Arise and Go
Acts 9:1-19 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
God doesn’t want you to stay in the same place. If one stay sin the same place very long, one becomes stagnant. God is always trying to move His people forward. God told many of men to get up and go. We all have a responsibility to God to do the same. When you get to a place where you feel like you can’t go any further, get up and go to God. God will get your attention no matter what it takes. If He’s told you to do something, DO IT! Don’t wait till He has to chastise you in order to make you do it. Now Jonah had a mission but he had to go thru a very long journey all because he didn’t want to do it. He refused to get up and go. He instead got up and ran away. For Jonah it took a whale to swallow him before he came to realize what he had to do.

By Him
Colossians 1:15-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
It’s by you or anything else that you will get to Heaven. It’s only by Him, Jesus Christ. You will either go His way or you won’t go at all. Who is He? He is the image of the invisible God. Jesus didn’t just exist when He was first born unto Mary & Joseph. Jesus was with God in the beginning. Jesus is the reflection of God. When we look at a pool of water we might see the reflection of the moon. It proves that there is a real object. He is the first born of every creature. Everything that is a part of us and everything that we know was started with Jesus. It is by Jesus Christ that we have ALL things. Christ is the creator of the creature. All of these things we know that there had to be a creator. All of these things we see we can’t deny that there was a designer. If Jesus Christ is the creator of all things and He created you, then who do you belong to? We are all accountable to our creator and must yield to Him. In the beginning there was nothing and He created something from nothing. When He created it He called everything good. It wasn’t until humans sinned that it became bad. Not only did He create it but He continues it. So far, everyday the sun rises and the sun sets. At any given point during the day or night we never think about making our hearts to beat, and yet it continues to beat. Grass as simple as it is, He makes it grow. No one planted the grass on the high mountains. No one is watering it or fertilizing it and yet it grows. The church is kept going by Him. He is the head of the body. We are NOT the head, we are the body. No Christ in the church, no power in the church. Christ made the church and put the body together. He has reconciled all things for Himself. Jesus loves us. We are just a part of His creation and yet He chose humans to give a living soul to. Everything that He created fist came from Him. Trees. In order to have a tree one must have a seed. In order to have a seed one must have a tree. Either way, who made the tree or seed? It wasn’t by accident that these things came to be. The gospel is very simple. Believe in Christ and you shall be saved. If you’ve found any other way, you’re lost and going to Hell. The Bible is simple, if it’s wrong, it’s wrong; if it’s right, it’s right. It hasn’t changed nor will it change.

The Essentials of the Christian Life
1 Corinthians 13:13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Social distancing. Keep yourself 6 feet away or further from another. Shelter at home or safer at home. Just means to stay at home as much as you can. We hear these terms a lot here lately and are things that we’ve not heard about before. But one term that stuck is the word essential. The leaders decided what was essential during this time. Businesses were forced to close while other could remain open just because they were declared essential or not. The Essentials of the Christian Life Everyday when we wake we know that there are things that are essential. Now God news the very thing that you need. Others are watching and looking at you and wanting to see hope. Galatians 5:22-23 Love, Joy, Peace, Long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. A peach tree produces peaches and peaches only. It can’t bear apples because it’s not an apple tree. Just the same as a Christian. A lot of folks call themselves Christians but if what comes out of you is NOT Christian then you are confused. Those wonder why they can’t live like they think a Christian should. Those are trying to produce something that they simply can’t because they are missing the most important at part, being saved. Christians are often pruned in order to bear more fruit and they are loved. A Christian doesn’t have to work to produce their fruit. Just as a peach tree, at times it will produce a fruit that may have a worm, or be bruised but it’s still a peach. It will not produce an apple. The Holy Spirit knows nothing but to work in a Christian and therefore produce the fruit. We but just the tree, He pushes out the fruit. Faith, hope, and charity, those three abide within a Christian. But the greatest is charity. There are essentials in a Christian life. Faith Faith is the evidence of things unseen. We know the wind blows but you can’t see it. But the evidence that it’s there is because we see the wind moving things. As a Christian your faith should always be growing. God always helps with those things that you can’t see, He helps your unbelief. But, we have to be a useable tool, we must focus upon Him. We are still learning to allowing Him to be in control. Faith is Essential! Faith without works is dead. What is the works? In the story of Abraham we see that God told him to take his son to be sacrificed. The works was Abraham following thru with it and obeying God. When God told Moses to stand still and watch Him work. If Moses did stand still then God couldn’t work. Moses making a choice to stand still was his works. Where is your faith? Hope Faith and hope go together. The very things that of your faith is your hope. For a Christian, Christ is the object of our hope. Our bible, we believe it to be truth, the Word of God, the object of hope is written within it’s pages. Now in this book we read of place, Heaven. Our faith in the object, Heaven gives us our hope isn’t Heaven. Romans 8:24, seek your hope if you’re a struggling Christian. People without hope become depressed, negative, and rough. They’ve allowed things of this world to interfere with their Spirit. Job’s wife told him to curse God and get it over with when he had lost everything in his life. Job while in his pain told his wife that she talked like a foolish woman. He knew the hope because he had faith. He stated, if a man die will he live again to which he responded to himself and stated yes. The world has faith but they don’t have Christ. They have the ability to believe, it’s what they believe in that’s wrong. Love Love is simply charity. Christ is the ultimate charity giver as He gave His life for the lost. He is Agape love, a love that not because of but in spite of. John 3:16, same love. In 1 John we know that God IS love. Love is something that we can’t understand. Loves goes further than we will ever know. From the beginning God gave the commandment that you should love God with everything within you. One should also love their neighbor as themselves. All of the other 8 commandments could be covered with just those 2 commandments. You first thought in the morning when you wake should always be to love God and then love your neighbor. As a Christian, one of the things that should come easy is to love God and neighbors. God is always helping with the loving. Essential to the Christians life, faith, hope, and love. Do you struggle with doing those things?

