God Thinking LX - As You Get Closer 4

"The Holy Spirit convicts of us sin and reveals what should be put “on top” in the mind and convicts us of what needs to be pushed down and out.

The Holy Spirit steers us to conform to the image of God and to put off the old ways.

The Holy Spirit leads every child of God to take responsibility as a creation of God for His or her own actions. 

There are many counterfeit Christians and they are not interested in what God says.

God declares He will have:

God is calling us out to be a peculiar people.
A people in love with His Son.
A people devoted to the things of God.
A people informed in the truths of Scripture.
A people who look for ways to build His Church.
A people who desire holiness.
A people hungry for the things of God.
A people who adore the Lord.
A people who seek the narrow path.
A people who choose to be like Christ.
A people who trust God.
A people who love one another.
A people tempered in righteousness.
A people of faithfulness.
A people who follow Christ.
A people that desire to be with His people.
A people who enjoy worship and praise.
A people that give to the poor.
A people that answer the call.

Why would anyone want to go to heaven that doesn’t enjoy the things of God on this side?

If you don’t like the things of God on this side, what makes you think you are going to like the things of God on the other side."
