09/16/2018 Chosen - Part 4
1 Corinthians, Deuteronomy – Chosen – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
God wants to use you to change people's lives. To be fit to be used by God, we have to love ourselves, we have to develop ourselves and we have to give of ourselves.
09/09/2018 Chosen - Part 3
1 Corinthians, 2 Timothy, Deuteronomy, Psalms – Chosen – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
The way that we love ourselves is by loving God and we love God by keeping his commandments. If we are going to love ourselves, we have to be committed, we have to deny ourselves and it takes practice. Love becomes perfect, mature, through practice. The more we obey, the more we begin to see the goodness of God.
09/02/2018 Chosen - Part 2
1 Corinthians, 2 Timothy, Luke, Romans – Chosen – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
We must love ourselves in order for us to carry out the mandate to bring God's glory into the world to the lost. In order for us to love ourselves, we have to accept that God loves us sacrificially, redemptively, and unconditionally. We must also cleanse our hearts by acknowledging and confessing our sins so that we will not judge the lost; realizing that we too were once lost, void of proper direction. When we acknowledge and confess our sins, we spiritually mature to realize that we need the Lord and we realize how much He loves us. We become fit to be used of God to bring His glory into the earth to the lost.
08/26/2018 Chosen - Part 1
1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, John – Chosen – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
You have been chosen; selected by God to represent Jesus. To be chosen by means to manifest the glory of the unseen God so that the lost will be able to see the character and presence of God in us and believe in Him. Ask yourself, are you fit to be used by God? Ask the Lord, in what areas are you not fit to be used? To be fit to be used by God, we have to mature spiritually. We begin to spiritually mature when we work on our relationship with the Lord. 
08/19/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 13
John, Luke, Philippians – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
If we are going to lay down our lives for this generation and for the lost, we are going to have to sacrifice. We have been chosen and given responsibility, but what have we really sacrificed? What are we willing to give up so that the lost might be saved? If we are to continue the works of Christ, there must be sacrifice. It begins with surrendering our will, giving up comfort and giving up convenience, so that the lost might be saved. The Will of God is always outside of our comfort zone. If we do not sacrifice and get out of our comfort zone, God's Will cannot be done.
08/13/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 12
1 John, John, Mark – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
If we are going to do the works of Christ, it requires a changed heart and it requires patience. Seeking and saving the lost is going to require us to also lay down our lives for our friends. We have to accept that we have been chosen for this generation and we have to have love for this generation. Our love for this generation begins with our forgiveness. Unforgiveness, of anyone, causes our hearts to be hardened. Forgiveness allows us to be free to be used by God.
08/05/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 11
1 Corinthians, 1 John, John – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
If you are going to do the works of Christ, it is going to require you to lay down your life for your friends. To lay down your life means to give, to commit and to fulfill God's purpose for our life. Love causes you to lay down your life to allow the Lord to use you. In order to allow the Lord to use you, you have to accept that you have been chosen for this generation. To be chosen means that God knows you weaknesses, you have to forget about your short comings and your past and you have to cooperate with Him. You must see this generation as your friend and you have to come down and let them know you understand what they are experiencing. You must become what is necessary to save this generation.
07/29/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 10
John – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
John 15:13 KJV "Greater love hat no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." This generation has to be our friends and we have to tell them everything that the Father has told us. We cannot say that we love this generation and withhold from them what was given to us. We must lay down our life for this generation. We must come down off our high horse and see them face to face. We know that they are our friends when we take what we know and what we have been taught and give it to them.
07/22/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 9
James, John, Revelation – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
Doing the works of Christ requires patience. Patience is an internal fulfillment. It is not based on time, it is a position. When you are patient, you keep the commandments of God and hold on to your confidence in the testimony of Jesus. In order to establish patience you must submit yourself to authority, strip yourself of pride, let your faith be tried and be a doer of the Word. Patience is a choice.

Galatians, John – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
Obedience puts us in a right position with God, which leads to being in agreement with God.

Also, when we obey from the heart He is able to manifest Himself to us and through us and it produces fruit.
06/17/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 5
John, Philippians – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
We have a responsibility to do the works of Christ, but it requires us to be changed. This change takes place on the inside and when it takes place on the inside, it can be seen externally. Apart from God, change is not possible. Your heart has truly been changed when your heart agrees with God's heart. There is power in righteousness and it produces fruit.
06/10/2018 Doing the Works of Christ - Part 4
John – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr

Acts, John – Doing the Works of Christ – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
The Lord wants us to do greater works than He accomplished during His earthly ministry. We are Christ's body and it is through His body that He gets works done in the earth. In order to do those works, change must take place. Change is possible and we can make a difference. God provided the power that brings change, the power to change our hearts, the power to change our witness, and the power to change our world.

Matthew, Romans – Church is Who We Are – Pastor Charles W. Starks Jr
We are from the heart. God is more interested in what is in our hearts than what we do. Every believer should be from the heart. Love is our foundation.
