by James Merritt

1. How many of you have ever had at least one spanking in your life? How many of you remember the first spanking you ever got? I do. In fact, the first spanking may have been the worst one. 2. I was four years old. We were living in Tampa, Florida, and we went to church one Sunday and back in the day when you turned four years old you left pre-school and you went into big church, so I was going for my very first ...

Where is Pastor Kerry? Where could he be? He's not on stage. Could he be in the balcony? You know I'm starting the message today from a different place in an unusual way because I'm starting a new series today where we are going to look at some of the most obscure and strange passages in the Bible. Hey and let's face it there are some...

As we open to Palm 18 this morning, I have been praying that maybe this Psalm will become the most meaningful and precious of all the Psalms we have studied. We walked through David's life for many months; from his childhood and all its struggles, through the triumphs of the battle field to the defeats of those unguarded moments-all...

INTRODUCTION: We have discussed receiving the Word. Now we will consider doing the Word. Together, these two topics express the spiritual logic of James' flow of thought: the hearing of the Word must be followed by obedience; truly receiving God's Word logically means doing it. This spiritual logic was given memorable illustration...

One of the first conditions to God's blessing is to be obedient to His commands. 'Most Christians are educated way beyond their level of obedience.'' - John Maxwell ''One step forward in obedience is worth years of study about it.'' - Oswald Chambers Part of the reason that we live below the blessing line is that we want to do things our way...

Last week we looked at the only narrative written by any of the gospel writers of the New Testament concerning the childhood of Jesus. We saw that when Jesus' parents found Him back in the Temple after having left Him in Jerusalem, thinking that He was with relatives or friends, Jesus asked them if they didn't know that He was supposed...

Turn with me to John chapter fourteen and I want us to begin reading tonight in chapter fourteen and we begin reading in verse fifteen. Jesus said if ye love me keep my commandments and I will pray the father and he shall give you another comforter that he may abide with your forever...

We are looking at the highlights of these chapters. There is a great deal of information in Deuteronomy. I'm trying to put it together in about 12 messages for you. Tonight we are looking at chapters 6 and 7 which talk about the importance of doing God's Word and obeying God's will. You will recall that the book of Deuteronomy gives us a...

INTRODUCTION: 1. The main idea in this chapter is the pursuit of wisdom--spiritual wisdom (vs.7). 2. Solomon had this wisdom--God gave it to him as a gift...the wisdom to lead His people and to know how to be that spiritual man the Lord wanted him to be. a. According to God's Word, we, too, can have God's wisdom: James 1:5, "If any of...

SOUND FAMILIAR? The High Price of Half-Hearted Obedience. Romans 15:4 and 1 Corinthians 10:6,11/ Judges 2:1-3/ Judges 3:5-9/ Deuteronomy 7:1-6. They were God's people. They'd been granted great promises. They had crystal clear directions. They made stupid choices based on foolish assumptions. They paid a high price for a long...

In his commentary on the book of Acts, R. Kent Hughes tells the story of Aida Skripnikova, a Russian girl who was born in 1941 in Leningrad. "In the fall of 1961 Aida came to know Christ as a nineteen year-old, and with her new faith came the impulse to share it with others...

If I say ''the book of Genesis,'' what person or characters come immediately to mind? I mean ''Genesis,'' who do you think of? Perhaps Adam, you know the story of creation is pretty important. Likely Abraham, or as of recent Joseph. Of course you'd eventually throw in Jacob, but he probably wouldn't be our first answer as to...

A preacher, who shall we say was "humor impaired," attended a conference to help encourage and better equip pastors for their ministry. Among the speakers were many well known and dynamic speakers. One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of...

It is very easy to say we serve God. The problem is that while we may desire to serve God we are faced with traditions that constantly interfere and confuse us in recognizing and doing God's will. Certain things are clear, but applying the principles of God's will and purpose often conflicts with the patterns of life in our society. Without even...

Let's go to the Lord in prayer. Lord Jesus how we thank you for what our hearts have experienced tonight, how we thank you for sending the Holy Spirit. Thank you Father for this very moment when you are so real, when you have manifested yourself in so many wonderful ways this evening. God we don't know how to praise you enough and if we...

For the first several years of my life, I struggled on a long, hot, tiring, uphill walk toward the mark where I thought a Christian should be. Carrying the awesome responsibility of being a Christian on my weary back, I struggled on, continually reminded by my peers of the painful sacrifices one must make to please God. I became a...

Life has a way of handing us new challenges and circumstances, doesn't it? There seems to always be a new surprise around the corner and often times when it comes, our first response is, ''I'm not sure I can handle this? What am I going to do now?That's where Joshua was too! He had been assisting Moses for 40 years in guiding...

Message Truth: Real freedom comes to us when we make genuine and sincere commitments to live according to the revealed truth of God. The understanding of that truth is expressed in our obedience to His precepts. 1. Most of us will never forget the night we watched the President's address to the nation. For almost a...

Let us look once again at this segment of the model prayer: ''Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in Earth as it is in Heaven.'' God calls us to follow Him. God calls us to obedience. And this model prayer is a prayer for obedience. It talks about a kingdom and a kingdom presupposes the idea of a king. A king is sovereign, and a king has subjects who...
