STICK WITH YOUR SPHERE
STICK WITH YOUR SPHERE

2 Corinthians 10:13 "We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us"

Three times Paul uses the Greek word "canon" or "measuring stick" to describe his God-given responsibilities

God had "measured out" the areas he was responsible for, and the areas that he wasn't

He labored in the one and stayed out of the other

Each of us has also been given a "sphere" that we are responsible for before God

Some verses that come to mind are...
"She has done what she could." (Mk 14:8)
and
"As much as depends on you" (Rom 12:18)

Which means...

Each of us also have "spheres" we are NOT responsible for

Bringing to mind a few other verses...
"He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears." (Pr 26:17)
1 Thessalonians 4:11 puts it the most bluntly, "Mind your own business"

We need to know the difference between our "sphere" of responsibility and someone else's

If we neglect the first
Or inject ourselves into the second
There are consequences

Jesus gave His disciples a parable about neglecting our "sphere" (Matthew 25:14-30)
His summary is:
"For to everyone who has [been faithful], more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have [faithfulness], even what he has [been given] will be taken away." (Mt 25:29)

While Peter commands us not to meddle in someone else's "sphere"
"Let none of you suffer as...a busybody in other people's matters" (1 Pt 4:15)

Today, ask the Lord which "sphere" He holds you responsible for and
"Be diligent to know the state of YOUR flocks, and attend to YOUR herds" (Pr 27:23)

Spend your time laboring where you are responsible
Avoid the trap of tending to another man's flock

Because "each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor" (1 Cor 3:8)

"For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus' sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us."

2 Corinthians 4:5-7
About
back to top
This Fellowship is a body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. Our desire is to worship Him and know Him more fully.

We are a non-denominational fellowship that rests firmly in God's grace. We believe that His unconditional love led Him to the cross where He died for the sins of the world and rose from the dead three days later, overcoming death and sin for those who believe in Him.

We believe that the evidence of a maturing church is faith, hope, and love. Therefore, we emphasize the teaching of the Scriptures as God's inspired, infallible, inerrant Word that our faith might grow. We know faith comes by hearing and learning the Word of God. We also live in the anticipation of the imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The fruit of the Spirit is love and it is by our love for one another that the world will know that we are followers of Jesus Christ.

We gather to lift the name of Jesus in worship and praise. He is our hope! May the Lord bless you as we worship and learn from Him together.
