IT IS FINISHED!
So then those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ he is not his. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Romans 8:8-10
Jesus came to bring life and that life is the light of the world able to be seen by people who observe our lives. We don't have to guess who is saved and who isn't because the light of Jesus shines out of them.
If you are born again you can tell if someone is your spiritual brother or sister because your spirit bears witness that they are children of God. The Holy Spirit in us is a beacon that shines out of our spirit just like a lighthouse does, warning ships of the perils of the sea, so also we are a light to the world, warning of the dangers that would destroy them, calling them to be saved.
Are you shining the light of Jesus to a lost and dying world sinking into deep darkness, or are you hiding your light? Now is the time as we approach the end of all things to shine brightly so that the multitudes can see and find safe harbor in Christ for their souls!
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our Spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. Romans 8:16,17
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
