This morning I must say; ALL will be judged accordingly in regards to their works and deeds. It is enough to evaluate our own lifestyle and convictions according to God’s Word and the direction of the Holy Spirit.
We are to be the reflection of Christ in all we say and do? Sharing love, sharing God and sharing life (the very gospel of Jesus Christ) is truly all we should be doing in this life.
The Holy Spirit reveals Christ in us as a beliver. When we choose Christ, we choose to live a life of holiness and purity, an example of Christ in us…we will become the example of Christ in us. Yes, His righteousness in us has made us righteous for we in ourselves can never become righteous because of our sin nature.
This is what is meant by the statement, “Christ in us the hope of glory”. I am so grateful for God’s plan of Salvation that makes us righteous in His eyes, Christ in us.
I guess the way I look at this is; I cannot make someone obey, or become a Christian in word or deed, for it ONLY comes by the drawing of The Holy Spirit and with that we make our choice.
So also the convictions of every individual; are subject to Christ and the drawing of the Holy Spirit and NOT according to my own convictions.
Yes, share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be an example of the Christ in you and allow the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to draw and convict the sinner or to make changes in the believers life and lifestyle.
Love will always win…”for love covers a multitude of sins.”
Allow the Holy Spirit to bring forth the convictions in both the sinner and new Christian. Again let me say, we as believers are not to be the judge. We are individually the Lord’s and are to individually live for the Lord.
“Everyone of us shall give a count of himself to God.”
…practices of our Christian (freedom). “bear the infirmities (weaknesses) of the weak. Be patient and consul one another.
Yes, we as believers in Christ Jesus have the responsibility to be full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to admonish (warn) one another but be gentle in our word and deed. AGAIN, LOVE PREVAILES.
As always, love in Christ Jesus,
