HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!


Happy-Birthday-to-me

March 13, 1983 at approximately 11:31am by youth pastor dragged me into the Pastors office.  He sat me down across from the desk and looked me in the eyes and said, “Spencer, you have been playing church long enough, get in or get out!”

I was shocked!

HOW DARE HE TALK TO ME THAT WAY!!

I had grown up in church.  I was in church before the week was out from my escape from the womb.  All my years I remember going to church because our family was so involved.  My dad was the Sunday School superintendent, song leader, board member, and my mom was a teacher as well.  We were always in church!  Every Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday, Thursday and most Fridays something was happening in a church environment.

BUT……

Church does not get you to heaven!

Mom & Dad cannot get you to heaven!

ONLY JESUS!!!!

On this date 34 years ago that youth pastor gave me an ultimatum, “GET IN OR GET OUT”.

Who does he think he is!!!

How dare he talk to me that way!!

IT SAVED MY LIFE…..AT 11:31AM I CONFESSED JESUS AS MY SAVIOR AND HAVE NEVER TURNED BACK.  

I have stumbled a few times, but I have never gone back to the devil’s side.

WHAT WAS YOUR NEW BIRTH DATE?

HOW AND WHO DID JESUS SEND INTO YOUR LIFE THAT BROUGHT YOU TO A DECISION?

SHARE YOUR SALVATION WITH SOMEONE TODAY!!!

John 3:3, Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Eph 2:8-9,  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Rev. 12:11a, And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony.

FREE TO SIN!


why

FREE-WILL IS THE BEST, WORST THING THAT JESUS HAS EVER DONE FOR US!

The Lord (Owner) created us with FREE-WILL so we could choose to love Him or choose to reject Him.  

Can you imagine making people love you?

Can you imagine not giving a person the choice to marry you (they still do arranged marriages in the world)?

John 3:16 is simply because the Father desired us to be saved to the New Covenant and the pinnacle of that is our RELATIONSHIP with Him.

Matt. 27:51, And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.

THE MOMENT JESUS, THE LAMB SACRIFICE DIED THE HOLY OF HOLIES VEIL WAS TORN IN TWO.  Up to this point only one person could go into the presence of the Lord and only once a year.  When Jesus the Lamb gave Himself for our sins and the temple vail was torn it opened up for us that opportunity to come into His presence covered by the sacrifice whenever we desire as sons and daughters.

SO WHY NOT SIN, JESUS HAS TO FORGIVE US?

Rom. 6:1, What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?

WHEN SIN IS EASY FOR US AFTER WE HAVE ASKED JESUS TO BE OUR SAVIOR, FRIEND, MEDIATOR, IT SHOWS WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT THIS IS A RELATIONSHIP AND NOT A RELIGION.

WE HAVE THE FREE-WILL TO SIN, BUT WE CHOOSE NOT TO SIN, NOT BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY BUT BECAUSE WE DO NOT WANT TO HURT THE ONE WHO PAID SUCH A MASSIVE PRICE TO OBTAIN OUR RELATIONSHIP.

It is not that you cannot…….

The real question is, “WHY WOULD YOU?”

YOUR ARE MATURE? COME ON NOW!


maturity

SO MANY BELIEVERS ACTUALLY THINK THEY ARE MATURE IN THE GOSPEL BECAUSE OF HOW MANY YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN SAVED!

Foolishness!

Maturity has nothing to do with the amount of years you have gone to church, been saved, or your natural age.

MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A PRODUCER!

MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A RESTORER!

MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A SUPPORTER!

MATURITY IS A PLACE IN THE SPIRIT THAT SAYS YOU ARE A WORKER!

You once served the King, now you just take and give nothing.  You are sliding into Spiritual Alzheimers!

HERE IS ONE PIECE OF EVIDENCE THAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY MATURE IN THE SPIRIT.

Gal. 6:1, Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right andrestore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also. AMP

Here is a litmus test for your spiritual maturity.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU RESTORED SOMEONE OR DISCIPLED SOMEONE?

If you are not reaching out and restoring those who are struggling and being entangled again by sin then, YOU ARE NOT MATURE!

