How Mom's Can Change the World

Pastor Barry Benard


Description:THE TIMOTHY PROJECTHow Moms Can Change the World1. STAUNCH TESTIMONYI’m reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and then your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.Second Timothy 1:5Each of you must turn from your sins and be baptized in the Name of Christ for their forgiveness. As you do, you’ll receive the Holy Spirit – God’s greatest gift. And this promise is for you and your children, as well as for all whom the Lord has called, no matter how far away they may be.Acts 2:38-39Let each generation tell its children what glorious things the Lord does.Psalm 145:42. SPIRITUAL TRAININGBut as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Second Timothy 3:14-15Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds – tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.Deuteronomy 11:18-19Her words are filled with wisdom and love as she gently instructs others.Proverbs 31:26

Description:Challenge # 2:INVESTMENT1. Assimilate Scriptural PreceptsI have embedded Your Word deep within my heart to prevent me from rebelling or acting disobediently toward You.Psalm 119:11Every word in scripture is inspired by God and essential for knowing Truth, exposing error, correcting mistakes and learning to do what pleases Him. In short, the Bible is how the Lord perfects and prepares us for any noble purpose He may have.Second Timothy 3:16-172. Appropriate Spiritual PowerYou’ll receive power once the Holy Spirit has come upon you. Acts 1:8I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.Ephesians 1:18-19a


Pastor Barry Benard


Description:Challenge #1:INVENTORY1. HONEST ASSESSMENTGod has shown me such amazing grace – and that’s also why I caution you against thinking more highly of yourselves than you should. Rather, maintain humility by properly evaluating yourself in accordance with the amount of faith He’s given you.Romans 12:3Take a good, long look at yourselves and ask some tough questions. Does how you live truly reflect that Jesus is alive and at work within you? If not, perhaps He isn’t.Second Corinthians 13:52. HUMBLE ACKNOWLEDGMENTI’m in the wrong, O Lord – it’s my fault. And now I’m haunted by all the wicked things you’ve seen me do. Each one was an offense against You, and thus You’re completely justified when you judge and discipline me. Psalm 51:3-4Those who deny or hide wrongdoing will answer for it, but those who confess and abandon their sin will receive mercy.Proverbs 28:13

The Deceptive Hurrah

Pastor Barry Benard


Description:Lesson #2:THE DECEPTIVE HURRAHMatthew 21:7-111. THEY SOUGHT REVOLUTIONAs they heard these things, He proceeded to tell a parable, because He was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. Luke 19:11Many rely on their weapons of war to feel strong and safe while we trust only in the mighty Name of our God. But when they stumble and fall, we’ll still be on our feet marching forward!Psalm 20:7-8There would be no point in acquiring something – up to and including the earth itself – if it came at the expense of your immortal soul! Just what would you take in exchange for all that you are?Matthew 16:262. BUT SPURNED REPENTANCEIf my people, who are called by my Name, will but humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I’ll hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their country. Second Chronicles 7:14Jesus knew that some of the Jews were spiritually prideful and thus looked down on others while thinking too highly of themselves. As a result, He told them a parable:“There were once two men who went up to the Temple to pray. The first was a highly-regarded Pharisaic Rabbi, while the second was a Roman collaborator and tax-collector.”“Inside, the Rabbi stood off by himself and began to pray aloud, saying: ‘Lord, I’m so very thankful I’m not a thief, extortionist, adulterer, or worst of all, a publican. On the contrary, you know that I fast twice a week and never forget to tithe!’”“When the Rabbi’s prayer was over, the poor tax collector just hung his head in shame and started beating on his own chest in anguish. As he did, he cried out to heaven and said: ‘May God have mercy on me – I am a sinful man!’”Jesus then ended the story unexpectedly, saying, “Only one of those two men left the Temple with God’s approval – and it wasn’t the Pharisee, but rather, the tax collector. That’s because the Lord humbles the exalted and exalts the humble.”Luke 18:9-14

Expectation #4 Conviction

Pastor Barry Benard


Description:Expectation #4: CONVICTIONKeep on fighting the good fight with astrong faith and clear conscience. Formany have turned away from these andare now spiritually desolate as a result.First Timothy 1:18b-191. Through TROUBLEBlessed is the man who remains steadfast undertrial, for when he has stood the test he will receivethe crown of life, which God has promised tothose who love Him. James 1:12God is our refuge and strength, a very presenthelp in trouble. Therefore we will not fearthough the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Psalm 46:1-3Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Ephesians 6:132. Through TIMENo, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven because of what Christ Jesus did for us. Philippians 3:13-14Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:12-13If we remain faithful to the Lord until the end – trusting with the same assurance we had when first saved – we’ll have a share in everything that Christ personified and promised. Hebrews 3:14

Expectation #3 Contrast

Pastor Barry Benard


Description:1. From the DEPRAVITY of SINNERS“Separate yourselves from the corrupt practices of the wicked and stand apart from them,” says the Lord. “Refuse to even touch their defilement and you’ll be welcomed as My people.”Second Corinthians 6:17Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. First Corinthians 6:9-11Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.Second Timothy 2:212. From the DECEIT of SATANWhen someone disagrees with you, correct them – but do it with humility and patience. That way, you’ll always leave room for God to open their eyes, see sin for what it really is, embrace the Truth, and be freed from enslavement to a cruel taskmaster – the Devil himself.Second Timothy 2:25-26The “god” of this world has darkened the minds of unbelievers so completely that they’re unable to perceive the light of the gospel in the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.Second Corinthians 4:4I’m worried that, just as the serpent seduced Eve with a chorus of manipulative lies in the Garden, all of you may be tricked into abandoning the simple purity of your devotion to Christ.Second Corinthians 11:3Those who sin habitually belong to Satan – for evil has guided and defined him from the very beginning. God’s Son, on the other hand, came to destroy the Devil’s sinful works.First John 3:8

Proverbs 10:12DISTRUSTIf your enemy is hungry, give them food to eat; if they’re thirsty, give them water to drink. In doing this, you’ll heap burning coals on their head, and the Lord will reward you. Proverbs 25:21-22UNBELIEFJust as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”John 13:34-352. It Returns BLESSINGWe love because he first loved us.First John 4:19Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! Psalm 133:1So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected within us, so that we may have confidence on Judgment Day.First John 4:16-17
