Always Remember

  By Pastor Mike

We need to remember every day what the military has done for this country. Never forget. We are here because of the freedom we have.

Moses had to remind his peeps to remember all the suffering they did as slaves in Egypt. How they were oppressed by Pharaoh. He reminded them that GOD got them out of there and to the promised land because they were HIS people. We need to remember and never forget where JESUS brought us out from. When we were slaves to sin.

Deuteronomy 5:15

“And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.”

Deuteronomy 15:15

“And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee.”

The things of this world will distract you. The devil makes things look nice and shiny and it catches our eye and we want it. Our focus and passion for JESUS changes.

Remember when you started to build a strong relationship with JESUS, how you just loved HIM so much that you couldn’t get enough of God, church and the Bible? What happened? We need to ask ourselves if we still hold that same love? Do we still have that same passion? Remember your first love for Jesus and GET BACK to it!

JESUS reminded them in

Matthew 16:9-10 “Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?”

He told them to remember the loaves.

In Mark 6:52  the Apostles were afraid when the waters were kicking up and the boat was rocking like crazy. They didn’t know what to do. They called on JESUS and he calmed the storm and told them, remember all the miracles you saw me do. They “considered not the miracle of the loaves.”

If you have a need that seems too big or a situation that is out of control, REMEMBER THE LOAVES! Nothing is too big for GOD! Today is the day to grab a hold of JESUS and REMEMBER all HE has done for us

Luke 16 tells of Lazarus and the Rich man. Lazarus died and was in Heaven, but the rich man died, he was in Hell. He looked up and called for mercy from Abraham, but Abraham said, “REMEMBER.” You were Blessed with so much in your life and helped no one. Anyone going to hell will remember that they had a chance to serve JESUS. Be with HIM forever.

If you reject the Truth today and go into eternity without JESUS, you will remember it in hell forever!

Remember when you were feeling sad and depressed. Do you remember how JESUS held you in HIS arms and comforted you.

Remember when you needed money for bills and JESUS provided for you. Remember how HE provided a job.

Remember when you were in pain and JESUS healed you.

Remember when you were scared and afraid and HE gave you peace.

Keep Your Soul on Fire

his-fire-fills-my-soul[1]   By Pastor Mike

We as Christians really need to keep our souls on fire for JESUS.

Having our souls on fire and staying on fire will help us get through each and every day when anything comes up. If we really have a soul on fire, we will have it 24/7. Every moment of our lives will be on fire. We need to have it deep in our souls to understand what’s the most important thing in our lives.

I’m gonna preach it until we have it deep in our souls to understand what’s the most important thing in our lives.

When you have a soul on Fire for JESUS and you keep it burning strong and powerful, you can command the enemy to take his hands of your family. Tell him that you can’t have my kids. You can’t have my family. You can’t have my joy. You can’t have my increase. You can’t have my Blessings.

I Thessalonians 5:19

“Quench not the Spirit.”

Paul told the Christians there not to quench the Holy Spirit. We should never quench the Holy Ghost. Let that fire burn strong. Sometimes if we’re not careful, it could become easy for us to get sidetracked by the things of this world causing us to lose our passion for the things of GOD and letting the flames of our faith to become just embers. We gotta live our lives that’s pleasing and acceptable to GOD. We need the power of the Holy Ghost to fall on us and set us on fire. More love! More power! More about you JESUS! The cry of our heart should be “Set us on fire God. Set us on fire!”

Set us on fire with a passion for JESUS and HIS Word.

You can’t develop a passion for JESUS without knowing Him. You can’t know HIM without spending time with HIM. You can’t realize how awesome HE is without HIM changing you. You can’t love HIM without having a passion to know HIM more. You know how excited you get when telling people about JESUS. Keep that fire in your soul burning stronger and stronger every day.

Jeremiah 20:9

Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.”

Keeping our souls on fire for JESUS will bring a passion for the lost. If we are so focused on Jesus, we will share HIS love and have a passion for the souls of men. We can’t hold it in anymore.

Romans 10:14

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”

Having a passion for souls will make us have soul-winning as the main business of our lives. What we do for JESUS will be exciting and it will keep the fire in our souls burning strong. We should be willing to change our plans for the sake of others. So we can reach out to them and to teach Bible studies.
