10 To Continue There is a blessing in continuing… We must continue: Doing the Word; not hearing only Studying and Reading the Word Fasting and Praying Working on our Walk

11 Final Thought You can’t continue in what you haven’t changed, you can’t change what you haven’t acknowledged, you can’t acknowledge, what you haven’t examined, and you can’t examine what you haven’t even looked for.” “You can’t continue in what you haven’t changed, you can’t change what you haven’t acknowledged, you can’t acknowledge, what you haven’t examined, and you can’t examine what you haven’t even looked for.”

12 In Conclusion James 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. Blessed - to consecrate or sanctify by a religious rite; to bestow of divine favor on; to protect or guard from evil. “The easiest person to deceive is yourself.”
