Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
Luke 12:45-51 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delay his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder (scourge severely), and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes (heavy affliction), shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Are you watching? Do you want to be a better person?
Galatians 5:13-26 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery(have unlawful intercourse with another’s wife), fornication(adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc.), uncleanness(in a moral sense: the impurity of lustful, luxurious, profligate living), lasciviousness(unbridled lust) , 20Idolatry(the worship of false gods), witchcraft(the use or the administering of drugs), hatred(hostile, hating, and opposing another), variance(contention, strife, wrangling), emulations(envious and contentious rivalry, jealousy), wrath(to slay, kill), strife(self-seeking pursuit), seditions(division), heresies(sect), 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings(rioting), and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Father we ask for Your forgiveness when we so often stubble. We want in our hearts to be better persons. Buy Your Son’s Holy Spirit we have strength to over come, Buy Your mercy shown through Your Son’s sacrifice we live eternal. Halle lu YAH
