|Dining With God|
|John 12:1-3 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Gal 2:22, Christ lives in us if you've been saved. Hopefully when you've come to the house of God you've prepared to dine with God. There are times that the meal that God has prepared isn't as sweet as we think it should be. We shouldn't turn our nose up to it as its good for us. John 6:35, God is the bread of life. When one comes to eat, Christ will satisfy. Family is good but Gods family is so much better. They work when no one is watching and uplifts others in Christ thru Christ and their obedience.
Worship is a must. Some of us get out of worship but we find ourselves down and needing to go back to worship. Sometimes we think we can do it ourselves, but we can't.
Salvation is the best thing from the meal. Have you ever seen someone else's salvation and their excitement? If a Christian denies Christ then you will become a stumbling block to others.
Martha is hospitable. Martha was a busy and was serving others. God blessed her with a gift of serving others. You should be welcoming as Martha when it comes to your church. She was practical, straight to the point. We should be to the point when it comes to sharing Christ with others. We shouldn't speak with words of great elegance only to confuse those that don't understand them.
Mary was a humble person. She was one of the first ones to the tomb of Christ. Mary was usually always found at the feet of Jesus. John 20:16, referred to Jesus as her Master. She was filled with 7 Devils when Jesus met her to which He promptly removed, Mark 1:22-24. 1 John 5:8, what God gives nothing can take away. We should be in great awe of what He does.
Lazarus sat at the table with Jesus the one that had just raised him from the dead. Just imagine what he would have thought. While Martha and Mary served Jesus and the table while Lazarus sat and thought of the one that raised him. John 17:1

|Romans 6:1-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Don't allow your old bones to run your life. The foot of the cross is always level. The devil usually comes with you with the same things over and over again. John 10:10 tells us that Satan is all about destruction. Can you recognized the grace of God? Psa 103:8; 12-14 has it ever crossed your mind what might have been if Jesus hadn't come into your life when He did? Salvation is not a license to sin. We should protect our witness from Satan. Grace came because Jesus knew us therefore we must be born again. No matter how old you are in Christ, you should still have a conviction of sin. We as Christians should be in constant pursuit of perfection. John 16:7-11 there is no amount of parental push that could convict one of their sins. Only God can convict one of their sins as God knows the heart. The Holy Spirit must be at work before one can be saved. John 16:9 unbelief is the main culprit and the most basic of sins. James 4:7 will always make the Devil mad. Eph 4:21-32 always speak the truth. We should never let the day end being mad at someone. Theft should never be a part of a Christians life. A Christian should work in order to receive for the giving to others in need.|

|Are You Ready|
|Matthew 25:1-13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|No man knows the hour or the day when Christ will come back. If you knew the day, what kind of person would you be? The influences that your fellow church members hold is a great deal to God and to others. All one has to do is to be ready. Just be ready to meet God with salvation. We as Christians are to be looking for His second coming. The unprepared are simply called foolish, for show. How many times do you enter into Gods presence unprepared? One must be called in order to be saved. The wise makes preparation doing all that's required. Acts 1:7 it doesn't matter if we knew the time or not in Christ's coming. Does the Holy Spirit truly dwell in you? The Word must be preached and it MUST cut or hurt when preached because it's to help and to reproof. It's sharper than any two edged sword. If it doesn't hurt, then it's not the Word of God that's being preached. 1 Tim 5:19 we should be cleaned and prepared. Is there anyone that you can think of that keeps their lamps trimmed and their vessel of oil? The wise put value into the oil that they had. It was needed, it was a must to have therefore they went prepared. The oil just as salvation can not be purchased, it's a gift and it must be given by only one person only. There will come a time when all preparation will come to an end but until then, get prepared.|

|Reaping When We Faint Not|
|2 Corinthians 4:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The devil wants us to stay busy with worldly things. If you have a job, you are away most of your time away from the most precious gifts that God has given. The news of today contains wars and battles against each other, mostly religious wars. Not only do we see the news, but also find ourselves fighting with ourselves, laziness. We were all promised victory through Jesus Christ. The devil will use all kinds of things to try to bring you down and get your mind off of God. The devil will use the smallest things like a cell phone to divert your path and thoughts. VBS is something that one can't go into without prayer. We can not be pushed down by the devil. Galatians 6:9 In 2012, 48% are protestants, 53% in 2007 and in 1970, 66%. The rest claimed no religious affiliation. In 2012 we had no christian presidential background and no supreme court judge. There will be a great falling away. So what are Christians to do? Are you going to just take getting beat up by the devil. Do you have friends that don't care about church or religion at all? How much is a soul worth? If you're saved, are you glad that someone told you about God? Knowledge is just facts, wisdom is taking the facts and using them. There should be a concern towards the lost and backslid. Don't let the ones that don't participate to hold you back in working for God. Jesus paved the path through His life on earth. Christ was tempted just as much if not more than we are. Jesus was mocked while He was on the cross but He was able to see past the cross to see the will of His father. There are multiple ways to reach the lost and backslid but there is ONLY one way to Christ. We are to live our testimony in front of others at all times. Protect it because it's very, very special. Are you a pessimist or an optimist? It's very easy for us a Christians to become a pessimist because of the ugliness that the devil will show you. Is your pew half empty or half full? Once you're saved you can't just sit down and rest. Back before Jesus the sacrifices of the animals only covered the sins. When Jesus gave His life, He washed the sins away.|

|What Has God Told You To Do?|
|James 1:21-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Luke 9:23 You must take up His cross and follow Him. Mat 19:20 God calls some to preach, some to administer, some to sing, some to testify and some to shout but, He tells all of His followers to pick up His cross and make others believe. We are not to just hear, but to do. If you have a job and work, you know what your purpose is there. Students, your job is the school work. The result of working at a job is paycheck. The result for doing your school work is higher learning. Have you forgotten what God has told you to do? What is the result of forgetting your job or school work? One thing is we must rush to do what we've forgotten which means something possibly gets pushed to the side. Just as your job and school has requirements, your spiritual life is just as important. Would you want to fail God? Not being feed the Word of God can cause you to not work for God. Just being feed and not working will cause you to be lazy on God. There is a urgency to doing Gods work. Our place of work has deadlines just as completing your homework. The spiritual side is that God will come back. If you knew the time that God was coming back would it cause you to work? Acts 8 You're a tool in someone's tool shed. You're either Gods tool or Satans. Take a good look at your own salvation. Don't cheat yourself out of blessings by just sitting and not doing.|
