Let us courageously, powerfully, and godly live to the fullest the lives Father God has allowed us to have at such a time as this. That is the best way we can thank Him for letting us see 2018.
Like the penetrating precision that surgeons make with their scalpels, Father God does the same thing with His Word. Not only does His Word cut but also it heals, after cutting along the dividing line between the soul and spirit—between human beings’ innermost parts.
Glorification is sanctification’s final stage—perfected souls and spirits in bodies that are completely free of sin. Glorified bodies are given to every saint who has overcome the world by developing a holy, righteous, and Christ-like spiritual lifestyle.
God the Father is a spiritual and godly Being. As a Spirit, He is spiritual because He is wholly sanctified, which means He is perfect and complete—He has NO spot or blemish, and there is nothing broken, and nothing missing or lacking in Him. God is godly because He embodies the following characteristics: holiness, righteousness, mercy, grace, love, kindness, gentleness, discipline, and so forth. Therefore, since God is spiritual and godly, then anyone who calls him or herself a Christian believer also must be both godly AND spiritual!
