The Called of God Are Special!

Everyone who is called by my name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him. This people I have formed for myself. Isa 43:7, 21.

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. I Pet 2:9. 

A. In every age of the past, and the more now in Christ; the Called of God are special. Heb 8:6-13.

B. They have a good moral and  spiritual self-image; because they know to whom they belong. Eph 1:7-12; Ac 17:26-29

C. The called of God are ready to give an answer to all for the reason of their hope in the Lord. I Pet 3:15.

D. The called of God, are a peace loving, and peace making people. Mat 5:9

E. There is room for you and the world to be added to the family of God... Jon 3:16-17; Mat 28:19-20; Mk 16:15-16; Ac 2:36-47; II Thes 2:14. Be encouraged to love and obey God!

Please keep Isa 43:7, 21 & I Pet 2:9, in mind; as we move ahead with the above topic, part II! Very important that we know the truth pertaining to all matters of faith and doctrine... only the truth will make us free. (Jon 8:32; 17:17)

Don't permit the devil, nor his angels, or anything else to cause us to live beneath our Royal Status in Jesus; due to his evil deception and sin. The truely called of God, never suffer with identity or culture crisis! We know who we are, and to whom we belong. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, neither male nor female: ye are all one in Christ Jesus... if ye be Christ's, ye are Abrham's seed and heirs according to the promise. (Gal 3:26-29) Again, The Called of God Are Special! Not because I said it; but because of God's Love, Mercy, and Grace.

  ...by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name...do not forget to do good and to share, with such sacrifices God is well pleased. (Heb 13:15,16)

Please keep Jon 8:32; 17:17; and Gal 3:26-29, in mind as part III of the above topic unfold. Continue to be blessed... whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (Rom 15:4) Again, the Truth set free all who know and obey (Jas 1:22)

But with many of them (under Moses) God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. (I Cor 10:5-7  Read verse 8-12, to know more how to please God in the Royal Priesthood family.

Conclusion:

A. Be Faithful unto death and be given the Crown of life  Rev 2:10.

 B. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord Rev 14:13.

The New Life In Christ

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the  right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things of the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory Col 3:1-4.

One who is born-again, is a new creation Spiritually Jon 3:3- 5; 2 Cor 5:17. The same project a new lifestyle in God's family; the Royal Priesthood 1Pet 2:9-10. The new nature, Divine nature by obedient faith takes over Hebrew 11:6; Rm 10: 17; Ac 2:41-47.

Be encouraged to look new and act new, with the Divine glow at all times as Saints of God and help make a difference in Jesus Mat 5: 16.

Be encouraged to press forward in the Newness of Christian living. The Lord adds to the church daily Acts 2:41-47! Lest we forget, Satan takes weak souls out of the body, the church daily via evil deception. Not a new discovery; it's old news from the beginning Gen 3.

The Saints (Philippians 4:8), were encouraged in Christian living to keep Divine focus on: 

1. Things that are true...

2. Things that are honest...

3. Things that are just...

4. Things that are pure...

5. Things that are lovely...

6. Things that are of good report...

7. If any virtue, if any praise, meditate on these things. 

America and the world need you and me to show them the way in Jesus, just like that; that can and will make a difference. 

Is a life-time, growth process on demand; from the time of the new birth, to spiritually maturity in the Lord... many ups and downs, ins and outs, troubles and feeling like giving up (many do); before they get to maturity.  But don't quit, the reaping time is near Gal 6:9-10. 

The old man and his deeds must be left behind, and the new man will evolve in a Divine glow in this evil and sinful world of darkness. A new attitude: tender mercies of kindness, humility, meekness, bearing with and forgiving one another... putting on love, the bond of perfection Col 3:12-14. ... let the  peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body vs.15. Humanity is called to the Lord by the gospel, the Word. II Thes 2:14; Rm 1:16; 10;17. Just being a member of the Lord's Church is not enough; faithful commitment to the Lord for life is on demand Rev 2:10. 

Sin is ever knocking at the door of all...the newly born again Saints, even the more! No immunity no matter who! The Lord God adds to the Family, but the Devil takes away by sin! Paul suffered with it like all others Rm 7:14-25. All have sinned and come short of God's glory Rm 3:23;5:12. Thank God all Saints who walk in the Light, as He is in the Light, have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus cleanses all of sins I Jon 1:6-7. If we confess our sins of commission; God is willing and ready to forgive accordingly Vs. 8-10. God is longsuffering, not willing that any should perish, but that all come to repentance II Pet 3:9.

Add the seven (7) levels of Grace to your Christian discipline in the Lord and be safe! Add to your Faith: virtue,  temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, charity. If these virtues be in you; you will be complete II Pet 1:5-9; Rev 2:10. "Let's Do It!" Djet

Keep The Spirit Alive Today!

