A Sermon Calling for a Good Response…the Best!

I took sermon notes and I’m copying them here. visualize we have an insurmountable obstacle before us. Attack is approaching from behind! Though the Red Sea opens and we see a way to advance, our enslavers still pursue! Until..until…until our call for deliverance is seen to have been answered in a plan laid ou long before, but carried out in a moment.
A compulsive ego will lay out many ways…better ways, even an only way to gullible and frantic minds. Holy Spirit offers a Best Way.
THERe has been put together a video meant to drive compulsives bonkers. It shows duct tape solutions, coloring outside of lines, a bag being opened from theb ottom! OF the ways to get to Seattle one way suggested was to walk. You are left telling yourself, “Sure, but, there is probably a better way.”
The preacher quoted Hebrews 11 where Enoch was selected to be taken because he chose the Best way…Believing that God exists and that He is the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
A better testimony, and legacy was chosen by Abel whose best and first fatling offering was esteemed better than Cain’s…”some produce.” We also can be faithful despite our forefathers’ failures. Find out the Child of a King that you are, render no excuses, resist peer influence. You only have an audience of ONE!
When someone gave you a gift with your desires and needs in mind, was it not the more appreciated? You can tell the ones just grabbed off a gas station shelf!
When I give God my first and best He says I am storing up treasures in Heaven! If Holy Spirit says give, and you hear it loud and clear, why not do what is right? Even if it makes someone mad…even if it gets you flogged like the desciples.
Martha was out to be seen as the volunteer of the year while Mary idled her work time sitting at Jesus’ feet. One was good said the ego. One was the only best and needful place… said Jesus.
what ambition is worthy? Solving worries? A tem pursuit of a trophy and fame? Life, liberty and pursuit of happiness? A great age and honorable sons? Methusela was one, but even though Enoch attained the age of 365 he was honored by God who transitioned him to an undying state.
What is worship but the humble acceptance of His Love. It is vanity to think God could be added to or needs our praise! Who is your God? A harsh taskmaster or the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him for they are convinced they have a worthy pursuit and they will attain!
Paul said that for the sake of attaining Christ he had forsaken all. What he would attain was to know Him and the Power of His Resurrection!
We seek not just a ‘good’ response but a better one…the best!
