    1 Thessalonians 5:24 "The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." WE AS THE BODY OF CHRIST MUST BE REMINDED THAT THE ONE WHO CALLED US OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT IS FAITHFUL! WE CAN NOT ALLOW THE DARKNESS IN THIS WORLD DISTRACT US FROM THE ONE WHO IS FAITHFUL TO US EVEN WHEN WE ARE NOT SO FAITHFUL! THE ENEMY IS THROWING A LOT OF LIES AND FALSE DOCTRINE IN THE WORLD TO TRY

    I think that forgiveness and salvation is there for the asking, HE welcomes us with open arms, we just have to ask and accept.

    I wish that this chapter was read to all the brenthen as asked in verse 27, but even more that the real saints of God would began to be doers and not just hearers alone. My biggest struggle has been with those who proclaim the name of Christ. Therefore making the pursue of Christ harder than it should be.
