"Fear is useless and Faith is priceless". These are words that can soothe the soul. Jesus said in several places of the bible "Fear Not". Why should we fear if we have "Faith" in Him. Recognizing our fears and putting them in God's hands will lighten our load of burdens. This will help you through this life if you practice it.
Be careful of what you have learned in Sunday School. The Bible says: "Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip." Have you let what you heard Jesus say slip through your memory? Your kids and grandkids need to hear what Jesus has said.
Do you know that God’s work is perfect. Everything that God does is perfect. Our work is wrought with flaws and mistakes, but His work is perfect. Even the best that man can do is imperfection. Take a sewing needle that looks so smooth and sleek. Put it under a microscope and adjust it until you can see the intricate detail of that needle. What will you find? It will look like a raggedy old pine stump with broken bark. Now, pick a rose off a bush and put one of its petals under that microscope. You will be amazed at the miniature world of design and delicacy because God’s work is perfect. He never makes a mistake. Do you feel like a mistake today? As I said, God does evrything perfect. You were created by HIM.
"Who can understand his errors? Cleanse Thou me from secret faults."
Have you ever heard anyone say, "I don't have to go to church to be a Christian"? Well, when it comes right down to it, many lay claim to Christianity but their hearts are far from God. So, do I still have to go to church to be a Christian? I believe in church attendance, but if your relationship with the Lord and with others is suffering, then you need to stay at home and get on your face before God. The church is a place to worship with others. How in the world can one worship when they are out of fellowship with Christ the Lord? Answer that one for me.
Sometimes a businessman will get very prosperous in his business--and at first it seems a good thing. He tells his wife, "Honey, you know how I couldn't give you much when we got married? Well, now I can." But soon the pursuit of a nice home and nice things consume him. A sadness descends upon his wife and children, and they lament, "Oh, Daddy...Oh, Husband...what we would give to just have you spend time with us." What tragedy, it would be if what you do for Jesus keeps you from Jesus. Stop the cycle today. If you know you're a workaholic, or pleasureaholic, stop it. If you know your walk is far from God, get it right, someone is watching you, and where are you leading them?
