1Corinthians 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;    

Today we continue in the third part of our study on biblical charity.  We are called Christians because we are Christ-like.  In order for us to live Godly we must present a Godly love.  Our verse today is the continuation of verse 4.  First we see that charity behaves itself.  Our verse says we should not behave “unseemly”.  In other words we should not behave in a manner that presents us unchristian-like.  We should not behave in a worldly manner.  This flesh is continually seeking a way to act ungodly.  It is a daily task trying to keep us in line with our behavior.  As we grow spiritually in grace, we are reaching for that mark of acceptable Godliness presenting the holiness of God.  But our flesh is like a first grader.  It knows better than to act unholy but there’s just something that keeps stirring up that urge to misbehave.  As we look further we see that charity “seeketh not her own”.  It is not selfish and self centered.  Charity “is not easily provoked”.  Dear friend be careful that the world does not provoke you to sin.  Jesus taught that we should be angry and sin not.  As we see this world getting more and more wicked it is hard for us not to be provoked over into a sinful anger.  Yes, we must stand against sin, but be careful not to stand against sin in a sinful manner.  Charity is not provoked.  And lastly today, we see that charity has clean thinking. Satan wants our head, your mind.  If he can get our head then he will get our heart and if he can get our heart he will get our hands.  His prerogative is to mar our testimony and to stop the touch of grace from being active in our life.  Friend, charity thinks on Godly things.   Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Charity behaves itself.  Amen.

Psalm 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

There are days and times in this life that we feel helpless and sometimes even hopeless.  As a child of God striving to live for Him we sometimes feel as though the world is overtaking us.  Sometimes it is as if the world may swallow us up at any moment.  If you never feel this way it is probably because you are not striving to live for Him.  It is a definite fact that the closer we walk with the Lord the closer the enemy will press on us.  It is in these times we cannot lean on our own strength but rather on the strength of the Lord.  As a child of the Lord we are safe within the salvation of Him.  Praise God for full salvation!  In our verse, He is mentioned as our strength in the time of trouble.  In other words, He is our fortified place.  In Him we are safe for evermore.  It may feel as though the world is about to swallow us, but if we are counted as “the righteous”, those that are striving to live in Him, for Him and to Him, then He is warring for us.  He is protecting us from the world.  He is our overseer.  Our verse mentions these times as “the time of trouble”.  This is the time of adversity, affliction, anguish, distress or tribulation.  A further look into the meaning of the Hebrew word for our “trouble” means a female rival.  Ha, wow.  No, I am not making this up.  The Hebrew word for “trouble” here in this verse is “tsarah” and it is a female rival.  When I ponder on this, the first person I think of is Jezebel.  We all remember Jezebel as the wicked wife of Ahab.  She had many of God’s people tortured and killed.  She was a mean woman.  My friend, there is nothing more scary than a mean woman.  I recall the torture she put Elijah through.  But… Elijah had the Lord on his side.  The Lord was his salvation.  Elijah pressed on for the glory of God and in the end he left this world in victory.  Jezebel died in judgment but Elijah ended his life here on earth in great victory.  Dear friend, we too can finish this life in great victory.  How?  We must strive to live this life for Him, in Him and to Him.  He will protect us and provide for us for He is our salvation.  He is the faithful God!  Are you dealing with trouble?  Look to the Lord for your salvation in this time of trouble.  He will sustain you.  Amen.

2Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

He is a faithful God!  The Word of God offers us hundreds and hundreds of promises that assure us of His faithfulness.  Let’s dig around in the Word this morning for some of those promises.  First and foremost He has promised the child of God that He will never leave us; Heb. 13:5…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  No matter how alone we may feel from time to time, if we are a saved child of God, we can be assured He is near us.  Next we can be assured of His faithfulness in our troubles; Psalm 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. 8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.  Glory Hallelujah!  We can be assured of His ability to save the sinner; Eph. 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.  He is faithful to offer us assurance of salvation through the presence of His Spirit; Eph. 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.  What the Lord does, He does right!  We can be assured of His faithfulness in keeping us saved; Eph. 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.  And when this life is over we can be assured of His faithfulness of securing us an eternal home in Glory; John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  Notice verse 16 says “everlasting life”!  John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  And lastly this morning, we must look at the verses that show His faithful return to carry the Bride of Christ Home.  We can be assured of His faithfulness of the rapture.  1Thess. 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.  We serve a mighty faithful God.  He is faithful!  Amen.

