It’s Not Where You’ve Been…

It’s Where You’re Going!

The Prodigal Son

 

 

It’s Not What You Were…

It’s What You Are Now!

1 Cor. 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

 

 

It’s Not That You’ve Sinned…

It’s That Your Sins Are Forgiven!

Rom. 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Rom. 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Rom. 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

 

 

It’s Not What Others Say…

It’s What God Says!

Rom. 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

 

 

It’s Not What You’ve Left…

It’s What You’re Receiving!

Mark 10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

Mark 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,

Mark 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

 

 

 It’s Not Just That You Speak In Tongues…

It’s That You Show Love To Everyone!

1 Co 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

 

 

 It’s Not How Fast You Run…

It’s That You Finish The Race!

Eccl. 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift,

Matt. 10:22 …but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

 

 

 It’s Not That You Are A Servant Of God…

It’s That You Are Found Faithful!

Matt. 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

 

It’s Not That You Know…

It’s That You Do!

Jas. 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Jas. 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

 

 

It’s Not Just That You’re Living Holy…

It’s That You’re Ready For His Coming!

The Ten Virgins

 

 

It’s Not That You Believe…

It’s That You Receive!

Acts 19:2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

Acts 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.

Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

 

 

It’s Not That You Possess Spiritual Gifts…

It’s That You Have A Relationship With God!

Matt. 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Matt. 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Matt. 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
