Our behavior should be like a flavour that keeps spreading to others, a fragrance of sweetness blooming to others!
When does that sweetness comes from us?
Through our lives and when we have salavation we can bloom!
Through our behaviors, then only this will change as a fragrance of beauty within us and to others
Change is important!
Ephesians 5:3 New International Version 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality,(A) or of any kind of impurity, or of greed,(B) because these are improper for God’s holy people
Even bad words shouldn't utter from our mouth because we are God's children made for his purpose
We have to live a correct life that Christ desires, surrendering to him, our behaviors, submitting our whole self to him is what he is expecting from us
The only we can glorify his name!
Psalm 37:23-24 New International Version 23 The Lord makes firm the steps(A) of the one who delights(B) in him; 24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,(C) for the Lord upholds(D) him with his hand 25 I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken(A) or their children begging(B) bread
What kind of behavior the God is expecting?
If we live the life the Christ desires we can expect nothing less from him be it anything!
Ephesians 4:3 New International Version 3 Make every effort to keep the unity(A) of the Spirit through the bond of peace.(B)
What kind of life should we have?
For everything we have to depend on him because he is the one who keeps promises and guides us in every minute of our life
We have to be obedient, surrender to him, not making our own decisions because our decisions are worldly and can't complete our life fully, if we depend on him he will make our lives a purposeful and make us righteous our ways
A fragrance that blooms the fragrance is what we have to live a life
There is so much rebellious and rebuking in us, will God accept us from all our transgressions
So what he is expecting through our behavior and life?
We are so sinners but with his love he cleansed and purified from all our sins
Let's surrender to him and move forward for the rest of the life in a will of God
When we are praising and worshipping our offerings should be like Godness should show purity of God in us
He loved us and made a fragrance of love to us. He died for us and crucified, remembering his love on cross and shed blood
Let's stop living flesh and worldly life
Let's live for him
Amos 5:21 New International Version 21 “I hate,(A) I despise your religious festivals;(B) your assemblies(C) are a stench to me
Amos 5:22-23 English Standard Version 22 (A)Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. 23 Take away from me the noise of your songs; to (B)the melody of your harps I will not listen
So if we keep on doing sin in our own ways and offer burnt offerings, grain offerings, peace offerings of fattened animals, songs of praise, melody of harps he will not accept, look upon them and listen them
Because we are not pure at hearts, no change in our spiritual life living far away from God and from his principles
No, God is not expecting this from us because we have to glorify him for all he has done
For his perpetual 'mercy'
Ephesians 5:1 New International Version 5 1 Follow God’s example,(A) therefore, as dearly loved children(B)
How to walk with God?
Following through the way he already lived and he set his life as an example for generations as a dearly loved children
