When we hear professed celestial children of God relating Heaven to some place in the sky that the flesh goes when it dies, we must pray harder.When we hear the professed eternal Children of God talking about this and that after we die, we must pray harder.When we hear Christians having a hard time with understanding of spiritual adultery and use the examples of marital adultery between husbands and wives on earth as a means of to start judging the flesh we must pray harder. When we remain as servants and never ask for or receive our inheritance as grown men and remain spiritual babes we must pray harder.When we turn every Bible discussion into laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment, we should pray that God permit to us leave the principles of the doctrine of Christ, and being grounded and rooted let us if God permit that we go on unto perfection and we should pray that we not wilt again.Eddie
Pray wisely, according to truth and from an understanding of God's will and watch God work His wonders!!

Reply to HopePurifies and sojourner7We Christians are the husbandmen of the vineyard of our Lord who love the poor, elderly, handicapped, and those who are unloved, shunned and despised and we are the ones who must turn to manifest our Devine love and glorify Christ Jesus.We dont send someone in our name, we go ourself. I pray when the owner of the vineyard I am charged to work in returns, He will find the resources He gave me producing much good fruit.Eddie
Yes, Jesus sends us forth to minister the gospel and earnestly desires that we bear much fruit, and so prove to be His disciples! 8-)
