A Pattern

Praise the Lord! Thank be to God for Jesus Christ! Hallelu Jah He is risen!

Our Apostle Paul Says: 1 Timothy 1:13-17 (I) was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Nevertheless for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all long-suffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen

Iniquity is hard. If one requires a correct world in this age for their happiness they are not going to be happy. If one believes in Jesus Christ, the Lord is available in any place at any time of the day or night. Most of the senseless sins we see committed are ignorance and in unbelief. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. When the Gospel is preached, often people will get mad and blow up. But to not have it preached has an even more violent future in store. We cannot judge men's hearts, but we can always tell the old story, and pray that folks would receive the word and be saved. Lord, we praise your name, thank you for your many blessings. Help us to remember your long-suffering towards us when we see incorrrect behavior in others. Thank you or your example of meekness: Awesome power under control. We pray that the Gospel is not hindered and has free course in America and to the ends of the Earth. We pray that your sheep would be fed, and brethren would turn in faith from harmful sin to the shepherd of their souls. We pray that the lost would hear the Gospel, that they may turn from sin to you. In Jesus' name Amen. Thank you Lord
