[…] Can you pass the test? P1 ( […]


You asking me if I could pass the test, must have struck a nerve. As I wrote the last two posts it sure hit home with me. So to answer your question ‘ no ‘.

It did wake me up, How many times in Scripture does it speak of ‘ having ears to  hear? ‘

When we accept Jesus as our Saviour we just don’t sit back and wait for ‘ Eternity ‘, we now have a responsibility to God.

When we become Christians our work starts and it is all geared to help others, to set a godly example to others and all “ in the name of Jesus. “

James 2:18  But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”  Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.

James 2:20  You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?

James 2:26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

We are saved but are still sinners saved only by Grace.

As we live each day we should start it out in prayer. Ask God what you can do for Him today. To many times we don’t have ears and don’t hear the Holy Spirit or if we hear we have our own wants to do “ first “ and get to God’s direction later if we have time.

The human race is selfish and self-centered. To often we are our own gods and there is no way to avoid answering for our deeds, good or bad.

I hope the last posts were read closly and don’t try to apply any of the things to someone else. Everything you should apply to yourself and then try to make changes with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Look in a mirror before you look out the window.

The most important in your life should be God, next family then others; yourself last. If you work for God He will provide what you need to do what He wants.

Yes; I have failed at this but keep coming back and trying harder and God has provided.

My post are trying to explain God’s Word. I do not tell you what to do but hope the Holy Spirit convicts you to do what you should. If we don’t know how we should live then how can we live for God?

Yes; we fail the test but when we wake up the next day we have that chance to improve.

Glory be to God our Father for His Love and Grace.
