Summary: God has some things you don’t want to miss out on

JOHN 20:19-24 "SOME THINGS I DON’T WANT TO MISS"

A) Birthdays / Anniversaries ... Wife looks at you & says, "You know what today is?"

* Thomas missed something ... Thomas missed Sunday night church!

B) Does it matter if you miss one service? * Thomas ... why wasn’t he there?

* Do you think it was important for them to be there on the day of Pentecost when the Holy

Spirit came? * What if they had not been there!

C) There are a lot of things we miss out on in this life because we wasn’t there!

* But there are some things in the future that God has for them that love Him,

* And I don’t want to miss them!

(1) I DON’T WANT TO MISS BEING SAVED AND LOVING JESUS!

* How many of you believe being saved is the greatest life in the world?

A) It’s Better Than Dope And Booze! * Why do people take drugs & drink alcohol?

* To get high! * They like the kick it gives them! * When I got my teeth pulled .......

B) Do you know why I’m saved? * I like the kick it gives me!

* People takes drugs to make them feel good ... Being saved feels good!

* So, I don’t want to miss being saved and loving Jesus!

(2) I DON’T WANT TO MISS THE SERVICE! * Matt.18:20 "For where two or ......."

* A lot of church members seemingly are content to be absent when the church services are

going on, but for me, I want to be there!

A) I Don’t Want To Miss The Service! * Did you listen to what Jesus said in Matt.18:20?

* If two or three get together in the Lord’s name, He is going to be in the midst to bless!

* I don’t want to miss the blessing! * Ps.122:1 "I was glad when they said ......."

B) I Want To Do Something This Morning!

* Going to church ought to make Clemson tigers look like little pussy-cats!

* Going to church ought to make the Gamecocks look like dibby-chickens!

C) We ought to have fun going to church! * "Can’t wait to get there!" * Let’s have church!

* Here’s what I want to do! * Sing ... "Alleluia ....... Praise ye the Lord"

* There’s some things I don’t want to miss and I don’t want to miss the service!

(3) I DON’T WANT TO MISS THE SHOUT! * 1 Thes.4:16-17 "For the Lord ......."

* I like that phrase, "For the Lord Himself ..." * Not an angel, not the Holy Spirit, but Jesus!

A) "With a shout ..." * That word "shout" means: with the word of command!

* The shout with which the general gives a command to his troops, ordering them into battle,

or to march, or a captain gives to the crew on his ship!

* The Commander-in-Chief of the universe will shout louder than any voice has ever shouted!

B) There will not only be a shout, but "the voice of the archangel will cry out!"

* What will he cry out? * Probably for all the angels to join in praise for this glorious event!

* Christ taught that the heavenly angels would be with Him when He returned to earth!

C) Matt.24:31 "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall ......."

* Matt.25:31 "When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with ......."

D) "Then the trump of God shall sound!" * The trumpet has always been for the purpose:

* Of arousing attention and warning! * The whole universe will be aroused and warned!

* There’s gonna be a shout, and I don’t want to miss the shout!

(4) I DON’T WANT TO MISS THE SUPPER! * Rev.19:9 "And he saith unto me, Write ..."

* I love to eat! * Anybody feel led of the Lord to take me out to eat?

A) When that great supper is spread in the sky, I want to be there!

* It will be great when the saints of all ages sit down together! * Matt.8:11 "And I say unto

you, that many shall come from the ... and shall sit down with ... in the kingdom of heaven."

B) I can show you what we’re having at the marriage supper!

* Turn in your Bibles to Matt.22:1-4 * Oxen and fatlings - steer that has been grain fed!

* Dessert - Banana Pudding ... wafers (Exo.16:31) Banana (Rev.22:2) Pudding (Exo.3:8)

C) We’re gonna eat in heaven at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb!

* We’ll eat not because we’re hungry, but because we want to, and it tastes good!
