TO ALL ( here’s the whole thing. Actually running to work right now. Sorry for not posting the passage).
May we know that GOD is all we need. We are made to strife and bicker only to realize it’s HIM we need. We learn evil, do evil, and spread evil; we are all guilty. No one is exempt.
Each trail of sin stinks. Especially when each one of us dares to see with the eyes of the Spirit the possibilities of what each one of our sins could have and has done to others.
May we realize that, to GOD, none of us are better than one another.
Don’t look for an apology from the past, because you may never get one. Just forgive.
Don’t keep anger from past situations, because those you hate HE may use to save you. Or HE may use you to have to save them.
Don’t want to know everything about people, because many things can take you off your path of righteousness.
Be content in all that you are given by HIM! Work hard in what it is HE has given you. Be thankful always unto HIM for all things, and HIS grace and mercy endures forever.
None of us know truly where heaven is or it’s location. But we know our heart and actions should change as a confirmation that we are seeking heaven. Let’s remember that we are taught the way to get there:
Be clean, sanctified, and a new creation in HIM. Be baptize (with water and in the Spirit) and the change in our lives should be slowly evident. Living only to give praises to HIM by following the greatest commandments JESUS told us to follow:
1. Love the LORD with all your heart 2. Love thy neighbor as thy self.
Please pray the LORD’s PRAYER and please read:
1 THESSALONIANS 3
1 When we could not bear it any longer, we decided it would be best to be left without a companion at Athens,
2 and sent our brother Timothy, who is God’s helper in spreading the gospel of Christ, to keep you firm and encourage you about your faith
3 and prevent any of you from being unsettled by the present hardships. As you know, these are bound to come our way:
4 indeed, when we were with you, we warned you that we are certain to have hardships to bear, and that is what has happened now, as you have found out.
5 That is why, when I could not bear it any longer, I sent to assure myself of your faith: I was afraid the Tester might have put you to the test, and all our work might have been pointless.
6 However, Timothy has returned from you and has given us good news of your faith and your love, telling us that you always remember us with pleasure and want to see us quite as much as we want to see you.
7 And so, brothers, your faith has been a great encouragement to us in the middle of our own distress and hardship;
8 now we can breathe again, as you are holding firm in the Lord.
9 How can we thank God enough for you, for all the joy we feel before our God on your account?
10 We are earnestly praying night and day to be able to see you face to face again and make up any shortcomings in your faith.
11 May God our Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, ease our path to you.
12 May the Lord increase and enrich your love for each other and for all, so that it matches ours for you.
13 And may he so confirm your hearts in holiness that you may be blameless in the sight of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.
GOD BLESS US ALL,
Let me not, O Lord, be puffed up with worldly wisdom, which passes away, but grant me that love which never abates, that I may not choose to know anything among men, but Jesus, and Him crucified.
