Is God saddened when His Children choose to add to its simplicity or disobey His Handbook Guidelines for living?
Centuries ago, the pain experienced by Paul is expressed in a letter to the Galatian Church. Paul returned for a visit and discovered they had departed from his teaching and were back absorbing surrounding culture and ‘fitting in’ with others..
N.K.J. Gals, 4:19.
My little children for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you.
Paul likened his pain to the suffering experienced in childbirth.
(Does our GOD see and experience in 2021 the same pain as absorbing of culture in many churches continues to take away from the Message of the Cross for all humankind? }
Romans 8,29 expresses why the resurrection of Christ and then the coming of God the Holy Spirit should radically change ALL ‘Born Again’ Believers. We must know we are born again! Died to self.
For whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the Image of His Son that He might be the first-born among many brethren.
We must be ‘re-born’ into His Spiritual Kingdom …………..follow Christ crucified to self…re-born -resurrection.
THIS EARTH IS NOT OUR HOME.
As re-born children we must accept and KNOW that surrender to God the Holy Spirit allows the Divine Sanctifier to constantly inform and change us………All the days of our lives.
We do not need to DO anything or work on any program, This is GRACE, Divine Surrender to Our Great God of TRINITY..
