Is BEING a Member of the Faithful REMNANT, about "turning INWARDS?", and focusing on, ones faults, flaws, and FAILINGS as 'a way of LIFE'?
The LESS you have, the MORE, the Most High TRUE God, can FULFILL you! And you NEED to understand, that BEING a Member of the Faithful REMNANT, IS about, "FACING, the UNCOMFORTABLE Truths", about oneself - and then FIXING them. It's NOT about "turning INWARDS", and focusing on, ones faults, flaws, and FAILINGS as a way of LIFE; BUT it is about 'being HONEST, WITH one's self' - THAT, one's SELF, is not PERFECT; but that one's SELF, needs to be OPEN, to LEARNING, and to RECEIVING instruction - in order to BETTER one's self.
"Not that I complain of want; for I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content."
When Saint PAUL spoke of 'being CONTENT, with whatever STATE, he was IN' - He was referring to 'not COMPLAINING, against, the Most High TRUE God', but EMBRACING! - the TRIALS, and the ADVERSITIES, along with the JOYS, of BEING, His True DISCIPLE.
But, the PROTESTANTS, have DISTORTED, that SCRIPTURE passage - to mean, "COMPLACENCY" - to SIMPLY 'be SATISIFIED with one's self' - and NO DESIRE to change... THEREFORE, let GO of the PRIDE - and EMBRACE "TRUE Humility" - instead. RECOGNIZE, that you DON'T HAVE, "ALL the answers"; and that you DON'T understand, 'EVERYTHING, that is being ASKED, OF you' - ALL the TIME. If you DID, then where would your "FAITH" be? PRACTICE 'TAKING, the LEAP of Faith' EVERY day... AND store up TREASURE! - in HEAVEN! - for your DOCILITY. For the more you GIVE, to your Creator - the more you will RECEIVE. Yet it is STILL "better, to GIVE", than to receive. (November 21, 2016)
