Nearest To Perfection

There are those who believe and there are those who do not believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. For the believer, there is the highest esteem from which to operate in life. It is the esteem from which perfection may be obtained and maintained in order to succeed. There will be no sugar coating here. I will get right to the point. The Holy Spirit moves me only because I allow it to move me. What a choice, huh? Now, because believers are baptized by immersion of water and in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. See 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. Now, any believer that goes through this ritual can operate from this esteem and become successful in life. This believer is operating from the highest esteem and Jesus Christ is in control. God is in Christ and Christ is in the believer. Wherever the believer goes Christ is there also. Therefore, the believer is always held to a higher standard. The conduct of the believer will have a tendency to be Christ like. There would be no room for failure because that believer would walk with Christ, always be conscientious of it and therefore, have utmost respect for God and Christ. Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Much Lesser Mistakes Made

There would be lesser mistakes made, better choices made, and a profound appreciation for self. Parents would be able to raise their children more properly. Parents would also be better role models for their children. The believer should be affiliated with the church or religion that is aligned with the King James Version of the Bible. There would be no more intentional sin committed by this believer. This believer allows Jesus Christ total control over his or her life. This believer will unlikely say anything wrong in public or to any person again because Jesus Christ is in the conscious of this believer. All activities be at sports or any game the conduct of the believer is always appropriate. Even as a respectable, alcoholic drinker the believer can remain appropriate. The believer must be consistent with maintaining an excellent relationship with Jesus Christ. There is no excuse to fall off operating from the highest esteem. If so, all hell can break loose for the believer. The believer should not make the mistake and go backwards into the former life. This character of operating has the best aptitude for shining light of goodness as well. The believer would be pleasing to God, Jesus Christ, neighbors and self.

Advantages With No Disadvantages

There is so much of an advantage in this operating that happens without mentioning because its goodness is multifaceted. The believer will show in life to be a Christian. The Holy Spirit will move the believer. By the way, this applies to those who would wonder how the Holy Spirit works or moves in a person. This is the most unique way of the Holy Spirit. This is for a person that must be born again in order to reap the blessings of this esteem.

The More Fortunate

There are believers that need not be born again. Fortunately, for them they more likely operate from the highest esteem. They have avoided sinful like experiences. They have automatically lived the Christian life. They may have experienced certain aspects of hurt and pain but perhaps, not as much as a wretched person or a person of the wilderness that needs repenting. A person usually does not come to the point of operating from the highest esteem until after exhausting all ways of trying to succeed on own accord.

The Temporary Satisfied

Unfortunately, there are people that prefer too operate on their own accord. They may be temporarily successful and satisfied. There are religions that prefer to operate on their own accord and or agendas. If you have not tried it, I suggest trying this method with patience and determination and see whether or not it works for yourself.

This may entail the constant reading of the Bible, assembling at church, constant prayer, forgiveness, love for all people and positive thinking. Do not be amazed if you turned out to be a well-rounded person. Your character and attitude can spread abroad.

    Having high moral standards for oneself is so important and especially today with so many choosing to care only for themselves. How much better a place the world could be if more chose to take the right road rather than the easy one.

    It is inspiring to read how others come to know spiritual peace and guidance. I don't know if there is a wrong way or right way to do this. Everyone is different with how they perceive things. Some will follow in the footsteps of their parents, and some will find a guidance on their own that fits them and their personality. So, yes, all very interesting discussion. :)

    Thank you Dana for stopping by. It was a great challenge but it is still in the beginning. I'm glad I had decided to let go and let God take over my life. When you're young or younger, it's not that you don't want to but you just don't know how to let God. I thank God that He has allowed me to be obedient and allow Him to have complete control over my life. He knows best. Be blessed!

    "For the believer, there is the highest esteem from which to operate in life." I interpret this to mean that the sense of worth increases in individuals who practice their belief and trust in God. Your last paragraph offers practical proofs of that belief. With these activities, the believer cannot go wrong. Thank you.

    You definitely exhibit the exemplary behavior that shows you have grown in Christ. I have dedicated my life to His will and not my own. I am still growing and struggle daily but it has been a marvelous journey.
