Keep in mind that when sin is viewed superficially, it is dealt with superficially. Immorality is just as bad now as it was in the past. The difference is that now we flaunt it. It used to be done in secret, but now it is done in the open. The greatest judgment God can send on His people is letting them have their own way. Without faith… nothing is possible. With it… nothing is impossible. We meet God through entering into a relationship both of dependance on Jesus as our Saviour and Friend and of discipleship to Him as our Lord and Master. Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them — every day begin the task anew. Those who wait to repent until the eleventh hour often die at ten thirty. God delights in forgiveness. I do not care how vile you have been, if you are willing to come back, God is willing and ready to receive you. No one just wakes up one morning and decided to believe in Jesus Christ. The reason they believe is because the Holy Spirit convicts them of their sin, draws them to Christ, raises them to life, and grants them faith. Our forgiving love toward men is the evidence of God’s forgiving love in us. It is a necessary condition of the prayer of faith. Satan is ever seeking to inject that poison into our hearts to distrust God’s goodness - especially in connection with his commandments. That is what really lies behind all evil, lusting and disobedience. A discontent with our position and portion, a craving from something which God has wisely held from us. Reject any suggestion that God is unduly severe with you. Resist with the utmost abhorrence anything that causes you to doubt God’s love and his loving-kindness toward you. Allow nothing to make you question the Father’s love for his child. The most important lesson we can learn is how to pray. Prayers do not die, prayers live before God, and God’s heart is set on them. A continual looking forward to the eternal world is not a form of escapism or wishful thinking, but one of the things a Christian is meant to do. The great thing, and the only thing, is to adore and praise God. Some read the Bible to learn and some read the Bible to hear from heaven. I find that doing the will of God leaves me with no time for disputing about His plans.
