Arrogance is Ignorance’s favorite mask. It allows all forms of delinquency and gives rise to tyranny of brutes standing behind the cloak of “intelligence”.

God’s law is the great teacher of sinful equality. It banishes arrogance enabling the most simple to learn of truth and love.

Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Ps 37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

The idea that we live as examples to the possibility of the connection with God in two different plains of existence eludes too many Christians. Spiritually, being a citizen of Heaven while pilgriming on this earth in bodies of earth, is key to the witness we are. David stated it clearly,

"12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. Ps 139;12"

With fear and trembling, I beg you to mold me into the image of Christ.  I want to shine brighter! 

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

As Christ was crucified, he was positioned between heaven and earth. He was connected to God with open arms to embrace the lost for which he was born to save. Let us, as living sacrifices, demonstrate the same. As we live eternally, always in touch with the creator, let us embrace the lost with open arms of self sacrifice that some hearts may trust because of our faith.
Ro 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.


The concept of crucifying the flesh appears lost on the modern "Christian" and that is the demise of "Christianity".

Thankfully, there are those among us, disciples of the crucified risen Savior, living the crucified life to His honor and glory.They are true witnesses of Christ. Jesus suffered, served, believed, and gave for the joy that saving man produces.
