MORNINGTIME 2627
 
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7. For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. Leviticus 11:44-45. It looks like the Little Baby Jesus is all grown up and has something to say! Since He made this world and everything in it, He gets to make the rules AND expect ALL His Followers to Follow His Rules. Sorry, but there will be no "pick and choose" what we will and won't follow if we claim to be Followers of Christ. Let's face the facts, if you are a Follower of Christ, you WILL Live by His Rules. And His Rules are not grievous to Live by. Actually, they are a Joy to follow because the Love Of, For, and In Christ makes the burden of Obedience a Joy to do. We're all learning to Follow, yes, BUT WE ARE FOLLOWING. No one HAS to follow Christ, just don't defame His Name by calling yourself a "Christian" and then follow some other way or path. Only Christ leads down the narrow path that is so narrow, He has to help us stay ON that path. And stay on it we shall, all the way to the End. Many claim to know Christ, and many of them Christ will say He doesn't know. Test yourself, examine yourself, ask your Brothers and Sisters to give you the once over, there is no pride involved in making sure that you're one of His, so that you may Forever, Be Blessed.
