|Faith Like Peter|
|(Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
There's a lot of people today that are a saved and in their way to Heaven but God is wanting you to change. The church has become satisfied with their salvation. God has a plan for each and every person. We all need to be broken by God because He is wanting to put you back together in the way He wants you to be. Just as Peter people come to church and witness from afar and never get close to God. Does the Word of God have authority in your life? You've got to apply the Word of God to your life.
A fountain can not bring forth sweet and bitter water at the same time. If your language is of the world, swearing and cussing then you've allowed the world into your heart. You're teaching the world Jesus is nothing to you. Just as the rudder on a massive ship is small but turn the entire ship, our tongue is small but can destroy your witness for God. The Word of God is quick and powerful! God knows your heart better than you do and He knows just how to convict you of your disgusting sin.
Have you ever done something that you know you shouldn't have done? Have you ever denied your savior? When God chastises us it hurts but it also hurts Him when we sin and when He has to chastise us for He loves us and wants us to do better. Just as a loving parent must chastise their children. Thank God for second chances. God could call you home after one time of a sinful act but He loves us and gives second chances.
How hard is it to go out into your community and invite your neighbors? Do you why some churches are dark and cold? Cause their members are not bringing the light with them.
There will be times that God will allow to come on us to simply change us. Sometimes God will allow you to struggle with it until you get to the point till you can't take it anymore and surrender to Him. Just as a butterfly is formed, there is a process to it. What once was a ugly worm will began to transform into a beautiful colorful butterfly. If you've been saved then you've been transformed by God to a beautiful being of Gods love.
When the going gets tough do you just give up? That's like reaching up and slapping God in the face saying you don't need it. Gods got something for you and it will help you. Don't sit and think that you need to wait for your turn. God wants to change you right now.

|Always Give Thanks|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We often find ourselves complaining instead of giving thanks. There's never a time where we shouldn't praise God. In our darkest hour we should praise God. It's certainly easy to thank God during the good times. No matter what you'll go thru some sort of trouble in your life and when it comes, praise God. We should always rejoice because God has us in His hand and will never let us go. God never said we would live a life of ease. He in fact said that when the trials and troubles come, He would be there...ALWAYS. There are things that we must go thru, difficult things. God knows what you're going thru. God said that whatever suffering you're going thru is for your benefit. Whether we understand what we are going thru, it's always good thru Christ.|

|Reaping When We Faint Not|
|2 Corinthians 4:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The devil wants us to stay busy with worldly things. If you have a job, you are away most of your time away from the most precious gifts that God has given. The news of today contains wars and battles against each other, mostly religious wars. Not only do we see the news, but also find ourselves fighting with ourselves, laziness. We were all promised victory through Jesus Christ. The devil will use all kinds of things to try to bring you down and get your mind off of God. The devil will use the smallest things like a cell phone to divert your path and thoughts. VBS is something that one can't go into without prayer. We can not be pushed down by the devil. Galatians 6:9 In 2012, 48% are protestants, 53% in 2007 and in 1970, 66%. The rest claimed no religious affiliation. In 2012 we had no christian presidential background and no supreme court judge. There will be a great falling away. So what are Christians to do? Are you going to just take getting beat up by the devil. Do you have friends that don't care about church or religion at all? How much is a soul worth? If you're saved, are you glad that someone told you about God? Knowledge is just facts, wisdom is taking the facts and using them. There should be a concern towards the lost and backslid. Don't let the ones that don't participate to hold you back in working for God. Jesus paved the path through His life on earth. Christ was tempted just as much if not more than we are. Jesus was mocked while He was on the cross but He was able to see past the cross to see the will of His father. There are multiple ways to reach the lost and backslid but there is ONLY one way to Christ. We are to live our testimony in front of others at all times. Protect it because it's very, very special. Are you a pessimist or an optimist? It's very easy for us a Christians to become a pessimist because of the ugliness that the devil will show you. Is your pew half empty or half full? Once you're saved you can't just sit down and rest. Back before Jesus the sacrifices of the animals only covered the sins. When Jesus gave His life, He washed the sins away.|

|Knowing Is Not Enough|
|Mark 12:28-34 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you deny the existence of God, then you can't believe Him. God is not looking for a blood sacrifice from you. God sent His only son to shed His blood for the ultimate sacrifices. We can do all the good works but if you left God out then it was all in vain. The greatest commandment of all is to love God. If you can't love God with all of your heart, you'll need to evaluate your life. If some called you with a million dollars, would you say, "where do I sign for it"? Is your job more important than God? Would you sell everything you have to follow Him? Do you love God with all of your mind? Do you love God with all of your soul/heart? Do you love God with all of your strength? Are you too tired for God? We are all selfish by nature. Would you charge yourself interest? Why do you loan objects to others expecting them back? How close do you come to God? You can't just know of Him, you MUST have a relationship with Him.|

|The Power Of The Tongue|
|James 3:1-12 (Part of the Spiritual Maturity series).|
|Listen instead of talking. Because of words there are likely people that do not attend church or bear a grudge. A fire starts with a small flame and can grow to a huge blaze. A fire heats things up. A single word can create a heated conversation or situation. A fire can be painful, once started it can be difficult to contain so it spreads and fires destroy.|