Condemnation
John 3:16-19 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
The word condemnation is the action of condemning someone to a sentence. Now God does not condemn. The sentence of death, condemnation, was given with Adam and Eve. The single most simplest law was not to eat of one single tree. Both Adam and Eve broke this law and therefore were sentenced for being guilty. That condemnation was death. We are already under condemnation due to the sin that we live in. The sin of Adam and Eve was just the first one. Jesus did not come to condemn the world but to save it. Our own sin separates us from Jesus. John 3:17, those that believe in Jesus is saved but those that do not believe are lost, condemned. Many look at religion as a form of condemnation. People do not have to work at condemnation because they were born into it. One must be saved from the condemnation of death. Others get confused with conviction and condemnation. Conviction is when God points out the sin that has been made against God. Conviction is God reminding you that you must live Holy. People are convicted of all kinds of sins. Anything that in violation of God is a sin. Noah God spoke to Noah because God searched all others and their hearts were evil. As we know the story, God told Noah that a flood was coming and he was to prepare. For 120 years Noah invited all those he passed. All of those people ignored Noah and yet God still had grace. God created a way out, a way of escape. Sodom and Gomorrah God told Abraham that he was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham began to pray about saving them and God would come back and say He would save them. God is NOT trying to place condemnation because it’s already been placed. They saved only a few from the destruction but it wasn’t because of not being warned first. 2 Peter 2, God wants the drug addict to be saved. God sent His ONLY son to suffer and be sacrificed because He loved us. God wants each person to be saved from certain death. The condemnation is that light has come into the world, but people love darkness over that light. God will come to you, you can’t just go out and search for Him. He does the inviting, it’s not the other way around with salvation. The law is not the condemnation. It’s only a rule that’s set for our safety. The condemnation is the love of the evil. In the story of the woman that the Pharisees brought before Jesus. This woman clearly broke the law and was guilty beyond guilt. Now Jesus simply proved to them that they ALL were sinners, they’d ALL broke the law. Now if God purpose is to condemn or hate, then why did Jesus not just slaw them all? He proved to them and to her that her own kind were the condemners. Man wants to condemn man and we bring justification for that condemnation. Jesus had every opportunity to say to her that He condemned her but He didn’t do that. He didn’t say that the law was wrong or to do away with the law. On the cross there were 2 thieves. One of them gave Jesus a hard time. The other felt conviction and knew that he deserved what he was getting. He then asked Jesus to remember him on his death. So while Jesus was dying on the cross, He still loved and saved. His last action on earth was to save a man. God does not hate you. He’s trying to save you. When He calls you name, knocks on your hearts door, answer Him. Ask Him to come in. In the end at your death the lost will say amen to their own condemnation. THEIR OWN condemnation, not Gods.

I've Never Been Worthy!
Luke 15:11-24 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
First and foremost, if you think you’ve gone too far and God doesn’t love you, you’re wrong. Now in this story of this rebellious youth, we see that once he realized that he had hit his brick wall, he wanted to go back. Was this youth saved or lost? Well, in this story it’s not clearly stated but the youth knew he had a father. A lost person denies the fact that they have a father, a savior. We’ve likely heard a lot of stories about the prodigal son, about him coming back. But what we want you to see is that once he came to his senses, he thought he was unworthy of his fathers love. Now in our lives we all know of people where they’ve been in a desperate place where they’ve “spent it all” in the world. Some have continued in that path, but other have turned back and went to their fathers house. How many of you have ever felt the weight of the sinful shame you’ve created? You realize that there are none worthy of Gods love. We are a constant sinner regardless of our situation. John the Baptist that had nothing knew that he was nothing compared to Jesus. He was completely humbled by Jesus. This story we see that this youth walked into the city with pride, riches, and knowing he had a father that loved him and gave him what he wanted. But, with humility he walked back home in his own shame. Once he got home his father looked beyond his sons wrongdoings. His son still felt the guilt and shame but his father pushed it aside. The world wants one to think they can just go thru the motions while at church but when it’s in your heart, that’s the problem. There’s never been a day that you should boast about yourself and what you think you’re worthy of. Don’t be ashamed to come to God, but, if you feel shame for what you’ve done, then you’re on the right track towards God. Keep walking towards Him. In one story we read about a woman that was on a mission. She broke customs and went into a room filled with men, removed her head covering and washed Jesus’ feet. We see that she didn’t bring water but used her very tears while she wept in her humbleness. We also see that she made it a point that she wasn’t taking nothing back cause she broke that container that held ALL of the anointing oils. Being born again is not based on our works or our worth. Paul stated that he was the chief of sinners and yet did a lot of amazing things. Where does that leave you, us? Peter thought he was worth it. But Jesus began to explain the details of what marks he missed. Never treated him, customary kiss, washed his feet, yet this woman had not stopped as soon as Jesus walked in. We live in a culture where people want a pat on the back for thinking they done good things, a self righteous generation. The only one that is worthy is Jesus Christ. He did everything for you.
