    Thank God we have the Holy Spirit who is always with us in our walk with the Lord. If we are going to depend on our own efforts to fulfill the demands of Scripture and please God we will never get there Jesus says "...apart from me you can do nothing" Jh 15:5 We pray to God in Jesus name and depend on the Holy Spirit to help us in all things it makes life easier.

    Kent, YES but don't look for them to be splashed all over the internet, or on TV: as the true servants of Jesus will also walk in the steps of the Master, and not be seeking for people to recognize them. Like the Lord said; "the tree is known by its fruit;" to whomsoever God gives a gift, it will be from what is really put in him from God; and nothing manufactured by his own doings or methodology.

    Verse 31 shows negative traits and behavior that we need to put away. We must learn to control our temper and our speech when dealing with others.

    Juarez: Sometimes it is hard to forgive someone, even with Christ in my heart. I could boil for a while, grit my teeth,where's that baseball bat! Thanks be to God he can bring calm in the storm! All the sinful things we done that brought unbelievable pain to our Savior! He said I forgive you. The anger can turn to peace when you forgive those who hurt you. Face to face or in prayer or both.

    The verse about not laying down with anger in my heart is so very hard for me.Especially when others hurt me.Or someone I love or just any injustices against those whom can not defend themselves.How do you overcome this any advice?
