Summary: This sermon reflects the wilderness and how the tempter uses doubt to test the marque, a model brand of the faith of Jesus Christ in and against the shortcomings of the simple ones holding on by the faith of a mustard seed.
Matthew 4: 1-10
Following the Lord through wilderness is where holiness is obtained; on green grass with jaborandi, it’s like dew following an early morning; in my ears, the lullabies are singed. I had to resist the easy way out of compromising to fall to sleep. My heart for the word of God is like medicine, it helps me to feel close to rivers of living water. The name of Jesus can do this, and only the name of Jesus can do, just what he said- he would do. There’s not a drug that can give my soul rest like Jesus. (It’s enough) It’s enough for him to bring out his best storytelling and redirecting the truth about what he tells us is reality; in actuality, we are like sheep led to slaughter.
The lord is calling you, when he calls you, don’t stop or interfer with yourself from coming, by ignoring his call to you, because he knows that you heard him. Fighting against the slaughter is no new thing. (Know body wants to die) some people do. There’s a pattern out there that seems right, but it’s the wrong, stone. If the name of Jesus is not on the stone in your life, than you are not wrong for saving your life in the eyes of the crusher; I know this saying sees hard, but it’s true, so many have been stoned to powder. If we try to save ourselves from dying with the name of Jesus on the stone of our heart; we will lose the life that we already have in him. Persecutions are not fun at all nor are sufferings, a pleasurable supersedure.
“They that live Godly in Christ Jesus must suffer persecutions.”
It's time to get tough with our personal makeover, by being slow to anger.
Slow to shake hands, we're not touching each other sudently or because it's part of a custom, but it is not the will of God.
There’s a blessing in suffering; the assurance that it gives to those who endure crank. We are starting up for Jesus. When you’re running for Jesus; you’re running by the power of God in him, Jesus who lives in the temple of those who serve him in spirit and in truth. You got to choose to run with him. He is able to take care of those who run by faith. You don’t have to worry about persecutions, because God is with you, in as much as he was with his disciples. They didn't have to worry about anything, because he was more than those that were against you. The world is against Jesus. The Lord wants us to trust him; let what the Lord wants matter. Living with the Lord forever: Seeing how wonderful life is to us,( Recognize the truth), God wants the best for us all.
It will always be better with his love. Because of his best, we have highest rights to the tree of life to live forever. The right to be created in his image and after his likeness cheeringly, I don’t know about you, but I know that I want to do everything I know too, to please God. Pleasing the Lord is to be the most important work in our life angelically. By his spirit, we are supernatural beings. We can love others, instead of hating them. When we let the Lord make a different in our life, he gives us his power to be compassionate
