Jesus recognized this need in our text. People were clamoring after Jesus and the disciples so that they had no time even to eat. We need to take a break. As the ball players in the various competitive games must take time out for many reasons, we must also take time out in the spiritual games of life. Paraphrasing Shakespeare in Macbeth, we are all players in the game of life strutting and fretting our hours upon the playing field of time and then are seen no more. Why do we need to take time out in the game of life?

First of all, we need to call time out for rest, recuperation, and refreshment. The ball players call time out at times just to rest and refresh themselves. Especially in games like football and basketball where tremendous energy and effort are expended, time must be called out for players to catch their breath, rest, and refresh themselves. Our bodies, minds, and spirits, need rest. God is the only one who does not need rest. He stays awake day and night to see about us. He neither slumbers nor sleeps. If God neither slumbers nor sleeps, there is no need for both of us to stay awake.

But we are made for rest. Even Jesus when he was on earth, clothed in human flesh needed rest. He got weary and tired.

He experienced every thing we go through. Some people are what we call workaholics.

We are not like that commercial for the battery that keeps on going and going. But even batteries give out sometimes. Even batteries have to take a time out. Even machines need a rest.

It increases their effectiveness. The ball players need to call time out so they can rest their weary bodies, and recuperate from the activity. Sermon Topics: Restoration , Holiness. Since God created the universe and everything in it, the people of Fellowship owe all that we are and have to Him and therefore should continually worship and praise Him for His greatness and provision.

As a result, all human beings are born alienated from God, corrupted in every aspect of their being e. The supreme need of all human beings is to be reconciled to the God under whose just and holy wrath we stand; the only hope of all human beings is the undeserved love of this same God, who alone can rescue us and restore us to Himself by grace. At Fellowship we teach the truth about our sinfulness to show our guilt before God and dependence upon His undeserved grace as our sole source of acceptance before Him and our strength for the daily battle against our flesh.

We believe that from all eternity God determined in grace to save a great multitude of guilty sinners from every tribe and language and people and nation, and to this end foreknew them and chose them without any merit in them or anything done by them. We believe that God justifies and sanctifies those who by grace have faith in Jesus and that He will one day glorify them—all to the praise of His glorious grace. Utter folly to the world, even though it is the power of God to those who are being saved, this good news is Christological, centering on the cross and resurrection.

The Gospel is not proclaimed if Christ is not proclaimed, and the authentic Christ has not been proclaimed if His death and resurrection are not central to that proclamation. Everything we teach and do at Fellowship must be rooted in this Gospel message so that it may be faithfully shared by our people at home and across the world. We believe that, moved by love and in obedience to His Father, the eternal Son became human: the Word became flesh, fully God and fully human being, one Person in two natures.

The man Jesus, the promised Messiah of Israel, was conceived through the miraculous agency of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He perfectly obeyed His heavenly Father, lived a sinless life, performed miraculous signs, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead on the third day, and ascended into heaven. We believe that by His incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and ascension, Jesus Christ acted as our representative and substitute. He did this so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God: on the cross He canceled sin, satisfied the wrath of God, and, by bearing the full penalty of our sins, reconciled to God all those who believe.

By His resurrection Christ Jesus was vindicated by His Father, broke the power of death and defeated Satan who once had power over it, and brought everlasting life to all His people; by His ascension He has been forever exalted as Lord and has prepared a place for us to be with Him. We believe that salvation is found in no one else but Jesus, for there is no other name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Because God chose the lowly things of this world, the despised things, the things that are not, to nullify the things that are, no human being can ever boast before Him—Christ Jesus has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.

At Fellowship, Jesus Christ and Him crucified and resurrected is at the very center of our proclamation and worship.

We believe that Christ, by His obedience and death, fully discharged the debt of all those who are justified by their faith in Him. Inasmuch as Christ was given by the Father for us, and His obedience and punishment were accepted in place of our own, freely and not for anything in us, this justification is solely of free grace, in order that both the exact justice and the rich grace of God might be glorified in the justification of sinners. At Fellowship we believe that a zeal for worship and obedience must flow from this free gift of justification.

We believe that our salvation, attested in all Scripture and secured by Jesus Christ, is applied to His people by the Holy Spirit. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and by His powerful and mysterious work regenerates spiritually dead sinners, awakening them to repentance and faith. In Him they are baptized into union with the Lord Jesus, such that they are justified before God by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.

The Holy Spirit indwells every believer at conversion, and never departs from the church, nor from the feeblest of saints, but is ever present to testify of Jesus Christ. As believers yield their will to His, His fruit begins to grow in them for the world to see. The Holy Spirit is Himself the down payment of the promised inheritance, and in this age indwells, guides, instructs, convicts, equips, revives, comforts, and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.

We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit at work in the church of the first century are available today, manifested as God sovereignly determines, and are to be pursued and practiced in an orderly manner. The gifts are essential to the mission of the Church in the world today. At Fellowship, we will strive to walk in the power of the Spirit, and not in our flesh, welcoming His power and guidance as we seek His will for our church. Statement: Spiritual Gifts. We believe that those who have been saved by the grace of God through union with Christ by faith and through regeneration by the Holy Spirit enter the kingdom of God and delight in the blessings of the new covenant: the forgiveness of sins, the inward transformation that awakens a desire to glorify, trust, and obey God, and the prospect of the glory yet to be revealed.

The good works that believers walk in, accomplished by faith, constitute indispensable evidence of saving grace. Living as salt in a world that is decaying and light in a world that is dark, believers should neither withdraw into seclusion from the world, nor become indistinguishable from it.

  • The church is the body of Christ and therefore is His primary instrument to continue His ministry on the earth, even in its imperfection. And although Christ has called and gifted certain leaders to equip the saints to do the work of the ministry, every Christ-follower is called to be a minister of the Gospel to the world around them.

    Crucially, this Gospel we cherish has both personal and corporate dimensions, neither of which may properly be overlooked. Christ Jesus is our peace: He has not only brought about peace with God but also peace between alienated peoples.
