Scripture: Matthew 13: 1-9
Notes: God established us in Him so we can set trends. We are supposed to show the world how to: deal with trouble and pain, solve problems and show others what real happiness and joy is. That’s why we are here. He created us so the world can see these things in us. That’s why we are a chosen generation and a holy people. When He brought us out of darkness into His marvelous light we became His ambassadors. Don’t ever take your salvation lightly. He has given you what you need to show the world Christ.
The pattern has already been set for who we are. In the first chapter of Corinthians, Paul explained to the church who they are. We are God’s righteousness and we are called to be holy and can be confident in whose and whom we are. You have to know who you are. He has given you everything you need to be holy and it comes with having the Holy Ghost. Its important for us to be sure we have the Spirit of God and that the Spirit is active in our lives.
Having the Holy Ghost
The Spirit of God helps you to be aware and evaluate yourself. God knows who we are and has given us help to counteract the flesh. When the flesh rises up the Spirit helps you to modify it. God knew we would miss the mark, but don’t stay there. Get up quickly. If you sin we have an advocate. You can tell when the test comes you will definitely know. However, it is His desire that we all come to repentance. That is why we have to allow the word to take root in us. That word should bear fruit, some 100, some 60, some 30.
