Living for God
:love: Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin.
:love: As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.
:love: For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.
:love: They think it strange that you do not plunge with them into the same flood of dissipation, and they heap abuse on you.
:love: But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
:love: For this is the reason the gospel was preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be judged according to men in regard to the body, but live according to God in regard to the spirit.
:love: The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.
:love: Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
:love: Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
:love: Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
:love: If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Suffering for Being a Christian
:love: Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.
:love: But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

Thank you Jonah

Psalms 90 A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.

Lord, you have been our resting-place in all generations.
Before the mountains were made, before you had given birth to the earth and the world, before time was, and for ever, you are God.
You send man back to his dust; and say, Go back, you children of men.
For to you a thousand years are no more than yesterday when it is past, and like a watch in the night.
You bring our lives to an end just like a dream. We are merely tender grass
In the morning it is green; in the evening it is cut down, and becomes dry.
We are burned up by the heat of your passion, and troubled by your wrath.
You have put our evil doings before you, our secret sins in the light of your face.
For all our days have gone by in your wrath; our years come to an end like a breath.
The measure of our life is seventy years; and if through strength it may be eighty years, its pride is only trouble and sorrow, for it comes to an end and we are quickly gone.
Who has knowledge of the power of your wrath, or who takes note of the weight of your passion?
So give us knowledge of the number of our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Come back, O Lord; how long? let your purpose for your servants be changed.
In the morning give us your mercy in full measure; so that we may have joy and delight all our days.
Make us glad in reward for the days of our sorrow, and for the years in which we have seen evil.
Make your work clear to your servants, and your glory to their children.
Let the pleasure of the Lord our God be on us: O Lord, give strength to the work of our hands.

I Will Worship Him

Well said, we give our souls, live for, fear, serve, and worship Jesus and in return we get all alll all this. Most important to me we become heirs to the kingdom. Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more SERVANT, but a SON; and if a SON, then an HEIR of GOD through CHRIST. What more can we ask for-GOD is LOVE that why.:love:
