I met my cohost Breanna Michael Paul and I left some light on Mormonism to be brighter than we were told it would be doing is for discussions about our journeys in the Mormon to Jesus shows and should never not just enjoy sharing network. This is Truth Network welcome to man brought you by TA W. CM is talking and walking Christian men's ministry were there devoted to breaking down the walls of race and accommodation challenging men to take their God assigned as our host will Hardy and Roy Jones Junior a black eye and a white man talk radio back Roy and it just seems like a week lot by the literary club year, literally and figuratively. But is is good because you know we last week we were talking about fear.

We will talk about being bold.

You know, how do we be bold and earlier in the.

The talk we were saying how there is a healthy fear of God and in God. There are benefits to fearing God, but not in the sense of the way Satan wants you to be afraid. A healthy fear of God. Roy is referencing who God is.

That's why I never liked the term when someone would say Rev. Hardy. I never liked the term because I think that Rev. should be reserved for God that he's the only one that we should reference you know in all of our daily tasks because of who he is.

He's the one that should be put on a pedestal and we should glorify him and magnify his name will existing in today's time we do exactly opposite speaking worldwide right to his name in vain. So it's allowed to be portrayed on TV, in vain.

And that's that's good. Speak to that will because sometimes I think we feel really discuss and recognize the holiness of the father.

The true holiness and two-point reverence of the father is a healthy fear is good.

We talked about the your we were children healthy for your parents. It helps set up the right morals in your life and I think that's part of what was seen as a problem today. There are no moral standards. By any measure, write anything if it feels good do it if it's if it's other than killing somebody seem to be anything goes in your we talked in the past authorities put in place for what to to manage to govern the MRO to govern the unrighteous, not the government more the government like to serve. We have no Lord, we don't. Do you want, not doing the work so and so healthy fear is goodwill. Let's talk what that looks like and not in a person's life as a believer. What is a healthy fear of God look like in terms of their habits, what their walk looks like it is with the healthy persons can help you forgot was that walk quickly will well let me let me give you the word of God Roy because we can't ever go wrong with the word of God. So in Proverbs chapter 1 and verse seven it says the fear of the Lord is the beginning beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

So see in Proverbs. There's there's always the positive and negative for what someone would say that you and the gang you're stepping outside the box, but there there's always a contrasts when you read many verses that's in Proverbs. So if you have a healthy fear of the Lord, according to Proverbs 1 and seven then that's the beginning of you.

Understanding who God is and but a individual who is a fool. He's going to despise who God is. So therefore he's going to wander. He's going to work outside of God's will because he don't know God he's going to continue to do those things that he think is right. And remember, again in Proverbs chapter 14 in verse 12. Know God said that there is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end thereof is the way of death safe so so everybody got their own version of what seem right. Well, I never killed anybody, so why should I go, I have person where there's always doing good for others.

So NC bad is relative to how you think bad is this right you see the Scripture tells is not even one righteous, no not one in a course that's Romans chapter 3 verses 10 through 18. He goes down the list there there is none that do good. There is a we all become unprofitable NC so when when we don't know God, that's who we are before we came to know him so that goes back to the healthy fear in order to have a healthy fear want two things has to have either need to have knowledge studying or you have knowledge from discipline, exactly. So which do you prefer, obviously it's better to learn and haven't healthy fear and understanding of God by your reading and your meditation in him. The Holy Spirit speaking in your life as opposed to as we talked about last week not dying to self and having discipline be your for your creator or your fear educator if you will write absolutely and see in the war and the word of God. Roy will actually it will, it will add years to your life.

In the end that be, and because peace resides in your life right and then you learn how to manage through life. Well, now I've I think that that advert because the diverse is our Proverbs chapter 10 and verse 27 where where it says they the fear of the Lord prolongs life, but the years of the wicked are shortened.

So if if I continue in sin, then that verse, the word of God is saying that you going to cut your life short then what it would have normally been. If you would be serving the Lord. So if we serve God. God is going to add years to your life. He's going he's going to give you more time and thinking about it is Roy is we don't know God is adding more time to ally because we don't know when we go to depart is like he knows what I say. It is also so if we if we live a long and healthy life. They will know. Praise God that there there must be something that I did. Along the way to recognize that because I was faithful to God, he gave me more years than I really deserved.

Verse 28, right behind when you just assured will the prospect of the righteousness joy with the hopes of the wicked come to nothing. A man so now back to last week's discussion about finding joy right in the midst of perseverance and persecution you from enjoying James 125. We talked about. So here joy is one of the outputs right. The prospect of righteousness, joy serving and not happiness but joy and joy is what carries you through Windows motion swing up and down. Joy is everlasting to everlasting or everlasting where happiness is temporary and then in verse 30 will the righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land well and a course if a person understands truly where they are in Jesus Christ, that the spirit of discernment will always let you know when you are not centered in Jesus and if you if you're walking the road of despair you know and and your crossing over the line like a man who is intoxicated behind the wheel of an automobile you know you just kind of wavering to the right or to the left and you have no stability folks and hit it out of the Proverbs lightly get into chapter 10 is a go back up to some of the Scriptures as were sitting here talking today and in that verse 21 the lips of the righteous nurse many, but fools die for lack of sense, indeed, has, self-explanatory, and held the back of the 31 from the mouth of the righteous comes the fruit of wisdom with a perverse tongue will be silenced and the lips of the righteous know what fonts flavor with the mouth of the wicked. Only what is perverse and you know that I think that, ties into Proverbs 16 into Roy that says you know all the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes, but God ways your motive, he ways the spirit of man. So seat with. We can't look at us the spirit of the man we can we can.

