MORNINGTIME 3255 
 
Dearly Beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, WHEREAS THEY SPEAK AGAINST YOU AS EVILDOERS, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the Day of Visitation. 1 Peter 2:11-12. So why will a Christian, a Believer, a Follower of Christ be thought of as an evildoer? Because evil people are so used to "swimming" in sin, that sin to them is perfectly normal. When you spend your whole life "feeding" on and in sin, than life is normal when it is full of sin. A Christian comes along living a Life growing in Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity, suddenly that "normal" life of sin is turned upside-down, and the sinner is confronted with The Truth Of Sin and how wrong it really is. This "understanding" of sin can ONLY be done by the Holy Spirit. YOU CAN'T SAVE ANYONE. But when your Life in Christ is seen by a sinner, THEY must admit their "normal" life, IS ALL SIN, fully flying up in the Face of Christ Who can tolerate NO sin in His Presence. When the Holy Spirit shows a man what sin truly looks like through God's Eyes, that sinner then has to choose to accept sin as wrong, and come to Salvation, OR, fight tooth and nail to try to hang on to his frail hope that sin is still normal, and "right". For most, that's a losing battle AND THEY KNOW IT, but they fight on for sin anyway. That's why sinners hate Believers so much, the Lord uses Believers to stand IN THE FACE OF SIN just by living in Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity, WHICH THE BELIEVER DOESN'T SEE BECAUSE IT'S NORMAL IN HIS LIFE. All Believers used to be full time sinners "enjoying" their life of sin, UNTIL CHRIST SHOWED UP AND CHANGED EVERYTHING!!! So, Believers, live your GOoD Life as unto the Lord, and let the Lord work out The Details Of His Life in the life of sinners. Pray for them all and Trust the Lord to bring in ALL the lost sheep, as they too will, Be Blessed.
