|Bloom Where You're Planted|
|2 Kings 5:1-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of times people live in disappointment because they live a life of unbiblical nature. How many are truly faithful to God in the really tough times? Everything around you will change but God never changes. There is no reason to why we should be depressed all of the time, it's unbiblical. How many times to we put on the bullseye and just ask for the bad stuff to just hit us? We should choose to believe God no matter the circumstances. We should rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. If you're walking around and state that you're suffering for Christ, then you're living a lie. We as a Christian have a responsibility to bring hope to the lost. The maid was a slave that was taken away from her family but she decided to bloom where she was planted. She had no control over her circumstances. You must decide if you're gonna be a victim or a victor. Greater is He that is in me than that who is in the world. You know you can't uncrack an egg or put the water back under the bridge. Did you know that NOT believing God is a sin? You realize that when one makes a statement of belief that, that in itself will cause one to welcome conflict. Do you pick and choose where you make your belief known? Folks are desperate for hope in this day in time. At what point in your life did attending church become hard?|

|Psalm 92:12-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Verse thirteens importance is that there is nothing in this world that's more important than attendance in a church. Their attendance is important because Gods word when spoken will not go out in void. We shouldn't fail not to assemble ourselves together. Invest your life into the church of Jesus Christ. The purpose in planting something is to have it to flutist and grow. In order for a plant to grow it needs to be feed by light and water. Christ is the light of the world and He is the only one that can provide the living water. The things of the world will only last till death. Verse twelve talks about the palm tree. Palm trees love the heat and flourish. Their roots are not that long and they live in sand but they endure the high winds of a hurricane. Cedars in Lebanon were prized for their wood but the cedars around here never really root. They are strong and have been used repeatedly for years. Verse fourteen talks about bearing fruit at older ages. You're as only as old as you feel but the righteous of God will continue to bear fruit. You'll never retire at doing Gods work. Verse fifteen it all goes back to God. God is worthy to brag about. All these things are done to show that God is upright.|

|Because He Is Worth It|
|Hebrews 13:7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A Christian leader is one that leads by example and by respect. Great Christian leaders that have led by examples is Henry Webb. He lived almost 3.5 miles away from the church and would walk to the church house each and every time the doors were open. He walked thru all kinds of elements because God was worth it to him. A faithful member. The sad truth is that today, most have a problem getting out of bed when it's cold outside even though our vehicles are heated as well as the church. People are watching whether you want them to or not.
Henry Webb's obituary: "Henry Webb was born June 29, 1904, and departed this life Dec. 2, 1989, being 84 years, 5 months, and 3 days of age.
Henry professed faith in Christ and joined the New Providence Primitive Baptist Church on November 9, 1969, and was baptized November 16, 1969.
He was a very faithful member of his church and loved it and the people of the church.
He labored in the building of the New Providence Church both in the first building and in the present building, the church was his life as long as he was able to attend."We should examine ourselves to make sure that what we show to the world is a godly life. God needs leaders in His church. Are you willing to be a leader? Are you able to? You must first be able before you can be a leader.

|Rules of Gift Giving|
|2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The gift of God is simply, John 3:16. He gave the unspeakable gift. Beginning from the last, everything comes from God. Not one person has anything unless it comes thru God first. We as humans are selfish creatures by nature. God wants to give you His undeserved love. Many holidays come and go and they revolve around giving, however we should be a giver everyday. If you're judging the gift by its size then you've missed the point. One doesn't give because of self, one gives because they are loved. We've been given the greatest gift, love, that it should cause one to give it back.
There should be a time when you've found yourself in want. Bills to pay, missing food on the table or even gas to fuel the car. During that time, God might come to you and ask you to give to someone else. Now money is not something that can be controlled and many of billionaires worry about it till they die.
One point to be a good giver is to give abundantly and not sparingly. Just as sowing seeds, one doesn't plant one seed expecting hundreds of plants.
Point two, give purposely. One should purpose in their heart to love God and to pray for the need or gift. God knows the need and therefore we should obey what He tells us to give.
The third point is to give freely. This doesn't mean to smile while you gift it. Without a grudge or necessity. If it bothers you to give then you're giving wrongly.
If how you give is based on how you feel at the moment then the devil will talk you out if it every time. God tries to teach His lesson on giving by your obedience. When God tells you to give, give without question. No matter how much one gives, one can NEVER out-give Gods giving. We give because if we sow it, we will reap it as long as it's done by the above three points. The second reason is because God loves a cheerful giver. Wouldn't we all want to please God? Now when the offering was being taken, God is always watching. He knows what's in your pocket, He knows what's in your heart and He knows what He told you. It's not about how much is put it but why it was put in. Our church does not tell you how much to give because an amount is not biblical in today's time. The Old Testament explain a tenth but the New Testament explains that it's based on what God tells you to give and what you're willing to give. If you're worried about giving then you're worried about the wrong thing. 2 Cor explains that always God will take care of all needs.

|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.|
