Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

As a born again child of God we can have the peaceful assurance that our Lord will provide for us.  Yes, He does command that we do our part.  He does not distribute much kindness to a lazy and slothful servant.  We have His word of promise that He will not leave us high and dry.  He is our providential Lord.  Our text for today is one that is so very familiar.  We have all quoted it many times.  And I must say it is a reassuring verse.  But I want to point our attention to a word within this powerful verse.  Notice with me the word “need”.  Now at first we jump with joy with thoughts that He is promising to give us whatever we want.  Many times we expect Him to provide for us regardless of our want.  I must say that we are guilty of mostly wanting things that are temporary and carnal.  Yes, the Lord does award us with many carnal blessings, but what is the one thing we really need that will meet every need there is in our life.  This one thing will cause everything else to fall into place.  This one thing is the only need that will meet our every need.  Notice our word is singular not plural.  We have all been guilty of quoting the verse as “needs”, plural.  But it is in fact singular.  What is this one “need” that will supply all needs?  I recall the rich young ruler that came to Jesus and recited all the religious works he had performed in his life and the Lord then informed him that he still lacked one very important thing.  Then we are reminded what Jesus said in Matt. 6:33; But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Look back at our one real “need” in today’s text verse.  That one real need is Jesus.  Yes, we that are saved already have Jesus.  But I must ask a very important question this morning.  Does Jesus have you?  Yes, if we are saved He is our Saviour and we are in His care, but have you surrendered you to Him??  I am afraid we spend many hours each week trying to meet needs without fulfilling that one need.  The need that fills all needs is JESUS!  Heb. 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.  You have Jesus but does Jesus have you?  Amen.

Acts 3:10 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

We are all familiar with this verse and the section of scriptures it is pulled from.  This is the story of the crippled man who lay at the Temple gate and begged for money.  He was a beggar because of his physical condition that restricted him from earning a living by work.  I must pause for a moment and say praise the Lord that we live in a country that has a system to assist those that are in the condition of this man mentioned here.  This man was at the mercy of the giver.  He had no other way of getting the funds he needed for food and need.  As Peter and John are headed into the Temple for prayer meeting, this crippled man was at the gate begging.  3:5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. 6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. 7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God.  As Peter was an apostle and had been given temporary power to heal through the power of the Lord Jesus, he spoke words to this crippled man that would change his life.  These words would turn his life 180 degrees.  This man woke that morning completely unable to walk and because of Peter’s words of obedience he was about to walk home.  Actually he did not just walk.  He leaped!  My friend, if a miracle took place in your life wouldn’t you leap and praise God too?  Notice our text verse.  When the people saw him they recognized him as the cripple from the gate and that he was no longer crippled.  This was an amazing sight to behold.  What about us?  I wonder do people from our past see what the Lord Jesus has done to us and it amazes them.  For those who have a sinful past, your life should be a miraculous display of the life altering grace of God!  Those who are privileged to have been raised in church and have been protected from the filth of sin, you too should be a beacon of hope to those who see that it is possible to raise your children in the admonition of the Lord and they not depart from the faith.  Actually those of you who are privileged to have been raised uncrippled physically with sin must not forget that you were once crippled spiritually with sin and the Lord Jesus rescued you from judgment.  Oh dear friend, we all must have a spirit of gratitude in the display of our life because of the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ!  If it were not for someone delivering the message of grace to our wretched soul, where would we be today?  We would be crippled and begging!  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved!  We have so much to be thankful for today.  Let’s make sure when the world sees us today that they marvel at what grace has done to our life.  Also we must be attentive and discerning today as we just might be the one who speaks a word of grace that will totally change someone’s life.  Amen.

