Spiritual Things - EX Ministries

"Spiritual Things"
2 Timothy 3:5 - 'They will act as if they are religious, but they
will reject the power that could make them godly. You must stay
away from people like that.' - NLT 
We can talk all day long about how a believer shouldn't do this or shouldn't do that. We say all the time that if you are in Christ you should not do certain things, but yet we look for ways to get around what Jesus said because we think for some reason, that his word is just trying to stop our fun. Well, my friend, Jesus is not trying to stop your fun, he is wanting to save your life. Sin equals death! So, there are things that he wants you to stop doing when you are truly born again and if you continue to do those things, you will die, plain and simple. It's not a question of whether or not you can keep doing it and be saved, but it is a question of, if you are saved, then why do it? When we accept Christ, we should not try to just accept a form of him, but we need to accept his POWER!!! What power?

The power to not practice sin
The power of the Holy Ghost to make you a new creature
The power to make old things pass away and all things become new
The power to not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage
The power to be what God created you to be
The power to heal, set free, cast out demons
The power to speak things that are not as though they are
The power to become a true son of God and represent his image
The power to be like God and operate in his glory!!

Why are you settling for just a "form" of godliness? Many act like the world, talk like the world, sin like the world, and spend all their time doing what the world does. Don't you know that's having a form of godliness but denying the power?

Suggested Reading: John 17:2, 1Cor. 7:37, Rom. 9:21, Rev. 2:26
