What is Jesus saying personally to me today – Assume Holiness
“this would hardly become the saints! ” . Paul frequently refers to people as saints, assuming their holiness rather than the belief that they are on their way. The same can go for ourselves, our holiness is inherent and our true disposition. When we allow ourselves to be defined by our flaws, we become our flaws as a self fulfilling prophecy. Assume holiness is the word for today.
Thank you for speaking to me Jesus
How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?
Simple, stop believing in the lies that my mind’s telling me at the moment. A great invitation to see myself as God sees me is on offer as it always is and it is all up to me to ensure my focus is on the holiness within me. Apparently there is a saint inside of me so that it what I will focus, concentrate and see with in me.
allow me through your grace to see my true self made in your image.
Be friends with one another, and kind, forgiving each other as readily as God forgave you in Christ.
Try, then, to imitate God as children of his that he loves and follow Christ loving as he loved you, giving himself up in our place as a fragrant offering and a sacrifice to God. Among you there must be not even a mention of fornication or impurity in any of its forms, or promiscuity: this would hardly become the saints! There must be no coarseness, or salacious talk and jokes – all this is wrong for you; raise your voices in thanksgiving instead. For you can be quite certain that nobody who actually indulges in fornication or impurity or promiscuity – which is worshipping a false god – can inherit anything of the kingdom of God. Do not let anyone deceive you with empty arguments: it is for this loose living that God’s anger comes down on those who rebel against him. Make sure that you are not included with them. You were darkness once, but now you are light in the Lord; be like children of light.
