|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|The Cross and the Crown (Part 1 of 2)|
|Galatians 6:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The cross is an emblem of Jesus' sacrifice. The power of God is represented by the cross of salvation. Mat 16 tells us that we also have a cross to bear. The cross was not Jesus' to bear but our sins, but He bore them for all. Just because you might be sick or worried is not a cross to bear for Christ but a general ailment because we are human. The cross we must bear is of that after salvation, the flesh wants what the spirit can't have. It's a constant battle that is never ending being a child of God. How many are ashamed of their salvation hiding it from others? Is it a burden, no, it's a purpose from Christ. Each child of God has their own cross that they must bear and can only be carried by themselves. Why do we need a cross? It will keep one humbled. It was beyond the cross of Calvary that kept Jesus motivated. The cross will keep one to praying. Jesus prayed before in the garden because of the cross and what was to come. The cross has multiple purposes but the things of the flesh we should crucify daily. We should take those sins and fleshly wants to the cross and crucify them. So not only is the cross an emblem to the world of the power of God but it's also a help in the very time of need in removing fleshly wants. We should be giving ourselves as a living sacrifice. Too many people want to classify themselves as a Christian on Sunday but live like the world all the other days. A cross hung around ones neck is just a piece of jewelry and can't and won't make one a Christian. The cross is the belief that Jesus Christ hung and died for your sins.|

|We Need to Rebuild the Altar of God|
|1 Kings 18:30-39 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Mans heart is continually evil when there's no God in it. We all have a God shaped hole that can only be answered and filled by God Himself. It's not enough we come to church and nod at the preacher and pray little prayers. Prayer needs to be a two way straight. Our relationship with God should be a two way relationship. That's how we grow. Pray! Things don't happen because we don't pray. We need to repair the altars. How do they get broken down? 1. On purpose - willfully contrary to God living as if they have no God. 2. Weak - some who have not grown in the Lord neglected the truth and need to use what God has given them. If God can do all things then why are they not happening? Because we didn't ask. These small prayers of food and clothes are already provided for. We should seek God for the extraordinary. Altars are necessary points of intersection. Most of us pray selfish prayers. We've not surrendered to the will of God. If you get serious with God, He'll get serious with you. There's a reason to pray for the souls of mankind that need intercession. A sacrifice is involved at the altar of God in order to get right with God. We must get rid of something. The altar of God is a place of intercession and sacrifice. Prayer is a dialogue and not a monologue. Anything you rely on that's not God is Baal, a false god. The altars of God are also of faith. The altar was established for the people to restore the people back to God. When you pray, believe God can do the things you ask and He will. When you truly commit yourself to prayer your life will change. The altar is also a place of action. Gods children are more than spectators. We have an active work to do. Every member of the body of God is expected to carry the load. Not just a few but everyone should do their part. We have to respond as a people to God in order to see prayers answered and live changed.|

|Go Back If You Can|
|Ruth 1:15-18 (Part of the Ruth 1 series).|
|What are you holding onto? Religion, family, church, etc but none of that will save you from hell. The attendance to a church will not matter in the end. The only thing that will matter is why you were or not in attendance. Matthew 8, If you love your parents more than God, they have become your god. Luke 9, Jesus did not say we should not care for our families but to make sure that the motive isn't worshiping them. Some are holding onto something that will drag them straight to hell. You just let go of it and turn to God. Luke 17, Lots wife turned back because she couldn't let her sin go. If you make a choice to follow Christ (Salvation) then you've made a decision to never turn your back on Him. 2 Peter 2, One can NOT keep themselves saved. If it's of their own "salvation" they will soon turn to what they truly are, a sinner that is lost. Will you stay with Jesus? Who are the people of God? People fall all the time but there is a difference in falling and going back. Falling means you'll get back up, going back means you never had it to begin with. Joshua 24:14-15|

|Afraid of Worship|
|(Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When was the last time you went into His chamber and danced? When do you go into His court and simply praise Him? Sell out to God and you'll find something greater than the world. How can you get enough of God out of one service to not want to come back on Sunday and Wednesday nights? When we look on every corner we've all got problems and the enemy stands against us, but God is for us and nothing can stand against God. Praise God for that! Seems like people back in the day were more apt to shout for God. When we step into the church house we step into a place of holiness. If shouting embarrasses you, you might be in the wrong place. Heaven will be full of shouting. We should all get to the point where the "can't help it"'s take over. We worry about things when we shouldn't. Nothing can touch you until it goes through God first. Sunday's are not the only time to rest and experience God. We can all experience God at anytime that we lay ourselves down and lift up His name. What hinders us is others and what they may think of us.|
