|Stay Away From Evil Things|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|People don't want to hear this saying anymore. People want to live the way they want to, however they want and whenever they want. Once you're born again you are no longer yourself but holy. How many of you have damaged your testimony because you've messed with something that you know you shouldn't had? Did you know that people are watching you whether you want them to or not? To some people the only "bible" they know is thru your life. Staying away from evil cramps people's style.
Let's just be honest for just a minute, look in the mirror and you should see a person that has problems with staying away from evil. One of the hardest things to do is to control the tongue. The scripture doesn't just apply to the preachers or deacons. It was addressed to ALL Christians.
It's very difficult to get a persons confidence back after it's been lost. You're the one that the lost is watching and taking note on your actions. Christians have been pulled out of the world and therefore shouldn't be IN the world. The lost are constantly looking for hypocrites.
One must prove it first to make sure it's of a Godly nature. Do the "smell test". Stop and take the time to evaluate prior to doing them. There is no grey area when it comes to right or wrong. The grey area is created by us that wants to feel good about doing something wrong, therefore it would classified as wrong. The power of the church is based upon the faithfulness or life of its members. Phil 4:8, there are things that should be done in front of the lost.
One can't unscramble the eggs or put the toothpaste back into the tube. What do you do if you've messed things up with your testimony/life? Change, there is an expectation that each time you attend church there should be a change. When we change the lost will see it and want to know what's the difference. We should apologize to them for acting out wrong.

|How To Be Happy|
|Psalm 1:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What's going on in our world right now? Just a few years ago folks loved to worship God and couldn't wait to worship God and depending on God for everything. The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. For all of us there is two parts to us, a flesh and a spiritual. Blessed is the man that doesn't walk with the world. Satan doesn't want us to tell anyone about the goodness of God or invite folks or even yourself to church. So how can a man or woman be happy? There is only one thing that can make one happy. Which would you rather have, something that's temporary or something that's eternal?

|Are You Trying To Please God?|
|2 Corinthians 5:8-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God is watching and He cares how you walk, talk, dress and act. We know that God can be pleased by our doings but just as He can be pleased He can also be displeased. He co trolls everything in our lives including our breath. It should be our top priority to please God with everything we do. Can you say that you've got the promise of God that you've been saved? Just because you've been promised a heavenly rest doesn't mean you'll have pain to go thru down here. While we are here we should labor and labor hard for God. God has given us that are saved blessings in order to bring forth a harvest. The only thing you have to give is what God gave you. In the end of time there will be a judgement of the good and bad. But there is a judgement for the lost, the wicked, the dead that the saved will not be apart of. The judgement for the children of God requires a reward ceremony for the good things we had done for God while here. Your works whether good or bad will not keep you out of heaven because your salvation is the only way into heaven and can not be taken away. God is not confused with whether you're lost or saved and has trusted you with His talents. What have you done with them?|

|An Attitude of Gratitude|
|Ephesians 5:8-20 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Giving thanks always for all things. There are some things we don't give thanks for cause we don't like them. So how can you give thanks for all things even the bad? We must understand and know that nothing touches us without it being ok'd by God first. Widows that's lost their loved ones that still lift their hands to say that God has been so good to them. There is plenty to complain about in this world in the flesh. There isn't a person that has not suffered. Those that suffer and are Christians discover that God helps them and is present in the sorrow. The lost will suffer alone and without God's help. Our problem is that we are afraid of Gods finest because it requires sorrow, purification and trials. But through them all, God is their and in full control. All things work to the goodness of God. The good stuff isn't usually just laying on the surface. What would you do if something bad happens to you? Prepare yourself for those things to happen. Put all your trust in the Lord.|

|Are You Just Running or Running to Win? (Part 1)|
|2 Peter 1:1-3 (Part of the 2 Peter 1 series).|
|Your opinion doesn't matter when it comes to what God knows. When you learn the wrong thing, it will lead you down the wrong path. The world can not show or teach you peace. Being saved means that for all of us that are saved have a commonality. We've all came thru the same Jesus Christ and nothing else. Being good will not get you to Salvation. No ones salvation is better than the next. Preacher's salvation isn't any stronger than a lay member. How many excuses can you think of when God simply asks you to do something? What's your agenda for attending church or listening to this sermon? Why do we settle for "alright" salvation. We have zero excuses to sit down on God. Romans 10:13 plainly states that you should simply ask to be born again but Romans 10:14 says but how can they ask if they haven't heard of Jesus Christ. Those of us that are called, saved, have every second of our lives to share Jesus to the lost. Did you know that you can do ANYTHING that God wants? The problem is that we limit ourselves through excuses. Psalms 119:27 we shouldn't be afraid of what God wants us to do. Has He not already called you to do something great? Some of us are bound by our doubts. One of the greatest sins of the saved is omission. The omission of showing Jesus Christ to the lost around us and living like Jesus Christ lives within us. There are those that no matter what's going on around them, they are happy, always. Why is that, that one could be happy no matter what? They have Jesus that lives within them and holds all peace and happiness. Phil 3:8, 1 Tim 3:4 do you think God wants you to know what's in His book? God has called us to glory and virtue. One can't produce Spiritual fruit if you're not Spiritual or saved. But if you are saved you should always be bearing Spiritual fruit.|
