GOD AND HIS AWESOME WAYS: SELAH!
First and foremost you need to understand the background - we are in this world and there are things we are used to mentally that contradicts what GOD says. So even when we are saved, our mind has to be RENEWED.
So let's start with what we are accustomed to before we came to CHRIST!
1. We only receive good when we give good.
2. Good works leads to good life.
3. GOD is pleased with sacrifices.
4. We need to work hard, for our bank accounts to be full. The harder we work, the fuller it gets.
5. Salvation depends on what kind of life we have lived on earth.
6. There is no concept of restoration in this life.
Now, let's look at it GOD'S Way!
(How about REVERSING it - yup the world's ways stands exactly opposite!)
1. We give good because we have first received good.
[1 John 4:19]
2. We have been given a good life and good works just flows out of it!
[Philippians 2:12, Jeremiah 29:11]
3. GOD Sacrificed His only Son such that we don't have to!
4. Our spiritual bank accounts are already full and the manifestations happen as a result!
5. Salvation has ALREADY been provided in CHRIST and that's why we live life which is worth the calling!
6. Restoration is what GOD is good at, in this life too!
[Joel 2:25-26, Amos 9:14, Isaiah 61:7, Jer.30:17, Job 42:10, 1 John 5:4, 1 Peter 5:10, Matthew 6:33, Psalms 51:12, Zechariah 9:12, Ps. 71:20-21, Acts 3:19-21,etc]
Did you see that?
Whatever has been taught to us by this world, is EXACTLY opposite to what GOD intends for us! That's why RENEWING your mind daily through the WORD everyday is so vital!
We are constantly bombarded with news, media and corruption in this world. We need to KNOW for sure - it's like going against the tide but remember that's the only way to physically inherit all that GOD has died for us to have!
