Do What You Have To Do – Worship Even When Others Don’t

DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DODo What You Have To Do – Worship Even When Others Don’t

Memory Verse: Psalm 122:1

Life Application: We should delight at opportunities to join with others in worshipping God.

Bible Text:

Matthew 15:9

Luke 7:37-38

Psalm 122:1

Psalm 9:1-2

1 Chronicles 16:29

Psalm 95:1-6

     When the woman with the alabaster box left her house to go to the home of the Pharisee, she went with one thing in mind. To worship the King, Jesus Christ. She desired to worship Him because of the gratitude in her heart for His acceptance and forgiveness. As she left her home and walked toward Simon’s house, did she think, even for one moment, that she would wash his feet with her tears and dry them with her hair? Did it ever occur to her that she would be the only one gathered there to worship Jesus?

All across America people gather each week for their Sunday service. Some of the people gather there with the expressed purpose of worshiping the Lord. Others are like the Pharisees. They gather for a variety of reasons, but the wrong reasons.

Matthew 15:9  NKJV     “These people draw near to Me with their mouth,

And honor Me with their lips,

But their heart is far from Me.

And in vain they worship Me,

Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

     As the woman entered the house where Jesus was what she saw grieved her and cut to her heart. There sat Jesus, the King, with His needs not met. She knew their customs and she knew that His feet should have been washed. But there He sat at the table with unclean feet. He had not had His needs ministered to. Tears began to fill her eyes at the thought of her King not receiving the respect that He was due. She decided to do whatever she had to do to see that Jesus’ needs were met.

Luke 7:37-38  NKJV     “And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.”

     There may be times that you are in a service and you sense that the Lord has not been ministered to. Like the woman, your eyes may fill with tears as your heart seems to break.

Psalm 122:1  NKJV     “I was glad when they said to me,

‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.’ ”

     We should delight at the prospect of worshiping God . As we prepare to go to the house of the Lord, we must purpose in our heart that we will worship the Lord even if no one else does.  Like the woman, we must do whatever we have to do in order to see our Lord and King’s needs are met.

Psalm 9:1-2  NKJV     “I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart;

I will tell of Your marvelous works.

I will be glad and rejoice in You;

I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.”

1 Chronicles 16:29  NKJV     “Give to the Lord the glory due His name;

Bring an offering, and come before Him.

Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!”

Psalm 95:1-6  NKJV     “Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!

Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;

Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms

For the Lord is the great God,

And the great King above all gods.

In His hand are the deep places of the earth;

The heights of the hills are His also.

The sea is His, for He made it;

And His hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.”

Deceptions Of The Devil – Innocent Fun or Unaware Paganism?

DECEPTIONS OF THE DEVIL     Deceptions Of The Devil – Innocent Fun or Unaware Paganism?

 

 

Memory Verse: Ephesians 5:11

Life Application: Believers are not to fellowship with darkness.

Bible Text:

Ephesians 5:11

Romans 12:2

2 Thessalonians 5:21

Romans 12:2

Deuteronomy 18:9-14

     There are many feasts and festivals in the Bible. Each one presents a wonderful truth about God and Jesus Christ, our soon coming King. The enemy has always sought to turn people away from God. One way of doing that, is by counterfeiting the things of God.

When we are desperate for more of the Lord’s presence in our lives we can not hold on to the ways of the world. Including the world’s holidays and celebrations that have pagan roots and ties. Many of the world’s celebrations (holidays, events) are soulish. Many have evil or sinful roots. Many

glorify evil and ungodliness. Are we participating in innocent fun, or are we really like the Israelites, falling into paganism unaware of what is happing to us?

Unaware: not aware; unconscious; without thought; unawares.

Unawares: without being expected; by surprise; without knowing.

     God tells us in His Word, the Bible, that we should not have any fellowship with the darkness.

Ephesians 5:11  NKJV     “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them”

     Believers are not to fellowship with darkness. Fellowship means a sharing of common interests, goals, experiences, or views. It can also mean  a group of people who share common interests, goals, experiences, or views. They  (believers) are instructed to be different than the world. We can be in this world and not of this world. We must not allow the world and it’s standards to rule us. A Christian must not set themselves in agreement with the practices, standards, conduct or worship of the world.

