|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.

|The Love That Compels|
|2 Corinthians 5:11-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It's the love of Christ that has changed those that are Christians. There are many that are not one of His which causes a lot of confusion amongst people however, in the end of time God will separate those from His.
The love of Christ should be what motivates us. People wonder what makes Christians do what they do but it's the love of Christ. There are many that claim their works are for Christ but many of them will be turned away at their death. One thing is that we are to love our neighbors. It makes no difference about what they may have done to you because we are to forgive them. When we try to do things on our own we will run out of fuel at some point because it's us doing it not Christ. The love of Christ will cause one to move across country simply to love on someone.we had nothing to do with Christ's love. He came first to love us first.
One can't love or know what love truly is until they've been born again. A Christian doesn't work for Christ because we want to or out of duty but because He compels us to love. Christ gave ALL He had, He gave His life. He did this because He loved you and yet most still feel He still owes us something else.

|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.|
