PRO FORMA

The term pro forma is a Latin term meaning to satisfy the minimum requirements or to conform to a convention or doctrine.

There is a position that can be taken by confessing Christians called ekeing it out. It could be called “Barely getting in.” If I can just get inside the gate, mentality.

This idea of how much can I get away with it, and still make it into heaven? is an idea thought up in the realm of Satan. He expects it to be the philosophy that many will buy into. The, I don’t care so much for the rewards thing I just want to “make it in” attitude.

In football you often hear that the game is a game of inches. Sometime they miss a first down by a half inch, and games have been lost by just that much.

To miss heaven by “an inch” would be a tragic mistake. Peter preached a sermon and the people listened and the following was of record. When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?"

Toys of the senses and soulical foolishness are things that must be put away in order for an entrance into the joys of the Lord to be guaranteed.

Romans 13:12-14 The night is almost over, and the day is near. Let us therefore put aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as people who live in the light of day. No wild parties, drunkenness, sexual immorality, promiscuity, rivalry, or jealousy! Instead, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not obey your flesh and its desires.

There you have it in a nut shell, it couldn’t be much plainer.

It is possible to be dressed down, not fit for the occasion, engaging in the “sluff off” lifestyle, but the scripture sees a lot differently;

Ephesians 6 tells us what to wear and how to order our conduct. Having done this there will be no question as to your future. The last line of Eph.6 is a good one; May grace be with all who love the Lord Jesus Christ with sincerity!
I hope those who read this can say AMEN, instead of “OH ME,” and like the Eunuch in the book of Acts go your ways rejoicing.

“And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and he went on his way rejoicing.”
