I am saved, Romans 10:9, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” I am saved from death and everything that has to do with death - sickness, poverty, disease, depression, confusion, etc. I am saved daily, and I shall be saved, for my mortal body shall put on immortality. 1 Corinthians 15:53, "For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holya angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him,saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Could you? Could you walk away in an instant with only the Holy Spirit guiding you? Can you turn away from the allure and temptations this world has to offer? Can you leave behind family and friends to go about spreading the gospel of Truth? Can you give up your comfort to bring forth the Comforter to others?
Let me tell you for fact that this walk is not easy. First and foremost with spirit intact you must begin to see that all the riches and glitz of this world is temporary. Once you say yes to the calling you will be tempted from every angle. Every thing that you could imagine will get thrown at you by THE LORD. If you are into your Bible then you will know that the Lord tests spirits. Remember the Book of Job? This is the most prominent Book of the #Bible with what a regular man such as Job went through. Yes, it happens even when you feel it's unwarranted. Testing of your #faith is a necessary part of the process. It teaches what bad habits you have that need to be worked on or tossed out. (John 21:16) you can say you love Christ with your words, but let your actions do the proving. #Christ didn't ask Simon about his love for Him for nothing.
How much do you love Him to allow Him to to be the Light of your life and #manifest through you? (1john 4:4)
