Keeping The Story Straight

  • Keeping The Story Straight – Is about how the Power of God is founded in what God spoke, wrote, and revealed through Christ Jesus. If we decide to add, modify, or delete anything from God’s Word then we are impacting the Power of God to be effective in our lives. If we add made-up stories to God’s Word, then we nullify its power to transform us into the image of Christ Jesus. We must keep God’s Word straight, so it can have impact on lives that are yet to come. Keeping God’s Word straight requires that we change, not that we change God’s Word to suite our desires and passion. We need to keep God’s Word just as it was given, so many can be saved, and the Power of God can still be effective today

God’s Protection

  • God’s Protection – is about learning how to live under God’s protection. One of the things that happens once we become a Christian is, we assume we are automatically put under God’s protection. But if we look into scripture it would become clear that we must seek God’s protection so we are shielded from the arrows of the devil, and our enemies. God’s does not extend his protection so we can keep on sinning, but to give us time to overcome our sin, and become more faithful and obedient to God.

Nothing Is Impossible For God

  • Nothing Is Impossible With God – it’s about each one of us learning that there is nothing impossible for God. While we like to believe within ourselves, yet many things are impossible for us. We must recognize our limitations, there are many things we cannot achieve within ourselves. We must learn to trust and have faith in God the Father through Christ Jesus, it’s the only way we can make it and overcome our troubles. While there are many things impossible for mankind, nothing is too hard for God, nothing is impossible for the Lord. If we place all our hope in him, if we place our very lives in his hand, and seek him, then we will see that through Christ Jesus there is nothing we cannot do through him according to God’s Will

The Race

  • The Race – whether we want to admit it or not, we are all in a race. Some of us are running to obtain everything we can in this world, hoping when it’s all said and done we will find joy and happiness. While others of us have come to understand that running a race to achieve things of this world could never bring us the peace, joy, and love we seek. We need to think about the race we are running to ensure everything we do is preparing us to run our race so it leads to God. We can’t waste time running our race hoping towards the end we can jump over and start running a race for God, we won’t make it in this way. We need God to prepare us for the race he has marked out for us, we need to run the race his way, all the way to the end.

Prepared By God

  • Prepared By God – is a teaching about letting God prepare us for the reason we were created. We have spent enough time in this world trying to prepare ourselves, trying to make a way for ourselves, it’s time to give ourselves over to God and let him prepare us for his calling. Only by being prepared by God will we be satisfied and not be in want, not desiring to chase after this world. Being prepared by God will change everything about us, it is the Lord who equips us and prepares us so what we do brings God glory.

God’s Will

  • God’s Will – This teaching is about learning to walk in God’s Will. Many of us believe we have a relationship with Christ Jesus, but we must ask ourselves the question, are we walking in God’s Will? It’s only by us following God’s Will can we achieve our purpose through Christ Jesus for our lives. God’s Will requires that we live a certain way, that we act a certain way, and that we obey his word in following his Son Christ Jesus. Do you know God’s Will for your life or you seeking his will, or are you just asking God to bless your will and plan?

No Time For God

  • No Time For God – Busy, busy …. We are all so busy, so we look for ways to shorten our time with God. We want the church service to be short, our prayers are short, our time studying God’s Word is short or none existing. We are too busy to spend time with God. God honors those who seek him, those who spend much time in prayer, and those who studies his Word. But for those who don’t have time for God, be assured God won’t have time for you. God’s Word is filled with scriptures teaching us about how we need to continuously seek the Lord so we can find him, so in our time of need, the Lord will answer our prayers. This requires you and I to spend a lot of time with God.

The Real You

  • The Real You –This teaching is about realizing that we cannot grow our faith without being true to ourselves and with God. Today’s world is teaching us to be fake and false, but how can we serve God if we are not being true with who we really are? When our lives are based on the fake and false things that we wear, things we put on, and the things we do to ourselves that changes us into something that we are not. We must be true to ourselves, so we can be true to God. We know God only deals with truth, so if we want the Lord to answer our prayers, we better get real with God regarding who we are.

Crying Out To God

  • Crying Out To God – is a teaching about learning to cry out to God in good and bad times so he knows our name and answer us. We can’t be the type of believer who allows pride to control our faith. Pride will make us stiff-neck and we won’t humble ourselves and cry out to God. We need to come before the Lord on bending knees, with our heart open, and tears flowing from our eyes. Crying aloud, Lord we have sinned, we have done wrong. Lord we cry out to you because you have blessed us in so many ways and we want to thank you. We need your grace and mercy Lord. With tears flowing from our heart, Lord hear us, harken to our cries.

All Glory Belongs To God

  • All Glory Belongs To God – in following, sharing, and preaching God’s Word, we receive blessings and favored from the Lord, but praise that are received should not be attached to us, but return to the throne of God. You and I cannot keep any of God’s glory for ourselves, allowing others to be lifted up and praised. We know that all things good comes from God, and he deserves all the glory. If God provided for us, then he deserves the glory. If the Lord healed us, then he deserves the glory. If God made a way for us, then he deserves all the praise and glory. All glory, honor, and praise belongs to God.

