Summary: Avoid the 3 points in this sermon
Title: Clouds Without Rain
Scripture: Proverbs 25:14 KJV:
Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.
Application: The 1st point is Religion without Purity. John 1:26-27 says, "26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not. 27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose." There are many religions out here and don't have any purity. God can't use those religions. God uses the Holy Ghost to purify and consecrate his followers to follow the cross.
The 2nd point is Faith Without Works. Read James 2:14-26 in your devotional times. It talks about how we should put action to our faith. Show me what you're working with.
The 3rd and final point is Love without Sincerity. Ezekiel 33:31 says, "And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness." Show real love and sincere to all people.
