Almighty and eternal God, you know our problems and our weaknesses better than we ourselves.  In your love and by your power help us in our confusion and, in spite of our weakness, make us firm in faith; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

SANCTIFICATION???

Sanctification is the act or process of being made or becoming holy.

Q: Who makes us Holy???

A: That’s where the debate comes into play…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

I, personally, find man’s attempt on trying to explain the unknown (religion) fascinating and beautiful!  As I learn more about Christianity, the more I realize, I do not know.  What I think was fascinating was the topic we discussed in bible study this morning… We heard a testimony from a catholic priest.  He referred to priests as community representatives… HOWEVER,  I PREFER TO THINK OF GOD’s ELECT AS TEACHERs OF GOD’s WORD…

I will continue to hear from my Lutheran Pastor… Martin Luther… “This life is not godliness, but growth in godliness; not health, but healing; not being, but becoming; not rest, but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way; the process is not yet finished, but it has begun; this is not the goal, but it is road; at present all does not gleam and glitter, but everything is being purified.”

LOVING THAT HOLY SPIRIT…

MAY I SHARE WITH YOU ONE OF THE MANY MIRACLES PERFORMED BY JESUS CHRIST WRITTEN IN MARK???

Mark 7:31-37

Jesus Heals a Deaf-Mute

31 Again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee. 32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him. 33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue. 34 Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”

35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly. 36 Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it. 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”

HMMM… GOD’s ELECT ARE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE COMMUNITY… seriously???

I, now, feel the need to show you something written in our new testament in the Holy Bible…

Sanctification Bible???

James 1:17-27

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. 18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Qualities Needed in Trials

19 So then,[a] my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Doers—Not Hearers Only

21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

26 If anyone among you[b] thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

I LOVE THE WORD…

LET’s GO WORKOUT…
