    This vers is a very dependable anchor to the victory. In real life situation there if your mind is not sober nothing inspired you can do. Therefore, for one to work effectively in the vine yard must be sober .

    Eunice. T. (if you ever see this) - you are so very right about our life in Christ being 'smooth'; Yes, we will have trials to test us, but God never puts on us more than we can bear, and knowing that makes our walk with Him - a smooth one. Our trials are nothing compared to the Heaven that awaits us. " ... Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame, for the JOY that was set before Him."
  • Wayne
    Sean, 1 Cor.5:10 tells us we would have to leave this planet to not associate with the sinners of this world. Pray to the Lord for grace, each day, to live in that situation and be a witness for the Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. GB
