1. Thank you for this link to your post that gives insight on the set of verses particularly the real meaning of the phrases “take away” and “thrown away” and the HOPE it brings to us sinners. This is an interesting story too about Planty and a couple’s love on the six year old house plant. GOD loves and that is why He disciplines us. Thank you for your link. How are you, Mandy?

    1. Thus is an interesting story of JESUS that covers the long process of sanctification, Crissy. Because the Triune GOD loves us, He reveals a warning, disciplines us, and continuously sanctifying us to be like JESUS CHRIST as we walk by faith in Him along His path! Thank you my friend! GOD bless you and your family!

  1. God has had to do a lot of pruning on me over my lifetime, but I welcome it! He’s the best gardener and Father. Thank you, Gersom. πŸ™πŸ™Œ

    1. True, Lesley, GOD is best Gardener and Father! We praise the Triune GOD for never letting us go. Because of His immense love for us we are molded, disciplined, and continuously shown the Truth until we overcame (1 John 5:4) and conquered (Romans 8:37) by His grace. GOD bless you and your family!

      1. You’re absolutely right, Gersom – He has never let me go despite my many times of being wilful. God bless you and yours too! πŸ™Œ


        1. Lesley, that is the sign that you are truly saved. It is through the pruning process that we will know that GOD owns us and we are His. We thank the Triune GOD for His work in us that we can someday, worship Him in Person in His throne. A blessed day and weekend ahead!

        2. Your words are a blessing, Gersom, thank you! I love my life on our beautiful earth, but I get excited and overwhelmed when I think of being in the presence of the Father!
          You have a great day and weekend too. πŸ˜€

    1. You are absolutely right, Jim! It is through the union with JESUS that we accepted by faith alone, as we will be like CHRIST and He working in us through faith by clothing us with His righteousness so we will not be condemned on His judgement seat. Without JESUS–accepting Him by faith alone as the GOD and Savior who redeemed us, who was resurrected by GOD the FATHER, and by faith in Him we follow His way–in the equation, what is sanctification for or who sanctifies the person; what does this kind of sanctification led to.

        1. Jim, there is no need to apologize, I’m also late in responding due to the difference in timezones and when I’m still responding to your comments at 2:00AM, I’ll we awake at 10AM plus.

    1. True, Alan, we are molded daily to be like JESUS CHRIST, take up His cross and follow His path. Everyday in our lives GOD works in us to be a new creation, to overcome the world, and until He brings us to completion. GOD bless you and your family!
