Once we are made believers, it is not time to set the cruise control on and coast in only doing good. Our old self is transformed into a new creation. And unlike before where we could ONLY do what our nature sinfully wanted us to do, what we desired to do; now we are given the ability to choose to follow God’s way or return to form and old patterns. Pastor John Samuel Barnett gives us what to do when we are tempted to sin.

A healthy believer does not just engage in intaking the things of God but also exhaling. Pastor John Samuel Barnett encourages us to grow by exhaling in prayer and witnessing to others about God moving in our lives.

Now that we have a way, among others, to help to combat the sin that we struggle with on a daily basis, how do we grow? Pastor John Samuel Barnett provides the way that we grow and that’s by feeding on and applying God’s Word in our lives. The Bible isn’t something that esoterically understood where we have to seek a guru and by attempting to not understand it we understand it. God’s Word is useful and applicable and knowable. We just have to be willing to put in the work to hear the voice of our Creator echoing, daily, in His Word.

Coming out of the Lord’s Day where we experience fellowship with other believers in the shared experience in worshiping our God, we can launch off that to the application of what we have learned, shared, and exalted. Christians aren’t located in a vacuum for six days and alone unless in a church building, as Pastor John Samuel Barnett provides in today’s video, believers are able to encourage each other. Today’s video shows us how to do so.

This week we looked at the fact that God uses means to carry out His sovereign will. This week’s Q&A with Pastor John Samuel Barnett answers the question, “Did Jesus have to die on the cross or was there other ways He could have? A very interesting question; and with God’s Word, a very interesting answer.

God’s people do not fight against the world alone. The New Testament from the Gospels through Revelation talk about the Church needing to get along with itself and build itself up. Why? Well, one of the reasons is that the Church is the means by which God gets His message to the people of the world. We believers can take confidence that it is solely in God’s power to save. However, we should be stirred to action since God enters into an amazing relationship with us in giving us this amazing blessing to go into the whole world and proclaim His message.

Pastor John Samuel Barnett shows us that God does indeed use our voices to build His Church.

One of the rules of electricity is that it takes the path of least resistance. That’s how most people operate too. However, when God changes the heart of the sinner to the heart of the sinner saved by grace, we take a different path. The path IS hard because it is us against moving against what the rest of the world is doing. To the believer, we are to no longer to live a life guided by fear but by faith. That is the message Pastor John Samuel Barnett brings us today.

There was an older Bible adventures video game where one of the levels had you playing as David facing off against Goliath. The goal was to time the sling at the right time to send the rock at Goliath and win. The game, however, must have been Calvinistic in theology, because whatever location you released the stone it would find its intended target. The message stating that God is all-powerful and was able to direct the stone at Goliath would always appear.

Today, Pastor John Samuel Barnett gives us the great news that God’s Word always works and we can always rely on Him. Why? Because God is all-powerful and is able to direct His stones.

This week we looked at trusting in God who provides us both perfect peace and faith. We are to trust in Him and not of the things of this world.

One of those ways, is by trusting that God will provide and when He does to provide for His Church. However, are Christians suppose to tithe (give 10%) or can we give to other places? Pastor John Samuel Barnett gives us the answer in this week’s Q&A.
