|Pruned To Perfection|
|John 15:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When you prune things you cut them back. You have to prune things back in order to make it flourish. Not anyone can simply begin pruning, one must learn how to prune in order for the plant to flourish. All of us could confess that things pop up in our lives that take our focus off the main thing. Gal 5:22-23 are all fruits of the Spirit. We should look into the areas where the opposite of the fruits are growing. From a business aspect, they are always looking for ways of making more money, cutting out those things that waste money. Mat 5:16, Gods aim in your life is to make you more fruitful. Just as the fruit gardener is, God is patient. If you're grafted into the true vine then God will prune away all of the things that are unproductive. The fruit we bare is not to give glory to the branch. How fruitful are you? If you're truly attached to the vine then the vine cares about what type of fruit your growing and sharing.|

|All Is Yours|
|1 Corinthians 3:21-23 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|God has promised us a few things and His promises are true. God has called us out from amongst the world to be a different people. God is not limited by anything. He is the creator of ALL things and therefore controls it ALL! When God saves someone they are saved for eternity because that is one of His promises, He doesn't change His mind.
It matters how you live because others are learning by your walk. We should not worship "men" like pastors, priests or great leaders. Preachers are called of God and all have their own calling of how they teach and bring the word whether they are extraordinary or ordinary. The man of God should at all times preach Gods Word and nothing else and if He wavers should be confronted in love according to His word. God is the same God from the hills of Tennessee to Rome!
Not only is the men of God that preach His word are ours, but the world also. This means anything in this world can be used by Him to make us better and work us to His will. The devil will come to you and offer you the world for your love for him but Satan doesn't have that authority. Satan could offer you the keys to Fort Knox but that would be for your own benefit. God doesn't need the gold or all the cash in this world.
People worry too much about life because it's unknown. If we knew life then we would worry more because of the known end and struggles thru it. When one wakes up and realizes they have to go to work yet again, stop and thank God for being able to do so instead of complaining.
Death is also ours that is of Christ's. This is because He has defeated death and it has no hold on His children. The only thing that will happen at the end of our life is that God will take us by the hand and lead us to His Glory.
The present is also ours if we are Christ's. What do you really need from this world? God has complete control over it all and therefore is ours. This is Gods "Will" that He wrote for us all that are His because we are His children. Just like the present is ours, the future is also ours. We can not fathom what the future holds.
The reason that all of these things are simply answered because we are Christ's and He is Gods.
John 10:28-29 sums it all up in a very simple verse.

|Do You Love Him?|
|John 21:15-17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
Many will acknowledge that they live Christ but the question is do we do them, proving it. Love is both a noun and verb but is usually an action, a verb. Does God not have the right to ask us if we really love Him? Do we not offend Him daily causing a him to question us? Many have made a career of the self calling of a pastor but God does the calling not man. God has every right to question us. Many love the world more than God. Following the worlds fleshly wants and needs. Many care more about what others are going to think than what God knows.
Agapeo is what is being asked in verses 15 and 16 but in 17 it changes to phileo which is meaning dearly.
15 and 16 is a comparison of the others and Peter's love. 17 is a direct question to Peter's love towards Christ not comparing others love. So there was a question of caring in verses 15 and 16 but true love was asked in 17.
What's scary to a hypocrite is the all the while knowing that God knows the truth. If you're trying to prove your love for God in your church service or attendance then you've lost the point. You'll serve God because you can't help it and He is everything.
Jesus gave some mandates on our love towards Him. One was to feed the His sheep, the followers of Christ. Feed would be to bring food and have to be a nurturer.
Doesn't the flesh say we forgive but we doubt trusting them again? Most want to be associated to Jesus Christ only if it pushes their agenda. One can't love until love is first received.

|Are You In The Flock?|
|John 10:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|If you've named something, then it means something to you. God loves us enough to give us a name. He goes before us and fights our battles. The devil at times will make a lot or noise. How often to you allow the devil to scare you away from your blessings? Have you ever thought about the things that God stops before it touches you. Just as a shepherd would stop something from getting his sheep. How do those with Christ make it through the troubles in this life? God gives us that are saved a peace beyond understanding. If you put your faith in anyone else but God, they WILL let you down at some point. Christ laid His life down for you, He will never turn His back on you. Do you worry about things in your life that are out of your hands? Outside of the flock of God, there is NO peace. There is no shepherd to watch out for your safety and give you peace if you are not in the flock.|

|Desire + Will = ?|
|John 14:12-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|There is one thing in a Christians life that can't be done enough and that's prayer. Before one can be born again, one must pray. When we pray, we should pray in Gods will. We should always ask what Gods will is in our lives. We should be willing to do what God tells us to do. Nothing that we do is good unless it's through Gods will. We need more help today than we have ever needed. We need to stop asking God to do them and start asking God what He wants us to do. What is Gods will? 2 Peter 9 His will is to seek those that are lost. God wants our very best and not our leftovers. God asks us to lay down our lives as a living sacrifice. That means we need to give it ALL. We are naked before God. We might be able to hide the sins from our neighbors but God sees each and every sin. John 16:23-24 Do you have joy in your prayer? It's a blessing that we get to go to Gods throne room and ask Him directly for our loved ones. John 15:7-10 We don't have power in our prayers because we choose to do what we want to. John 15:16 We should show fruit of that of a Christian to those around you. What could happen if Gods desire plus Gods will could equal to?|
