Thought For Today - July 6
 Wheat among tares!

    The bible says that we who are saved, the born again children of God, and the heirs of the kingdom of God, are living here on this earth as wheat growing in a field among tares. That is, we occupy the same earth; the same space; we breath the same air; bathe in the same sunshine; and enjoy all the benefits of God's love and mercy as the wicked non believers do. The bible says that his rain and his sunshine and his blessings fall upon the just and the unjust alike. In order for him to water the wheat, the tares are watered also, until such time as the harvest when the wheat will be gathered into barns, and the tares cast into the furnace of hell to be burned.
    As we live here among the tares, awaiting the harvest of souls, let us, as the wheat, not allow the tares to choke us and keep us from receiving all the blessings that the Lord has in store for us. Let us not be as the non believers, and the scoffers, ignoring the warning of God and being disobedient to him. God wants his own redeemed children, the wheat to be separated and sanctified unto himself.
    "Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts. And saying, where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: but the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto the fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot and blameless." 2 Peter: 3-14
    "Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. A-men: 2 Peter 3:17,18.
