|It's Up To You|
|Romans 1:18-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|All means all. Each and every person that knows truth and doesn't follow after it will answer for their ungodliness. There is many times the lost seem to have all the fun. They run around acting as if they don't have to answer to anything. The truth of it is their day of judgement is fast approaching for them. Whether you're lost or saved there will be a day that you will recognize that God Himself is real. Do you realize that each and every person has the right to choose whether they will believe or not? Titus 2:11, each and every person knows that if they die where they will go, Heaven or Hell.
The invisible things are clearly seen though they are not is the eternal power of the Godhead. You know they are real. Look around and you can clearly see that God is real because He is the creator. All of His creation has been here since the beginning. The sun stands still while the earth rotates once a day. The earth is also the perfect distance away from the sun. The earth circles the sun once and creates a year. The scientists claim that all of that was simply a mistake and just happened by chance. While looking at Gods creation one will not see His characteristics. His characteristics comes thru knowing Him personally.
When we look at nature the evidence, it's all the same the question is how did it get there. In our schools the children are taught that all of these came to be due to evolution. They've stripped God out and created an imaginary creation claiming to be wise fools.
People will begin putting more faith into their created foolishness and God will allow them to follow their desires. Once again proving that God allows each and every person a choice. God loves each and every person and has never gave up on you. Don't give up on God.
Romans 1:26-31, if one wants to follow their own selfish desires and disobey God, He will allow you to do that. But, Romans 1:32 states that you know what is right and you made the choice not to do it and therefore have cast judgement upon yourself.

|Stay Away From Evil Things|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|People don't want to hear this saying anymore. People want to live the way they want to, however they want and whenever they want. Once you're born again you are no longer yourself but holy. How many of you have damaged your testimony because you've messed with something that you know you shouldn't had? Did you know that people are watching you whether you want them to or not? To some people the only "bible" they know is thru your life. Staying away from evil cramps people's style.
Let's just be honest for just a minute, look in the mirror and you should see a person that has problems with staying away from evil. One of the hardest things to do is to control the tongue. The scripture doesn't just apply to the preachers or deacons. It was addressed to ALL Christians.
It's very difficult to get a persons confidence back after it's been lost. You're the one that the lost is watching and taking note on your actions. Christians have been pulled out of the world and therefore shouldn't be IN the world. The lost are constantly looking for hypocrites.
One must prove it first to make sure it's of a Godly nature. Do the "smell test". Stop and take the time to evaluate prior to doing them. There is no grey area when it comes to right or wrong. The grey area is created by us that wants to feel good about doing something wrong, therefore it would classified as wrong. The power of the church is based upon the faithfulness or life of its members. Phil 4:8, there are things that should be done in front of the lost.
One can't unscramble the eggs or put the toothpaste back into the tube. What do you do if you've messed things up with your testimony/life? Change, there is an expectation that each time you attend church there should be a change. When we change the lost will see it and want to know what's the difference. We should apologize to them for acting out wrong.

|1 Thessalonians 5:21 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|No matter who is doing the teaching or preaching we should always know if it's the truth or not. There are many that for many years claim to be Christian but don't even know what the bible says. How can you check what is being taught if you don't know what the truth is? The only source of truth is the Word of God. 1 John 4:1, there are a lot of wolves in sheep clothing. We should not be live every spirit because not all spirits are good. A preacher should always be reading and have the bible with them at all times. Opinions are not truth but of personal thoughts. Preachers can lead you wrong. They can be teaching you something that they don't fully know themselves. It's not that all would intentionally mislead or misguide but simply not know and teach on assumptions. If you don't go to Sunday School then you need to start. The key word there is school. Our church is in session for about an hour learning more about Gods Word every Sunday. We should prove the preaching and to prove all things. We should know the difference between good and evil. Do you believe there is a devil? A car mass does one thing and one thing only, it points to true north. Just as the compass, the scripture points to the truth. We are pretty smart at most times and we know when we are in the middle of something that's not right. How do they know what is a counterfeit bill, they study the real. Not only should we prove what is good but we are to hold to those truths. It's a continuous process of sowing and reaping good things. The preacher can't plant the good stuff for you. He plants his own and you plant your own. In order to hold fast to the good it takes discipline. A lot of people don't like discipline because it's usually painful. Heb 10:23, you've got to make a choice and commit. Psa 119:33-34, once you've proven all things to the good then you should stick to the good, Phil 4:8.|

|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.

|Teach a Child in the Way it Should Go|
|1 Samuel 3:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Giving the best to your children, Jesus. Teach them that in the time of their struggles to rely on God. We as parents have a major responsibility to bring up our children in a Godly way. Police your children and what they encounter whether it be the television, radio, schools or other homes. We as adults will be gone and our children will take over at that point. Your children need to see and hear us as parents pray and trust God. Prayer has been removed schools and the government. Just because you're a Christian doesn't mean that your child will also be a Christian. What keeps one out of hell is not someone else's salvation but theirs only.|
