|A Deadly Sin|
|John 8:1-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of Christians these days want to point out others sins in front of everyone. It's not everyone's business what bad things that are happening in someone's life or in your church. We must be careful how we bring things up to others. These people brought this woman and made a scene with her in front of everyone. She knew she was in the wrong, no one had to say anything to bring that to light. This woman was embarrassed and if she was left alone with nothing happening she probably would have felt mad, angry, and bitter towards the church. If we were still under the law there would be none of us that would be able to keep them. According to the 10 Commandments, if one of those rules were broken then you'd be stoned to death. How many times have you been put to death today for breaking just one of those commandments today? When our brothers and sisters are down or in a sinful nature we should want to help them out of the ditch. The church should be lifting up their pastor because they have downer days as well. We should be pleasing our neighbors. This can be done in different ways not just by works. If you're pleasing God then you'll want to please your neighbor. Thinking about the life of Jesus. Do you think He had the thoughts of doubts? We know He did at one point because He was scared and prayed to make sure He was to do what His father was telling Him to do. Sin is sin no matter how big or small we want to label them.|

|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.|

|1 Thessalonians 5:20 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|In this scripture prophesying means, preaching. Despise: To dislike Have you ever sat under some preaching and thought, well that's not for me? We should never think that we are over the preached word. There is always something in a sermon that is for you. Preaching is important, the Word of God is very important to our souls. When you walk into our building the first thing one sees is the elevated pulpit. All of the pews are facing the front. All of our attention should be upon the front of the church. We should not honor the one bring the word but the word itself. God is not concerned about the vessel but the obedience it has. The story should never get old. Every time you hear about the cross and its suffering it should be like you've never heard it before and break you once again. Some hear the title of the sermon and mark it off as if they've got it figured out already and do not need it. Don't check out prematurely! No matter whom is preaching the message and whether you like them or not, it's not the deliverers that bless but the Word of God. We must ALL be careful of whom is bringing the Word because that person is only a deliverer. Don't think yourself above the preaching. It pleases God thru the foolishness of preaching. The jumping, yelling, crying, screaming, running, etc. Not only to save souls but to keep them and grow them. We don't know how God is going to bless and feed so we must be very careful NOT to despise.|

|You Can't Eat Cheetos® And Lose Weight|
|Jude 1:3 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
You can't hold hands with the devil and run with the Lord.
Satan walks about looking for people that he can take down. We are in a constant battle again the devil. There are places where people would tell the preachers to not preach what God has given to them.
We need to leave an example of how good God is. We need to agonize for the power of God. The church should want to be number 1 and strive for it. We should give it all we've got, be in it to win it!
Heb 12:1, we've got to get rid of sin and stop babying it. You're not gonna wake up one day and the sin just be gone. You're gonna have to deal with it to get rid of it. Have you ever seen anyone run with a bowling ball on their hand? Have you ever seen anyone run hand in hand with another? One can't do it. This is a choice that's all about you. You can't blame your teach, preacher or deacon. It's about a choice that YOU'VE got to make. Now God is not gonna leave you out there all on your own. Luke 22:44, Jesus got a vision from Heaven and it strengthened Him. Jesus isn't gonna ask you to do anything that He Himself hasn't done already.
It's important for the next generation coming up that we contend for the faith.
Jude 1:20, are you not getting anything out of the service, preaching or being feed? You've stopped contending for the faith. Pick up your bible and truly study it. God will lead you if you let Him. Put some time into your prayer.
Jude 1:21, you should keep yourself in the love of God. Keep your eyes on Christ.
Jude 1:22-23, stop pointing your fingers at others and have the love of Christ in yourselves. Have some compassion for others. Put the whole armor of God on and when you see someone struggling in sin or going to Hell, help them. This requires you to do something!
The lack of faith will stop you and the church dead in its tracks. Without God, you can not. Without you, He will not.
Heb 11:4, Abel brought a better sacrifice, his best and what God required. Cain brought junk and this went against what God sat forth. Abel dealt with his sin but Cain didn't want to and wanted to do it on his terms. We must ALL deal with our sin. This is the very first step.
Heb 11:5-6, Enoch walked by faith. We must stop walking with ourselves, the world and start walking with God 24/7. Establish a walk with God each and every day. Diligently search out Gods path.
Heb 11:7, Noah worked by faith because God told him something that sounded crazy to others. It shouldn't matter how crazy it might sound, work and do it for God. Trust that what God tells you is truth!
Heb 11:8-10, some sit under the influence of their old sins. If God has forgiven you of your sins then they are forever gone. Abraham and Sara obeyed.
David Max Simpson. Some of us have great family members of Godly influences. Those that had a heritage had a great spiritual upbringing. The others brings us to David Simpson. He parents were not believers at all but was saved at a tent revival. Both of his parents made fun of him and tried to discourage him about his salvation. He prayed for his parents nightly and then was called to preach. He explain to his parents again about his calling to preach and the same results from his parents was received. This man fought for his faith and never gave up and brought up many preachers generation after generation.
Drop your selfish reigns and let God be God.

|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.
