The recognition and distribution of Gods love – Called
Called – The discovery of God’s love and the sharing of it. The calling of many. Work of the Gospel message. Planting of the seeds of salvation.
The Fear of God is the love of God – Justified
justified – Growing in love. Becoming rooted and grounded in God’s love, receiving Gods love by Faith into every aspect of your soul. Struggling under the fears of Gods judgment and the loss of His nearness because you love Him.
The hatred of Sin is the love of God – Sanctified
Sanctified – Loving God Back, The work of becoming pleasing in Gods site. Possible because of the freedom to mess up in doing so and the faith in his loving-kindness in keeping and directing you as you move in faith against what God hates. You being rooted fully in his love for you enables this work of salvation in you unto the ceasing from sin through the willingness to suffer in loving God Back.
First called to the reality of his love with joy, then the depths of his love into our sinful hearts in the fear of God because we love him and don’t want to let go of that love. Then His sanctifying truth into our minds in the readiness to suffer lay hold of the righteousness in Christ Jesus because we Hate the sin we once loved (AKA Choose to love Him back) by beginning to live the rest of our lives perusing of the Glory of God as a sanctified believer.
The outward expression of the inward presence of God – glorified
glorified – Here work out your salvation with fear and trembling takes on a new understanding when you consider glorification in this life. As Jesus was glorified as a man in this life we too are working out the Salvation of God within us to that end.
But such is the seldom seen and only occasionally heard of work of Glorification. The presence of God radiating off of us. You may have heard stories of holy men of God showing up and people just starting to weep. One I know is of a man of God intending to go and minister at another town and the glory of the Lord went before him and the whole town started showing up in the middle of the night at the police station confessing what they had done. The police diffident know what to do but heard of Him so went to the next town in the middle of the night to get the man. You may know it slightly through someone who you know that brings the presence of God with them when they show up. You see it worked out in the man Jesus fully in his transfiguration. Radiance stuff, power stuff things the bible holds out for us who believe but we can barely conceive of the faith to lay hold of it.
Without the recognition of Gods love there is no reason to Fear loosing it.
Without the receiving of Gods love by faith there is no reason to Hate sin and suffer against it.
Without the end of sin in ones life there is no beginning to the living the rest of it for His expressed Glory.
