The Ghetto State of Mind

                     The Ghetto State of Mind  The Ghetto state of mind is an intriguing concept. In my hometown this mind set is on an upscale. It has always been there but in the last 5 years its grown rampantly like wildfire. The ghetto state of mind comes in all colors and nationalities. You can identify it by how someone carries themselves and by their words and actions and how they treat others.   Let us explore this unaesthetic mind set.  This mind set is at one of the lowest mindsets. In this mindset the person always has to be right, always gets their way. Putting their needs first is always on their agenda. Some examples are screaming and honking at an elderly to cross the street as opposed to a more noble mindset of going out of your way to help an elderly person cross the street. This mindset is also displayed by not letting people merge on the highway knowing that now they will now have to exit. In some states not merging is against the law but it is just human decency tha

Single Christians and the Highway To Holiness

                      Single Christians & The Highway to Holiness

          Sometimes it can be difficult navigating the single world for Christians. I will be focusing on Sexual Immorality in this blog. When it comes to being pure in dating relationship their can be some confusion.

          The bible warns against fornication. Fornication is having sexual relations with someone that you are not married to. I have met Christians that have different ideas of what it means to be pure before God as a Single Christian. 


        Different Christian books sometimes give guidelines like not touching any area that is in the Bikini area. Every book seems to give a different answer. I had someone tell me What can we get away with? I was really taken back by that response because it opened my eyes to what was really going on and what really matters. I realized its not about the legalistic guidelines or seeing how far you can go? It is about your heart. Your heart motives. Is your heart filled with Lust? It is you will want to push the boundaries as far as they can go.  Your purity should be a heart matter and if you gave your live to Jesus your heart belongs to him and should be guided by the daily renewal of reading the word of God. If you are close to God, the Holy Spirit will be  guiding you how to be Holy and will convict you if your getting into sin. If you are not close to God and rarely read the word of God do not expect to be convicted. 

                       We do not have to be legalistic when it comes to sexual purity. We do have to be making sure we are constantly walking in the spirit so we can have wisdom and discernment. We want to strive for Holiness. It says in the Bible, But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. Ephesians 5:3. Think about that, not even a hint.  That is what we need to strive for.  So let us do the opposite, instead of seeing what you can get away with, see how you can have not even a Hint of sexual immorality.  

      We are living in the last days, we need to be holy and pure and set on the things of God instead of the flesh. We should not be acting like the world according to it's fleshy desires. We are set apart to think and act differently from the world and to have different standards.

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 1 Corinthians 6:13

If Sexual immorality starts knocking at the door, let us flee it like Joseph. We know if we are walking in the Spirit we will have the fruits of the Spirit. If we are walking in Flesh and Sin there will also be signs that you are walking in the Sinful man

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galations 5_19

In this verse it says fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of God.

           In these last days, let us not walk like the people of the dark but let us walk as people of the Light. Let us mot even be found to have a hint of sexual immorality. 
      I sometimes think in pictures and I had a Picture image to help ground Purity in your mind.

                        When you are a single person dating you start walking with them on this dirt path. Your goal is to try to get to the Kingdom of God towards Jerusalem. This is your goal but it does not mean that the person your dating wants this goal even if they say so. If you walking with someone filled with lust you dirt path is going to start to have a lot of weeds growing around. As this person pushes their passions on you, the weeds start flourishing and start growing very rapidly. They will start entangling your feet and you will get off the path you were on.

When your mind is Set on Lust you start walking towards the forest of Sexual Immorality and depravity. You lustful date started by taking one little step off the path you were on and it didn't seem that bad. With each little step you got on the weeded Lust path headed in the opposite direction to the Forest of the Lost souls

. Some people that end up this forest stay lost forever and can never find their way out.If you found out you ended up in this dreadful place no despair. Try to pull the weeds out as soon as you can, flee! Flee before they entangle your feet! It it is too late and you are trapped call out to God the one that can save you and get you out of there. Let that sin FADE.
Let it Fade Jeremy Camp

     Who you really should be wanting to date is someone that truly has the destination of Zion sets in their hearts and they will display the fruits of the Spirit instead of the works of the flesh. When you walk with this Believer and Lover of God they will do everything to want to wash you with the Word instead of trying to taint you with sin. You will will both walk towards that holy city. The sights are beautiful and leveled. The smell of the flowers around smell delightful. Even if one of you may fall for we are not in perfection yet, the other person will help you get back up. Even though the path is more peaceful and does not have weeds every where there will be some wild animals and deceptive guides along the path. To combat these battles along the way, we will make sure we bring our Water that represent the Word of God. Everyday we will consume this Living water. We will drink it to give us wisdom to overcome the enemies schemes, Instead of talking in lustful conversations we will encourage each other with scriptures and hymns and Spiritual songs to make each other stronger to get to our goal destination. 

 Encourage each other with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord. 20 Always give thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:19-20

    We will walk hand in hand, walking in the Spirit together. Walking on the path towards the glorious city. Soon we will get closer and we will be filled with complete Joy and Peace when we finally find the Highway of Holiness. 

   Let us be careful who we date and make sure they really want to go to Highway of Holiness instead of the Lustful Forest of lost souls.
