Delivered from the Flesh

  • Date: November 14, 2016
  • Verse: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
  • Summary:

    When we're talking about the works of the spirit, many of our minds are going towards deliverance from the financial situation we're in or the sickness that's in our bodies. But I want us to realize that we are talking about these things to be delivered from the flesh and to be able to take on the character of Christ. It's when I'm weak that I finally realize that I can't do enough to please God, and I'm going to stop trying. Finally, His strength is able to work in us and begin to show forth the fruit of the Spirit. "I'm no longer doing things out of obligation.

Just Believe and See That He is Good

  • Date: October 19, 2018
  • Verse: “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:13)
  • Summary:

    The goodness of God. The word "goodness" is very interesting. When we say, "God is good," we are really saying, "God shows favor and goodwill toward me." God is always showing favor and goodwill. "Well, some of this stuff doesn't look very favorable." All of the adversities that we face in life have one purpose behind them: Christlikeness. All of the adversities that we face in this life have one purpose behind them: that we be conformed to the image of Jesus, that we die to self. "I don't understand." You never will. His ways are higher than our ways.

God is Our Sufficiency

  • Date: October 17, 2018
  • Verse: “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” (Psalm 23:6)
  • Summary:

    What do you think: are you content? The cause of discontentment is that you don't believe the love of God for you. You don't believe that Jehovah is Jehovah Jireh. We miss the sovereignty aspect of God. We want to instruct Him like Job did. We're not content to be part of the twelve. In our ambition, we want to argue who's the greatest. Does anybody in here have a little ambition that needs to die? I'm not talking about ambition for the kingdom, I'm not talking about ambition to embrace the cross and die to yourself.

Our Contentment is in God

  • Date: October 15, 2018
  • Verse: “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1)
  • Summary:

    I want to talk a little bit about: how do we see God? How do you see Him? Do you see Him the same in your trials as you do in the mountaintop? God hasn't changed. He has the ability to change all circumstances, amen? Why shouldn't we worship Him? He is bigger than the circumstances. The dealing with God in our lives today has nothing to do with the momentary ease of life, the comfort, the blessings that God has bestowed upon us: the bigger house, the bigger bank account, the job that brings with it a better aspect of self-esteem.

The Law is Merciful and Good

  • Date: October 11, 2018
  • Verse: “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.” (Exodus 33:19)
  • Summary:

    Let's turn to the book of Exodus for just a moment. I want to look at a couple of different passages that I think will be a blessing to us. Exodus 33, as the Lord begins to reveal Himself to Moses and the covenant is being established-that great Mosaic covenant that includes the Law. The Law is good and holy and just. What a great gift Father gave us in the Law! Some people see the Law as restrictive. The Law is our schoolmaster that prepares us for the lordship of Jesus in our life. It's the light that illuminates our path and keeps us from straying.

God is Always Good

  • Date: October 9, 2018
  • Verse: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)
  • Summary:

    God is good! It's kind of interesting, there are some of the different cultures wherever you are. I found myself at times out among these and I make that statement, "God is good," and the reaction is, "All the time!" Anybody ever ran into the "All-the-time"-ers? I've often wondered when that immediate response comes back-you say, "God's good," and it's, "All the time!"-I wonder if they really believe that? As we sit here now, we say, "God is good!" The fact of the matter is He is good all the time. He's good when things aren't going good.

Self-Deception Puts You in Danger

  • Date: October 5, 2018
  • Verse: “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.” (Galations 5:14-15)
  • Summary:

    Turn to Galatians, Chapter 5. He's talking about the liberty they have from the law, and how they're to walk in the Spirit and not trust in anything in the flesh. They can't trust in circumcision for their righteousness. It's by grace through faith that we're saved. Then he comes down here, and he says, "You guys have run well." See verse 7. "But who's hindering you now? Don't fall back into a trust in the law and works." Then he makes an interesting statement in verse 9. He says, "A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

Be a Godly Example in Conflicts

  • Date: October 3, 2018
  • Verse: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” (1 Corinthians 1:10)
  • Summary:

    Many of us get in conflicts over things that are not sin. We're in conflict over our opinions or over our feelings that have gotten hurt. "It didn't go my way." We have that in our marriages. Things that are causing conflict and confusion have been there for years sometimes, and it's not even sin. It's just that your feelings that have gotten hurt. Guess whose feelings don't get hurt? It is a dead man. "Yeah, but you don't understand, Pastor." Yes, you're right. I don't have any feelings. My feelings get hurt very easily. I'm serious.

Unity Begins at Home

  • Date: October 1, 2018
  • Verse: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” (1 Corinthians 1:10)
  • Summary:

    We've talked a lot about the love of God. And in the love of God of course, we talked about the love of God being expressed to us and through us as it relates to our ability to forgive one another. If we don't experience and know the love of God, we'll never have the grace to forgive one another. As we looked at forgiveness, we saw all of the different aspects of aphiemi, that Greek word that holds us to such a standard. Both forgiveness and love are to be "even as I." "Even as I," God says.

Let Yourself Be Loved

  • Date: September 28, 2018
  • Verse: “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” (John 13:35)
  • Summary:

    We've been dealing with the love of God and understanding what the Holy Spirit emphasizes so clearly. "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another" (John 13:35). As a fellowship, I believe we have been a great example of that over the years. We don't compare ourselves with anybody else. We compare ourselves with the Word of God, and because of that we know that there's room for improvement.

Love Loves Truth

  • Date: September 24, 2018
  • Verse: “Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth…” (1 Corinthians 13:6)
  • Summary:

    Love rejoices in the truth. It's what we shared a little earlier. It doesn't feed on what is wrong; it feeds on what is right. We see the things that we can relate together in the Word of God, and we edify them in that and we commune in that and we are not looking for evil or wrong. Love rejoices in the Word; it rejoices when people choose the Word against their own emotions.

Love Is Not Calculating

  • Date: September 21, 2018
  • Verse: “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil...” (1 Corinthians 13:4-5)
  • Summary:

    Love thinks no evil; it doesn't calculate the evil that was done to us. We have laughed about and talked about the woman who says, "Well, I've forgiven them; it's forgiven." What's forgiven? "Well, do you remember the night that you said this?" No, I don't really remember that. (That sets it off). "You don't remember? It was raining, it was at 6:32, and you had on that blue shirt!" Love doesn't calculate the evil done to oneself; it doesn't keep a record of the wrongs.
