I LOVE DADDY’S HOUSE!


Daddy's home

MY GRANDDAUGHTER LOOKS AT MY WIFE AND & I AND SAYS, “I want to go to MAMMY”S house.”

She loves coming to our home and hanging out with her Mammie!  

IN RECENT YEARS PEOPLE HAVE LOST THE PASSION TO BE IN OUR FATHER’S HOUSE!

It used to be that going to church (Daddy’s house) was exciting and it was so woven into the fabric of our lives that it was weird when we were not there on a Sunday and then during the week for teaching.

IN TODAY’S SOCIETY going to Daddy’s home for Sunday morning breakfast or brunch is so low on people’s priorities list.  IT IS CONCERNING!!

Our world offers sports for our children, sleep for the lethargic, money for the craving, excuses for the spiritually stagnant, so the family is no longer coming home to Daddy’s house on a Sunday.  

This might seem like no BIG DEAL, but it is the cunning craftiness of the diabolical to disengage the children from their destiny.  The less you are in the house of our Father, the less you are connected to His vision and direction.

“PASTOR, I PRAY AND READ THE WORD EVERY DAY – I DON’T NEED CHURCH!”

If this is true then why did Father create it?

Church is not man’s idea – it was a God creation just like at creation in Gen. 1.

Jesus is the HEAD and He gave gifts to man (Eph. 4:11-16).

READJUST YOUR PRIORITIES – MAKE DADDY’S HOUSE A PRIORITY FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN AND NOT THE SECOND THOUGHT.  STOP MAKING GOD’S HOME A PLACE WHERE OUR NEXT GENERATION WILL SEE IT AS, “if they have time” instead of LIFESTYLE.

WE ARE CREATING A GODLESS GENERATION FROM WITHIN THE “CHURCH” WHEN WE MAKE DADDY’S HOME A WASTE OF TIME.

Heb. 10:25, not forsaking our meeting together [as believers for worship and instruction], as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more [faithfully] as you see the day [of Christ’s return] approaching.

HOW IT WOULD WOUND MY WIFE’S HEART IF OUR CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDREN DID NOT WANT TO COME TO MAMMY & BAMPIE’S HOUSE.

JESUS DEALS WITH EXCUSES…..


excuses

IN CHURCHES ACROSS THE WORLD ON A GIVEN SUNDAY 1/4 TO 1/3 OF THE CONGREGATIONS ARE NOT AT GOD’S HOUSE AS HE COMMANDED.

The is an epidemic of the heart!

THIS IS NOT ABOUT CHURCH ATTENDANCE, THIS IS ABOUT OUR HEARTS AND THE PRIORITIES OF LIFE!

Jesus dealt with this EXACT TOPIC in Luke 14:16-24, But Jesus said to him, “A man was giving a big dinner, and he invited many guests; 17 and at the dinner hour he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, because everything is ready now.’ 18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first one said to him, ‘I have purchased a piece of land and I have to go out and see it; please consider me excused.’ 19 Another one said, ‘I have purchased five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please consider me excused.’ 20 And another said, ‘I have [recently] married a wife, and for that reason I am unable to come.’ 21 So the servant came back and reported this to his master. Then [his master,] the head of the household, became angry [at the rejections of his invitation] and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and the lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and the disabled and the blind and the lame.’ 22 And the servant [after returning] said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ 23 Then the master told the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that my house may be filled [with guests]. 24 For I tell you, not one of those who were invited [and declined] will taste my dinner.’”  AMP

JESUS INVITED GUESTS TO DINNER AND GAVE THEM A SHOUT WHEN SUPPER WAS ON THE TABLE.  THE RESPONSE WAS NOT WHAT HE WAS EXPECTING.

Excuses:

I bought some land and want to drive the ATV on it to check it out!

I bought a new car and am going to test it out by skipping church and going on a road trip!

I got married and we are just being lazy and do not want to get out of bed on a Sunday morning!

I love my sport and it is played on Sunday morning so I cannot make it to church!

I got an opportunity to make extra money on a Sunday so I cannot make it to God’s house any longer!

SO MANY EXCUSES……

JESUS IS COMING REALLY SOON……CAST YOUR EXCUSES OUT THE DOOR AND LOVE JESUS FIRST!

WHAT WOULD HAVE TO HAPPEN TO GET YOU TO FULLY COMMIT TO CHRIST?

SLIP-SLIDING AWAY


SlipSliding

IT IS NOT THE BIG THINGS THAT STEAL YOUR FAITH…..IT IS SUBTLE, SNEAKY, SLOW!

SO MANY ARE SLIP-SLIDIN AWAY!!!

It is so sad watching people plant poor seeds that produce death in their lives.

EACH SEED HAS DIRECT IMPACT ON YOUR NATURAL AND ETERNAL HARVEST.

“I know, I know……”

BUT REALLY……..DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

When we choose to not read or listen to the Word daily.

When we choose to not pray.

When we choose to not go to church consistently.

When we choose to remain indulging in sin knowing God said to stop.

When we choose to cut out the fellowship of the saints.

When we choose to speak words of death instead of life.

When we choose to subtract and disobey Jesus in our finances.

WE CHOOSE………OUR HARVEST!

Deut. 30:19, Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!

As a Pastor I sadly have to watch people who were once on fire for Jesus slowly slide away.  They will never be able to deny Christ.  They had supernatural experiences that validate the reality of the Living God.  Their faith was not built on the wisdom of man but upon the power of God.

SLOW…..

SNEAKY…..

OTHER PRIORITIES…..

OTHER LOVES……

OTHER PASSIONS…..

