Summary: In every church are spots!


* A lot of people back in the old days would gather together in homes and worship God.

* They called this "Feasts of Charity." * Well, God looked through the roof of this home,

and He saw spots! * Your Pastor would like to say that Faith Church is without spot!

* Note some spots we have in our churches today:

(1) SPOTS OF UNSAVED CHURCH MEMBERS! * They’re sprinkled out in our churches!

* Statistics say that 50% of people on church rolls don’t know what it means to be saved!

A) Now, God knows who you are! * You can’t hide anything from God!

* Jer.23:24 "Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do

not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord."

* Ps.10:11"He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it."

* Jer.29:15 "Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works

are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?"

* I tell you, you keep trying to hide your sin and God will expose you! Jesus says in Lk.12:2-3,

"For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known."

* "Therefore, whatsoever ye have spoken in the darkness shall be heard in the light; and that

which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops."

C) God knows how you live! * He knows that you’re playing the poker machines!

* He knows the language you use at work! * He knows that you’re shacking up, not married.

* He knows the secret sins that you hide from others! * You’re a spot in the feast of charity!

D) Choir member - Deacons & wives - Preachers & wives - Sunday School teachers;

* Left side of church - middle of church - right side of church - could you be a spot .......?

E) The first family, Cain was a spot! * Esau was a spot! * Ananias & Sapphire was a spot;

* But Preacher, I’ve been coming to your church a long time, I can’t go down & admit I’m not

right with God!" * Lay your pride aside! * Don’t be an unsaved church member!


A) Follow Afar Off * Apostle Peter * Sunday morning glories * If their Uncle stumps their toe,

the whole family has to stay out of church.

* It’s amazing how many people it takes to take care of the sick on Sunday.

* People set and think up excuses for staying out of church.

* Dandruff - Peanut Butter - New preacher taking over church, B.P.O. beside names on roll.

B) Glory Seekers * 3 Jn. 9 "I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to ......."

* This is somebody who wants to have all the attention!

* He’s the one who don’t enjoy a good funeral service because the things being said about the

corpse is not being said about him!

* The church today is more like a goat-pen than a sheep-fold! * Too many "buts" in the church!

* Specially at business meetings! * "But Preacher, I don’t see it that way." Or, "I love so & so, but..

C) Critical Ones * Judas criticized Mary for using expensive ointment.

* A critical spirit can grieve the heart of God! * Sign on door, "Come in w/o knocking & go out

the same way!" * Some got a tongue so long, they can sit in the living room & lick a skillet .......

* Lay that long thing on the altar! * If you run your preacher down in front of your children,

don’t expect him to win them to Jesus, cause you’ve destroyed him in their presence!

D) Fussy Ones * Phil.4:2 "I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the ......."
