Ephesians 6:6-8 ~ The Spiritual Perceptions for Serving Christ

These are not psychological principles. It’s a relationship with Christ. Have the correct perception here, because you are not serving men by obeying your master, you are serving Christ. It’s not me taking my orders from the Lord and going over here and having this human relationship. No, this is between me and the Lord. I’m serving the Lord; I’m not serving people.

Acts 20:17-24

I’m going to suffer at the hands of people things that I never would have suffered had I not received Christ. Well, that is not very inviting except for the fact that loving the Lord and receiving the Lord is responding to what He did for me. He suffered at the hands of sinners for me and now He asks me to follow Him suffering at the hands of sinners.

Sermon ~ The Most Important Spiritual Principle of the Christian Faith

You see, when God gives the commission, God fulfills the commission. This is His work, not ours. Nowhere did God commission us, in our human effort, to do His work for Him.

Sermon ~ Satan’s Only Weapon

Peter is talking to Christians. The devil is walking around and his only weapon against a believer in Christ is to find something to occupy the attention of the mind and take that believer away from Christ. Not spiritually, not as far as salvation goes, but to take one’s attention away from Christ.

Hebrews 13:10-17

Therefore, we should lift up our sacrifice, that is, the praise of our lips. We don’t bring animals, or beads, or physical tangible objects, to present to the Lord. We offer to Him the praises of our lips. That is our sacrifice. Confessing, notice the participle, to the name of Jesus. I belong to Jesus Christ, I confess to His name, and I identify with Him.

John 3:1-6

For people to see the kingdom of God, they must be born from above, they must experience a spiritual birth. Jesus is pointing to a heavenly, spiritual birth. He was saying to Nicodemus, “You’ve had a physical birth, now you need a spiritual birth.” Isn’t that interesting that the person in the highest religious order that a person can be in, can’t make it. They can’t even see and participate with the kingdom of God unless they experience a spiritual birth. A person is not saved until they have experienced a spiritual birth.

Hebrews 4:11-13

We can hear God’s Word and we can believe God’s Word, but we can also refuse to allow God’s Word to affect our hearts. We can cut it off at the head.  That is, we could intellectually and mentally get to know it and yet refuse to be persuaded. The Word of God is a very, very powerful thing and it is applied by the Spirit of God through persuasion.  Without surrendering to that persuasion we are lost.

Romans 6:12-14 ~ Sin Shall Not Have Dominion Over You

The person who doesn’t know the Lord, who is not born of the Spirit of God, who has never been saved, that person can say, “The devil made me do it.”  A Christian can’t say that.  When a believer sins, we sin because we want to.  The Lord has delivered us from the sin dominating our lives.

II Corinthians 10:12-18

“If you want to measure someone’s life and ministry, measure it by what God is doing through them, what God has divided out to them, what God has done through them.  It is a very dangerous thing to compare yourself among other people and to compare yourself […]

II Corinthians 10:7-11

There is something wrong here and that is why Paul says, “Compare others with us, as you have us for an example, see if they are walking with Christ like we are.” So, I take everything that I hear today and I go back to Paul’s letters […]

Mark 1:1-8

“The moment that a person receives Jesus Christ into their heart, His Spirit literally comes in and cleanses them and resides in their spirit. So it is very important to realize that salvation does not come because I religiously believe in God.  That I become a child […]