Proverbs 19:23  The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

Being responsible is next to godliness.  No, that’s not a verse I just quoted, but it is a truth of life that is complimented by many scriptures.  Our text for today is one of those verses.  We read verse after verse throughout God’s Word that commands us to fear the Lord.  This word “fear” means to reverence, trust and commit our lives to the Lord and to the cause of the gospel.  We are breathing because of Him.  Our heart beats because of Him.  We survived the night because of Him.  We will conquer today because of Him.  He is God.  He is our sovereign Lord.  He knows all and is in control of all.  Nothing happens that He does not know about.  He can adjust, abolish or allow any and all situations and circumstances.  He is The God.  What a marvelous and sovereign God we have!!  He is worthy to be feared.  Our word “fear” also includes the knowledge of His power in judgment.  We must not forget that He is the God of judgment.  All unjudged will be judged by Him.  My friend, we must determine to fear the Lord.  A Christian who fears the Lord “tendeth to life”.  A true sign of fear of the Lord is responsible living.  The present generation is plagued with irresponsibility.  Many take no pride in their work.  So many just leave loose ends flopping in the winds of life.  I do realize we cannot accomplish all in a day, but there’s a big difference in doing our best and just letting things lie assuming they will take care of themselves.  Assuming will make an irresponsible Christian gain a bad reputation.  Friend, the Bible teaches us to be responsible!  We must do our best.  And doing our best is not just doing what we feel like doing.  Doing our best is fulfilling life’s responsibilities even when it is not convenient.  Pay your bills, tell the truth, help others, put others before yourself, treat others the way you wish to be treated, and make God the center of all decisions.  Before we make a decision about anything we must stop and ponder on how this will please the Lord.  Our verse says that the Christian that fears the Lord will abide satisfied.  This means they will bask in the favor of God.  The Lord blesses those that are faithful to His commandments.  No, not just the Ten Commandments but the whole council of God!  Our verse ends with a warning.  The Christian who does not fear the Lord will endure much evil.  What a miserable life when we allow evil into our lives.  When we are irresponsible we open the spiritual hedge for evil to enter our home.  This then hits our marriage like a terrorist attack.  Tension will rise among husband and wife.  The children will be upset and unruly.  Everything we have will begin to crumble right before our eyes.  Dear friend, it pays to be responsible.  How hard is it to just do right?  Fear the Lord!  The fear of the Lord will reap a life and home of great respect, love, joy and happiness.  Determine to be responsible today and everyday.  Amen.

Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

We studied yesterday about the importance of being a responsible Christian.  Being responsible is next to godliness.  Irresponsibility can mar and possibly even ruin our testimony.  We must, must, must strive to make Jesus look good before the world.  I passed by a supposed minister’s home a while back and around his home it looked like a landfill.  Trash and junk everywhere.  I could barely see the house for so much trash.  Most likely, irresponsibility proves what is in the heart.  Our text verse for today commands that we conduct our life in a manner to please the Lord, to make the Lord look like The Lord before the world.  Our verse says we should do everything we do “heartily”… “as to the Lord”.  The word heartily means to do it from the spirit.  Wow, now that puts things in perspective.  The Greek word here means breath.  The spirit is always referred to as the breath of life.  In other words, the core of life, the real us or the depth of our life.  So our verse commands that we should do everything from the heart of our life, from the spirit of our inner being.  So my dear friend, responsibility is next to godliness.  How we conduct our life is an outward showing of our inner being.  Wow and whoa!  What kind of picture are we painting of our Lord Jesus?  The decisions we make, the appearance we have and many other areas of our life proves what we are within the core of our spiritual life.  Determine to do all as to the Lord.  Our life is for Him anyway.  We are not of ourselves but of the Lord and for the Lord.  The last part of our verse makes even another life distinction.  If we only have a good clean front to please men then it is useless.  Oh how many fakes could we name right now?!  So many present a church front that is a façade.  My friend, I want to be real… a real Christian, a real servant and a real ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Why be a fake when you can be a real Christian at heart?  Amen.

Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

We that are saved are children of God headed to the eternal home of God but living in this foreign world.  As we are representatives and workers of the Lord, many times we find ourselves being drug down by the things of this world.  It is vital that we guard ourselves from being drug away from the Christian life.  The world wishes to drag us away from godliness and into religion.  This is a downward spiral.  The Christian that is first dragged away from godliness into obligated religion will soon be engulfed in a worldly lifestyle.  How many Christians do we know today who are religious only?  They attend church out of obligation.  It will take very little excuse to get this person out of church attendance.  This person will have a weak prayer life and a slim study life.  As the old saying goes, this person is walking on thin ice.  A lake frozen over with thin ice is dangerous to tread upon as it could break through at any time and trap the walker beneath the deadly cold waters.  The Christian who has been drug away from godliness into obligated religion is walking on thin ice.  Eventually this person will step on an area that will take them under into deep, cold and dark sin.  Rarely does a person who falls through frozen ice survive.  Many die each year from falling through the ice of a frozen lake.  The detriment is that they cannot find the small hole they just fell through.  The surface all looks the same from beneath.  Dear friend, stay with the Lord, stay in the Word and walk in righteousness.  There is grave danger for the life that taunts sin.  Our text says it well.  Satan lurks in the shadows awaiting the opportunity to seduce us with sin.  I visited a home a while back and posted at the end of their driveway was a sign that read Beware of Dog.  I promise you, I entered with much caution.  I did not exit the car until the owner gave me permission.  As we enter the driveway of today there is a sign stating Beware of Satan.  My friend, enter with caution and attentiveness.  Wait upon the Lord before jumping out.  Only the Lord has total control over the enemy.  Stay holy today.  Determine to walk with God.  Amen.      

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
