A question or two for you… But don’t answer me. Just think about it, and keep it to yourself. Thank you.
Why willfully change, if you are not going to visibly live the change? Why willfully surrender to transformation, if you are not going to put it to good use?
If you are mentally going to remain the same, then you will spiritually remain the same. And your freewill change or transformation will be in vain. Ultimately, you will return to your vomit. Ultimately, you are really the same. It is just that your true self is dormant. The real you is still there in the shadows. Waiting.
God has given to every man a measure of faith.
Exercise it. Use it to surrender to Him. Choose by the faith given to you of God to surrender to Him. Receive God’s gift of repentance. Repent. Let Him convert you.
Then with His Spirit in you, having His faith, choose to do His will with the change He has worked in you and for you and through you. God tells us if we love Him, we will do what He says. Think on that.
Meditate on the Word of God. Be led and guided into all truth by the Spirit of God, Who will also give you understanding.
Choose by faith and the Power of God to be that one He put life in you to be. Live to please God. Live to glorify God. Live, being edified in truth, in God. Then edify others in truth by God.
