The 23rd Day Of Studying The Gospel Of John
(Bethany S. Heard)
We should pray for the misled, the weak-minded, the lost, the hurt and the hurtful. Even those whom are not with God, are of Him? He gave them to the world, even if they have not followed Him since. We should pray, and help them (for and to) gain access to God. We should show them His grace, as (active and grateful) channels of it ourselves, even if they do not recognise it as His? Remember, God is not an idol, nor a faraway ideal? He is a living, breathing, reaching, and reachable, Man? He is Christ Jesus, and we are Him, when we turn to Him? We then become His, and extensions of His will, compassion, and grace - Sometimes, even, when we are particularly receptive, we are extensions of His wisdom. We serve as the arms and legs of Jesus now, (He and we?) then, and always,- on this Earth, and, when we allow Him, (through remembering the above) He also serves us, as He did when dying and rising for us. It was all so we would know what?s possible, and how to reach it (Salvation and peace)/Him, our Father? It is our duty to perform the same ministry as Our Saviour! However, we shouldn?t become bewildered; drawn in, ourselves, through our steps to be compassionate ? We must listen for the Lord?s Word! John tells us that we all sin against the Lord?s recommendations, even Christians, from time to more-often-than-we?d-like-to-admit time? But Sin is to sin against the Lord Himself, and, by extension, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, whom have been kind enough to reach out to us, if they can. To bring about the Birth, Death, and Resurrection of the Son of God, all for us, and through OBEDIENCE to The Heavenly Father? Those whom are truly right there, with Jesus Christ, in the moment, every minute of every day, they do not sin? Sin is brought about, even by and to a Christian, when we allow ourselves to be ?only human?, instead of homes for the Holy Spirit, lit up by having our Lord, Jesus Christ, as the candle at our centre? We are windows, we reflect what?s outside and in, we show Light and Darkness ? We must stay open for and to Jesus! From Him, all GOOD, and all (of) God, come? We are the Lord?s children, and we are on His earth, caught between a fierce battle, the battle to win our hearts and minds, the battle to will them, and control our bodies and actions through them, because our bodies? carry us on this Earth, and are vessels that can do a lot of harm in the wrong hands? But our minds, controlled by God, through Jesus, invested in the Holy Spirit, can perfectly control our bodies and hearts, which then leave behind, (and carry with us) the most treasured marks we make on this, our Lord?s, earth, and on His people? Jesus ministered to win our Salvation and gain our hearts?? He ministered to save us from our minds?, and take control of our bodies? He died, and was born again, to show us it can be done! He lived to serve us, and died in the ultimate example of serving (both us and) His Father, whom will(s) us Saved ? Jesus saw that it was done. It was done! - A long while ago? Are you going to LIVE because of it, or die, in-spite of it..?? We can choose to be Saved because we have a big brother whom cleaned (us) up and cleared all threat from our path? Do we go down our path, (and follow Him, as He beckons) as He prepared, (and cared) for us, OR do we go down the Anti-Christ?s path, the bully?s way..??? Don?t walk off the beaten track, walk on to it!!! This way,
(-His!) you will not be beaten into submission, left as dead..!!! This passage teaches us that sin is something we are all guilty of, but Sin is something
whom (..!) we can employ our Champion to beat (for us!!)? Then, of course, we must always fight in His corner!!! (This means not judging/condemning others? on being a sinner, but not condoning their sin for ourselves!)? Sinners are of God, but Sin is NOT!!! That is why we do not sin when we, consciously, actively, currently remain with Him? This shows us that the only Man whom can defeat Satan isJesus, He of the Father and Holy Spirit. We must come to (and, then, KNOW) Jesus, before we can say goodbye to Satan. Satan may not forever say goodbye to us - he will carry on, trying to snare us back! ? That?s why we must remain conscious in THE, OUR (HEAVENLY) Spirit, as did Jesus, whom leads us to Salvation. He was, after all, the first invited to truly travel there? Our position is one of a customer. Do we want to buy from, to deal with, to haggle for the Devil, or do we want our custom with the Lord, and for Jesus to have already done all of the bartering..??? Choose the aisle, before you get dragged down it by the wrong soul? The Lord?s soul is pure. He died for us!!
