|Long Suffering But Not Ever Suffering|
|2 Peter 3:3-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God only promised one opportunity to be saved, only one time will He invite you. We should be thankful for the chastening that God does to us. The chastening indicates that He loves us and wants what's best for us in His image. God shows us patience over and over and yet He doesn't have to. There are times we as Christians choose to go against what God has told us to do. During those times of disobedience God is longsuffering to us. At times we seem to think that if we can't see Him then we won't get caught, just the same as a child acts away from their parents. But God is all knowing and can see everywhere and everything. During those times of disobedience there will come a time where Gods longsuffering will come to an end and He will draw a line in the sand. He will show up when you're least expecting Him and place a stopping point. If you choose to step over the line that He has drawn then you've forced Him to remove the problem. Just as a disobedient child and a loving parent. The child will be warned to obey but there will come a time when the child disobeys to the point that the parent must intervene and remove the child's pleasures. If you're a child of a God and are living in disobedience, it's no surprise when He deals with you. God is raising children and He is trying to grow us into His likeness. If you're walking thru your Christian life and you know God is chastening you, count it a blessing because you're one of His. Gods patiences does and will run out. Don't push Him till His patiences runs out on you.|

|Are You Blessed?|
|Psalm 84:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There should be something that fuels a child of God. Where is your strength? We as humans have no strength without God.
How many people want to be blessed? In these verses it refers to man which means mankind. These are grace given blessings because we didn't ask for them.Psalm 84:5 it's not about us but all about Him.
Psalm 65:4 if you're saved then you've been chosen.
Psalm 32:2 the saved have been forgiven.
Psalm 94:12 the saved are loved thru chastening.
The following are obedience based blessings.Psalm 34:8 we should trust in God, always. Sometimes you're gonna have to take a stand for Christ. Prov 3:5
Psalm 112:1 the word of God will bless you but you MUST study it and take it in. Wisdom is obtained by fearing God, not in fright but knowing He controls it all. Just as a child respects their parents, they learn by obedience. If the child has no respect they turn disobedient and rebellious which the outcome will often come with negative consequences.

|Wrestling With God|
|Genesis 32:22-32 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Life brings forth tough things that people must go through. Most of the time when you've done something wrong and you run from it, hiding, thinking that no one will find out. No matter the circumstances, we will all reap what we've sown. Many people run and run until they finally get to the end of the trail forcing them to make a decision. Some will run and will make their choice to turn away from their sin and run towards God, while others make their choice to continue in their sin knowing they should stop and turn away. The consequences to continuing in sin is a dreadful end, death at times. If you're one of Gods, a Christian and you've turned a deaf ear towards God, He will grab ahold of you until you break. He does this because He loves you just as a caring parent loves a disobedient child. Did you know you can pray a prayer telling God that you won't let go of God until He blesses you? God wants us to give up on ourselves and rely solely on Him.|

|One Step Doesn't Make a Journey|
|Acts 2:41-42 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|It takes one step to start the journey. There is not one person that knows for how long they are going to live. So how are you going to live those steps? What matters is the dash between your birth date and death date. We have no choice of when we are born and likewise our death. Have we not wasted years of our lives on junk. God will examine our journey and the junk will all be burnt. If you're waiting for the Spirit of God to show up before you began to worship, if you're saved then the Spirit lives inside you. We all have our own minds to make up whether we serve God or not. No one else can serve God for you. If you have children in your life then they are always watching you which means you are constantly teaching them. So what are you teaching those children about church, God? God knows why you come to church and it's just as bad to attend church unwilling and hindering His word than to simply lay out. If you've been saved then you've been purchased therefore you no longer own yourself, you live for Him now. Now your life matters when it comes to God. It's not about just getting into Heaven. Does Wednesday matter? What about Tuesday? When does it become okay to not live for God? Who's choice was it to join the church? What happened then when you made the choice to not follow Gods Word about not failing to assemble themselves together in the church service?
The Primitive Baptist association are made up of several churches and was established back in 1802. Associations of churches are not usual but ours has been going on for over 200 years. If some people do not take an interest into the association, it will dissolve. Now the association can NOT get one into Heaven but there are some things that are important. Most of the pastors of NPPBC were not from NPPBC, they were from other churches.

|It's About a Choice|
|Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Many make Salvation a difficult thing. In the beginning God made Adam and Eve to have their own choice. There is nothing that you can do to separate you from the love of God. It's not difficult to make a decision, do you want life or death? God didn't make Adam or Eve love Him. He didn't make Moses to love Him, therefore He's not going to make you love Him either. You have a choice, He will not make you to be saved. The greatest of joys is to serve someone else. Have you made up your mind on who you will serve? One can't serve two gods, you will either love one and hate the other. No one is made to love God, it's a freedom that we all have whether we love Him. By default we are going to hell because we must choose God. It's an eternal choice that must be made once the invitation has been received because we don't know if we will take another breath. God wants you to choose Him because He loves you but in the end, it's completely up to you. Some keep going the wrong direction but expect different results. The table has been set full, the invitations have gone out, you're starving to death but, you just sit and watch other feast on the goodness of God. You can starve yourself to death. Have you made up your mind? Who are you going to serve? That simple choice will change you forever.|
