|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.

|Get On Board the S.S. Grace|
|Genesis 6:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|SS sometimes stood for sailing ship or steamship but think about safe and secure. The world right now is spiraling out of control with evil. We all come into another SS which is sin sick. When Jesus laid His body down for the ultimate sacrifice He offered up His own blood to a His father for all of our sins then and now.
Noah had to proclaim for about 120 years that their time was numbered. Everyone made fun of him and called him crazy because of what he was telling them about water falling from the sky. They'd never seen anything like that because the earth was watered from the ground up. Just like today's times, we are warning others about a his second coming but everyone mocks the Christian because they haven't seen Jesus.
The door of the ark was shut and sealed. Jesus will only come to a lost person so many times to which He only promises but one time. When you turn Him away, you've shut the door to Christ and once the door is shut, it's shut for good. Your fate is forever sealed. During the flood not only was it raining from above but water was coming up from the ground as well. It did this for 40 days and 40 nights across the entire world. It created a new world fresh with Noah's family which followed a Gods word.
Moses', his mother knew he was to be killed so she made an ark out of weeds, bulrush. God told the woman that found him that she couldn't do on her own so she set out to find a help. The help was actually Moses very own mother to which she raised him right in the middle of the people that wanted to kill him.
There was a ship that Paul was on and a really bad storm set in. God came to Paul and told him that they were to lose everything they had except their lives as long as they stayed in the ship. They ran aground and the ship tore apart but the people never let go of the ship. None of them lost there lives because they obeyed and never left the ship however they lost everything they had.
Religion will not save a person. Never has, never will.

|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.|

|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.|
