Message Topic:                       Putting P.E.P. into your Step P. – PatienceE. – Excitement/Encouragement/ExpectationP. – Perseverance In considering this topic the Bible has a lot of things to say about it. There are 3 main sections, but as you will see, many times these subjects over lap. 2 Corinthians 13:1  This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.When we put a little P.E.P.  in our Step there is nothing that we cannot do/achieve for the Glory of Almighty God.  P - Patience – The state or quality of being patient; the power of suffering with fortitude; uncomplaining endurance of evils or wrongs, as toil, pain, poverty, insult, oppression, calamity, etc. Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Psalm 37:7-9                7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who            prospereth in his way, because…

Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Amanda Shannon's discussion Is God OK With Sin?
"Yet we continue to sin.  The issue is that our concept of sin is all wrong, yes we all acknowledge that we sin by thought, word and action, but what about disobedience to God?  In the days of the Old Testament the biggest sin was disobedience, or rebellion against God, this is an ongoing there throughout.  Often murder took a back seat to breaking the Sabbath simply because observing the Sabbath came higher in the Ten Commandments.  Sure they were both sins but the first part of the commandments are more important because they are about our relationship with God.  These commands are so basic, the seventh day was designated as Holy, not the first day, Sunday, yet we do not regard that as a sin."

"Hi, Mary! So nice hearing from you!

Salvation is by grace through faith but good works are to follow the new birth and don't cause us to be born again or to stay saved but are evidence that we have received new life in Him.

Grace is given to us so that we may live in the Spirit and walk in the Spirit and spiritually mature toward Christ-likeness.

I know I miss the mark all too often. I'm thinking of James 3. He says we all fail in many ways and much if it has to do with the tongue. At times in our lives we can feel stuck and even feel like it's futile because we seem to sin so much. We can feel like giving up and that's when we need encouragement to stay in the battle. But we must battle the flesh and we are told to go to the throne of grace to ask for help in our time of need.

Regeneration is the beginning and glorification is the end, and sanctification will be complete in the moment when we see Christ and are instantly conformed perfectly to His image (1 John 3:2; 1 Corinthi…"

http://www.theempoweredchristian.com/letter-to-the-faithful-32.htmlHow will you fight to win but in love? Know not that man has been blinded by this world’s principalities and out of fear are many acting in defence. For the world has taught them to fear for the lack of the things that occupies the thoughts of men and the world. Many of the Faith believe these days are more complicated to those of our Lord Jesus and therefore by and in love has been binded. This is a lie of religion and of those who having not shut the doors of compromise and empathy.

Mary Osborn replied to Amanda Shannon's discussion Is God OK With Sin?
"The Worthy News Brief devotional this morning talks about how sin can lie dormant like the volcano in the Philippines, and then suddenly erupt. The people living on the island are surprised because it's been so long since it erupted, they forgot it was a volcano. They began to see it as a mountain. I put parts of the devotional here.  :-)
Solomon writes a profound statement in his book of Proverbs, which, when paraphrased goes something like this: "Can someone play with fire in his lap without incinerating his clothes?" (Proverbs 6:27) The enemy of our souls would love for us to believe that we can somehow play with sin, without it negatively affecting our spirit and our walk with the Lord -- oh how deceptive Satan can be! D.L. Moody said, "When you're thinking sin, think scripture!"Let's be on guard! Sin is a dormant volcano which can erupt at ANY moment and set our house on fire. How do we prepare? First, by being aware of the possibility...then...;"Thy word have I hid in my heart t…"

Mary Osborn replied to Amanda Shannon's discussion Is God OK With Sin?
"I always have after thoughts. Sorry about that. After I accepted Jesus Christ, my family was like...What happened to her? I acted differently and my face softened. I look different than before."
Mary Osborn replied to Amanda Shannon's discussion Is God OK With Sin?
"Hi Amanda, God bless you!
Being saved is not a license for a sinfest. Sorry, I made up that word. On the other hand, God knows we will sin. God is so loving and merciful. Food for thought, something I noticed, when I was experiencing the same challenges and temptations over and over again. It's important to change what we are doing. If a person is seeing the same temptations over and over again, whatever that test is, pass the test. Stop doing the same things over and over. I'm not sure I'm saying this well.
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. (Psalm 145:8 ESV)
But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, crying out, “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too. (Acts 17:6 KJV)
When we first accept Jesus Christ, it may seem like everything is upside down and messed up. Depends on the person, but some people it takes adjustment. The people around you may think everything…"

The world's most populous nation has seen one of history's most remarkable events: 2.7 million Christians (1975) have miraculously become over 75 million. A massive Church has arisen out of the one of the harshest and most widespread persecutions in history.

This momentum has not slowed. God continues to move! But critical needs remain.

"And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory."
