|Galatians 6:7-10 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|Seems as if there is a great need for patience. Folks don't seem to want to wait anymore for just about everything. When we plant a garden we plant seeds, those seeds take time to grow. If one is patient then they should receive a great harvest.
There is a reaping whether it be a good harvest or bad. Depending on what is sowed depends on what is reaped. Consequences for sin is a harvest that can never be removed for the rest of ones life. We all have a choice to make whether they will do good or bad. Don't be deceived because the penalty for sin is great. Some of the leaders of our country are deceived. We can make laws and change them to try to make a persons live a certain way but none of these changes will ever lead to goodness. People no longer have the fear of God in their hearts therefore they live a life of worldliness. God holds your very breath and should be reverenced as such. For whatever reason God still has mercy for this country even though most have forgotten who He truly is.
No matter where you go in your life at least one of Gods people will be with you. Don't be deceived by what the world says. Just as in Noah's time, they mocked God and him as he built the ark. In the end, God sent the flood and only saved those that believed In Him, Noah's family.
Now if one plants a seed of corn then one expects a stalk of corn to grow from that seed. Why would anyone expect anything less about the choices of the way they live and sow life or death. There is a difference in knowing that you're doing wrong and continuing and not knowing. To know and do against it is called rebelling.
One can't live like they want to during the week and expect God to be worshipped on Sunday. So we should sow to the Spirit Monday thru Sunday and we will reap what we sow. How many struggle on Mondays to show your happy in your spirit? We should take every opportunity we get to uplift our fellow man especially our brothers and sisters in Christ. But, something holds us back and it's because we are humans and therefore we are sinners. We should fight against the sinful nature of our flesh striving to overcome it to uplift the name of Jesus.
If you act like, dress like, talk like and look like the world, then how is the world supposed to know that you're a Christian?
Seeds don't grow instantly, therefore don't give up. People usually don't come to Jesus instantly, don't give up on them! Keep planting the seeds of love and be patient.

|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.|

|Let Your Heart Be Broken|
|1 Samuel 4:1-12 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|People today want to put God in their own little box creating their own religion. Some want God to do what they want Him to do. God doesn't work this way as He works in His own accord. Everyone will go thru some sort of sorrow during their life. We shouldn't question Gods works or will. More and more people are turning away from God each and everyday. We must be careful to not let those people to question Gods will and who He is. We as Christians must be strong, study His word to know the differences between the devil and God. We must understand and that God doesn't need us in order to do His will. Therefore once we get ourselves out of His way, His will is done in perfection. One can't win an argument with God, it will always be Gods way. Grief can quickly turn into anger. One must break under God or anger will consume you. Brokenness leads to surrendering and once you've surrendered to Gods will then He will give you great peace. We shouldn't let one person to hold us back from worshipping God. How can you love God if you can't love your fellow man?|

|Luke 15:11-14 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of us want things that we think we are owed. We were owed death and hell but God seen otherwise. Some of us question Gods word for us and think we know better. There is a place in your heart that needs filled and during your life you'll try to put things in that hole to try to fill it. Nothing in this world will ever fill that void. Jesus is the ONLY thing that's able to fill that void and He will never leave that void once it's filled with Him. Repeating a prayer, having a prayer prayed over you by the pastor or having your name on a church membership doesn't make you saved or fill that void. If you think you've struck a deal with God that gives you the ability to do what you want (sin) then you've been badly mistaken. You're in the wrong. God has a plan for everyone, it's just a matter of accepting His call in your life. If you avoid His call, He will try to get your attention. Sometimes it takes a lot, sometimes it takes very little to grab your attention. A lot of times folks are scared of what you'll have to give up once you turn your life over to God. God will never leave you and if He calls you, He WILL carry you thru whatever He's called you to do. What God has done for us is just beautiful. We ALL fall short of the Holiness of Gods Glory but repentance and forgiveness gets us closer and closer. When you ask for forgiveness and you get that forgiveness, God doesn't hold it over you but in fact gives the feasts of feasts because He loves you.
If there is someone that thinks that Hell is just a big party and not that it of deal, they're completely in the wrong. Hell is to be feared and there will never be a "party" but torments and a fire that will never burn up the flesh and will never cease.

|Acts 10:1-22 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We must have confidence in God but in order to do that we must change. Everyone wants to go to heaven but in order to do that we must be changed. We often go out and look at others and think that God would have a hard time saving them. The first thing that will help us to change is to pray. Get and make a private time that's between you and God and nothing else. We must also not look to ourselves in doing all the work. The work can only be done when we allow God to do the work and not ourselves. We have the Word which is God if we are saved to share to the lost but, we can only share it when we are in the shape to share it. There will always be someone around you that will not make a decision to follow God but, don't let them discourage you. We are currently living in a grace period where God loves us beyond our sins but, soon the grace will leave us when Jesus comes back. God doesn't look upon us currently and judge our sins. One sin is just as much as a million sins no matter the humanly made level. We must always know that nothing is higher than Jesus. Cancer is lower than Jesus. Habitual sin is lower than Jesus. Worldly things are lower than Jesus. The president is lower than Jesus. Jesus is reclusive as He is the only way into heaven. There are many religions in the world and most are based on works but all are lies from Satan unless Jesus Christ is the only way to Salvation. Often we like to embellish what God has spoken to us only to add lies to His Word. This is a sin and should never take place. Stick to the truth, Gods Word and do not change or add to His Word.|
