be ye holy
be ye holy
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
Conversation meaning Life
It is not just how we talk it is also what we do and think
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
How often do we have thoughts that are not like God?
We have malice, contention, hatred and fight for the wrong reasons
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
our ideas when people do things we don’t like that they are against but we fail to see the spirit and then we allow the spirit of the devil to use us instead of letting God use us
we are still fighting in the flesh while we are trying to walk in the spirit
Paul said it like this
For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
We need to consult God and follow the leading of the Holy Ghost
Don’t go according to your own thoughts nor on how you feel but according to the word and the spirit it is time out for trying to do things by the way we think but according to God
That means much prayer, faith, waiting and studying God’s word
