Sermon:
SOMEBODY CALL 911!
JAMES 1:23-25


INTRO: WHAT WILL YOU BE LIKE AS A CHRISTIAN IN 10 YEARS?
A). SOME OF YOU WILL BE WALKING AND SERVING JESUS.
B). FOR OTHERS THERE WILL BE A TRAGEDY, NOT PHYSICAL,
BUT SPIRITUALLY.
C). BECAUSE IN 10 YEARS SOME WILL HAVE LOST THEIR ZEAL
AND LOVE FOR JESUS.
D). NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO, OR PLANNED
IT, BUT BECAUSE THEY ALLOWED THE WORLD TO SET
THEIR WAYS.
E). SOME MAY BE SUGGESTING LIKE PETER “NOT ME…”
F). TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS, AS LITTLE AS 8 YEARS AGO,
CHANGED 85%.
G). SOME HAVE COME AND GONE, OTHERS LEFT, OTHERS TAKEN
THEIR PLACE.
H). GOD’S WORD TELLS US THEY HAVE BEEN DECEIVED,
ROBBED, CHEATED.


1). JAMES 1:23-25
A). LIKE SO MUCH OF GOD’S WORD, WE KNOW IT, QUOTE IT,
READ IT, YET IT NEVER TAKES ROOT IN OUR LIVES.
B). NO TRUE CHANGE COMES – BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN
DECEIVED.
C). LOOK IN A MIRROR AND SEE WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED
AND DO NOTHING.
D). BEEN DECEIVED INTO BELIEVING EVERYTHING IS OKEY
DOEKY.
E). THERE MAY BE BLAME TO PASS AROUND BUT WE NEED TO
START WITH SELF

2). WE FIRST CHEAT OURSELVES OUT OF GOD’S BLESSINGS:
A). NOT DISCOUNTING THE IMPORTANCE OF HEARING GOD’S
WORD.
B). “FAITH COMES BY HEARING AND HEARING THE WORD OF
GOD”
C). DECEIVED INTO THINKING YOUR SAVED JUST BECAUSE
YOUR IN CHURCH.
D). BECAUSE YOU STAYED FOR THE SERMON, YOU WILL BE
OKAY.
E). BECAUSE YOU OWN A SUIT, CARRY A BIBLE, DOES NOT
ESTABLISH THE WORD IN YOUR LIFE.
F). PUTTING THE WORD INTO PRACTICE, APPLYING IT,
LIVING IT OUT.
G). TOO MANY IN CHURCH WITHOUT A FOUNDATION.
H). “HOUSE BUILT ON SAND CANNOT WEATHER THE STORMS”
I). GETTING GOD’S WORD ON THE INSIDE IS WHERE THE
DIFFERENCE IS.


2). CHEATED BY OTHERS:
A). MY WIFE CHECKS OUR DOOR LOCKS 4-5 TIMES EVERY
NIGHT.
B). YET WE ALLOW THE DOORS TO OUT HEARTS TO GO
UNGUARDED.
C). ALLOW OTHERS TO DICTATE WHETHER WE ARE GOING TO
GO TO CHURCH.
D). IF MY WIFE, HUSBAND, CHILDREN, NEIGHBOR GOES.

E). IF I HAVE A GOOD MONTH, WEEK, DAY, HOUR I’LL GO.
F). YOUR SALVATION CANNOT BE BASED UPON WHAT SOMEONE
ELSE DOES.
G). SOME OF THE SAME FOLKS THAT WITNESSED TO YOU TO
GET IN CHURCH MAY NOT EVEN BE HERE NEXT YEAR,
MUCH LESS 10 YEARS.
H). WE ARE ALLOWING OTHERS OPINIONS TO DETERMINE OUR
BLESSINGS.
I). BEEN FOLLOWING MAN WAY TOO LONG (PERSONALITY VS
PURPOSE).


3). CHEATED BY THE FATHER OF DECEPTION:
A). SATAN IS SNATCHING FOLKS OUT OF CHURCH
LEFT/RIGHT.
B). NOT JUST LAY MEMBERS, BUT MINISTERS AS WELL.
C). DECEIVING THEM INTO BELIEVING LIES, CHEATING
THEM OUT OF THEIR GODLY INHERITANCE.
D). KNOW A MAN LOST JOB, MARRIAGE, CHILDREN,
MINISTRY, JESUS.
E). SOMEONE SAID “BRIANNA WILL PROBABLY MARRY A
PREACHER”
E). NOT A PREREQUISITE OF MINE –
