Looking Inward & Outward (with the goggle of Faith) – Part 82

Dearly Beloved,

The following is another attempt to use the goggle of Faith to weigh various inspired thoughts, on another blessed day.

  1. The way and economy of a believer is, in reality, actually different from that of a carnal believer or of an unbeliever (1Cor. 2:14-16, 2Cor. 6:14-15). We can start up by sharing a lot in common with them, which in such seasons makes us carnal believers, but by learning and living by the power of God (Christ), we should journey to a place where we share nothing in common (their way/manner of relating on earth) with them; even as we become born by the Spirit (2Cor. 6:14-18, Jn. 3:6, Rev. 14:3d-4). The Church was instituted to stop carnality; but, unfortunately, has been fostering it. However, that order is changing. The Church (the souls of many believers) would soon be emptied of the world.
  2. The Lord Jesus actually expects every believer that isn’t ashamed of the gospel to go about walking in the obedience of the faith; in a way/manner that carries the epistle spirit: that affects the Church and inspires almost every carnal believer (that have crossed their paths) to get out of their disobedience. (2Cor. 7:8-11, Heb. 10:24). So, the indifference of a believer who has been exposed to the faith resident in Christ, comes at a cost/negative impact to himself and to others. It makes the Christian faith look like other religions because that indifference is a sign that our faith lacks power (1Cor. 1:18/2:5/4:20, 2Tim. 1:8).
