|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.|

|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.

|Privileged Beyond... (Part 3)|
|1 John 3:1-2 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We have been made His children. To understand that we must go back to know where we've come from. Have you ever thought about the love of God that would cause Him to love us? What does it mean to live without God? Think about how it would be to grow up with no parent that loved you. What if you were a child of an earthly king? Think about an orphan child and how they want to be loved. They do not want toys or other earthly wants. They simply want parents that love them like their own. Gal 4:4-5 Only thru the blood of Jesus Christ is how one can be adopted by God. A Jew lives for their birthright tying to make sure they can be traced back to Abraham. Your linage will not get you to heaven or make you any closer to God. Many orphans of this world can't wait to be out on their own but, they always have it in the back of their mind that they were never loved. Romans 8:14-15 The adoption paperwork once signed is sealed and can never be changed. Gal 4:7; Rom 8:17 Not only do we have the Spirit to prove to us but we are heirs. Have you even considered where you were when He came to you and asked you to become His child? What could be the reason that God would adopt us? What's your purpose? Why are you here? Phil 2:13-15 The purpose is that we are to bare much fruit for Christ. We are to shine in this dark time that we live in. We've been called out from amongst the darkness and into the light.|

|Teach a Child in the Way it Should Go|
|1 Samuel 3:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Giving the best to your children, Jesus. Teach them that in the time of their struggles to rely on God. We as parents have a major responsibility to bring up our children in a Godly way. Police your children and what they encounter whether it be the television, radio, schools or other homes. We as adults will be gone and our children will take over at that point. Your children need to see and hear us as parents pray and trust God. Prayer has been removed schools and the government. Just because you're a Christian doesn't mean that your child will also be a Christian. What keeps one out of hell is not someone else's salvation but theirs only.|
