    Don’t Worry, Be Thankful
    Series: 2020

    2020

    For many people it has become synonymous with worry

    There has been plenty to worry about this year right?

    Pandemic, a word we all wish we could forget

    Record number of Hurricanes, we all learned some Greek this year

    Civil unrest, most of us thought this couldn’t happen like it did.

    Election fatigue, everyone is there right?

    Worry seems to have come standard with this year model.

    Matt 6:25-34

    This entire passage is Jesus speaking and the first thing He says is don’t worry.

    That seems easy to say and very hard to do. How can I not worry.

    Jesus says do not worry because your Heavenly Father will take care of you.

    How do we know that?

    Vs 26-30

    Jesus says God feeds the birds and clothes the flowers so He will take care of you.

    In other words in order to not worry we have to be thankful

    If you are sitting here today you have much to be thankful for!

    During this season of Thanksgiving did you pause and thank God for the blessings?

    We have so much to be thankful for because as bad as things are……

    They could be even worse!

    In looking around and surveying what we have to be thankful for…..

    We begin to seek Him and trust Him

    Vs 31-33

    Do not worry but seek first the Kingdom of God

    When we seek Him first meaning this becomes the greatest priority

    All these things will be added unto you

    What things, what you eat, what you drink, what you wear

    In other words all of life’s needs will be taken care of

    Don’t worry, be thankful and Seek God First

    Look at vs 34

    This passage closes showing us that worry isn’t productive

    Each day has enough trouble of it’s own!

    There is only one way for us to deal with this and that is to trust God

    Do you know the only one that can take care of you?

    The Response For Hard Times
    Series: 2020

    Has anyone out there been going through hard times lately?

    Dumb question it’s 2020 after all

    As this terrible horrible no good very bad year comes to a close

    It seems to be going out as hard as it has been the whole year

    So how do we respond to something like this

    The real answer is

    We Worship!!

    Yes Really!!

    1 Chronicles 16:8-11

    The Proper response when we are going through hard times is to Worship our Lord

    Exodus 20:1-2

    If we allow the hard times to take number 1 in our life we make it a god

    Think about this when you are pouring your heart out is worship

    It is impossible to dwell on the hard times

    In 1 Chronicles why were they so over-joyed?

    The ark of God was coming there meaning God was with them

    Today God resides with every believer through the Holy Spirit

    This fact alone should fill us with true joy

    Hard times are very hard

    Look at how David and the city responded to God being with them

    They were responding with every ounce of joy they had, that’s true Worship!

    They had been going through a war with the Philistines so hard times a plenty

    Satan tries to force us to dwell on the hard times and keep us from God

    Worship doesn’t just take you mind off things for a little while

    People use all types of substances to take their mind off their troubles

    When that high or drunk or whatever is over the trouble is usually compounded

    When you worship you find the strength to do all things through Christ

    Worship is what we were designed for.

    Now the question is can you worship?

    Not if you do not know Jesus

    Today give you heart to Jesus and know what true worship is!!

    Never Alone
    Series: 2020
    Last week, Bro. Tim talked about the church submitting to the Father Our biggest problem today is trying to be a church apart from the Father When we do things alone, they will never be the will of God
    John 15:1-5 NASB
    "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
    "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.
    "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
    "Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. 
    "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."
     
    I AM the true vine
    My Father is the vine dresser When we talk about this, understand that a branch is a product of the vine The sole responsibility of the branch is to bear fruit If the branch isn’t bearing much, then pruning it helps it to bear more fruit Removing dead branches helps the vine grow stronger When we pull away and go it alone, we will not survive Never Alone! We are not designed to be apart from the vine
    Vs 4
    Abide in ME! This is the proper relationship and the only one that works
    Vs 5
    I AM the vine. You are the branches Understanding our place helps us to thrive in it He who abides in me In this type of relationship, we thrive because we are not alone Apart from ME you can do NOTHING If the church today is going to make a difference in the world, We must never be alone but always abide in Him Perhaps you realize today that you are apart from Him Are you ready to be grafted onto the vine?

