You Didn't Build That! 4/9/17
You Didn't Build That! 4/9/17




John 3:30 (KJV)
30  He must increase, but I must decrease.  

The title of today's message was spoken by a former President and caused much angst among many people-

People offended because they felt like their hard work and noble intentions were being slighted.

But the Apostle Paul understood it:

1 Corinthians 3:5 (KJV)
5  Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?

WE, as Christians, are simply called to be "ministers."

MINISTERS-probably from an obsolete diako (to run  on errands; compare <G1377> (dioko)); an attendant , i.e. (genitive) a waiter (at table or in other menial duties);

specially a Christian
teacher and pastor (technically a deacon or deaconess ) :- deacon, minister, servant.

Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Ministers are SIMPLY called "to run on errands, an attendant, a waiter (at a table or in other MENIAL duties);

SPECIALLY a Christian teacher or PASTOR (note my special capitalization of PASTOR)!!!!"

Think about it for a second-do we thank a hammer or a shovel for all their hard work and noble intentions?

No, because they are merely TOOLS used by the Master!

Paul further explained:

1 Corinthians 3:6-7 (KJV)
6  I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.  

7  So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

To God be ALL the Glory!!!

Psalm 127:1 (KJV)
1
  Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.


Romans 13:8 (KJV)
8  Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.


" OWE NO MAN ANY THING!!!!"


If you are safe and warm today and have food to eat-


To God be ALL the Glory!!!


If you woke up this morning and your name is not in the obituary column-


To God be ALL the Glory!!!


If your heart is beating and you have a pulse-


To God be ALL the Glory!!!


Psalm 100:1-5 (KJV)  
 
1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.  

2  Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3
 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  


4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.  

5  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.


" EVERY good gift and EVERY perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights!!!!"


James 1:17 (KJV)
17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.


TODAY............................


Psalm 150:6 (KJV)
6  Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.  


WHY.................................


Psalm 100:3 (KJV)
3  Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  


CAN I GET AN AMEN!!??


GOD BLESS YOU TODAY!!
