Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness (sanctification), and the end everlasting life.As we are set apart we become more and more adept in our what we can do for Him. As we go to the Word and find out about this right, we grow away from sin and we are less burdened down by the things that can so easily detract us from the most enjoyable work on earth. Not only here in this life but in the future, we have the hope of Jesus Christ's return and eternal life!
Does that mean we hide out and 'tsk tsk' the world. We are 'in' this world, but we are not 'of' this world. We live life without the 'of' things like fear, condemnation, unworthiness, lack of confidence, and the big one - insecurity (drum roll please). These things we don't have to partake in. We definitely will have better relationships even with people who don't care about God. We fully claim our rights as sons of God and say 'absolutely not' to the awful things and move towards the 'aweful' and exciting things that go with a sufficient and rewarding life of being one of God's kids. The more we see our lives reflected in the church epistles, the more sanctified (not sanctimonious) we will be in our walk.
Let's face it, not many of us have seen a burning bush, not to mention one that talks to you. But we may have seen the Word alive in a sanctified believing person. Since the day of Pentecost, God doesn't need to burn up bushes any more. He set 12 men on fire and they in turn set more on fire by showing and teaching them the Word. What a privilege and it is ours today!
