Perfecting holiness in the fear of God

Perfecting holiness in the fear of God(2Co.7 1,2) "Therefore, beloved, since we have these promises, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Receive us: we wronged no one, we have corrupted no one, we have cheated anybody. "
The offense is like a virus, contaminating their loyalty and their purpose in God. Do not let the devil steal the Word received to develop the vision of the ministry. That is the source of hope.Start working on the church with joy and enthusiasm, keeping a good attitude and a positive outlook. An Overview apostolic.
1. A statement of purpose and principles with excellent results.2. Healthy relationships.3. Prevent viruses or bacteria causing infection and growth stops.4. Prevent contamination of good health and produce fatigue, tiredness, frustration.Something that pollutes: the offense. This can destroy you.
A Bible story illustrates the devastating impact of the offense: the story of Ahithophel"And the advice Ahithophel gave in those days, was as if they inquired at the oracle of God. That was all the counsel of Ahithophel both with David and with Absalom. "(2 Samuel 16:23)
Ahithophel was renowned for his wisdom. But when Absalom rebels against his father, King David, so does Ahithophel and Absalom joins. Ahithophel had wisdom to advise, but not practiced.
Absalom was infected with the contamination of the offense, because David did something against Ammon, who abused Tamar. Then gave rise to resentment, bitterness and offense. Even though David was wrong, he had no right to rebel and be influential with people of David also were lifted in rebellion.Ahithophel advised Absalom to attack David and his people.
Why? Because it gave rise to the offense. Hushai, who was loyal to David, Absalom told him not to. The delay caused a feeling of rejection in Ahithophel.
"And Ahitopel, seeing that he had put his counsel, saddled his ass, and arose, and went to his home to his city, and after having about your house, hanged himself, and died, and was buried in the tomb of his father. "(2 Samuel 17:23)
Ahithophel realized he was on the wrong side, would have to face the shame and disgrace of frustration and preferred to die.
And what was the root of the offense? Ahithophel was the grandfather of Bathsheba. David committed adultery with her and Uriah killed. This had consequences for the family. Offended by what David had done, Ahithophel served for two years as the result of the offense saved. Inside was an infection that ended destroying.
What can we learn from this story?:
1. We must guard ourselves from the offense. It is dangerous and other contaminates. It hurts and hurts those around us. Be "reasonable" or not is not an offense keep healthy. Sometimes it manifests as "passive" and other aggressively. But always destroys.
2. "Our advice or teachings are not always accepted." This caused a destructive impact on the interior of Ahithophel.
That does not mean someone will hear it will obey. What do we do? Offended?? No! We should focus on those who choose loyalty, success.
To function as a healthy body is important to maintain respect and collaboration, help and support. Although with a decision we disagree.
The offense is a dangerous tool of the enemy.
