A woman before, and after, being redeemed

Before being redeemed, a woman will pray prayers in church, Bible study, and at the table.

After redemption, she will fervently pray in her "closet" at all times, not to be seen, or heard by man.

Before redemption, a woman can, and will build a great ministry to the Lord.

After redemption, that same woman will love her neighbor as herself.

Before redemption, a woman can, and will preach, and prophesy in the name of the Lord.

After redemption, that same woman will bear the burdens of first one, and then the next.

Before redemption, a woman can, and will cast out demons in the name of the Lord.

After redemption, that same woman will love the possessed, and serve them with gladness.

Before redemption, a woman will give her body to be burned.

After redemption, a woman daily yields her body as a living sacrifice to God.

Before redemption, a woman tries to be good.

After redemption, a woman is holy because of the very spirit of God living in her.

Scripture says that on the day of judgment, many will say that they did this and that, and did it all in the name of the Lord, and Jesus will say to them, "Depart from me for I never knew you."

See Matthew 7:21-23.

The many, who think that they are good to go, still do something in particular.

Jesus tells them what it is.

He is telling us the same thing.

He says that anyone who expends energy on sin will be told to leave his presence.

They will not see God.

Do you spend energy on sin?

Do you think that your sin, the stuff that you do, in your saved condition, is different than those who you would deem as unsaved?

Is sin ever classified differently in Scripture?

Is sin always the same no matter who does it?

If so, and if you still sin in your saved condition, then you are expending energy on sin.

What will Jesus say to you?

Do you think that the sin that you do is not seen by God?

If so, do you have a free pass?

If you think that you somehow do have a pass, then how would you explain that to a lost person?

Would you tell them that they can still sin after redemption?

What is the difference between you and a lost soul?

Anything?

Define it please.

And study to show that you are approved by God.

That is the order in Scripture.

Do you do that?

The redeemed woman will study, and the lost will not, for they will cover their sin, and stay "ignorant" as long as they can, and will great pretenders, for they still live in sin.

One cannot still live in sin, and be saved.

Why would a "saved" person still sin?

Scripture says that it is because of a love for sin (John 3:19).

The redeemed woman hates sin, and because of a hatred for sin, and not people, and because of a love for God, and everyone, she studies the Word, she knows her doctrine, and she serves.

Do you?

Are you redeemed?

Your actions tell on you.

Redeemed women are consistent because they abide in the Vine.

In abiding, they bear only good fruit (Matthew 7:18).

The unsaved woman will be kind, and then hateful, all to the same person, in one day's time.

The redeemed woman is always kind, long-suffering, patient, faithful, and gentle.

She does not lie, nor take the name of the Lord in vain, nor does she hoard.

She is a burden-bearer, and she fulfills the law because of what the Lord has done in her.

Does that define your life?

If not, then repent. Agree with God about your sin. You'll be washed in grace.

Or continue to love your sin, and at the judgment you will not see God.

There is an end to your life here on earth.

No woman knows when her time is done.

Seek the Lord.
