Text: Luke 10:24-37 (King James Version)       

  "Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people."

                                       The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, "If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;"

 

We are all created Different but we all have the same purpose.

 

Luke 10:24   For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Luke 10:25   And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

 Luke 10:26   He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest  thou?

Luke 10:27   And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

Luke 10:28   And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

Luke 10:29   But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

Luke 10:30   And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

Luke 10:31   And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:32   And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:33   But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Luke 10:34   And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Luke 10:35   And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Luke 10:36   Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

Luke 10:37   And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

 

Let's pray. Father,  Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice.
Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

 

What is our reason for coming to church and assembling ourselves together as a body of believers?

Ask yourselves this question tonight. Am I coming because I need the Church or am I coming because I believe the Church needs me?

 

1 Corinthians 12:7   But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

1 Corinthians 12:8   For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:9   To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:10   To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

1 Corinthians 12:11   But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

1 Corinthians 12:12   For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:13   For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:14   For the body is not one member, but many.

1 Corinthians 12:15   If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1 Corinthians 12:16   And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

1 Corinthians 12:17   If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

1 Corinthians 12:18   But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.

1 Corinthians 12:19   And if they were all one member, where were the body?

1 Corinthians 12:20   But now are they many members, yet but one body.

Revelation 3:14   And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Revelation 3:15   I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

Revelation 3:16   So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Revelation 3:17   Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Revelation 3:18   I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Revelation 3:19   As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Revelation 3:20   Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:21   To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

 

Matthew 6:16   Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Matthew 6:17   But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

Matthew 6:18   That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

Matthew 6:19   Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth  corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

Matthew 6:20   But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Matthew 6:21   For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

 

James 2:17   Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

James 2:18   Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works.

James 2:19   Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

James 2:20   But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

 

Genesis 4:2   And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

Genesis 4:3   And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

Genesis 4:4   And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

Genesis 4:5   But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

Genesis 4:6   And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

Genesis 4:7   If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Genesis 4:8   And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

Genesis 4:9   And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

Genesis 4:10   And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

Genesis 4:11   And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

Genesis 4:12   When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

Genesis 4:13   And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

 

Matthew 25:31   When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Matthew 25:32   And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

Matthew 25:33   And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Matthew 25:34   Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Matthew 25:35   For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Matthew 25:36   Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Matthew 25:37   Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

Matthew 25:38   When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Matthew 25:39   Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

Matthew 25:40   And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:41   Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Matthew 25:42   For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

Matthew 25:43   I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Matthew 25:44   Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Matthew 25:45   Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

Matthew 25:46   And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

 

Hebrews 4:13   Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Hebrews 4:14   Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

Hebrews 4:15   For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Hebrews 4:16   Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

 

The personal heart relationship must first be corrected and in right standings!

Jeremiah 17:9   The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Jeremiah 17:10   I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

 

Revelation 2:23   And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. When you are down to nothing but Gods word the fire is about to fall.

 

Revelation 2:5   Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

 

James 4:8   Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

 

Acts 2:1   And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

 

Acts 2:2   And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

Acts 2:3   And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

Acts 2:4   And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

 

Acts 4:31   And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
