MORNINGTIME 2631
                       
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW. 2 Corinthians 5:17. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, AND HIS WIFE HATH MADE HERSELF READY. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF SAINTS. Revelation 19:7-8. When a bride is getting ready to be married, she does numerous things to amplify her Beauty within and without. She has a Heart for her bridegroom and desires to do everything she possibly can to give to him her Best. She has around her people who will help her in this process, but ultimately it all rests on her desire to be as clean and white, without spot, blemish, or wrinkle as possible. For the Believer, the Christian, the Follower of Christ, (Christ is the Bridegroom), the Believer spends their whole life getting ready for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The Holy Spirit helps do the things she can't do for herself, but again, it's the desire of the Bride to be made ready for her Groom. She desires to give up all the rot and filth the world has to offer, to say "goodbye" to any and all old boyfriends, and to take on the attributes and lifestyle of her Bridegroom. She desires to put all her Heart, Soul, and Life into Him, the Love of her Life, that together they form A Perfect Bond and Unity for all their days. This describes a True Follower of Christ, one who is Totally Sold Out To Him. Her inclusion of CHRISTLIKENESS totally pushed out ALL old things as she is being made into A New Creature. This totally rules out the cheap "salvation" of, go up front, say the Prayer, sign the card, join the church, and that's all, YOU'RE IN. This ALONE is the false salvation Satan offers. True Salvation is a 100% Commitment to Christ with A Lifetime of changes to prepare yourself for A Life in Him. Day by day, one Obedience at a time, just to, Be Blessed.
