“In the Room and At The Gate, the only person you can blame is Yourself for doing or not doing a Good Job for God.”~ Jon Barnes
In life, many people spend time complaining, murmuring, fixing the problems of others, reading, watching, and doing everything but what God has planned for their lives. I still struggle with this and laugh at myself for wasting precious time on doing so little, for Heaven’s Sake! When you walk into the room, be the One for God! Why argue the mundane when you can focus on completing the sane commandments of love, and fulfill the Love Purpose in your lifestyle. Challenge yourself not to be a bad, gossip company.
What you do for God is what you do for yourself. When you walk into the Room, any Room, Keep this in mind. Then your motives will become obvious enough to complete your assignments with respect to God and then yourself. I cannot respect myself, if I don’t respect God first, before completing my work of love. RESPECT is what the word and work mean to God and yourself, as you complete each little love job inside every little room you walk into, everywhere you Go. Good Character and Graceful lips Go a long way.
God does not change or waste His time on Hypocrites because they love themselves and not God! Many get this point wrong! Here is why: True Christians Love God first, by doing the work, word, and obeying the commandments and lifestyle, and then you can see and feel how much God loves you, which is what gives you the wisdom to love yourself (Your Soul) properly. Time, money, schedule, assignments, play, rest, work, worship, and church time flow like daily bread and water from God, as a result. Be yourself and be on task or blame yourself for not doing so. Use and love God’s new solutions.
Are you carrying and studying a lie from Satan’s Bible to look cute or are you daily using The Holy Bible for YOURSELF, doing God’s Work?
Enjoy the Reading.
1 Corinthians 16
The Collection for the Lord’s People
16 Now about the collection for the Lord’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. 2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. 3 Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem. 4 If it seems advisable for me to go also, they will accompany me.
5 After I go through Macedonia, I will come to you—for I will be going through Macedonia. 6 Perhaps I will stay with you for a while, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go. 7 For I do not want to see you now and make only a passing visit; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.8 But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost, 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.
10 When Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am. 11 No one, then, should treat him with contempt. Send him on his way in peace so that he may return to me. I am expecting him along with the brothers.
12 Now about our brother Apollos: I strongly urged him to go to you with the brothers. He was quite unwilling to go now, but he will go when he has the opportunity.
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 14 Do everything in love.
15 You know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the service of the Lord’s people. I urge you, brothers and sisters, 16 to submit to such people and to everyone who joins in the work and labors at it. 17 I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you. 18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition.
19 The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla[a] greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house. 20 All the brothers and sisters here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
21 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand.
22 If anyone does not love the Lord, let that person be cursed! Come, Lord[b]!
23 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.[c]
