Text:  Heb 11:24 28  (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;"

 

Hebrews 11:24   By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

Hebrews 11:25   Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

Hebrews 11:26   Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.

Hebrews 11:27   By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Hebrews 11:28   Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

Hebrews 11:29   By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

 

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

 

Casual Christians are those who want to be numbered among the Flock, but could care less about following the Shepherd. They want the forgiveness the cross of Christ brings but never intend to carry their own cross. They want warm, fuzzy moments on Sunday mornings but offer no commitment to Jesus on Monday mornings. In short, they want the crown without the cross

 

God does not look at a man we might look at a man. He looks and evaluates the HEART!

 

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

 

You and I are either For HIM Wholehearted or we are AGAINST him All together!

 

Proverbs 16:5   Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

Proverbs 16:6   By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.

Proverbs 16:7   When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Proverbs 16:8   Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.

Proverbs 16:9   A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

 

Matthew 26:14   Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,

Matthew 26:15   And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.

Matthew 26:16   And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

 

Matthew 15:8   This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Matthew 15:9   But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

 

Luke 12:34   For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

 

Matthew 16:24   Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Matthew 16:25   For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Matthew 16:26   For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Matthew 16:27   For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

 

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.

Matthew 6:22   The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Matthew 6:23   But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:24   No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Matthew 6:25   Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Matthew 6:26   Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Matthew 6:27   Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Matthew 6:28   And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

Matthew 6:29   And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Matthew 6:30   Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Matthew 6:31   Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

Matthew 6:32   (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Matthew 6:33   But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 

1 Corinthians 6:20   For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

 

Ephesians 2:10   For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

 

1)  It is either all about Him or its al about YOU

Matthew 5:16   Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

 

1 Corinthians 6:17   But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:18   Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

1 Corinthians 6:19   What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

 

It is TIME to get out of the WAY!

 

John 3:30   He must increase, but I must decrease.

John 3:31   He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

John 3:32   And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

John 3:33   He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

John 3:34   For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

  

1 Timothy 6:6   But godliness with contentment is great gain.

1 Timothy 6:7   For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

1 Timothy 6:8   And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

1 Timothy 6:9   But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

1 Timothy 6:10   For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

1 Timothy 6:11   But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

1 Timothy 6:12   Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

 

Psalms 138:6   Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Psalms 138:7   Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

Psalms 138:8   The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
