|Faith Like Peter|
|(Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
There's a lot of people today that are a saved and in their way to Heaven but God is wanting you to change. The church has become satisfied with their salvation. God has a plan for each and every person. We all need to be broken by God because He is wanting to put you back together in the way He wants you to be. Just as Peter people come to church and witness from afar and never get close to God. Does the Word of God have authority in your life? You've got to apply the Word of God to your life.
A fountain can not bring forth sweet and bitter water at the same time. If your language is of the world, swearing and cussing then you've allowed the world into your heart. You're teaching the world Jesus is nothing to you. Just as the rudder on a massive ship is small but turn the entire ship, our tongue is small but can destroy your witness for God. The Word of God is quick and powerful! God knows your heart better than you do and He knows just how to convict you of your disgusting sin.
Have you ever done something that you know you shouldn't have done? Have you ever denied your savior? When God chastises us it hurts but it also hurts Him when we sin and when He has to chastise us for He loves us and wants us to do better. Just as a loving parent must chastise their children. Thank God for second chances. God could call you home after one time of a sinful act but He loves us and gives second chances.
How hard is it to go out into your community and invite your neighbors? Do you why some churches are dark and cold? Cause their members are not bringing the light with them.
There will be times that God will allow to come on us to simply change us. Sometimes God will allow you to struggle with it until you get to the point till you can't take it anymore and surrender to Him. Just as a butterfly is formed, there is a process to it. What once was a ugly worm will began to transform into a beautiful colorful butterfly. If you've been saved then you've been transformed by God to a beautiful being of Gods love.
When the going gets tough do you just give up? That's like reaching up and slapping God in the face saying you don't need it. Gods got something for you and it will help you. Don't sit and think that you need to wait for your turn. God wants to change you right now.

|Rules of Gift Giving|
|2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The gift of God is simply, John 3:16. He gave the unspeakable gift. Beginning from the last, everything comes from God. Not one person has anything unless it comes thru God first. We as humans are selfish creatures by nature. God wants to give you His undeserved love. Many holidays come and go and they revolve around giving, however we should be a giver everyday. If you're judging the gift by its size then you've missed the point. One doesn't give because of self, one gives because they are loved. We've been given the greatest gift, love, that it should cause one to give it back.
There should be a time when you've found yourself in want. Bills to pay, missing food on the table or even gas to fuel the car. During that time, God might come to you and ask you to give to someone else. Now money is not something that can be controlled and many of billionaires worry about it till they die.
One point to be a good giver is to give abundantly and not sparingly. Just as sowing seeds, one doesn't plant one seed expecting hundreds of plants.
Point two, give purposely. One should purpose in their heart to love God and to pray for the need or gift. God knows the need and therefore we should obey what He tells us to give.
The third point is to give freely. This doesn't mean to smile while you gift it. Without a grudge or necessity. If it bothers you to give then you're giving wrongly.
If how you give is based on how you feel at the moment then the devil will talk you out if it every time. God tries to teach His lesson on giving by your obedience. When God tells you to give, give without question. No matter how much one gives, one can NEVER out-give Gods giving. We give because if we sow it, we will reap it as long as it's done by the above three points. The second reason is because God loves a cheerful giver. Wouldn't we all want to please God? Now when the offering was being taken, God is always watching. He knows what's in your pocket, He knows what's in your heart and He knows what He told you. It's not about how much is put it but why it was put in. Our church does not tell you how much to give because an amount is not biblical in today's time. The Old Testament explain a tenth but the New Testament explains that it's based on what God tells you to give and what you're willing to give. If you're worried about giving then you're worried about the wrong thing. 2 Cor explains that always God will take care of all needs.

|How To Be Happy|
|Psalm 1:1-6 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What's going on in our world right now? Just a few years ago folks loved to worship God and couldn't wait to worship God and depending on God for everything. The devil has come to steal, kill and destroy. For all of us there is two parts to us, a flesh and a spiritual. Blessed is the man that doesn't walk with the world. Satan doesn't want us to tell anyone about the goodness of God or invite folks or even yourself to church. So how can a man or woman be happy? There is only one thing that can make one happy. Which would you rather have, something that's temporary or something that's eternal?

|Just Do What God Says|
|Genesis 1:1 (Part of the Communion Services series).|
|Man had nothing to do with creation. Man is still trying to figure what makes a lightning bug light up. Only one thing God requires, believe the Word of God. In the day of Noah, everyone but Noah's family perished in the flood because they didn't believe God' Word. If we just did what God told us to do each time we came to church, it would amaze you. Don't let the devil talk you out of doing what God told you to do. Many people are attending churches throughout the nation thinking they are ok when they are lost. One can fool everyone around them but they can never fool God. Obedience is better than sacrifice. The lightning bug was created by God for a reason.|

|So What's Your Plan?|
|John 10:6-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Most say they pray but do they really? Are you praying the right way? When you have that intimate time with God in prayer, is your closet clean? The devil will often tell us that our little prayers are just good enough. But, the truth is, we are not engaged and are not fighting. So what's the big deal on not praying or engaging ourselves in the war? Souls, lost souls are in the balance. The story has been told over and over because people will not listen. The problem is not sin, it's because people refuse to let God work. There is NO other way to heaven but through Jesus Christ, none. The enemy has a plan in place already, do you? We are all guilty of pride and selfishness. We find ourselves that way because we choose to listen to the enemy. A robber is someone that takes things with force that does not belong to them. A thief is someone that take things by manipulation. When something in your life needs prayer you will shut your life down to pray for that need. But when we hear of someone else's prayer we just speak a prayer and we go on with our regular life. There is never a day that goes by that we are not a sinner. It's a privilege to pray corporately but the devil says it's ok to just sit back. The worst thing for a Christian to be is satisfied. Faith doesn't mean anything until it's been worked. Satan can only be in one place at one time, but he has many demons, helpers. Satan himself was thrown out of heaven because he was prideful but we think we can get away with it daily. Have you fully surrendered your life to God? The enemy will tell you that as long as your life, family and health is ok, everything is alright. If you think you don't need to change, then that's one of your biggest problems.|
