I think we as Christians tend to forget many things. First as we grow older some of us get closer to God and some of us have to be chastised many times by God. (Myself included wish this were not so.) We forget that when we were born again we were filled with the Holy Spirit and the world knows this. They know that we are of God and they are not. We forget our mission is to preach the gospel of salvation to the lost and strengthen the brotherhood. 5 For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, Men and women who are not Christians know there is a God. Some have been given over to a reprobate mind because they hated the truth and wanted to believe a lie. This is what the Bible says. Don't give up preach the gospel tell others about Jesus. Be bold in your faith. Believe God will change lives and save those around you. Let us begin to pray and study the Word of God more and more each day until the end. May God bless and keep you for all eternity.
