|How To Be Happy|
|Psalm 1:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What's going on in our world right now? Just a few years ago folks loved to worship God and couldn't wait to worship God and depending on God for everything. The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. For all of us there is two parts to us, a flesh and a spiritual. Blessed is the man that doesn't walk with the world. Satan doesn't want us to tell anyone about the goodness of God or invite folks or even yourself to church. So how can a man or woman be happy? There is only one thing that can make one happy. Which would you rather have, something that's temporary or something that's eternal?

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|The Cross and the Crown (Part 2 of 2)|
|1 Corinthians 9:18-27 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If there was nothing more than peace on earth, then it would be worth it all. But there is another place that been prepared for those that are born again. Some say that if that could just get in the gate to Heaven then it'll be alright. But this is not biblical. Just as running a marathon, practice and self discipline is much needed. All the track running and winning one can do will bring forth great gifts of money and trophies. These items will all burn up and are only temporary. People do not see the gift of God therefor they do not do Gods Work in order to obtain His reward. In this world we must carry our cross, burdens but in the end you'll trade your cross for a crown. James 1:12 the crown of life. Heaven will never end, life everlasting, the greatest reward of being born again. People live and die by your testimony. 2 Tim 4:8 there will be a crown of righteousness if we have done our part and love Jesus and worked for Him. 1 Peter 5:4 a crown of Glory will be obtained by those that preach His word. Rev 5:8-10 these are the descriptions of the elders, those that have been born again. Rev 4:9-11 this is the reason we as a Christian have crowns. The more you can do for God as a Christian, the more you'll have to lay at His feet to honor Him.|

|Are You Bearing Good Fruit?|
|Galatians 5:16-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|To live in the spirit you must be born again. There was a reason that Jesus had to go away. If He had not gone away then the comforter would not have come. If you're saved then you should act that way. Gal 5:19-21 bind one to the world and should not be a part of a Christians life. Gal 5:22-24 should be reflected by a Christians life at all times. Are you bearing good fruit? A person can not love unconditionally without the love of Christ and in order to have that one must be saved. The unsaved can only love if they are loved back. The Spirit of God is to be active and not dormant in a Christians life. If no one is able to see your fruit, is it really there? The second thing that God produces is joy. Joy can not be produced by a person. What you feel when something makes you happy is only temporary and will eventually disappear. Most "joy" down here is a lust of the flesh happiness. Jesus gives us unspeakable joy that is everlasting. Peace, another fruit that's given during Salvation. Peace that can surpass all troubles and difficulties. Nothing can give a person peace like Jesus can. Jesus may not move the mountain in your life but He will give you the peace to climb it. Longsuffering a fruit from God above and an attribute of patience. When our loved once are living dangerously in the world and God tells you to let God have them, that requires much patience and longsuffering. A Christian should have gentleness. How many times have you wanted to "get even"? Don't overlook gentleness because it's a tough one in the world we live in. Goodness, there is none good but the fruit of the Spirit can produce it. If there has ever been a time to need good Chrisitians, it's now. Those Christians that would get into the ditch to help another without thinking about themselves. The faith that we have comes from God because without it we would struggle to believe. So how does one receive the faith? Walk in the Spirit. Where we can't, He will. All of the fruits of the Spirit is what Jesus had, therefore being a Christian is being "Christ like". Love those that hate you, pray for those that hate you, care for those that are enemies to you. Those things are meekness. Temperance or self-control. We could all use more temperance. We live in the world full of addictions, pornography, drugs, sexual sins, all lusts of the flesh. All nine of these things can not be produced by oneself. They can only be produced by God alone thru Salvation.|

|From Faith To Trust|
|Proverbs 3:5-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Faith and trust are not the same. Just because you believe God doesn't mean you trust Him. Faith is believing in something that you have no visible proof of. If you don't believe in God doesn't make Him not there. It takes faith in God to be saved. Trust is the actual work in which we believe. You can believe that a parachute will save you but until you use or proven it you can't trust it. Once you jump out of the plane you lose all control until you put all your trust in the parachute. Mark 9:23, Eph 3:23, Heb 13:5, John 3:16, Rom 5:8 We believe in these things but do you put your trust in them? We should turn loose of this world and put all trust in God. God is calling us into something that we no control over. We believe that thru God all things are possible but we bring Him down to that of a person and not fully trust Him. God wants to navigate you thru all things in life but unless you put all your trust in Him, He can't do that. Psalm 33:5, 1 Peter 1:6-7, Rom 8:28 Turn loose of this world and let God guide you.|
