God’s Unconditional Love……..

God doesn’t want us sin-conscious, he wants us God-Conscious. See, the reason Adam and Eve Knew they were naked, is they ate from the tree Of the knowledge Of Good and evil! Prior to this, they were just “Innocent.” (Even if Naked!).

Now, if they needed to be clothed for some reason, God would have told them, because they were in fellowship, with him.

God and them would fellow-ship and everything was hunky dunky When we have to decide for ourselves what is good (or evil) that’s what seperates us from God!

When we realize how much God loves us, it’s so easy to love him back! Seriously! it is.

So then, if we are God Conscious, we are all in love with him!! (Because we KNOW (intimately, or first-hand) How much he loves US.

When we are sin-conscious, we worry all the time if God is upset with us, or if we are being punished, And that is what some people will teach us to do. People who don’t know God, who see themselves as prophets (and teachers).

No wonder Paul said “who has bewitched you?,” You were running a good race? “Who cut in on you?”

He also said…..”I wish they would cut themselves off!!” (Book of Galations)

Being led by the Spirit is such a beautiful thing!

We don’t live in that Old Testament “prophets” showing up- telling- us- we- are- in- sin type of time. We live in a world of Grace, thousands of angels rejoicing! full of light, full of wonder! and full, I might add of the glory of God!

Remember falling in love? all you could think of is how you are dressed! do you smell good? All you could think of is being with your beloved……and wanting to please them…….right?

Some of these get married and, being in love and wanting to please turns into “fear of upsetting their spouse” (because they are always upset at them about something. do you see how the relationship dynamic changes then?

People who love God do not “intentionally sin” they are in training with the master, and they are his children, and he says what their priority is right now, not man.

It’s not good. A good counsellor will show them how to be in love again. It works the same with God………

Just as God told Adam and Eve NOT to eat from that tree, born again believers are told by God (by his Spirit) what to partake of or not partake of. Yes, you can exhort people, but ultimately what a person does IS between them and God.

1 John 3:8-10 “He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.”

How the BRAIN (mind of Christ) edifies the body……….(this is important!)

brain-mind

I want to talk today about how the brain (the mind of Christ) edifies the Body (his people). So if you are grafted in (part of the Body of Christ)…..Whatever part you are, feet, hands, ears, eyes……When your toe gets stepped on what happens in the natural? 

OUCH! (your brain is instantly notified) You want to make it stop (right now!). If you see a train coming, the brain says “MOVE” and so on, and so forth. 

Likewise (this is so simple) So when the bible says the body edifies itself in love, or we should not say “we have no need of you” (to the foot, the hands, etc) We should all have the mind of Christ (the brains, of this operation!). 

When one suffers, we all suffer! (we are a body!). Now think on this for a minute, the eye sees what’s coming (Notifies the brain) and the renewed mind of Christ prays! 

The ear hears (speaks to the rest) and again (with the mind of Christ involved!) as it edifies! The Mind of Christ will never say “Panic!” “You’re doomed!” “In trouble?” Yes maybe (Pray!!) …..but anyway that’s my little message today, which the Lord put on my heart to share with you! I want you to remember, every part (of your body) Is important to you therefore, every part is important to the Lord as well!

Now if a foreign object gets in (to your body) what happens? It irritates! Causes infection! Has to be removed! (and we pray about this as well.) 

Father please help us remember…..Wrong thinking leads to big mistakes! so God is after us to learn! Grow! and to get more insight from Him (about what we should do next!) Just doing my part…..as part of the Body…………My love to you all! (just a reminder!) In Jesus’ name!
