People will expect you to go along with them regardless of whether it is right or not. The pressure to comply to maintain social status is enormous. The day you decide to do what is right rather than what the crowd wants to do will be the day they won't applaud.

Salvation is free. Jesus truly paid it all. However, sanctification requires letting the Spirit work on and in us. That requires some work. In fact, it requires a great deal of practice to get it right. We don't work for our salvation but our salvation does indeed work.

Sometimes God takes you places that you didn't plan to go. That's what He did when I was preparing this sermon. He led me to understand that the pain some people have experienced in their past is keeping them from walking with Him. God doesn't just want us to turn over the good things to Him. He wants the bad things as well. This sermon was preached during as Hurricane Matthew was blowing outside. There were less than a 100 people in the sanctuary on this morning. Maybe you missed it too. I believe God wants you to hear it.

Age has nothing to do with spiritual growth if the person chooses to have a superficial faith. Faith should enable the person to weather the storms of life, make godly decisions and find meaning in their lives. Some Christians never get there. This message encourages everyone to grow up.
