|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.

|Does God Know What You're Going Through?|
|2 Corinthians 4:7-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Everyone will have or has had trouble. Most people struggle because they give in to the lust of the flesh. There are some that simply will not read or study the Word of God. There are people all around you that are in need and struggling. God can not and will not be destroyed. If you are saved, one of His, God will never leave you. He will hold you up, He will carry you when you fall. We have valleys to walk through because He is always building us. Troubles will make you grow stronger. Have you ever asked God why bad things happen? If you don't know why you're going through the valley, don't be in despair. God is not a human that could fail. Being saved means you will be persecuted, but that doesn't mean that God left you out on your own. Did you know that children of God go through more than the lost? Even of one is killed because of the glory of God, death is just the start of your Christian Life. If you knew it could cost you your life or your families life, would you still live for Christ? Don't give up when it gets tough. Knowing that our troubles are just temporary is exclusive to born again Christians.|

|The Expectation Of Salvation|
|Matthew 4:17 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|What does it mean to repent? It means you recognize that you've done wrong, sinned and need forgiveness and you turn from it. You can't hold on to the world and be saved. You can't be saved and want to live in the world. God is not just an addition, He makes you alive. Everyone wants a savior. If you've been saved, you've been bought with a great price. Your actions should reflect your salvation. You should continue to do Gods work, continuously turning towards Christ and away for. The world. Once you are saved, He didn't save you to sit, He saved you to work for Him. Don't just say you love each other, put actions behind it. You must allow God to change you. If you do not allow Him to change you, He will chastise you if you are saved. You can not hide your sins for God. It's usually easier to see your neighbors wrong doings, but we should at ourselves first. He will not allow you to bring shame to His name and salvation. Do not look to the world for your standards, look unto Gods. Sin destroys everything it comes in contact with, it is death. If something keeps you from serving God, it isn't worth anything and is a sin. Christ went all the way on the cross, He expects you to go all the way too. You are either with Him 100% or of the world.|
