MORNINGTIME 3857by Benjamin Munsell on October 11, 2021
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is GOoD to the use of Edifying, that it may minister Grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, Forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:29-32. WARNING: HEART ATTITUDE TEST TIME. The verses above tell us what TO do, and they tell us what NOT to do. They are very specific both ways. And what better way to find out exactly where YOU stand than to look at, read, ponder over and muse on these verses, AND AT THE SAME TIME, LOOK AT THE WORLD AROUND US. Think about the things you've seen and heard just this week. Input from friends and family, TV news and radio, internet and published articles. IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU CRAZY, IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE YOUR BLOOD BOIL, IT'S ENOUGH TO REALLY MAKE YOU ANGRY! And that's just the point. Does the "news" today make you want to go "kill" (talk very hatefully) someone, to cast aside their stupid laws and ridiculous mandates? Do you actually wish harm to someone you don't like? Do the things the government wants to do bring out the anger in you? THIS IS A TEST FROM THE LORD, He allows these things to come upon us so we can see the hidden Heart Attitudes we have buried in our Hearts. THE LORD WANTS TO CLEAN OUT ALL THE DEEP DARK SINFUL WORLDLY ATTITUDES OF THE HEART, and replace them with His Love, Joy, Peace, Contentment and Patience TOWARDS ALL OTHERS. We are to share Christ with a lost and dying world quickly moving down the road to Hell. We are to Preach, Share and Show Christ to others, in spite of there "deadly" attitude. If we Believers don't reflect Christ, who will? EXAMINE YOURSELF, ask Christ to Cleanse your Heart of everything opposed to the Lord, that they see Christ, and will, Be Blessed.
