Ultimate OS Part 3: The Apps

 

Jesus came to save the WHOLE person; Spirit, Soul, and Body.

 

1Thessalonians 5:23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

As the kernel represents the Spirit and the hardware represents the body, so the DRIVERS represent the Soul.

 

We all have the same Divine Life OS, but it will be expressed DIFFERENTLY.

 

We have different DRIVERS (Personality, Mental and Emotional composition, etc.) that enable the soft machine and Life OS to use the Apps.

 

Ephesians 4:22-24  22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds;24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

 

All drivers must be made NEW to be compatible with the new OS and engage the Apps properly. (Romans 12:1-2)

 

1Peter 1:14-16 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”

 

How we engage life will be OTHERWORLDLY.

 

The same God who said He is Holy, also said He is LOVE. (John 3:16; 1John 4:8)

 

1Corinthians 13:1-3 (NIV) 4-8a (AMPC) If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].

 

Everything boils down to one issue: LOVE; Every thought, attitude, motive, word, and deed is measured by love.

The OS of the Kingdom of God is LOVE. (John 13:35)

 

Mark 12:30-31 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.

 

The more you do it, the more FLUENT you get.
