All Things Work Together for Good
Romans 8:26-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
When He said all thing work together He really meant all things. When things come upon us some will weep, some laugh, some rejoice. The point of things, suffering. It’s hard to find the good in the midst of suffering. God is still working good in the child of God during suffering. There are things to grow from during suffering. Patience is just one of those things. Chastening is for your good. When one thinks of chastening it’s usually something that one doesn’t want. It was never a good thing but in the end it was to teach a lesson. Do what’s right and you will not be chastened. Blessings. When you’re good, there is a blessing. Blessings come when you obey Him. What you sow you will reap. Obedience is better than sacrifice. God is good. Every good gift comes from God. Patient and long suffering. We can blame and some do blame God for the bad stuff that happens. The truth is, most all of the time the blame should be us. We just didn’t do what we were supposed to do according to God.

Faint Not, Press Forward
2 Corinthians 4:1 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
There’s times when we don’t know what to do so we begin to fear and doubt. Each and every day we know that the flesh is getting older, dying. The one thing that a Christian has is a future. One could take everything in the world away from a Christian and yet, they will still have a bright future. A Christian shouldn’t dwell on things that they know that can’t control. Once one begins to dwell on those things then they will begin to doubt and start to fear. One step of a Christian is to stop living Sunday to Sunday on your prayer life. Once should be intimate with God within their prayer life. A lot of the times our pride take the prayer life away. We think we can handle it all. Take a spiritual inventory, on a scale from 1-10 how close are you to God? Don’t use your neighbor as a starting point. How many times does God start with you, not someone else? Some preach that if you’re having problems in life then you’re not saved or they’ve sinned. That’s a false doctrine. Bad stuff happens to everyone regardless of their salvation or how close they are to God. A persons afflictions is usually measured in the eyes of the flesh. The flesh will see what a downer it is but if they are seen by faith, they are just temporary. God will never fail His own and will always be there in the very time of need. What you go thru on this earth is nothing compared to the Glory we will have in Heaven. So what are you focusing on? Are you looking at the things that you can see? Stop looking at the temporal things. Those things we see with our earthly eyes are very short lived. You realize you have just as many good times as you do bad. God never said we would never be sad or always be happy. So we all have a ministry. We are to be the salt and the light of the world. Don’t loose heart or shrink away from your ministry. The devil will tell you that if you take the back seat then you won’t have to work. That’s a lie because you’ll be miserable. A lost person has a great downer when it comes to the scale of temporary and eternal. Their eternal life is worse than what they will ever experience here in this world. There is not a single persons that can promise good forever and that’s because it’s not true. Effect people for Jesus Christ. Don’t loose the heart of Christ. Don’t sit down because you will backslide. The hard stuff will come, but God will never leave. The best is yet to come for a Christian.

The Giver of Rights; the Saved
Colossians 1:10-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
It’s very difficult to describe the greatness of God. The human mind just can’t comprehend His love and greatness. It also great to note that He loves the lost just the same as the saved. It rains on the losts gardens just the same as the saved when He sends the rains. Do you ever wonder why God called your name? Jesus Christ loved us before we ever loved Him. God has the right to save a sinner. Now some will ask why He would save a person that is an evil doer in our eyes. It’s not about the goodness of the human flesh but of His grace. Some will say their genealogy is what will get them in, this is incorrect. Your linage has nothing to do with His salvation. He doesn’t love one over the other but all the same equally. Many people will and have turned a deaf ear to Gods word and His salvation. They march right into Hell because of their arrogance. God is sovereign and He doesn’t have to come to anyone seeking salvation. He owes nothing to anyone. Jesus Christ died once and for ALL. Those that die lost can not blame Christ for their eternity in Hell. It’s their choice where their eternal home will be once God calls their name. God has a right to save just because Jesus made a way through His sacrifice. Not only does God have a right to save but He also has a reason. The only way to receive Jesus Christ is to believe in Jesus Christ. Those that believe in Christ means that God has no choice than to have a reason. As a child of a King, being saved, comes with many perks. The king owns everything just because He created everything. One can walk into the throne room of God and commune with Him. Whenever one wants to, they can just walk right in and talk. Knowing that in the end of our lives death will not be felt and once our eyes are open we will be in Heaven. Heaven a place where there will be no sorrow, death, evil or pains. If you’re saved, fail not to use what God has given you. The privilege of holding His word. The honor of Him being our King, Father, the Love and the Hope. When standing before God at your death, you will say amen to your own condemnation if you’re lost. You will not blame anyone else other than your choice to not believe when you had the choice.