1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

We are blessed people!  To have a Saviour such as ours is a glorious thing.  His blood sacrifice on Calvary gave us the ability to live in freedom and faith beyond measure.  Jesus said; “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  First John chapter 1 is a wonderful reminder of the faithfulness of the Lord Jesus.  He is faithful not only to cleanse us from our sins, but He cleanseth us from our sins.  Our verse says that He “cleanse” us from our sins.  “Cleanse” means to purify.  But notice verse 7.  “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”  He uses the word “cleaneth”.  “Cleanseth” also means to purify, But notice the difference in the spelling of our action word in verse 9 and verse 7!  Verse 9 shows the action doing its job of purifying the Christian of the unrighteousness of sin.  But “cleanseth” has that wonderful three letter ending “eth” which shows a continuous available action.  Oh yes my friend, the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord is available 24-7 for the cleansing of our sins.  It purifies us every day, every hour, every minute and every second.  For example a fish aquarium  continuously pulls the water through a filtering system.  Now whatever dirt or particle that is in that water that causes it to be unclean, the filter will remove.  Even though there are times that the water that is passing through that filter is free of uncleanness, it still passes through the filter.  The aquarium water is under continuous available cleansing 24-7.  You see, maybe there is a lot of the time that the water is already clean, but cleansing is available just in case a tiny particle of uncleanness passes through.  My dear friend, the blood of Jesus was applied to our life the moment we were saved.  That cleansing power is available 24-7.  We might possibly be living clean right this minute, but just in case our flesh causes a particle of uncleanness, the cleansing power stands available.  Now, if you unplug that aquarium filtering system from the power outlet it will stop pulling water through the filter.  You see, the filtering system stands available and ready, but the power source to cause the water to flow through has been interrupted.  Notice verse 9 says; “if we confess our sins”.  When we ignore our daily sins it’s the same as unplugging the power source.  Just like in that fish tank, unclean stagnation begins to grow in our life.  Now don’t be confused in thinking if you fail to confess daily sin that you become a depraved lost sinner again, because remember the Word of God says He has sealed us.  Once we are redeemed as a child of God then we are adopted into the family of God through His grace.  Parents, your children are your children regardless, right??   If they are clean and behaving they are your children.  If they are filthy and acting out of rebellion then they are still your children.  Don’t get your adoption mixed up with your daily bath time.  My friend, cleansing is available!  Confess those sins.  The purifying blood of Christ stands in wait.  Amen!

2Corinthians 1:3  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

He is the God of mercy!  I don’t think our minds can ever fully wrap around the true meaning of His mercy.  It is His mercy that offers us the comfort we need to keep in the race.  Our verse here reveals to us that He is the God of “all comfort”.  By being the God of all comfort He meets our needs in many ways.  Let’s just look at a couple.  First He is the comfort we need as the Saviour.  He is Saviour.  We are comforted in Him as our Saviour because we are aware that He is available for us 24-7.  I am so glad He does not take vacation or decide to go on a three week absence.  He is available.  Not only is He available, but He is able.  Glory and Amen!  He is not just here for us in His availability, but He is able do and be anything we need.  We are comforted in Him as our Saviour.  Secondly, we are comforted in Him as the Spirit.  Thank God for the sweet, powerful Holy Ghost!  We can take much comfort in Him as the Great Holy Spirit.  His Spirit comforts us in His leading.  When we can’t figure out which way…He is the way!  Lord, lead us today!  And His Spirit comforts us by lifting us.  My friend there is no low that His Spirit cannot get below and lift.  He is our great lifter.  His Spirit can take us from darkness to the light.  His Spirit can take us from depression to great delight.  Amen!  And lastly He is our comfort through His scriptures.  Thank God for the true and powerful preserved Word.  We can gain much comfort from the scriptures.  The answer to life’s questions lies within the Word.  The relief from a tense situation lies within the Word.  Yes, we can receive great comfort from the Word of God.  It is His Word that gives us confidence in a weakening trial.  It is His Word that gives us courage in a threatening storm.  The Lord God, He is the comfort we need along this uncomfortable trail of life.  He is the God of “all comfort”.  Thank you Lord.  Amen.  

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
