Good Morning all. I am back in the saddle again. I have been looking around and God has shown me some things that I have to work on and I pray that he is showing you also where your work is. How do you be good in a world that is so corrupt? I found part of the my answer in Galatians 6:6-10- "Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith." If we satisfy our human nature, then we will receive what human nature gives but if we satisfy the Spirit then we will receive what the Spirit gives. I don't know about you but I want what the Spirit gives. What are the works of the flesh? Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, HATRED, contentions, jealousies, OUTBURSTS OF WRATH, SELFISH AMBITIONS, dissensions, heresies, envy, murder, drunkenness, revelries and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will NOT inherit the kingdom of God." What are the works of the Spirit? Galatians 5:22-23. "BUT the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, LONGSUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS,FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, SELF-CONTROL. Against such there is no law." One set is the way of the world and the other is way of Christ, which one do you belong to? I don't about you but I am striving for the second list. And if we all strive for the second list then what a world we could live in. Guys, when are Christians going to wake up and RISE UP? Jesus is calling, are we answering? Have a blessed day!
