|Who Is God In Your Life?|
|Isaiah 45:5-7 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|You need to ask yourself why you attend church. Some will say it's because you want to worship God. Do you realize who God really is though? Isa 45:7, we fail a lot of times of knowing just who God is. Who is He in your life? There is a false doctrine that's commonly called the "little god doctrine" which puts God on the same level as us as humans. They believe they can live an upright sinless life and as long as they live that way they can do anything God can do. The bible teaches us that there is no one that's sinless but Jesus Christ Himself. We ALL fall short of the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ was NOT just a man, He was God incarnate. This means that Jesus was sinless and there is none that will ever be like Him. God is all knowing, nothing takes God by surprise. God does not operate on a knee jerk reaction. God knows if you're going to fall away from Him before it ever happens. If you'll stop and think about who God really is then your worship would change. You're view would change from the troubles in your life to the one who truly controls everything in your life. God is not your crutch, He is not your copilot.|

|Born To Die|
|Luke 2:21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The reason why Jesus came down from Heaven is because of someone like you. You, a person that lives in sin and on a sinful world. Why would Jesus do this? He did all these things for us but we don't come to church but once a week. The Lord can be with you at home but He told us to be with the members of your church, fail not to assemble themselves. Sunday morning the church will be almost full but come that night it'll be half empty. They tortured Jesus to the point of death but no more. He took the beatings and the mutulation for our sins. He gave His life being the sacrifice for all of our sins.|

|Reverence Only To God|
|Psalm 89:5-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|One should be careful of what one seems holy, worshipped. People these days seem to NEED their cell phone. People don't want to hear that we should fear God. When you truly know God then you'll have a reverence to Him. A lot of people hold a lot of things to a higher standard and those things will all burn up in the end. One can't take those things with them when they die. People come in Sunday after Sunday but they come and go the same way. It matters what we worship. There should only be one thing that is revered and that is God. Three categories should be thought on and given up one. Days and times are not to be reverenced. Six days should a person work but the seventh should be used as a day of rest and worship. Not only are days not to be reverenced but the events should also not be. There will never be a holiday more important than Jesus. Things should not be worshipped. In some religions items are used for worship, beads, crucifixes, etc. if those things are a part of your worship and keep you from worshipping if you do not have it, get rid of it. The church building itself has no power to save and therefore is not needed for God to show up. Should we respect it, honor it, keep it as clean as our own, yes-yes and yes again. But only God should be worshipped and not the building. The bible should not be worshipped. You must be careful about the Holy Word and not to let the book itself become more holy than God. There are times that you'll want to hold your bible, sleep with it, not leave its side, but in the end it's only a book. If your bible burnt to ash Jesus would still be Jesus and you could simply go out and get a new one. People should not be revered. Mary the mother of Jesus is no different than one of us and should not be higher than God. The Pope is commonly referred to as the Holy Father, His Holiness, The Rock, Supreme Pontiff, Holy of Kings, however he is no holy than the next person. The pastor of a church should also not be worshipped. When the time comes and the pastor leaves a church, some people will follow the man. Pastors will often have reverend as their title, a poor practice but they should not be reverenced. One can not worship everything and ever worship God. God is first and everything else should follow in its place. Acts 12:4, you can personally know the Pope and not know Jesus Christ and bust Hell wide open at your death.|

|We Don't Need A New Cart|
|2 Samuel 6:1-3 (Part of the Revival 2018 series).|
We live in a time where people don't want to hear the name of the Lord. They want a feel good religion. According to the Word of God, the Word when it's presented it should cut away at the sin which is a painful action. If you can sit in the church house and the Word is presented and you feel alright, then there's something wrong. People don't want to bare up with the weight of God. They don't want to do the work that God has given them to do. People don't reverence God like they used to. The respect of God is lost in the newer generations.
Heb 4:12 the Word of God is needed as a discerner. We need more pulpits and less stages. We don't need to hear lies about how good we are, we need to hear of how we are but a sinner. You can pick up a bible at just about any place but folks don't want to read them. The attendance number doesn't make it a church.
2 Chron 7:14-15 worship can be done in silence. Praising is done with movement. We need a Word from God. If you get close to God it'll get to the point that you won't care what others think about you. Be careful of the services that you sit thru. If it takes material objects to make you move and the Word of God makes you simply sit, you've got it all wrong. The world is invading our churches all over.
Jer 6:16 we need to get it right. A pulpit, a man that's not afraid to preach it and call sin-sin, a congregation that won't compromise and call sin -sin. Seek out the old paths. We need to get to the root of the problem and get rid of it.

|Dining With God|
|John 12:1-3 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Gal 2:22, Christ lives in us if you've been saved. Hopefully when you've come to the house of God you've prepared to dine with God. There are times that the meal that God has prepared isn't as sweet as we think it should be. We shouldn't turn our nose up to it as its good for us. John 6:35, God is the bread of life. When one comes to eat, Christ will satisfy. Family is good but Gods family is so much better. They work when no one is watching and uplifts others in Christ thru Christ and their obedience.
Worship is a must. Some of us get out of worship but we find ourselves down and needing to go back to worship. Sometimes we think we can do it ourselves, but we can't.
Salvation is the best thing from the meal. Have you ever seen someone else's salvation and their excitement? If a Christian denies Christ then you will become a stumbling block to others.
Martha is hospitable. Martha was a busy and was serving others. God blessed her with a gift of serving others. You should be welcoming as Martha when it comes to your church. She was practical, straight to the point. We should be to the point when it comes to sharing Christ with others. We shouldn't speak with words of great elegance only to confuse those that don't understand them.
Mary was a humble person. She was one of the first ones to the tomb of Christ. Mary was usually always found at the feet of Jesus. John 20:16, referred to Jesus as her Master. She was filled with 7 Devils when Jesus met her to which He promptly removed, Mark 1:22-24. 1 John 5:8, what God gives nothing can take away. We should be in great awe of what He does.
Lazarus sat at the table with Jesus the one that had just raised him from the dead. Just imagine what he would have thought. While Martha and Mary served Jesus and the table while Lazarus sat and thought of the one that raised him. John 17:1
