|Long Suffering But Not Ever Suffering|
|2 Peter 3:3-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God only promised one opportunity to be saved, only one time will He invite you. We should be thankful for the chastening that God does to us. The chastening indicates that He loves us and wants what's best for us in His image. God shows us patience over and over and yet He doesn't have to. There are times we as Christians choose to go against what God has told us to do. During those times of disobedience God is longsuffering to us. At times we seem to think that if we can't see Him then we won't get caught, just the same as a child acts away from their parents. But God is all knowing and can see everywhere and everything. During those times of disobedience there will come a time where Gods longsuffering will come to an end and He will draw a line in the sand. He will show up when you're least expecting Him and place a stopping point. If you choose to step over the line that He has drawn then you've forced Him to remove the problem. Just as a disobedient child and a loving parent. The child will be warned to obey but there will come a time when the child disobeys to the point that the parent must intervene and remove the child's pleasures. If you're a child of a God and are living in disobedience, it's no surprise when He deals with you. God is raising children and He is trying to grow us into His likeness. If you're walking thru your Christian life and you know God is chastening you, count it a blessing because you're one of His. Gods patiences does and will run out. Don't push Him till His patiences runs out on you.|

|Because He Is Worth It|
|Hebrews 13:7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A Christian leader is one that leads by example and by respect. Great Christian leaders that have led by examples is Henry Webb. He lived almost 3.5 miles away from the church and would walk to the church house each and every time the doors were open. He walked thru all kinds of elements because God was worth it to him. A faithful member. The sad truth is that today, most have a problem getting out of bed when it's cold outside even though our vehicles are heated as well as the church. People are watching whether you want them to or not.
Henry Webb's obituary: "Henry Webb was born June 29, 1904, and departed this life Dec. 2, 1989, being 84 years, 5 months, and 3 days of age.
Henry professed faith in Christ and joined the New Providence Primitive Baptist Church on November 9, 1969, and was baptized November 16, 1969.
He was a very faithful member of his church and loved it and the people of the church.
He labored in the building of the New Providence Church both in the first building and in the present building, the church was his life as long as he was able to attend."We should examine ourselves to make sure that what we show to the world is a godly life. God needs leaders in His church. Are you willing to be a leader? Are you able to? You must first be able before you can be a leader.

|Three Points to Salvation|
|Genesis 1:26-27 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Why do you need to be saved? Because the soul is eternal and it must live forever somewhere. What do you have that needs to be saved? Gen 1:26 God wasn't alone. Gen 2:4-9 we are a breathing soul which will never die. We are different that animals because we have a soul. We are special, formed out of His image. Gen 2:15-17 God gave Adam one rule and it was to not eat from the tree of good and evil. But he did and therefore was cursed, death was then pronounced upon the rest of the earth. Sin entered in to this world from one man. John 1:1-17 Christ was with God in the very beginning. God loves each and every person. He loves His creation but we as humans are very precious to Him more over than the rest of His creation. The worse criminal in the world still has a living soul. Why do you have to be saved? Because God loves you.|

|Jonah 4:1-11 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|God will take us thru things that will break our pride. Things that break our pride of thinking that we know more than God. Jonah thought he knew better than God even after the thousands repented. Jonah got mad at God when He showed mercy. God had already showed His mercy towards Jonah. We are the same at times when we look at others and think that another doesn't deserve His mercy. Jonah tried to watch what was going to take place after he preached to Ninevah and God took care of him and protected him from the heat. In his prideful arrogance he forgot about what took place and felt that the city should have been destroyed. How often do we go thru troubles and trials of our own making because we won't soften our hearts and do what God has said? Don't let yourself get in the way of Gods mercies. Repent of your sins. Turn away from your sins. How many times do you come to church mad at another person thinking they shouldn't have Gods mercy? All along knowing we NEVER deserved Gods mercies ourself.|

|The Deep Well|
|John 4:5-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The well is deep and never runs out of grace and mercy. If you've ever been truly thirsty you'd do just about anything to get a drop of water. The well is always there. Many time Christians go thirsty on purpose because we choose to. We have every opportunity to get a drink of living water at any given time but always during a church service. We do NOT have to go thirsty. The well is deep which means it will never run dry. When you get dried up and beyond parched you will begin to hunt and crave a drink of water no matter the condition of the water.|
