|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.

|This Then Is The Message (Part 2)|
|1 John 1:5-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is only one truth and if you miss it then your eternity will be spent in hell. If you've been born again than you can't be consumed by the darkness of the world. Three mistakes are usually made. The first is the lie of walking in the light but are lost and in darkness. If darkness rules in your life then you need to examine your life. Where and what is your greatest desire? If you've been born again and sin, then there is a pain that begins until we are forgiven for that sin. Mistake number two is saying we have no sin in our lives. Everyone is a sinner, we all sin whether we are lost or saved. The bible clearly states that we are all sinners and come short of the glory of God. The third mistake is if we say we haven't sinned then we make God a liar therefor the Word is not in us. It's often painful to ask for forgiveness but, if we confess our sins then God will forgive us.|

|Spectators of the Work|
|Luke 10:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Whatever hinders you from doing what the Word of God says, you need to deal with. The hardest IS great! How many days go by without you saying anything to a lost person about your salvation. Isa 5:18 Hell is growing larger and larger each day. God plainly says to go out into the world and compel them to come to church. Once you're born again or saved you're job has just begun NOT that you should just sit back and do nothing. You as the saved are the only gospel some may ever see or know. The great falling away is NOT an excuse that you can ever give to God for your lack of care for the lost. Many once they leave the church house, preacher or the church members they begin to act, dress and talk like the world. A saved person should be a different people called out amongst the lost. Do you realize that your brain could simply stop functioning and any given moment? Your heart could stop and the flip of a switch. God controls your life and we should act like it. You've got the answer to the lost persons need for salvation if you're born again. The sad news is that not everyone will be saved because they will reject Gods only son, Jesus Christ. This is fact and truth from the Word of God and can not be changed but, this doesn't give a saved person the excuse to not share Jesus with them. If you've got a big work to do then you should have a lot of people to do it or it will never get done. The preacher can not reach every lost person, that's why we as the saved must go out and compel them to be born again. So what do you do if you don't have enough workers, you go out and get more. When the harvest is ready, then you must get it in, work it. There are a lot of spectators that want to see the work of God but unwilling to surrender to God and do His work. Jesus went far and beyond for your life, why can't you go that far for Him? What do you have to lose? The Lord of the harvest is God and we should be praying to Him for more workers, help. We are not to pray harder for the lost, we need more help. The church doesn't need more bodies in the building, they need more workers. If a company had 100 employees that just sat and did nothing, the company would fail. But if a company had 100 employees that all worked, the company would grow and flourish. God has called everyone that's saved for a work and we should ALL be doing it. What's your purpose of being saved? The preacher has just as much responsibility as the lay member. Gal 4:8, Luke 4:14 God already wants to save the lost, John 3:16, so we can stop asking Him to do what He already wants to do. The problem is that God needs workers and we are unwilling to work and just want God to do what we want. The story of the little red hen. We have a reward coming for the work that God has called us to do, but we have to do it to receive it. If something in your life keeps you from doing the will of God, remove it, cut it out of your life. Everyone wants to see God, go to heaven, want the reward...|

|The Hard Journey Home|
|Ruth 1:19-22 (Part of the Ruth 1 series).|
|Sometimes it's hard to go home. The flesh sometimes doesn't want to go back because of shame and hurt. The journey back home can't start until you turn back. The chastening of God is not pleasant but it's needed because He loves us. If you're saved and living outside of the will of God then you are living a dangerous lifestyle. God will not allow His children, the saved to live outside of His will for very long. Those that are living outside of the will of God should be viewed by the church (saved) as those that need love with compassion. Sin WILL take your life. We've all at some point thought we could do it on our own without Gods help. When the children of God are in trouble we should not punish them because it's Gods job to do so. The hard part of having to go back home is the repenting, apologizing for turning your back on God. Being broken is the first step in turning back to God. Repentance to God is the second fruits of going back home. Confession to those they have wronged would be the third step. One can't be fixed until they realize they are broken. Are you not tired of the bad stuff? You can't live in sin and expect God to bless you with the good stuff.|
