|The Perfect Love of God|
|1 John 4:11-21 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Gods love allows one to be awake each morning. People are scared of a lot of things. Torment is a type of fear. Being tormented is a case of worry and can cause lack of sleep. Some fears of life is being alone. If one was left alone for sometime they would begin to go crazy. The truth of life though is that You're never alone. God is always there and always will be. Our love as a human is not perfect but conditional. We love because of but God loves in spite of. We all have a fear of failure. The little voice in our head is always telling us we can't do something because we are not good at it. But with God all things done thru Him are perfect. 1 John 2:2; means that if we are walking with God that when we do fail He will take of it. Most everyone are afraid of death. The fear of death is something we have no control of and those things most fears. The perfect love of God casts out the fear of death. Once we die with Christ we will live forever with Christ. If death finds you while you're lost then an eternal Hell, fire and torment will be your forever home. What are you afraid of?|

|Reverence Only To God|
|Psalm 89:5-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|One should be careful of what one seems holy, worshipped. People these days seem to NEED their cell phone. People don't want to hear that we should fear God. When you truly know God then you'll have a reverence to Him. A lot of people hold a lot of things to a higher standard and those things will all burn up in the end. One can't take those things with them when they die. People come in Sunday after Sunday but they come and go the same way. It matters what we worship. There should only be one thing that is revered and that is God. Three categories should be thought on and given up one. Days and times are not to be reverenced. Six days should a person work but the seventh should be used as a day of rest and worship. Not only are days not to be reverenced but the events should also not be. There will never be a holiday more important than Jesus. Things should not be worshipped. In some religions items are used for worship, beads, crucifixes, etc. if those things are a part of your worship and keep you from worshipping if you do not have it, get rid of it. The church building itself has no power to save and therefore is not needed for God to show up. Should we respect it, honor it, keep it as clean as our own, yes-yes and yes again. But only God should be worshipped and not the building. The bible should not be worshipped. You must be careful about the Holy Word and not to let the book itself become more holy than God. There are times that you'll want to hold your bible, sleep with it, not leave its side, but in the end it's only a book. If your bible burnt to ash Jesus would still be Jesus and you could simply go out and get a new one. People should not be revered. Mary the mother of Jesus is no different than one of us and should not be higher than God. The Pope is commonly referred to as the Holy Father, His Holiness, The Rock, Supreme Pontiff, Holy of Kings, however he is no holy than the next person. The pastor of a church should also not be worshipped. When the time comes and the pastor leaves a church, some people will follow the man. Pastors will often have reverend as their title, a poor practice but they should not be reverenced. One can not worship everything and ever worship God. God is first and everything else should follow in its place. Acts 12:4, you can personally know the Pope and not know Jesus Christ and bust Hell wide open at your death.|

|Your Only Hope|
|Psalm 39:6-13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Some are in a place today because you made a choice by yourself without Gods guidance. It has brought negative consequences on your life but there is a remedy. We as humans often think we know what's best. That usually gets us into a bad shape. We should fear God as in a second He can bring us into subjection.
Materialistic items will be left behind at death. Your mind, your health and all of your belonging will all be left behind. All of your current endeavors will be in vain at the time of your death. If life is truly vain then what is there to look forward to at death? Put your hope in the Lord! If you're lost this life is as good as it's going to get but, if you're saved then this current life is as bad as it's going to be.
We as humans all have things that mean absolutely nothing at death. We must repent of those material junk items. The Word of God, the bible, was not written about you therefore it's not about you. The bible was written on One and that was Jesus Christ.
God chastises those that are His because He loves them and wants them to do better. God knows exactly how to chastise those that are saved because He knows us inside and out. He knows each and every person and what it'll take to bring one under submission. The saved should at some point know that when God calls one out, stop, listen and obey. The saved should never think that God wouldn't chastise them. God can and will bring you down if you do not repent of the sins in your life. When God chastises it breaks down the pride down to nothing.
Be so heavenly minded so you're no earthly good. We live in a Godless society. Flesh is everywhere! The saved should feel more like a stranger in this life than a welcomed guest.
Stop fighting against God. What you need can be found on your knees thru repentance.

|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.

|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.
