|The Will of God|
|Romans 8:26-28 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you didn't know what to do?
Things that are known of the will of God, everything that's inside the Bible is His will. Gal 1:14; Jesus Christ gave Himself for our sins. It wasn't something that just happened. It's not Gods will that anyone should die lost. It's a personal choice when God calls that Salvation is excepted. 1 Thes; it's Gods will that we all to be holy. We should try to live sinless at all times. 1 Thes 5:13; we should also give thanks to God no matter what happens. Those are things that are known about Gods will. One must read and study Gods Word in order to know what His will is for our lives.
Just as we know what His will is, there are also things we don't know. Don't we beat ourselves up over doing the right things? Most all people don't want to do the wrong things. Now the devil likes to confuse and he can come to us and whisper to us and we are fooled into thinking it was God. This is why we are to try the spirits. Rom 8:26 is clear stating that we usually don't know what to do. Christ Himself wrestled with it in the garden making sure He was to follow thru with His sacrifice, His crucifixion. So how do we know we are doing the right thing, the Spirit of God dwells inside those that are saved and it makes intercession for those. This is the direct connection to doing the right things. Now if you've got sin in your heart then you're going to have a really hard time hearing and knowing what God says to you. This is because sin blocks out Gods communication because He can't help over the sin. Rom 8:27 this speaks about the shepherding of Jesus Christ searching out the heart and knowing the mind and whether it's truly yearning for God. If the mind of the spirit yearns for God then He makes intercession in our behalf to God His father. Rom 8:28 clearly states that ALL things work together for those that love God. The variable is that if we love the world or some of it then you're not 100% in love with God. That has always been the problem with us as humans. We should love Him more than anything else and if we do, nothing else will matter because it will ALL be taken care of.
This all sounds simple but the devil comes against us and causes us to doubt and fear. This happens because he wants to destroy us all. The little things are usually what we struggle with but put your focus on God and your relationship with Him.

|Spirit of Adoption|
|Romans 8:14-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What a joy to call God, father. In order to call Him father you must first be of His family. The Spirit of God will guide one through truth and righteousness. Just as soon as you're saved the Holy Spirit is with you. Are you following the Spirit of God not with your wisdom or intellect. God does not push you or make you do something, it's all by choice whether you will follow Him or not. You just allow God to work in you and follow Him through obedience. We all have an adversary that wants to kill, steal and destroy us. What is the spirit of bondage? Instead of thinking of something bad, think of God. The fear during Moses time to obey the rules kept many separated from God. Gal 3:24 But the New Testament brought Jesus that when one is saved the rules are written upon our hearts. The spirit of bondage is our earthly being but the Spirit of adoption is salvation, being born again. John 8:36, 1 John 4:18 Some will say that they are not scared of anything but those fears are earthly usually. If one is born again, transfer or give God that fear because we are not born into fear being saved. The sprint of the law is about fear but the Sprint of adoption is about grace. Romans 8:9 Until your truly born again you will question and doubt your salvation because the Spirit of God has not move in to your soul. Ephesians 1:13-14 Adoptions are not official until the judge signs the paperwork. Once they are signed that child is the adopted parents forever just like they were the birth parents. Just like earthly adoptions, being saved is just the same. Jesus comes to us to adopt us, once we accept Him, God signs the paperwork forever sealing our adoption forever more.|

|Romans 5:12-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|People do not like to be told that they are sinners. You're not a sinner because you sin, you sin because you are a sinner. Our culture is told to tolerate sin however God does not tolerate sin, He hates it. If there is not guilt for sin in your life then you must ask if you've been born again. Religion will not purge your sin. Being a "good person" is also not a way to forgive sin. When the law of God speaks to us when we sin, we have no excuse. But many do not see sin. Romans 3:23, Gal 3:22, 1 John 1:8, we have all sinned and are therefore sinners. If it violates the Word of God then it makes it sin. There will not be any sin in Heaven, so how does a sinner get there? You must first have God speak to you to reveal to you that you are a sinner. Baptizing, sprinkling or dedicating someone when they are born will not remove their sins. One can't make God NOT love them. The penalty for sin is death, Romans 6:23. There must be a sacrifice of blood to cover sin, this was done at Calvary by Jesus Christ. The flesh is mortal and it dies daily and it is also sinful. Once you accept Jesus by asking for forgiveness for your sins He will come into you inward soul and remove the sin. If someone asks you, "Would you like to be saved?" You would certainly answer yes. Repeating a prayer from a person will not save you because it comes from a person and if God did not invite you, then you can't be saved. Did you know that the satan's demons and even satan himself believe there is a God? The only way to go to hell is to NOT believe in Jesus Christ. Not in the mind but in the heart. As believers we can get into a state where we stop repenting. This is were the flesh that remains sinful is not cleaned from sin. It must be cleaned and washed clean so that it doesn't mar the inward soul.|

|Running Jesus Through the Mud|
|Romans 6:23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We can lose our testimony very quickly if sin is allowed to enter in. A hypocrite is when you've thrown your testimony away. If one continues to sin knowing all along that your singing, God will address it. Just because you're saved doesn't mean you're e free to sin and do whatever you want to do. How far are you willing to play with sin? The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is to live for ever with God the Father. Just as a misbehaving child, the parents will only allow them to misbehave for so long. When you're saved and choose to sin without repentance, God will call you home.|

|Class is in Session|
|2 Peter 3:5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We should be students of the Word. One of the things we excuse ourselves from is class. Some people do not like learning, but learning is the essence of growing. In order one to have an understanding, they must be taught. Nature is a teacher, 1 Corinthians 11:14. We are teachers to one another, Colossians 3:13. The Bible teaches us, Galatians 3:24, Romans 15:4. Do you think that Google is the answer? The Holy Spirit is a teacher, John 14:26. The Grace of God is a teacher, Titus 2:11-12. God is a teacher, Psalm 119:33-34.|
