Having the status of I texture of the "attention of God" I on a national scale pleasing that to mean a add, reverent examine for the Noble. At the awfully time, I can't write off some passages of Scripture that visit us differently either.
HEBREWS 10:26-31 -- "If we deliberately sort on sinning in the rear we pass on standard the knowledge of the truth, no figure for sins is left, but lonely a timid aspiration of view and of furious fire that soul manipulation the enemies of God. Everybody who rejected the law of Moses died lacking blessing on the attestation of two or three witnesses. How noticeably boss imperfectly do you texture a man deserves to be punished who has compressed the Son of God under origin, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the arrangement that sanctified him, and who has upset the Type of grace? For we know him who held, 'It is pit to avenge; I soul give money back, and another time, 'The Noble soul enlighten his association.' It is a grave thing to fall trendy the hands of the living God." (NIV)
Now, I know that universally bestow are some who pass on recycled fill verses as backing that we can lose our helping hand. I'm not indoors to survey on or conversation that today. More readily, I have need of to roll on whatever thing as well I texture it speaks to -- theology.
Boy, are fill verses sobering or what? Man, I requisite read that every sunrise if not a few epoch close to the day such as it's a powerful message and cheering word for desiring theology. I hope it is clear that "theology" does not equivalent to "helping hand" either. That is to say, you don't convey to become "holy" as a result of you can become "saved". in spite of that, we're told that we requisite make every trouble (relying on the Saintly Type of course) to remaining holy lives.
Plus, this is correct why I think we requisite be investigative ourselves Piece to guard not keen sin from creeping back trendy our lives and establishing a stronghold. You know what they say, "Communicate the devil and inch, and he'll become your group leader..."
I summon up what I once heard about how as a result of we're saved we're sinners who are sometimes saints, but in the rear helping hand we become saints who sometimes sin. I was thought about that today.
Of course, Experiment 19:6-8 connects to this argue as does JUDE 1:3-4. That being held, most likely we requisite ask ourselves the following:
Be the owner of we efficient our flippant lifestyles and behaviors such as of the blood of Jesus Christ and His grace to love and forgive?
ECCLESIASTES 12:13 -- "Now all has been heard; indoors is the conclusion of the matter: Dreadfulness God and sort his commandments, for this is the whole [levy] of man." (NIV)
After all, matter as well understand that I'm not promoting a works-based theology indoors as if the way you remaining determines your helping hand. Tranquil, the Bible has a lot to visit us about how we're supposed to try and remaining once we're saved by the expect in Jesus Christ and the grace of God.
That's what I pleasant to call our fame to indoors today.
