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.

START BUT NEVER FINISH


finish-the-race

IN MY MORNING PRAYER TIME I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR ALL THOSE WHO STARTED THIS WALK WITH JESUS AND HAVE SIMPLY WALKED AWAY…..

One of the saddest things as a Pastor is watching people who had a powerful experience with Jesus simply walk away and not finish the race.

When I ponder what people have traded Jesus for, it just makes my heart break.  I have watched people trade Jesus for money, someone to lay in bed with, sleep, sports, offenses, laziness, the list is too long to pen……and it breaks the heart of the Father in Heaven.

There is no question that life seems to throw us curve balls and at times even chucks rocks at us, but there is only one who is consistent in our lives and that is Jesus.  Everything else is shifting and changing, even the people in our lives.  He is the only stable.

So why, if Jesus has the only stability people need, do they trade Him away first?

THERE IS NOTHING ON THIS FOOLISH PLANET THAT IS WORTH SELLING YOUR BIRTHRIGHT FOR.

PLEASE DO YOUR PASTOR A FAVOR TODAY……

PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR TODAY……

Ask yourself what you have placed before Jesus and then go and tear down that idol.  Kick that god to the side and embrace the ONLY ONE WHO HAS EVER LOVED YOU UNCONDITIONALLY – His name is Jesus!!

COME ON FINISH THE RACE….CROSS THE FINISH LINE….NO EXCUSES….FOLLOW THROUGH!!

2 Tim. 4:7, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.

I CHOOSE YOU!


choose

TODAY IS A NEW DAY AND WE HAVE TO CONSCIOUSLY MAKE A CHOICE ON WHO WE WILL LOVE MOST OF ALL!

I choose Jesus over my wife.

I choose Jesus over my children.

I choose Jesus over my Sophia (granddaughter).

I choose Jesus over my friends.

I choose Jesus over sin.

I choose Jesus over the world.

I choose Jesus over my selfish desires.

I choose Jesus over money.

I choose Jesus over my career.

I choose Jesus over my calling.

I choose Jesus over my sports.

I choose Jesus over acceptance from the crowd.

I choose Jesus over any liquid.

I choose Jesus over my Facebook, computer, and television.

I CHOOSE JESUS OVER EVERYTHING THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER!

This is a decision that needs to be made daily, it is not a one-time decision.

Rom. 12:1, Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship. AMP

Josh 24:15, And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  ESV

TODAY WHO DO YOU CHOOSE?

WE WILL EACH COME TO A CROSSROADS TODAY WITH THIS CHOICE, AND WE ARE THE DECISION MAKERS……NOT GOD!

WHO WILL YOU CHOOSE TODAY?

GOOD Doesn’t Always Mean GOD!


Good and Bad - Business Concept

MANY TIMES WE LOOK AT THE GOOD THINGS AND THINK BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD THAT IT MUST BE A GOD THING…….

NOPE!!!!

Good does not always mean God.

The enemy and even our flesh can be tempted to do things that are not EVIL yet, ARE NOT GOD.

THE WORD IS OUR GUIDE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR DIRECTOR.

Sports are not bad…….BUT PEOPLE CHOOSE SPORTS OVER OBEYING GOD IN GOING TO CHURCH.

Money isn’t evil……..BUT PEOPLE WILL TRADE CHRIST FOR $1 MORE PER HOUR AND SURRENDER MINISTRY AND BIBLE STUDY.

Sunshine isn’t bad…….BUT PEOPLE DISOBEY GOD FOR THE SUN ALL THE TIME.

Relationships are not bad……BUT PEOPLE TRADE JESUS FOR FAMILY AND LOVE ALL THE TIME.

Business is not bad……BUT WHEN IT TAKES CHRIST FROM THE #1 POSITION IN YOUR LIFE IT BECOMES EVIL.

The list is never ending…..BUT THE TRUTH STANDS FIRM!

Ps. 119:11, I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Ps. 119:160, The very essence of your words is truth; all your just regulations will stand forever.

John 17:17, Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.

WE MUST TAKE EVERYTHING WE DO AND MEASURE IT FROM THE WORD OF GOD.  GOOD THINGS THAT DRAW AWAY FROM THE PRINCIPLES OF THE WORD ARE QUIETLY EVIL.

What if it is not drawing me away from obedience?

THEN ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR HIS DIRECTION CONCERNING THE GOOD THING.

Rom. 8:14, For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED THINKING THAT GOOD IS ALWAYS GOD!

THE GOD THING WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD, BUT IT WILL ALWAYS BE ESTABLISHED ON THE WORD OF TRUTH.

What LOVE is NOT! Pt. 1


Love takes on many forms when you talk about it because so many have a different idea of what REAL LOVE really is.  

1 Cor. 13:1-3, Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

The school of “what love really is” has come for many through the TV, movies, music, but not from the MASTER OF LOVE – Jesus!

The world’s concept of love is really what is termed, LIKE!

We LOVE cheesecake (when you eat too much and it makes you sick…you now hate cheesecake).

We LOVE shoes (come on ladies).

We LOVE puppies (until they poop all over your floor and choose the shoes you love).

We LOVE sports (until the team so stinks we finally hate them).

I fell in LOVE.

I fell out of LOVE.

LOVE HAS BECOME A CLICHÉ, NOT A REALITE’ (Spencerism)

Can you imagine if God had the fickle, self-absorbed love of humanity as His measuring stick?

WE HAVE STARTED “LOVING” THINGS…AND STOPPED LOVING PEOPLE.

The reason?  Because things cannot hurt us!  They are distant and controllable. 

REAL LOVE IS NOT THINGS.

TRUE LOVE?

We will finish this tomorrow……
