Soul Snack 9/99 ... Devotion's Apex?
Coursing largely unnoticed thru the spiritual veins of His followers is a little perceived righteousness.
There is an internal divine implant that is a compass towards 'right-wise-ness.' In a similar manner to a clock's hands that naturally move clockwise, so too a christian in the pursuit of His 'right'.
This 'right-wise-nes' is the beneficial result of:
- being alerted to my sin,
- rejecting my sin, and then
- becoming dead to sin.
I still often wonder if the hardest part of dying to my sinfulness is recognising my sinfulness!
A life given to righteousness (right-wise-ness) can only be achieved when my sin has been killed within.
... We (have) died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Rms 6:2Is this an apex of devotion, a hitherto unspoken joy, when I can pray:
Thankyou so much Father for showing me my sin and making me alive to your righteousness. May this now be my permanent and inproving state on earth, until I sit before you. Father, each day I want to die a little more to sin. AMEN
