In Him - In Whom

 

 

In Him - In Whom

Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed  [METAMORPHISIS] by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

·       ·        What is the first thing that comes into your mind when a negative situation appears before you?

·       ·        When an unexpected bill comes; do you think:

a)     a)      How in the world am I going to pay this bill?

b)     b)      Maybe I can not pay this one this month and catch up later.

c)     c)      Maybe I should sell something so I can pay the bill.

d)     d)      Maybe I should work a few more hours to make the extra money.

e)     e)      Maybe I can borrow this amount of money; or

f)      f)        I believe it’s time to make a withdrawal from my heavenly account.  (Have I planted enough seed to meet the need?)…..

 

 

How do we renew our minds?

Eph 5:26  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

·       ·        The Word will cleanse you and sanctify you.  How?

Psa 119:11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart (spiritual center), that I might not sin against thee. (Sin is done in the flesh.  So doing something to your spirit will affect your flesh.)

·       ·        How do I hide the Word in my heart?

a)     a)      Do I go to the doctor and have him place it in me surgically?

b)     b)      Do I set up a reading the Bible plan?

c)     c)      Do I set up a Scripture memorizing plan?

1.     1.      Let’s take a little test.

a)     a)      How are you?  [ Blessed of the Lord. ]

b)     b)      How are you feeling?  [ Well!, Healed, from the top of my head to the tip of my toes ]

c)     c)      How are your finances? [ Blessed! Jesus was made poor so that I would be rich.]

d)     d)      How are your children? [A blessing of the Lord.]

e)     e)      How’s the job going?

f)      f)        How’s The Body of Christ doing?  [It is growing like wildflowers.]

g)     g)      Where are you going to be or what will you be doing next year at this time?]

Back to hiding the Word in our heart.

Now we know that if we hide the word in our heart, we will not sin against Him.  So, what does that really mean to each of us?

Jesus said in Mat 12:34  O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.  We also know that in Prov 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Mat 12:36  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

So, if our mouth speaks from the resource that is in our heart, we need to make sure that the resource is producing what we want.  And our tongue creates life or death; we ought to speak life.  On top of that, we are responsible for every idle or non-productive, unemployed or lazy word we speak…and will have to give account of them.

 

Let’s now go to the Word.
