Proverbs of a 35 yr old man
Do not miss this, put your spiritual glasses on provided by Holy Spirit. Christ suffered here on earth. He suffered in a mortal body once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. Meaning he suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit. He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before God. Purifying our consciences from works of death, so that we may serve the living God! Knowing this truth we must arm ourselves with the same determination Jesus had. Being ready to suffer as he did, because suffering shows that you have stopped sinning. For the person who has died has been freed from sin. Jesus says, suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. For God called you to live righteously, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been suffering violence, and the violent have been seizing it by force. It is due time we fight for the kingdom of heaven within us. Let us not live out our remaining time on earth for human passions, but for the will of God.
