HOW SHOULD YOU WALK ,AND CONDUCT YOURSELF AS A CHILD OF GOD.
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another”. (Galatians 5:16-26 NKJV).
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is”. (Ephesians 5:15-17 NKJV).
“Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one”. (Colossians 4:5-6 NKJV).
My beloved Brother Ricky Lee,puts it this way:
“Time is the most valuable commodity that we have in life. It’s more valuable than money. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you woke up this morning, God gave you a present called “today.” And with that gift comes a responsibility. The scripture tells us to redeem the time, to make the most of every opportunity. That simply means don’t let it go to waste. Don’t live this day unfocused, unhappy, negative or defeated. Make the most of every day. God has entrusted you with His life. He has breathed His very breath into you. He has put gifts and talents on the inside of you. You have seeds of greatness deposited in you. You’re a person of destiny, and you have an assignment and a purpose to fulfill!
I encourage you today to evaluate how you Walk,and are spend your time. Refocus your life. Let go of any,and every distractions. Shake off any self-pity, any discouragement, any disappointments of the past and run your race with purpose. Be careful how you live and redeem the time so that you can fulfill the destiny He has prepared for you.”
Brother Anthony Rose says this:
Understand What it Means to be GOOD,and to do GOOD
+Understanding GOOD from God’s point of view.
+God is Good, Psalm 100:5, and in the Goodness of God is Love, Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith.
God is Love, 1 John 4:8.
God is Truth, John 14:6.
God is Holy, Psalm 22:3
God is Righteous, Psalms 116:5
God is Faith, Galatians 2:20
+As Children of God our goodness must be the same as God’s Goodness.
+Remember nothing is GOOD unless it has Love, Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith in it.
+For example if we do something in Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith and without Love it is not Good.
+The same principle applies if we do any of the four words and leave one out.
+Again nothing is Good by God’s standards unless it is done in Love, Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
