|A Little Space For Grace|
|Ezra 9:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you know that a person has been given ever opportunity to make things right with God but they don't take it? The preacher can warn and scold but nothing will change until those begin to turn from their wicked ways. God loves the sinner. There is and will be a great price to pay for sins and rebellion. Satan doesn't want anyone to have any victory with God. So where is the church right now? Ezra 9:8; each and every time the Christian takes one step in Gods direction Satan is two steps on their heals. We still have a problem to this day and it's called sin. If you call yourself holy, a Christian, then you have a terrible urge to satisfy your flesh. The only way to find true victory is to turn your back to sin. We are living in a little space of grace. Compared to eternity this time that we live on earth is just a short time. One reason that grace is still here is to allow a way of escape. Isa 55:6; there is a end where grace will be no more. Seek Him while grace is here. Another reason is to be a nail for God. Once He saves you, be an anchor, unmovable. We are secure in His grace. The last reason is to support. God will never stop loving His sheep, searching, providing for, building up, reviving. In the end of a Christians life, they will be revived with Him for eternity. Grace expires when the rapture occurs.|

|There Is No Grey Area|
|2 Thessalonians 1:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God is just in ALL that He does. He doesn't have to give us an answer on why He does certain things. Salvation is a personal decision and no one but oneself can accept it. Just because a family member was a good person and attended church or a pastor told you that you were saved doesn't make you saved.
There is an end to those that reject Christ. You can either be with Christ or against Him. The wrath of God will be poured out on the unbelievers. At some point or another each and every person is a wicked person. In order to have the wickedness removed one must be born again.
If you've refused Christ then you will be placed into an eternal separation of God. You will be able to see the goodness but will never experience it. So not only will you be in a fire that will never go out where it constantly licks at your skin but a pain that will never go numb.
Some say that God is a someone that hates but it's the furthest thing from the truth. God took is only son and sacrificed Him to allow a way for ALL to be able to be forever loved.
When you die and reach the God the judge, you will say amen to your own sins. It is a personal Salvation, personal sin and one will answer for their own doings. God knows the length of your days and you or anyone else can not control when it comes.

|Will You Believe In Jesus Christ|
|John 6:53-59 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Jesus was God in the flesh. Many don't want to accept the fact that Jesus is God in the flesh. They view Him as just a simple man. Jesus Christ is part of the third part of the Godhead. Unless you accept Jesus Christ as whom He is, you may have NO part of Him. All one has to do is just believe. The communion service is just a representation of the broken flesh and bitter blood of Jesus Christ. When one partakes of the bread and wine they are saying that they accept Christ as being the Son of God. The only restrictions that we as our church has on the communion is that one must be born again to partake of it. Jesus was born of a virgin, He walked sinless on earth and He was sacrificed for our sins. There has been NO other person that's done that. It's simple, one must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He is the only way to Salvation.|

|Support, Patient, Vengeance & Follow Good|
|1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We as Christians have no excuse to live right. Our flesh is weak, the lust of it and the pride of the eye causes a hindrance to all.
Support: In order to support the weak then that means you'll have to be stronger than them. If the blind leads the blind then they will surely end up in the ditch. Christians should give unto those that are lesser. For a lot of people, they would rather be served than to serve others.
Patient: If you do anything for anyone then you'll need patience. Eph 4 Usually or enemy is one in whom we have a complete lack of patience. How often do we give up simply because something didn't turn out the way we thought it should have.
Vengeance: Take no vengeance to yourself. If someone hits you in the face then you should offer the other cheek. Our flesh will tell one to retaliate against others that do us wrong. Jesus himself had every right to "get even" to those that tortured Him, but He didn't! We all deserved and still deserve death for the treatment of Christ still to this day.
Follow Good: We should always follow what is good. The flesh struggles with this daily. When one respond with mercy, compassion and forgiveness to others, this is different than the norm. Monday shouldn't be any different than Sunday. So what is good? A worship service that's spirit filled. The word of God, loving others and praying for others. All of these things are good things.

|1 Thessalonians 5:12-28 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|In order to perform the Christian duties, one must be sanctified. Many will think they are doing His will but in their end, God will tell them that He never knew them.
Sanctified means, set apart. More importantly, separated from evil. The question is not about what's on the inside for if you've been saved, God dwells within. The truth is, is that the outside is flesh and it fails daily will always fail until it's made into a heavenly body.
2 Cor 6:17, a Christian should be different than the world. Heb 10:14, for a Christian the inside (soul) is what's made new, the outside remains the same. The outward is a constant battle to bring under subjection. 2 Tim 1:12, we as Christians can not keep our salvation because it wasn't us that saved us. Once we are saved, we are always saved. We as humans have plaques that trouble the flesh. Lusts of the flesh cause us as humans to fall short of His perfectness. However, we must repent of our sins when the sins are realized and pointed out by God. God has never made a mistake therefore when He saved you, it wasn't a mistake and He will not take it back. Gods word has not changed and will not change.
We should remove ourselves from the worldly things. Most don't like to step away because it sets the up to be ridiculed. How is anyone to know that a Christian is a Christian if they do the same things as a lost person? There's a lot of Christians that want to get better. The reason is because they want to bless God, He's worth it! But, serving God brings forth works and that's what the world will see. Now salvation is NOT about works, works is the result of salvation.
Titus 3:8, sanctification and works are linked because you can't have works from God until you've been sanctified. We as Christian should follow, obey and serve Him because we are in a great debt because God has paid for our sins. Please stop and make sure you're not going along with the crowd. Did you know that someone is ALWAYS watching you? Heb 10:24, you won't find a lot of talk about works in a Baptist church because it's easily confused for non believers. Just as its been said, works are the result of salvation. Works without salvation is just work and will not be recognized by Christ as works for Him in the end. Christians can't do the work of God on their own. In order to make Holy fruit, it has to start with something Holy.Are you saved? One can't move to the next step unless they've been saved. Check your heart, have you been saved?
