|James 2:14-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There's a difference between saying and doing. There are many people that are willing to make the statement that they believe that Jesus is the son of God. On top of that is that there are those that will pat those people on the back and tell them that they are alright with God. Having your name on the church books doesn't give one more faith or make one saved. Some today say it all day long that they believe but nothing to prove it. There is a difference between saying it and doing it. Their are pastors that tell there congregants that all they have to do is simply say it and they'll be saved. "Repeat after me..." We still live in a society that state they're saved but have no true evidence of such. Getting saved is not anything that a preacher does but an operation that is done by Christ Himself. Just because you tell the devil to flee means nothing because it's the Holy Spirit that causes the devils to leave. Not everyone that says Lord, Lord will be in Heaven. Matt 7:22-23, Have we not done wonderful things in your name? Jesus Christ loves you and does not want you to go to Hell. Make sure you're saved! Even the Devils and Satan say they believe in God but as we all now they are ALL destined for Hell. The Holy Spirit MUST reveal unto you that you're lost before you can be saved. You can go thru the motions, say all the right things but if Christ hasn't invited and revealed to you then you're wasting your time and hurting others. James 2:23, Abraham said he believed God. But God tested him and thru his works/faith it was shown that he truly was a "Friend of God". Is you're faith real? Has it stood the test of time? Has it wavered? Is it your faith alone and not someone else's?|

|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.

|Because He Is Worth It|
|Hebrews 13:7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A Christian leader is one that leads by example and by respect. Great Christian leaders that have led by examples is Henry Webb. He lived almost 3.5 miles away from the church and would walk to the church house each and every time the doors were open. He walked thru all kinds of elements because God was worth it to him. A faithful member. The sad truth is that today, most have a problem getting out of bed when it's cold outside even though our vehicles are heated as well as the church. People are watching whether you want them to or not.
Henry Webb's obituary: "Henry Webb was born June 29, 1904, and departed this life Dec. 2, 1989, being 84 years, 5 months, and 3 days of age.
Henry professed faith in Christ and joined the New Providence Primitive Baptist Church on November 9, 1969, and was baptized November 16, 1969.
He was a very faithful member of his church and loved it and the people of the church.
He labored in the building of the New Providence Church both in the first building and in the present building, the church was his life as long as he was able to attend."We should examine ourselves to make sure that what we show to the world is a godly life. God needs leaders in His church. Are you willing to be a leader? Are you able to? You must first be able before you can be a leader.

|Faith of a Child|
|2 Kings 5:1-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|People often limit themselves because they feel as if they are unworthy.
We are all the same as we are all sinners. The difference is that if you've been born again then your a sinner saved by grace yet, still a sinner.
God is the same God that He was yesterday for He still hasn't changed. Once you've been born again there should be a burden to tell everyone what God has done for you. The work and sharing of God can sometimes be physical or by words it can also be by living it day in and out. We should all want to be changed and want to receive a double portion of His love everyday.
Don't we want something for our people? The devil is doing his very best to destroy them all. We all need a double portion, a filling up of Gods love and power to do His will. In most cases children tend to simply believe things that are told to them. Adults grow to harden their hearts and doubt what they hear and see. This makes it more and more difficult to believe a simple message and truth of Jesus to be born again.
The power of God is not in us but in God that dwells in us that are saved. The power of God comes out by obedience. Our faith in God can make a difference because He is limitless. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
