God called us to live a holy life
God called us to live a holy life
1 Peter 1:15-16, 1Peter 2:9 Gal 2 :20 Romans 12:1-2
We are called to live a holy life because of where He has rescued us from into His marvellous light.
We are called to live as living sacrifices and this is present continuous so it’s every day.
Remember God doesn’t call us to live this life without giving us the opportunity or the ability to live right. He already gave us the ability to enter into His presence freely to receive forgiveness as his children.
Let’s remember we are a temple of God and He resides in us by God’s Spirit. 1 Cor 3:16
There are two places in the Bible were God resides directly with humans; there was the garden of Eden and also now in us who are the temples of the Holy Spirit. In Genesis 3, People sinned and the glory of God departed from them and so we should also be careful not to take His sacrifice lightly.
Also if we are living willfully in sin, it’s not necessary to come to the table for holy communion because some people fall sick and die if they partake of the body in an unworthy manner.
1 Cor 11:28-30
It’s usually the three things of the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life that keep us playing with sin. 1 John 2:16 We need to flee from them.
In John 17:14-17, Jesus prays for us His church and prays that God will uphold us. We don’t need to be taken away from the world but we can be upheld by God in this world itself if we yield to Him and His ways.
God is asking us to come back with our hearts repented and living for His glory. How can we hope to be the light of the world if we can’t live this life which he has called us to do?
Matthew 5:14 , Romans 8:35
As a father, he knows all our hearts so there is no pretence before Him. Nothing can separate us from the Love of God. Oh, how He loves us!
Praise the Lord!
Be ye doers of the Word!
James 1:22 Every Word of God requires a verb of God is an action! We are supposed to be acting on the word alone and not just hearing about it! Similarly, just like when we walk with one eye open instead of two, there are so many things we miss out on and have more […]
Live Sermon by Pastor Blessen Cherian on 8-Nov-19 at The Church of the Redeemed Remnant
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.
For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.”
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?” 1 Corinthians 3:1-4
Message From The Word – You are one of these three people – Pastor Blessen Cherian – 8th November 2019
There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen. No matter what you’re facing, we’d love to pray with you!
