Ephesians 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Paul the Apostle gives great advice to us here in this verse.  He encourages us to continue to seek the Lord and His guidance and how that we must do all we do in the power of the ability of God.  But there is one word in this verse that I want us to dwell on this morning; “finally”.  We see Paul use this word several times throughout his writings.  He would use this word when it appeared he was about to close the letter to that particular church.  He knew that this could very well be his last sermon.  He was well aware that he could die at any given moment.  He had been imprisoned, beaten, stoned and persecuted near death many times for the cause of Christ.  Paul lived each day like it was his last.  We all recall some of his last words before his life ended.  “2Timothy 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”  What if today was your last day on earth?  What would be your last message?  What would be your last action?  What would you say to you friends and family?  What kind of fellowship would you entertain today?  I recall the last message Bro. Milford Biddle preached in the pulpit of AGBC.  When He stepped out of the pulpit he had forever said everything to us that he would say on this earth.  Sadly, I can also recall some last words of some Christians just before they walked out on God and entered into the backslidden life of the unknown.  My dear friend, what will be your last words?  What will be your last action?  We must live each day to the fullest of our ability.  Be ready for the Lord’s service at all times.  We never know when we are about to be used as the mouthpiece of God.  I close today with a few more last words of Paul.  Phil. 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Amen.

1Timothy 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

Have you ever heard this saying of wisdom?  “If it’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing right.”  If I heard this once while growing up then I believe I heard it a hundred times.  And I would like to think that that teaching and great wisdom still affects my daily living.  Are you trustworthy and dependable at all you did yesterday?  Will you finish today knowing that you were all you could be?  Our U.S. Army used to have a slogan that said “Be all you can be in the Army”.  Sadly the slogan has been dropped because it seemed to offend those that wanted to join the military and continue an immoral lifestyle.  The wise old saying still stands true today whether folk want to live by it or not.  “If it’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing right”.  In our verse today we see Paul advising young Timothy to do it right.  He tells him to be sure and do two things right.  First, to “hold faith”.  In other words, stand firm on the truth of God.  Do not wavier from the Word of God, the Ways of God and the Will of God.  No matter what an over educated rat tries to sway you in…stand on the real truth!  Many, many, many Christians today have allowed their carnal flesh and a misleading society to sway them from the true Word of God.  And when we are swayed from the power of the true Word then we soon can be detoured from the powerful path of God’s Way and Will.  Secondly, our verse teaches us to hold “a good conscience”.  Well, let’s see if we can put this truth in words for us this morning.  When we become a child of God then Ephesians 2 teaches us that the seal of God, the Spirit of God is put in and upon our soul.  The Spirit of God is the true presence of God.  The true presence of God is true truth.  1Jn.5:6 says And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.  We are taught to never grieve the Spirit within us.  When we sway from what we know is the truth then we grieve the power of the stirring Spirit within.  Why?  It is because when a person does that according to what he or she knows is wrong then it is sin!  James 4:17.  And one sin and another sin and another sin will grieve and grieve and grieve the Spirit within.  Soon we find ourselves callous and cold to the powerful presence of the Almighty God.  Our spiritual conscience will have been damaged.  Our verse commands us to “hold” to our conscience.  In other words, guard it and tend it ever so intently!  These two pieces of wisdom here in our verse this morning is vital to our successful Christian living.  Sadly, many have ignored the moving of the Spirit and have swayed from the truths of God and as our verse so plainly states it… “which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck”.   I close this morning with a verse of soul stirring truth.   Romans 9:1  I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost.  If it’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing right.  Amen!

Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

This is one of those verses that lift us up when we are down.  Just the first phrase should excite the Christian; for our conversation is in heaven.  Our word “conversation” here means (citizenship).  Our future home as a child of God is in the eternal realm of the Almighty God.  We that are born again do not fit in here in this world of sin.  We that are saved by grace don’t feel completely comfortable here.  Do you ever just feel like you are in a place where you are not welcome or appreciated?  That’s because you are not truly welcome here upon this earth by its dwellers of sin.  We are oddballs in a passing world.  Notice our next phrase; from whence also we look for the Saviour.  “From whence” means we are from another.  We are from another country.  We are from a place of eternity beyond the blue and stormy skies.  Let me just copy the meaning of the word “Heaven” here from the Greek dictionary; [through the idea of elevation; the sky; by extension, heaven (as the abode of God); by implication, happiness, power, eternity; specially, the Gospel (Christianity):--air, heaven(-ly), sky].  Whew!!  Just to read that excites me to know there is more to it than this place where we are.  I’m feeling better already!  Then notice he writes; also we look for the Saviour.  Those two words “look for” means to expect- fully.  Amen, Amen!!  Who are we expecting?  Who are we looking for fully?  Who is this Savior?  The Lord Jesus Christ!!  He is my Lord.  He is the one who redeemed me from the pits of sin.  He gave me hope when I was hopeless.  He approached me when I was unapproachable.  Hallelujah to His name!  Why do we act like we act?  Why do we get so ecstatic when He blows the breath of Heaven upon us?  It is because our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Glory Hallelujah!

Psalm 92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Oh my dear friends, we have discovered a treasure here in Psalm 92. The biblical meaning for 13 does not cancel out any of its bad reputation either. It means (rebellion and depravity). Our verse today expresses itself from verse 13. Many people say they are tired of hearing preaching on two things and that is commitment and church attendance. Many don’t want to hear these two subjects preached or taught simply because they both require personal sacrifice. Our verse settles in on church attendance. Notice our verse; those that be “planted” in the house of God. Our word planted here means (to be rooted and fixed). A tree is fixed in one position by its roots. You do not see a tree here today and gone tomorrow and then back again two weeks later. It is rooted and fixed. That tree stays right there until its life is completed. The Word of God commands us to attend the house of God in a planted fashion. Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Many people get irritated at the preacher for expressing the importance of church attendance thinking that he only does it for his own gain to have a larger crowd. But actually it is for our own good. Our verse 13 tells us that committed church attendance will cause us to “flourish”. This means it will cause us to grow spiritually. Society is filled with spiritually immature Christians. My friend, decide to grow and mature in grace…be planted in church. Secondly, we see that church attendance will give us protection. That’s right, protection. There are many Christians today that are living in pure life misery simply because they are not committed to the house of God. Remember, it is a command from God to attend. Our verse says; they shall flourish in the “courts of God”. The courts are better known as the courtyard. Our word “courts” here means (a fenced in yard). Simply by attending the house of God we are allowed into a protected area that cannot be acquired any other way. Our verse is not referring to the church building itself being the courts, but daily life in general. Many are careless with their church attendance. Their attendance at the House of God is not priority. AND they are always in the middle of some kind of altercation, crisis or for the lack of better words…a MESS. Christian friend, simply committing to the House of God will increase your joy of life. Going to church is powerful! Why bring misery on yourself, don’t lay out of church. Have you ever noticed that when you put something silly in the place of attending worship service that a crisis is soon at your door step? Our verse is verse 13. Don’t be rebellious against God’s command. If you do you will soon experience depravity in some form. Amen.

 

 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
