Getting Along with One Another

Communion Service


Now all things are of God, the One having reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and having given to us the ministry of reconciliation:
2 Cor. 5:18

The problems of people just needing to get along with one another seem now to be

And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, as also in Christ God forgave you.
Eph. 4:32

So many of us have different positions and opinions: Infant vs choosing baptism;
Always saved vs the free will to walk a your faith.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Matthew 5:9

To as many as who has received Him, He gave the right to be called sons of God.

Study to be silent. Be swift to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry. Because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. —James 1:19-20
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Eph. 2:10

Psalm 23

Try to see the other persons viewpoint.
Even a simple water bottle can appear very different to someone seeing the other side if you can only see one side.
Do you every find yourself getting angry with sinners for sinning? We should recognize that the enemy has blinded their eyes. They can not even recognize what is sin. Would you ask a blind man who many fingers you are holding up? No, of course not. Pray for God to open their eyes first.
Try to walk a mile in someone else’s situation before you condemn their actions.

We have a little diversity in our church. God created diversity, but not division or discord or denigration.
 It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community. I could go on.
This isn’t the first time I have warned you, you know. If you use your freedom this way, you will not inherit God’s kingdom. —Galations 5:19-21 Message Bible
Be careful in friend and mate selection:
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” —1 Corinthians 15:33
Find a good spouse, you find a good life—and even more: the favor of God!
Proverbes 18:22

Remember who you are in all this finger pointing.

We have been given the job of reconciliation.

Temptation Is Not Sin

Someone once said that they can resist every evil except temptation.

The life of Joseph was turned upside down when his brothers sold him into slavery.
He was like a country boy taken to the big city. Potiphar, who purchased Joseph, was the captain of the guard, but Joseph was not discouraged because the Lord was with Joseph.
Gen. 39
The Lord is with you also.
Blessed is the man who shall not walk in the counsel of the wrong, And shall not stand in the path of sinners, And shall not sit in the seat of scoffers, But his delight is in the Torah of יהוה, And he meditates in His Torah day and night. For he shall be as a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That yields its fruit in its season, And whose leaf does not wither, And whatever he does prospers.—Psalm 1
Things were going well for Joseph. Sometimes when things go well, we become more vulnerable to wonder away from our dependence on God.
Potiphars wife was attracted to Joseph, and he refused. “Who could I do such a wicked thing? It would be such a great sin against God.
And after these events it came to be that his master’s wife lifted up her eyes to Yosĕph and said, “Lie with me.” But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Look, my master does not know what is with me in the house, and he has given into my hand all that he has. “No one is greater in this house than I, and he has not withheld whatever from me but you, because you are his wife. And how shall I do this great evil and sin against Elohim?”—Genesis 39:7-9
Joseph tore himself away and ran from the house.
Genesis 39:12
That is how we respond to sin. Run away. Put distance between you and sin.
Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee.
Do whatever it takes to resist and flee temptation.

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.  —James 1:12

Temptation is not sin, choosing to follow it is. Temptation is a call to battle and it could be a clue that you are moving in the right direction.

Joseph know the consequences of sin would be severe. God’s standard are forever regardless of the cultural morays of our time.

All sin is ultimately against God. Jesus was tempted in every way, but without sin.
There is no temptation but that which is common to all of us. You must find a way to escape.
We serve a thrice holy God as Isaiah quoted from the heavenly beings visiting the throne of God.
He will hold us accountable even for every idle word.
Let your love for God be your greatest deterrent  against temptation.

In the book of mysteries the student was asked if he could throw a forest of trees off to a distance away. If you do it when temptation is just a seed, you could throw a forest of sins away.

Truckloads of Grace

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Psalms 103: 2-4

He loads me with Grace.


March 4 next year, I expect we will have a message reminiscing for my last message

I remember back on my days working for UPS

No one wanted to unload the Master Lock truck. The truck full of cheese was a heavy load too.

Diana’s dad drove for UPS


God has a truckload of grace coming your way.

In a time of trouble

Psalm 23 is a form submission to God.

