And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”
So then, be careful how you walk, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
1 Thessalonians 4:3a NASB "This is the will of God, your sanctification".
What is sanctification? "the action of making or declaring something holy".
The Spirit guides us into all truth...to make us Holy as He is Holy.
We know Colossians 3:23-25 NASB "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord and not for people, knowing that it is from the Lord that you will receive the reward of (the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. For the one who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality."
In our daily walk with Jesus, it's always important to make the Bible your primary knowledge base. Be careful of getting wrapped up in head knowledge from people and books outside of it. The Heavens are occupied by Children of God and Angels. Not Denominations and Angels. Our lives are to be that of Christ followers. Of being found to be His Disciples.
It's going to hurt when we need to speak up to guide others in God's truth sometimes. Keeping silent because of our own past is not going to help others to be on a path of righteousness. The discipline Proverbs spoke of earlier has to do with imparting the positive wisdom learned from generation to generation.
I had a very clear object lesson in this myself. Several decades ago I was in an accident caused by black ice. AFTER I had it, my Dad told me what I could have done to avoid it. I do remember telling him that that information would have been most helpful BEFORE I had the accident.
I often find myself praying for me to do better in life today than I did yesterday. I pray this often for others as well.
Please don't allow sins to repeat themselves in others just because you made them yourself.
We have enough trouble in dealing with the god of this world, we don't need to help him.
