MORNINGTIME 2334
 
For they, (our earthly fathers), verily for a few days, (of our short lives here on this earth), chastened us after their own pleasure, (that we would grow up in the image of our earthly fathers); but he, (Christ), for our profit, (chastened us that we would grow up in the image of our Heavenly father), THAT WE MIGHT BE PARTAKERS OF HIS HOLINESS. Hebrews 12:10. OK, so you think you've met Christ and you call yourself a "Christian" because you went up front, said the prayer, and the preacher said you were now a member of the family of God, BUT YOU'RE NOT QUITE SURE, what do you do??? Examine yourself, and ask yourself this question, DO YOU DESIRE TO BE LIKE CHRIST, AND DO YOU DESIRE TO WALK WITH HIM IN HIS HOLINESS? Hebrews 12:10 says you will, seek His Holiness. Be very careful here, a false "salvation" experience, straight from the mouth of Satan himself, will tell you to "walk the isle",  say "the prayer", AND NOTHING EVER NEEDS TO CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE, YOU'RE IN, AND THAT'S ALL IT TAKES. If this is where you're at with no changes in your life, no Heart's Cry for Holiness, and no interest in even trying to live your life in Christ, THAN YOU MAY STILL BE LOST IN YOUR SINS. Again, examine yourself, talk to the Lord, and read the whole Book of 2 Peter. Your very Eternity  may, or may not, be on the line. If you're SURE of your walk with Christ, GOoD for you, keep going. But if you have doubts or reservations about Salvation, go straight to Christ and work out the details that you may KNOW, you're Saved. A Desire to share in Christ and in His Holiness, is a Desire to leave behind the Things of the world, to be separated from worldliness and walking towards CHRISTLIKENESS. Yes, there is a "learning curve", BUT THE DESIRE TO GROW IN HOLINESS IS UNQUESTIONABLE, in your Heart's Desire. No guilt or pressure here, just an encouragement to be sure you're Walking with Christ the way the Bible directs you to. So, Walk with Christ, and, Be Blessed.
