Friends Can Remind Us Who We Belong To
I had lunch with a sweet friend today. I love being around sisters that you can just feel the Holy Spirits presents when you are with them. You know that once we have accepted the free gift of salvation that the Lord offers we really are changed. People will be able to see the transformation in the way we do everything from our speech, our dress, to the way we treat others, our actions really do speak louder than our words. We can say all day long that we are a child of the King but if our lives don't show it then was it really real? The word says" Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (KJV) Matthew 7:21 If we have really made the Lord King of our hearts then we will want to do his will. The things that seem "normal" for this old world will not be what we will want to do. So now might be a good time to stop and do a check of our hearts do we desire God and his will or are we trying to do what we want and justifying it because everyone else says it is ok? We all sometimes loose track of the main focus but we should never be ok with it or let it become our life style.