I can see your spirit. You can see my spirit, we see the results of what the spiritual realm is doing to a person like we talked about if they go into depression because they are not centering their life on Jesus Christ. Or, you know they have may have all this conflict that's going on in their life and they don't really know what to do. They don't know what a turn, so will they do, they start turning to the world.

Oh, I guess I gotta go to the psychiatrist I got to go to the sociologist, you know, because I just feel like I just they can help me. I gotta go to the borrower to lead exactly but the medicine cabinet overlords go to the corner and by the drug.

This right you know to try and help or suppress something that only God can get rid of always like to build around your reference. Within 16 36 commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish little for the Lord works out everything to its proper end, even the wicked for David to set an exact close means we need to be righteous.

We need to be ever healthy for your respect for father, a man, because without God we we become wandering waves we become individuals who really have no sense of direction, except you know that which we have gained from the world which is only temporary by an endless talk about it or if if our Gordon endgame is that were making disciples and creating building the kingdom right essentially if word for wavering and were not living it out in the week uses saying, but if people are sin in our life out the words we say really mean nothing, and that therefore we're impacting the kingdom in the negative sense in that were not walking the walk and were not walking the talk so therefore look at the negative impact of collateral damage or creating rounds will the CEO think back to self.

If we take her eyes off himself. We get back to doing things about others and walking out will building the kingdom and will truly make an impact that the get something pivotal root recognizes my failure to do the right thing in my failure to respect my father and live it out properly in text a lot of people that I may never even see that are watching to see if I really real.

In this journey, a man Roy because it our lives have everything that God has for us. He's already given us and all we gotta do is live it out somehow to do Roy's is live it out because thy kingdom come, where on earth as it already has been happening in heaven, or has already happened at did he not, did he not say on overcoming up on the brakes did he not say that that we that he knew us before the foundation of the world over and Ephesians where we start reading that you know that we are all righteous in his sight because what Jesus Christ did what he knew us before the foundation of the world on the for knitted and her mother exact TA W CM and would love to have you join their community of men for breakfast every first and third Friday of every month and Bible discussions and fellowship at the best breakfast in town meeting location is at their voracious poster First Christian Church encouraged 1130 N.

Welcome back to man talk radio will before the break had a really nice discussion about Scripture and just basically our walking something out on a regular basis and therefore not walking it out they were impacting people rounds recruit collateral damage.

We may never know, and tool for the following system should have done here versus what you did. A man Roy and you know all of those who are listening, you know what you are not doing for Jesus, you know, we don't have to sit here and tell you we don't have to force feed you.

You know exactly where you are in Jesus Christ. You know the things some of the things that you might be doing that you should stop doing and the only way you could stop doing this is let God replace all of those thoughts that are given to you from the spiritual ramp replace those with the word of God replace those with thoughts that the Holy Spirit gives you on on going out and and speaking to someone about who Jesus is going out in ministering the gospel. Just brighten someone's day. Just today Roy. I was in food line and I was shopping and lady behind the counter. She said she said you know now I'm I'm I'm going to scan your roles and I'm a put them in your bag, and I don't make sure they don't get smashed and I said okay you know once I got on. She said because you know now you can you can go home and blame it on me if you want to us in about what I do that I said well I blame it on on you. She said well you know that the person who you might speak to they not going to know me anyway. I said well they know where you work so they can come up your bassinet would be the right thing to do and she said you know not too many people will do that and I said well there's a difference in me and see that open up the door right there. Open up the door of a conversation so I talked a little bit about Jesus course there was people who will come in behind me is when I talk fast you know but but I said you know if you if you're not feeling well and I could just God. It sense that she she was dark as she was working and soda hunched over the cash register and he is just sense that she was having a bad day one and when the Holy Spirit spoke game in words and when she left she said with thank you, thank you for that spoken to her. I really appreciate it and I said God to you. Be the glory because all I was there is the plexi it's interesting when we have those opportunities. It doesn't take much snow to bring live somebody up out of the gutter out of this third. So far down and you never know what's going on. The 7000. He reminds ourselves that we have a tough interaction with the clerk of the store. Serve at a restaurant or even her boss is right sometimes or everybody has a day of those moments. I don't think I ever see you have one of those days will because I guess that they's comments on a lot. Had a good job. I've had them in more ways than one.

