Having The Mind Of God

 1 Corinthians 10:13  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. No Christian is perfect as we go through this life you will sometimes give in to those feelings and will sin in the flesh (but not in your heart). However when you love someone you will not want to hurt the one you love and you will allow the Spirit to kill that thing that is controlling your mind in your fleshly members. "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."(1 John 1:8 KJV)"My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous :"(1 John 2:1 KJV) He calls us little children because we at this time in this Christian walk cannot not be a fiend of God if we continue in sin. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: This is telling you and we are to be in the likeness of Jesus however we are not perfect as he was so there are going to be some bumps and scraps along this journey however we have to have the mindset and the maturity to know better and the difference between what sin is and what is not sin. What pleases God that you love and what does not please him. We can never lose our salivation by committing the unpardonable sin or the fact that we stubble and fall at times. A righteous man fall seven times but he get back up again.  However God knows our heart and he convicts the sinner so that we can grow into the mature stage and now he calls us friends. I am a friend of God. How about you. But if you did not get there yet there is hope and faith in knowing that God is still working on us. Perfecting us into the image of his Son. When he looks at us, he no longer sees us but his only begotten Son Jesus Christ.
