Nations Changers In Jesus Christ

Jesus Believers & Christians  Are His Kingdom & Nations Changers People!

 

( When They Live & Love The Jesus Christ Lifestyle )

 

Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Revealing The Truth Of God's Holy Word In His Love:

 

Live such good lives among the world and non-believers or sinners that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.

1 Peter 2:12

Here Peter says that these chosen people, these strangers, and soldiers should live such good lives that pagans will glorify God on the day he visits us.

 

The word good can also be translated “Light.” Apostle Peter says that Christians, even though they are being persecuted and mocked for their beliefs by unbelievers, should respond by demonstrating a Christ Believers Lifestyle, which will one day help these non-believers and sinners will glorify God on the day of visitation.

 

What does it mean when it says “they may glorify God on the day of visitation?” It means two things. It possibly is referring to the time of God’s judgment. They may not recognize the grace and mercy of the Believer’s life now, but one day, when God visits for judgment, the Love of the Believer’s life will be undeniable.  it means that the world glorifies God on the day Jesus accepts His very own bride. I have no doubt He is referring to this because He gives an example of this in the next chapter.Apostle Peter specifically talks about the situation of an unbeliever who gets saved while married to a Christ Believers wife or husband. Listen to what Apostle Paul says:

 

Wives, in the same way, be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.

1 Peter 3:1–2

 

Essentially, he cautions these Believing women against nagging, complaining, or even preaching at their unsaved husbands. He says they should win them without words by the reverence of their lives. By submitting to this man as the Church submits to Jesus Christ, who could be difficult and probably disrespectful about her faith or his...by loving him or her and serving him or her without a complaining heart, she could potentially win this man to Christ. Similarly, these Believers who were being persecuted for their faith were called to demonstrate beautiful lives even in an ungodly situation. Look what he tells them to do later in this same chapter describing this graceful lifestyle. He says they should respond like Christ.

 

To this, you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps, my brothers, and sisters. “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” When they hurled their insults at Him, He did not retaliate; when He suffered, He made no threats. Instead, Jesus entrusted Himself to God who judges justly.

1 Peter 2:21–23

When Christ was persecuted, He didn’t commit sin. He didn’t lie or become deceitful. When they insulted him, our blessed Savior did not retaliate. He didn’t make threats but instead entrusted himself to the just God.

 

Christ had a Godly life. Peter says one of the things that should make you different is your godly life. I believe the beauty of this life will shine especially when one is persecuted or accused wrongly ( 1 Peter 2:21-23 ). People should be able to tell you’re a Christian because of how you respond to persecution or mistreatment from the world. Look at what Christ said in Matthew 5:43–45, try to live with your awesome wife going on forty years this month according to God's will.

 

You have heard that it was said, “Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

 

Christ said to love our enemies and to pray for them that we may be sons and daughters of our Father in heaven. That result doesn’t make sense. Does a person become a child of God by loving his enemy? No, he is manifest as a child of God. He looks like his father who blesses and cares for those who curse him all the time.

 

Do you respond with cursing, anger, and complaining when unjust things happen to you? Or do you respond with a beautiful life, without complaining, without bitterness, humbling yourself, and entrusting your life to God who is just? This should mark the life of a believer. I have to remind myself of this at times when I’m tempted to respond in a negative way. No, We must live a Jesus Christ lifestyle according to His love, mercy, and grace. Jesus responded with a heavenly lifestyle, and we should as well.

 

In  My Conclusion Church

What are some characteristics that should mark the lives of Believers and separate them from the world?

 

Believers are a chosen people with many privileges. They are chosen by God to be royal priests, a holy people, a possession of God, and a people who have received mercy.

 

Believers are a people created just like their heavenly Creator God in Christ Jesus.

Believers are a people away from home Yes pilgrims who are waiting and seeking the kingdom of God.

Believers are a warring people fighting against the flesh.

Believers are a people with beautiful lives, especially when faced with persecution.

 The Lord Jesus Christ in The Holy Spirit is calling you to especially work on or restore your lives my loving spiritual family.
