PEDDLING  GOD’S  WORD

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ”.(II Corinthians 2:14‭-‬17 NKJV).

DESTRUCTIVE DOCTRINES

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber”. (II Peter 2:1‭-‬3 NKJV).

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ”. (I Corinthians 2:1‭-‬5‭, ‬10‭-‬16 NKJV).

But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.[I Peter 4:7-11]

James 1:5
If any of us lack wisdom, let us ask of God, …and it shall be given unto us.

+Maturity does not come with age but with the acceptance of responsibility.
+If we are not willing to change, then we are not ready to mature.
+If we cannot take responsibility for our failures, then we do not have the maturity we need to succeed.
+Never wait until your life is on the line and your back is against the wall before you are willing to change.
+When change is necessary not to change is unwise, foolish and destructive.
Remember Proverb 4:7
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all of your getting get understanding.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we LOOK NOT at the things which ARE SEEN, but at the things which are NOT SEEN: for the things which are SEEN are TEMPORAL; but the things which are NOT SEEN are ETERNAL.
+Life without Christ is a CRISIS (a time of intense difficulty, trouble or danger).
