I must say this morning that there is this one thing for sure; as the scriptures states, “people are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades. But the word of the Lord remains forever. And that word is the Good News that was preached to you.”
God’s Word has promised that the OLD life that I once lived, the natural life will fade away and that I will have a NEW life FOREVER!
Isn’t it exciting to know, that we will live forever, when our life and belief is in God and His Word. As a born again believer, we are guaranteed eternal life with God our Father, never ending… yes, we shall live forever! Our soul is forever with the Lord.
Remember, it is God who does the refining, but it is we who must be willing to let God make us holy and pure; and it is we who have to be determined, NEVER to return to darkness, once we’ve been in the light.
1 Peter 2:9 – 11 (NLT) But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.”
Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. God your creator has chosen you as His very special child…He has made us priests, holy and pure.
May you make this your prayer as I make it my prayer… “Thank you, Father God for placing a desire in me to want to obey you!”
1 Peter 2:16 (NLT) For you are free, yet you are God’s slaves, so don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do evil.
There is complete freedom in Christ Jesus. God has given you freedom to do everything that He wants you to do.
Because you are FREE from the law, you have FREEDOM to do what God wants you to do, keeping you from doing ALL wrong.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