THEN THEY ARE GONE…….

Choose to sow life into your life today!  Be a person who is INTENTIONAL with your life and know that what you sow you will reap.  SOW WITH WISDOM TODAY AND CHOOSE LIFE!

HELP THE CHILDREN TO SUCCEED


Growing-Generations

Deut 6:5-9,  Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!  6-9 Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts.

Get them inside of you and then get them inside your childrenTalk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.

The power of a family is so amazing!

Generations are impacted by how we raise our families – literally.

PRIORITIES ARE ETCHED.

PASSION FOR GOD IS ETCHED.

CONSISTENCIES ARE SOLIDIFIED.

Each family has the power to propel the next 3 generations toward Christ, or away from Jesus.  Sometimes I do not believe we realize the repercussions of our direction with our families.

PARENTS STEER the family.  Whatever DAD & MOM consider the greatest VALUE is the principle that is deposited into the child.

SADLY, most parents no longer consider Jesus, His Word, or His House as the HIGHEST VALUE.  Sports, friends, sleep, other activities have now become equally as valuable, and even to some, more valuable to the parent.  When that is the highest importance to the parent, then that is passed into the bloodstream of the family.  Once that blood is flowing in the family, then it becomes the priorities of the NEXT GENERATION OF THE FAMILY.

Teach the family that NOTHING is as important as Jesus, or His Church!

STRENGTHENING OUR FAMILIES MEANS FOCUS ON THE GREATEST VALUE – JESUS AND HIS HOUSE!

I’M OUT OF THE HABIT!


habits

I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES WE HAVE HEARD THIS EXCUSE!

I am out of the habit of going to church.

I am out of the habit of reading my Bible.

I am out of the habit of talking to Jesus, unless I need something.

THE REAL ISSUE IS NOT BEING OUT OF THE HABIT, BUT ABOUT PRIORITIES OF LIFE.

I can prove it!

Do you change your underwear everyday?

Do you brush your teeth everyday?

Do you eat everyday?

Do you wipe (crass, but so simply true) everyday ?

SO THE REAL ISSUE IS NOT BEING OUT OF THE HABIT, BUT THAT CHRIST IS NO LONGER YOUR PRIORITY AND TRUE LOVE.

The verse for the year has been Matt. 6:33, SEEK YE FIRST…..not second…FIRST.

THERE ARE TIMES IN OUR LIVES WHEN WE MUST SHAKE OURSELVES AND REALIGN OUR TEMPORAL AND ETERNAL PRIORITIES.

If you got out of the habit of wiping after eliminating every day, then it would not take long to stink and to have people recognize that you are out of order…can I hear an amen!

IF JESUS, THE WORD, PRAYER, AND GOING TO OUR KING’S HOUSE FOR SUPPER IS NOT YOUR PRIORITY, THEN YOU SPIRITUALLY STINK AND HEAVEN KNOWS YOU ARE OUT OF ORDER!

This is not rocket science……

SIMPLY – GRAB YOUR LIFE AND GET IT IN ORDER!

When you seek Him first and His righteousness, then all these things shall be added to you!

I’M TOO BUSY!


time

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO READ THE BIBLE!

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO PRAY!

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO GO TO CHURCH!

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO SHARE JESUS!

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO BE IN A MINISTRY!

I DON’T HAVE TIME TO DISCIPLE!

If these words are coming out of your mouth, THEN YOU ARE TOO BUSY.

Matt. 6:33, But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

What these statements are actually saying is, “Jesus, you are not my priority, when I need you or want you I will put you in the lineup of priorities.”

WHEN YOU ARE TOO BUSY TO DO KINGDOM PRINCIPLES THEN YOUR LOVE HAS SHIFTED FROM JESUS TO THE LOVE OF THE WORLD.

Heb. 13:14, For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come.

When the world’s passions are more powerful than Christ’s commission, there is a division within your heart.  You have a divided love.  You “love” Jesus and you “love” the world.  

Mark 3:25, If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

LET’S REPRIORITIZE OUR LIVES AND MAKE KINGDOM BUSINESS A PRIORITY.

IT IS NOT THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME, YOU ARE CHOOSING YOUR PRIORITY OF PASSIONS.

Do not lie to yourself and say Jesus is first if you cannot make Him your priority.  

JESUS IS NOT A GOOD SHARER!

Ex. 20:3, You must not have any other god but me.

Stop FIGHTING God


Acts 9:3-6,  As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Whether by ignorance or by obstinance we need to stop fighting against God’s best for our lives!

Paul was ignorant that the One he was fighting against was actually the Messiah.  He was passionate about HIS THING, but not about the RIGHT THING!  He was religious, he was even working hard for his beliefs, but what he found was what he thought was right, was wrong.

So many of us are passionate about many things, but not passionate about the right thing.  Jesus takes a backseat in our lives while we chase our passions with intensity.

Whether is be fun, fame, financial, or simple foolishness, if Jesus is not number one in our lives then we are not going to do the will of God.  We are fighting against God and cheating ourselves of Father’s best.

Proverbs 14:12, There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

Once Saul, who later was renamed Paul realized he was not fighting for God but against God, he took the same passion and placed it in the correct direction and his impact is still effecting us today.

WHAT HAVE YOU PLACED IN THE POSITION THAT GOD IS SUPPOSED TO HOLD?

STOP FIGHTING THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE, MAKE HIM NUMBER 1 AND WATCH THE BLESSINGS COME INTO YOUR LIFE!

You can identify what the imposter is by where you put your time and your money = core values.  

Be honest with yourself and Christ today.
