The psalmist said, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel
of the ungodly, nor stands in the paths of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the
scornful,” Psalm 1:1.
Have you ever really stopped and thought about the excuses men
sometimes make for not serving God? Luke 14:18 Jesus said, “They all
with one accord began to make excuses.”
As we think about excuses, is God really pleased with the excuses
we sometimes make?
In Revelation 2:4 Jesus said to the church in Ephesus, “Nevertheless
I have this against you, because you've left your first love.”
Welcome to our study of relighting our passion for Jesus. Friend is
your passion for Christ what it once was? Do you have that zeal and desire

relighting our passion for Christ.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of
mercies and the God of all comfort.”
One of the wonderful things about being a child of God is that we
have the God of comfort on our side. We all need comfort. We all need
In John 10:10 Jesus said, “I came that you may have life and have it more
Today we're going to be considering: What are the greatest things of
the Christian life?

lesson on the great privileges of the Christian life.
The psalmist said, “I will not give sleep to my eyes nor slumber to my
eyelids until I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling place for the God of
Jacob,” Psalm 132:4-5.
Have you ever had insomnia, maybe a night where you just laid in
bed and could not go to sleep no matter what? Did you know that in the
Bible there is one type of insomnia that is actually good for you? Stay
focused and we'll find out exactly what that is.
Jesus said, “Come unto me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I'll
give you rest, take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and
lowly of heart and you'll find rest for your souls,” Matthew 11:28-30.
We welcome you to our study of reward for service. What reward
does the Christian receive for his service to Almighty God?
In Revelation 21:2 the Bible says, “Then I, John, saw that New Jerusalem
that holy city coming down out of heaven from God.”
What is that new city going to be like? Are you going to view that holy
city coming down out of heaven from God? Stay tuned as we think about
what it is going to take to view that holy city.
More than anything in the world, Christians desire to go to heaven.
Paul said in Philippians 1:21, “For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”
The attitude of Paul should be the attitude of every child of God in striving
to go to heaven. Yet, sadly sometimes it's not. Sadly we let other things get
in the way of really viewing that holy city that is ultimately seen in the
beautiful picture of heaven.
The apostle Paul said, “Fight the good fight of faith,” 1 Timothy 6:12.
Did you know that Christians are soldiers in the Lord's army? To find
out more about this wonderful idea, we encourage you to stay tuned as we
think about ‘Soldiers of Christ Arise.’
One of the most powerful pictures of the church that is seen in
Scripture is as the army of the Lord. Paul would say in Ephesians 6:12 “We
do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against
powers, against the spiritual host of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Right now, if we're a child of God, we are soldiers in the Lord's army. God's
plea is as the old song says for ‘Soldiers of Christ to Arise’ and fight the
good fight of faith.
In Acts 11:26 the Bible says, “They were called Christians first in Antioch.”

importantly, why should you become a Christian?
Stay tuned as we let God's word answer the question: Why am I a
Why should someone become a child of God? Why be a Christian?
What is it that that motivates and encourages one to want to be a child of
God? As we think about this today if you're already a Christian, we want to
ask why are you a child of God?
To the elders of the Lord's church in Ephesus the apostle Paul said, “So
now brethren I commend you to God and to the word of His grace which is
able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are
sanctified,” Acts 20:32.

The Scripture says, “As He who called you is holy you also be holy in all
your conduct,” 1 Peter 1:14-15.
Did you know that there is something you cannot live without?
In Hebrews 12:14 the Bible says, “Without holiness no one can see
God.” Holiness is that key attribute that if it doesn't exist in my life and
yours, I'll never be able to be in the presence of Almighty God. And friend,
holiness is such an important idea especially in the day and age in which
we live. You realize that we live in a time of impurity, immorality,
ungodliness, and unholiness
