Are we really content with Jesus doing all the heavy lifting?

Has apathy and Jesus did it all become the norm in a believers walk (crawl).

Has the pulpit taught us that it is sin to seek righteousness, i think it has. Everytime a discussion is brought up on ways to walk like Christ there is a flurry of Legalism arguments and we need do nothing... Jesus did it all...

How did we get so far from the truth?

Is it to late to renew our minds and to buy the gold that is tried in the fires of our own souls, that we might be rich, and to be clothed in white raiment that the shame of our nakedness will not appear?

godspeed,

freedom

Eph 4:21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:


Eph 4:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;


Eph 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;


Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.


Eph 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.


Eph 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:


Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.


It goes on to mention the various sinful attitudes that we are to shun...


I believe renriq02 was refering to my sig. line.... thoughts are seeds... but i could be mistaken...


godspeed,

freedom

When the Christ said, that as I do so can you and more, I don't think this is idle talk. The problem is most followers of the Christ have given to only one man that in which all are able and free to do.
