MORNINGTIME 2117
 
STUDY TO SHEW THYSELF APPROVED unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15. Here is an illustration to ONLY try to make a point, so please read carefully and go with the flow. Let's say for the moment that everything in this world IS SIN. And the only thing that is not sin is when the Lord, (by the Holy Spirit), tells you to do something and in obedience, you do it. Good for you, you were Obedient and got Blessed for it. But everything else you do is sin. As you Grow in Christ and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit more often and in Obedience, you'll see that you are SINNING less and growing in CHRISTLIKENESS. This is Good. Your Prayer time and Fellowship with the Lord is increasing as your worldliness is decreasing. Now to explain a little. To drive in your car is not necessarily a sin, but to drive somewhere when the Lord told you to stay at home, that disobedience IS a sin. To want to do something, and the Lord says "No", AND YOU DO IT ANYWAY, that's sin. To not do it, and the Lord says "Do", and you don't do it, that's sin. So how many times a day does this sin, don't sin, happen to you, either way? Are you growing in Obedience? Do you include the Lord in EVERYTHING? Since He made it all, why NOT include Him? If you continually examine yourself all day long, how would the "Obedience" "disobedience" chart look? Is there really a place to take EVERYTHING to the Lord, or am I just making up some elaborate silly example? That's actually something you'll have to decide, because, it's your Life and your Walk with the Lord. So apply this illustration as you see fit, work out your own Salvation with the Lord, and I hope that with the results you get, you will, Be Blessed.
