Prepare Our Hearts For The Ditch
Luke 10:25-37 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Lack of compassion, mercy and love. It must be things that are done but not said. A lot of us are talkers but not doers. Anyone can love someone that loves them back but on the flip side it's loving those that don't love back. If we loved as God loves it wouldn't matter about race, money or class. Luke 6:27-36 how many of those can you say you've gotten right and done them according to His word? It's not in a humans mind to be kind to those that hurt us. An excerpt from "Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" -Jim Cymbala "Dear God, I know that You died for everyone in my community. I know You suffered, bled and died for every human being walking outside my church. So Lord, tomorrow I pray in the Name of Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit, call them in; any color, homeless, poor. Bring them in. We'll love them. We'll be Your hand extended to them. We will nurse them. We will bless them. We will weep over them. Send them in, O God, in Jesus' Name." Are you willing to say that prayer? No one was worthy of his love and we were all in the lowest of lowest. When the sinner does come in they all come in, in all forms. We often have stereotyped the unclean and the visual appearance of those that we feel are unworthy of a Gods and our love. Sin comes in a suit and tie or in nothing at all, tattoos from head to toe or not a tattoo at all, from the cleanest to the dirtiest, from no hair to the longest hair. This world is nasty, dirty and stinks but God called us to love the sinners just as He loves them. The problem is that there are no workers, no one to love them that are in the nastiest of ditches. We try to say that we don't have a neighbor but what God says that your neighbor is ANYONE that you pass or meet. Don't we like to make excuses to why we can't help because we've got something to do, we are too busy? We should go out to the hedges, where people hang out and do things in secret and try to bring them to Christ. An excerpt from "Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" -Jim Cymbala I've been rebuked by the Lord many times because what I am preaching to you, I've had to learn. I will tell you the story of how God corrected me one day. On Easter Sunday some years ago, we had an outreach in the last service, and a girl in the choir which Carol, my wife, conducts gave her testimony in between some of the songs. She had been saved out of deep sin. Then I preached the Gospel. People came forward. At that time we were having three services a day, each two hours long. That Easter Sunday I was so tired at the end of the day that I just went to the edge of the platform, pulled down my tie and sat down and draped my feet over the edge. The prayer workers were praying for people I had invited to receive Christ. I was sitting there bone tired. There had been lines outside. We had turned hundreds of people away for lack of space. As I was sitting there I looked up the middle aisle, and there in about the third row was a man who looked about fifty, disheveled, filthy. He looked up at me rather sheepishly, as if saying, "Could I talk to you?" We have homeless people coming in all the time, asking for money or whatever. So as I sat there, I said to myself, though I am ashamed of it, "What a way to end a Sunday. I've had such a good time, preaching and ministering, and here's a fellow probably wanting some money for more wine." He walked up. When he got within about five feet of me, I smelled a horrible smell like I'd never smelled in my life. It was so awful that when he got close, I would inhale by looking away, and then I'd talk to him, and then look away to inhale, because I couldn't inhale facing him. I asked him, "What's your name?" "David." "How long have you been on the street?" "Six years." "How old are you?" "Thirty-two." He looked fifty; hair matted; front teeth missing; wino; eyes slightly glazed. "Where did you sleep last night, David?" "Abandoned truck." I keep in my back pocket a money clip that also holds some credit cards. I fumbled to pick one out thinking, I'll give him some money. I won't even get a worker. They are all busy praying with others. Usually we don't give money to people. We take them to get something to eat. I took the money out. David pushed his finger in front of me. He said, "I don't want your money. I want this Jesus this girl was talking about, the One you were talking about, because I'm not going to make it. I'm going to die on the street." I completely forgot about David, and I started to weep for myself. I was going to give a couple dollars to someone God had sent to me. See how easy it is? I could make the excuse I was tired. There is no excuse. I was not filled with the Spirit. I was not seeing him the way God sees him. I was not feeling what God feels. But oh, did that change! David just stood there. He didn't know what was happening. I pleaded with God, "God, forgive me! Forgive me! Please forgive me. I am so sorry to represent You this way. I'm so sorry. Here I am with my message and my points, and You send somebody and I am not ready for it. Oh, God!" And God baptized me afresh with love. Something came over me. Suddenly I started to weep deeper, and David began to weep because he could feel what was happening in me. He fell against my chest as I was sitting there. He fell against my white shirt and tie, and I put my arms around him, and there we wept on each other. The smell of His person became a beautiful aroma. Here is what I thought the Lord made real to me: if you and Carol don't love this smell, I can't use you, because this is why I called you where you are. This is what you are about. You are about this smell. It's beautiful. Christ changed David's life. He started memorizing portions of Scripture that were incredible. We got him a place to live. We hired him in the church to do maintenance, and we got his teeth fixed. He was a handsome man when he came out of the hospital. They detoxed him in about six days. He spent that Thanksgiving at my house. He also spent Christmas at my house. When we were exchanging presents, he pulled out a little thing and he said, "This is for you." It was a little white hanky. It was the only thing he could afford. A year later I had him give his testimony. The minute he took the mic and began to speak, I said, "The man is a preacher." This past Easter I helped ordain David. He's an associate pastor of a church in New Jersey. And I was so close to saying, "Here, take this; I'm a busy preacher." We can get so full of ourselves.

