Reflections Of What We Hope To Become...


Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Reflection in the mirror or in the past days or season's of our lives...

It is a good thing to look at one's self in the mirror of how others.
May perceive you, not that we should pay too much attention to what
Others think of us. But rather what does the mirror reflect?

Sometimes I do this and wonder, have I built bridge's that will
Support the weight of strenuous times that is always possible in our lives.

We must learn and grow from our past mistakes;
We can learn by seeing how we responded to stress.
And I can assure you that not all stress is bad.
It is usually a feeling of we must preform!

We do have an obligation to practice what position we are in!

Firstly, we are in Christ Jesus
So because of this position we will be required to pass
certain test and trials...

But as we reflect and read and respond to the truth
(Available in The Holy Bible)

We will change, and your position may look differently.

Have you ever believed something so strongly that you might,
Be what we would call dogmatic about it?
To only find after a decade or century you had a different opinion!

Dogmatic
1.
Relating to or of the nature of a dogma or dogmas or any strong set of principles concerning faith, morals, etc., as those laid down by a church; doctrinal:
We hear dogmatic arguments from both sides of the political spectrum.
2.
Asserting opinions in a doctrinaire or arrogant manner; opinionated:
I refuse to argue with someone so dogmatic that he won't listen to reason

I am going to say this, opinion and truth are not the same!

I do not think there was a new truth, but rather a clearer understanding...

So, As I age and grow I ask the Lord to help me be discerning.

Do not be so naive to believe everything you are being taught!
In the churches 
In the schools
In the universities
In the Seminaries
In the New York Best Seller Books List
In the Christian bookstores
In the newspapers

Do your homework...
Check out the facts, historical and biblically.
Google can actually find some very sound and outstanding
Information and direct you to some very good resources.
Just because it's on the internet does not make it true.

But we can ask for wisdom and we can ask for the truth!
We can dig and ponder and pray and not be deceived!

I love the scripture that says be convinced in your own mind...
Just because everyone is doing it does not make it right!

Does it even really make a difference it what we believe?

Be willing to be teachable...
Be like the Berean's!


Acts 17: 11 Now the Berean Jew were of more Noble Character than...
Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day ...

If anyone calls you a Berean it is a high compliment!

Roxy,
I too find that as I study God's word I find that my thoughts have changed. Not because I am wishy-washy but because truth is found there not in the world and I can study to reject the culture and be transformed in Christ.

Hi Roxy, another wise lesson here in your post. I find that as I learn more and gather truths, my thoughts and opinions change. We can't find our answers without enough information.
Thanks for sharing and always inspiring our Christian walk.

Oh I like that...opinion and truth are not the same. So much more polite than "I don't care what you think. What does The Word say?" My expression is "Just because you think it doesn't make it so." Good post, Roxy! You always make me think.
