Die to Your Will so God Can Work Through You

  • Date: August 7, 2019
  • Verse: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 6:11)
  • Summary:

    We have been talking about the renewing of our hearts, a refreshing of the spirit for this hour, the age that we're living in. The Lord is building and working on His tabernacle for us, both individually and also the corporate body of Christ here and we are to be encouraged that He is the Master builder, and He's building that that will be for His glory. He said, "Upon this rock I'll build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18).

Do We Even Notice Our Corrupt Communication?

  • Date: August 19, 2019
  • Verse: “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.” (James 1:26)
  • Summary:

    Our comments about others can go from everything. Like what people do with their own time and their own money. And, as the grapevine goes around and around, it comes back also, you know. I hear the comments about myself and about Greer about how we live and what we do and where we go. And what you think about it. Nothing stays where you spoke it. And as these things continue, you know, and you hear this and you hear that. There are always judgments and questions.

An Unbridled Tongue Reveals a Deceived Heart

  • Date: August 18, 2019
  • Verse: “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.” (James 1:26)
  • Summary:

    In Ephesians the fifth chapter He says, "Listen, don't let these things be once named among you" (verse 3). Don't let this stuff go on, don't allow this "...foolish talking," verse 4 says, "…nor jesting," this nonsense, "…but rather giving of thanks." And He says again here, just like He did in Galatians, the people who do these things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Rebuke Unkind Speaking

  • Date: August 17, 2019
  • Verse: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:” (Ephesian 4:26)
  • Summary:

    We've talked about these things that we've found in our midst. We're been dealing with things in our midst of this same variety of which we're speaking. Strife, division, schisms, seditions. And we find it in every level from the youth to the oldest among us. And there's no place for this in the body of Christ. And we talk, and I believe that we're so sincere-I don't doubt that. I believe that we are thankful for one another. I really do, I believe that most of us here are truly appreciative of this family that God's given us. I believe that.

Put Away Evil Speaking

  • Date: August 16, 2019
  • Verse: “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.” (Ephesian 4:31-32)
  • Summary:

    Father, we come, we stand before You, and we stand in awe, for You are an awesome God! And You are holy. And Father, as we come before You, we are in awe of You, and we just thank You for Your great love and tender mercies for us. Father, we come, and we ask that You would remove that coal from the altar and put it upon our lips. O, Lord, we're a people of unclean lips. We so need the sanctifying of our hearts and our mouths, that we could see the Lord high and lifted up, that You would come into this place and shake us, Lord.

Control Your Tongue

  • Date: August 14, 2019
  • Verse: “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” (James 3:8)
  • Summary:

    Do you know that one of your idle words, one of your flippant comments to somebody else can cause a wound in a brother or sister that will never go away? You can wound your brother's and sister's soul. And dear God, how this happens in our marriages! In a moment of just anger and wanting self to be somehow, "Look at me! Listen to me!" and to try to make a point we speak some harsh word or critical word. "Marrying you was the biggest mistake I ever made." That will never go away. "Sorry that we ever married.

Use Much Speaking to Edify

  • Date: August 14, 2019
  • Verse: “Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.” (1 Timothy 3:11)
  • Summary:

    First Timothy 3:11, talks about the wives. It says the wives of those that are spiritually mature are the wives that are able to teach their children and train them up in the home. A good wife is not a slanderer, is sober, her life is disciplined and discreet. You'll notice the one thing that's spoken here about the wives and women in general as you look at so many of these different areas that's very interesting.

Love is not Driven to Express Its Opinion

  • Date: August 12, 2019
  • Verse: “But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.” (Galatians 5:15)
  • Summary:

    We see the list and admonition in Galatians 5:19-21, that those that do these things will not inherit the kingdom of God. If you're involved in, if you're causing strife, you will not inherit the kingdom of God. If you've set yourself up in your own eyes as someone who is the authority, God's representative, the one who judges the actions of the rest of us here in this community, you will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Take Heed, You’re Building on God’s Foundation

  • Date: August 5, 2019
  • Verse: “According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.” (1 Corinthians 3:10)
  • Summary:

    We are laborers together with God. As we co-labor with God, listen to the Holy Spirit. He says, starting in verse 10, as you work with God, and as you see yourself as God's building and laborer, "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

We Are Laborers Together with God

  • Date: July 31, 2019
  • Verse: “According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.” (1 Corinthians 3:10)
  • Summary:

    God is building His church. The labor is in vain if the Lord isn't building the house. It's about letting God use you. Every generation needs to be full of the Holy Ghost and the power of God. We want to be encouraged that, as God's doing a work, it's a renewing work in you. We're not building on men's foundations. There is only one foundation, and it's built every generation upon the apostles, the prophets, and Jesus the Cornerstone. Zechariah said, "It's not by power. It's not by might. It's by My Spirit, saith the Lord.

God is Building a Spotless Church

  • Date: July 29, 2019
  • Verse: “And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 31:28)
  • Summary:

    God's building a spotless church. Go to Proverbs, Chapter 9, verse 1. There are a number of points I want us to get to. "Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars." We have talked a lot about wisdom. We were talking about forsaking the world's foolishness, and we're living and moving in the way of understanding as the sixth verse says. But this house, of which you and I are living stones, is being built by the wisdom of God. It's being built by the power of God.

God is Building His Church

  • Date: July 24, 2019
  • Verse: “For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.” (1 Corinthians 3:9)
  • Summary:

    We want to look at a couple of verses that speak very clearly about the One who is the builder of our lives, and the Architect and Builder of this kingdom in which we live. Hebrews, Chapter 3, verse 4 says, "For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God." We've talked a lot about the sovereignty of God recently. He that builds all things is God. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28). He that builds all things is God.

Rest in the Work God’s Doing in You

  • Date: July 22, 2019
  • Verse: “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” (Psalms 127:1)
  • Summary:

    We want to talk about resting in the work that God's doing in your life and being able to come to that rest. I'm not even going to talk as much about the co-laboring part. We may talk about that later, but it's to rest in the confidence: "I'm God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus." There will be good works that come from that creation and that workmanship. It's a daily process.

    One thing about things that are built by God is they are built to last. They're built "Ford tough.
