If you’re not there you won’t understand. If you’re not trying to get there you won’t understand. If a person has given their life to Christ and are no longer in the world they aren’t the same. Many individuals claim it, however the truth is seen through their walk.
People don’t understand when you grow you don’t see things the same. What once worried you or even got on your nerves no longer fazes you. It is called growth! You know the importance of life, you understand your needs versus your wants, and you don’t carry the weight of the world on your shoulders any longer. You understand once you lay your burdens at the feet of Jesus you don’t go back to pick them burdens up again. You “cast all of your cares on Him.”
There are people who will think you have become cold and unconcerned. That isn’t the case, you simply have the understanding of what is and what isn’t important. Don’t be fazed by what people say about you, because they will talk no matter what. We certainly aren’t greater than Jesus! Not only did they talk about Him, they persecuted, beat, lied on, scorned, and crucified Him. If they did it to Him, someone who knew no sin; they will do it to us for sure. Stay encouraged and keep on the full armor of God. Sooner or later they will find someone or something else to talk about.
Remember a truth Saint is not their own person. They belong to Jesus Christ! When you’re a child of the King, nothing looks or feels the same. That’s just how it is. You will still go through trials and tribulations, but how you see them and go through them will be different.
There are a lot of people still thinking, feeling, and doing the same things they have always done. As a true Saint you shouldn’t be the same even if you’re going through similar trials and tribulations. Your outlook on things should be different. If you’re still worrying, being bothered, or trying to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders something is wrong!
A lot of people are trying to please others by continuing to do what they once did or by trying to do what others do. This isn’t the walk of a true Saint. You can’t be a person who is neutral for there is no neutrality in this walk. Being neutral means you don’t want to take responsibility. To be a true Saint means you take total ownership and responsibility of how you live. Your mind and heart is on Jesus. It means you do things pleasing to Jesus and God, NOT man.
People of the world are doing any and everything. The ways of the world are getting worse day by day. Although it is alarming you don’t fear, because you’re not a part of the madness. Your faith and trust lies in God Almighty, not man. You learn not to fear for God is with you through it all! You should feel at peace. People don’t understand it, but they don’t have to!
The more a person follow Jesus, the more change will occur. When a person is sincere about their journey they will turn away from all of the other things they once did. They do not partake in anything the devil will try to throw at them. They know satan when he rears his ugly head! They learn to resist the devil; therefore they are resisting temptations coming their way. All of it is possible when you make Jesus your choice.
