Really Live and Let Live
Really living in the Spirit
How do you bless God? The Scripture says to "Bless the Lord at all times". Impossible you say. I need Him because I am not perfect, but He is, so I bless Him in my striving for perfection. I need Him because the trust I place in others is usually conditional short lived. His love is unconditional and eternal. When I am sleep He is There. When I am awake, He is there. When I feel lonely, He quickly reminds me that I am not alone.
The passing of time is so apparent when you reach a certain age. The parents die. Friends your same age become scarce. You no longer have that feeling of forever. His Spirit makes everything new and focused. His Spirit makes life more purposeful. You become less serious about everything. You can see the light in a childs eye, or the light that should be there but isn't. In obeying His Spirit you become aware of people and their intentions. You make great effort to stay connected to His Spirit because the flesh can be very deceiving and misrepresenting. Things are not always the way they appear. People are not always who they portray. So you don't judge, because the true nature or intent of people always reveales. itself.
Do you realize that If you don't obey Him, you won't praise Him. Meaning if you do not have a relationship (know Him) you can't relate to His chastizment. You will not know to relinquish your agenda to the Holy Spirit which will make it purposeful for the Glory of God. You will not recognize when God's Spirit is working on behalf of another or yourself. Praise and Deliverance comes elevated, and progresses to the next level. Example: It is as if a high ranking officer enters the room, the lowest ranking office automatically becomes subservien. Or better yet, when your respect for your parents, demands that you be silent because they are about to speak. It is awlsome to be obedient to Him. God is the one and only, Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent force in the universe (Proverbs 15:3; Ephesians 4:6). God manifests Himself in and through all of creations (John 1:3; Acts 17:26).
To live in the Spirit you have to believe in the incarnation of spirit in man, and that a man, regardless of race, creed or condition is and incarnation of the one Spirit (Genesis 2:7; Acts 17:26). Spirit speaks like a natural man. He leads and guides you in a direction of love and peace. He allows you to connect to people for a common purpose of love and compassion. Not every one is receptive but that does not detour the purpose. As the spirit is developed in you you are able to walk in a light of courage and purpose.
The height of moral conduct is achieved daily, in the daily living of the Golden Rule " love your neighbor has yourself, (Leviticus 19:18)and Honor your Father and Mother ( Matthew 19:19; 22:39). To be placed in a position of trust opens the doors for many mountains to climb. So many people don't understand what unconditional love is. They do not know that God has agents, ambassdors, better known as His servants to represent Him. He provides people that can be discipline enought in their own personal life that they can bring comfort and offer compassion to the needy. How can you love your neighbor as yourself? First, you must love yourself. That means love the God within you that is daily assisting, changing, and guiding you to your purpose. You can't be of much help to the needy when you are spiritually underdeveloped yourself. I believe He puts His chosen servants in a rememberance situation that convicts them for life. It maybe the lost of a loved one, a life threatening illness, an accident, etc. Whatever it is, it sets you on a path forward and gives you a drive to succeed.
With the above declarations of truths, praising Him is achieved by hearing, seeing, and demonstrating. All jump-started by the Source Himself, God, the Father, the Son, and the HoLynn Ghost.
