Loser believers whose glory is in their shame, Part 6.

Tuesday, January 30, 2001

Point 3. Questions and Principles we all need to Answer and Understand in Relationship to the Doctrine of Shame.

GAL 6:4But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another.”

When I stand in the presence of the Lord at the judgment seat of Christ will He say (MAT 25:21,23) to me, “Well done, good and faithful servant.?”

Or will I be ashamed that I have rejected the spiritual skills, ignored the divine motivation behind grace, and lived in ignorance concerning the PPOG?

From E/P God has wisely provided my needs based on His grace and love for me, PHI 4:19.

He also knows that I must keep His authority always before me.

REV 3:5Thus the winner shall be clothed in white garments and I will never blot out his title out of the book of life. In fact I will acknowledge his title in the presence of My Father and before His angels.”

Turn to 2PE 1:10

God is aware of my lack of capacity for blessing and He seeks to adjust that through the law of volitional responsibility and divine discipline, GAL 6:7, HOS 8:7.

Turn to REV 3:18

When I reject the correction of God in my life, things becomes worse and what is not restrained eventually becomes lawless.

If the Lord does not go before me, I am on the wrong track.

DEU 31:8And the Lord is the one who goes ahead of you [the point]. He will be with you. He will not fail or forsake you. Do not fear and do not panic.”

Turn to HEB 4:13

Many times it takes divine discipline to discover who is in charge.

I have been given the capacity to love the Lord and at the same time I have been given the discipline to fear and respect the Lord.

I have the option of learning and using the spiritual skills to glorify God or the option to live for myself and my goals and my plans.

The believer who does not recognize the authority of the infallible word of God as the mind or thinking of Christ can never find happiness.

For those believers who reject authority there is only pain and suffering in the form the law of volitional responsibility– HOS 8:7; GAL 6:7-8; COL 3:25, and the law of divine discipline.
