Cody Floate (CBSM/Sparkman Senior) finished up our KTL 2011 and Jeremiah series “REBUK’D” with a clear wrap up of the book and challenge for personal life change. His challenge was to accept God’s rebuke in your life so that you can be reconciled to relationship with Him and be restored. God took His people through that process in the times of Jeremiah, and He is seeking to do the same in our lives. Those who will not accept rebuke in their lives, show an unforgiving spirit and probably an unconverted heart. Accepting and repenting from rebuke is absolutely necessary for a right relationship with God. So check out this sermon, allow yourself to be rebuked of sin, and be restored in your relationship with Jesus.

Jacob Reed absolutely brought the funk while preaching God’s Word and pointing CBSM to Jesus last night! Jacob really challenged us on how to face our struggles head-on when following after Jesus. Here’s the deal…we will struggles. Its inevitable! Jeremiah internally, emotionally, and genuinely struggled when doing God’s call. Jesus struggled as well. Check out His intense, internal, and emotional struggle in the Garden of Matthew 26. If you’re NOT struggling, you might need a salvation check! Satan hates that we’re saved, Satan wants us to give up, and Satan wants us to stop living out God’s call on our lives for Jesus’ glory. So check out this message which will teach you all about how to face your struggles head-on and continue your call for Christ!

I remember being over at a buddy’s house when I heard he and his brother whispering.  I heard my friend saying, “Don’t do it.  It’s not worth it.”  But his brother left, and my friend was left there hanging his head.  Apparently, not only was my buddy’s brother a state-wide, all-star athlete and a straight “A” student, but he also could have any girl he wanted.  What they were whispering about was that a female friend of his called and asked him to come over because she was lonely and her parents weren’t home.  

2 Samuel 11 is a very similar scene with King David.  Just after being included in God’s eternal covenant of His kingdom and winning many war victories, David goes out on his roof and looks over the kingdom God has given him.  He spots a woman bathing, and keeps checking her out.  He asks some dude who she is, and he tells David her name, her father’s name, and her husband’s name.  David sends someone to get her like a lonely teenage guy texting a girl he’s been thinking about.  This is an OT “booty call”! They had sex together and both committed adultery on their spouses.  She went home and told David soon thereafter that she was pregnant by him.  Notice David’s deep sin right after God covenants with him.  David had others help him in his sin.  David is in deep!   Continue reading
