The power of choice is mine, and its consequences cannot belong to others.
It is not fair to make bad choices and blame others for the bad consequences.
God gave us the power to choose good or evil, to obey or disobey.
Nobody is perfect, but obedient people pursue perfection. These are the people that the Spirit of God seeks to serve Him.
Integrity and righteousness, fear of God, and fleeing from sin have been virtues found in the character of those who exude the good perfume of the Lord Jesus.
1 – Integrity and righteousness: has to do with the way you treat others. It’s not just about being honest, but also not wanting for others what you don’t want for yourself. (Matthew 19.19)
2 – Fear of God: has to do with being faithful to God. (Malachi 3.8)
3 – Fleeing from evil: escape from all forms of sin or unrighteousness. (Job 1.1)
What’s the use of doing the Work of God, and having a bad character? Before God, a bad character is like having bad breath. Unbearable.
If the Work of God consists of destroying the work of the devil, how can you destroy the works of the devil when you’re living in partnership with him?
It is better to be or exude the good perfume of the Lord Jesus Christ than to make perfume.