If you are not discipling someone.  Taking the time to walk them from babyhood to adulthood (maturity), then YOU ARE NOT MATURE!

JESUS NEEDS SOME MATURE SAINTS WHO WILL BUILD HIS KINGDOM.  

Find someone this week who is slipping away from the Savior and restore them.

Lead someone to Jesus and then take the responsibility to disciple them.  That takes work, commitment and maturity!

LET’S GROW UP AND FULFILL THE CALL OF GOD IN MATURITY.

Save You From YOURSELF!


cant_save_yourself

Matt. 1:21, And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.

The thought that I do not need Jesus is self-deceptive and delusional.  The idea that we do not need the Savior demands us to be our own savior, which also includes our payment for our own sin.

WE HAVE ALL SINNED….

Rom. 3:23, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

1 John 1:8, If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Since we have all sinned, then we have to ask ourselves the consequence of sin.  There is always a consequences to breaking the law.

Rom. 6:23a, For the wages of sin is death…

NOT PHYSICAL DEATH ONLY, BUT SPIRITUAL DEATH, ETERNAL DEATH.

If we have to pay for our own sins, and yet we are not a perfect sacrifice then that means we are damned for sure.

BUT GOD!

John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Jesus so loved us that He chose to pay for our sins!  He chose to be condemned for something He did not do.  He chose to die as a perfect sacrifice so you and I do not have to die for our own sins.

NO GREATER LOVE!

The crazy part is that many have heard the Gospel truth, yet still say that they are all good…..

WHEN WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE FREE SACRIFICE AND WE HAVE TO PAY FOR OUR OWN SINS, THEN THAT MEANS WE ARE CHOOSING ETERNAL DAMNATION FOR OURSELVES.  

That is crazy!

HE PAID IT ALL SO WE DO NOT HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING!  ACCEPT HIS FREE GIFT TODAY!

We LOVE You JESUS!


Jesus-The-King

Today, this morning, is a great time to get off the speeding train and take a moment and tell Jesus that you love Him.

TOO SIMPLE?

Isn’t this what salvation is all about?

WE NOW HAVE THE ABILITY THROUGH JESUS TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD HIMSELF.

John 4:24,  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

Matt 2:11, And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Matt 14:33,  Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”

JESUS, TODAY WE WORSHIP YOU!

WE LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR LOVING US!

THANK YOU THAT WHEN WE WERE STILL SINNERS YOU DIED FOR US!

THANK YOU THAT WHEN WE ASKED YOU INTO OUR LIVES YOU CLEANSED US FROM OUR SIN.

THANK YOU THAT YOU WERE WILLING TO PAY SUCH A MASSIVE PRICE SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME!

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS IN MY LIFE.

THANK YOU THAT YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME OR FORSAKE ME.

YOU ARE THE KING!

YOU ARE MY SAVIOR!

YOU ARE MY HEALER!

YOU ARE MY FRIEND!

I LOVE YOU JESUS!

Let’s say it out loud together, “I LOVE YOU JESUS.”

NO


WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF JESUS TOLD YOU TO GIVE UP SOMETHING YOU LIKE?

What if He told you not to hang out with a certain person, or date a certain person, or drink alcohol, or swear, or go a specific movie, or stop going to the bar?

What if He told you to quit your sport, lay down your instrument, or simply to do something for Him?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

WOULD YOU OBEY JESUS?

WOULD YOU YIELD TO JESUS?

WHAT WOULD YOUR REACTION BE?

1 Sam. 15:22, But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.

Obeying the Lord is a choice.  Many people want to obey Jesus only to the place of salvation.

THEY WANT JESUS TO BE THEIR SAVIOR, BUT DO NOT WANT HIM TO BE THEIR LORD.

1 Cor. 6:19-20,  Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

IF JESUS TOLD YOU “NO” TO SOMETHING WOULD YOU OBEY HIM?

If you will not obey Him, ask yourself why.

If He gives clear direction and you refuse His direction, then we must ask ourselves WHY?

I SUBMIT TO YOU!

John 14:15, If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.

OBEYING JESUS PRODUCES AMAZING RESULTS.  HE ONLY HAS THE BEST FOR YOU!  OBEDIENCE MEANS LOVE!
