2 Timothy 1:7. Today, we focus on what God has not given to us: A spirit of Fear. Fear should not be a part of our life in Jesus. Fear keeps us from doing what we are called to do. Fear paralyzes our faith. Don’t let fear keep you from doing what God has called you to do.
1 Samuel 3:2-10, 19. Several times, Samuel heard someone calling. It wasn’t until Eli told him to respond with “Speak, Lord, for your servant listens.” Many of us could not respond that way because we are not listening for the voice of God. God is calling out to us today, are you listening?
Mark 4:35-41. If Jesus has given you direction for your walk with Him, then you can trust that you will make it to your destination. No matter the trials or storms you will face, if Jesus said it, you can trust that He will get you there. Don’t let fear paralyze your faith when things fall apart. Keep you faith and trust in His leading.
Selected verses from 1 Samuel 15. God desires 100% obedience from us. Do we follow God 100%, or do we do just enough to get by? To not fully obey God means disobedience, and disobedience has a price. For Saul, that price was loss of his kingdom.

Selected Verses. We must be certain that we are doing the will of God. Don’t be deceived by false teachers, and don’t join them. I know the previous sentences looked like warning labels, but it is what is needed today. We all fall victim to false teachings from time to time, but as we grow and mature, hopefully we will see those false teachings for what they are before we fall into them.
Various verses. For the Christian, we have freedom in Christ. We have the freedom to choose whether we follow Jesus, or if we follow our old sin nature. One is beneficial and profitable to our life and faith. The other will cause us to miss our reward.
Various verses. For the Christian, we have freedom in Christ. Yet, all too often we use that freedom for the wrong purposes. We use that freedom to indulge in our sinful nature. That is not what that freedom is for. If you choose to sin, that is your choice, no one else’s. Don’t bring sin into your life, into your family, into your home, or into your church in any form.
As we continue our study on the Great Commission, I teach today on the topic of teaching. We are to go and to teach. Many of us, myself included, don’t consider ourselves teachers. Yet, as we see in todays episode, that is exactly what we are called to do.
Selected verses from Matthew 10. Jesus told us to “Go.” What did He mean? Go is an action word, it requires us to do something.

The church today seems to want people to “Come.” It’s up to us, the congregation, to go and be the hands and feet of Jesus in our homes, immunities and workplaces.

2 Timothy 4:6-8. After giving Timothy some instruction into doing his good works, Paul reveals the results of doing those good works.

Haggai 1:2-5. At a time in when the Temple lie in ruins, Israel was too busy building up their houses farther than building up the house of God. For us today, we often sacrifice the things of God and the house of God to build up our bank account, our 401 that we neglect the house of God. Where are you building up?
2 Chronicles 33:21-23. Unfortunately, Manasseh’s son never repented of his sins. He lived and walked in the way of his father, before his father repented of his sin. As parents, we need to tell our children about Jesus, about God and about the Holy Spirit. If they don’t hear it from you, where will they hear it from?
