Your Answer to Worry

What are you concerned about:

Your job: Losing it or finding one.

A son or daughter who is headed down  the wrong road in life.

Your parents getting a divorce.

Not being able to pay your bills this month.

Your health.

Your grade at school.

There are many things in the world to worry about. Below is video sermon on how Jesus told us to handle worry. Below that  is the printed copy of the sermon. I hope it will bless you.

There are many things in the world to worry about.

Matthew 6;25-33

This is telling us not to worry but why.. the bible doesn’t tell us bad things won’t happen in this world because bad things do happen.

  1. God loves us. It tells us in Romans chapter 8 that nothing can separate us from the love which is in Jesus. God may not always take away our problems but he will love us while we go through them and help us handle them.
  2. Worry doesn’t help. Worry is like a walking chair it will give you something to do but won’t take you anywhere. I believe a main reason some people get ill is because they get too stress out with worry.
  3. God will meet your needs. If you have a need which is not the same as a want God will meet it we are told in Philippians. God takes care of the birds so he will take care of us. So often we think of where we can get help and that is understandable but at times we just need to trust the Lord to meet our need.
  4. Last of all we need to do what it says here in verse 33. hearing this verse is what brought coach Tom Landry of the Dallas cowboys to faith in Christ until then he had just been a church goer instead of a true follower of Jesus.

Heaven, Hell,Purgatory and God’s word

Here is a video sermon I did last week about there being a third place your soul could end up when your life is over on this earth. Below the video is some of the written copy of that sermon.

Today we are going to look at the doctrine of there being a third possible place you could go when your life on earth is over.

 Purgatory.  Now I have friends and family who follow a faith which teaches this. I have a lot of respect for different people who teach this doctrine  I believe the Bible teaches that there are only two possible places you will go when your body dies and that is heaven or hell. There is no in between or waiting place.

Lets look at what the Bible says because I can be wrong, your pastor or priest or spiritual leader may be wrong at times  but the Bible is always right.

John 14;1-6

So why is there no purgatory.

  1. God’s message  brought through and by his son Jesus showed us the way to heaven.  No where in the Bible  does Jesus teach there is some waiting place . in fact to the one thief   who was crucified  with him who  came to faith in God, Jesus said to him  today you will be with me in  Paradise.
  2. If there is a purgatory why should anyone put their faith in Jesus  and repent of their sins while they are living .You will always have a chance in the next life.
  3. Purgatory takes away the grace of God and puts it back on man’s works. The Bible  teaches it is by the grace of God through faith and not one’s works that anyone is made right with God.  Those who teach there is a purgatory also teach people can pray  you out of there after you die. It takes the focus off of Jesus and implies salvation is about man’s works.
  4.  Heb. 9:27 When you die you face God. Those who have put their faith in Jesus  and welcomed into heaven. Those who have rejected Jesus  are condemned to hell.

There is only Heaven and Hell after this life. It is a matter of life and death that you put your faith in Jesus. Heaven or Hell are your only choices after this life. Your choice is based on if you know Jesus. Please put your faith in him.
