God Thinking LXXXVII - Face To Face 4

"In a world, so full of compromise - indecision - concession -
vacillation - inconsistency - indifference - ingratitude - apathy - disregard for the holy - disinterest in the things of God - a world full of vanity - There is still a call from God, “John 15:19
9.  “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

 2 Corinthians 6:17
 17.  “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”

The enemy has spun a web of illusions to catch your attention and to keep you from the right way. 

When God saves a man and converts his soul and indwells his heart and apprehends his mind - It is to transform him:
from lost to found
From dead to alive
From a natural creature to a supernatural creature

The truly born again have a zeal for God that can only be measured by their love for the things of God.

You need to quit making excuses for people that call themselves Christians, but their love for the world is greater than their love for the things of God.

You need to quit enabling those who take lightly the grace of God and lead them in the sinners prayer.

When you speak of God - of Jesus - of the Holy Spirit you should speak upward and richly.

Ephesians 4:11-32
11.  And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
 12.  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

 14.  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, (spiritually) and arise from the dead, (spiritually) and Christ shall give thee light.
 15.  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
 16.  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
 17.  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is."
