Did You Pass Your Test


1 John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?                                       (We are to operate our lives in His love for Him, others, and ourselves!  We are never, ever to coexist with hate living our lives!  That would be called, a house that is divided!  You will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, if you have any hate in your heart for anyone.)

Luke 10:30And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.                                                                                   (The priest, and the Levite men were suppose to have a heart of God.  That’s what their title claims them to be, Men of God!  They did not even offer to help the man who was badly beaten up by thieves no less.  The man with no title to his name, had one key ingredient to him that God very much values in us all (LOVE).  This exactly what Jesus would do for us if he was here now!  He would have compassion on us, and come to our aid carrying us all the way through to safety by His side.  The 10 commandments is based on love for God, and love for one another. People will come and go.  In and out of your life for various reasons, and seasons.  God allows all things good, and bad into our lives so he can prune our hearts!  This will allow you to have the right fruit tree for harvesting time.  It will also allow God to judge your heart.)

Matthew 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
(When you give with a compassionate heart by aiding your Brother, or Sister in Christ for whatever their needs are. You are doing for them, as if you would be doing it for Jesus. Having the pure motives flowing from your heart, when you help someone in a time of need.)
