MORNINGTIME 2560

As many as I love, I REBUKE and CHASTEN: be zealous therefore, and REPENT. Revelation 3:19. Rebuke: Generally with a suggestion of shame of the person convicted by conviction to bring to the light, to expose, to find fault with, correct. Chasten: Thayer's Definition; to train children, to be instructed or taught or learn, to cause one to learn, to chastise, to chastise or castigate with words, to correct, of those who are molding the character of others by reproof and admonition, of God to chasten by the affliction of evils and calamities, to chastise with blows, to scourge, of a father punishing his son, of a judge ordering one to be scoured. (That's a mouth full). Repent: to change one's mind for better, heartily to amend with abhorrence of one's past sins. "Repentance (metanoia, 'change of mind') involves a turning with contrition from sin to God; the repentant sinner is in the proper condition to accept the divine forgiveness." (There, see how easy this is)??? This is all part of a lifetime of correction, admonition, and repentance. This isn't a life of living on this earth trying to fit God in in some places here and there when we have time and convenience, this is a Life of Living In Christ and living in this life Moving in His Will, His Way, in Obedience to all that He asks of us. His Priority is to have us Preach the Gospel to ALL, in perfect Obedience with the Peace that passes Understanding and Joy Unspeakable. Living in Christ has no concern for how long we live, but for HOW we Live. EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF EVERY SINGLE DAY IS PERFECTLY ORCHESTRATED TO LINE UP WITH THE WILL OF THE LORD. Do we follow His Will? Probably not as we should, and He Knows that. That's no excuse, Repent, Forgive, go at it again. We're all Growing in Christ, so how fast do you want to give it your All? Or are you content to coast along on your past obedience’s? There are lots of "I wish I had...". Well, right now is, "I Will"!!! Be Blessed.
