|Are You A Neighbor?|
|Luke 10:25-37 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of times we try to justify ourselves instead of trusting that God knows best. God knows everything about so He knows when we are trying to get out of doing something we aught not do. You'll never be right with God if you're not right with someone else. So who is your neighbor? Your neighbor is anyone that you come into contact with. We can't mark people off or right them off because they look, act or smell a certain. Are you a neighbor? Are you in the position to where you allow things to blind you from loving someone? Are you loving others as you love yourself? Are you actively involved with others showing them that Christ died for them just as He died for you? We have NEVER merited Gods love for us. We have no right to Christ. Christ bled and died for everyone and not just a select few. How far are you willing to go? Most have a certain amount of compassion but it's limited. Once that limit is met then the compassion ends and goes no further. You realize that Christ was the neighbor that noticed you in the ditch, cut up, bruised and bullied by the world and yet He got in the ditch with you and rescued you! He came to where you were and lifted you up! Every unbeliever is on their way to death faster and faster with each breath they take. But Christ is reaching down to the lost and asking to just take a His hand. He will pull them out of the ditch they are in and set them on a full of life path. Mat 7:12|

|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.|

|What Happens When Our Awe Is Right|
|Psalm 4:1-8 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
God will hear you when you call out to Him. Did you know that prayer is NEVER out of order? If God has called you to do something, do it and God will bless you. We should have a fear of God, not in fright but in who He is. So what's it take to have a revival? Stand in awe. The world has no reverence towards God but so has the church.
We will see a difference in our sin. Our view of our sin will be different. When our heart and attitude is right then it will defend from sin. No fruit means your not connected to the tree. People shouldn't have to wonder if you're saved or not. Many like to reason with God. If His word says it's wrong, then it's wrong. If you're standing in awe of God then you ain't got time to sin. Take inventory of who God is. How do you see your sin? Are you playing with it, living with it, about to cross over the line with it?
We will have confidence to trust God. What is it that you're holding back from God that you feel that you don't trust Him? Prov 3:5-6 this roles out of our lips good but does it reflect our life? All we need is for God to hear us cause once He's heard it, it's not yours anymore. Did you know that once you trust God then it's easier to obey Him?
We will see His goodness. Psa 34:8 The things that we used to beg for have become a common place. Two leave the church house and you can ask them how church was. One will say that service was the most awesome service they've ever been in. The other will say that it went okay. It's not about the music being good. It's not about the attendance being good. It's not even about whether the preaching was good.
We will experience joy in its fullness. Mat 2:10 there was no joy after being with King Herod however when they seen the star they had great joy. One should always expect God to great things and have a great joy about it. Mat 28:6-8 when we stand in front of our Lord it will bring joy that can not be contained.
We will know the peace of His presence. Phil 4:7 how can one have peace when hell is coming against us? It's not our battle to fight, it's Gods. John 14:27 God gave you himself and that's enough.

|Always Give Thanks|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We often find ourselves complaining instead of giving thanks. There's never a time where we shouldn't praise God. In our darkest hour we should praise God. It's certainly easy to thank God during the good times. No matter what you'll go thru some sort of trouble in your life and when it comes, praise God. We should always rejoice because God has us in His hand and will never let us go. God never said we would live a life of ease. He in fact said that when the trials and troubles come, He would be there...ALWAYS. There are things that we must go thru, difficult things. God knows what you're going thru. God said that whatever suffering you're going thru is for your benefit. Whether we understand what we are going thru, it's always good thru Christ.|

|Galatians 6:7-10 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|Seems as if there is a great need for patience. Folks don't seem to want to wait anymore for just about everything. When we plant a garden we plant seeds, those seeds take time to grow. If one is patient then they should receive a great harvest.
There is a reaping whether it be a good harvest or bad. Depending on what is sowed depends on what is reaped. Consequences for sin is a harvest that can never be removed for the rest of ones life. We all have a choice to make whether they will do good or bad. Don't be deceived because the penalty for sin is great. Some of the leaders of our country are deceived. We can make laws and change them to try to make a persons live a certain way but none of these changes will ever lead to goodness. People no longer have the fear of God in their hearts therefore they live a life of worldliness. God holds your very breath and should be reverenced as such. For whatever reason God still has mercy for this country even though most have forgotten who He truly is.
No matter where you go in your life at least one of Gods people will be with you. Don't be deceived by what the world says. Just as in Noah's time, they mocked God and him as he built the ark. In the end, God sent the flood and only saved those that believed In Him, Noah's family.
Now if one plants a seed of corn then one expects a stalk of corn to grow from that seed. Why would anyone expect anything less about the choices of the way they live and sow life or death. There is a difference in knowing that you're doing wrong and continuing and not knowing. To know and do against it is called rebelling.
One can't live like they want to during the week and expect God to be worshipped on Sunday. So we should sow to the Spirit Monday thru Sunday and we will reap what we sow. How many struggle on Mondays to show your happy in your spirit? We should take every opportunity we get to uplift our fellow man especially our brothers and sisters in Christ. But, something holds us back and it's because we are humans and therefore we are sinners. We should fight against the sinful nature of our flesh striving to overcome it to uplift the name of Jesus.
If you act like, dress like, talk like and look like the world, then how is the world supposed to know that you're a Christian?
Seeds don't grow instantly, therefore don't give up. People usually don't come to Jesus instantly, don't give up on them! Keep planting the seeds of love and be patient.
