Are You Actually On Fire For the Truth?

Sunday October 14, 2018

Pastor Jen Ropp mentions for us to have a greater desire for the truth. She challenges us with a couple of questions. Are you actually on fire for the truth? Are you a lover for God’s truth? The truth of the word will save you, it will protect you. Pastor Jen read out of 1 Peter 1:22 and John 8Joshua 1:8, meditate on the truth and become single minded. John 14:6, Jesus is the truth. John 17:17, Jesus is truth, God’s word is truth. John 18::37, to testify the truth. Examine what you believe in and question why you believe it. We should always be pressing in.  2 Timothy 2:15. the rightly dividing, there is also the wrongly diving. Romans 1:8 and 2 Peter 3:16, twisting the truth.  Twisted you don’t just make up a doctrine when you don’t understand something. Pastor Jen read out of 2 Timothy 4:3-5, people will become lovers of themselves and not the truth. You want to be focused, check your heart, and question what your motive is. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-15, they refused to believe the truth. Some believed and were saved. Changing mindsets. Paul reasoned and spoke boldly. You have the freedom to believe whatever you want but, it’s not the truth. Ask yourself what am I believing right now that needs adjustment? Do you love something so much that you can make that switch? Proverbs 22:23, it will cost you something. There is a price for following the truth. New things to embrace, new things to pick up. You got to make the choice. Do you want to be a lover of truth. 1). There is a price 2). Humble and be able to receive, correct, and make changes 3). Recognize the lack of love for truth. If the truth has cost you nothing, have you bought it? A lover of truth is a doer of the word. John 8:31-32, if you abide in Him. If you want to be more free then you need to get more of His word!

Tithe Message:
Tithe is returning to the Lord, it is not sowing and reaping. 1 Kings 17:2, Elijah stood before the king after the brook dried up. As Americans we like to be prepared. 1 Kings 17:8, the widow saw that he was a man of G and gives what she has. Stay soft and pliable to the Lord.
