The Race, Part 1
Series: (All)

Sunday Morning Service - Hope Worship Center Ashland City, TN.

Pastor Rick Walsh. December 30, 2018

Scripture for the Sermon can be found in: Hebrews 12:1, 1 Corinthians 9:24
 
Have you ever felt like you were in the wrong race? We are called to be in the race of life for Christ, not sit on the sidelines. We get aggravated and want to quit. We need to remember it is not over, until he returns.
 
Do you think that when we give our lives to God, and accept Christ into our lives that its happiness and easy going every day? Do you feel like the weight of the world is on you? Nothing seems to go right at all.
This is because we are Strong.
 
We need to pray, "Give us another day God so I can help someone." To God be the Glory. He is our strength. Let us put our faith, hope and work in him and finish the race strong.  Let's look forward to heaven.   He sets us in motion for the race we are suppose to run. 
 
When you slow down, check things out - are you weak? Is something wrong? Do you need prayer? God tells us - Get over yourself. It's not about you - it's about me. God has told you that you are a winner, so Get up, Get ready and finish this race. God has not returned so we still have to continue to move forward and reach others along the way. 
 
We have to keep training to get where we need to be. It's not easy to just show up and say, "Here I am!" 
WE have to remind ourselves that greater is He that is in me. It doesn't matter if you have quit, it matters that you get back up and keep going.  We have opportunities to win a soul for him.

    Pastor Rick Walsh
     
    How many of you said this year, "I want peace and good will?"  And then, how many of you started making lists of items, like new car, more money, less work hours?
     
    What does a gift mean to you?  We received the ultimate Gift, but do we know what that means?  
    Romans 5:15
    Ephesians 2:80
     
    Do we know what we need to do in order to obtain that gift?  Not by society's standards, but by God's?   To be naughty or nice for society is very different than what God would say. 
     
    We think if give to the needy, God will give us credit. We think if we straighten up our act, God will give us credit. We think if be a good person, God will give us credit.   I am not saying we shouldn't do good things, but we can't sacrifice ourselves by not understanding what it means to accept the Gift.

    What Are You Making Room For?

    December 9, 2018
     
    2 Kings 4:7
    What are you making room for?  God is always giving us the opportunity to do the right thing in life.  And he gives us chances all the time to do right. We have do-over's. Sometimes a lot of them!  And sometimes when we work with people - they will be mad and they want you to be mad with them.  And what we need to be is in the word of God.
