|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.|

|Why Do You Do?|
|Philippians 3:1-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Whatever we do we should do it as we are to do it for the Lord. There are many that do things in Gods name but they don't even know Him. There are those out there that think that just because they are good or do good things means they are okay with Christ. Many so called preachers on tell many that if you're good hearted then it's alright with God. Phil 3:7-8 Where is your zeal and desire for the one that loves you? We often live in ourselves and want the things that comfort ourselves. Are you concerned if He is pleased with you? A "just get by" attitude doesn't please God. Phil 3:9-10 How many really try to know God to get closer, to know His attributes? You should desire to to know Christ like He knows you. Strive after Him! The greatest treasure that your heart would ever desire is Heaven. Everyone wants to go to Heaven but they don't know how to get there. They've been deceived on how to get there. So do you want to go to Heaven? Phil 3:12-14 We should chase after Jesus because He first loved us, not us loving Him first. Forget those things that cause you to distress. Fix your eyes on the goal ahead and go for it! There is a prize to be gained at the end of the journey. Heaven is the prize and if you miss it, you've missed it ALL. Once you get to Heaven the fighting, suffering, and longing stops. Phil 3:15 If you think different than what was just mentioned, then you're wrong and Hell bound. 2 Cor 5:9, the love of Christ should make you get up and do it all for Him because He loved you first. If you're a Christian then you have NO excuse to do what it takes for Christ.|

|Righteousness (Part 2)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Deut 30 references Rom 10:5. One must complete the law in its entirety. No one has been able to keep the law perfectly therefore we are guilty. The works of the flesh will not be accepted as a payment into Heaven. Jesus Christ would have never been sent as a sacrifice if there was another way into Heaven. Do you think you're a good person? If you're trying to get into Heaven by any other way but by Jesus Christ then you're creating a self righteous religion that will get you into Hell. There is a way that seems right but it WILL lead to death, Hell. How many people go to the doctor if they are well? Likewise, how many people will go to Jesus when everything seems to be going good? Most people judge their relationship with Christ by watching others. If that person lives just as good as they do then everything just be ok.
Perfection is the only thing that will go to Heaven. There is not a single person that has mastered perfection. What makes a person perfect is by accepting Christ as their savior. Who in their right mind would say that they would rather go to Hell than to Heaven? Christ has already done everything He can to allow you to go to Heaven.
So how do you get saved? There is one thing required and that's to believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, Rom 10:9-10;13.

|Are You Dreading the Meeting or Looking Forward to It?|
|1 John 4:7-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We know we should love but it seems hard when someone wrongs us. We must first experience the love of God first before we can love others like He loves us. How many of us are completely surrendered to God's love? When you're born again, God moves into you and dwells within you. A lot of people will tell you that they've been saved but if the Spirit isn't there, they are lost. The Spirit of God will bare witness with itself. No matter how good a person is and how much they do will not make a difference if you're lost. Perfect love will have no fear. The fear of God means that He is always above Him, not to be afraid of Him. We should reverence Him for what He has done and will do. Having perfect love means that we will not fear death and the judgement because God has cast those dreads away. For those that are born again there is a longing to be with God unlike those that are lost that dread the meeting of God. Our flesh will always want to live but being saved and having God live within us, that inward yearns to be with God. If you're thinking that being saved gives you a free ticket to sin and do whatever you want to do and yet still go to heaven, then you're lost. You're lost because the bible states that once you're born again you're made a new creature, what you once loved you will now hate.|

|The Revealed Truth|
|Matthew 2:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When Jesus was born, there wasn't a bunch of people around. There was no kings, no wise men, no princes or princesses. Still to this day He's obscured to so many. The first that came to see Jesus was the shepherds, the least of people. Then during the next 30 years Jesus went without being known. Some knew Him but most did not. Now even today, most do not know Him. But the wisemen that came months later presented to Him gifts. The truth was revealed to them by God thru the stars. Only God could make a star. We also have received the truth from God through His Word, the bible. God shows everyone His truth at some point but some turn it away. The second thing that the wisemen did was to believe. Just as their journey began, yours will begin in faith. Eph 2:8 How many have heard the truth and rejected it? Many want to celebrate Christmas but will not celebrate Jesus' birth and death. Most live as if God is a butler, a human that is to be served only when needed. The wisemen also worshipped Jesus. Those that truly surrendered to Jesus, they will worship Him. How many of you have surrendered everything unto God? Most can talk it, but they haven't done. One MUST worship God in Spirit AND in Truth.|
