    This verse is very true. I have a friend that uses me all the time. I detest it, and I hate it. I bring this to his attention and he waves it off as unimportant. I leave it be for months at a time, waiting for him to change. He has changed, a little, over time, but he is still a user. Jesus moves me first to forgive him. Second, Jesus moves me to pray for him. Third, Jesus moves me to be loving, kind, and even more giving. As I watch myself I am amazed that I do all this. I am encouraged by the Lord Jesus because I know that I am not capable of doing all this by my own self. The world says I should leave my friend, and that I should have nothing to do with him. Jesus desires I work with this man. Last night we had an argument, and the subject of him using me came up. He commanded I leave his room. I became angry. A few minutes later, as I sat working on my website, Jesus again moved me to forgive him, and to pray for him. I'm still upset with him this morning, and last night Jesus removed the anger after a few hours. This is NOT weakness, and I know it appears to be weakness. It is weakness to not try to be patient hoping this man changes and stops being a user. It is strength to want to see a person delivered. Sure, this is costing me NOW, but I believe that in time the rewards of him changing will outweigh the cost. . . . . . . .

    When we choose Jesus the moment we acceot him in to our life we are never be the same again . That's how Jesus cleanses us by his blood. He has given everything to us already our job is to love him and obey his words. Without our obedience to his words it's easy for us to be drowned in sin but God is merciful and he loves us he sanctified us by his blood Lets give thanks to his blood and praise hm

    This can be very hard counsel to follow. We imitate God and Jesus when we follow this though and his helps us to have their favor.
