But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God (Romans 2:28-29) To be a Jew meant you were in God’s family, an heir to all His promises. The Jews was God’s chosen and all other nationalities were considered as Gentiles (uncircumcised), but Jesus came and adopted us into the family of God, circumcising our hearts. God’s desire for His people is to be circumcised in our hearts and not the outward appearance or religious acts. To be in the family of God means more than attending church, working in different auxiliaries, but there must be a spiritual change in our spirit and in our hearts. Jesus, the Son of God comes and resides in our hearts and makes us spiritual Jews. As Christians we’re adopted in the family of God through Jesus our Savior. Every promise that has been written in God’s Word is for every Christian that has submitted themselves to God and His Son. What we need is in God’s Word, every Word of God is true, what He promised that He will do. In order for us to be receivers of the blessings, we must submit ourselves to the Word of God. The majority of the people you would ask if they are Christians would say yes, but still practice sin on a daily basis. We must be transformed in our spirit and in our hearts. There should be a difference from a Christian and an unbeliever, Christians don’t watch and participate in things that would bring a approach to their spirit or their belief. Christians should be Christ-like; we should be aware of the Spirit of God indwelling our human spirit, reverencing Him in what we say and what we do. When the Spirit of Christ is dwelling within our being, we don’t have the same desires we had when we were unbelievers. Our thinking changes, our behavior changes, our desires is to please our Father and not ourselves. We’re aware of how we conduct ourselves because we don’t want to be a hinderance to a new believer as well as the unbeliever’s faith in God. In order for us to see the move of God in us and in our churches, we as Christians must step it up in our dedication to God. Just as faithful as the Jews are to God, we must be just as faithful to the Father and the Son because you can’t accept God and reject the Son, and you can’t have the Son and reject the Father they are a team, they are one, but function in different roles. It was holiness from the beginning and God is still requiring holiness. We have been bought with a price, Jesus died for our sins, it would be senseless for Him to die for our sins if we were to continue in sin; that was the reason He died so that we could be reconcile to the Father; to live a life that would be pleasing in His sight. (But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, peculiar people, that ye should show for the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light – 1st Peter 2:9).
