SERMON:

“What Did Jesus Tell Us to Do?”

“Young Man asks Homeless Man for Bucket”
By London Bangla TV

“Homeless Drug Addict vs. Homeless Father”
By Coby Persin


Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the Lord of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the Lord'S heave offering to Aaron the priest.

When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell all that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

Mark 8:34 (KJV)
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come
after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mark 10:21 (KJV)
Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

Luke 18:12 (KJV)
I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Luke 18:22 (KJV)
Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

2 Corinthians 9:7 (New American Standard)
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

Mark 12:42-44King James Version (KJV)

42 “And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.”

THIS IS THE WORD OF GOD. AMEN.

DISCUSSION:

Before God, each one of us needs to decide what “kind” of Christian we are going to be. Yes, in the beginning, we start off as “baby Christians” and know very little about the laws of the Old Testament vs the grace of God of the New Testament.

As we grow up though, in the Word of God, we are responsible for the teachings that we learn. And we are responsible to actually learn the Word of God, since that is our Sword of the Spirit, our only offensive weapon against the evil spiritual forces that we fight.

God orders us to pay 10% of our income, the first and the best 10% of the oils and the vines of the Old Testament, as a sacrifice to the priests of then. Christ reinforced the intention behind giving, to give out of cheerfulness, not out of obligation or for others to see, but for God to know and to cherish us as we strive to please Him. Lord, bless us in our tithes and offerings, so that we may bless others.

I joke and say that lots of Christians go to church while watching their watches, to make sure they are “outa there!” in exactly one hour. I know this because I used to be this way, and so did lots of my friends. And their parents.

And then church would be over, and you know what?

It was a “Mad Dash” and “Each Car to Defend Itself” in the silly PARKING LOT just less than 5 minutes after service ended. And it was un.be.lieve.able to hear horns honking, people screaming at one another, and cars racing to be the next in line. No one wanted to let the red van back out, because no one wanted to be the behind a van and be ‘blinded.’ What happened to God in 5 minutes?

Is God just for the building?

Is God just for an hour?

Is God in your house when all the doors are closed?

Is Christ just there for forgiveness, when we need him? Or do we have a daily, constant relationship with him to count on?

Don’t you get aggravated when that same friend only calls you on the phone when she or he needs something from you?

“Oh, it’s Margaret calling,” you think. “She only calls when she wants something.”

Do you want to be “one of those people” to God? Or do you want to be “different?”

In this scenario, “different” is really “normal.” Mature Christians thank God for every day in the morning, thank Him for food at breakfast, and thank Him and Praise him despite all the storms in life, all day and all night long. Why?

Because mature Christians KNOW God.

They trust Him. They have a relationship with Him. They rely on him with an unwavering faith that no one can talk them out of... Christ really is their Cornerstone, their foundation of spirituality.

This video is definitely “tongue-in-cheek,” but it gets my point across:

“Thrift Shop – Christian Remix ©
By Harrison Hughes

To be a good, deserving Christian, one does not follow a mathematical formula as in 1 + 1 + 1 = 3. What does one do?

One prays incessantly for others, for church leaders, for other Christians, AND without ceasing AND at the most, one sells everything and gives to the poor.

P.S. Have you been praying for me? I do need your prayers:

From the church to a church leader: Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

As intercession for other Christians: For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

To God: Pray without ceasing.

On behalf of others: I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;

Do you long to know God more?

Who do you pray for?

When someone is dying of cancer on Facebook, are you one of those people that simply say, “Praying?” Or do you actually PRAY a prayer for them in the Comment? Think about it.  These are the fine shades of gray we need to see.

Has Christ turned your darkness into purest white snow? Do you realize how Jesus paid it all for you and me? Really?

He had YOUR heart and soul in his hand and what did he do with it? He saved you! He set you free! Free to love Him or not love Him. THAT’s how much He wants the LOVE to come from YOU. He thinks you are so beautiful, and He wants you as His Bride.

