Once the fish is caught, the very next strep is to keep it fresh. It may take a couple of days until it is sold. Everybody knows that in order to preserve the fish, Ice is needed!…Otherwise the fish will defile and can caught bacteria and not be ready for consumption.
Now, the Lord Jesus, spoke about the Parable of the Dragnet.
The Parable of the Dragnet
47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind,48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, 50 and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Those that were caught by God’s net, converted from their wicked ways, sacrificed their desires, cravings and surrendered all their lives to God in obedience and faithfulness are separated to God’s Kingdom. The problem is that many become defiled with time!…
Why? Because they lack God’s “Ice”- Yes, that’s right!..It’s the Holy Spirit.
Without the Holy Spirit one cannot preserve this great treasure, our salvation!…
What’s the role of the Holy Spirit in our Salvation and spiritual life? In what ways He maintains our spiritual life healthy?
- He is the Helper
- Spiritual awareness
- Good eyes
- Instills God’s thoughts
- Enables us to resist tempations
- Subdues the flesh to the Spirit
- Enable us to forgive
I’m sure the list can go on an on!..
Now, either you are a good fish, or a bad fish!.. and there’s only two options available!…
- Be transformed from bad to good fish
- MUST HAVE God’s “Ice” (Holy Spirit) in order to keep being a good fish.
