"EXAMINE YOURSELF TODAY"
2 CORINTHIANS 13:5
INTRO: There are many people in church today all around the world who
"THINK" they are saved for one reason or another, but are fooled by their own
thinking and Satan's deception. So to help you to focus on the reality of YOUR
SALVATION I ask you these two questions:
1) HAVE YOU COME TO THE PLACE IN YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE WHERE
YOU KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT IF YOU WERE TO DIE TODAY YOU
WOULD GO TO HEAVEN?
2) SUPPOSE THAT YOU WERE TO DIE TODAY AND STAND BEFORE GOD
AND HE WOULD SAY TO YOU, "WHY SHOULD I LET YOU INTO MY
HEAVEN," WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

”THREE WARNINGS TO CONSIDER"
SCRIPTURE: HEBREWS 10:19-25
TEXT: HEBREWS 10:25
INTRO: As BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS, we are a part of the GREATEST ENTITY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. I am speaking of the CHURCH, THE BODY OF CHRIST. And as GREAT AS THE CHURCH IS, I believe that many of us do not UNDERSTAND or APPRECIATE how GREAT THE CHURCH is in the mind of the Lord Jesus! In the passage before us today, we have some teaching about the CHURCH that really comes to us as a WARNING. In fact, there are THREE WARNINGS IN HEBREWS 10:25 THAT EACH OF US NEED TO CONSIDER SERIOUSLY. It is quite possible that some of you nave NEVER or have SELDOM considered these warnings, which is why we shall look at them today. I PRAY WE WILL ALL HAVE AN OPEN HEART TO WHAT CHRIST IS SAYING TO US THROUGH THIS TEXT and then that EACH OF US WILL RESPOND ACCORDINGLY TO THE WILL OF GOD.

"THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH, OUR SONG, AND OUR SALVATION"
SCRIPTURE: PSALM 118:1-29
TEXT: PSALM 118:14
INTRO: Psalm 103:2 says: "BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL, AND FORGET NOT ALL HIS BENEFITS." In reality, that is a CLEAR COMMAND OF SCRIPTURE, but nevertheless, many of us who know the Lord SO OFTEN FAIL TO FOCUS ON HIS BENEFITS. WOULD YOU AGREE? When we focus on THE LORD'S BENEFITS, WE WILL BE GREATLY ENCOURAGED. But when we do not focus on THE LORD'S BENEFITS, WE WILL TEND TO BE DISCOURAGED. Satan loves that, by the way! So, to focus on the LORD'S BENEFITS TO US is a GREAT SPIRITUAL CONCEPT TO APPLY TO OUR LIVES. In Psalm 118 we have MANY of the BENEFITS OF THE LORD LISTED. Verse 14 gives us three of them that we will focus on this morning. As we do, let's give God the THANKS AND PRAISE HE DESERVES for these great benefits He pours out upon us each day that we might be enabled to serve and enjoy him more and more.

"THE BEAUTY OF THE LORD"
SCRIPTURE: PSALM 27:1-14
TEXT: PSALM 27:4
INTRO: What do you think of when you hear the word "BEAUTY?" A Person? A Place? An Item? A Concept? A Piece of Clothing? I suppose all of those words could describe that which is BEAUTIFUL. According to the WEBSTERS COLLEGE DICTIONARY, the word "BEAUTY" means: "THE QUALITY PRESENT IN A PERSON OR THING THAT GIVES INTENSE PLEASURE OR DEEP SATISFICTION TO THE MIND OR THE SENSES." I suppose that is true and it certainly can be applied to many people and things in life. But, in our text, we are told that OUR LORD HAS BEAUTY. Have you ever considered that? Well, today we shall "ATTEMPT" to consider the BEAUTY OF THE LORD and I want to emphasize the word "ATTEMPT" because, to be honest, GOD IS SO BEAUTIFUL THAT WE CANNOT, IN HUMAN WORDS OR EXPRESSIONS, TAP THE SERVICE OF HIS GREAT BEAUTY. But let's consider HIS BEAUTY anyhow and see how He teaches us today.

"HOMESICK FOR HEAVEN"
INTRO: I have always been one to get homesick very easily....But I will never forget the first time when I became HOMESICK FOR HEAVEN (Share the account). Since then, there have been many times when I became homesick for Heaven...particularly when one I knew died and went to Heaven. HOW ABOUT YOU? HAVE YOU EVER BEEN HOMESICK FOR HEAVEN!

"A BIBLICAL CHALLENGE TO GODLY MEN"
1 CORINTHIANS 16:13,14
(A FATHER'S DAY SERMON)
INTRO: I have a question to all men under the sound of my voice today. "DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR SELF A GODLY MAN?" Now let me attempt to qualify and simplify the question. A Godly man is one who HAS TRUSTED CHRIST AS PERSONAL SAVIOR AND WHO DESIRES TO TRUST, OBEY AND SERVE GOD EVERY MOMENT OF HIS LIFE. Does that describe you? If it does, PRAISE THE LORD and you are encouraged to continue in the way you are going. If it does not, YOU CAN BECOME A GODLY MAN TODAY. The Bible is loaded with instructions for one who wants to be a GODLY MAN. One of the passages that gives us some insight is found in 1 Corinthians 16:13,14 that we shall study today. In this passage, we see FIVE CHALLENGES FOR ALL MEN WHO DESIRE TO BE GODLY. Let's Observe.

"BIBLICAL REVIVAL - WHAT IS IT?"
INTRO: For years we have heard people talk about REVIVAL. Preachers preach about revival. Writers write about revival. Teachers teach about revival. Prayers Warriors pray for revival. BUT WHAT IS REVIVAL? WHY IS REVIVAL NECESSARY? WHO NEEDS REVIVAL? HOW DOES REVIVAL COME? These are just a few questions that must be considered when contemplating BIBLICAL REVIVAL. So, today we are going to begin a series entitled: "BIBLICAL REVIVAL - WHAT IS IT?" This is a series that both DESERVES and DEMANDS our attention because REVIVAL IS A SUBJECT THAT HAS BEEN AND STILL IS NECESSARY IN THE LIVES OF ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN (THOSE WHO GENUINELY HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD) SINCE THE DAYS OF ADAM AND EVE. As we walk through this series the question for each for us to ask is: "TO WHAT DEGREE IS REVIVAL NEEDED IN MY LIFE."

“THE GODLY WOMAN OF PROVERBS”
INTRO: In searching the scriptures we find that God has given a lot of information on the role of the man, the woman and the children in the family relationship. One book that is rich with teaching familial and personal qualities is the Book of Proverbs. Today we are going to WALK THROUGH PROVERBS to see what it has to say about the GODLY WOMAN.
