Bro. James encourages us to use God's tools to evaluate our lives instead of our own minds. King Saul and King David each experienced failures when they used their own minds to justify their actions. It is dangerous to use "introspection", defined as using our mind to evaluate our actions, rather than using God's Word to examine ourselves. 

Scriptures referenced: II Peter 1:20, Psalms 19:12, Psalms 90:8, I Cor. 11:26 - 29, Jeremiah 17:5 - 10, I John 3:20 - 22

Bro. James speaks that we need a personal witness in our soul so that we move and act as God directs, not according to our own motivation, like Moses and Noah. 

Scriptures referenced: John 13:35, John 14, I Cor 12:13, Hebrews 11:8, I John 5

Bro. James explains how we need to explore and seek out greater depths with God, as the Dannites sought out their inheritance in Judges 18:1 - 10.  If we are wanting a deeper spiritual relationship with God, we will need to risk our natural comfort and earnestly seek out God's purpose and will in our life.  Bro. James recalls Bro. Marty's story about a football fan's enthusiasm for their favorite team (located in sermon "Enthusiasm" at minute 6:45) - how much more should we be actively seeking out God's depths? Have desire, humility, & God will lead you. 

Scriptures referenced: Judges 18:1 - 10, Joshua 3:4, Exodus 33:12 - 14, Isaiah 48:17, Proverbs 9:5 - 6, Psalms 85:12 - 13, Psalms 32: 8, Psalms 25:15

Bro. James explores how God is the source of strength - we must only yield our will to Him.  Nothing is impossible with God; He has a plan & a place in His Kingdom for every soul.  

Scriptures referenced: Isaiah 40:28, Matthew 12:20, Deut 33:25, Phil 4:13, Joshua 1:1, Romans 5:6

Imagine Mary's feelings as she watched Jesus die on the cross. Bro. James Bell asks "Did she think when Jesus was born that this would be God's plan?" When we are at those points of confusion, when events are unfolding contrary to what we expected, we need to look to God who knows and sees all. We need to be cautious how we pray - sometimes we ask for our will to be done, rather than God's. How long does it take for us to recognize God's hand in our difficult situations? Our spiritual man can look beyond the current physical situations. When we lean to our "natural man" understanding, we set ourselves up for a fall. 

Scriptures referenced: Psalms 116, Matthew 1:18, John 19, Matthew 26:26-56, I Cor 10:14, Luke 24:15-21, Proverbs 24:10; Romans 8:35-39

Bro. James explains how God desires for us to consecrate our whole heart, our whole life, to Him. That's why He gave His all, including His Son, to make it possible for us to love Him. "Since Jesus gave His life for me, should I not give Him mine?" The heart is where the affection is. Once our heart is consecrated and sanctified, God can lead us onto perfection. 

Scriptures referenced include Exodus 32:29, Proverbs 23:26, I Thess 5:23, Romans 12:1, Hebrews 6:1; Romans 5:1

Bro. James talks about being transformed by Jesus Christ.  The congregation sings "There is a Foundation".  Referencing Romans 12:2  "…be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…", Bro. James progresses to the thought of being "converted" and "becoming a new creature". It's essential that God cleanses us; we can't clean ourselves with good works and morality.  We can clean the outside of our body, but only God can cleanse our soul. Other scriptures mentioned: Matthew 18:3, Acts 3:19, Titus 3:5, John 3:7, I Peter 1:22-25.

Bro. James explores Paul's message to the Philippians (4:14 - 4:17) "I desire fruit that may abound to your account". Jesus' message regarding "the true vine" referenced (John 15).  The traits of the palm tree are mentioned - leaves shaped to withstand wind and bark damage does not kill the palm tree because nourishment is conveyed from roots to tree through the center of the tree rather than the bark. We can flourish, as a palm tree, by relying on the Lord's grace and not become damaged by our carnal environment. Ohm's Law mentioned along with John 3:30 - He must increase; I must decrease. Other scriptures mentioned: Colossians 1:10, Psalms 92:12, Matthew 13:8, Galatians 5:25.

Bro. Marty encourages the congregation to bring inspiration to church services.  Unlike Jacob's sons during the famine that were sitting around waiting for someone to go to Egypt to get corn, we need to each contribute our little part to God's service and all will be ministered to. Similar to a potluck dinner, small contributions from all add up to a full dinner for all.  Bro. Marty marvels at the enthusiasm of OU Sooner football fans that arrive hours before the game starts and wonders how inspired worship services can be if members display that same enthusiasm.  Bro. Marty also recalls the story of the Doolittle Raid in World War II.