The Giver of Rights; the Lost
Genesis 2:7-9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
When we talk about the rights that we have, we must be careful that we recognized where they come from. In the United States we have certain rights but only because we are a citizen of the US. The men that stated our freedoms we see the terms life, liberty, and happiness and those are things that another person can’t give. Those things are given by God. Just as we have rights to be into citizenship of this country, we have rights from God. The rights we have in Christ are more important than those of this world. They are undeserving and the Christ should be praised for them, always. Since we are created, we have a creator. The creator gave the creation particular rights. In this particular form we will discuss to the lost, the unbelievers. Now, God is there whether you believe in Him or not. There are many things that you’ve never seen but you believe in them. Take a look at the church building we are in. One doesn’t have to be around when it was planned out but in your common knowledge we know there had to be a builder, designer, architect, a common creator. It wasn’t by sure accident that the building just formed all on it’s own. Just the same with the things around us, there had to be a creator. That creator being God. God being the creator of all things, He made humans different from the other creations. He gave humans the ability to make choices. No other creation has this choice, they simply live by the way that they were created. The clear choice is between good and evil. Just as there is a perfect being, there is a complete opposite being. In the beginning, Adam and Eve had a choice. They were told not to do something and yet they made a choice to do the wrong thing. We have no right to speak to God about our right they He has given us. We are His creation and He is our creator. We can not assert our rights over Gods rights. It simply doesn’t work that way no matter where or who one is. In Noah’s time we see that the world had become extremely evil. God being the creator looked across all humans and seen they had become evil. Since He is the creator He had every right to destroy the earth, His creation. There wasn’t a single person that had the power to stop Him because He is the creator. The question is, does God have the right to do whatever He wants to? Yes, because He is the creator. Now God only knows what is right, perfect. We may not understand what He has done, but in the end it will always be perfect. Noah was the only follower of God at that time. The first point, did God have a right to destroy, yes. He is the creator of the creation, it’s His. Second point, did He have a reason, yes. Every person but Noah was purely evil. Then we see in the scripture the BUT point. But Noah found favor with God and God saved His family and only his family. God waited because He is gracious. He waited for one single person. God looked down on the hate of the world and found but only one man and came to him and told him to build an ark. He wanted Noah’s obedience to save some fo the animals and Noah’s family. For 120 years God showed His mercy. God then shut the door, locked it and saved Noah’s family because He loved Noah. As an unbeliever there is one that you are accountable to whether you believe in Him or not. You will give an account to Him at the time of your death. Based upon your family and whether you believed on His son, Jesus Christ determines where your eternal home will be, Heaven or Hell. The most heinous sin is to deny His son, Jesus Christ for the greatest sacrifice ever made. So, if you go to Hell it’s because you rejected Jesus Christ. God has every right and He has every reason to cast you into Hell, but thru His love, mercy, and grace He loves you and offers a way of escape. You on your own will never be good enough. Daniel 4 Seven years a king lived as an animal because He was warned of His unbelief. Finally the king came to his senses and acknowledged there is God. If God can bring a world king to his knees, He can bring you there as well and will.

