  1. JT – “So here we go… in our time for WHAT ABOUT THIS…  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…


  1. JTQuestion ONE


Why is loyalty to the local church so important? Can’t a Christian be a true follower of Christ without being part of the local church body?


  1. Bob
  • On-Another’s
  • Listing of local church
  • “The Church” = entire body of Christ
  • Non – spectator rather a participant
  • Submission to leadership


Ephesians 4:11–16 (ESV) — 11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.


  1. JT – Question Two…


What do we do “mentally” to avoid neglecting our duties to the local church?


  1. Bob


Concerning the local church –

  • encourage and support your pastor, make it a point to be present whenever there is teaching –
  • encouraging those who teach, making sure you look at outside ministries as supplements and not substitutes, even seek recommendations from the pastor and church leaders as to what outside ministries they would recommend,      ((((any outside ministry that does not support the local church – avoid)))
  • and above all support the local church first. Anything you give elsewhere should be over and above your regular giving to the local church.
  1. (JT) Third Question …. Turning to the physical aspect of life….


How important are goals in physical side of life?


  1. Bob
  • Goals
  • Realistic
  • Bit size portions
