Who Are We (pt. 1)

Loving yourself is not submitting to the things of this world, allowing them to define you or your individuality. We often tend to submit our life to things allowing our definition to become by these means. For example, how we live, how we relate to others and the dictating what one should or should not do. In this process as may others we lost how to love ourselves trying to love the way others say they will only love us.

We have to define “who we are” and walk, not by the definition of others perception. Realize within yourself “who you are”, are not the views of what others assume or what we may have been caught within. Often we can get caught in what others dictate “who we are”, and we can get caught walking in that reality. For example, we listen to them and their means of what their perception may be, believing it is so, causing our submission to become their definition. In this process, we loose who we truly are, and forget how to love ourselves becoming their internal reality. Take a moment to reflect; “who you are”, are not your bad decisions, “who you are” are our internal individuality, which is a mix of different internal means, our characteristics. Our “Unspoken  Us”!

Characteristics definitions means a feature or quality belonging typically to a person, place or thing and serving to identify

“Lay not up for yourself treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore mine eye be single, they whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”

Accept

“Judge not, so you shall not be judged”

In this walk we have came witness of love and the testimony of what individuals suppose to do. Love is not a commandment in which we direct an individual of right or wrong, but grow to learn and accept. Our daily failures have seen how we misjudge and misrule, leading individuals according to “you”, a term that we use to single an individual out. Are we guilty of the such torment we cause one another? Are we instantly assuming every individual “should be” according to our own glory? As I have came witness and have seen how we loose causing bitter and hate based off of what an individual should do, I ask, can we grow? And form forgiveness. Let us use our Word to direct the very saying in which we use on us too.

“Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold a beam is in thine own eye?

Listen,

“Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”

                                                Matthew 7:1-5

In Ourwalk, we each have faced fails; fails that we could not take back but accept. We have learned to grow and to learn, leading within us too. Can we face, accepting, learning to love, allowing our hearts not to become full of hurt? According to God he has choose each and every individual, forming, as we each come through. For God has not chosen for our heart to be full of pain nor bitter but to allow every man their walk.

“But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.

Listen,

“Is any man called being circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? Let him be circumcised. Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.”

                                    I Corinthians 7: 17-20

In this walk we lead “forgive”, touching everyone heart.

“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

                                    Matthew 6:14-15 

Fellowship

As we all face certain airs, we come to ask each of you to uplift and encourage. No longer struggling, but leaning unto the one grace of God. For God so promise,allow us to become witness always holding one dear. We hear how each of you want to judge and proclaim within one air. How one perceive, not looking unto the one, seeing the jealousy which do equip. As we all have our own trials, our own test, not to look to judge but love, guiltless. Maybe an individual want to start a new career, or maybe a family member has distant themselves, causing trauma and despair. Well in this trial air let us not come to condemn nor come against but uplift. Giving room to encourage. As we know that we have tried before, we have faced situations in which we have seen others come against. So let us give room of strength, seeing others come through.

For today, we are not to speak against any of you, but come more unto understand, taking the rules within our Word always applying them daily. Even within our day to day we have to stay renewed. We have to seek unto the one living God asking and praying for forgiveness as well as seeking (forgiveness we sern you keep).  “Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt  in yourselves, and have peace one with another.”  Mark 9:50. Below I am going to look to give several scripture reading that each of us can lean unto. Learning to spare, loving, holding the kindness.

“For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.Marvel not, (not boast within) my brethren, if the world hate you.We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.”                1 John 3:11-14

“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.”                I John 3:18-19

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”

             Galatians 5:22-26

For we know that we each go through our day to day trials, even the events that has lead us unto events today. In the mist of our circumstances we each may try to come, gain forgiveness and apply each tool and rule unto our daily self.

Growth

“When thou criest let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land and shall inherit my holy mountain;”

Isaiah 57:13

God states declare;

“Marvel not, my brethen, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethen. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.”

1 John 3: 13, 14

“My little children, let us not love in word neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”

1 John 3: 18

If your heart is not filled with love, one should “lean not to your own understanding” (Proverbs 3: 5), for one should know, “For  if our heart condemn us God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.” (1 John 3: 20)

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,and having on the breastplate of righteousness;”

Ephesians 6:14

Giving honour to his name-Ephesians 2: 15 shares the struggle in him also, to make amends- peace in him (Jesus).

“Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:”

Ephesians 2: 15 -16

(God’s peace-meet) having the hope, we see Christ move- what he too hoped for in his seasons to pass, that he too hoped “that he might reconcile both-us-unto God by one body-he homed to make peace in our souls/ in our body forever–PEACE!

This too make change in ones soul and in ones might-shows Jesus chain in us lay-we home (soul) to chain-“TO FORGIVE”

“And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh: For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”

 Ephesians 2: 17-18

“How we both have access unto the Lord-we give hope-both our seasons to pass!”

Today teaching love and sacrifice–

“And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.”

1 Corinthains 6: 14
