|Who Is Rich?|
|Mark 10:17-31 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Every adult is rich. 70% of the adult population has less than $10,000. The problem is that we like to compare what others have to ours and see that others or richer than you therefore defining your own definition of what rich means.
The reason that Jesus came was because we couldn't keep the commandments. Think about your own life, heat and cool at the touch of a button. Hot water by the turn of a switch. So these things that you "own" surely since you own them you can keep them forever. At the time of your death, what will you take with you? All the belongings in your life will be left behind and nothing will be taken with you when you die.
Going to a third world country we see and compare what they have versus us. The comparison is not fair because it's based upon our current lifestyle. If one would stop and ask them if they are poor they would surely say they are not.
Billionaires wish they were happier at times but they seemingly have everything they could ever want. What does it profit a man to have everything but die with with a lost soul. Here on this earth you could have all the riches in the world but die lost and have nothing. A saved person can live on this earth with nothing to their name and die and be the richest person for eternity.
In today's time it's difficult to call to the sinner because they think they have everything they need. Can a rich person be saved? Yes, but they must put their riches away, they can't put their trust in them. A man can't worship two gods. People that trust in riches have no need for a savior because they put their trust in their riches. If you've got anything in this life, rejoice over it. Each time you can turn the water on, rejoice! With every egg you eat, rejoice! With each minute you work, rejoice!
You came into the world naked and empty handed, you will also leave this world naked and empty handed no matter what you own or know. How rich are you? If you don't have Christ, salvation, then you are as poor as poor can be.

|Be Like Gideon|
|1 Corinthians 1:18-31 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|People thought that thru their own wisdom they would rid themselves of Christ by crucifying Him. However, thru their foolishness they fulfilled the plan of salvation for all mankind. Romans 1:19 Everyone knows that there is a God. Our own timeframe is created upon a before Christ and after Christ. Due to the sacrifice of Christ every person has the opportunity to be saved. It's foolishness to many that one person years ago could die to save the future. Romans 1:26-32 It's not Gods will for anyone to perish but many will turn against God and will turn to themselves seeking after their own lusts. We commonly think that we are the only ones that are going thru something, no one understands what our battle feels like. But Christ himself was rejected and is still rejected today. We seek after things in this world that please us, love, drugs, alcohol, stuff, money. In the end these things will all be destroyed.|

|Never Give Up|
|2 Corinthians 4:6-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Religion will not change you, it will corrupt you. You must be born again to experience His love. Going through the motions is simply going through the motions. There is no other way to heaven than to be born again. When God saves you, He doesn't save the outward being, the flesh. You may be the most beautiful looking person in the world but the flesh will go back to the dust of the earth when you die. The closer you get to God, the less you'll worry about the flesh. How many hours to we waste feeding the flesh that has nothing to do with God? We are troubled on every side because we live in the flesh. So how do we live without stress? We must turn to the inward, God.|

|Are You Really a Child of God? (Part 2)|
|Galatians 4:7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There's a big difference between thinking and knowing. When you don't know for sure, there is a constant doubt and fear. If you are a child of God, you are no longer a servant but a son. A servant doesn't have an inheritance. We are the children of God and we will receive an inheritance. There are a lot of folks that will say and work all the time that they are saved. There is only one way to be born again and that's through Jesus Christ. Those in Christ have been promised a joy that no one can imagine. We did not deserve it. There are many that do not want the title, child of the King. Some want it but do not want to walk it. Roman 8:16 The Spirit will bear witness with yours if you have been saved. If you've been saved, live like it with your head held high knowing the promises that God has given to us. Does the Spirit bear witness with yours? Those that think they are saved and those that are impostors will not get Gods inheritance. If your saved then you are an heir to God but not only that but, a joint heir to Jesus Christ. So what do we that are saved get as an inheritance? 1 Peter 1:3-5 A lively hope. Since Jesus came, died, and was resurrected, that makes our hope alive and not dead. The inheritance can not be corrupted and it can't be defiled. It will never fade away, it will last forever. It is reserved, just for you, waiting on you in heaven. Ephesians 1:14, we are just waiting, sealed for God until the day of redemption. Rev 21:4 What we find important here on earth is what we will walk on in heaven. Fine jewels and pearls are used to build things that we destroy with no thought on earth daily. So are you really an heir?|

|2 Corinthians 4:6-9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Those of us that are saved do not sit in darkness. There are things in this world that we will never understand but God has given us promises. When things get dark around us, we just need to look towards God. There is strength in the Lord! The saved have a comforter, The Comforter. Romans 8:28 Everything works towards the good of God. We have hope and at times it's hard to see.|
