In all your conduct, be Holy!


God's Word is clear this morning, we are not to separate our lives into different areas. This one part God can have and this part I will run, ect. ALL areas are to be given over to God, therefore all our conduct is to be Holy! Read these verses:

1 Peter 1:13-16


13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is


written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”


No where does it say this will be easy. Matter of fact the Word tells us to prepare our minds, be sober, and put your hope fully at the hearing of God's Word! It goes on to tell us to be obedient, don't give into the former lusts or sin when we were ignorant before receiving the power of the Holy Spirit to flee from sin. God tells us as He is holy we are to be holy and don't miss this point...IN ALL OUR CONDUCT! Every area of our life is to be holy not just the ones we think we should give to God....all or nothing!


We have a bunch of folks today who are picking and choosing what they think is right and wrong, God makes that decision and has revealed everything in His Word. Get in it and find out. Majority doesn't rule, God does!


So are you holy this morning? You are if you are washed in the blood of Jesus, so live like it! Praise God!

So we could look in.


On Easter Sunday we had a joint sunrise service with Pisgah Methodist Church here in J'ville. It was an awesome time to gather with other brothers and sisters in Christ to worship the King. Bro. David Sauer brought the message that morning (and did a great job I might add) and pointed out something I never had thought about and want to share with you this morning. Read theses verses:

John 20:1-9
The Empty Tomb

20 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.”

3 Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. 4 So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. 5 And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, 7 and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. 8 Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. 9 For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.


In verse 5 we see the disciple looking into the tomb to see Jesus was not there. Now if you are like me I missed a very important point. The rock was rolled away so we could look in to see Jesus gone, not for Jesus to get out! You see Jesus did not need the rock to be moved, as He could have went through the walls with no problem. How can I say that? Read this:



John 20:19-20


19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.


Did you catch verse 19 "the doors were shut", Jesus stood in their midst and did not need the doors to be opened! He walked right in! So the rock did not need to be moved as Jesus could have walked right out, but it was moved so we could know Jesus is alive!!!!


How comforting it is to know Jesus is alive and well this morning at the right hand of the Father. Preparing heaven for you and I. One day soon He will return to gather the faithful, are you prepared for His return?

Have the faith of a little girl!


We make our faith very complicated sometimes don't we? I was reading in 2 Kings yesterday and come across the faith of a little girl and reminded me of how simple faith really is if we just have the faith of a child:

2 Kings 5:1-5



1 Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper. 2 And the Syrians had gone out on raids, and had brought back captive a young girl from the land of Israel. She waited on Naaman’s wife. 3 Then she said to her mistress, “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Samaria! For he would heal him of his leprosy.” 4 And Naaman went in and told his master, saying, “Thus and thus said the girl who is from the land of Israel.”

5 Then the king of Syria said, “Go now, and I will send a letter to the king of Israel.”

So he departed and took with him ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold, and ten changes of clothing.
A few things I want us to see here:

1. Naaman was a great man, honorable, a gentile, a commander of the Army of Syria, and the Lord had given victory in battle. Make sure you catch that God used and blessed a gentile here, not an Israelite! God had a plan for us gentiles all along too nit just the Jews!

2. A young girl from Israel had kept her faith even in captivity. She believed in God's power and recommended Naaman to go see Elisha!

3.Naaman must have had some belief or he never would have went to see Elisha or even take request to the King.

So you see our faith can have influence on others. Do you have the faith in your God as this young girl? Are you sharing you faith with others and telling them what your God can do? Oh may we all have a child like faith as said here:

Matthew 18:1-4

18 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

2 Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Moses had it figured out!


Moses in Exodus chapters 24 through 33 had some up and down moments to say the least. He was called by God to the top of Mt. Sinai to receive the law including the ten commandments. What a time huh? Meeting with God. Then he came down to Aaron and the people of Israel to find what? They had made a golden calf to worship! Wow after all God had done and it did not take long for them to turn away from Him. Moses went to make intercession for them but a major change was announced. They could continue forward but God would no longer lead them, He would send an Angel to lead them! That is major! His presence was taken away. God would only meet with Moses at this point.

This troubled Moses, that God would not lead them personally, so much that He told God this:

Exodus 33:15

15 Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.


Moses knew the importance of God's presence! We need to make sure we have this figured out like Moses! We need God in every area of our life. We don not need to make any decision, go anywhere, or do anything without God's direction and presence!


In the end , God forgave Israel and led them because of the intercession of Moses. We all need to make sure we desire God's presence for without Him we are doomed!
