I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"OUR HOLINESS IS IN JESUS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
OUR HOLINESS IS IN JESUS
DO YOU KNOW WHY WE SHOULD BE AS HOLY AS WE CAN? IT IS NOT TO TRY TO KEEP OUR SALVATION BUT TO STOP SATAN FROM STEALING OUR FAITH AND GIVING HIM AN OPEN INVITATION TO DO HIS EVIL IN OUR LIVES. HE WILL TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS. HE DOES IT BY SETTING THINGS IN FRONT OF US THAT WILL TEMPT US TO SIN. FOR INSTANCE, HE WILL HAVE SOMEONE MAKE YOU MAD SO YOU WILL EITHER DO OR SAY SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN'T. I AM SURE YOU CAN THINK OF MANY WAYS HE HAS DONE THIS TO YOU. WE MUST STAY STRONG. EPHESIANS 6:10 SAYS "be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might." WE NEED TO PUT ON THE FULL ARMOUR OF GOD TO KEEP US STRONG AND PROTECTED.
ALSO, OUR BEING AS HOLY AS WE CAN WILL NOT BRING US INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND THE LACK OF US BEING HOLY WILL NOT MAKE GOD TURN AWAY FROM US. HE DEALS WITH US ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH IN JESUS. GOD SEES US AS HE SEES JESUS. WE ARE NOT ONLY GOING TO BE LIKE JESUS WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN BUT WE ARE JUST LIKE HIM NOW IN OUR SPIRITS AND THAT IS WHAT GOD LOOKS AT. SEE WHAT 1ST JOHN 4:17 SAYS "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world."
ONE THING WE HAVE TO REMEMBER IS THAT ALTHOUGH ALL OF OUR SINS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN, PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE, WE STILL NEED TO ASK FORGIVENESS WHEN WE DO SIN. THIS LETS SATAN KNOW THAT WE ARE UNDER GOD'S PROTECTION AND HE HAS NO POWER OVER US. WE NEED TO KEEP STUDYING GOD'S WORD. THIS WILL KEEP US IN A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND OUR THOUGHTS UPON HIM. JESUS SAYS TO RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO RESIST THAN TO KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS ON JESUS.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
