People You Can (Not) Help

Message: People You Can (Not) Help

Speaker: Ryan Kibbe


10:00 am


Help. It’s not just what God does, it’s who God is. And we are just like Him, made in His image. He cannot help but help. Wherever He is, help is there.  The Bible says He is an “ever-present help!”


But our ability to help people is not just determined by our willingness, it is equally affected by other people’s openness! God wants to help us all, but not all want His help. 


This Sunday, Ryan Kibbe explores and identifies  BOTH the “People You Can (Not) Help” to help you better steward your time, talents and resource!

Sermon Scriptures:

John 6:44 AMP

“No one is able to come to Me unless the Father Who sent Me attracts and draws him and gives him the desire to come to Me”

John 14:6 NASB

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.


You CANNOT help people who REFUSE to disconnect from the WRONG people!

You CAN help people who CHOOSE to embrace the RIGHT people!

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭13‬:‭20‬ ‭NASB

“One who walks with wise people will be wise, But a companion of fools will suffer harm.”


1 Corinthians‬ ‭15‬:‭33‬ ‭NASB

“Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.””


You CANNOT help people become successful if they DISRESPECT successful people.

You CAN help people who CELEBRATE other people’s SUCCESS!



‭‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭15‬ ‭NASB

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭18‬ ‭NASB

“Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.”

You CANNOT help someone who wants ALL of your resource but NONE of your wisdom.

You CAN help people who appreciate YOU and your resources!


‭‭Luke‬ ‭15‬:‭16‬-‭17‬ TPT

“The son was so famished, he was willing even to eat the slop given to the pigs, because no one would feed him a thing. “Humiliated, the son finally realized what he was doing, and he thought, ‘There are many workers at my father’s house who have all the food they want with plenty to spare. They lack nothing. Why am I here dying of hunger, feeding these pigs and eating their slop?”

You CANNOT help people who CANNOT see they need help and do not WANT help.


2 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭22‬ TPT

“They become illustrations of the true proverb: A dog will return to his own vomit and a washed pig to its rolling in the mud.”


You CAN help people who are OPEN to change!


‭‭Psalms‬ ‭145‬:‭14‬ ‭NASB

“The Lord supports all who fall, And raises up all who are bowed down.”

You CANNOT help someone with a problem if they BLAMESHIFT you for their problem.


‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭18‬:‭17‬-‭18‬ ‭NASB

“When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is this you, the cause of disaster to Israel?” He said, “I have not brought disaster to Israel, but you and your father’s house have, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord and you have followed the Baals.”


You CAN help people willing to OWN it and PERSEVERE through their problem!


‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭24‬:‭16‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“For the lovers of God may suffer adversity and stumble seven times, but they will continue to rise over and over again. But the unrighteous are brought down by just one calamity and will never be able to rise again.”


You CANNOT help a “Know-It-All”

You CAN help a learner!


‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭28‬:‭26‬ TPT

“Self-confident know-it-alls will prove to be fools. But when you lean on the wisdom from above, you will have a way to escape the troubles of your own making.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭10‬:‭14‬ TPT

“Wise men don’t divulge all that they know, but chattering fools blurt out words that bring them to the brink of ruin.

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭10‬:‭‭17‬ TPT

If you readily receive correction, you are walking on the path to life. But if you reject rebuke, you’re guaranteed to go astray.”