Romans 12:2  NKJV     “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”   

     As Christians we should be careful about participating in the things of the world. Each person should seriously read the Word of God and pray as to what they will  participate in.

2 Thessalonians 5:21  NKJV     “Test all things; hold fast what is good.”

     In Romans, we are told not to be like the world, and not to let the world set the standards for our lives.

Romans 12:2  NKJV     “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”

     God has never changed His mind about how He feels about evil. According to Deuteronomy 18:9-14,evil and the things associated with it are an abomination to God.

Deuteronomy 18:9-14  NKJV     “When you come into the land which the Lord you God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord you God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not appointed such for you.”

     Abomination means something that arouses strong disgust. If God has brought you out of Egypt into a new land ( if you have accepted the gift of salvation / if you are saved), you have no part in participating in the things that are an abomination to God. If you are a child of God, He has not appointed you to participate in evil.

Review

1. The enemy has always sought to turn people ________________  from God.

2. When we are desperate for more of the Lord’s _____________________   in our lives we can not hold on to the ways of the world.

3. Many of the world’s holidays and celebrations that have _________________   ____________  and ties – they glorify evil and ungodliness.

Abraham

ABRAHAMAbraham

Memory Verse: Genesis 15:5

Life Application: God is faithful to fulfill His promises.

Bible Text:

Genesis 15:5

Genesis 12:1-3

Genesis 12:4-6

Genesis 12:7-9

Genesis 15:1-7

Genesis 16:1-4

Genesis 17:1-8

Genesis 18:10-14

Genesis 21:1-11

Abraham is considered to be one of the fathers of faith. Through studying about his life we can learn about trust and patience. God promised Abram that he would be the father of many nations, even though he was old and had no children.

Genesis 12:1-3  NKJV     “Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

      When Abram was seventy-five years old God commanded him to leave his land (Ur of the Chaldeans) and go to a new land. Following God’s command, Abram and his family departed for the Canaan.

Genesis 12:4-6  NKJV     “ Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land.”

     God appeared to Abram in the land of Caanaan and promised that He would give that land to his descendants. In response to God’s appearance to him and His promise, Abram built and altar and worshiped Him.

Genesis 12:7-9  NKJV     “Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him. And he moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel, and he pitched his tent with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord. So Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.”

     The Lord appeared to Abram a third time. This time God appeared to  Abram in a vision in which He used the night sky as an example of how many children Abram would have. When Abram looked up, the whole night sky was full of stars, so many in fact that he would never be able to count them. When God made a promise, Abram believed Him. His belief in God was counted unto him as righteousness.

Genesis 16:1-4   NKJV     “Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. And she had an Egyptian maidservant whose name was Hagar. So Sarai said to Abram, “See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children. Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” And Abram heeded the voice of Sarai. Then Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar her maid, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan. So he went in to Hagar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress became despised in her eyes.”

     After ten years of waiting on God to give them a son, Abram and Sarai take matters into their own hands. At eighty-five years old Abram has a son by Sarai’s Egyptian maidservant, Hagar. Using a surrogate mother was acceptable on the culture they lived in, however that was not the plan that God had.

Genesis 17:1-8  NKJV     “When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying:
“As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”

     When  Abram was ninety-nine years the Lord decided to change Abram’s name to Abraham, which means “father of many.” He also changed Sarai’s name to Sarah. God told them again that they would have a son.

Genesis 18:10-14  NKJV      “And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” (Sarah was listening in the tent door which was behind him.) Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”

     One day three men came to see Abraham and one of the men spoke and said, “I will come back to see you at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” Sarah was listening in the tent door. She started to laugh, but covered her mouth and laughed to herself because she didn’t want to be heard. She thought to herself, “How can I have a child, I’m almost one hundred years old?”

After the visitors had left, Abraham and Sarah realized that the man who had visited them was indeed God. A year later Sarah did have a son. She and Abraham named him Isaac, which means “he laughs.”

Genesis 21:1-11  NKJV     “And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac. Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.” So the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the same day that Isaac was weaned.”

     Some thirty years after Abraham was told he would be the father of many nations, God fulfilled His promise by giving to him and Sarah a son. Abraham placed his confidence and hope in God. He was promised that he would be a father of many nations, however it took many years for him to see that promise being fulfilled. During this time Abraham had to rely on his faith in God and in His Word. Even when his faith was tested.