James 4. Submit to God, resist the devil,

It also helps calling your spouse for friend.


In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace 8which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight. —Eph. 1:7-8


Now to Him who is able to do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, —Eph. 3:20


"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this," says the LORD of hosts, "if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. —Malachi 3:10


At Calvary on the cross, God opened up a flood gate of grace, and it has not stopped coming


From His fullness we have all received grace upon grace. —John 1:16

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive an abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! —Romans 5:17

Where sin abounded, there did grace abound much more.

The Law was given so that the trespass would increase; but where sin increased, grace increased all the more, —Rom. 5:20

My God shall supply all your needs according to his riches and glory.


Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you.

His grace delivered you from your PAST! He broke the power of sin in your life. He is willing to wash you clean. Thank Him for that every day.


His grace empowers you for the present—to do His will, in His way, according to His timing.

The apostle Paul had an affliction. He was reminded that God’s strength is made perfect in weakness. Not because we earned it, but because of his great love.

In the words of Aaron Rogers, RELAX. God’s got this.


Elijah defeated the profits of Baal in a miraculous show of God’s strength, then ran off to a cave fearing for his life.


This is not the time to give up. Elijahs’ courage and strength was renewed.

The grace of God is poured out for us too. Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.

Greater than the powers of the world, demons, and spiritual principalities.


There shall be showers of blessing untold. With God, all things are possible.


Surely goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives.

Submit and Resist

Eph. 6

Max Lucado authored a message that inspired todays message.


Joe Kaufman in Holland, Mich posted something on Facebook.

The horribleness of sin is never evident until it is committed.

We saw that in Las Vegas this past week, with 56 dead and 500 injured.


Why does this happen, people ask.


For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Eph 6:12

The devil is not just a symbol of evil, he is a real enemy we contend with.

This truth is spiritually discerned, so most will not understand it.


(You can plausible debunk stories on UFOs, but the same is not true for the reality of the devil)


Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1 Peter 5:8


The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 10:10


You are a target because…

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

John 1


1) Do not dismiss the devil as irrelevant. Do not make yourself the next easy target.


Would you agree that God is Love.

Should we keep the 10 commandments?

Do you agree with the Word of the Bible?

Be warned and wary of the enemy described therein.


Remember that the devil has his minions also working on his behalf.

Eph 6:12


He tempted David, confused Saul, attacked Job.


Even Jesus was tempted. Matt. 4, Matt. 13


Pray daily for protection from the evil one.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matt. 6:13


He knows his days are numbered.

Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea; with great fury the devil has come down to you, knowing he has only a short time.”

Rev. 12:12


and having despoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Col. 2:15


For now evil has some sway, ultimately, God has His way.


Turn to God in prayer.

The devils name means divider. Rejection, division and isolation are evidence of his influence.


Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world.

God is faithful.

1 Cor. 10

Shame on Max Lucado for quoting, “

Resist the devil and he will flee.”

James 4:7 is the verse and we must not forget, “Submit to God resist the devil and he will flee.”

Eph. 6 put on the armor of God


For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2 Cor. 10:4 


When you worship יהוה, Abba Father, you are doing the very same thing, the devil could not bring himself to do.


Romans: The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.


Help us Lord to change our lives by your leading to serve you.

Break the line of sin that has been in my family.


We submit to our Father, God and resist the devil.

Are You Puting God First

The most important question: Are you putting God first in everything?

Is your life primarily about honoring His name?

Here is the tough news, “This life, your life is not about you.”

In a healthy christian life, Jesus is the focus. He gets the most air time.

When we did the vows at my sons wedding, Nathan’s lip began to quiver. He was getting emotional.

His wife was the center of attention, and so it is in western culture. The bride is the center of attention.

The tables will be turned, when Jesus returns for His bride.

Are you putting Christ first in your life? 


Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

1 Cor. 10:21 


And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Col 3:23,24


Just six percent of Great Britain considers themselves to be regular bible readers.

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Eph. 2:10


Remember the sabbath to keep it holy.

Forsake not the assembling together.

Hebrews


And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

Luke 4:16


Luke 11
