As believers and followers of Christ Jesus, our lives should demonstrate our faith - Living epistles to encourage the Body of Christ and to witness those who have not come to the knowledge of the TRUTH. In the true believer's lifestyle, we reflect the Shine of God's glory for all to see.
Because of this reason, we want always to be mindful not to get too ahead of ourselves; thinking that we have "arrived" can cause many to stumble. May we remain humble servants and not think more highly of ourselves than we ought.
Having a high-minded mindset has led many of us to speak our own words of human wisdom when witnessing to others, saying things that should not be said, trying to sound eloquent and so heavenly intelligent that no one really knows what you're even talking about, and what is said bears no accurate Biblical context. God desires for us to be Holy, not Heavenly untouchable.
This mindset has caused many to fall and face unwanted embarrassment, and most seriously, Holy Spirit will be vacant quickly in the presence of foolish talking and self-professed words when we speak and act this way. None of us have ever been gifted to speak as if we were Seraph, and our middle name is 'Immaculate piety of the divine select''.
God will not share His glory with another. This we can most definitely be assured! Until next time, Blessings to all, keep shining and always stay encouraged.
I Corinthians 1:28 - 31
28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,
29 so that no one may boast before him.
30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
I Corinthians 1 and 2
1 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.
2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
