|Work It Out!|
|Philippians 2:8-13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Christ is the boss in a Christians life. At the name of Jesus Christ everything will bow and confess that HE IS LORD. Until one understands first that Christ is lord over all you'll never understand the next part. One must work out their own salvation with fear and trembling. No other thing will one answer to but Christ Himself. One can not work to their salvation. Too many people once they hit a road block they just lay it to the side and stop. One can't work out someone else's but only their own. If God has given you 5 things to do, He expects you to work on those 5 things and nothing less and nothing more. If you've been born again then you have at least one talent that should be worked.|

|Pruned To Perfection|
|John 15:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When you prune things you cut them back. You have to prune things back in order to make it flourish. Not anyone can simply begin pruning, one must learn how to prune in order for the plant to flourish. All of us could confess that things pop up in our lives that take our focus off the main thing. Gal 5:22-23 are all fruits of the Spirit. We should look into the areas where the opposite of the fruits are growing. From a business aspect, they are always looking for ways of making more money, cutting out those things that waste money. Mat 5:16, Gods aim in your life is to make you more fruitful. Just as the fruit gardener is, God is patient. If you're grafted into the true vine then God will prune away all of the things that are unproductive. The fruit we bare is not to give glory to the branch. How fruitful are you? If you're truly attached to the vine then the vine cares about what type of fruit your growing and sharing.|

|Pray For One Another|
|1 Thessalonians 5:15-28 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We should be constantly growing in grace as we go along. Not only are we moving closer to God as we age but we should also grow as a Christian as we get closer to Him. We should be praying for each other and in order to do that we must be completely engaged. Have you ever woke up with someone on your mind? It's a wonderful thing to know that someone is praying for you.
Do you think that it doesn't make a difference to pray? It all revolves around whom you're praying to. How big is your god?
Gal 6:2, we should bare each other's burdens, pray for each other.
Don't excuse yourself without a permission slip. If you think that you're not a prayer warrior then you're limiting the god that you're serving. The God that called you is the one that keeps you therefore you should have great confidence. We should be praying for each other. Praying means it will cost you. It requires your time and might be hard to bare someone's burden.
We should greet each other with love and respect. Some cultures still greet with a kiss, we are not one of them but we do have handshakes, hugs and even eye contact.

|We Don't Need A New Cart|
|2 Samuel 6:1-3 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
We live in a time where people don't want to hear the name of the Lord. They want a feel good religion. According to the Word of God, the Word when it's presented it should cut away at the sin which is a painful action. If you can sit in the church house and the Word is presented and you feel alright, then there's something wrong. People don't want to bare up with the weight of God. They don't want to do the work that God has given them to do. People don't reverence God like they used to. The respect of God is lost in the newer generations.
Heb 4:12 the Word of God is needed as a discerner. We need more pulpits and less stages. We don't need to hear lies about how good we are, we need to hear of how we are but a sinner. You can pick up a bible at just about any place but folks don't want to read them. The attendance number doesn't make it a church.
2 Chron 7:14-15 worship can be done in silence. Praising is done with movement. We need a Word from God. If you get close to God it'll get to the point that you won't care what others think about you. Be careful of the services that you sit thru. If it takes material objects to make you move and the Word of God makes you simply sit, you've got it all wrong. The world is invading our churches all over.
Jer 6:16 we need to get it right. A pulpit, a man that's not afraid to preach it and call sin-sin, a congregation that won't compromise and call sin -sin. Seek out the old paths. We need to get to the root of the problem and get rid of it.

|Support, Patient, Vengeance & Follow Good|
|1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We as Christians have no excuse to live right. Our flesh is weak, the lust of it and the pride of the eye causes a hindrance to all.
Support: In order to support the weak then that means you'll have to be stronger than them. If the blind leads the blind then they will surely end up in the ditch. Christians should give unto those that are lesser. For a lot of people, they would rather be served than to serve others.
Patient: If you do anything for anyone then you'll need patience. Eph 4 Usually or enemy is one in whom we have a complete lack of patience. How often do we give up simply because something didn't turn out the way we thought it should have.
Vengeance: Take no vengeance to yourself. If someone hits you in the face then you should offer the other cheek. Our flesh will tell one to retaliate against others that do us wrong. Jesus himself had every right to "get even" to those that tortured Him, but He didn't! We all deserved and still deserve death for the treatment of Christ still to this day.
Follow Good: We should always follow what is good. The flesh struggles with this daily. When one respond with mercy, compassion and forgiveness to others, this is different than the norm. Monday shouldn't be any different than Sunday. So what is good? A worship service that's spirit filled. The word of God, loving others and praying for others. All of these things are good things.
