Morning Coffee 1/20/16 Just Who Do You Think You Are?

1 Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind: 2 “Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words? 3 Brace yourself like a man, because I have some questions for you, and you must answer them. 4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. – Job 38:1-4 NLT

Hello family, Job  began to smell himself and he defiantly questioned God. Well……. God came down and put him in his place. Sometimes we forget who we are and we (myself included) try and tell God how it is or do what we want to do.

In at the foundation of our Christian walk is servanthood Christ lived it right down to His last breath on the cross. We are now following in his footsteps. It does not matter what university or seminary you Got you papers from, it does not matter what title you hold. We are servants. God may have you as the worship leader of a local church body you are still a servant. If He (God) tells you to play a certain  song but you don’t like it, guess what? Its in your best interest to play the song. Whatever position God placed you in, You are His servant and you obey What is instructed to you if not you will reap the consequences.

God wants to use us and work through us. Things are so much easier when we put aside ourselves and say ok lord this what you want ill do it! Remember God has seen it all. And he will use us to accomplish His will. It is our best interest to remember that we simply servants in his kingdom.  Don’t hinder what God Wants to do!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/5/15 The Elephant In The Room (Audio)

“1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares [us], and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of [our] faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:1-2 NKJV”

Hello family, “The Elephant in the room” we all have one we just ignore them. the pas two weeks God put me face to face with mine (Pride). I knew it was there i just didn’t want to deal with it! I thought i can just let it hang in the background. No! God told me “Lets deal with this now! It has hung on to long!”  Now God is helping me keep myself in check. It’s not painless but it is better. Get rid of the elephant in your room its taking up too much space it will only slow your growth

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/4/15 I Am A Christian Because

Morning Coffee 9/4/15 I Am A Christian Because (Audio)

“7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. – Romans 5:7-9 NKJV.”

Hello family, I have seen the above statement post several times on Facebook. I saw it again about a week ago. and it resonated within me. “I’m not a christian because i’m strong and have it all together. I am a christian because I’m weak and admit i need a savior.” 

Every day i need Christ! Sometimes i have to break it down to hour by hour. Everyday we wake up we step into the battle zone and we cant stand on our own! Their were  days when God has had to carry me from the time I got up to the time I laid my head down. It just blows my mind that god knowing all the junk and mess i would do, that He would think of me and my eternal soul, long before the earth came to form.

The world sees us as stuck up know it alls. Sadly some who proclaim to be christians are stuck up (thats another story). At the core of a true follower of Christ is a realization that we are so lost without Christ as the head of our life! The only reason we can have any amount of strength is because God gives it to us! “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8 NKJV. “I need Thee, O I need Thee;

Every hour I need Thee; O bless me now, my Savior, I come to Thee.”

   Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/2/15 You Don’t Need A Pulpit Shout Out! Pt2 (Audio)

“23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24 NKJV”

Hello family, we are wrapping up this series. if you have not read or hear part one please go back and listen or read part one. Links are at the bottom.

Any award man can give us is temporary. The high last but for a moment then we are left empty searching for the next pulpit shout out. So why do we volunteer at the soup kitchen, why do we volunteer to clean the church? We do it because it is for the glory of God. What ever we do we are supposed to do it for God and not for man. We also do these things because God called us to do it! There are people in churches doing things God never told them to do, they have started committees that God did not tell them to start. and they are not happy, 1. Because thats not what God called them to do. Everybody that can sing is not called to be in the choir.  And 2. Their heart is in the wrong place they are looking for the glory and not to give God the glory.

With that said know where God has called you in you church body and other areas in you life. And when you operate in these areas He called you to do it for his glory!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/1/15 You Don’t Need A Pulpit Shout Out! Pt1 (Audio)

“12 The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. 13 Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit. 14 Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. 15 If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? 18 But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. – 1 Corinthians 12:12-18 NLT”

Hello family, we all have a part to play in the body of Christ. Some parts are at the forefront others are beside the scenes. Sunday my church had a guest speaker. In his message he talked about how God had called him to a church. he wondered why he was there. he soon found out.

He was eager to work, one of the church administrators asked him to fill a need and he did. His roll did not get any big recognition but yet it was still vital to the operation of that church body.

If you are volunteering your time to get a shout out from the pulpit you might as well sit down and stop because you heart is wrong. That is pride so check your motives before you volunteer for the soup kitchen

Part 2 tomorrow

Morning Coffee 8/23/15 Jealousy, Selfishness, And Pride (Part 3)

Jealousy, Selfishness, And Pride (Part 3) (Audio)

“[Psa 101:5 NLT] 5 I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors. I will not endure conceit and pride.

Pride

Hello family, we are continuing our  series Jealousy, Selfishness, And Pride. If you are just joining us please click the link below and read yesterday’s devotion before reading this one.

Pride, the final link in the chain. God showed me my pride the source of it all. Because I was thinking only of myself. That caused me to be jealous because i thought of my self higher than my brother. And that is wrong! My thoughts were not good you don’t have to speak a work to slander you neighbor. you thoughts are just as bad. And god will not have any of that!

You would not be who you are without God so calm yourself down. Rejoice in God using your brother or sister. Pride if not eliminated from the start will grow and sprout other issues. go to God and ask him to help you deal with it!

Jealousy, Selfishness, And Pride (Part 2)

“If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind..” (James 3:13-16 NLT)

Selfishness

Hello family, we are continuing our  series Jealousy, Selfishness, And Pride. If you are just joining us please click the link below and read yesterday’s devotion before reading this one.

Selfishness is linked with jealousy. When we are jealous we are thinking about us! I was thinking about me! I wanted what that other brother had for myself. God uses whom ever he wants to use. it he picks someone else other than you, don’t catch a fit! There is a reason God Choose to use that other brother or sister. If any thing we should be happy, they are on the same team, they are working with you in the kingdom of God. So why despise your teammate! they are doing their part In the body of Christ! Stay in your lane and do what God has called you to do!

STOP the selfishness! Who are you? If God had not breathed breath into you, you would not be here! Don’t forget who gives you the ability to breathe. You are not all that and a bag of chips! Humble yourself before God!

JEALOUSY

Hello family, This Morning Coffee really hits home. This past Sunday God con fronted me on jealousy, pride and selfishness, He showed me that they were with in me and needed to be dealt with.

The for a while I’ve been dealing with jealousy toward another brother. God showed it to me when it first started, i thought i dealt with it. but i didn’t. I would try and keep it under wraps but that is not what god wants. How dare i act like everything is ok when it really is not. that is lying to my brother and it is wrong. “For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind” (James 3:16 NLT) If Jealousy is left to take root it will stir up a whole lot of other stuff.

We cannot have jealousy in our hearts and be effective in the kingdom of God. God will show us it in our hearts and we must nip it in the bud. we have nothing to be jealous of, we all have different callings and different times for God to use us. So rejoice when god uses another brother or sister. after all they are just being obedient to God. Jealousy can’t casue us to miss out on what God wants to say to us. it is not about us and it never will be who are we to be jealous!

Part 2 tomorrow

Much Love & God Bless
