MORNINGTIME 2811
 
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, (This is the life of sin). and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (this is the Life in Christ). 2 Corinthians 10:5. This is talking about two totally separated life styles with the Gift of Salvation separating the two. Everyone on the planet starts off as a sinner of the most vile kind. They know nothing of God and have no interest in anything or anyone, but themselves. Most will try to "find their own way" into something they hope to be a better "way" to something better than what they now have. Yes, they do have to deal with that nagging thought (from the Holy Spirit) that there is something better, but that is usually crushed by a very cold heart. In The End, they will have to admit that the Lord was wanting their attention, and they continually worked on shutting Him out. On the other hand, this Life In Christ is only attained by going to and through Salvation. That's when a "Lost" man actually decides to Listen to that Still Small Voice calling out to his heart, he meets Christ, is changed, and now lives a Life of Obedience and growing in CHRISTLIKENESS.  In this New Life, there are even more Trials, Troubles, Testings, and Tribulations than EVER before, but with the Knowledge and Understanding that the Spirit of Christ, His Holy Spirit, will help him through it all EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. This New Life is sealed with Joy Unspeakable, and The Peace That Passes Understanding. Now, with A New Heart and A Mind Stayed On Christ, he KNOWS he can handle any and all situations that come his way, in and through Christ. The Joy in the other side makes the trouble on this side, all worth it. Flesh, self, and the old man nature of the old life, are going out the window as Christ, and Christ Alone, fills This Life, preparing for the Next Life. It's the best "Win, Win" situation ever offered to man, and the Only Way to, Be Blessed.
