    V. 35 - "..... for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil." That's a hard one, even with His spirit dwelling in us, but He WILL giveth more Grace, if we sincerely pray for HIS love for these souls, but - it is hard. With God NOTHING is impossible. I've got a situation with someone right now, and it is hard. But God is able and faithful.

    Saintlymic: dealing with people can be hard,but we know that's how we will grow in Christ. iron sharpening iron. He may never come to Christ. You know what the world says leave it be. You have a good testimony because you are changing. In the end to hear well done thou good and faithful servant will be worth it all! That day will soon be upon us. Thank you for your testimony.

    If we do what He commands us to do,then we're His friends,we i' walk,worrk,fellowship,learn from Him

    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.
