The Twelve Laws of Building a Healthy Growing
Ministry
  • The Law of Dependency

3
The Law of Dependency
  • Growing churches are characterized by regular and
    spontaneous times of prayer, fasting, and genuine
    repentance both corporately and among individuals
    as a normal part of their culture.
  • Text Luke 111-13

4
I. Objective of this Session
5
I. Objective of this Session
  • To help pastors realize that a vital spiritual
    life is at the core of growing churches. Vital
    spirituality does not occur by accident.

6
II. Major Teaching Points
7
  • Very early in the morning, while it was still
    dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off
    to a solitary place, where he prayed.

Mark 135 (NIV)
8
II. Major Teaching Points
  • a. Jesus modeled for us, dependency.
  • b. Jesus had to refocus and remember His purpose.

9
  • 1One day Jesus was praying in a certain place.
    When he finished, one of his disciples said to
    him, Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught
    his disciples.

Luke 111-13 (NIV)
10
  • 2He said to them, When you pray,
    say Father, hallowed be your name, your
    kingdom come.
  • 3Give us each day our daily bread. 4Forgive
    us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who
    sins against us.
  • And lead us not into temptation.

Luke 111-13 (NIV)
11
  • 5Then he said to them, Suppose one of you has a
    friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says,
    Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 6because
    a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and
    I have nothing to set before him.
  • 7Then the one inside answers, Dont bother me.
    The door is already locked, and my children are
    with me in bed. I cant get up and give you
    anything.

Luke 111-13 (NIV)
12
  • 8I tell you, though he will not get up and give
    him the bread because he is his friend, yet
    because of the mans boldness he will get up and
    give him as much as he needs.
  • 9So I say to you Ask and it will be given to
    you seek and you will find knock and the door
    will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks
    receives he who seeks finds and to him who
    knocks, the door will be opened.

Luke 111-13 (NIV)
13
  • 11Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a
    fish, will give him a snake instead? 12Or if he
    asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13If
    you then, though you are evil, know how to give
    good gifts to your children, how much more will
    your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to
    those who ask him!

Luke 111-13 (NIV)
14
II. Major Teaching Points
  • c. How do we connect with the Father as Jesus
    did?
  • - God is our Abba a term of endearment and
    informality, literally translated papa or
    daddy.
  • - Only someone who deeply esteems the
    relationship will feel unthreatened to call in
    the middle of the night.

15
II. Major Teaching Points
  • c. How do we connect with the Father as Jesus
    did?
  • - Ask, Hell answer.
  • - Come to the HOW MUCH MORE God.
  • - Accept we have nothing to bring to God.

16
II. Major Teaching Points
  • d. Vital spirituality must be modeled (Luke
    640).

17
  • A student is not above his teacher, but everyone
    who is fully trained will be like his teacher.

Luke 640 (NIV)
18
II. Major Teaching Points
  • d. Vital spirituality must be modeled (Luke
    640).
  • e. Vital spirituality must be taught.
  • f. Vital spirituality must be practiced
    throughout the life of the church.

19
III. Research
20
III. Research
  • In churches where prayer is viewed as an
    inspiring experience rather than an obligation or
    duty their was a very high correlation to the
    quality and quantity of the churchs growth (NCD,
    26).

21
IV. Practical Implementation
22
IV. Practical Implementation
  • a. A pastors personal devotional life, MARRIAGE
    and family must model for the congregation what
    you are asking God to do in them.
  • b. The leadership environment of prayer, SHARING,
    fasting and repentance must be vibrant.

23
IV. Practical Implementation
  • c. CRISIS provides great opportunities to respond
    in prayer, fasting and dependency before God.
  • d. There must be built into the life and
    structure of the church a dependency upon God
    with SENSITIVITY to what the Spirit is doing.

24
IV. Practical Implementation
  • Think through...
  • - How do we keep prayer and dependency fresh in
    the services?
  • - How do we keep helping people to see that we
    desperately need God?
  • - When do you teach on prayer?
  • - When do we block off time to pray?

25
IV. Practical Implementation
  • Think through...
  • - How do we build prayer into the structures of
    the church?

    relationships, finances or lack of fruit.
