The first thing that I noticed as a new Christian was that the Christian Community, in any church, can be divided into a great number of categories depending, greatly, on your point of view. Now, here I am, better than twenty years later and all of these divisions are still present, inside the church. The really disturbing part of the problem, after all of this time, is that there are two major categories that just will not seem to merge. On the one hand there are the people like myself, wife and daughter that have understood what Jesus (Matt. 5:48) and Paul (Eph. 4:23-24) taught. It is our desire to help people by teaching them that they might live a Holy Life, separated to the service of our LORD. (1 Thes. 4:7) On the other hand there are the perpetually hopeless and the only reason they can be labeled thus is because they have decided not to try. More than once I have been told that, the person speaking, can't be holy like me. As a recruit I knew nothing of what I had enlisted myself into when I enlisted into military service but I buckled down and I learned what was expected of me and I did well. Living the Holy Life that God wants from us is an impossible thing for us to accomplish but the answer to the problem is so simple that folks just reject it without even considering it. God has promised us that He will never give us more than we can endure and the problem here is that people want to apply this to their trials and tribulations but not to their daily lives. If a man or a woman has it in their heart, not their mind, to follow God and they pray a Salvation Prayer they are, right then, indwelt with the Holy Spirit. (Eph. 1:13) It is at this point that, for understanding, we should read the parable of the Wedding Feast found in Matthew 22. Verse two explains to us that this parable is a picture of Heaven, given to us in terms we can relate to. Any Christian knows that there will be no unsaved person in Heaven so we'll leave that right there. However the parable gives us a picture of the Bride of Christ and then there are the guests. The Spirit has taught me that not every man in Heaven is a member of the Bride. Now we need to understand that everyone of us was indwelt by the Holy Spirit but not all fully submit to His leading. When I was a new soldier I paid close attention to my Drill Instructor that I might learn the lessons I needed to survive the deadly business I had freely opted to engage in. On the other side of that coin, my life, I was led by the Spirit of God to begin a Bible study that has never ended. Others, saved or not, I do not know, do not listen to the urgings of the Holy Spirit and because they harden their hearts and then they find the communication with God to be a mystery. To live this life that God has called us to live we must do exactly what every soldier learns in his Basic Training, we must listen to and obey our Leader. Just as I promised, the answer is simple. God bless.
