Holy And Acceptable

The world is constantly promoting its agenda through all aspects of our physical senses, mostly through our eyes and ears.  Social media is filled with man’s views on just about every topic one can fathom.  Advertising sources promote their paths to social acceptance and trends which ultimately impact the immature.  Unless we are strong in faith and our beliefs based on FATHER’S Word, we too will be impacted by these agendas.

When people focus on the world’s ways, they tend to lose sight of FATHER’S ways and HIS Divine Intent.  People tend to follow the path of least resistance when compromise takes hold.  Laziness replaces steadfastness.  Short-term fixes replace long-term commitments to walk according to HIS Word.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 12:

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

The renewing of our minds is not a one-time task but requires us to maintain a state of renewal as long as we are subjected to the world’s influence through the various media sources.  There are also those we come in contact who are promoting the world’s agenda and will try to influence us even in a passive fashion.  People attempt to protect their belief system by convincing others to agree with them.  The current political environment is a perfect example.


When we present ourselves to FATHER as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable, then we can be used in a greater manner.  Our hearing improves as well.  Our goal should be to walk as vessels of honor, known to be Jesus’ disciples and spread the Gospel as He did.  Jesus spoke in John chapter 8:

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

What an honor it is to be a disciple of Jesus and walk in the same manner He walked.  As we mature into the fullness of abiding in HIS Word, we will be empowered just as the disciples were empowered when Jesus commanded them in Matthew chapter 10:

1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Notice how they were given the same power and authority Jesus walked in:

Matthew 4:23  And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

As we abide in The Word and walk in Agape Love, we will have a new compassion for those who are in need.  We will develop a deep desire to minister life and healing to all.  Let us express our Love by a daily commitment to be holy and acceptable in HIS sight.
