What's wrong with a little fun just just take one serious what's wrong with alcohol.
Just just know when to say when you just get a designated driver just be serious realů Let's go to the field again all across America today we see devious minds devious minds a very subtle thing because it devious mind is a mind that is couched. It's a masquerading mind, God gave them over happen immediately.
Nothing wrong with these vegetables. There was nothing wrong with that. But God was not willing to accept Cain's offering because it was not what God required across America today in this wonderful nation in which we live folks listen to me. There all across America that are saying to their sons and daughters. It's okay you you grow up just get over.
Don't worry about it. Show and have fun while you young Lyle get them. The line will get so what happened to him. What incentive do decaying folks.
It caused him to have a devious number two it caused him to become daily in his actions not only to become devious in his mind, but to become deeply in his actions. What happened after that is horrific. He killed his own brother. When this takes rain. They is the consequence. The Bible says that the wages of sin is that you know that the Bible tells us in Proverbs chapter 18 that has the to speak life and will in fact 18. The writer tells us what is is going to come out as a life or day can't tell you the number of people that I mean to say to me' I could just roll the clock back. This man became daily in his actions. It was a severe consequence in his case.
In this case, he went out and killed his brother. Can you imagine that Windows 7 in what come with us into the prisons folks and looking at the faces of a lot of these people out in the streets on the highways and the byways of life. What incentive do decaying that it caused him to become devious in his mind it caused him to become daily in his actions, but number three. It caused him to become deceitful in his honesty, God came to him and saved him trying. Where is your brother, and he immediately began to lie to God, folks. Just think about that. He began to lie to God limit to what happens when you make your vegetable your religion. False religion's breeze a person who will lie in the face of God himself, when the site gets a hold of a person's heart is going to be that relationship with God and what God says. But just in case.
I will lie my way. Even in his face.
The Bible says that Satan is the father of lies. Parents listen to your sons and daughters check out they honesty leave no stone unturned.
Never settle for what you don't know make actual business make actual business to know where they all what who they hanging around with Mike business plus run popular with your children. It doesn't trying to trip Bible tells us these were boys. This was the beginning, folks. These guys were just talking and one wouldn't listen to God's soon took over his life and caused him to become devious in these mind to become daily in his action and become deceitful in his honesty, but there was 1/4 consequence that was too hard to even talk about it caused him to become disconnected in his relationships, beginning) verse seven, two things happen decaying folks. Number one he became disconnected with his fellow man cannot just share with you today my friends I give off the question whether someone you know and love is trying to hide from God cannot tell you how to know just check their relationship with a fellow man, and in particular with a family number one and with fellow Christians. Number two's appearance here this if you got a teenager in your house, your son wrote his angry, hostile, quiet, deceitful hiding, not wanting to talk absolutely not wanting to go and be involved has no or little conversation and gravitates away from the church instead of toward alright so let's use an acid taste in this church.
Your kids an opportunity to be involved from crossfire Wednesday nights merge on Tuesday nights, Sunday school and worship services, mission trips, ski trips, Kentucky missions mirror image quieter Voyager, you name it. How you can do this you what condo everything.
I'm just how much interest was they on the part of your son or daughter in anything that involved their fellow man. You got it the lines out the one cylinder caused him to become disconnected with these fellow man. But ultimately, sin caused him to become disconnected from his faithful God folks, I'm going to show you the most horrendous verse in all of Scripture you want to see it.
Just look at verse 16. Out on anybody believe. Just look at verse 16 that doesn't make you weep.
So pain went out from the Lord's presence.
Lord Jesus, please don't let that happen to so pain went out from the Lord's presence. The lion got it your listing to Dr. Don Wilton our teacher here on The Encouraging Word. Please don't go away. He'll be back in just a moment to complete today's message on the roaring lion we interrupt because Dr. Wilson want you to know that this is not just a presentation.

