|No Excuses, Pastors, Peace, Warn & Comfort|
|1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|We should be living and growing towards God. Here you will see a series of things that need to be done. There are many religions or cults that are based on works and works only. The truth is that works without being saved is nothing, empty.
No Excuses: Eph 4:1 Christians are not excused for Gods work. Every Christian has been called by God to do His duties. The flesh wants to only do what pleases it and it is lazy and wants to not do anything. 2 Tim 1:12-13 we should hold fast the Word of God, truth.
Pastors: 1 Thes 5:12-13 Christians should understand fully the work of the pastor. We should love them and lift them up before God. It's not the person but the function that should be cherished and loved. Man didn't setup the church, God did and ordained it as His.
Peace: We should also be at peace with each other and not bicker amongst ourselves. Rom 12:18 if two people are saved then peace should be between the two. Rom 14:19 we should follow after things that are peaceful with others. There is no place within the body of Christ for grudges. Psa 133:1 it's always good for unity between the Christian.
Warn: 1 Thes 5:14 we as Christians should warn the unruly or unholy. This means that in love we should approach a fellow Christian and warn them that what they are on the wrong path. We should care enough for the brethren to warn them.
Comfort: 1 Thes 5:14 if one lives long enough the less your mind remembers. We should comfort those that can not care for themselves. Gal 6:2 The body of Christ should care for those that can't do for themselves. Supporting the weak or broken. We sacrifice to give to others that give themselves.

|Are You Waiting For An Answer?|
|James 1:5-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God never said not to ask Him for anything. There are times when we don't understand things. God is not gonna say to you, that's a dumb question. God doesn't expect us to walk through life blinded. Go before God humbled and He will answer. They're times when we wont like the answer that's given. It's ok to question God but you better do it with honor and respect.|

|Peace, Be Still|
|Mark 4:35-41 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|In our lives we will all have storms. We will run around crazy trying to figure out what to do when they come all along forgetting about the one that has full control over the storms. We also want to question God and ask why it's taking God so long to help you. We would all be a lot better off if we just asked God and have patience that God has all the control and it will be alright. A lot of us simply need to trust in God. We forget that He lives inside us if we are saved. So many struggle with things because we try to fix it ourselves.|

|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.|

|1 Timothy 6:11-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There isn't a time where we should lay it down and give up. We've been reminded in the past week as the devil has attacked our marriages, homes and our country. If there is a time when we should stand, it would be now. The older one gets, the more they are equipped. How are we to be equipped? If you've been saved, you've been called and equipped to to fight in Gods battle against the devil 2 Tim 2:3-4 When one enters into the Army, they go through boot camp. You'll be taught how to go into battle, never to lay down your weapon, never give up, never turn your back on the enemy. Jesus endured the ultimate battle. How many times do we allow the enemy to trip us up because we laid down? The saved has a small amount of time to do Gods work. We must be engaged in the battle for God 24/7. We, the saved, are the soldiers for God. 1 Peter 5:8 If we are the soldiers, who are the enemies? The devil is a toothless cat that can only roar and can not touch Gods soldiers. The devil only attacks from behind because he is a coward to God and His children. 1 Peter 5:9 We should be steadfast in our faith and resist the devil. The church of the US is spoilt brats because we haven't been persecuted like those in third world countries. Those in other countries must hide in order to read their bibles or face death. Eph 6:12 A lot of times we complain about things that doesn't matter which wastes valuable time. God isn't worried, so why are we? The enemy isn't your neighbor or the lost, it's the devil, a spiritual battle. Wars and battles are being fought spiritually all around us. So that man that bad mouths God, those neighbors that mock you are not the enemy. Stop trying to fight and win those battles that are in the flesh. So who is the captain? Joshua 5:14-15 Nothing and nobody can be worshipped and it be right unless it is God. Heb 2:10 If you're not serving God then you've missed it. Rev 19:11-16 God Himself is coming back and He will fight the last battle Himself. The fight we must fight is the spiritual battle. God has called us to be equipped with the Armor of God and help fight. So who are you serving? How should we fight? Mat 5:44 Love. Luke 6:27-36|
