|All Is Yours|
|1 Corinthians 3:21-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God has promised us a few things and His promises are true. God has called us out from amongst the world to be a different people. God is not limited by anything. He is the creator of ALL things and therefore controls it ALL! When God saves someone they are saved for eternity because that is one of His promises, He doesn't change His mind.
It matters how you live because others are learning by your walk. We should not worship "men" like pastors, priests or great leaders. Preachers are called of God and all have their own calling of how they teach and bring the word whether they are extraordinary or ordinary. The man of God should at all times preach Gods Word and nothing else and if He wavers should be confronted in love according to His word. God is the same God from the hills of Tennessee to Rome!
Not only is the men of God that preach His word are ours, but the world also. This means anything in this world can be used by Him to make us better and work us to His will. The devil will come to you and offer you the world for your love for him but Satan doesn't have that authority. Satan could offer you the keys to Fort Knox but that would be for your own benefit. God doesn't need the gold or all the cash in this world.
People worry too much about life because it's unknown. If we knew life then we would worry more because of the known end and struggles thru it. When one wakes up and realizes they have to go to work yet again, stop and thank God for being able to do so instead of complaining.
Death is also ours that is of Christ's. This is because He has defeated death and it has no hold on His children. The only thing that will happen at the end of our life is that God will take us by the hand and lead us to His Glory.
The present is also ours if we are Christ's. What do you really need from this world? God has complete control over it all and therefore is ours. This is Gods "Will" that He wrote for us all that are His because we are His children. Just like the present is ours, the future is also ours. We can not fathom what the future holds.
The reason that all of these things are simply answered because we are Christ's and He is Gods.
John 10:28-29 sums it all up in a very simple verse.

|A Voice Above All Other|
|John 10:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God speaks to people in different ways. In Genesis you'll read how God spoke in the dreams of Joseph. Yet in Matthew 1:20-24; 2:13; 2:19; 2:22 we read where another Joseph was talked to in his dreams by God. However still today, God still speaks in many ways. Make sure when you think you hear God speak that it's of God. Gods made of wood, gold or stone will never speak back. Some are confused about Gods speech and expect Him to verbally speak in a loud voice to them. Some confuse His voice with things of this world. In the end, you WILL know when He speaks because His voice bares witness with your soul.
Have you ever thought about your kidneys functioned? How about your lungs when they expanded? Have you ever stopped to be thankful for those simple but very important things?
Not only does God speak to our mind but He also speaks to our hearts. Thru Gods speech to our hearts, conviction of sin is made therefore bringing forth repentance or Salvation. We should at all times pray without ceasing. Prayer is not just a one way speech but a two way conversation.
John 10:1-5 notice how the shepherd calls the sheep and they hear his voice and will only answer to his voice. If you're one of His then you know His voice and you should follow Him always.

|The Love That Compels|
|2 Corinthians 5:11-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It's the love of Christ that has changed those that are Christians. There are many that are not one of His which causes a lot of confusion amongst people however, in the end of time God will separate those from His.
The love of Christ should be what motivates us. People wonder what makes Christians do what they do but it's the love of Christ. There are many that claim their works are for Christ but many of them will be turned away at their death. One thing is that we are to love our neighbors. It makes no difference about what they may have done to you because we are to forgive them. When we try to do things on our own we will run out of fuel at some point because it's us doing it not Christ. The love of Christ will cause one to move across country simply to love on someone.we had nothing to do with Christ's love. He came first to love us first.
One can't love or know what love truly is until they've been born again. A Christian doesn't work for Christ because we want to or out of duty but because He compels us to love. Christ gave ALL He had, He gave His life. He did this because He loved you and yet most still feel He still owes us something else.

|John 3:16-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Could you take a beating like Christ did for your children or someone you love dearly? Could you really? Flesh being torn from your body and never make a sound.
Repeating a prayer from anyone doesn't make one saved. If there is no pull, knock on your hearts door from Jesus then you can't be saved. Jesus must invite one first before you're lost, convicted of sin and then a choice is made to be saved or answer His invitation.
No one is promised another second to live. Your next step might not be made. Your next breath may not come. Are you prepared to meet God? Once you've been saved, you'll not need to be saved again. Just as the woman at the well, Jesus gave her salvation therefore she would never thirst again.
We as parents should be teaching in a godly way always pointing them back up to God. God will never leave them and God will always be there when we can't. We will always fail no matter how hard we try. Christ is always there and will never forsake His children.
God doesn't prepare a place for you and your spouse, you and your friend. God said He is preparing a place for YOU, singular person, just for you. Therefore the choice is up to you if you want that place. No other person can make that choice for you.

|Do You Love Him?|
|John 21:15-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
Many will acknowledge that they live Christ but the question is do we do them, proving it. Love is both a noun and verb but is usually an action, a verb. Does God not have the right to ask us if we really love Him? Do we not offend Him daily causing a him to question us? Many have made a career of the self calling of a pastor but God does the calling not man. God has every right to question us. Many love the world more than God. Following the worlds fleshly wants and needs. Many care more about what others are going to think than what God knows.
Agapeo is what is being asked in verses 15 and 16 but in 17 it changes to phileo which is meaning dearly.
15 and 16 is a comparison of the others and Peter's love. 17 is a direct question to Peter's love towards Christ not comparing others love. So there was a question of caring in verses 15 and 16 but true love was asked in 17.
What's scary to a hypocrite is the all the while knowing that God knows the truth. If you're trying to prove your love for God in your church service or attendance then you've lost the point. You'll serve God because you can't help it and He is everything.
Jesus gave some mandates on our love towards Him. One was to feed the His sheep, the followers of Christ. Feed would be to bring food and have to be a nurturer.
Doesn't the flesh say we forgive but we doubt trusting them again? Most want to be associated to Jesus Christ only if it pushes their agenda. One can't love until love is first received.
