God at work
1 Thessalonians 2:4 But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts
Most of us want approval from God. But how do I attain this approval? 1st off, what are you saying? What we speak comes from the abundance of our hearts! What pleases God is a person who has received His Son Jesus Christ as Their Lord and Savior. You not only heard the gospel, you received it personally. You cherish the gospel. You are trustworthy in holding unto its principles. How do you know your trustworthy? You allow God to test or examine your heart! Open up to Him. Allow Him to strengthen or cut away some areas in your life. I have yet to meet a christian who is not a work in progress! None of us have completley surrendered everything over to Him at conversion. We are justified at the point of being bornagain but sanctification takes a lifetime.