Why Don't You Want To Love?
Isaiah 58:1-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Do you attend a church because you've always gone to church? Has it become a tradition? God wants people to have a desire from you to love Him. Serving God is not just something that you do in a church. Do you feel or think that God should be pleased with your worship? We should show compassion to others through love. If you claim to worship inside a church but do not show that outside the church, what are you telling others? We should give up ourselves to others. If you see someone in need, would you help them? We all have the ability to care more than what we do. God did not call you to simply worship Him, He called you to love Him but to help others. Have you ever wondered why God doesn't bless you like you think He should? Stop and consider what you have done for Him. Have you done and given your all and best?

Class is in Session
2 Peter 3:5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We should be students of the Word. One of the things we excuse ourselves from is class. Some people do not like learning, but learning is the essence of growing. In order one to have an understanding, they must be taught. Nature is a teacher, 1 Corinthians 11:14. We are teachers to one another, Colossians 3:13. The Bible teaches us, Galatians 3:24, Romans 15:4. Do you think that Google is the answer? The Holy Spirit is a teacher, John 14:26. The Grace of God is a teacher, Titus 2:11-12. God is a teacher, Psalm 119:33-34.

Don't You Talk About My Momma!
Exodus 20:7 (Part of the Revival 2013 series).
We love you only because Christ loved us first.  The Lord wants to heal your heart. Our father knows what we have need of before you ask. It's important we don't use his name in vain. He must increase and I must decrease. Do not be as the hypocrites are and have vain repetitions. Instead of asking for something, repent! We can accomplish something if we don't pray in vain. You can't praise him with sin in your heart. The name of Jesus should be honored and lifted up. Do you worship in vain?  Too many people want to speak but you should be slow to speak and quick to listen.  No more is it a chore to come to Gods house. Sometimes your lost buddies or your lost families are expecting something from you. But, your heart must be near to him. They believed because they were preaching in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost. The results are immediate. If you love him you will keep his commandments. Quite making a mess out of his name. God gives the increase. The men who were led by the Holy Ghost made progress. Cry out to Jesus! We are too relaxed. There's only one great one! The only sustainability is the blood of Jesus Christ. You can't take a break from god and expect to just pick up where you left off. People fight over money or power but without Jesus it's all in vain. If your program is not seasoned with the Holy Ghost it isn't profitable. You can't put anybody's name with Jesus to break free of sin. There's something wrong if the name of Jesus doesn't cause you to recognize what he did for you. Many called but few are chosen. Everything you say or do should speak Jesus. Before revival you have to comprehend the name of Jesus. We are proud of ourselves. Anything you do is in vain if you aren't right with god. Call upon the name of The Lord while he may be found. We are required to live right. We have in our man made products but lacking in the trust of god. Satan himself was vain. Pride will keep people from true salvation. God allowed his only lamb to cleanse your sin. Have you said the name of The Lord in vain. Will you enter the kingdom of heaven. Anytime you say his name in a useless way it's saying his name in vain.

Almost
(Part of the Revival 2013 series).
Almost means nearly or very close. It is an excuse. God has given us a right mind. God rewards faithfulness. Salvation is not about what you do. Exam yourself to know whether or not you've been saved. You should have an affirmation of your salvation. You should respond to the call. He will finish any work he has started. He is looking for a willing vessel. Confession is good for the soul! You are held accountable for what you know. If you will draw nigh to The Lord, he will draw nigh to you. God is cultivating your heart. He makes his abode on the inside. Do you have a desire to follow The Lord? You aren't doing God any favors. It's not about"I" it's about him. The church is spiraling upward. The Lord gives power and sound mind not fear. Even in your failures and mistakes, you can't fall away from his grace. The law is written on your heart. Forsake all to follow him! If you are right with God you can be right with anyone. You won't continue in sin. Flee from even the appearance of sin. Life and death is right before you and all you have to do is be saved. You aren't alone and he wants to give you all he has to offer. But, you have to let go and run to The Lord. You are begotten by the word. You can't serve God if you are not right with your brother. Love is where it's at. Today is the day to proclaim the gospel. Just let go and sell out! All you have to do is come and dine. Persecution is coming. If you listen to the devil you will walk a mile with him before you realize it. Does what you have, have spiritual value? Do you have a counterfeit? If it didn't cost you something it probably wasn't worth anything. Are you changing? Or are you stagnant? Almost thou persuadest me... You know the truth.
Preached by Jason Blair on June 18, 2013 (Revival).