Just one day at a time consistently, that will be enough to please God...not a big thing to do for most saints... but the right thing for all saints to do...even more so... in this troublesome and sinful time period we are in 1 Tim 4:1-5; 2 Tim 3:1-8. The Spirit of Christ moving and working in us, project who we are and where we are going in Jesus Jon 14:1 -6. Don't Forget: if we don't have the Spirit of Christ, we don't belong Rm 8:9! Being Spirit-filled is not just a Sunday worship thing, two ( 2 ) hours or more! Rather a Sun, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs., Fri, and Sat thing, 24/7! Such commitment is never meant to harass or turn off the unsaved… it's about our self-keeping, reaching, teaching and leading the unsaved to Jesus. No more! No less! Keep The Spirit Alive Today! "But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed by one another...Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another" Gal 5:15-16,25-26. "Let's Do It" for self-keeping, reaching, teaching and leading the lost to Jesus!

Keep The Spirit Alive Today #2! Again, just one day at a time... don't worry about tomorrow. .not promised... Mat 6:34. Keep The Spirit Alive for the betterment of ourselves and others to God's honor and glory! Such behavior is meant to draw souls to Christ… not to drive weak/lost ones away! It's about an inner joy, love and peace that is contagious! Peter warned: ..."be ready to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason for the hope that is in you with meekness and fear". .. 1 Pet 3:15-16. Somebody will ask how we live rejoicing always Phil 4:4-7. The Spirit provides needed comfort to the inner man Jon 6:63..."I will pray with the Spirit... pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the Spirit...will sing with the understanding also"1 Cor14:15. So sing our songs, pray our prayers, do our good deeds in all matters of faith and doctrine… as downloaded by the "Spirit-Alive" and the Word! "Quench not the Spirit"1 Thes 5:19. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God... are the sons of God...ye have not received the spirit of fear; but the Spirit of adoption... Whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit bear witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God" Rom 8:14- 16. Thanks to God for today... step on to the stage of life's arena spiritually and emotionally Alive and be a champion for the Master.

The Spirit of Christ living, moving, and working in us...distinguish our behavior from the behavior of the unsaved. Man by nature is sinful, uncertain, evil, and dangerous. Be ever thankful.. God saved us and delivered us from the power sin Jon 3:16-17; Mat 28:19-20; Ac 2: 36-47. He adopted us... gave us a new nature with Royalty status in Jesus...Holy Spirit- driven Rom 8:14- 16. "And because ye (we) are sons, God has set forth the Spirit of His Son in your hearts crying, Abba Father" Gal 4:6. Keep The Spirit Alive Today as we move along the way... never easy for one reason or another... first told by my father and mother. As life developed over the years; l have learned like you my sister and brother; in suffering, love, joy, peace and immeasurable tears! So, Let's Keep The Spirit Alive in Jesus Today... our hope of Glory, one day at a time in your heart and mine!

THE LOVE OF GOD!

 It's like all other attributes of God: It's matchless and beyond human ability to phantom. It's out-reach is global...every nation and every creature in the world is invited to reap the benefits… Jon 3:16-17; Mat 28: 19-20; Mk16:15-16. Appealing to the rich and poor alike...the upper class, the middle class and no class, that's right! There is no class or ethnic distinction, in Christ Jesus Gal 3:26-29; 2 Cor5:17. As a matter of fact, He blesses the good and the bad Mat 5:45. Oh, God is so good! GOD DEMANDS LOVE ON OUR PART: "As the Father loved me, I also have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in His love" Jon 15:9-10. Do we really love the Lord? "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is Love" 1Jon 4:7-8. Do we really love the Lord God? "He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is he loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him" Jon 14:21. Do we really love the Lord God? Religious rhetoric will not suffice with the Lord... "Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in Heaven" Mat7:21. Love toward God compels us to obey Him!

A Good Attitude Is Priceless!

Can help one to survive while lacking certain skills, knowledge, experience, etc. A good attitude saved me when I didn't know; but thought I did! Permitted me to reach goals otherwise, could not have happened. I am not an exception! Somebody said: "attitude determines altitude in life". This saying has merit no doubt. "He (God) hath shrewd thee, O man, what is good, and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy and walk humbly with God" Micah 6:8.  Ain't no way for us to walk with God; while flirting an evil, nasty - nice, ego-driven, sinful spirit at the same time? God doesn't play like that! "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law" Gal 5:22-23. This is about "attitude" Christian style, no doubt! No better kind for man on this side of eternity! The kind that makes enemies to become our friends Pro 16:7. When walking, talking, driving, working, worshipping or whatever; keep "A Good Attitude!" Live godly and righteously, it will make a difference!

I have met and shared with some very bright people over the years, especially, men and women of science/medicine with astounding abilities... though some turn many people off by their ego-driven and unfriendly attitudes, causing adverse effects in spite of their learning and professional expertise. I've met some, who just didn't have it, regarding knowledge, skills/experience. But, they had pleasant attitudes ...willing and ready to learn, grow, and glow...who had potentials like diamonds in the rough. After washing, cutting and polishing properly, were successful in deed. After the called of God are washed, cut, polished and empowered...they must bear fruit like Jesus, like us, in Him Jon 15:1-8. "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice; and be kind to one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you" Eph4:31,32. Again, this is about "Attitude," Christian-style! The Word of the Lord says: "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life"Pro4:23. Attitudes are "live scenes" about us..."A Good Attitude Is Priceless!"
