Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also OBTAIN the SALVATION which is IN CHRIST JESUS with eternal glory. Study to shew thyself APPROVED UNTO GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Nevertheless the Foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, THE LORD KNOWETH them that are HIS. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a Vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. And THE SERVANT of the Lord MUST not strive; but BE GENTLE unto all men , apt to TEACH, PATIENT, In meekness INSTRUCTING those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them REPENTANCE to the ACKNOWLEDGING of THE TRUTH; And that THEY may RECOVER themselves OUT OF the snare of THE DEVIL, who are taken captive by him at his will. 2 Timothy 2:7,10,15,19,21, 24-26. a GOoD(LY) Preacher WILL feed his flock the Bread of Life with streams of Living Water to make a complete and full meal of Food to Grow on. And Grow you will. No sheep stays lame, but for a season. The shepherd will Teach, Preach, and Admonish his sheep to partake of the meal set before then, that they Grow Fully in Christ. BUT THAT'S ALL the shepherd can do. The sheep must eat what is put before them of The Bread of Life. THE SHEEP MUST ALSO UNDERSTAND, that the GOoD Shepherd, Christ Himself, will use AND allow EVERYTHING that goes on around the sheep TO GROW THE SHEEP INTO CHRISTLIKENESS, all the Way to their Ultimate Perfection, on this side. Please understand sheep, ALL that goes on in your  church is designed to mold you and shape you (pottery) into the Image of Christ. In short, Christ will use other sheep, (saved and lost), goats, AND wolves, IN YOUR CHURCH, to strengthen you to be like Him. And  THERE, you Will forever, Be Blessed.
