Do you ever meet someone, and you can’t quite put your finger on it, but you feel you already know them? There's something familiar about them that you feel drawn to. There is a reason for it, the Holy Spirit! The Bible says that we are no longer strangers, but are fellow citizens and members of God’s household. We are not strangers because we both have access to the Father. If this is true, and the Bible says it is, you should be able to tell who isn’t a part of the kingdom through that same Spirit. Some people talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. There are imposters among us. The truth is that it’s easier to tell who is than who isn’t, because the spiritual connection is powerful, but if they are an imposter you may like them but something will be missing, and it’s usually their fruit. My question for you today is, are you fooling yourself? Many people sitting in the church pews on Sunday will be left behind when Jesus calls the saints. Don’t be one of them! There is a simple test: if it’s easy for you to lie without feeling convicted, you may be in danger. Even a tiny white lie will convict you. Do you pass the test?
For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, Ephesians 2:18-19
