“Speak for your self,” you say? You speak for yourself. Please. But speak righteously. No, not self-righteously. But be righteous in God, because of Jesus and with the help of the Holy Ghost who was gifted to us so long ago. …..Suggestion. Read Galations chapter 4 and continue into chapter 5 where it says: 5:
1 For freedom *Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. 5:6 , for in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision or uncircumcision counts for anything, BUT only FAITH WORKING through LOVE
Therefore, be not mislead.
7 You were running well; who hindered you from following truth? 8 (those) enticement(s) do not come from the one who called you 9 “A little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough.” So, let me pose a question to you. ~ What happens to a batch of dough if it is left to sit too long? Right. It’ll rise and rise and rise until it pops a whole in itself and then it falls, falls, falls. Good batch of dough-ruined. Now , if before exploding, this batch of dough experiences the intense heat of an oven, what then happens to this batch of dough in this intense oven so that the answer to the first question won’t happen???? Oh, you are so smart. t will bake and if watched carefully will reach a level of baking that will give it a nice golden crown of crust. What happens to the outside of the dough? Right. It becomes stronger, doestn’t it. Yes. Now, HOW might this intense heat be related to the (suffering) fires that refine us???
Now. No Whining! We must do as we were told by the ever loving Father who knows us better than we know ourselves and who is only trying (quite patiently) to save us from our own ruin. Be on Guard. On Guard! Guard you Heart! God’s love to all those who belong to Him.
