Queen read about the good and faithful servent and the bad servent. If we have a chance to tell someone about the cross and we do not GOD will hold us
accountable even paul said when he had told people that he had come in contact with about the cross if they chose not to believe then he said i am
free of your blood.
Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due
? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
What is giving meat in due season?
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of
good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily
exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This
is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the
Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach.
1 Timothy 4:6-11
What does the bad servant do?
And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
He offends his fellow servants--smites them, punishes them, pummels them.
now about be saved just by the grace of god.
The grace of God is so mighty that it could save any sinner! And has! Paul says he,
himself, was the poster child for this truth--if God was willing and able to save Paul, who had a hand even, in the murder of faithful Stephen, sent
by God, himself to speak truths which were recieved with hostility resulting in his death by stoning--then obviously no man is beyond God's ability
to save! Paul was so set in his ways and errors of belief that he was killing the faithful of the cross! And in the space of a minute or two, on the
road to Damascus, God completely turned Paul around--permanently. He didn't coerce Paul or threaten Paul--He just came to Paul and showed Him the
truth of His light. And Paul believed--just like * that.
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. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first
Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
1 Timothy 1:14-16
Paul was an example for all of us--what God did for Paul He can and will do for all of us.
Rev chapter14:12Here is the patience of the saints,here are those who keep the commandments of GOD and the faith of jesus..You need a lesson
from GOD. You go around teaching things you should not
And what is the commandment of Christ Jesus?
He said 'love one another as I have loved you.'
Is it truly loving others to not tell them that the only thing holding them back from God is them, themselves--and the guilt and remorse they no
longer need to have--in that He has already made provision for all sins of all men--for all time?
For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that
1 Timothy 4:10
God's servants are not to threaten others on His behalf--they are to persuade the world to be reconciled to God--for there is no reason not to
believe this! There are no impediments to God's word--no chains that restrict His good grace and mercy to all men. The main thing holding most
people back these days, is that they believe they are not accepted just as they are. No one is required to make themselves better before approaching
the throne! It is impossible, at any rate. And this, therefore is the reason for the sacrifice--so that not even a single soul should have any
reason not to come in supplication before God, believing with fervent heart that He loves us all and that all things work for the good of those who
He doesn't love us only if we love Him--He loved us even before we knew Him. None of us--not a single solitary soul--has any reason to doubt
anything at all--He can and will do all things for the saving of the world, which includes all inhabitants thereof. Whatever is not of faith is of
sin. And that is the essence of the 'believing'--and how can one demonstrate faith if one doubts, themselves?
We are to extend the hospitality of the LORD showing--with love and without partiality--just how great God is. For if others see the willingness
toward charity in God's people, they will know then, how charitable God, Himself is.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the
world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat:
I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye
clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
There are hard times coming up in the world, and many who have no hope will suffer in fear and desolation, thinking there is nothing after that. To
allow them to believe only evil, in the darkness, is not love, and it is dead faith. But to instill in them, by deeds and example, that God is life
and love, and all things hopeful and good, that is love. We are to edify each other, not hurt each other. It is not our job to judge another
sinner--only to make known there is relief for one and all from the gloom we presently live under.