There is no Confidence of the Flesh
Philippians 3:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
How many things hinder us in rejoicing in the Lord? One can’t measure another’s worship. Whatever it takes to worship God, do it. Don’t let anything hinder you in worshiping God. There should be one thing that trouble us and that’s those that change the word of God. There are people in this world that tell false truths that add or take away from Gods word. One can’t change Gods word and it still be the gospel. There are still some that like to state what they think and not what God has said. They tell that the clothing, a particular way to dress is the way God favors one. Beware of those that tell you, you must do something in order to be favored. You’re flesh/righteousness is filthy and sinful and nothing you can do is of bringing favor from God unto salvation. Circumcision was and is an outward, fleshly showing that is simply a work. It doesn’t say you are one way or another. Beware of those that deceive and change the word of God. Sign this card and you can go to Heaven. Repeat this prayer and you can go to Heaven. Phil 3:5-7 All of those thing that there was once confidence are all at great loss. Being circumcised is fleshly example and means nothing. Upbringing and who you know or come from, means nothing. Obeying the law and never breaking it, means nothing. Doing what you think is right, means nothing. Christ is simple. There is but only one way to Heaven. Nothing needs to be added or taken away. Christ tells us that in order to live we must die. To get more, give more. These sayings are contrary to the flesh and what it wants. The world wants you to have confidence in self.
Preached by Tommy Boring on July 19, 2020 (Sunday Evening).
With Certainty
1 Timothy 6:7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
In this time our flesh lives in uncertain times, however God is not surprise and He knows with certainty what is going on. There is one thing that we can be certain of down here and that is death. If you allow Jesus to live thru you then you’ve allowed the Holy Spirit to come in and dwell. He dwell in a sinful area, so keep yourself clean. Let Christ guide your life. Death is certain no matter your social standing or your monetary worth. The only thing that matters is that you know Jesus Christ and have accepted Him as your personal savior. If you accept Him you don’t have to change because Christ will change you to a different being. If you’ve never had a change in your life, then your lost. Church role, attendance, giving, works, repeated prayers will not change your soul. It’s not about your lifestyle or you, it’s about His finished work. Pray to God and ask Him to fulfill the desires of your heart. The truth is not what YOU desire but what God’s desires are. Your desire might be to fancy car but God’s desires are to save the lost. Make sure you heart is right with God. When you lay down tonight and never wake again in this natural body, where will you be? Do you know for certain where you will be after your death?
Preached by Danny Gregory on July 19, 2020 (Sunday Morning).
Starving To Death
Matthew 5:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Each time that Jesus spoke, it was true lay important. Truth is, most didn’t hear Him and still don’t. When you think of being blessed are you stating those things that are carnal? A lost person or person that hates God still eats and lives their life with earthly goods. Being blessed should be about what God can only do and give, the spiritual things. The definition of blessed, when one is completely satisfied and then joy comes. When Jesus says blessed He is saying something more than just what you have. A joy that comes from within even when one is poor and has nothing worth anything. Matthew 5:6 If one is saved then they have the righteousness that God gave them. Righteousness excludes mankind. The only one that is righteous is God Himself. People don’t like to attend church because they are uncomfortable. God pricks the heart and points out their sins to which they do not like. They don’t hunger for God enough to take care of those sins and repent of them. Hungering after God should be just the same as hungering for food and water. It refresh, fulfill, and satisfy. The problem with staying refresh and fulfilled is the sins of the world. The sins of the world are just junk food to the flesh. One can’t love this world and love God too. You will love one and hate the other. How many have quit something because you got hungry? Whatever it was that you were in the middle of, you stopped because your stomach growled. Your soul also hungers but how many times have you stopped something in order to feed it?

Falling Away
2 Peter 3:17-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
4 points to know you’ve fallen away You fall out of love with God. You stop attending church. You won’t read your bible. You don’t pray.
Preached by Harrison Hill on July 12, 2020 (Sunday Evening).
