Summary: How to act when you get delivered...
"When You Get Delivered"
Awww come on & praise the Lord everybody!!! He’s worthy to be praised up in this house!! Ushers, you may let the worshippers in, as the people of God are seated in the presence of the Lord. I will not be before you long on this evening, but for just a few minutes I want to talk from the subject as the Holy Spirit shall lead & guide of "When You Get Delivered!" Look at your nieghbor & say "Nieghbor, when I get Delivered." Can I help somebody on today??
My Brothers and my Sisters, if I could keep it real with you for just a few minutes on today, this text excites me, and it, it excites me because a man who has been sick for many years, has now, been, been, delivered. Somebody oughta shout delivered!! He’s been delivered, he’s been delivered, and I believe that in the text, he shows us what to do and how to act when you get delivered. Can I teach y’all for a minute?? Look at the text, verse 8 says "He got up" and when you get delivered by God from something that’s the first thing you gotta do, you gotta get up. Far too many of us are being delivered from things by God and ways are being made and doors are being opened but we’re still sitting in our mess. We’re still held in bondage by that thing not because God has not delivered us, but because we refuse to get up outta our mess even after God iopens up a door. Can I get a witness in this house? And so the first thing you gotta do is you gotta get up! Somebody oughta shout "Get Up!"
But not only that, not only that, verse 8 also says that the man, "began to walk, and to leap, and to skip." When he found he was delivered and could now move his limbs he began to walk, then when he found out he could walk he began to leap & skip. And when you get delivered, you gotta learn how to walk, leap, and skip into your new way of life. You’ve gotta learn how to walk away from that which you’ve been delivered from, and not turn back. Look at somebody & say, "I won’t go back, becauase God has brought me, too far, he’s bought me a mighty long way!!" If you’ve been delivered, you should have a skip in your step, a leap and a bound in your walk, you should be running, ha, into the house of God, ha, with a dance in your step, ha, and a leaping in your heart, ha, for you’ve been delivered, ha, you’ve been set free, ha, wellll, can I teach you one more thing, ha, the man Got up, ha, he leaped, skipped, and jumped, but then thirdly, ha, look at verse 8, it says "He praised God, and walked into the temple with them!" When you get delivered, ha, you’ve gotta learn how to praise God!!!!! Can I get a witness, ha, as much as God has done for you, ha, you oughta be on your feet, ha, ha, giving God praise, ha, up in this house!!!! like you’ve lost your mind!!!!! For when I think of the goodness of Jesus!!!!! And allllllll he’s done for me, ha, my soul cries out, HALLELUJIAHHHHH!!!!!!!! And so the man, ha, praised God, ha, he went into the temple, ha, shouting unto God, dancing unto god, ha, and giving God glory!!!!!!! Ha, I feel like preaching!!!!!
