I've said before that I really believe that the Lord is bringing up a remnant of followers that will stand up and do what's right, no matter the cost. And that "cost" may be other believers who just don't understand your convictions and your change of lifestyle, and accuse you of being legalistic! Now, in order to do what is right, we must know what God says in His Holy Word, New Testament and Old Testament! Yes, we have His Grace now through the Blood, but that doesn't mean we can just do what we want!! God still wants us to please Him with our actions... And our motives behind those actions. Look up the word please in your concordance in the NT, and find out what God says about it.
Why do I think that the Lord is bringing up a remnant? Well, its the last days and God requires a spotless Bride!!! Think about it.
Now my challenge to you (and to myself) is to examine yourself and ask the Lord to examine and search your heart to reveal if there is ANYTHING that needs to change. Ungodliness, pride, anger, selfishness, your tv viewing choices, your choice of clothing, gossiping, etc... The list could go on, but you get the point. Throughout the NT, the Lord commands us to examine ourselves. But do we honestly do that? Do we honestly do that, comparing ourselves to the Standard of a Holy God?
God is a Merciful God...AND He is a HOLY God!!!! He loves us, so much so, that He doesn't want us to continue in our "little, respectable" sins.
Please take the time to watch this video. I saw this on another blog that I enjoy. And I had to add it here.