No Turning Back

  • No Turning Back - After we have established our faith correctly in the Lord, it is important that we grow and work on our salvation as taught by the Lord. We have to reach a point in our faith where no trouble, no loss, no situation, no circumstance can cause us to turn back to our old ways, to turn back to seeking things in this world. We have come too far, we can’t turn back now. We have overcome much through leaning on Jesus, we can’t turn away, we can’t turn back; we must continue to grow our faith through it all. If we turn back, we won’t be fit, we won’t be able to enter in God’s Kingdom if we turn back.

Growing Through Storms

  • Growing Through Storms – is a teaching about how we need to grow through all that life throws our way. We can chose to allow storms that come our way make us not believe or even worse, turn us away from God. We must come to understand and learn why storms are necessary in our lives, why storms are intended to help us grow in the Lord. Without a storm coming in our lives, nothing would make us take notice, nothing would make us change our behavior, and nothing would make us cry out to God.

Personal Walk With God

  • Personal Walk With God - This is a teaching about the importance of developing a personal walk with God, so we not only know him, but he knows us. It’s through a personal walk with the Lord that we are able to grow and mature. We are not in the Old Testament times when God accepted as one group of people. This is about you and I have a personal relationship, a personal walk with Christ Jesus so he won’t tell us he never knew us, and to get away from him. He will call us friend, because we walked with him, we followed the Lord.

Conditions of God

  • Conditions Of God – is a teaching about how God has established conditions (If’s) in his word that we must adhere to for blessings and favor to flow unto us. The Lord has given us his love unconditionally, but he has not given us his favor and blessings unconditionally, we must examine our lives as it relates God’s Word and the conditions in which God the Father will bless us through his Son Christ Jesus. For all the blessings and favor of God is manifested in Christ, but we must follow, obey, and apply God’s Word to our lives to receive.

Clinging To Self

  • Clinging To Self - This is a teaching about looking at our walk with the Lord and making sure we are not clinging to our old self. We have come to understand just how indulging our old self and old behaviors are, and how they will keep us from growing and maturing in Christ Jesus. We can’t serve the Lord while still desiring the things we did before coming to know Christ Jesus. All our old habits, behaviors, and sins have to be put to death, they must go for us to be able to faithfully follow and serve Christ Jesus in pleasing God the Father. It all must die, so we are free to serve, free to obey God

Only The Righteous

  • Only The Righteous - This is a teaching about the importance of us working to become a righteous Child of God as we grow in faith. God called us, but we must work to become righteous in his eyes. It’s not about being perfect, it is about being able to walk in the righteousness God has called us through Christ. In God’s Word he shares his standards by which we must live, teaching us how to do away with that which makes us unworthy. It is in God’s Righteousness that we elevate our lives beyond what we can do, because we know there is no good us outside of what God has poured into us. It is through us taking upon God’s Righteousness through Christ Jesus that we come to experience and know God for ourselves. Through God’s Righteousness we will be judged; only the righteous will see God

Mind Of Christ

  • The Mind of Christ - This message is a about learning what it means for us to take on the Mind of Christ Jesus. How do we take on the Attitude of Christ in our lives? It’s not easy, because we really desire to do things our own way. This world and Satan is working hard to ensure you and I live our lives with a troubled mind, so we worry and are afraid of many things. A person with a troubled mind cannot focus on God, and their prayers are hampered by daily trouble that consumes their thinking. But Christ Jesus is calling for us to take upon his attitude, to take upon his Spirit, so with a clear conscience, and we are able to serve God with our mind stayed on Jesus.

Circumcised Heart

  • Circumcised Heart - This is a teaching about the condition of our heart. God places a lot of emphasis on the condition of our heart, because it’s the gateway to our soul. The condition of our hearts represents the strength of our faith. Something’s in our heart has to be cut away by the Spirit of God so we can grow and have great faith. Everything that is in us that is not of the Lord needs to cut away. All anger, rage, adult, unfaithfulness, forgiveness, greed, selfness, and all sexual immorality has to be cut away so we can live before God with a circumcised heart by faith in Christ Jesus

Divided Body

  • Divided Body - This is a teaching about how the body of Christ needs to remember that we cannot function as a separated body. As the Word of God teaches us, a house that is divided cannot stand. So if the body of Christ is divided, it will not stand. As Christian’s we need to remove the divisions of faith, division of domination, and work together to achieve the plan of God, by being one in Christ Jesus. Our assignment is to strength the Body of Christ not to weaken it with our religion division.

Fear Of God

  • Fear of God– Is a teaching about learning the importance of having a fear of God within every believer. Without a fear of God living on the inside of us, though we believe, we won’t do what it says. Though we want God through Christ Jesus to bless and love us, we won’t put away our sins. It’s through learning to fear the Lord that you and I will stop sinning, it’s the only way we will treat each other right, it’s the only way we will change our lifestyle to be pleasing to God. Without the fear of God working on the inside of us, we want to do good, but we don’t. We have a desire to help others, but we won’t. The fear of God living on the inside of will make us obey, will make us share, will make us love one another. Fearing the Lord will make us sawn evil
