MORNINGTIME 2742
 
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, LET US CLEANSE OURSELVES from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1. And that ye PUT ON THE NEW MAN, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore PUTTING AWAY LYING, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.  Be ye angry, AND SIN NOT: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: NEITHER GIVE PLACE TO THE DEVIL. Ephesians 4:24-27. And the Lord make you to INCREASE AND ABOUND IN LOVE one toward another, and TOWARD ALL MEN, even as we do toward you:  To the end he may STABLISH YOUR HEARTS UNBLAMEABLE IN HOLINESS before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints. 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13. What all this means is, the Lord is more than willing to change a man from filthy rags to a man of Holiness, but only on the condition that the man has a Heart's Desire for the Lord to do  this. Salvation is the first step and that gets you from the bottom of the septic tank, into the Throne Room of God Almighty. Now that you have the full and undivided attention OF THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING, what are you going to ask for? A few simple trinkets, or are you going to "go for the Gold" and ask for His Very Best, and that being, CHRISTLIKENESS? And the only Way to get There is to go through, Trials, Troubles, Testings, and Tribulations, WITH Chastening’s, Chastisements, and Corrections. That's Christ, and there is no other Way. You won't know there's something wrong until it's brought to your attention. And the Holy Spirit is the Master at bringing things to your attention. He's so good at it, He'll even have YOU understand you have a problem. And as a Christian, you'll quickly say, "Please, take this filthiness out of me, it offends my Lord". And He will. Some things are simple and surface. Some are deep rooted and harder to get out. Either way, get'em gone, and, Be Blessed.