    The Church And Home
    Series: 2020
    Ephesians 5:21-27 KJV
    "Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish."

    Commander And Chief
    Series: 2020

    The Presidential election is Tuesday; so please VOTE!

    People have become very passionate about elections and winners and losers

    Some people are threatening to leave the country if their candidate loses

    There have been reports of people becoming physically ill

    The phrase “He’s not my President!” rings out all over the place

    Look with me to Romans 13:1
    "Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God." NASB

    This means that whoever is elected is placed there by God

    "Surely God did not intend for that person to be President!"

    There is no authority except from God and those that exist are established by God

    So understand this, whoever becomes the next President, God placed them there

    We call the President the "Commander in Chief"

    But God is the "Commander and Chief"

    He has the authority and He is the leader

    Isaiah 43:13
    "Even from eternity I am He, And there is none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?"
     

    Daniel 4:35

    "All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, But He does according to His will in the host of heaven And among the inhabitants of earth; And no one can ward off His hand Or say to Him, `What have You done?'"
     
    Matthew 28:18
    "And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth."
     
    You see God is the Commander and Chief

    He gave all authority to Jesus, who intercedes on our behalf

    This is still "One Nation Under God" and believers must act like it

    If our Nation doesn’t humble themselves and pray

    Then how can we be a Godly Nation

    Believers, your duty is to vote on Tuesday

    But, it is also to lift up the President that God appoints in prayer daily

    How is that possible if you don’t personally know the one with all authority?

    The Commander and Chief gave all authority to Jesus

    Jesus stands with his nail scarred hands calling you to Him today

    Don’t be consumed by the next 4 years! Instead, are you ready for Eternity?

    Refined By Fire
    Series: 2020

    Gold is refined by heating to the point that the impurities rise to the surface

    In Old Testament days, fire was used to purify

    The refining process now combines heat and pressure

    While being intense, this process can reach a 99.99% purity level

    "In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls."

    For a little while

    If necessary

    Proof of your faith

    Results in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ

    You have not seen Him but you Love Him

    You do not currently see Him but you believe in Him

    Rejoice with joy inexpressible

    Full of Glory

    Outcome of your faith

    Salvation of your soul

    You see, every trial you go through makes you a little purer

    This is the sanctification process, and it will continue until glorification

    The question is, "do you believe in Him?" and "do you Love Him?"

    Series: 2020

    Do you ever find yourself wondering how long the darkness can continue?

    Seasonal

    Affective

    Disorder

    Darkness has a negative effect on people

    We talk over and over about how bad 2020 has been

    The reality is that the darkness has been creeping in for a very long time

    Will the darkness ever end?

    Micah 7:2 NASB

    "The godly person has perished from the land, And there is no upright person among men.  All of them lie in wait for bloodshed; Each of them hunts the other with a net."

    This one verse seems to capture the feeling of our world today

    The world is trying to make us believe that the darkness is overcoming

    Anger and Hate are the normal emotions we should all embrace

    Micah looked at the world around him and it was bleak

    Vs 3-6

    " Concerning evil, both hands do it well. The prince asks, also the judge, for a bribe, And a great man speaks the desire of his soul;  So they weave it together.

    The best of them is like a briar, The most upright like a thorn hedge. The day when you post your watchmen, Your punishment will come. Then their confusion will occur.

    Do not trust in a neighbor; Do not have confidence in a friend. From her who lies in your bosom Guard your lips.

    For son treats father contemptuously, Daughter rises up against her mother, Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;  A man's enemies are the men of his own household."

    Among all the darkness, one thing remains

    Hope

    Micah has hope!  vs 7

    " But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me."

    I will watch EXPECTANTLY for the LORD

    He isn’t making some futile effort. He knows the Lord will answer

    He expects to see results. He has hope!

    He waits for the God of my salvation

    My God will hear me!

    Do not be overwhelmed with the darkness, instead call on God

    Expect to hear from Him

    And wait with Hope

    The Hope of Salvation

    Jesus

    Do you know that Hope today?

    It is the only way out of the darkness.
