MORNINGTIME 2868
 
To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: GRACE, MERCY, and PEACE, FROM GOD the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I thank God, whom I SERVE from my forefathers with PURE CONSCIENCE, that WITHOUT CEASING I have REMEMBRANCE of thee in my PRAYERS night and day; For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of POWER, and of LOVE, AND  a SOUND MIND. 2 Timothy 1:2-3,7. This is a List of some of the Attributes of Christ that He brings with Him when He is invited to come Live in a person. (Salvation). NONE of these attributes come to man naturally because all of them are about extending yourself towards others first, and yourself, nil. The old life and lifestyle of Flesh, Self, and the old man Adamic Nature have no room for others. So when Christ moves in, the old things have to move out. Yes, there is a "learning curve" here, but that curve only comes into play when you have a Heart for Christ. As you learn of Christ's Way, He will help you unlearn your old ways. It's always A Work of Christ to change you from Sinner, to Saved. Because of this Transformation, your Love for anything GOoD will Grow in you, and will keep Growing ALL THE WAY TO CHRISTLIKENESS. The flesh won't give up easily, and it will try to put up a fight, but as you Love Christ, and those who are His, flesh will give way to even more Love for others. Loving others, ALL others, even the unlovely others, EVEN THE OTHERS WHO HURT AND KILL THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST, will your Love, Care and  Prayers go for. This is how Christ extends Himself to a Lost and Dying World, THROUGH YOU, with His Attributes!!! This is how "the world" sees that Christ really cares for them, THROUGH YOU! If you can't Show Them Christ, do you even have Christ in you? Are you "Looking Like" Christ a little more each day? Are others seeing a little more of Christ in you, every day? Live, Love, and Be In Christ, and He'll take care of the world around you. It won't be easy, but you and they, WILL, Be Blessed.
