There was a time, in days past, that each of us lived apart from God. We did what the lusts of the flesh desired.
My destination was also hell. My old life was so far gone. I had no control over my flesh. When it was weak, I gave into the pleasures it desired.
It is a very sad day when a family member or friend passes away, that didn’t believe in God for salvation.
The times that I am far from God are the times that I am in sin or not reading God’s Word. It is always one or the other.
Don’t be a phony but a warrior for Christ. When all your friends are going out drinking and invite you to tag along, just say no.
You may have once had faith in God but since backslidden and gone after your own ways. In all this, your life is not over yet.
Commune with the Lord, anytime of the day, in prayer. It isn’t about numbers. God is always waiting for us to find rest in His presence.
When you give your life to Jesus, it is the most amazing thing ever. Your mind becomes invigorated in the Spirit.
One day soon, the wicked will tremble before the Lord in judgement. They may not be so keen to is judgements now but after death they will have no choice but to surrender to Him.
After preaching, I met this young man, who was with his friends. I asked him if he believed in Jesus Christ and he said no.
The same love that God has shown to us leads us to forgive one another. Jesus has taught that he shows mercy upon us as we have mercy upon others.
Think of the joy you would be able to feel if sin wasn’t tearing you down. It is the weight of our sins that burden us.
I know that Jesus loves me. For I was once a wanderer in life and Jesus didn’t give up on me. I was caught up in fulfilling the lusts of the flesh.
God’s ways are good. He is the meaning of all good things. The Father’s great love changes lives. What the Lord offers, people would run for, if they truly knew the meaning.
I continued down 8th and Main, and started preaching on Matthew, chapter 4. I declared, Jesus said “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Don’t worry about those that rise up against you. There are enemies against the faith of God but even they can be saved.
Trusting in your own heart or someone else that there is no God, is insane. There is always room to learn.
God loves the humble for they are open to receive Him. God’s counsel is taken with thanks. They are open to see the wickedness in their hearts.
What you’ve once done for the Lord will mean nothing, if you are now living in habitual sin. You can’t say, Lord, but what about the mission trip I did 2 years ago.
Though I felt far from the Lord, I started looking to Him for relief. In all my shame, I came to God for mercy.
The Lord God knows who loves or hates His words. Most people would rather walk in the ways of the world then change their ways.
Submit your lives to God. No longer let the members of your body fight inside of you. There is nothing good that can come from this.
Choose ye, this day, whom you will serve. I pray that your heart is compelled to repent, if you are in sin. If you are covered by the blood of Jesus, then rejoice.
People tend to live life freely and not fear death, but on the flip side, don’t understand the consequences of hell that awaits them.
Jesus has done such great things in my life. Because of this, I know He can do even greater things for each of you.
The heart of the Lord is pure. He is virtuous above all things. There is only holiness in the Lord. His ways are higher than anything in this world.
Get back up when you sin. Humble yourself and come to God in prayer for deliverance. God continues to beckon us home, though we have strayed.
If any of you have strayed from the path of God then get on your knees now and pray. Confess your sins before the Lord.
There will be a day when everyone will be judged before the Lord, Jesus Christ. He can see the person we are today and the person we can become.
Let us now review our own lives before God. If you died today, would you be ready to meet Jesus in judgement?
We know that habitual sinners will not inherit the kingdom of God. However, this doesn’t mean we won’t ever sin.
