However, we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth, which is also called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2:13,14.
The glory of this world does not compare with the glory that the Lord has for us. The world is evil, so that each year increases violence, increases the lack of love of neighbor, increases the lies, take advantage, corruption, greed, or anything that does not pay, is in the world.
And the kingdom of heaven can not be compared because the world is all that's nice, neat, respectful, honest, clean, true, or what lies in the laws of the Old Testament written by Moses.
And how each of which are now in the Presence of God, each one of us is the temple of the Holy Spirit within each of us inhabits is pure, honest, clean, respectable, true, finally, the Spirit of Lord is not only capable of loving one's neighbor, but those who, without reason, hates us.
The Seal of God brings with it wisdom. With it we are exhorted to make and use reason in difficult times, in moments when we have to make important decisions and not act with emotion. Those who do not have the seal, are not capable of doing what pleases God. Both those who live far away from the Lord, act like it was normal for example, to disparage someone because that is what someone else is jealous.
Who has wisdom, does not. who have the Spirit of God, is not subject to being jealous. Himself exhorts us to be confident in him. Hand over your heart and life to the One who loves us really. He probes our hearts and knows what is best for us. Both that chooses us even before we were born. With us and when we need help, is there to help us. God is loving and justice. When we are chastened by the Holy Spirit, we are chastened with love and it's up to us to accept the reprimand or not. Being one who accepts it humbly.
When God chooses, He even trains. And in our walk with God, He shapes us and rebukes yes, when we are wrong. God is Father and has no child who has not had a reprimand. Until it is when we are admonished that we grow spiritually. So we become chosen. Think about it.
Stay strong with God.
