Skeleton Sermon.  Put your own "SELF" into it.

Some Things That Jesus 
Will Not  Do Until We Do
 
By Evangelist Johnny Campbell      brojohnny@johnnythebaptist.org

The Bible teaches that God has all power and he is able to do all things.  But, we can limit the Holy One of Israel by not following His Instructions!

Here are just a few things that God says you have to do before He will.

(1) God will not forgive us until we forgive others

Read it yourself:: 

Matthew 6:14-15 (KJV) For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Ephesians 4:23  (KJV) And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even has Christ hath forgiven you.

Forgive----To give up resentment or the desire to punish.

Stop being angry---to cancel


(2) Jesus will not confess you before His Father until we confess Him before men.

Matthew 10:32-33 (KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

A. This confession is of a person (confess me)

B. This confession must be public (before men)

C. This confess results in a promise (I will confess you before My Father in Heaven)

This proves beyond any doubt that a person must be saved and confessing that he is saved to this world.  Sorry for all you fellas that confess that you have won thousands who never witness or go to church!  There needs to be a changed life!  Do you hear me?  I don't care what Jack or Bob has taught you!

(3) Jesus will not give unto you, until we give unto Him.

Luke 6:38 (KJV) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

You give respect.  You get respect!  You give love.  You get love!  You give money.  You get money!  Now, this is the answer as to why you're always broke.

 

(4)Jesus will not draw nigh unto you until you draw nigh to Him.

James 4:8 (KJV) Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
