“What is your Perception”

John 15:19, I John 2:15-17, I John 2: 8-11, Romans 12:1-3, I John 3: 1-2

What is your perception of the World? God created the world and everything in it. It is okay to enjoy things in this world. However when those things begin to overcome your spiritual life it becomes sinful. If you are saved by Christ you are not of the world. You cannot become worldly instead of Christ like or covet worldly things more than your savior.

What is your perception of other people? You cannot judge someone because of look like or sound like, tattoos, piercings, what they do, or what they have done in the past. God measures a man by what’s on the inside of someone’s heart.

What is your perception of your self? You should make an attempt to place everyone else above yourself. If you start to think of yourself better than someone else, your perception of everything else is flawed. God Loves us all the same no matter how awesome you thnk you are.

What is your peception of God? Do you picture God as a judgmental God, waiting up in the clouds with a lightning bolt waiting for you to mess up. Your perception of God should be this… God is Love. He loves you so much he gave his only son’s life for you. He is looking for reasons to bless you, not punish you.