INVITATION AND RENEWAL PRAYER: If you have not yet said this prayer to accept Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior, you can do so now, TO BE BORN AGAIN:

“Lord, I have not accepted You fully into my heart, or I did once long ago, and have strayed. I ask that you forgive my sins, enter my heart, and stay with me forevermore as my Personal Savior. I thank you that by grace alone, and your death on the cross, I can enter Heaven to be together with you.”

If you have said this prayer in earnest, please stay after the service for Counsel and make sure we get a Mentor for you, so that we can disciple you from a ‘baby’ Christian to a ‘fully-grown’ Christian who is then able to lead. We then go out to all ends of the earth, spreading the Gospel or supporting those that do so. Amen!

Look at this young girl and her deep love for Christ. What does she want to do with her love for God?

She wants to sing and write praises to Him! She wants to share Him with you! She wants to spread The Word! See:

*******************
PREPARATION FOR HOLY COMMUNION: Until I studied it myself, I did not realize how seriously God judges us for taking Holy Communion. It is Holy. We are not to take it if we are sinning, or it is blasphemy against yourself, and the Lord.

I encourage you not to take Holy Communion until after watching my short version (31 min) of my Bible Study on it: https://youtu.be/RIW44PDgM6w and the Sermon version at: https://youtu.be/cGExxw8gzdk

THEN go get your bread and wine, so we remember Christ’s death, as He instructed us to do.

Again, please do NOT take HOLY Communion until you have seen my video, for I do not wish to lead anyone to sin.
********************
SAY “THE LORD’S PRAYER”, AS CHRIST TAUGHT US TO PRAY:
Let us take Holy Communion together, after saying the Our Father, as Jesus told us to pray together:

THE OUR FATHER
Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory.
Forever and ever. Amen.

*********************
TOGETHER WE PARTAKE IN HOLY COMMUNION:
We proceed with Holy Communion, in Remembrance of Christ’s death:

TAKING THE BODY: We break off the bread, eat it as His Body, and remember His death for us. Amen. As we chew it and swallow it, it cleanses our bodies and our souls. (Eat the bread.)

TAKING THE BLOOD: We drink the wine that signifies His blood, for the shedding of all sins, as Christ died and took our place for us on The Cross. (Drink the wine.)

You may sit or kneel after taking Holy Communion, remembering Christ’s death for you. Christ does not want us to forget it.

CLOSING PRAYER BY KIRSTIE: Dear Lord, we come to you at this hour of need to ask you to make a way when we see no way.

We ask you Lord guide and hold us closely to your side. Please give us love, strength and courage for each new day. We ask you to lead us in your steps to the doors of Heaven when we take our last breath.

We ask you, Lord to send your Angels to watch over our loved ones when we come into your arms to be by your side. Let our souls find peace of mind, let our hearts beat for you Lord. We lift our heads and arms up high to Worship you Lord. In Jesus’ Name We Pray, Amen!

DISMISSAL: You are dismissed. Go in love and peace to spread The Word unto all nations, so that all can come to know the glory and power and love of God.

Share your blessings, so that God may yet bless you again! You’re the hope and faith that spreads to complete The Great Commission! Amen.


DISMISSAL SONG:

“Your Love Never Fails”
By Jesus Culture

“I Can Only Imagine”
MercyMe


To be “born again,” please note the PLAN OF SALVATION:

1.   All have sinned. (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8)

2.   There is a penalty for sin (Romans 6:23; John 3:18)

3.   You cannot save yourself (Titus 3:5; James 2:10)

4.   Salvation has been provided (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; John 14:6)

5.   The conditions are simple:  A. Repent (Luke 13:3); B Confess (1 John 1:9; Romans 10:9); C. Believe (Acts 16:31)

6.   Now is your time for a Decision (Joshua 24:15; 2 Corinth 6:2)


Do you repent for your sins?

Do you confess your sins to the Lord?

Do you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, into your heart?

If you answer “yes” to all these questions, you are now a Born Again Christian! We love you! Welcome to the body of Christ! Confess it with your mouth, or write it here! You must say it out loud! Praise the Lord!

You may Go now, and Spread the Word of God to all the Ends of the Earth!