The Great High Priest
Hebrews 4:14-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
The Christian must hold fast to the profession of faith. No more wavering. No more going back and forth. A lot of people just go around complaining about this and that and seemingly act like they are never happy. If you’ve been born again then you’ve got Jesus. This doesn’t mean that you’ll always be happy but one has Jesus to help you thru. You do realize that each and every person is completely different than the other. Not a single person has the same DNA as the next. This means we are all unique and won’t always see eye to eye. You’re not always right and neither is the next person. The only perfect person is Jesus. In order to get the first one has to get number two. When Jesus called your name and you accepted Him as your personal savior, He wrote your name down and you have your very own seat at His table. No one else is allowed to sit in your seat and you can’t sit in another’s seat. You can keep your faith If you come boldly to His throne. So what does it take to come boldly to His thrown? Mercy. We are a sinner and need the mercy. Grace to help. The unmerited favor of God. Meet. We must meet Him.
Preached by Tommy Boring on July 12, 2020 (Sunday Morning).
The Importance of Prayer
James 5:14-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
There are those out there that when they speak we are just amazed on their ability. There is something different when it comes to the word of God. The last message we heard was over the Christians responsibilities. Does anyone really know how to communicate with God? We can try our very best to do so but we fail time and time again. In our time of today we see that the world is quickly falling apart. All one has to do is look back in history to see that when the world gets bad, God steps in and does something great. If we think about what we know about genealogy we can figure out about how old the earth is. The earth is only about 6000 years old. 4000 years prior to Christ and after Christ only about 2000. Stop and think about Noah and his life of prayer. He was one man that only saved 8 people in the ark. Those 8 people replenished they earth. Abraham was also another that was a praying man. Thru Christ he saved many of people. If we get serious about prayer then he will work. He doesn’t have to hear from hundreds of people, He only requires of one. An effectual and fervent prayer of one person. Most of us doubt that our prayers are even going thru or they won’t mean much. What do you think would happen if we as a group of believers got together and prayed? The problem is that our priorities are all out of order. We spend more time watching TV, working, or even eating. Over and over in the Bible we read of where God heard just ONE person and acted on it. Luke 11:1-10 The importance of prayer is persistence. In this scripture we see how to pray but Jesus followed it up with a story. A story of a man that went to his friend late at night asking for some bread. This man didn’t give up knocking until he received the bread. The point of the prayer is, don’t stop until you get thru and your prayer is answered. A lot of times we want to pray for something so we get down and pray and quit. We expect God to do something just because we asked for it. When it doesn’t happen we get discouraged, angry, or just give up. Jesus Himself told us to pray without stopping until we get the answer to that prayer. If God answered our prayers on the first time each and every time then He would just be our genie in a bottle. We should see Him as a GOD, all powerful, all mighty, all knowing. We should petition Him and be asking Him because we love Him and are humbled before Him. We can’t just snap our fingers and expect God to jump. 1 John 3:22 One has to live right in order for God to hear them. God will NOT be manipulated into doing something from you.

Christian Responsibilities
Hebrews 10:19-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
What is our responsibility in a powerful world? What is God going to measure us to? Each person will be judged on their own doings. Hold fast to your faith, be faithful. Be faithful in whatever to God all the time. Let your life be an example of God. How you deal with other, in your service to God. Consider one another. Be considerate of another. Recognize the ones around you and their needs. Many want to lay down and give up. Be careful of the souls that surround you. Speak life, not death to others. Everyone needs encouragement. Provoke one another to love and good works. Don’t fail to assemble yourselves together. One thing that is true is that the enemy has broken the assembly during this pandemic. There are still churches that are not meeting. The pastor is not the only one but the people, the fellowship of the believers. You’ll often miss Gods word if you begin to miss the gather of Gods people. He didn’t set up the church as an individual fellowship but a group setting.
Preached by Tommy Boring on July 5, 2020 (Sunday Evening).
