Thoughts for today...

We've been reading Thessalonians. I really appreciate how God was so pleased with what they were doing as a church. But one thing that stands out is that Paul said to them, "although you are doing well, STILL EXCEL MORE"

That is what we need to always do as well. Obviously, not to go to heaven but becasue if we love God as we claim to, His commandments should not be burdensome to us. That means *all* of them, not just the ones we want to obey. We need to also remember to have joy in all the trials God puts us through. That it is His way of molding us and making us stronger disciples.

I always have to take a look at myself through God's eyes. I need to look at myself and my sin through His holiness (sprinkled with His mercy *wink*) to get an honest idea of where I need fixin'. It sounds like such and easy thing to do, but for me, my pride can stand in the way of my honesty...

You know, I have been reading through the epistles. (Did I spell that correctly? *grin*) I have found it very interesting that these are letters written to the CHURCH and just look at all of the instructions that are in them! On some of them you would think he is talking to those that aren't saved....but he is speaking to the church!! WOW!

I just thought I would share...*giggles* It is so nice to have a place to go that we can really talk about our Lord!! Thank you for creating this blog and preparing this place for us to do just that.

((Hugs)) and Blessings!

RECALLED!


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:
P-R-A-Y-E-R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control


Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!
GOD

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
