Once again, we gathered in the Batt Cave family room for our Bible Fellowship. Even though it is officially fall, and the days are getting shorter, the Batt Cave is full of sunshine. Irma trimmed our trees and exposed more of our yard to light. Our average temperatures are still in the low 90’s, which means, we have hot days and hot Bible on Thursday evenings.
What came to light, in our sharing of sanctification notes, is that we are set apart by God from non-believers by being and conducting ourselves as saints.
Set apart by God – hagios – G40, as stated in Ephesians 1:4; Romans 12:1
Become holy – hagiosune – G42, from Romans 1:4; and 1 Thes 3:13
Behave as saints – hagiasmos G38, see Romans 6:19; 1 Thes 4:7; 1 Corinthians 1:30
As God’s chosen ones, his saints, we are separated from the world by our believing, the Christ in you, holy spirit. Our job, as a saint, is to bring light to others so that they may make a free will choice to believe. We may not always be loved by those who live in the physical world, in fact they may hate us. We have jobs to do as sons and daughters of God. What sets us apart? We believe and act on the Word of God. We stay thankful. We nurture our spiritual walk.
Join us next week for a meal, song, and time in the Word. Bless you.
