Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them GOD was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. (1Co 10:1-6)
Following that example, we are to be holy, because He is Holy, and while secure in Him because of our faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, we are not to use our Liberty in Christ as an license to a pattern of sIn, especially (as we account sIn) egregious, public, immoral sins, for that will not only damage our testimony and ministry, but is a blight on the Name by which we stand, Jesus Christ. GOD accounts all sIn to be sIn, and those without Christ, such as we were, are guilty and condemned, dead in their trespasses and sins, separated from Him. If we are truly in Christ and secure by His hand and grace, we are free from the penalty of sIn, have power by the Spirit to overcome the power of sIn, but must still prayerfully and purposefully manage through Him the presence of sIn.
While He works and wills in us to do His good pleasure, conforming us to the image of His dear Son, He has work for us to do. As His ambassadors we are to minister to those who are hurting and in need to meet their needs as GOD directs and provides. As ministers of the Word of reconciliation we are to love one another as His disciples and disciple one another in His Word that we may grow thereby. As we go, we are to live the Gospel we preach and make disciples, taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to all, that those who hear and believe may have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
