|some times we must take a good look at ourselves... to see what path we are walking on in life.. we must find God to find ourselves... we must admit our weak frail humaness... we cannot fix ourselves but God can...|
First of all let me say how good it is to be behind this alter of God , and to be with you God fearing folks. Today I would like to preach if the lord would allow me to be his mouth peace, let me tell your first hand. I am not here to make any glory for myself or to put on a show for you, but to give you what God would have for you to hear on this day, did you know that some folks that go to church ever Sunday and set in the same seats that they are use to setting in and never listen to the sermon, they are just setting their paying hardly any attention ever , you could call one of them up and hour later after the worship service and ask them what the preacher preached about and they would not have a clue, Let us see what such persons would be that way, answer is this they are not interested in but one thing and that is just being in church,, to be accounted in the number of the Christian is one thing , but being in church listening is what God would require, How can we grow less we listen? Does a child learn in school if he not listen to what the teacher is saying, and trying to get some learning across to the child. When we pray our prayers to God would we want God to listen and hear our request,? what if God was like some of the humans of today, who does not listen but sets in seat of church not interested enough to even listen to the preacher who if is a real called man of God would sure not want to waste his time and words for people who were just there for all the wrong reason .. We find ourselves bored with church , sin has got into our lives, and then our interest in God is gone from us... how can one fix this in his or her life, when a bored like feeling come over a person something is wrong, that person, certainly noting ever gets wrong with God .. These modern times men and woman are not humble , and being humble is what God wants from his children, did you ever notice a young child that is humble , how he is so meek . He or she is not forward or sassy , but of a humble nature, when God see humbleness in people he always exalts that person.. But if a man or woman be proud they are abased ‘ that old saying pride comes before a fall, this surely applies to all that fall into pride.. I being a Kentucky minister who was called of God, and I know that without God I am noting,. To be real honest not any one deserves anything from God ...for we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God.. How can we see anything within our person that would be pleasing to God? When a person takes a real look at themselves ..they will find they have many problems , many faults , many things in their lives that are against the will of God for their lives...most of my ministry I have been rejected made fun of .. Put down by some so called preachers , who put themselves above me , because of their college bible school training. Country called preachers are not so often even recognized as being preacher and called of God.. If anyone had a reason to hate some of them I would , but I don't for the lord will not allow me to be that low , I know who I am and what I am . God showed me threw his holy word.. I don't and want allow myself to be hater of those that probably despise me , the only thing I have to prove is that God loves you .. I know what I am and can tell you that God is real and he really loves us all... God don't look at how much smarts a person has in education , or how rich folks is , and how high in society a person is... God is not at all interested in men wealth or social perspective... God looks at a man or woman hearts, he want to see humbleness . Caring.. He wants us to love one another, and to forgive each other of our trespasses.. Is that too much to ask us to do? I think not!! If you are reading this it is not just by chance but by the will of God or you would never had stumbled on this in the first place.. Why has folks got so proud at heart, where is the old path of worshipers ,? what has become of true fellowship and worship? What has happen to man that he is far from God,? Our nation slogan is( in God we trust.). Its on our money .. And the atheist will have that removed before its over with. Have we got so self centered that we have left God out of our lives , what has happen to so many that don't care for noting anymore, ?I know that they are some that walk in the old path of the lords commandment. They have committed their lives to the lord .. They don't walk after the world and worldly things, Can people change from bad to good ? Yes by letting go of themselves and taking the hand of God that he might lead to a wonderful spirit filled peaceful joyful life. Believe it or not some folks in this life are humble some are caring , some see themselves as what they are frail human beings in need of God grace and help.. If you're a person that want God to show you what your really are , just ask God and he will hear your prayer and show you who you really are, .. If you would be so kind to email me I would be thankful to anyone that might of got a blessing from my words from my heart.( Sin will keep you from God ), and (the Bible will keep you from sin)... give me and email and say hello to a old country preacher at McQueen@mail.com Tweet