Not In This Alone
1 Peter 5:6-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
A lot will want verse 7 but they forget verse 6. How many of you will humble yourself before God prior to throwing your cares upon Him. Now we can try to tell in words how great God is, it’s just a sliver of what He really is. We read about a God that can do anything, any time, at any way possible. In biblical times we know that the leaders would torture people just because the masses enjoyed as entertainment. They would place children and babies in arenas and turn lions loose to entertain those watching. Yet we think that we currently have a horrible life. God has all power yet we must be able to fully grasp Him. We live in a time where people are scared to death of the things that are currently taking place. The truth is that it will get worse before it will get better. If it’s not Covid then it will be something else. People have died way before Covid was around. We should not be concerned about dying but about the after death life. Thru all of our struggles, God can do anything, everything! The problem is due to pride. When you get down in your sorrow and worry, look up to God. If you hold on to the worry and doubt then your pride is telling you that you can fix it or control it. This is a lie. One will never say they are sorry until they are humbled. Now if God wants one humbled then He can do it. But God says that we should humble ourselves, not Him to humble us. Go often to Calvary. The suffering that Jesus Christ went thru for us is beyond anything anyone has ever gone thru. When you are able to see Christ then you will be throwing you worries to Him. We won’t give up until all of our cares are upon Him.
Preached by Tommy Boring on July 5, 2020 (Sunday Morning).
Who Are You Following?
Joshua 3:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Many of movies have been made about the ark of the covenant, searching for it. We don’t know if the ark is still in existence or not. The ark is a representation of something to come later in time. The ark was covered in pure gold including the poles in which they used to carry it. On top of it was two cherubs also made of solid gold. Also on the top was a mercy seat where the priest would offer the blood of the animals to God. The ark also contained some things. It had the Ten Commandments, the law. We have the fulfillment of the law, they just had the law and the law only. There was also manna in the ark, the very substance that kept the Israelites alive. We have the living provision not just for the flesh but for the soul. Lastly they staff of Aaron which bloomed. They had an image of something but we have the real. Now just for them when they had the ark, it would become the most important thing in their life. For us, it’s Christ and without Him we are nothing. Joshua 3:3 This is the direction to follow. Christ also stated to us to follow Him. We can’t get ahead of Him without following and let Him lead. Joshua 3:4 It was instructed that they must stay a certain distance back from the ark. This was so that all eyes could see it and know where to go. One can’t follow something that can’t be seen. How many of you know the directions to Heaven? We don’t know our journey but, Christ does. Keep Him in front of you. Joshua 3:5 They were instructed to clean themselves. They had to be prepared and just as they were instructed we are also instructed to stay prepared. We should always stay prepared for Gods wonders. All one has to do to see Gods wonders is to keep ourselves clean, prepared. Joshua 3:11 In this time just as today, there are many gods. People worship all kinds of things and those things have no power. There is only one God and He is the god of everything. Joshua 3:15-17 Remember the ark is Christ and the Jordan is something they can’t cross alone, death. They were instructed to simply go to the edge of Jordan and simply put the tip of their toe in it. Once that took place, then the Jordan dried up in that one spot. They then took the ark to the middle of the dried of Jordan and stopped and allowed everyone to pass thru Jordan as it was dry. It’s stated they walked thru dry ground, not muddy. We will all experience death. All one has to do is just touch it and Christ takes it from there. Christ takes over because He’s already crossed over and knows the way.

