""WHAT WILL YOU LEAVE BEHIND""
by Pastor Tony Sutton

Mat 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth:
Mat 5:14 Ye are the light of the world.
Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
WE FIND IN THE 5TH CHAPTER THAT JESUS SAID THAT WE ARE THE LIGHT AND THE SALT AND THAT NOT ONLY OUR ACTIONS, BUT OUR THOUGHTS ALSO CAN HINDER OUR TESTIMONY.
Mat 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye:
Mat 6:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
Mat 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters:
Mat 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
JESUS TEACHES US HOW TO GIVE, PRAY AND FAST, HE ALSO TELLS US WHERE TO LAY OUR TREASURES UP AT. WE FIND HERE THAT WE CAN NOT SERVE TWO MASTERS. WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING IN OURSELVES BUT ALL THINGS ARE THROUGH CHRIST, AND IF WE WILL SEEK HIM FIRST ALL THESE THINGS THAT WE NEED WILL BE ADDED TO US.
Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
CHRIST INSTRUCTS THAT WE SHOULD NOT JUDGE, FOR WITH THAT JUDGMENT, WE SHALL BE JUDGED. HE ALSO TELLS OF WHAT KIND OF FATHER WE HAVE. HE SAID TO ASK, TO SEEK, TO KNOCK, THEN WE WILL GET, FIND AND IT WILL BE OPENED TO US. THEN AT LAST WE FIND THAT JESUS WARNS AGAINST FALSE PROPHETS. HE TELLS US THAT WE WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. THE QUESTIONS I ASK ARE, WHAT KIND OF FRUITS DO YOU BARE? WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS WORLD WILL YOU CONTINUE TO BARE FRUITS? THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT WAS FOR A REASON. JESUS PREACHED THESE THINGS TO HELP US IN OUR DAILY WALK. OUR LIVES DO NOT GO UNNOTICED. REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF OUR LIVES, WHETHER GOOD OR BAD, WE STILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THIS WORLD AND THE PEOPLE IN IT. MY PRAYER IS THAT EVEN AFTER MY DEPARTURE I CAN STILL BE REMEMBERED FOR MY LOVE FOR CHRIST AND BE A LIGHT TO SOME LOST SOUL.
