There are 4 types of believers in the body of Christ :

The Church attenders
The Levites
The Priest’s
Those who walk with God :

☆ The Church attenders:

These are the people who desperately want a Savior, some attend church Christmas and Easter, most every Sunday, a chosen few two or more times a week. They may be involved with Sunday school, choir, Bible study.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

They have allowed Jesus to be Savior; As Lord, not so much.

They love the idea of being saved as long as it doesn’t interrupt or change their lives too much.

Like the Hebrews in the desert, they will gladly partake of the Lords provisions while complaining about the same.

Man: “I haven’t had a new pair of shoes in years.”
Other man: “Well, they still look brand new.”
Man: “Yeah, I want different ones.”

Dismissing the miracles the Lord is doing, daily.

☆ The Levites:

The Levites are the backbone of the Churches; they are the organizers, the workers, builders, movers and shakers.

In the desert they assembled and disassembled, carried and cared for the Lords house.

Protected it from stangers (those who knew not the Lord). They stood with the Priest’s when the Church attenders sinned.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

They have allowed Jesus to be Savior; and Lord in many areas of their lives.

Some things are just to dear to give up.

☆ The Priest’s :

These are the doers of the Word: They study to show themselves approved, workmen rightly dividing the Word of truth. They teach, preach, exhort, comfort, guide and direct. Wherever they go.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Jesus is their Lord and Savior :

They live a life of holiness, sanctification and consecration.

They deny themselves and take up their cross daily.

They work out their Salvation with fear and trembling.

They have set their face like flint towards the Lord.

They may have many followers or none. They are concerned with being obedient to God. They will be misunderstood, maligned, persecuted and highly favored by God.

☆ Those who walk with God :

Psalm 65:4
King James Version (KJV)
“Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.”

This is who we all should aspire to be. The Lord has stood at the door of our hearts, we have accepted Him in. Now we need to let Him Cause us to approach, learn to enter into the Holy of Holies, to find the mercy and grace He so wants to share.

Psalm 22 tells us He inhabits the Praise of His people. If we desire to walk with Jesus, we must learn to praise and worship. Learn to live the Lords prayer, not just recite it.

If we want to experience joy unspeakable, the peace that passes understanding, the comforter, teacher, lover of our souls, we must Worship and adore Him. Believe Him…Take His Yoke… is the only way to Walk with Him.

If you just attend Church, and don’t allow Jesus to be Lord, when its time to enter the promise, you may find you have an evil heart of unbelief. Like the Hebrews you may just wonder and die in the desert.

Please Lord, create in us clean hearts and renew our Spirits, that we might Walk with You.
