|Work It Out!|
|Philippians 2:8-13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Christ is the boss in a Christians life. At the name of Jesus Christ everything will bow and confess that HE IS LORD. Until one understands first that Christ is lord over all you'll never understand the next part. One must work out their own salvation with fear and trembling. No other thing will one answer to but Christ Himself. One can not work to their salvation. Too many people once they hit a road block they just lay it to the side and stop. One can't work out someone else's but only their own. If God has given you 5 things to do, He expects you to work on those 5 things and nothing less and nothing more. If you've been born again then you have at least one talent that should be worked.|

|James 2:14-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There's a difference between saying and doing. There are many people that are willing to make the statement that they believe that Jesus is the son of God. On top of that is that there are those that will pat those people on the back and tell them that they are alright with God. Having your name on the church books doesn't give one more faith or make one saved. Some today say it all day long that they believe but nothing to prove it. There is a difference between saying it and doing it. Their are pastors that tell there congregants that all they have to do is simply say it and they'll be saved. "Repeat after me..." We still live in a society that state they're saved but have no true evidence of such. Getting saved is not anything that a preacher does but an operation that is done by Christ Himself. Just because you tell the devil to flee means nothing because it's the Holy Spirit that causes the devils to leave. Not everyone that says Lord, Lord will be in Heaven. Matt 7:22-23, Have we not done wonderful things in your name? Jesus Christ loves you and does not want you to go to Hell. Make sure you're saved! Even the Devils and Satan say they believe in God but as we all now they are ALL destined for Hell. The Holy Spirit MUST reveal unto you that you're lost before you can be saved. You can go thru the motions, say all the right things but if Christ hasn't invited and revealed to you then you're wasting your time and hurting others. James 2:23, Abraham said he believed God. But God tested him and thru his works/faith it was shown that he truly was a "Friend of God". Is you're faith real? Has it stood the test of time? Has it wavered? Is it your faith alone and not someone else's?|

|The Crown That We Will Receive|
|2 Timothy 4:6-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Most of the time we try prep for what's coming. We often go to the grocery store to purchase groceries because we must prep for an upcoming meal. In our human bodies we all know that there is an end coming, death. We must prepare for that day just as we prepared for the upcoming meal. The difference is that we don't know when death will come. There is a work for us all to do, whether they be good or bad is to be judged at our death. In our humanly body we most all of us have worked a job. If we had worked two weeks and not received a paycheck, we would probably be slightly upset. Just the same, if the employer paid you in advance and you never did the work. So where do you place yourself in your commitment level when it comes to doing Gods work? There's a reason that we work for Christ. You must examine yourselves and make sure that you've fought a good fight the best that you could. One can't work themselves into Heaven, only by grace alone will one be allowed into Heaven. 2 Timothy 4:8; crown of righteousness James 1:12; crown of life 1 Peter 5:4; crown of glory Rev 4:4; crowns of gold Is it right to reward a person that does nothing versus a person that does it all? Rev 4:8-10 These crowns were given back to Jesus, cast at His feet by those that earned the crowns. Something that we could give back only because He is worthy and not us. Just imagine being there and not having anything to give back.|

|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.|

|No Excuses, Pastors, Peace, Warn & Comfort|
|1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We should be living and growing towards God. Here you will see a series of things that need to be done. There are many religions or cults that are based on works and works only. The truth is that works without being saved is nothing, empty.
No Excuses: Eph 4:1 Christians are not excused for Gods work. Every Christian has been called by God to do His duties. The flesh wants to only do what pleases it and it is lazy and wants to not do anything. 2 Tim 1:12-13 we should hold fast the Word of God, truth.
Pastors: 1 Thes 5:12-13 Christians should understand fully the work of the pastor. We should love them and lift them up before God. It's not the person but the function that should be cherished and loved. Man didn't setup the church, God did and ordained it as His.
Peace: We should also be at peace with each other and not bicker amongst ourselves. Rom 12:18 if two people are saved then peace should be between the two. Rom 14:19 we should follow after things that are peaceful with others. There is no place within the body of Christ for grudges. Psa 133:1 it's always good for unity between the Christian.
Warn: 1 Thes 5:14 we as Christians should warn the unruly or unholy. This means that in love we should approach a fellow Christian and warn them that what they are on the wrong path. We should care enough for the brethren to warn them.
Comfort: 1 Thes 5:14 if one lives long enough the less your mind remembers. We should comfort those that can not care for themselves. Gal 6:2 The body of Christ should care for those that can't do for themselves. Supporting the weak or broken. We sacrifice to give to others that give themselves.
