GONNA LET YO LIGHT SHINE?

New Living Translation (©2007)
As they approached, Jesus said, "Now here is a genuine son of Israel -- a man of complete integrity." (Without guile).

English Revised Version
”Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.”

Matthew Henry quote: “Sin is the cause of our misery; but the true believer's transgressions of the Divine law are all forgiven, being covered with the atonement. Christ bare the sins of the believer, therefore they are not imputed to him. The righteousness of Christ has been reckoned to us, and we being made the righteousness of God in Him. Our iniquity is not imputed, God having laid upon Jesus the iniquity of us all, and made Him to be a sin-offering for us. Not to impute sin, is God's act, for he is the Judge. It is God that justifies. Notice the character of him whose sins are pardoned; he is sincere, and seeks sanctification by the power of the Holy Ghost. He does not profess to repent, with an intention to indulge in sin, because the Lord is ready to forgive. He will not abuse the doctrine of free grace. And to the man whose iniquity is forgiven, all manner of blessings are promised,”

There is nothing you can do to improve GOD’S salvation; it is full, meaning it is all encompassing, meeting all of GOD’S requirements. It is free, it costs you nothing. Your service, tithing, praying, and praising, none of these things can improve GOD’S salvation. The only thing man had to do with salvation was when Christ became the God/man, (the hypostatic union.) Jesus was born, created a man who was sinless and remained sinless through out his tenure on earth.

The goal for every Christian, (as difficult as it may be,) is to be that man or woman who is guileless in GOD’S sight. This means to have no ulterior motive in our service for GOD.

I have seen men (with guile) for their own benefit, take advantage of people who are being moved upon by the Holy Spirit. They care not that GOD sees and knows what is in their heart.

Each day we face issues that will surely test our resolve, but if each morning we put on the armor of guilelessness, the darts of adversity will fall short of their objective.

What could be better than for Jesus to say about you than; behold here is my child in which there is no guile.