Think we all have no evidence in process. It did great part about being a follower of Christ. He understands all of her shortcomings in all the failures he loves us and I guess that's the thing that we need a reminder list is if you're with us today, pause for just a moment and just imagine, close your eyes and just look amazing guys wrapped his arms around her in this moment until it's all going to be okay.

There is a great greater plan for you. There is a greater reward for you know how much he loves you. If you can't understand through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and what he did for us disclosure us for more than just imagine and reference on until and how much he loves her how proud he is of your about what you've done matter where you fill still closer is never too late. Haven't made a commitment listen to our show today God's calling home. Yes Roy is he's calling calling you to him is what he's doing. You know he's speaking to you right now and's and saying to you why are you putting this off. How many opportunities did the Lord save you from natural death. You know I put that to our congregation. Roy I said there there are times that all of us in here probably should have passed away physically, but God did something behind the scenes that we will never know about because instead of us turning right, we turn left or we turn left instead of right so and he prevented that thing from happening that I was waiting on the other any answer. You know so when when you consider all of the things you cannot see in a lot of these things are going to be made known. Once we leave your boy a man in a you and I talked about that and just into our lives. We talked off of the air, and even think we should want to only about were God. With that, we knew God.

God's hand or the Angels. Her sexiness took us out of harms way and or saved us when we were in harm's way that we knew and that those are things marked on her memory and walked to the hearts those that we never knew about 2.0 goes into some this could be quite amazing. And you know I just wanted I will share a little bit of that.

You know that the time that I should not have been sitting here talking with you today. I was on my way from work I was I was coming up on where Interstate 85 and 40 merge together death Valley.

It yes Anita just started to rain and all of a sudden merging onto the from 85 and 40 merging together right there that Murch, a car came over actually was an SUV came over and the truck that was in front of me was a pickup truck and I had to turn my wheel really sharp to avoid hitting this individual and it seems like where we didn't seem like it was the Lord just protecting me because my vehicle. It was push Roy is the only way I can describe it was pushed to the side to where I did not hit this truck and I just ended up on the curb right there where you exit to go to Randall Munroe that I lightly right there.

I went right up on the curve and everything was and I just sat there with my hands clenched on the steering wheel just thanking God, thanking God, thanking God, thank God, and any fact no one had an accident and it should've been one that's amazing, will should think us here before similar situation happened to run on 40 there were come up on the terminal 68 of 40 and there by physics standards. I should've been out in the middle of all the traffic it was 8 o'clock in the morning, bumper-to-bumper tractor-trailers.

These five lanes across their in the if I had come out ahead folks. I broke traction in the business of the physics behind it a little.

He should just grab she told me right out into the middle traffic in a broke traction in this old pickup truck. I was driving spun the 180 and God dispersed me back inside the ramp. It was just know if there's no physical explanation for other than God had his hand on while in not the same thing. I started the metal mind sharing with you started the truck back up turnaround went headed east on 40 and not started crying when I realized what God had just done a man in the your folks is real. Our father's will is his coverage, Israel has protections real if your listing today in your you're just in the middle of the storm just know he's right there with you. If you haven't asked me to heart as come into your heart, as he will. This this wash over you with the peace that is unimaginable stress on the mantle and each one of you that's listening. You have a story just like Roy and I share should do and if you don't have one, you will get one more you know of someone who had one story just like that and you think about.

You should not be sitting here today. You should not be eating or driving or doing anything, but you should be 6 feet under. Just like Roy and I should have been, but because of the protection of God's love toward us, and this is how much God loves you because you are not going to leave this life until you have finished the work that God has for you to do this is why this is why when Paul got shipwrecked and he put his reached his hand down and a viper attached onto his hand and in the men who were around him were looking at him like this man supposed to die, and all he did the word of God says he shook it off into the fire and I kept looking at him like he he supposed to fall dead right now but see his mission was not complete. Roy wasn't complete and so just like Paul.

We're not going to check out. Of this life until we have done all in which God a call for us to do and that is if you're following Christ. You can bank on the absoluteness and absolutely we we talk that quite often with other men in that because we have all ages say we say listen, if you're still here. The journey is not done, God is not finished with you to still work to be done no matter for 80 years older 15 over 20 years old and be mindful that folks for listing today in your following Christ. He's not finished. He's got more for you to do and we know what that is right.

We know she was to rebuild the kingdom of making disciples of the nation and loving ever a man Roy cousin again in second Corinthians chapter 10 God blesses through the apostle Paul to the Corinthians to say the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, they're not fleshly but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds and casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. This is what you at war with but seek God can cast these things that he can cast these thoughts away thoughts that you have and that you don't want him God can cast these things away. He can pull them down because only by his word you a a man once gradually with Psalm 27, one of the Lord is my life and my salvation whom shall Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall be referred we have nothing to be afraid, Roy, and the only fear we need to have his reverential fear in God knowing who he is what he's capable of doing.

Is it healthy fear we've been talking so don't be afraid to be fearful perspective.

Father start chasing him with all your heart and mind just challenge yourself is closing up today.
