Tonight we had Bible Study. And, it's pretty much the most freaking amazing Bible Study EVER! We were talking about salvation and our process of salvation. There is the moment of salvation, when we say the prayer and repent for our sins, and there is the process of salvation we go through during our entire lives.
When we are saved we experience the goodness and kindness of the Lord. We realize, at the same time, His severity and His love. The consequences of our sin is eternal separation from Him: hell. Yet, we realize that because of His great love for us He sent Jesus to die for us. He paid the price for our sins and made a way for us to spend eternity with Him. And, to live a victorious Christian life.
Because of that taste of His goodness at salvation it puts and hunger in us for more of Him. The lukewarmness I talked about before is the people who experienced God's goodness of salvation, yet they rarely or never experience it again, for whatever reason. Most people don't because they're never taught or trained how. They're like orphans who are left to figure out how to be Christians on their own. As we see in the Bible, each Christian is supposed to be taught and trained how to walk in relationship with God. Unfortunately you see this so rarely. Most Christians probably don't know that you can experience God's presence and love every.single.day. Or, if they do they don't know how to attain it and walk in it.
