Character Change

 In a Bible study I had tonight I was told that if I had come to the knowledge of the Son of God through a different avenue than this website I would probably be blown out of the church by now. This person said it would have been because of your character at that time without proper guidance. This person also said the same would be true if they were in my shoes because our nature is to beat people with truth. I don't know if that is what I would have done but it is very likely that this person was correct in how I would have handled things. Looking back to last April when I came into the knowledge of the Father and Son I can see that God has really done some miracle working on my character. I am just amazed at how much more humble He has made me along with wisdom on how to share and handle issues with others. My approach to the scriptures is much more mindful and watchful that I am not spiritualising/adding anything. It seems like I'm catching myself wanting to know why do I believe this or say that? "Who told you" is what often comes to my mind when I wonder where I got this belief or that. Was it the spirits of demons or the Word of God? It's hard to explain the change that has taken place but its like Jesus said "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Even with the recognized change in character I realize this is only the beginning as I haven't seen nothing yet when it comes to trials. I can honestly say though that I am excited to have future trials come my way and have my Father in Heaven say this is my beloved son in whom I'm well pleased. This will all be possible because "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." Our greatest trial is to love our brother no matter what and I pray that through the Spirit of Christ we are all able to establish the law and be found without spot or blemish at Christ's soon coming. Amen.
