Shalom Brothers and Sisters. I just wanted to share a word today with you all.
Titus 2:12-15 states, And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ (Yahshua Hamashiach) , will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds. You must teach these things and encourage the believers to do them. You have the authority to correct them when necessary, so don’t let anyone disregard what you say.
Living on this earth is not easy at all because we deal with so much evil in the world daily. Our goal should be to turn away from all unrighteousness. I think it’s best to meditate on our own actions daily instead of pointing out someone else’s wrong doing. Let’s focus on fixing ourselves and if your brother and sister are willing to listen and wants your help then guide them in the right direction. If your brother or sister does not want your help and refuses to listen to you just pray for them because you can’t force them to listen to your wise words. There’s a time and a season for everyone’s growth so I think it’s best to remain patient and let the Most High work on them. People are going to do what they want to do so we must focus on our own spiritual growth. We must understand everyone doesn’t have the same desire when it comes to spiritual growth and doing away with sin.
Since I am teaching this I will definitely make sure that I do what I am teaching. I have flaws and I seek correction from my Father all the times. I also lack patience when dealing with others because I want so badly for people to understand but I know I can only do so much. A person must desire change for themselves and I am constantly reminding myself of this. Some times I get frustrated with others because I find myself repeating things multiple times but I need to learn to just let it go and let the Most High handle it. I just want to help people but I’m realizing that going over the same things are pointless in some situations. Please pray for me brothers and sisters because I don’t want to be frustrated or lack patience with others.
I am evaluating my life and I think you should also. It’s very important to get in a habit of evaluating our own lives daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. We need to make it a habit so we can see our progress. I’m all about change and a new beginning so let’s change our negative ways. If you are committing sins in your life please seek the Father so that he can help you overcome your sins. You don’t want to remain in your sin so please allow the Father to cleanse you from all evil. It is going to take some time but you will get there.
