Heaven Bound or Hell Bent?

If all evil were wiped clean from the earth, who would be left?

What encouragement is there for us who long for Goodness to prevail and the sickness of depravity to be gone?

Even God's Holy Spirit doesn't ask us to make right what needs correction in us (what we cannot change in our human capacity), so why do we do this (expect it) "of other?"

He shows/reveals to us and shines His light of truth on what He detects is counter-Godliness. He "helps us to see" and accept the truth, acknowledge it and allow Him to change what needs changing.

How can a unregenerate spirit within us change itself into the character of the Living and HOLY God? It can't.

We more readily point out the wrongs and sins of others, but what position will this place us in the eyes of a Holy God? For sin is only against God not man.

The wrongs mankind does to one another is carnal, but the wrongs done against a Loving and Pure God, is spiritual sin.

Our mere effort to justify ourselves shows our guilt and need of transformation, we are trying to hide in the darkness. BUT, if we confess our wrongdoing and where we lack, agreeing with God's Sprit of Truth, God hears us, proving we are in His Light.

Just as parents are to praise and encourage their children when they do good and in love correct them when they do wrong, so does God! Do good and live. Do wrong and there are consequences unto death.

God Grace is sufficient and His Love everlasting.

We might be able to clean the outside of our earthly vessels, but really only God can cleanse the innermost workings of our soul and ignite a flame of the Spiritual Life that gives real breath to our whole being!

For as God is Spirit, so is man in His image: spirit, body and soul (The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost).

What is God's "Good News" of His Grace for you, for me?

"Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father." Galatians 1:4
