|Are You A Neighbor?|
|Luke 10:25-37 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of times we try to justify ourselves instead of trusting that God knows best. God knows everything about so He knows when we are trying to get out of doing something we aught not do. You'll never be right with God if you're not right with someone else. So who is your neighbor? Your neighbor is anyone that you come into contact with. We can't mark people off or right them off because they look, act or smell a certain. Are you a neighbor? Are you in the position to where you allow things to blind you from loving someone? Are you loving others as you love yourself? Are you actively involved with others showing them that Christ died for them just as He died for you? We have NEVER merited Gods love for us. We have no right to Christ. Christ bled and died for everyone and not just a select few. How far are you willing to go? Most have a certain amount of compassion but it's limited. Once that limit is met then the compassion ends and goes no further. You realize that Christ was the neighbor that noticed you in the ditch, cut up, bruised and bullied by the world and yet He got in the ditch with you and rescued you! He came to where you were and lifted you up! Every unbeliever is on their way to death faster and faster with each breath they take. But Christ is reaching down to the lost and asking to just take a His hand. He will pull them out of the ditch they are in and set them on a full of life path. Mat 7:12|

|Will You Believe In Jesus Christ|
|John 6:53-59 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Jesus was God in the flesh. Many don't want to accept the fact that Jesus is God in the flesh. They view Him as just a simple man. Jesus Christ is part of the third part of the Godhead. Unless you accept Jesus Christ as whom He is, you may have NO part of Him. All one has to do is just believe. The communion service is just a representation of the broken flesh and bitter blood of Jesus Christ. When one partakes of the bread and wine they are saying that they accept Christ as being the Son of God. The only restrictions that we as our church has on the communion is that one must be born again to partake of it. Jesus was born of a virgin, He walked sinless on earth and He was sacrificed for our sins. There has been NO other person that's done that. It's simple, one must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He is the only way to Salvation.|

|Hebrews 13:10 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
|Some will say that the Old Testament has no place in today's world however, it teaches us what was to come from within the New Testaments. A tabernacle, covenant and a priest was needed in the Old Testament for the Jews. Exodus 25:8 was the start of the tabernacle. Heb 9:1-5 Heb 9:6-8 explains that this way was temporary meaning Christ would come to change it and make a better way. Having a sacrifice for a sin was a horrible thing. Perfect, innocent sheep and other animals having their necks sliced and their blood drawn for the sins of the Jews. Christ would soon come as a sacrifice one time and forever more.
The Priest Lev 16:2-4 The only one that could come into the Holy of Holies was one appointed person which was the High Priest. The high priest, Aaron was to use the sacrifice first and offer it up because he himself was not perfect. Then he had to go out and back and use the two goats, a scapegoat and an offering goat and sacrifice one of the goats. The blood was then offered up for the people's sins. The priest had to be clean, not only from sin but his flesh also. We have lost over time the word of God because of the easiness of grace. The Jew knew that they had to prepare themselves for God, we usually do not. Heb 5:1-3 The priest was chosen from among men. Christ was taken among men (born as a human). Heb 5:4-10 Jesus was born as a man to suffer as a man but remained sinless. Heb 4:14-16 Jesus Christ is our now high priest, forever more. Underneath the grace was a way paved in blood all the while saying there is but only ONE way to God.

|Submit Yourself to God|
|James 4:7-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It's hard to see submission without brokenness. Some want to be used but only partially. The requirement of being used is all or nothing. We should be ready at all times to be a willing vessel for a God. Submitting yourself to God requires a change. How many things hinder and hold you back from submitting yourself 100% to God? We want God to do these things for us but are unwilling to do what He's told us on submission. God should rule everything in your life. Unwilling, afraid, think you can't do... it's all because the doubt is stronger in your life that God is. You have not because you ask not. Obedience is better than sacrifice.|

|There's Life In the Water|
|1 Kings 18:35-39 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We need to get on fire for God. Mediocrity is death. We need to let go of our indifference and let God. Life is in the water. Elijah was bringing life back to the altar. There's nothing God did t take that He won't restore. When we sacrifice what separates us from God on the altar, life is given in return. There's life at the altar. God switches our sacrifice and surrender for restoration and life. There's no life anywhere but in God. God is the source of water and wastes nothing. He is the resource. The altar is where faith is proven. It's the place where things are real. There's water all over the altar. Everything you love most is in the altar and in all these things there is life. The most important thing you could have in you altar , it's what the drought stricken world doesn't have and you can have all the water you need everyday. Why won't you go to the altar? Because the hard part is the preparation for prayer. The willingness to surrender. We aren't waiting on God; He's waiting on us. You'll never be able to go to the altar of God and not leave unchanged. But we have to bring our best. We cannot have sin and expect God to accept our sacrifice.|