Almost Saved is Altogether Lost
Acts 26:24-29 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Seems the culture that we live in is going backwards. It’s the belief that if one is good-enough then one will go to Heaven. You’ll never find in the Bible that that belief is right. If one asks someone if they are going to Heaven they will usually say yes. But, if you press them on why then they will struggle with a truthful answer. Everyone will die, after death a eternal home. Where will your home be? Heaven or Hell. It’s a Christians duty to share the truth of salvation to the lost. Any church one goes to you will always sit among those that are “almost” Christians. Justification is not a process, it’s an event. It happens immediately once your born again. One can’t work for it, it’s given by Christ Himself. Being a Christian requires a conversion. Some will says they once they stop sinning then they will turn to God. That day will never take place because a person is always sinning. The religious lost. A bunch of folks just go to church. This does not mean that you shouldn’t attend church. Attending a church does not make one a Christian. Some folks make a big deal out of dressing up. If you think that your attire will make you a Christian, you’ve been mistaken and taught incorrectly. The religious lost go to church to do the “church” things. They attend during Christmas and Easter. As much as your church family loves you. As much as God loves you. You still must be saved in order to go to Heaven. The emotional lost. Some people work off of an emotion. They see or feel something and think that is what makes them saved. Those that feed off of those emotions in order to bring salvation are misleading the lost. The only way one knows if they’ve been born again is if the Spirit bares witness. A lost person doesn’t know where home is because they’ve never been home. One should never tell another person that they’ve been saved. This is because you truly don’t know. Our church membership is based on YOUR testimony of salvation. Many people live in sin because they’ve never been saved. Have you received the spirit of Christ?
Preached by Tommy Boring on June 21, 2020 (Sunday Morning).
Ignorance to Righteousness
Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Anyone should recognize that in this day and time that we live that people have turned away from God. Not just in the cities and the turmoil that is happening but in our own church. God could call this thing to an end and He would be 100% right in doing so. There is nothing that needs to take place before He comes because it’s all been fulfilled. The number one problem is that there are still people that are lost. This world is filled with places like ours, called a church where people meet and assemble. Within these buildings there are many that sit and claim a salvation but it’s not of Gods that they are saved by but their own. People no longer fear God. In biblical times we know the story surrounding Moses and the people went around and followed his laws. They had a zeal of God but they didn’t truly know Him. They just went thru the actions. Every Sunday they sit and stare with blank eyes. There is no amount of actions that can take place to make them to move because it’ll have to be them realizing they’ve been fooled. There are many that have heard the gospel so much that they have grown hard to it. You will NOT go to Heaven if you’ve not been saved. One MUST be born again to go to Heaven. It’s a simple gospel. There is not a single person that can look at another and know that they’ve been saved or not. Many walk around and have a form of godliness. Many are those claim to be great theologians and yet they spread false religions. We have a responsibility to warn those of the truth. One can’t beat it into their heart in fact one can cause more harm than good doing so. With love is the only way to warn others. If you can’t warn without love then you should keep your mouth shut. From the day you were conceived you took on the sin of the human. If you started today and began to live a completely sin free life, you would still not get into Heaven. You can’t do anything about your past that was full of sin. There will be absolutely no sin in Heaven. You can ask anyone if they are a sinner and they will begin to struggle with the answer. They begin to compare themselves to someone that is worse at sinning then they are. People can’t submit to God because they don’t understand, they are ignorant to the righteousness of God. They’ve been deceived by the religious talks of false doctrines. Flesh is not perfect and never will be. That means the flesh can’t enter into Heaven. The soul, a spiritual part of the human body is the only part that can go into Heaven, but, only if it has been saved by Christ.

Be the Light
Ephesians 5:1-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
It will get worse before it will get better. God gave us instruction thru Paul on how to walk thru this world in the darkness. We as Christians should walk carefully thru this world. We should not walk away or hide in a cave. We are called to walk and live amongst the lost, not to partake of what the world is doing. We should be showing the lost the good news of Christ. If a Christian is caught up with the world then they ruin their testimony and have nothing to offer. God has yet to return or call us home because He is not yet done. Eph 5:17, ask a new Christian what the will of God is and you’ll blow their mind. The will of God is to see the lost saved. The lost need to see God’s light being shown. Who’s job is it to spread His word? It’s every born again Christian. It’s not just the pastors, preachers, deacons, etc. It’s every Christians duty to seek the lost and share the gospel with them. Do you know what the world needs and is looking for? The world is looking for love and they are looking for it in all the wrong places. It’s the Christians job to show them the love of Christ and that they have hope in Christ. A Christian can’t be about the will of God while they have dirty hands. A Christian should be living their life as a living example of Christ. If God asked you to share your testimony with someone, could you do it? God can’t use a dirty vessel, are you clean?

