God wouldn’t be God if we were to serve him whichever way we want. Jesus left us an example, that’s why he’s Christ. He left us a standard, a way or pattern worthy to be followed by us who believe. "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it" Exodus 25:1,8-9.
I don’t know how you are making yours, but I want you to know the things of God ain’t that confusing as is purported by false prophets. Remember, "There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all" Ephesians 4:4-6.
For that reason Paul says, "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:1-3.
We each should endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit, not as dictated by us or our feelings, but ordered by Him in the bond of peace, and us flowing together according to the measure of the gift of Christ, or grace given to each one of us.
In the body of Christ is enough grace for everyone; to be humble, and gentle, and to be patient with each other, whether it be for our faults because of love.
It’s sad that some prophets, some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers are busy destroying the body of Christ, who instead of perfecting or edifying the body of Christ are walking in uncleanness, fornication and covetousness. How do I know that’s what they do? By their fruits of course. They even toss believers to and fro, "with every wind of doctrine.....and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive" Ephesians 4:14.
But I write like this because I want you to grow in Christ in all things; "the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part..."Ephesians 4:16.
I want you to grow in Christ in all things, not in ignorance or vanity of the mind. "If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another" Ephesians 4:21-25.
Some of us we got to learn to put off literal old prophets from our lives, false prophets which we know are corrupt and dishonest in our feast of charity. After you’ve done it, put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
