“Unto the Church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and our”(1 Cor 1:2KJV).
Sanctified in Christ could mean made holy by virtue of our relationship with Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul made reference to the Corinthians’ right relationship with God. They were to set apart for God’s special use. His aim was to bring their lifestyle and actions in closer harmony with God’s expectations.
Then we can look at another Scripture where Jesus speaks, “do not be afraid. Go and tell my brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me” (Matthew 28:10 NKJV). Note: that even Jesus referred to His disciples as His brethren. So, Christians why are we referring to other Christians as, you guys?
Yet, many of us say, we attend a Word Church and we act like the world. If we are a Word Church then, why we cannot say what the Word of God says about all things? Have you ever stopped to look up the word guy? I guarantee if you did ,you would not saying that word.
We can quote, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue and we are snared by the words of our mouth” (Proverbs 18:21 and Proverbs 6:2). My next question would be , do we know what those two Scriptures means? If we do, then we should not say you guys unless we don't know what you are saying. We set things in motion with our mouth.
Just a thought for your to think about. Annie Dennis Eskridge, author of Sin Abides...email: email@example.com website:http://www.ruthplace.com. Be Blessed
