I’ve heard it before and from ‘Christians’ that ‘there are different kinds of Christians’ to be put more directly. It’s a real big issue not to be able to separate the sheep from the goat but that’s for us cause do not be deceived God knows those who are His. Being human we usually judge by what we see.
I had a lot of personal thoughts about this when I was writing but my thoughts matter little to what Gods word has said.
So I ask you- what’s the difference?
There are things I’ve done, not because I didn’t know they were wrong in fact I had scriptures playing in my mind but I just wanted to do it. There are sinners who give to the poor, make sure they don’t miss church service, are prayerful, they are friendly. They don’t drink or do anything harmful they just love to party so…. What’s the difference?
The answer that came to me was ‘Let you light so shine’ – Matt 5:16
How do I let my light shine? Am I not doing that already?
There is a transformation that comes with the Holy Spirit abiding in you that cannot be mistaken once someone comes in contact with you.He’s fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control should be recognized (Galatians 5:22). In fact in the compact category it is righteousness peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17)
Fact: no unclean thing can enter the Kingdom of God. Although we often have this ‘we are human’ excuse we know that we need the Holy Spirit to sanctify us.
Yes! We aren’t with our personal flaws and that was why God gave us His son; so that we have access to the Blood of Christ. He also gave us His Perfect Purifying Spirit.
It’s like a complete facial mask package with the face cleanser and exfoliating cream. How refreshing!!!!
Pray: Holy Spirit Sanctify me. Let my light shine and let it be to the glory of the Father.
