Paul could not more strongly call us, to a closer Walk with God. To begin at the end, we have all been given,’a measure of faith.’
Everyone, can see the Majesty of God, in the heavens and the earth. There is buried within all of us, the measure of Faith, to believe, to find Salvation.
Some find it, never hearing the Gospel, by seeing and knowing the Savior, within their hearts. Some have heard and rejected our Savior.
Then there are you and I, we heard the Word, and asked Jesus to be Lord and Savior. The problem is, we Trust Him as Savior, not necessarily as Lord.
We have not taken the time, put in the effort, ‘that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.‘
He tells we can and should know God’s good, acceptable and perfect will of god.
Knowing the Will of God, would change our lives. If we know and believe His Will, we would be Working and Walking in the Gifts of the Spirit.
The Gifts were given us to build His Kingdom. They are the straw that will make our bricks, (the people of God, that make up His Church).
With-out the Gifts, we spend time building our facilities, the structures where we meet. We have children’s church, divorce care, AA, NA, singles groups, all things we do, in our power, instead of learning to use God’s Power.
We can only work in God’s Power, by ‘renewing our minds.‘
How do we renew our minds? We need to fill our minds with God’s Word, and Promises. We must Submit ourselves to God and resist the lies of the devil, only believe, we can do all Jesus did and more if we only believe.
We also must, ‘present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.’
Our reasonable service, being living sacrifices, giving up our will, our desires, our wants, we must be holy, acceptable to God.
We must set ourselves apart, sanctified to His Service. If we learn to trust Him, we will find the Joy, Peace, Love, and Comfort of the Holy Spirit.
His love will flow through us, and people will meet Jesus, as they interact with us. We will not need special training, as we Walk in the Yoke with Jesus.
He will direct us in all we need to do and be. Only Believe…
Romans 12: 1-3
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
When we find that great pearl, (Jesus), we should give up all to serve Him. Amen
‘You can have the relationship you want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.’
