    FOR OUR LEARNING

    Whatever things were written in earlier times, were written for your (our) Learning, that we,

    through patience and comfort of the scriptures, might have hope. (Romans 15:4)

    Receive him that is weak in the faith, but not to doubtful disputations. (Romans 14:1)

    Who are you to judge someone elses servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will

    stand, for God is able to make him stand. (Romans 14:4)

    Let us not, therefore, judge one another anymore; instead, make up your mind not to put any

    stumbling block or obstacle in your brothers way. (Romans 14:13)

    If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by

    your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died. (Romans 14:15)

    For the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

    For anyone who serves Christ in this way is acceptable to God, and approved of men. (Romans

    14:17, 18)

    Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and mutual edification. (Romans

    14:19)

    Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. (Romans 14:20)

    It is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. It is better not to eat

    meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to stumble, or is offended, or is

    made weak. (Romans 14:20, 21)

    Romans Chapter 15

    We who are strong ought to bear the infirmities (failings) of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

    Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For even Christ pleased not

    himself.

    Be like minded one toward another. The God of patience and consolation grant you power to glorify

    God with one mind and with one mouth.

    Then, accept one another as Christ also accepted us, in order to bring praise to God. (Verses 1-7)

    2Timothy 2:25, 26

    Gently instruct them that oppose you, in the hope that God will give them repentance leading them

    to knowledge of the truth, and that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who

    has taken them captive to do his will.

    BELIEVE IN JESUS MEANS

    Bible says, God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes

    in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

    What does it mean by believe in Jesus?

    God wants to tell everyone who believes in him, that they should also believe the following:

    1. My people should believe my Words.

    2. My people should believe my Promises.

    3. My people should believe my Prophecies.

    4. My people should believe my Power.

    1. Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my Words shall not pass away (Matthew 24:35).

    a. The Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing

    even to the dividing asunder of Soul and Spirit, and of the Joints and the marrow, and is a

    discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrew, 4:12).

    b. Gods Word is Truth. (John 17:17)

    c. His Word runs very swiftly. (Psalms 147:15)

    d. His Word is the food by which we live. Man shall not live by bread alone, but, by every word

    that comes out of His mouth. (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4)

    2. God made promises for His Children:

    a. Gods promises belong to his children; those who love him, and his commandments.

    b. God made promises to fulfill them.

    c. God wants his people to believe each one of his Promises.

    3. Gods Prophecies are True:

    a. His prophecies will certainly come to pass.

    b. Gods Children should not be ignorant of his Prophecies so that they may recognize them, and

    not wonder and stare like others, when they are fulfilled.

    4. Gods people must know the power of their God:

    a. God is almighty.

    b. Mightier than the heathen Gods.

    c. Nothing is impossible to God.

    d. Nothing can stand against him.

    e. Read the Bible and know the power of your God.

    f. Unless you believe and act on these, your confession that you believe in Jesus is not useful in

    anyway.

    BE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE

    His divine power has given us ever thing we need, for life and godliness, through

    the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue. Through these he has

    given us exceedingly great and precious promises, so that by these you might be

    partakers of the divine nature.

    Ever wonder why promises are given?

    So that, by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, and escape the

    corruption in the world caused by evil desires. (2 Peter 1:3, 4)

    For this reason, make every effort to add these things to your faith:

    1. To your faith -- goodness

    2. To your goodness -- knowledge

    3. To knowledge -- Self-control

    4. To self-control -- patience

    5. To patience -- godliness

    6. To godliness -- brotherly kindness

    7. To brotherly kindness -- Love (charity)

    For, if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from

    being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge and work of our lord Jesus

    Christ.

    But if any one does not have them, he is short-sighted and blind, and has forgotten that

    he has been cleansed from his past sins.

    Therefore, brothers, give diligence (steady attention and effort) to make your calling

    and election sure; for if you do these things, You Shall Never Fall.

    And you will receive a rich welcome into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and

    Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:5-11)

    Peace be with you! Amen!

    ENDURANCE

    Hebrew Chapters 11 & 12

    We know many heroes of faith:

    By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith Enoch was

    transformed that he should not see death. By faith Noah, when warned about things

    not yet seen, in holy fear, built an ark to save his family. By faith Abraham, when he

    was called to go out into a place which he should later receive for an inheritance,

    obeyed. Likewise, Moses and Joshua believed that their God was all powerful, and led

    the people of Israel into the Promised Land. Think about Samson, David, and

    Samuel the prophet and so on.JESUS is the perfect example of our hero of this age,

    from whom we can learn ENDURANCE.

    v1: Therefore, we also, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily

    ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

    v2: Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was

    set before him endured the cross despising the shame and has sat down at the right

    hand of the throne of God.

    v3: For, consider him who endured such hostility from sinners against himself lest you

    become weary and discouraged in your minds.

    Endure Gods chastening

    v5: Do not forget the exhortation which speaks to you as sons, My son, do not

    despise the chastening of the Lord, nor, be discouraged when you are rebuked by him.

    v6: For who the Lord loves, he chastens, and scourges every son who he receives.

    v7: If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons for, what son is there

    whom a father does not chasten?

    v8: But, if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then, you

    are illegitimate and not sons.

    EXHORTATION

    Hebrew 3:12 to 19

    v12: Take head brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in

    departing from the living God.

    v13: But, exhort one another daily while it is called Today, lest any of you be

    hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

    v19: Israelites could
