"CRAWLING COMES FIRST"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

As a baby learns to crawl, then to pull up and stand, so shall we as Christians. Then we can walk, after that we can run, but crawling comes first. Before we can be great Warriors for CHRIST we must first be a good;

PERSON = good morals, lose the attitude (moody), fax your face and tell it your heart is happy, and love your neighbor.
2Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
1Pe 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
1Pe 2:12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
1Pe 2:13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
You know, so many think that they can live like they want to at home and become a great Christian when needed, but it can't be hid forever. Our true colors will shine through. We must live good morals at home as well as everywhere else. You can't cuss the kids, kick the cat, lie, cheat and steal our way through life thinking that when we stand in church and sing "OH HOW I LOVE JESUS" that somehow fixes everything. We can't come to church with an attitude (a devil spirit about us-hatred,jealosy,strife,etc...) and think that GOD is going to work wonders in our lives. We can't be moody and be GODLY!!! And for crying out loud, if you are happy inside, fax you face and let it know!!! It is no wonder people don't want salvation, they think it is a sickness. It's appears to be killing some, well at least by the facial expressions, it looks that way.
CHURCH MEMBER = faithful, friendly, and for real
Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Psalms 4:3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
Now I know someone is already saying, I don't have to be a member of a local church to be a good Christian. I have one question. ARE YOU FAITHFUL TO GOD'S HOUSE? I rest my case!!! We need to be faithful to assembly, we must show ourselves friendly and most of all we need to be real. You know, practice what we preach, walk the talk, put up or shut up, be what you say you are!!! One guy told me that he didn't have to go to church to live right (Hebrews 10:25), my reply was, why don't you then? This guy did not live right, he cursed, made lewd references to women and so on. Maybe my view on living right and his was different, but nevertheless you can't live like hell and think that you are GODLY.
WITNESS = desire for the lost
Rom 10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
This day in time we don't have any time to waste. People are dying everywhere without JESUS. satan has this world thinking they are all right, it's a lie straight from hell!!! We are living in the last days, our people don't have forever and if we continue to set around they will die without JESUS. WHERE ARE YOUR TREASURES TODAY?
