* Like your diet - your relationship with God must be a permanent life changing event.
The true condition of your heart (soul) determines how you act!
Many people attempt to change their actions without changing their hearts. Unless you come to make the necessary changes to get it right in your life - you will continue to spin out in life!
Change your efforts so that your efforts help to make for a true and honest person!
Then you will enjoy what The Lord God wants from us. He wants to change your heart and then your actions will follow as a by product!
Actions are not the driving force - they must follow. Right actions are a by-product of an intimate relationship with God!
Therefore don't just try to act godly; because all that can do is please some people of your religious beliefs or maybe score points with certain people - but it fails to impress God! He looks at your heart!
It does not matter that you are doing the right things. You can give all you have to the poor, or even dies a martyr's death - but if you are not motivated by The Lord God's kind of Agape Love - it will profit you nothing!
You must come to do things with clean hands and a pure heart!
1 Corinthians 13:3-11 (NIV)
3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[a] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
i.e. You must change your life style!
