Nevertheless everybody should live the life that the Lord called him and to which God called him, because judgement of God will face us individually, not as family or group but individually.
everybody should stay in the same condition in which he was called. Here is a question to you. Were you a slave when you were called? Don’t let that bother you of course. If you have a chance to become free, take advantage of the opportunity. Don’t be slave of other people’s thoughts, you have a calling of God inside you, your gifted with talents, gifts of God are with you always when you invite Him in your life to be your salvation into or to eternal life.
Brothers and sisters let everyone stays in the same way or condition in which he/she was called by God. Brothers and sisters Abram was 99,years old. The Lord appeared to Abram and announced” I am God Almighty, Live in constant awareness that I am always with you and be blameless.(ref, Gen 17*1).
Paul said this word when he was writing to Ephesians, chapter 5*3-6. “ you Christians are not to talk about these things among yourselves. They are not fit to be mentioned among saints. Do not let anyone persuade you by plausible words that things are otherwise, for it is for cause that the wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience.”
it takes power of to live today really. Out in the business world , with its sharp practices and its easy morality, with its constant emphasis upon the gratification of flesh, indeed it takes power to live today. But to tell you the truth that power we need to live with or to have is of God. Not ours, God planned that power before hand. That power is God WILL.
This is the Will of God, your sanctification, that you may be a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself. What a glory, what a marvelous thing, that in the midst of this sweeping current of immorality washing everything down stream to utter destruction, that there may be those who are able to stand in wholesome purity, reflecting the love and grace and glory of the life of our Lord Christ Jesus. That is a will of God. When your have found that, the matter of guidance to takes care of itself. It is easy for us to follow the lead of God when love and peace are in our heart. It takes God to empower us.
WILL YOU, IN A MOMENT OF SILENT, QUIT PRAYER COMMIT YOURSELF AGAIN TO HIM, TO HIS KEEPING GRACE IN THIS PERILOUS WORLD?.
Indeed what a good question.What kind of a life pleases God? What ingredients is needed OR absolutely essential before any life is pleasing to Him? Perhaps some of you are already remembering (ref, Hebrews 11*6) “Without faith it is impossible to please Him(God). Notice it doesn’t say it is difficult, But it says it is impossible!Therefore the life that pleases God is the life that is lived by faith.
This is essential quality which Paul had imparted to the Thessalonian Brothers and sisters by the given to him through the Lord Jesus. They must live by Faith and trust to the Lord.
Faith in this context, simply see means believing that God’s view of a matter is true no matter what everybody else says.. How you look at a temptation makes all the difference in the world in a that it has upon you. If God says a thing is bad and we says it is good, we will soon be doing it, and be under the power of it,and if God says a thing is good and we say it is bad we will never discover the glory and liberty of it.
Faith believes that in the cross of Christ Jesus, God took your old life and behaviors, received from Adam, and faith believe that in its place God gave you a totally new basis of operation so that you no longer are trying to be good-by your own efforts but you are putting into the practice of God’s promises to in you and through you, what you can’t do yourself, which is simply everything.
The faith we have in life for God is a relationship, because faith determines the relationship between us and God. Faith we had in God it tells how close we are to God. Our relationship with God is built on the sacrifice of Christ Jesus and our acceptance of that sacrifice through obedience Faith.
That faith trust’s that GOD not only exists, but that He also Godly cares about us. And our desire to know Him, His Holy Spirit teaches us the plan of God of us. Not to start new one, but only of God. Everytime we allow peace and love to rule in our heart. He eagerly and longs to bless those who seek Him with all their heart.
But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God. Must believe that He is God.
Christ is a promise of God for people, in form of love and salvation, to save us from death we are born into, the key hat can release us form death, is to never forget the teaching of Christ and the words of God. But to keep them, because their in us already working the purpose and will of God. for the commandment of God.gives peace and love.
We must bind the commandments of God around our neck and write them on the tablet of our heart. So that we may find favor and good success in the sight of God. We must trust in the Lord with all our heart, and we are not suppose to lean on our own understanding, in all, acknowledge Him.and He will make straight your paths, be not wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
Trusting in Christ Jesus, is a healing to you flesh and refreshment to your bones, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or weary of the reproof, for the Lord’s reproof, for the reproof’s whom He loves
The first born from the dead. If the spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His spirit who dwells in you.
In fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For if we have been united with Him in death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. The Lord Jesus Christ will transforms our lowly body to be like His glorious body. By the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself.
Jesus Christ said” I am resurrection and the life, whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall live.
The Lord is a God of knowledge, and by Him actions are weighed. For what is exalted among men is a abomination in the sight of God. Don’t be deceived,
God is not mocked. For whatever one sows that what he will also reap, for one who sows to his flesh will also reap corruption, but the one who sows from the spirit, will also reap eternal life. The Lord sees not as man sees, man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
But whatever gain I had I counted as loss for the sake of Christ Jesus. Because He is our strength, salvation, our healer. Anyway what will it profit a man if he gain the whole earth/ world. And forfeits his life? Or what shall a man give in return for his life?
- Behold , delight in the truth in the inward being, He is trying your heart. Purpose your mouth to not transgression.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him. Mary sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Trust in the Lord, you shall be strengthened, ponder in your heart on you bed. And be silent, be careful, and know that He is your God, didn’t He told you that if you believe you would see His glory? ” Abstain from every form of evil.”(ref 1Thess 5*22).
Wait on the Lord, Therefore do not throw away your confidence In Christ Jesus, He has a reward for you. Eternal life with abundance of Heaven. Have you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is everlasting God. The greater of earth and heaven, He doesn’t faint or grow weary! His understanding is unsearchable, He give’s power to the faint and to him who has no might He increases strength.
Fear not, for the Lord is with you , be not dismayed for He is your God. He will uphold you with His righteous right hand.
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.(ref, Psalm 90*12)”. When we lose our sense of urgency to live for God. We end up wasting our time! God has plans for us, for this world and for His church. Without God’s gift of “Spiritual Arithmetic” we will never gain heart’s of wisdom. But God has planned a way for us to gain heart of wisdom.
Ask for wisdom without doubting. ” If any man lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not. And it shall be given to him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering for he that wavereth is like a wave of sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.”(ref, James 1*5-7).
Trusting God for wisdom has a huge effect on us and the way we conduct our lives. And it make us to be stable in Him, to live for HIM. Because He chosed us before the foundation of the world, that we should be Holy and blameless before Him, In Love.
