|Enemies Of The Cross; Advancing|
|Philippians 3:12-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We live in a world that hates Christ. This is not anything new as this has been going on sin Adam and Eve. The question is, are you in the battle for Christ, are you prepared? One may say to themselves and possibly others that they would never be an enemy to Christ. However, if you’re not for Him then you’re against Him. So check yourself, look at your checkbook. Usually what you spend the most on is what you love the most. If you’ve been born again then you should be willing to say, here I am Lord, send me. But, usually we say, I can’t do that cause I’m not qualified. We have the greatest opportunity to advance for Christ. What are are your eyes on? If something is advancing then something is being followed. Are you moving forward with Christ? Just because your name is on the church books means nothing if you’re not working for Christ and one of His. Your past will hold you back if you let it. Repent of your past and move forward. We should cut the bind that hold us back. When you’re chasing after something you usually don’t reach your arms out until you’re about to capture it. Usually when you’re in a race your greatest burst of energy is once you see the prize, the end. What are you doing for God? Church attendance is not the problem. The problem comes from within you. Once you fall in love with Christ then you’ll realize you can’t live without Him. All of those problems like attendance or simply sitting on the bench will get corrected. So which way are you going? Confused about which way to go, do you need direction? Begin with your Bible, it’s the light and the path and will not lead you astray. If you’re born again and another brethren is also born again then your paths are clear and in it for the same reason. Keep moving forward, keep advancing.|

|Bloom Where You're Planted|
|2 Kings 5:1-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of times people live in disappointment because they live a life of unbiblical nature. How many are truly faithful to God in the really tough times? Everything around you will change but God never changes. There is no reason to why we should be depressed all of the time, it's unbiblical. How many times to we put on the bullseye and just ask for the bad stuff to just hit us? We should choose to believe God no matter the circumstances. We should rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS. If you're walking around and state that you're suffering for Christ, then you're living a lie. We as a Christian have a responsibility to bring hope to the lost. The maid was a slave that was taken away from her family but she decided to bloom where she was planted. She had no control over her circumstances. You must decide if you're gonna be a victim or a victor. Greater is He that is in me than that who is in the world. You know you can't uncrack an egg or put the water back under the bridge. Did you know that NOT believing God is a sin? You realize that when one makes a statement of belief that, that in itself will cause one to welcome conflict. Do you pick and choose where you make your belief known? Folks are desperate for hope in this day in time. At what point in your life did attending church become hard?|

|The Crown That We Will Receive|
|2 Timothy 4:6-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Most of the time we try prep for what's coming. We often go to the grocery store to purchase groceries because we must prep for an upcoming meal. In our human bodies we all know that there is an end coming, death. We must prepare for that day just as we prepared for the upcoming meal. The difference is that we don't know when death will come. There is a work for us all to do, whether they be good or bad is to be judged at our death. In our humanly body we most all of us have worked a job. If we had worked two weeks and not received a paycheck, we would probably be slightly upset. Just the same, if the employer paid you in advance and you never did the work. So where do you place yourself in your commitment level when it comes to doing Gods work? There's a reason that we work for Christ. You must examine yourselves and make sure that you've fought a good fight the best that you could. One can't work themselves into Heaven, only by grace alone will one be allowed into Heaven. 2 Timothy 4:8; crown of righteousness James 1:12; crown of life 1 Peter 5:4; crown of glory Rev 4:4; crowns of gold Is it right to reward a person that does nothing versus a person that does it all? Rev 4:8-10 These crowns were given back to Jesus, cast at His feet by those that earned the crowns. Something that we could give back only because He is worthy and not us. Just imagine being there and not having anything to give back.|

|Psalm 46:1-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Even when you're really still you're often times still busy within. Most everyone lives by some sort of timeline. Be still. Let go and let God. We must stop with the television, cell phone, etc. These things take up our times with God. A sacrifice is often made because we don't want to give up those things. A lot of our instruction requires us to be still. Check your "to do lists" and make sure that God is on it. At the top of the list should be, be still for God. One can't say that they don't have time to be still with God. There has always been 24 hours in the day. The problem is that stuff takes up that time and we are unwilling to remove the stuff and replace it with God. Make an effort to make time for God. Our schedules should have God in them and if they don't then what does that say? It will fall apart if I'm not involved. This is false, God is in full control and without Him it would fall apart. We are replaceable. Look in a graveyard and you'll see it full replaced people. The things they once did someone else has picked it up and are continuing it. Are we not like a person that's afraid of a bee? The devil comes around and we begin flailing around trying to stop him. All the while WE have no control over the devil by ourselves. God is the only one that can rid of of the devil and his pestering actions. We must put God first, be still. We must all graduate from kindergarten when it comes to our spiritual lives. Get off the milk and start consuming solid foods. Prayer along is alright but you need more Jesus to truly live. We must know Him, intimately, personally because He wants to hold us. God is asking us to stop and be still for just a moment so He can be close to us. Once you get to that place, hope grows as well as our faith.|

|Acts 9:1-19 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Ananias was called to do a certain duty. Ananias was a certain disciple just like all of us that are called of God as being saved. Ananias' job was to simply obey.
One thing that Ananias had was that he was present in the time of need. Just as he, the saved should also be present. How many of the born again believers are absent from the work of God? We as the saved have a responsibility to be ready and willing to do what God calls you to do. If you're a child of God then you're able to do whatever God calls you to do. We should all as children of God be praying at all times.
Most all children of God are prone to great fear which is why we try to reason with Gods calling. Ananias had that same fear when he was called to visit Saul. Regardless of what God tells us to do, we should always be obedient. Faith grows when we obey God. One can talk about their faith all day but without works or proof it is dead.
From the front to the back door all we have to be as a Christian is willing to do what God tells us to do. Praying to God, listening to God, obeying God then doing what He says. Be honest with yourself, how would you rate yourself with the work of God?
