told Aaron everything the LORD had sent him to say, and also about all the signs he had commanded him to perform.

29 Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites, 30 and Aaron told them everything the LORD had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people, 31 and they believed. And when they heard that the LORD was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.

 

  1. Receptive to Divine Guidance (18–20).

 

  1. Reckoning with the Divine Plan (21–23).

 

  1. Averting Divine Wrath (24–26).

 

  1. Praising Divine Faithfulness (27–31).

“The Universality of Sin” (Romans 3:9–20)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday AM, June 4, 2017

 

Romans 3:9–20 (NIV)

What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. 10 As it is written:

“There is no one righteous, not even one;

11    there is no one who understands;

there is no one who seeks God.

12 All have turned away,

they have together become worthless;

there is no one who does good,

not even one.” 

13 “Their throats are open graves;

their tongues practice deceit.” 

“The poison of vipers is on their lips.” 

14    “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” 

15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;

16    ruin and misery mark their ways,

17 and the way of peace they do not know.” 

18    “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” 

19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

 

  1. All Are Guilty: When it comes to the standard of Divine justice, neither Jews nor Gentiles have an advantage; all are guilty (9).

       2.  All Are Under the Power of Sin: The power and pervasiveness of sin is universal; all are under its grip (10–18).

  1. The ungodliness of sin.
  2. The pervasiveness of sin.
  3. The universality of sin.

       3.  All Have Only One Hope: The human race (Jews and Gentiles) has one and only one hope for salvation from the power of sin and its penalty: not our own attempts at good works but the righteousness of God that comes through faith (19–20).

“Final Remarks” (Titus 3:12–15)

 

12 As soon as I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, because I have decided to winter there. 13 Do everything you can to help Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way and see that they have everything they need. 14 Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.

15 Everyone with me sends you greetings. Greet those who love us in the faith.

Grace be with you all. (Titus 3:12–15, NIV)

 

  1. Provide faithful shepherds for the Lord’s church (12a).

  1. Take practical steps to advance gospel work (12b).

 

because I have decided to winter there.

 

  1. Give sacrificially to provide for gospel workers (13).

Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives.

 

  1. Love your fellow brothers and sisters in the faith (15).

 

Everyone with me sends you greetings. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.

“Giving One’s Life for Another”

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday AM, May 28, 2017

 

John 15:12–13 (NIV)

12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

 

Romans 12:1–21 (NIV)

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” 

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

“Saved in Order to Do Good” (Titus 3:1–11)

3 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone.

At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.

But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 10 Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. 11 You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned. (Titus 3:1–11, NIV)

Luke 7:11–17 (NIV)

11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. 12 As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”

14 Then he went up and touched the bier they were carrying him on, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” 15 The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.

16 They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said. “God has come to help his people.” 17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.

The Gospel Foundation for Godly Living (Titus 2:11–15)

11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you. (Titus 2:11–15, NIV)

“Here Am I, Send Someone Else” (Exodus 4:10–17)
Pastor Cameron Jungels
Eastside Baptist Church
Sunday PM, May 7, 2017

Exodus 4:10–17 (NIV)

10 Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”

11 The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

13 But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”

14 Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you. 15 You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. 16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. 17 But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.”

 
1.    God powerfully overcomes our inabilities for the sake of his mission (10–12).

2.    God graciously accommodates our weaknesses for the sake of his mission (13–17).

“God’s Faithfulness” (Romans 3:1–8)
Pastor Cameron Jungels
Eastside Baptist Church
Sunday AM, May 7, 2017

Romans 3:1–8, NIV
1 What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision?  2 Much in every way! First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God.  
3 What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God's faithfulness?  4 Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge."  
5 But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.)  6 Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world?  7 Someone might argue, "If my falsehood enhances God's truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?"  8 Why not say-- as some slanderously claim that we say-- "Let us do evil that good may result"? Their condemnation is just!

1.    What about the advantages of being one of God’s historic people? (1–2)

4 the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption to sonship; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises.  5 Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen. (Romans 9:4-5, NIV)

2.    What about God’s faithfulness to his promises? (3–4)

32 "Now therefore, our God, the great God, mighty and awesome, who keeps his covenant of love, do not let all this hardship seem trifling in your eyes-- the hardship that has come on us, on our kings and leaders, on our priests and prophets, on our ancestors and all your people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until today.  33 In all that has happened to us, you have remained righteous; you have acted faithfully, while we acted wickedly. (Neh. 9:32-33, NIV)

4 Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. (Psalm 51:4, NIV)

3.    Is God really just? (5–8)

Godly Living in Various Roles in Life (Titus 2:1–10)

2 You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, 10 and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive. (Titus 2:1–10, NIV)

“External vs. Internal Religion” (Romans 2:25–29)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday AM, April 30, 2017

 

Romans 2:25–29 (NIV)

25 Circumcision has value if you observe the law, but if you break the law, you have become as though you had not been circumcised. 26 So then, if those who are not circumcised keep the law’s requirements, will they not be regarded as though they were circumcised? 27 The one who is not circumcised physically and yet obeys the law will condemn you who, even though you have the written code and circumcision, are a lawbreaker.

28 A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. 29 No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God.

 

 1.  External religion, by itself, is of no value and no guarantee of eternal salvation.

 2.  External religion, to have any meaning, must flow from internal religion, that is, the regeneration of the heart that expresses itself in obedience to God and good deeds.

 3.  External religion, by itself, is done for the praise of people; but internal religion that expresses itself in obedience and good deeds is done for the praise of God.

“See the Signs” (Exodus 4:1–9)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Exodus 4:1–9 (NIV)

4 Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you’?”

Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”

“A staff,” he replied.

The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.”

Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it. Then the Lord said to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So Moses reached out and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. “This,” said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared to you.”

Then the Lord said, “Put your hand inside your cloak.” So Moses put his hand into his cloak, and when he took it out, the skin was leprous—it had become as white as snow.

“Now put it back into your cloak,” he said. So Moses put his hand back into his cloak, and when he took it out, it was restored, like the rest of his flesh.

Then the Lord said, “If they do not believe you or pay attention to the first sign, they may believe the second. But if they do not believe these two signs or listen to you, take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground. The water you take from the river will become blood on the ground.”

 

1.  The One True God Has Power over the Animal Kingdom (2–5).

 2.  The One True God Has Power over Human Life, both to Destroy and to Heal (6–7).

 3.  The One True God Has Power over the Forces of Nature (vv. 8–9).

 4.  The One True God Has Called His Servant and Invested Him with Power to Demonstrate that He is the Lord’s Representative (1, 5, 8) .
