MORNINGTIME 2504
 
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; FOR THE PERFECTING OF THE SAINTS, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; TILL WE ALL COME IN THE UNITY OF the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto A PERFECT MAN, UNTO the measure of the stature of THE FULNESS OF CHRIST: THAT WE henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  But speaking the truth in love, MAY GROW UP INTO HIM IN ALL THINGS, which is the head, even Christ: Ephesians 4:11-15. In one sense, we may be as dust in the eyes of the Lord, but then it takes the combined efforts of God Himself, Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit to work on us people to get us from being wretched vile sinners, to being made Perfect in Christ. I don't  know what the end product of this  "perfection" will look like, but it's bound to be GOoD. And the good news is, nobody HAS to allow the Lord to make any changes to them at all. In this scenario, the Lord gets to work on and with only Willing Sinners who Desire to be changed from the stuff at the bottom of the septic tank, to a Godly CHRISTLIKENESS never before seen on this world. The Creator of EVERYTHING, has the time and ability to touch, change, and Purify EVERYTHING about you. And EVERYTHING about this process has been Paid In Full, so all you need to do is say, "Yes Lord, Your Will Be Done". Then the Lord will do all He needs to in our short life here, to prepare us for Eternity there. What a life to lead to, WHAT A Life. The sad news is, most people will blatantly turn down this most Gracious offer of Eternity with Christ, for a few fleeting trinkets this world can't offer. "Few there be who find it". Be one that says "Yes Lord", willing to be led by the Holy Spirit, and willing to be "lost" in Christ. What A Way to, Be Blessed.
