Where Is Your Faith? (Luke 18:9-14)Jeff Patton, May 18, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
There are two types of people that come to the temple, the lost and the saved. We all have a part to do to within our lives that God has called us to do. Christ came for everyone not just a few. Those that humble themselves before God will be exalted. If it were not for God, we wouldn't have anything. We often think we have everything under control. Do you have your faith in your church? What about yourself? The bible teaches that we should help those and not judge them. How many times do you say "me" or "I" in your prayer? Your prayers come from the condition of your heart. Once you realize that you are truly a sinner and what God has done for you, that is when love comes in. We've all fallen short of Gods glory but He still loves us. Is your faith in the church roll?

9And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (KJV)
