e OS Part 2: A New Code

 

God is a Master builder and PROGRAMMER.

 

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”

 

God’s code for the Life OS is TRUTH and LOVE. (John 14:6; 1John 4:8 & 3:18; 1Corinthians 13:6; Ephesians 4:15; 2Thessalonians 2:10; 1Peter 1:22)

 

2John 1:3 Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.

 

There are some common APPS to life, but they operate differently producing different results.

 

The BEST experience in life is found in the Life OS.

 

2Peter 1:3-4  3 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

 

CORRUPTION – to be spoiled, broken, damaged, ruined, destroyed.

 

We PARTICIPATE in the divine nature through our KNOWLEDGE of Him and His Promises.

 

There is a regular UPDATE that God wants to do to your OS, Apps, and Drivers through prayer, Bible reading, meditation, community learning, and serving. (Deuteronomy 31:12; Joshua 1:8; Matthew 4:4; 7:24-27; Colossians 4:2; 1Thessalonians 5:17; 1Timothy 4:13; Titus 3:14; Hebrews 10:23-25; James 1:21)

 

Romans 12:2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

 

2Corinthians 3:16-18 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

 

Transformation comes through the COOPERATIVE work of the Spirit and you.
