VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. So that we will not grow disinterested and become sluggards

"In order that you may not grow disinterested and become [spiritual] sluggards,"

Slothful, sluggish or lazy came from the Greek word: "nothros" meaning slow, sluggish, indolent, dull, languid. It's impossible to be lazy if we keep our diligence until the end.

Proverbs 12:24 (Amplified Bible)

12:24 The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slothful will be put to forced labor.

Romans 12:11 (Amplified Bible)

12:11 Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.

Hebrews 5:11 (Amplified Bible)

5:11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight].

2 Peter 1:10 (Amplified Bible)

1:10 Because of this, brethren, be all the more solicitous and eager to make sure (to ratify, to strengthen, to make steadfast) your calling and election; for if you do this, you will never stumble or fall.

Laziness has a source, if you're lazy, it's because you lack understanding of GOD's WORD. GOD's WORD is JESUS CHRIST. Grow in understanding the LORD JESUS thru His WORDS and you will never be lazy again.

Most people spend their lives going to bed when they're not sleepy and getting up when they are! —Cindy Adams

—Phillips' Treasury of Humorous Quotations

B. Be imitators of those who have inherited the promises

"but imitators, behaving as do those who through faith (by their leaning of the entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness) and by practice of patient endurance and waiting are [now] inheriting the promises"

Jeremiah 6:16 (Amplified Bible)

6:16 Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look; and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is; then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it!

1 Thessalonians 1:6 (Amplified Bible)

1:6 And you [set yourselves to] become imitators of us and [through us] of the Lord Himself, for you welcomed our message in [spite of] much persecution, with joy [inspired] by the Holy Spirit;

1 Peter 3:13 (Amplified Bible)

3:13 Now who is there to hurt you if you are zealous followers of that which is good?

When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other. —Eric Hoffer

—Phillips' Treasury of Humorous Quotations

Yes, we are all free to imitate JESUS.

IX. CONCLUSION:

I am exploding in Heavenly Wisdom, filled with the Spirit of Revelation and I am like CHRIST in this world.

1John 4:17 (Contemporary English Version) If we truly love others and live as Christ did in this world, we won't be worried about the day of judgment.
