Good morning, afternoon and evening to you all!
I do pray that you all will have a blessed day and that our GOD will be with you and give you all of the comfort that you will need! And I do pray for all of those who do not seek after GOD and HIS son JESUS right now that will from here on. For if you are lead here today, I pray that GOD will give you the answers that you need to give you insight and faith in HIM to be a member of the body of Christ. Amen!!
We who are followers of JESUS are in the body, making us one family of GOD. There are no man made barriers that divide us from one group of people to another. We are one unit. Forget about the skin color, where a person came from, how little a person has, what clothes they have on, their height or weight, what language they speak. How much education they have or how little they have. Or anything else that man has thought of to divide people from being united in Christ!
I thank GOD for JESUS!!!! JESUS is the savior for all mankind!!!
Getting past the stereotypes we judge people by, I feel that once we do that and redo our thinking to think Christ like we wont care about the ways of the world. For how they judge us with their own ways. We will see a person, a soul with flesh, and to focus on the soul getting past the outside appearance to their heart. Doing so with GODLY discernment.
1 Corinthians 12:27
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
Being in the body of Christ we are compassionate towards one another at all times, knowing that the person in front of you has Christ in them. We can not divide our selves and destroy each other and assume GOD will not see what is in our hearts. Or to do evil in the dark and closed places assuming GOD does not have the power to know all. GOD does know all.
The sermon that my husbands friend, Pastor Helton is teaching here in the 8/11/19 message is about just that. Any hurtful words, actions or thoughts GOD know all about it. Pastor Helton speaks of Galatians chapter 5:22-23.
22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
KJV: King James Version
Let us get more into the practice of doing what this verse mentions about the 9 fruits of the spirit. We will then have more inner peace with in us. Knowing that we are doing GODS will and are spreading the peace that is in us to others.
May you all receive a blessing fro reading GOD’s word in this post. Please do share this message to others so they can read it and be blessed to from GOD and to know our beloved savior Christ Jesus! Pass it forward!
