"A MEASURE OF FAITH"
TEXT: VERSE 3
INTRO: Everything we have in the Christian life has been given to us by the GRACE OF GOD! That is taught numerous times throughout scripture. But, one verse that brings it all together is Romans 12:3. In that verse, we see it clearly presented that EVERY ELEMENT OF OUR SALVATION IS A GIFT OF GOD, AND THEREFORE, WE MUST REFUSE TO BE PROUD OVER WHAT WE HAVE IN CHRIST, AND HUMBLE OURSELVES BEFORE GOD IN A THANKFUL SPIRIT FOR ALL HE HAS GIVEN US. In short, God, by His grace, has given us a "MEASURE OF FAITH," in order to be saved and serve Him. Let's observe this rich text in the message today.

“NO CONDEMNATION IN CHRIST JESUS”
INTRO: One of the GREAT DOCTRINAL TRUTHS OF CHRISTIANITY IS THAT THE MOMENT WE RECEIVE CHRIST AS OUR SAVIOR, WE ARE NO LONGER CONDEMNED UNDER THE WRATH OF GOD TO HELL. This should result in a life of PRAISE AND COMMITMENT TO CHRIST.

"PRAYING FOR PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS"
INTRO: Christians remain one of the MOST PERSECUTED RELIGIOUS GROUPS in the world. In fact, it has been said that MORE CHRISTIANS ARE BEING PERSECUTED AROUND THE WORLD NOW THAN EVER BEFORE IN HISTORY. Recently I spoke with Todd Nettleton, with the VOICE OF THE MARTYRS, who confirmed this statement. Christians throughout the world continue to risk imprisonment, loss of home and assets, torture, beheadings, rape and even death just because of their FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. TRENDS show that in CERTAIN AFRICAN NATIONS persecution is INTENSIFYING, particularly among women. Every day NEW REPORTS OF CHRISTIANS BEING PERSECUTED ARE REPORTED. The OPEN DOORS WORLD WATCH organization has reported that EACH MONTH:
● 255 Christians are killed
● 104 Christians are abducted
● 180 Christian women are sexually harassed
● 66 Christian churches are attacked
● 160 Christians are detained without a trial and imprisoned

"THE BIBLICAL CONCEPT OF VOTING"
DEUTERONOMY 1:1-18; ROMANS 13:1-6
INTRO: As citizens of the United States of America, we have the privilege and responsibility of voting for candidates and issues relating to the government of our nation. AS CHRISTIAN CITIZENS, WE SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN VOTING AS IT GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING THE BIBLICAL INFLUENCE INTO THE DIRECTION OF THE
COUNTRY. Voting is very serious and truly is a very important action for every Christian to perform. DO YOU VOTE?
Consider some practical benefits of the Christian Vote:
1) The Christian Vote enables us to represent Christ's values in the direction of the nation.
2) The Christian Vote is a witness for the principles of Christ.
3) The Christian Vote is the way to bring the Word of God to bear in the culture.
4) The Christian Vote is the VOICE OF GOD in the direction of the nation.
5) The Christian Vote is the way to put our convictions into policies.
THE FAILURE TO VOTE IS NEGLECTING TO FULFILL OUR ROLE AS CHRIST'S AMBASSADORS. So, DOES GOD
WANT US TO VOTE? The answer is YES which is why we are going to consider THE BIBLICAL CONCEPT OF
VOTING in today's message.

2 CORINTHIANS 8:1-15
INTRO: What do you think of when you hear a preacher speak on GIVING? If you know in advance that he is going to speak on GIVING do you suddenly decide to go visit Aunt Sally? When you think of GIVING do you think of AN OBLIGATION, A COMMAND, OR AN EXPECTATION? IF YOU DO, THEN YOU HAVE A MISUNDERSTANDING OF BIBLICAL GIVING TO THE LORD! From GOD'S POINT OF VIEW, WHICH SHOULD BE OUR POINT OF VIEW TOO, GIVING IS A GIFT OF GRACE THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO US! Now you may say, I never thought of it like that. Well then, that means that you have NEVER REALLY STUDIED THE CONCEPT OF BIBLICAL GIVING. Today we are going to be talking about GRACE GIVING which I pray will give each of us a completely new and different attitude toward giving, if we tend to have a bad attitude toward sermons on giving and the act of giving to the Lord.

“CHOSEN TO BEAR FRUIT”
TEXT: VERSE 16
INTRO: From before the beginning of the world, God has chosen each and every BORN AGAIN BELIEVER TO BEAR FRUIT FOR HIS GLORY, FROM THE POINT OF THEIR SALVATION UNTIL THEY SEE THE LORD FACE TO FACE. THREE QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
1) Are you a Born Again Believer?
2) Are you consistently bearing fruit for the Glory of God?
3) What is the description of that fruit you are bearing?

"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.