He means forget and he was disconnected from his only means of peace disconnected from his only means of peace. You walk away from God you have no other way to be forgiven for what happens when the line get you. You have no other way to have peace. So here's here's what you can if you've heard nothing today. Parents, grandparents, moms that so you might say to me today with pasta. Just give me something to do three things. Number one be so for Peter save me so you know we usually associate that somehow with alcohol while that's quite okay. Be sober people lost me all the time why I am so and try alcohol me tell you why folks see what it does as well. I know what it does you want me to lift the moratorium in this church guarantee scores of people come and join us tomorrow, which is back with alcohol. You know they people all over the city will not join this church because we take a stand against alcohol said someone would like to make a motion pasta back give license sites. Okay, it's okay for our kids to grow up. It's okay for them to drink okay just doesn't matter. You know where they getting it from you that would be sober. It's not being used in relation to being drunk what God is saying here is make sure that you got the right mind intact.
Just think clearly.
Parents moms bed young people think clearly. Listen to what God say say what can I do. It's not a matter of just opening your eyes have the mind of Christ. Some of you might look at me today and say pasta you know a lot. I'm really praying for my husband about praying for my wife from a this for my son, my daughter God's word say is the right thinking in place, stop crying in a bucket.
Stop trying to tell God and listen to him, something you folks need to wake up you are setting your kids to the lion.
We are in a serious situation, folks. I pray for our school teachers.
You know my preference to teachers, not because of the kids, but because of the parents we met. We've cultivated a generation in America where not even teachers can stand up and say hey listen to me because hey listen to me's mommy and daddy are going to come and get all of the teacher for being too harsh on Wright. Can we just feel each other folks what's going on the sofa content type stuff is not a popularity contest this and this man's will was at stake. He had a devious mind.
He was dating. These actions deceitfully needs honestly before God and became disconnected with these family with God. One of the winged people want nothing to do with God. They immediately become so number to be alert at fetuses. Be alert. Be alert. That means when I kiss the pig lesson we started on the preschool you have never heard a creature school and scream like that down there. It was folks you couldn't hear. I said to myself this is going to do me serious damage.
My wife took one look at that price it will never kiss you again for me my whole life was in jeopardy.
Folks, when I looked at thing and looked at me and I said I'm about to kiss you and the pig said I called White that little workday means to be alert parents, open your eyes. That old devil is running circles around your kids keep them close to you people say to me all the time. Should I insist kids should be in church. Yes yes don't give them an option when my living under your roof because you know when you bring them you know you get your kidding ball in one of two things even when I don't what God does. And even then it's tough growing up in this world.
I'm one be sober number to be alert number three. Be decisive. Verse nine, the first Peter chapter 1. Be decisive, stand firm. Be decisive in your decision to accept Jesus Christ and be decisive in your decision to stand for Christ.
Be decisive. It's time for some of you to make a decision to give your hearts to Jesus. I want to invite you today to be decisive. I'm going invite everyone to anyone anyone within the sound of my voice be decisive, I present to you, Jesus. I invite you to give your life to Christ because when you give your heart to Jesus Christ and he comes into your parking lot. Jesus Christ does for you and for me what you and I find so hard to do for ourselves folks tell you something. It is hard enough bringing up children in today's world, let alone having to do it on our own. But when Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord Jesus gives you wisdom when he gives you grace and long suffering let you go back time and time again, he helps you to reach out and pick up these people we love so much. He teaches you the meaning of grace he shows you what can be done, their parents and people all across America today about worn out. I know you all know their mamas with broken hearts people to sign. I don't know if I can do it again.
I don't know whether I can keep going. You can do it when Jesus Christ is in your heart you will never leave you will never forsake you each of patient he shall strengthen his usual rock where would we be without Jesus, how many times do we not let God down folks, I would be I messed up so many times what I would've done without a mom and dad never gave up on me the times that I would in my hostility and anger. As a teenager, folks, you're looking at a teenager with everything at my disposal.
I was a downright disgrace.
I was one of those preachers kids that today in my adult hood going even imagine how my beloved father stood and put on some Sunday morning I coming in late night being out singing advance during all kinds of things out on the streets causing grief to my parents talking to them in such a rude and arrogant way to get those times without number. Come creeping in the morning while my mother and father were tossing and turning in bed wondering where this not hear it coming out of the bedroom and my mom and dad would be on mainly my mom and dad's don't give up mom's bed is wrong. So be alert decisive God can take the biggest pile of rubbish you've ever seen in your teens for evil to such powerful truth, no matter what the devil intends for evil God can turn good.
