|Why Do You Do?|
|Philippians 3:1-15 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Whatever we do we should do it as we are to do it for the Lord. There are many that do things in Gods name but they don't even know Him. There are those out there that think that just because they are good or do good things means they are okay with Christ. Many so called preachers on tell many that if you're good hearted then it's alright with God. Phil 3:7-8 Where is your zeal and desire for the one that loves you? We often live in ourselves and want the things that comfort ourselves. Are you concerned if He is pleased with you? A "just get by" attitude doesn't please God. Phil 3:9-10 How many really try to know God to get closer, to know His attributes? You should desire to to know Christ like He knows you. Strive after Him! The greatest treasure that your heart would ever desire is Heaven. Everyone wants to go to Heaven but they don't know how to get there. They've been deceived on how to get there. So do you want to go to Heaven? Phil 3:12-14 We should chase after Jesus because He first loved us, not us loving Him first. Forget those things that cause you to distress. Fix your eyes on the goal ahead and go for it! There is a prize to be gained at the end of the journey. Heaven is the prize and if you miss it, you've missed it ALL. Once you get to Heaven the fighting, suffering, and longing stops. Phil 3:15 If you think different than what was just mentioned, then you're wrong and Hell bound. 2 Cor 5:9, the love of Christ should make you get up and do it all for Him because He loved you first. If you're a Christian then you have NO excuse to do what it takes for Christ.|

|A Little Space For Grace|
|Ezra 9:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Have you ever been in a place where you know that a person has been given ever opportunity to make things right with God but they don't take it? The preacher can warn and scold but nothing will change until those begin to turn from their wicked ways. God loves the sinner. There is and will be a great price to pay for sins and rebellion. Satan doesn't want anyone to have any victory with God. So where is the church right now? Ezra 9:8; each and every time the Christian takes one step in Gods direction Satan is two steps on their heals. We still have a problem to this day and it's called sin. If you call yourself holy, a Christian, then you have a terrible urge to satisfy your flesh. The only way to find true victory is to turn your back to sin. We are living in a little space of grace. Compared to eternity this time that we live on earth is just a short time. One reason that grace is still here is to allow a way of escape. Isa 55:6; there is a end where grace will be no more. Seek Him while grace is here. Another reason is to be a nail for God. Once He saves you, be an anchor, unmovable. We are secure in His grace. The last reason is to support. God will never stop loving His sheep, searching, providing for, building up, reviving. In the end of a Christians life, they will be revived with Him for eternity. Grace expires when the rapture occurs.|

|Righteousness (Part 2)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Deut 30 references Rom 10:5. One must complete the law in its entirety. No one has been able to keep the law perfectly therefore we are guilty. The works of the flesh will not be accepted as a payment into Heaven. Jesus Christ would have never been sent as a sacrifice if there was another way into Heaven. Do you think you're a good person? If you're trying to get into Heaven by any other way but by Jesus Christ then you're creating a self righteous religion that will get you into Hell. There is a way that seems right but it WILL lead to death, Hell. How many people go to the doctor if they are well? Likewise, how many people will go to Jesus when everything seems to be going good? Most people judge their relationship with Christ by watching others. If that person lives just as good as they do then everything just be ok.
Perfection is the only thing that will go to Heaven. There is not a single person that has mastered perfection. What makes a person perfect is by accepting Christ as their savior. Who in their right mind would say that they would rather go to Hell than to Heaven? Christ has already done everything He can to allow you to go to Heaven.
So how do you get saved? There is one thing required and that's to believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, Rom 10:9-10;13.

|Righteousness (Part 1)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you ask anybody if they would go to Heaven, most would say yes that they would. Most are not even saved but think they're good enough to get into Heaven. The prayer should be for those that are lost to be saved. In order for soul to be saved it must know that it's lost. We live in a culture that think they are moral and good and do not think they need God. Prov 30:12 does this not sound like we are living in this generation? Visiting an altar does not make one saved. Church attendance will not make one saved.
It's very important that you look at yourself in the mirror and make sure that your sins are taken care of with God. Self is usually at the heart of the sin. Those that go around establishing how righteous they are, are like white sepulchers. The outsides look and seem beautiful but on the inside they are full of death, rotting flesh and bones. Self righteousness is for what? What does it gain you to be self righteous? We are born into a self righteous body that we all struggle with. If you don't think there is a problem then that's one of your problems. Simply looking at church attendance and comparing the numbers for each service will quickly explain a self righteous attitude they people do not need to worship or repent. 2 Cor 10:12 comparing us to the dung, waste of cattle - farmers look at the waste in order to make sure they are healthy and eating correctly. In the end, it's still dung, waste. One pile of dung is just the same as another pile of dung just the same as one person is just a human the same as the next.

|Called To Be|
|1 Corinthians 1:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Would a prophet of God write to our church as a church of God? If you are a child of God, then there should be a constant sanctification. Everyone of us are completely different from the other. Not everyone has been called of God. When God calls you and you become saved, God gives you a purpose and calls you to service. You need to understand what your purpose is. God didn't call you to warm the bench. If show no fruit, you'll need to examine your salvation. Just because you do what another Christian does, doesn't mean your a Christian. If your children don't want to attend church, drag them in, once they are saved, they'll want to come. Being on a church roll doesn't mean your getting to heaven and a part of the body of Christ. Being sanctified is a constant working and purifying. Being a saint is not someone, some person declares, it's what God divinely called you to be. A living sacrifices is moving. If you are truly saved, you are a living sacrifices. You are supposed to be holy, a saint unto God. If there is not a consistent desire to draw nearer to God, then who are you truly worshipping? If you live with no guilt or conviction of sin, you're probably not a Christian. To be or not to be, that is the question. According to Christ, a Christian has been called to be a saint.|
