STUDY TO SHEW THYSELF APPROVED UNTO GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH. Nevertheless the Foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that Nameth the Name of Christ DEPART FROM INIQUITY. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore PURGE HIMSELF from these, he shall BE A VESSEL UNTO HONOUR, SANCTIFIED, and meet FOR THE MASTER'S USE, and PREPARED UNTO EVERY GOOD WORK. Flee also youthful lusts: but FOLLOW RIGHTEOUSNESS, FAITH, CHARITY, PEACE, WITH them that call on the Lord out of A PURE HEART. 2 Timothy 2:15, 9-22. Many therefore of His disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? John 6:60. To the Christian, the Believer, the Follower of the leading of the Holy Spirit, THIS IS A HARD COMMANDMENT TO FOLLOW. But because this IS a Commandment STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY HIMSELF, all this is doable, all this can be done 100% as Directed. And because this is The Will Of The Lord, anything less is not acceptable. (Yes, the Lord will take what He can get, but He's asking for "Perfect", AND HE EXPECTS TO GET IT). Forget the lame, worn out, worthless excuse, "We're just human, we'll never be Perfect", IT'S JUST AN EXCUSE FOR LAZY PEOPLE LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT OF HIS WAY. Christ said "Do It", the Holy Spirit says "I'll help you do this", and man says it can't be done. WHO'S RIGHT HERE AND WHOM DO YOU BELIEVE, TO WHOM WILL YOU FOLLOW? Satan and the world offer every excuse in the book to not follow this Command of Christ. What is the Cry of YOUR Heart in this? BELIEVER, BE GREATLY ENCOURAGED. IN, WITH AND THROUGH CHRIST, YOU CAN DO THIS. And just to add the "frosting on the cake", "Because it is written, Be ye Holy; for I am Holy". 1 Peter 1:16. Do this, Grow in Christ, and TODAY, Be Blessed.
