|1 Thessalonians 5:21 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|No matter who is doing the teaching or preaching we should always know if it's the truth or not. There are many that for many years claim to be Christian but don't even know what the bible says. How can you check what is being taught if you don't know what the truth is? The only source of truth is the Word of God. 1 John 4:1, there are a lot of wolves in sheep clothing. We should not be live every spirit because not all spirits are good. A preacher should always be reading and have the bible with them at all times. Opinions are not truth but of personal thoughts. Preachers can lead you wrong. They can be teaching you something that they don't fully know themselves. It's not that all would intentionally mislead or misguide but simply not know and teach on assumptions. If you don't go to Sunday School then you need to start. The key word there is school. Our church is in session for about an hour learning more about Gods Word every Sunday. We should prove the preaching and to prove all things. We should know the difference between good and evil. Do you believe there is a devil? A car mass does one thing and one thing only, it points to true north. Just as the compass, the scripture points to the truth. We are pretty smart at most times and we know when we are in the middle of something that's not right. How do they know what is a counterfeit bill, they study the real. Not only should we prove what is good but we are to hold to those truths. It's a continuous process of sowing and reaping good things. The preacher can't plant the good stuff for you. He plants his own and you plant your own. In order to hold fast to the good it takes discipline. A lot of people don't like discipline because it's usually painful. Heb 10:23, you've got to make a choice and commit. Psa 119:33-34, once you've proven all things to the good then you should stick to the good, Phil 4:8.|

|No Excuses, Pastors, Peace, Warn & Comfort|
|1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We should be living and growing towards God. Here you will see a series of things that need to be done. There are many religions or cults that are based on works and works only. The truth is that works without being saved is nothing, empty.
No Excuses: Eph 4:1 Christians are not excused for Gods work. Every Christian has been called by God to do His duties. The flesh wants to only do what pleases it and it is lazy and wants to not do anything. 2 Tim 1:12-13 we should hold fast the Word of God, truth.
Pastors: 1 Thes 5:12-13 Christians should understand fully the work of the pastor. We should love them and lift them up before God. It's not the person but the function that should be cherished and loved. Man didn't setup the church, God did and ordained it as His.
Peace: We should also be at peace with each other and not bicker amongst ourselves. Rom 12:18 if two people are saved then peace should be between the two. Rom 14:19 we should follow after things that are peaceful with others. There is no place within the body of Christ for grudges. Psa 133:1 it's always good for unity between the Christian.
Warn: 1 Thes 5:14 we as Christians should warn the unruly or unholy. This means that in love we should approach a fellow Christian and warn them that what they are on the wrong path. We should care enough for the brethren to warn them.
Comfort: 1 Thes 5:14 if one lives long enough the less your mind remembers. We should comfort those that can not care for themselves. Gal 6:2 The body of Christ should care for those that can't do for themselves. Supporting the weak or broken. We sacrifice to give to others that give themselves.

|Try the Spirit, Believe not Everything|
|1 John 3:24-4:6 (Part of the Does He Abide Within? series).|
|The most important thing to know is if Jesus Christ lives inside you. There seems to be a doctrine for every person out there. They take and change the Word of God for their own agenda. It's good to learn as much as you can of the Word of God but man didn't call men to preach. Only God can call a man out to preach. Some preachers are quiet, some are loud, some are short winded and some long. False prophets are running rampant in this day and time. There are cults on every corner. One doesn't need a doctrine in theology to understand the Word of God. If it doesn't stand up with the Word of God, then don't follow it. We should be open minded because we don't know all of what God has in store for us. A spirit doesn't come without a body. Spirits have to have a body to possess. When one comes to you and tries to pull you in, try its spirit to make sure in lines up with Gods Word. When you run into issues in your life and you always call your pastor with them, you're going to the wrong "friend". You need to seek God and not a friend or preacher for you help all the time. You should learn the Spirit that lives inside you and not believe every single outward spirit you hear. In order to know the false spirits you must have and KNOW you have the Spirit of God living inside you. So how do you know that He lives inside you? First off it's not about a feeling. Just because you've had goosebumps or the hair raised up on your neck doesn't mean that the Holy Spirit lives inside you. Jesus Christ was sent from His Father as a virgin birth and was crucified for our sins and rose on the third day. If Jesus Christ didn't come to earth in the flesh then the doctrine is false. We encourage you to study the religions and their doctrines for the truth. If their entire doctrine does not line up with with the Son of God coming to earth and being crucified, then it's false and of the antichrist. Don't be troubled by the cults and false doctrines because if you are of Christ, then He is greater than those and lives inside you.|

|The Fire Has Gone Out|
|Ezekiel 19:14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|You can't be good enough to get into heaven. Two ways to heaven, sinless life or having the Blood of the Lamb applied to the soul. No room for jealousy in the life of a Christian. You can see a fire, feel it and even hear it.|

|Who's Your Father?|
|John 8:31-59 (Part of the Spiritual Maturity series).|
|Do you have a true relationship with your father? Does your life match up with your father? You say you're a Christian but you do not live the way Christ has set forth. When people see you, do they see a reflection of your Father?|
