Our Response

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
                                     James 1:21 (kjv)

Our response to the message of Christ's sacrifice for us, in faith results in the salvation of our spirit.

But, our walking out our daily faith is partcipation with all that God's grace has provided, revealed to us through His Word. This will result in the practical salvation of the soul.

Now, our bodies will be blessed and quickened (made alive through the application of the Word) through our souls. But only in the end will we receive new glorified (fully saved) bodies.

For now, after accepting Christ, Jesus as Lord and savior, our part is to walk out (manifest) the salvation of our souls. Glorifying God through the continual fruit of His Spirit produced by applying His grace to each part of our soul, that is our mind, our will and our emotions.

Our souls will only demonstrate His salvation of our souls when we apply His Word to our will, our mind and our emotions. If not, they will remain unsanctified and continue to exhibit the carnality of the world which defiles them and so strongly influences them when not subjected to the authority of God and the application of His Word.

So, we are responsible for the santcification of our mind, will and emotions throuh the learning of His Word and submission of each part of our soul to the authority and cleansing Word from above.

This is done by learning His Word, believing His Word, agreeing with His Word, speaking His Word and acting on His Word in each part of our soul.

Christ paid for the legal right for us to be born again spiritually and for our power through Him to sanctify all parts of the soul as a living sacrifice and a lving stone in the establishment of His kingdom on earth.

So, take His holiness, His power and His identity in you to manifest the redemption of your soul through which you will glorify Him and represent His kingdomin in the earth and to His whole creation.

Blessings are yours in Christ Jesus! Amen!

John
