|One Step Doesn't Make a Journey|
|Acts 2:41-42 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It takes one step to start the journey. There is not one person that knows for how long they are going to live. So how are you going to live those steps? What matters is the dash between your birth date and death date. We have no choice of when we are born and likewise our death. Have we not wasted years of our lives on junk. God will examine our journey and the junk will all be burnt. If you're waiting for the Spirit of God to show up before you began to worship, if you're saved then the Spirit lives inside you. We all have our own minds to make up whether we serve God or not. No one else can serve God for you. If you have children in your life then they are always watching you which means you are constantly teaching them. So what are you teaching those children about church, God? God knows why you come to church and it's just as bad to attend church unwilling and hindering His word than to simply lay out. If you've been saved then you've been purchased therefore you no longer own yourself, you live for Him now. Now your life matters when it comes to God. It's not about just getting into Heaven. Does Wednesday matter? What about Tuesday? When does it become okay to not live for God? Who's choice was it to join the church? What happened then when you made the choice to not follow Gods Word about not failing to assemble themselves together in the church service?
The Primitive Baptist association are made up of several churches and was established back in 1802. Associations of churches are not usual but ours has been going on for over 200 years. If some people do not take an interest into the association, it will dissolve. Now the association can NOT get one into Heaven but there are some things that are important. Most of the pastors of NPPBC were not from NPPBC, they were from other churches.

|How To Be Happy|
|Psalm 1:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What's going on in our world right now? Just a few years ago folks loved to worship God and couldn't wait to worship God and depending on God for everything. The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. For all of us there is two parts to us, a flesh and a spiritual. Blessed is the man that doesn't walk with the world. Satan doesn't want us to tell anyone about the goodness of God or invite folks or even yourself to church. So how can a man or woman be happy? There is only one thing that can make one happy. Which would you rather have, something that's temporary or something that's eternal?

|Getting Back To Basics|
|2 Timothy 3:10-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We've all been called into the ministry whether it be a preacher to a song leader to a praying individual. All scripture is given by the inspiration of God. The end of all arguments starts and ends with the Word of God. We hear a lot about doctrine right now. We label everything from churches to books and hymnals. The first label that should be applied is, Christian. If you say that the spirit witnessed with you, it doesn't matter what you say if it doesn't line up with the Word of God. Some will say that the bible is hard to read, understand. That statement is true but we do not read the Sunday paper, it's an instruction manual from God Himself. All scripture is of God, not just the pieces that we like and then dismiss the parts that we don't like. Some doctrines will tell you that as long as you believe and follow God then you'll be blessed with all these wonderful things. However, the bible clearly states in 2 Tim 3:12 that if you live for Christ you will go thru problems, persecution. We should study the Word daily, reading it, meditating on it and memorizing it. People are looking for answers all over the place, so we should have an answer for them from God to help them. Many folks that's been saved for many years are still babes, still on the milk when it comes to their spiritual growth. At times when we study and read the bible the things that we read might hurt us like getting a spanked. Those things do hurt and they are there for reproof and not to ignore. During readIng the bible it will bring us to correction at times. Once correction is made we should repent. Your Sunday school teacher is probably a hypocrite just like the rest of us but that doesn't make it right. We will all fail at some point and tell someone to live this way but we will live the opposite. The devil will come between Christians and try to cause conflict with anything and it seems that a lot of it currently is about doctrine. In the end, the doctrine is good but Jesus is more important. The focus should be about Jesus and Him crucified. We get caught up in the happiness of the world and fail to see the goodness of the end reward.|

|What Do You Do With Christ?|
|Matthew 11:20-24 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Are you affected by Christ, the Word of God? Do you actively ask folks if they've been saved? Our world that we live in today is just as sinful as it was in Sodom's time. Sin is sin no matter the type whether it be murder, homosexuality or a lie. Conflict is a problem that causes us to see for a remedy or a solution. Make sure you're living your serving God and doing His will. We don't have to be a rich person, works do not help and who you're related to in order to be saved. Never forget who saved you. Never forget where you were pulled from and saved from. We know that the world is quickly falling away from Christ but don't be discouraged. We also know that this has to happen prior to the second coming of Christ. It also means that we as Christians should not stop working for Christ. We should not look at others and feel as if they get away with everything. God will judge them just the same as you. If you think that you are only hurting yourself or its my life, you're wrong. Your body is a temple and God lives inside the temple therefore you're destroying God Himself. Jesus did die for everyone but not for all, only the ones that would accept Him as their personal savior. America today has so many idols that they quickly become bored. Children quickly become bored when they obviously have many, many things to do. Do you feel like you can't share your salvation? That lost person that you hate is so loved by Christ. The least you could do for that person is to share Jesus Christ with them. Jesus is a conflict and always has been.|

|Denying Ones Self|
|Matthew 16:24-26 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|You must give up yourself completely to God. A choice is made daily whether you will deny yourself and follow God. If you found yourself in the pits of hell you would give anything to not be there. The lost will have at least one opportunity to make a choice whether they will deny themselves and accept Jesus and His salvation. Those that are saved also have a choice whether they will deny themselves over Christ. If we want to be blessed of God then we MUST deny ourselves. The power of the church is leaving because we've let the flesh overtake us. It's a constant battle to overcome the flesh thru Christ. You money and other earthly possessions will ALL burn up in the end. The only thing that will stand is the work that has been done in His name. The flesh wants items in this world just because it's a lustful being. How often do you allow your tongue to ruin your witness or ruin denying yourself? It takes much discipline to walk in Christ's will. Do you find yourself wasting time for yourself during a free time?|
