Our Problem With Holiness

IT IS a law of our mind that we can never feel obligated to do what we think is impossible to be done.

We will never feel an obligation to be what we believe it is impossible for us to be.

And there lies our problem with Holiness. Our human mind says, 'it is impossible for me to be Holy'. 

Therefore we are going to have to do some work on ourselves if we are to respond to Gods command, ' you be Holy as I am Holy '.

Gods word is in full agreement with our human mind;

(1Cor 2v14) But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

(Rom 8v7) For the mind of the flesh, the human mind, is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to Gods law, indeed it cannot.

So we have it clearly there that our human mind, the mind of the body, on its own, does not accept the things of God. Those who live only in their humanity cannot please God(Rom 8v8)

Then Paul teaches us something new. Speaking to Christians, he says,' 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'.(Rom 8v9,10)

Paul then goes on to say that Christians are free from living only by their human mind, the mind that does not agree with God or understand the things of God.(Rom8v12-13)

The new Testament tells us that Christians have an addition to their minds which enables us to understand the things of God, to learn from Gods word, and to change ourselves into Spiritual people who agree with God and receive His (impossible) instructions.

The addition to our minds is called, 'the Spirit of our mind'. It is found in Ephesians 4v23; 'and be renewed in the Spirit of your mind'.

Our problem with Holiness disappears when we reject the voice of the human mind and tap into the Spirit of our mind, letting the word of God reducate us, and letting God teach us through our personal relationship with HIm.
