Teach me Your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name. (Psalm 86:11)
Are we welcoming dividing invaders into our hearts [minds]? I, too, have fallen prey to some of these invaders and repented. I strive to not follow the emotional masses in defying God’s laws in word, thought or deed. We are a disobedient world suffering consequences of sins like unbelieving hearts in the first world, but Noah and family found grace in God’s eyes.
God released, in my opinion, portions of His wrath for us to feel labor pains before His Son returns. Converted Christians must not be distracted by the world’s points of view when God gave no law authorizing our emotions to supersede His commandments.
WHAT DID GOD SAY?
“‘Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For the two, He says “Shall become one flesh.'”
‘But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.’
‘Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.'” (I Corinthians 6:15-20)
The words and actions of converted followers of Jesus must be seasoned with godly salt and show respect to those who think, act and believe differently than Jesus. We must remain steadfast in the faith and stand firmly on book, chapter and verse. Preach Jesus! Nothing Else! God will judge accordingly.
We obey laws of mankind for fear of going to jail. We disobey laws of God with no fear of going to Hell. Let us keep an undivided heart to spend eternity with God. ! — Tangie T. Woods
