In my wonderful native country that I love America, most people believe that they are Christians just because they are born here. Not true. Who you are is American and being an American we have privileges that those who are not Americans desire. Just as being a true CHRISTian provides us with privileges that Christians think that they have. Maybe you wonder why I am always writing CHRISTian vs Christian, it is because I am emphasizing the true CHRISTian those of us who are actually washed in the blood of JESUS is possessed by CHRIST JESUS vs those who profess CHRIST JESUS, yet have no relationship in HIM and their lives do not reflect HIS Word, character or integrity, they are religious.
Religious people demand that people live the life of the commandments that even the Jews failed miserably at doing. Whereas, those of us who are in a relationship with CHRIST JESUS learn to live freely according to HIS commandment of love when we freely give ourselves over to HIM and allow HIM to teach us, then, when we mature in HIS Word we do live according to the moral commandments. What are the moral commandments you may be thinking? They are the Ten Commandments which can only be obeyed when we have love, living within, which will spill out of us onto those that we know and do not know. But most of all we love GOD the FATHER and CHRIST JESUS the SON. Our identity in CHRIST JESUS is HIS gift to us because we will possess HIS identity, sufficiency, and HIS qualifications.
Exodus 20:7 “Never use the name of the LORD your GOD carelessly. [GW]. That is, lightly or frivolously, in false affirmations or profanely. How many of you reading this blog is guilty of this action? No worries, acknowledge this to the FATHER and yourself, now move on and live your life in HIS forgiveness.
Matt. 5:33-37 just tell the honest truth and mean yes or no when you say it.
