Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

Isaiah 55:1-3, KJV

For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

Hebrews 12:10, KJV

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30, KJV

But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

1 Corinthians 9:27, KJV

“I have made a covenant (agreement) with my eyes; How then could I gaze [lustfully] at a virgin?

Job 31:1, AMP

He made the following pertinent points:

  • There is a place in God where nations will run to you.
  • In the character of God is consistency – God cannot lie, He cannot fail, He cannot change.
  • For everything, for greatness in life, there is a price to pay.
  • Practice is a price for winning
  • Time is the price for knowing God – Do you know God?
  • Prayer is the price for anointing.
  • Communication is the price for a good marriage
  • Fidelity is the price for the maximum blessing of marriage. It is important to be faithful to your spouse.
  • Righteous living is the price for exaltation
  • Honor is the price for access.
  • Discipline is the price for a life of no regret.
  • Seed is the price for harvest.
  • Your soul does not change, but it is constantly renewed. The price you have to pay is to contend with your body and mind.
  • A quickie is the longest you will ever face in your life, sex is not just for fun, this is because you are not just sleeping with the body, but with the spirit.
  • Delaying gratification is the price you will have to pay for fulfilling your glorious destiny. There are people that you will sleep with and will never be able to let go of because it is intercourse – interfering with every part of your body.
  • Sex is not bad but should be done within the confines of marriage. Why not wait?
  • What price are you ready to pay?
  • Will you wait? Pay the Price!
  • There is something you are here to solve, but will you be patient enough to follow through in disicpline?
  • The yoke of Jesus is the yoke of discipline. It’s not just giving your life to Jesus, there is a price to be paid – working out your salvation with fear and trembling.
  • Grace can lead you to hell if misappropriated. This is where grace can be dangerous. Grace is not a free will to sin, but to deliver us from sin.
  • Come into a life of discipline.

And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

Genesis 11:4-6, KJV

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Genesis 6:5-8, KJV

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Amos 3:3, KJV

And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

1 Chronicles 28:9, KJV

23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Jeremiah 7:23, KJV
  • Once the devil wants to destroy people’s lives he scatters the unity-the devil fights the church, organization, families, relationships because of the language of unity.
  • Between the pastor and the pastored, there must be a meeting (Agreement) in the heart.
  • The heart is the basis for unity; if the heart is right, actions are right, but if the heart is in a bad state the actions will show it.
  • People can be having sex, but not be one at heart that is why some married couples live together but are far apart in their hearts.
