I Will

Psalm 23:6 — Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I believe that every Christian ought to be joined to some visible church; that is his plain duty, according to the Scriptures. God’s people are not dogs, else they might go about one by one; but they are sheep, and therefore they should be in flocks.

— Charles Spurgeon 

The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ.

— C. S. Lewis 

What has the church done for me?

What WILL I do for God’s house?

If everyone in this church were just like me, what kind of church would this church be?

I will HONOR God’s house. 

Haggai 1:4 — You people are living in beautiful houses. But my temple is still just a heap of stones! It is time for you to do something about it!

I will SERVE God’s house. 

There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things.

— Dwight L. Moody

I will WORSHIP in God’s house. 

Psalm 5:7 — But by your great mercy, I can enter your house. I can worship in your holy Temple with fear and respect for you.

Psalm 122:1 — I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Romans 1 

24 People wanted only to do evil. So God left them and let them go their sinful way. And so they became completely immoral and used their bodies in shameful ways with each other. 

25 They traded the truth of God for a lie. They bowed down and worshiped the things God made instead of worshiping the God who made those things. He is the one who should be praised forever. Amen.

I will GIVE to God’s house. 

Money is not good or evil. 

It has no morals or intentions on its own. 

Money reflects the character of the user. 


Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

You don’t even have to push me…

I will DWELL in God’s house. 


2 Peter 3:16


Philippians 2 


2 Timothy 4



Acts 15 


2 Corinthians 11:22-29

1 Corinthians 15:58 — So, my dear brothers and sisters, stand strong. Don’t let anything change you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord. You know that your work in the Lord is never wasted.

Don’t let anything change you.

Scripture — stories of people who changed…

Give Yourselves

Never Wasted
