The Danger In Forbearance


"But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil" (1 Thess.5:21-22).

It is necessary for us to give heed to the Word of God and be challenged to think. In doing so, we will take a stance on what is right or wrong and make sure that we stand for right... If God were not forbearing, man would have never made it past Eden. We must give Him praise for His forbearance, but not walk though life with blinders on. The danger is not that we recognize His kindness and forbearance. The danger lies in a presumption that He will save us, even if we allow ourselves to blend into a worldly scene that knows little of holiness, goodness and truth... The danger is that we may wink at injustice and embrace the way of the world, and divorce the "edge" from the Word that He has committed to our care... To put into the simplest of terms, God wants us to be good. As we read in today's verses, He wants us to abstain from every form of evil and hold fast to that which is good. The KJV goes as far to say all appearances of evil...It is God's desire for us to obey His Son, through His forbearance, despite our sins, He has sent to us...

Have a great day... T G I F Thank God I'm Forgiven.... Love mark Phil.4:11
