Conformity?

When you hear a Biblical truth that really attacks who you know you are inside, is your response a spirit of conformity with God’s desires or a spirit of resistance? Do you immediately begin to pray to God to help you make the appropriate change or do you do your best to forget what you heard as soon as you can? Although these may seem like questions that are fairly simply, the truth is that the one who wants to conform is allowing Jesus Lordship in his/her life. The other is denying Jesus access, essentially removing any ability for God to grow him into something usable for His kingdom. What’s more, a “crucified” attitude is one sign of the presence of God’s Spirit in his heart. The other can be a sign of the absence of the Holy Spirit–someone destined to never conform in this life and to be eternally separated from God in hell. Today if you hear God knocking, don’t turn away.

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

In Christ,
