Living by sight and not
by faith (2Corinthians
5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight")
causes failure in trusting God enough to be sure heretofore
unseen future joys are attained.
These are grasped only by the diligent.
Reading the topic Creation,
By Evolution Or God? will definitely increase your faith in Him who
3:9 "And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery,
which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created
all things by Jesus Christ."
This will bring forth more
of God's Holy Spirit in you to affect your
heart. Once your heart is affected,
6:33 "But seek you first the kingdom of
God, and his righteousness; and all
these things shall be added unto you."
-We are here to make a noticeable
change or effect with
a compassionate heart.
Have you ever asked yourself what you could do this day that might make
a positive difference in another's life?
-We are here to encourage
others, to let the light of Jesus Christ in
us shine to others in helpful good works -Matthew
-We are here to learn to
live by grace.
-We are here to develop the
important quality of patience.
-We are here to become
in Christ (Colossians 2:6,10) through
various trials and tribulations.(yeah,
1:6) needed for qualities
of eternal character and all that we will
then be doing. But, it is exciting when you realize to the best of
your ability, just how big this
living, powerful beyond all imagination, being is, that we call God!
We are here to give God
that which is necessary (Hebrews 12:28)
to allow the Master Potter.(Romans
Isaiah 64:8; Jeremiah
18:4,6; Lamentations 4:2; Ephesians

does He establish our hearts?}) to thoroughly shape us, so that we become
'fit in the Lord':.Galatians
4:19 "My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ
be formed in you." 2Corinthians
3:3 "Forasmuch as you are manifestly declared to be the epistle.(letter).of
Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the
living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart."
-We are here to
of greater value to others in order to serve
and help others:.Jeremiah
4:22 "For my people is foolish, they have not known me. They are sottish.(stupid,
have none understanding. They are wise to do evil,
but to do good they have no knowledge."
-We are here to put good
things in other's hearts,
best we know how to, and as others may accept:.Titus
No matter how poor you may
be, you always have something to give. Prayer
is a most powerful way to help others and society. No one but God sees
6:6; 1Timothy 5:5.
Selfish people would rather
spend time on silly time consuming pursuits for themselves than find out
the needs of, and pray for another. Selfish people lack compassion.
-We are here to learn how
to interact with
-We are here to express what
we want. For example, if one wants friends, he must express friendliness,
and so on with other things too:.Proverbs
18:24 "A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly. And there

and compassion, not the words of perhaps, disagreeable doctrines (anyone
have religious people come to
their door?), that is important in being a light
to the world:.Romans

He did not 'turn off' those he met. When talking to a group of
Paul used psychology.
He found a way to tell others
about the true God by appealing
to their interests (Acts 17:23)
and finding common ground for agreement (1Corinthians
9:19-22), rather than inciting.negative
When dealing with a mixed
