Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth (Part IV)

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth (Part IV)

Holy:

Once a young man asked a following question to an old man who have seen and knew Lord face to face, “Brother I am not at all committing sins and I am holy. But I haven’t seen Jesus until now, why? For this he replied, “Son, Bible says “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Mathew 5:8; Hebrews 12:14). But this holiness can be achieved by a person only through his love over Jesus Christ. People are oppressing their body to keep them away from sin. They bind themselves after the commandments and doctrines of men such as Touch not; taste not; handle not. They try to control their heart by doing show of wisdom in will worship, and humility. These are the people who fight with sin by their own strength. Also they proclaim themselves as a Saint (or) Holy one. Because make themselves Holy. And he asked young man now tell me What is your Holiness? the young man heard who heard it went away sorrowful (II Corinthians 10:3; Colossians 2:20-23)

Flames of Love:

Beloved young brothers! When the Holy Spirit shed abroad the love of Jesus Christ who shed His blood for us (Romans 5:5), His love will start to burn in our hearts like the coals thereof are coals of fire, and as a most vehement flame (Songs of Solomon 8:6) and a zeal will rise in our heart that “Even if I will be put to death I sin not” (Daniel 3:18). This love will only open our eyes to see Lord Jesus Christ (Daniel 3:25)

“He that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” (John 14:21)

One who is filled his heart with this flame of love is the Holy one (Mathew 5:8). Only they will see Lord. Friend! You too, always be filled with Holy Spirit. Let the Love of God overflow in you. Then with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory (II Corinthians 3:18) will fulfill in you.

This is the age to bear the yoke:

“It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth” (Lamentations 3:27)

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me….. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Mathew 11: 29, 30)

Young man! How good it is for you to bear the yoke of Jesus Christ and to learn from Him! This yoke is not the one with sufferings and shame as some people says. This is the yoke of Power. It is the yoke which reconciles you with the Lord!

Paul in his youth carried the Lord Jesus Christ who is nailed to the Cross as per above said (Ephesians 2:16; I Corinthians 1:18), “Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body” (II Corinthians 4:10).
