That will take:
Holy purchase.
Holy plans.
Holy parts.
Holy people.

IV. Praying.

This refers to praying when no one else can hear and what you will never tell anyone else. Matthew 6:6.

Believers must develop the love of God by learning of Him.
We must never stray from God’s love.

If we would treat people that wrong us they way we wronged Jesus life would be different for us first then them later.
The problem we have is rooted in our bad temper.
The problem we have is pouting.
The problem we have is unforgiving.
What we need is to reflect on Who gave us eternal life and the forgiveness He showed us and the reconciliation He provided.

VII. Presenting.

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
There is a day planned in the future.
That day we will not be proud.
That day we will not be holding grudges.
That day we will not be fault finding.
On that day we will be trophies that bear his name and His accomplishment in the one thing you could never ever do:
keep you from falling
present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy
Ephesians 2:8–10
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


Take a long look at these responsibilities.
They like you are all His.
Is He accomplishing these responsibilities in you?