Share the Good News
Mark 16:1-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Most are very well aware of what is going on in the world today. Lately when one sees the news we only see the bad news. Bad news is what sells, thus the reason of seeing it all the time. Now many times many want to rise up and take a stand in what we think, taking sides. Now we as Christians should know that the good news is that all can be saved. Everything in the Bible is pointing to the coming of Christ. Every single one of us is responsible in sharing the good news of Gods saving grace. In this world, the lost, it’s up to the Christian to give them the good news. Reason being is that the world is selling bad news. In the church house it should be about one thing and one thing only. It shouldn’t matter about the color of our skins, what we drive, or who we voted for. It should be about one thing only and that’s God and His saving grace. In this day and time the devil has many distracted upon other things. The world needs God in their lives because we are lacking the love of God. 1 Cor 15:1-4 Isa 53:4-6; 10-11 We should love our enemies, have compassion towards those that hurt us or offend us. Stop focusing on the wrongs of those and pray and love those that do the wrongs of the world. There is good news for those that are lost, Job 14:14. Sin is sin and it’s been like what we are dealing with in the world today, forever. God loved you enough, even though you felt like you were nothing, and sent His ONLY son to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. His son was sinless and took a beating that no one ever deserved especially Him. He took the lashings and crucifixion without saying anything. He died and rose on the day He said He would. He did all of this because He loved YOU.

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.

Where the Law Meets Love
Romans 8:1-4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
There are some that you’ve tasted that God is good but maybe you’ve turned your back on Him. The love of God is above ALL. The greatest all of these is Love. Psalm 139:7-13, you can’t run any more. There is no condemnation in those that love God. John 3:16-17, you might be running but there is good news, God still loves you! There was once a woman that according to the law she was supposed to be put to death due to her sins that she was guilty of. But when those that accused her brought her before Jesus, Jesus flipped the table on them. Jesus pointed out to them that they all had sinned. Another story we see Jesus was within a large crowd and He was confronted by the Pharisees. They brought up that Jesus was mixing with those that He shouldn’t had been. Now in this crowd was a mix of sinners and followers alike. Jesus began to tell them a story about a son that had ran off and then realized that he shouldn’t had and came back home. In this story the son wanted what was belonging of him. He took those things and ran off to live the way he thought he should’ve been. He spent everything, wasted it away into nothing. Now this son then was connected with a man as to where he was cleaning up after, in that time was an unclean animal, pigs. This son then came to his senses while in that pig pen and he knew he needed to go back home. The law doesn’t condemn you. Conviction is what makes you feel bad. Conviction came upon this son while in the pig pen. When he started his journey back home he finally arrived and his father seen him from afar. Now there was a law in that day that if one had a son and they wouldn’t listen, they could be taken to the gate and turned over to the elders. Now this father ran out to his son and fell on his neck and loved him. Now the son had violated the law but the father still loved him. On the day of Calvary we know that the law was that blood would have to be shed for sins. This law was established with Adam and Eve. When they sinned in the garden they tried to hide their sins with fig leaves. When those leaves are plucked, they begin to die and become crumbly. There is nothing that can hide your sins from God. The law tells one where they stand. But it’s the love of God that falls on your neck and keeps you. Are you tired of running. Are you tired of hiding. There is a cure for conviction. It’s found in an old fashioned altar. An altar could be beside the bed, off in the woods, in the church house or even in your living room. The prodigal son was given a robe, shoes on his feet and a ring on his finger. This ring was proof that his father loved him and showed others that he was
