Show Diligence

God helps those who help themselves, is not in the Bible. The word diligence may convey some of that thought. We pray and do our part, we are to have diligence.

Diligence: earnestness in accomplishing, promoting, or striving after something.

Heb 6:10  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
Heb 6:11  And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
Heb 6:12  That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,  

John spoke through the Spirit that we are given understanding and that we are to keep away from idols.

1Jn 5:20  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
1Jn 5:21  Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

I see these idols that are prominent in our nation: greed and lusting for pleasure and entertainment. We are to repent, to change our thinking to the things of God. Be diligent, for the thief is stealing all that is holy from our nation. Stand up for Jesus and make a difference.
