|Righteousness (Part 1)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you ask anybody if they would go to Heaven, most would say yes that they would. Most are not even saved but think they're good enough to get into Heaven. The prayer should be for those that are lost to be saved. In order for soul to be saved it must know that it's lost. We live in a culture that think they are moral and good and do not think they need God. Prov 30:12 does this not sound like we are living in this generation? Visiting an altar does not make one saved. Church attendance will not make one saved.
It's very important that you look at yourself in the mirror and make sure that your sins are taken care of with God. Self is usually at the heart of the sin. Those that go around establishing how righteous they are, are like white sepulchers. The outsides look and seem beautiful but on the inside they are full of death, rotting flesh and bones. Self righteousness is for what? What does it gain you to be self righteous? We are born into a self righteous body that we all struggle with. If you don't think there is a problem then that's one of your problems. Simply looking at church attendance and comparing the numbers for each service will quickly explain a self righteous attitude they people do not need to worship or repent. 2 Cor 10:12 comparing us to the dung, waste of cattle - farmers look at the waste in order to make sure they are healthy and eating correctly. In the end, it's still dung, waste. One pile of dung is just the same as another pile of dung just the same as one person is just a human the same as the next.

|The Wiles of the Devil|
|Ephesians 6:10-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Satan is a created being and is no different than the angels in heaven. Satan has many tactics that he uses on the children of God on a daily basis. The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy. The thief is the devil and the wicked spirits that serve him. Their are enough to spread across the world. The devil does not have free rein of a christian because we are protected by the shield of God. John 10:10, 2 Cor 2:11, Eph 6:16, 1 Peter 5:8 We truly have an enemy and we can not stand in the flesh to fight him. It takes something greater than the flesh to fight him because he is in the sprint therefore must be fought in the spirit. He is not omnipresent but has many demons that do his handy-work. This world currently is the devils domain until Jesus comes back. The very thing that we live in, the flesh, wants to live in the world because of it’s lust. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve because he is still deceiving and lying to people everyday. What a terrifying thing to be able to see with our eyes the spiritual warfare that goes on all around us. If we are saved then we are protected by Gods great hand and satan can not get to us unless God allows it. When Jesus died, He died for ALL but many will not submit to Him. If you’re playing with the devil he will take you further than you ever thought you would go quicker than you ever thought. When you light a match and place that flame under your hand, you will pull your hand back because there is a nerve that warns you of danger. Just as that nerve warns you, God also warns you of the dangers of the devil. Satan wants to destroy your testimony if you’re saved. Satan will use anything he can to tear you down. He will use religion itself to bring you down. If you are saved then you’re going to heaven but that doesn’t mean that if you play with the devil that he will keep people around you lost and going into hell. We hear it everyday, pastors having affairs because satan laid a woman in their lives. We as humans are ignorant to satan’s lies and deceptions.|

|Promise of Adoption|
|Romans 4:13-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We as Christians should have the faith as Abraham. Without faith one will walk thru life as that of a drunk person stumbling about. Some still think that one only has to be baptized in order to go to heaven but that's not true. There is only one way to heaven and it's not thru your family, works, baptism or church membership. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven and to forgive one of their sins. It would seem that God would only want to save those that are "sinless", those that haven't done horrible things. But God loves everyone no matter their sins, in fact, God loves to take the worst sinner around and convert them to do His work.|

|Isaiah 64:6-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There are times in our Christian walk where we think we've got it all figured out but, our righteousness is of filthy rags. Once we think we've got it figured out, that is when we are about to fall. So at the best that we could do, our works are as filthy rags compared to Gods glory. We all fall short daily and must repent before God. When you get into a hopeless condition with sin, just call on Jesus. Being in sin is truly a hopeless condition. If your saved you can not walk in sin. You might be able to walk in it for awhile but God will not dwell with sin therefore you will walk further and further from Him. A good potter will start out with a lump of unformed clay beginning to work it until it's something that both the potter and others would be proud of. If we were the potter we would just get rid of the lump of clay instead of making it better. At the root of being prepared and ready for church is getting the imperfections out, the sins that are in our lives.|

|Who is Wise in God?|
|James 3:13-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We should be careful that it's not about pride. In order to be taught, you must be teachable. You must forget about what people have said and get back to the Word of God. The Word of God is what will judge and teach, not what our forefathers set forth or said. A lot of people excuse themselves by not opening the bible. We should study to prove ourselves. If you asked someone a legitimate question they will try to give you an honest answer. Sometimes it's days if not weeks before we will pick up our bibles. Just because you read it doesn't mean that you've studied it. The bible isn't a dead word so it never gets old, it's a living word. One can't retire from God. It thrills God to get you smart in the Word. Sunday school is a must because we study the scripture. You need Jesus Christ as a tutor in your life daily. You can identify a wise man by his words. Conversation of God will make you a wise person. Just like their conversation, their works should back it up. If you can't walk it, don't talk it. If your works don't match your words then your neighbor will see a hypocrite. Where is righteousness found? The bible. Good conversation and good works will usually bring forth pride. Pride comes before a fall. Your good words from God and your good works from God will bring forth wisdom as long as you keep it in your heart and not your mind. A wise person is full of love and what is love? Jesus. If you're holding envy and strife in your heart then you are of the world and not of God. A Godly wisdom is pure, peaceable, gentle, easy to be persuaded by Gods Word, full of mercy and good works, without suspicion and is without hypocrisy. James 1:5 If you want wisdom, ask God for it without doubt and it will be given.|
