"CRAWLING COMES FIRST"
Pastor Tony Sutton
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;

your heart is happy, and love your neighbor.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,

Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims,
abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas
they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's
sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
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.
faithful, friendly, and for real
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.
know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for
himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
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.
for the lost
Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is,
that they might be saved.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
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?
Friend: Would you let us know if this sermon has led you to the
Lord, inspired you to re-dedicate your life to the Lord, or simply
been a Blessing unto you?
