Obedience [to God]
This is where the Holy Spirit is. Where people line themselves up with God's Word and repent when they read where they failed. The Holy Spirit is there when you are judging yourself through God's Word and turning your feet unto HIS testimonies (Psalm 119:59). That is loving God with all your heart. You show you are willing to judge yourself and you are doing your part in God's plan to make sure you are pure and free of any sin.
God works with us in this process. It's a "fellowship". The greek word "fellowship" is synonymous and interchangeable with "partnership" here:
"That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ." 1 John 1:3
Greek word for "fellowship" is koinōnia.
Definition: "Fellowship, association, community, communion, joint participation, intercourse. The share which one has in anything, participation
intercourse, fellowship, intimacy
the right hand as a sign and pledge of fellowship (in fulfilling the apostolic office)
a gift jointly contributed, a collection, a contribution, as exhibiting an embodiment and proof of fellowship
We must love God with all our hearts and our neighbors as OURSELVES. According to God's definition of love.
How can you call anyone else to repentance if you yourself are in rebellion? That is hypocrisy! And God would be unjust to condemn sinners who resist God and yet allow you into heaven. You who profess they know God "but in works they deny Him..." (Titus 1:16).
"And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." Luke 12
"and prepared not himself,"
We have to ask ourselves, "Am I preparing myself as the Lord commands?"
You can be saved!
God loves the people in the world so much that He came down to die for us. If God is opening your heart to His message and you feel convicted for your sins which have separated you from a holy God and you feel the need to be forgiven, then say this prayer. This is how I was powerfully converted to the Christ in 1997!
Say, "My Lord and my God, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe Jesus the Christ died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. I believe Jesus raised from the dead and ascended into heaven and is now on the right-hand side of God listening to this prayer. I open up the door of my heart and I invite You in, Lord Jesus. Thank you, God, for saving my soul and I vow to serve you with all my heart which is the first and greatest commandment. Amen."
Please read the Bible and pray everyday so we can find out what it is that pleases God and what doesn't please Him. He expects us to seek Him in His word for these answers.
May God the Father bless you all who love the Lord Jesus, Amen.
