|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|There is Despair When There is No Success|
|1 Kings 19:1-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Elijah prayed for rain and within hours it was raining but shortly after during his miracle the enemy came to him. The goal was not about rain, it was about men changing their hearts towards God. When the enemy came to Elijah he ran off away from the enemy. If a man like Elijah could be caught in a snare all the while in Gods miracles, how could we do it? Have you ever been there in great despair? Have you ever prayed, studied, worked and fasted but nothing happened? We can't make someone get saved, change them or make certain things happen by our doings. During Elijah's despair there was no body around to help him in his time of need. No one was their to help him see that God was still there when the enemy was punching him in the gut. In your work place, if you don't perform your job then there is no paycheck. But in God work, He already knows your work and your payout isn't truly based on your work. Think about when the preachers preach and the response is great from the congregation. But thinking about the same thing and on Sunday nights folks nap during the service. Have you as a church member ever thought about cancelling a church service because no one is there in attendance? Nothing gets done when we wallow in our disappointments. Have you ever known God not to be with you? Gods people will end up in despair at some point in their Christian walk but they always end up at Gods feet. God will pick them up and put them back on their journey each and every time. So when you get disappointed, you'll sit down, backslide.|

|Ruth 1:1-7 (Part of the Ruth 1 series).|
|Some think they can figure it out on their own without the help of God. But, what you sow you shall reap. Some will turn their back on the church for the smallest thing thinking they've made a good decision but, when they turn their back on the church they e turn towards the enemy. If one stays out in sin, there is a price to pay. If one has made a decision to turn their back on God, they've made a choice to take the consequences for their actions. One may think they'll just lay out of church this one time or do this one thing just once but it slowly turns into a long time, a more than once occasion. If a parent raises a child with the sins of the world, you'll raise a child thinking it all right to compromise God's Word. The devil will take everything you've got if you give him a little. Have you ever heard anyone say it was a good idea to turn from God?|

|Is the Proof in the Pudding?|
|Acts 26:1-30 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|How many times has God brought you to a place where you could share your testimony? A little salt brings out the flavor in food. If you've been saved then you have a personal experience, a testimony. There is power in your testimony but if you let the devil to come in to tear it down, it'll have no power. If you live your life like you're not saved and then decide to share your testimony, the lost will not hear it. Do you live your life if you've got a testimony? Is there action behind your testimony? Do you ever feel like you can't share your testimony? So has your salt lost its savor? Our testimony with God is the most important thing in our lives but we usually don't protect it like it is. If you've damaged your testimony it can be repaired.|

|Are You Spiritually Impaired? (Part 4)|
|2 Peter 1:9-11 (Part of the 2 Peter 1 series).|
|If you want to know what God's will is for you, you just read it. We should let our light shine. If you're lost, you can let God's light shine thru you. The world is blind to to the will of God. There are Christians that feed upon the world but they will become blind to the spirit. The more you apply the Christian graces the more able you'll be able to see the will of God. When you're close to God you'll be shown what the enemy has in store because God knows what's it's up to. Most backslid Christian can't see that they have been forgiven of their past sins. Once you forget what God has done for you you'll begin to backslide and fall away from God. If you can't see Spiritually and you can't remember the day that you were saved, you need to study if you've ever been saved. Some work so hard at doing things trying to get into heaven by their works but their works will never get them in to heaven. They are basically working their way to hell. If you're salvation is based upon somebody telling you that you've been saved, you need to question your salvation. No one but you and God knows if you've been born again. If you're in a race, you're in it to try to win it. You don't have to be born again to help the homeless, feed the hungry, adopt the orphans, but you must be born again to have the graves of God. 1 Cor 3:15 He was able to get to heaven but he suffered the entire way. 1 Cor 3:14 If you live in the graces you will walk into heaven through a great entrance or welcoming.|
