Relationships – Wisdom (3 of 3 series)
Being kind is not always the work of righteous people but also lawlessness. They clothe themselves with kindness, but deep inside, they are the destructors of our minds, which are set to win the crown of victory, glorifying The Almighty God, and placing us in a mindset of evilness is not going to work heavily. We have fewer challenges today than the people before the cross do. Being under the grace of God, we no longer have the burden of fear in going to the lake of fire; we are justified and sanctified through the blood poured on the cross. We are sealed with the assurance of eternal life. What more can the adversary do but try a losing war?
We have the most extraordinary things that they do not have. Relationship with the Family of God: When you believe you are part of the Trinity or want to be part of it, you will be. Christianity is a relationship, and as Christians, we are responsible for obeying the instructions of the word of God. Christians are ministers of the Gospel or the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ, but not all are true Christians. Professing and Confessing Christians are two different types of Christians. Confessing is the acknowledgment of sins in public to obtain necessary forgiveness. While Professing Christians are those who declare their faith without reservation and shame openly.
A genuine Christian does not love the world or the things the world loves to offer. When we love the world, we do not have the love of the Father. In addition, a True Christian was a follower of an unblemished doctrine, rightly dividing the word of truth; we cannot love them both. As it is written, you cannot serve two Lords (Master). You love one, and you hate the other one. (Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you.). The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever (1 John 2:17)). Pride, self-righteousness, and self-justifications are the epitome of what the world will turn you to. A promised luxury lifestyle could be a reward for submitting to their cause. When you follow the desires or thoughts of the world, you are an enemy of God (James 4:4).
Our relations with the world must not result in disconnection with our relationship with God. The prince of the Air has the authority to rule the earth but has no authority to rule over us due to the gift of Free Will. The only way we can be under his command is when we walk away from the grace of God. When we mock the Holy Spirit, which is an unpardonable sin, and when we totally disown God as our Father and continually do the things that will grieve His heart. A relationship is significant in our lives, whether with earthly family, neighbors (believers and unbelievers), friends of friends, and relatives; remember that God created us because of love, will, and purpose.
Disobedience has been a mistake since the beginning of humanity, and we are here today to fight a good fight of faith, to regain the lost perfection that is supposed to be ours; we are rebels in the eyes of the people in darkness and they enjoy seeing us in hardship because most if not all people are vulnerable when it comes to pain and sufferings and give up their faith so easily. We cannot win these battles, but we can win the war.
If we trust and submit entirely to our Father in heaven, as He said from His written word, whoever acknowledges His existence in their (our) lives will have a reward. This is not a bribe. This is a guidance and not a command. We have Free Will, and God will not interfere with every decision. It is our call, and we should do it right. Whatever we do—whether we eat or drink or not—do it all to the glory of God!
Let us communicate with the Father that is in heaven above.
Our Father, our LORD, bless and keep us together under Your wings’ of protection and guidance. May Your face shine upon us and give us the quality of life that You alone can provide. May Your grace pour the peace and joy that our hearts desire. Forgive us for our disobedience and strengthen us to fight the challenges that come our way. Without You, LORD, winning the battle of the mind is impossible. We submit to You, Father our LORD, our struggle in life that includes all kinds of fears that the adversary induces in our mind to bring us down. Father, we humbly submit to You our wishes.
May we thank Your mighty Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that connects us to Your Spirit. Thank You, Father, we submit and agree.
From us all, Your Loving children.
God bless to all.
