|Let Your Light Shine|
|Matthew 5:3-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
The children are the church of tomorrow and we should be striving to bring them to Jesus or take Jesus to them. Our children go thru a lot more than what we would have ever dreamed about during their time in school. We can't save a person but we must love them and explain to them that God loves them.
A lot of churches today don't care about the salvation but mostly about the number that's seated in the sanctuary. Salvation is more than a church attendance. Make sure the church that you attend is following the Word of God and in order for you to know this, you must study it for yourself.
Make sure you let your light shine to others. It might be small but it's still a light in the world full of darkness. The truth of salvation is that once your saved, that is when your battle truly will begin. Satan will not bother you while your lost because your still one of his. After salvation your one of Gods and Satan will try his best to cause you to stumble to show others that they do not need salvation. Salvation requires work and that work is specialized to your soul. God calls each person to do a work. To some, it might be praying, others it could be missions and then the next it could be to simply testify.
A lot of people don't get saved because they worry what others might think. The truth is, don't let them discourage you into Hell. When God removes a sin or a problem from your life, don't pick it back up. He removed it, don't let Satan talk you back into it! If being saved promised you a life of luxury then there wouldn't be anyone turning it away. There's not anyone that wouldn't want to live a perfect life of happiness where things ALWAYS go their way. The truth about a humans life is that we ALL have ups and downs and nothing can make it a perfect life. But having Jesus in your life means you have someone to fight for you in your times of need. It also means that when you die, you'll have an eternal life of happiness and joy everlasting. Passing away without Jesus means you'll live your eternal life in Hell where you'll be tormented unlike anything you've ever imagined.

|Hebrews 13:10 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
|Some will say that the Old Testament has no place in today's world however, it teaches us what was to come from within the New Testaments. A tabernacle, covenant and a priest was needed in the Old Testament for the Jews. Exodus 25:8 was the start of the tabernacle. Heb 9:1-5 Heb 9:6-8 explains that this way was temporary meaning Christ would come to change it and make a better way. Having a sacrifice for a sin was a horrible thing. Perfect, innocent sheep and other animals having their necks sliced and their blood drawn for the sins of the Jews. Christ would soon come as a sacrifice one time and forever more.
The Priest Lev 16:2-4 The only one that could come into the Holy of Holies was one appointed person which was the High Priest. The high priest, Aaron was to use the sacrifice first and offer it up because he himself was not perfect. Then he had to go out and back and use the two goats, a scapegoat and an offering goat and sacrifice one of the goats. The blood was then offered up for the people's sins. The priest had to be clean, not only from sin but his flesh also. We have lost over time the word of God because of the easiness of grace. The Jew knew that they had to prepare themselves for God, we usually do not. Heb 5:1-3 The priest was chosen from among men. Christ was taken among men (born as a human). Heb 5:4-10 Jesus was born as a man to suffer as a man but remained sinless. Heb 4:14-16 Jesus Christ is our now high priest, forever more. Underneath the grace was a way paved in blood all the while saying there is but only ONE way to God.

|You Better Know It|
|Ephesians 2:8-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Many folks will tell you that there are many ways into Heaven. In the beginning God created everything. Throughout time before you can create something one must have something first. When God created the heavens and the earth He created something out of nothing. The ones that have died and gone to Hell, they all wish that they listened to the ones that warned them about Hell and how to avoid it. What is the will of God? It's not Gods will that anyone perish, therefore He wants everyone to go to Heaven. It's your choice to go to heaven when God calls you to be saved. There are a lot of good people in the world. Some do good works because they want the attention while others do it because they care or love others. But no amount of good works will get one into Heaven. In Matthew 7:15, God warns everyone of deceivers. We must study the bible to know the truth. There are some leaders that lead falsely for money, attention or simply because they are being deceived themselves. Know your bible inside and out, bury it deep inside your heart. Some will say that the old, KJV writings is too hard to understand, they are correct but it's not the translations. It's a heart condition, one should study no matter how hard it is, study and pray for God to give you the understanding.|

|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.|

|Get the Good Stuff|
|Hebrews 9:1-15 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Jesus prayed in the garden for His fathers will to be done that if there was another way that it be done. God knew that it would take His son to remove the sins of the world therefore there was no other way. God gave the best He had for the sins of the world. Many people are proud of their sins and make them something of importance. When Jesus prayed in the garden He prayed that the cup be passed, so what was in the cup? Sin... He knew that he would have to take on and drink in the sin. The sin would become Him just as when we take of the wine. The sin also has a savor, a bitterness. We know that when Christ died on the cross that He drunk the entire cup of sin and took the bitter sting of death. Jesus, in the garden, knew what a He was about to go thru and therefore was in agony. He was under so much stress that He began to sweat blood. Jesus knew with every step of the way what was going on. The "court" was completely against Him and so was the people. Jesus was human but He was also God. His flesh was just that, flesh, it was weak but His spirit was strong and kept His flesh moving. With each step He took and each whip He withstood, He was lifting the sin filled cup closer and closer to His lips. Since the beginning of time the altar had cried out for a sacrifice. Adam and Eve had a sacrifice made for them in order to cover their nakedness. Lambs and doves were used as sacrifices for the sins of many in the temples. When Jesus gave a his life as a living sacrifice for everyone's sins, the altar was finally satisfied and it no longer cries out. One of the cries from the cross was, why did God turn away from Jesus? Sin will separate you from God. When Jesus took our sins upon Himself, the sin made a Him feel as if He was separated from God. Just as a Christian sins they feel a separation from God and must repent to get close to God again.|
