God calls us to have a perfect heart. A perfect heart happens through growing.
Are you happy when God convicts you of wrong doing in your life? Chastisement is a sign of Gods love. We should thank Him that He doesn’t leave us alone in our messes. Whenever God convicts us of sin, we need to thank Him for loving us.
A perfect heart is fully committed.
The word of God is the truth so let’s look at some verses;
“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.” – Philippians 3:12 NLT
“So get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech. Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.” – 1 Peter 2:1-3 NLT
“You have been believers so long now that you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things about God’s word. You are like babies who need milk and cannot eat solid food. For someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.” – Hebrews 5:12-14 NLT
“So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God.” – Hebrews 6:1 NLT
You have to fight the devil. It’s time for your mouth to be saved. I mean what you talk about, what kind of entertainment you have, how you dress. Full Salvation!!
Wake up each morning saying,
“Lord, I give you my mouth so that means I’m not going to complain about little inconvieniences or gossip. I give you my ears so that means I’m not going to sit down and listen to dirty jokes. I give you ALL of me”.
All is such a small word but has a great meaning. The bible says “give thanks in all things and at all times”.
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” – Romans 12:1 NLT
“One day Terah took his son Abram, his daughter-in-law Sarai (his son Abram’s wife), and his grandson Lot (his son Haran’s child) and moved away from Ur of the Chaldeans. He was headed for the land of Canaan, but they stopped at Haran and settled there. Terah lived for 205 years and died while still in Haran.” – Genesis 11:31-32 NLT
God called us out to bring us in! So go through life. Don’t be like Terah who lived for 205 years and died. Leave a mark. Be all that God wants you to be. Make the devil mad and do not settle. Throw the whole world in a stand still for Jesus.
There’s no failure or disappointment in Jesus ❤️
