Now today's teaching was Dr. Don Wilton Christ as Lord and Savior by only one means and that's by repeating abuse and confessing that some to him giving your heart and life to Jesus. The only way you can go to hip is by giving your heart to Jesus. But you know when you give your heart to Jesus what you do for him is a mirror image. It is reflective of the Christ who lives in you and I commend you for that.
Our works are not the walk of our salvation.
They all the evidence of it.
You and I will want to serve others and make a difference in other people's lives because the Lord Jesus Christ has come into our hearts and lives in Iraq.
I just thank you for that.
Folks, this is what it's all about his yard so easy for those of us all across the world. Those of us who are part of the Lord's church so easy for us to just eventually sit down and just taken type and and I just thank you today. You know it's an amazing thing folks across this nation. I I cannot imagine the amount of giving that was given over the season of giving. Can you friends. I don't think anybody here today would want me to get up and just brag on America but I suppose I would fall into the category of a well-traveled person. Like many of you are being around the world continue. There is no more generous people than the American people don't stop, don't allow the enemy to get to you.don't let what you hear some people overseas say about us, get under your skin, don't ever close down on your generous heart and in the church this year and in the years to come. We continue to ask the Lord to help us just give it away. That's why we hear we just want to give it away and I'm grateful for your participation and I just want you to know that I love you and it is a very distinct honor to serve as your posturing to be alongside of you and to see what the Lord does in and through us and I am one of those people. I think this is going to be one of the greatest years ever. I really did sod like us to have just a brief time of prayer together and I want to pray for you today I want to pray for you and I will. I want to tell you why I want to pray for you.
Cannot tell you what I want to pray for you.
I want to pray first of all to thank the Lord for you. I just want to thank the Lord Jesus for you.
I really believe that God has his hand on many of you and so it's not time to sit back it's time to step because we haven't even begun to scratch the surface in the work that God is given to us is very significant and it's it's massive. I don't think we can possibly imagine accepting the site Lord just use us to make a difference in the lives of others. That's why want to pray for you. Number two.
I'm not a want to thank the Lord for you, but I want to pray for some of you today that you haven't got it yet. There's someone listening to me right now your heart is still close and you know who you are. You don't need me to tell you that right now you know exactly who you are. Your heart is still close enough folks listen to this.
Listen to me, my friend, you can spend a life doing all kinds of things.
But if your heart is close to the things of God, you got nothing. I want to pray that you would open your heart to the Lord Jesus.
Some of you need to trust him as your Savior and Lord you've never given your life to Christ and you know it in our country today. It is so easy to masquerade as a Christian.
This is the easiest nation in the world to give the appearance that you have of the relationship of the Lord, even through giving. But you know that you haven't done and as a result of that, you've got a thousand questions and I want to pray for you that God would answer your deepest questions today because he loves you and I want to pray for you because some of you are struggling so much.
I know you are. Many of you are very precious people and some of you being blessed so much. Just look at you, look at you look at what you've gotten look at where you live. Just think about the abundance of food folks that we've had the roads that we travel the motor because we drive the homes that many living and maybe you listening to me today and you know that you're surrounded but yet your heart is close to the things of God and you got questions. This is only one on sin. That is when you open your heart to the Lord Jesus, it's time to let go and I want to say, especially to some of you men who were looking at me today. I don't single out the man, but some of you men are big time business people and you're making all kinds of money and you're being blessed and you got families and everything but your heart is closed to the things of God and that cannot continue like you will hit I did in my friend, and it's time. This is a new day.
Give your children the new day. Your wife and new husband. Your business and you executive and Jesus Christ when he comes into your heart. He he comes inside your life, and he changes you from inside out and he doesn't take away from you. He just gives it all back to and couple overflowed with the blessings of his grace someone just pray for its prey to get heavenly father, thank you for the Lord Jesus Christ today we proclaim the name of the Lord in all the earth, we thank you that Jesus Christ came to this world. Born in Bethlehem died on the cross in Jerusalem was buried in a grave conquered sin and death and the grave left Allison right the stone graveyard did was raised by the power of God.
On the third day, appeared to over 500 then ascended to be seated at the right hand of the father.
Now praying for us because God loves us. We worship you today. Lord, I want to thank you. I take personal privilege today to just thank you for this scores and hundreds of thousands of people all across this land who love you and this season have just given of themselves.
Lord, they have been people standing in soup kitchens, serving meals, taking care of orphans going on mission trips packing up boxes of goods, loving others in the name of Jesus. Father today in the name of the Lord I thank you for these most precious giving people who are always there, seemingly denying themselves for the sake of others. Because of Jesus, and in the name of Jesus I bless them in the name of the Lord today not ask you father to just pour out your spirit upon such people as these fulfill their every need and desire, Lord, at the same time with so many others today with the husband with the wife or son or daughter with precious people. I pray for someone today worshiping at this very moment.
Who doesn't need another sermon they know they do not belong to Lord in my own city I am surrounded by people like that they belong to country clubs, churches, they are on school boards. They sit on the Council.
They are my friends and your friends. They are people who ride on the same bus. They live next door and I don't know Jesus.
They all jolly fine people, some of them Lord, all the very best. We consider them the salt of the earth. They are kind, generous, hospitable, openhearted, always there, but they don't know Jesus. And what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and yet lose his own soul father. Today we pray that by your spirit all across this land that people would come to know Jesus Christ who is lack eat turn now father as we open your word, speak to our hearts. We pray and may your name be glorified as we pray these things altogether. In Jesus name, amen. All right, I want you to open your Bibles this morning to the book of Romans and regained to be in chapter 3 just to begin, so I really want to encourage you to get a copy of God's word. That is what this is about. It's about God's encouraging word and Jesus Christ has an Encouraging Word just for you today I want to read a passage of Scripture for you and then I'm going to share something while the remarkable with you today that the Lord is put upon my heart as I made to speak to you about all in escapable questions for you. Escapable questions I guess what I'm about to tell you is whether you like it or not, you will never be able to tiptoe around these four questions by awful inescapable question that I have a lot of questions, you know that some of you been around me long enough you got a lot of Christians I know that because I've been around you long enough, but these awful inescapable question that I think as we face the new year we must provide the onset. I actually don't have the onset, but God does. Someone read to you in just to begin with. In Romans chapter 3 verse 10 as it is written, there is no one righteous, no not one.
There is not one person who understands, no one who seeks God. All people have turned away by have together become worthless. There is no one who does good, not even one. Their throats are open graves. Their tongues practice deceit, the poison of vipers is on their lips. Their mouths off of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood ruin and misery. Mark their ways and the way of peace they do not know there is no fear of God before their eyes, may the Lord write this word upon our hearts, one would think that we were reading the resume of much of these United States of American.
There is no fear of God before their eyes. I told you that you would say of me will pasta we know how many questions you have.
Because you're asking them all the time and then I say to you.

They are telling us that retail took a good turn for the better. Some of the economic indicators are looking better.
Economists seem to be. Maybe even just a little way a little more optimistic than what they were, this time a year ago and looks like the economy may improve the maybe more jobs, but people are saying what am I going to do in order to provide for my family, going to do that.
Where can I get a job.
