Not really much of a post…or an update. Just a few passages in the Word that have jumped out at me the last few days (and all without any as of yet known reason).
“My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.” (Prov. 1:10, NKJV)
[Is it possible for you to entice yourself? Justification and other such “well, it’s only once…” arguments?]
“Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil.” (Prov. 4:27, NKJV)
[Remove your foot from the place of evil…as in: don’t dwell where it exists.]
“If the righteous will be recompensed on the earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner.” (Prov. 11:31, NKJV)
[Quit complaining bout your (ultimately) petty problems! (Speaking to myself too, lol)]
“What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!” (Romans 6:15, NKJV)
[As Chris spoke about in his blog, liberalism is not a good thing…]
“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” (Romans 8:6-8, NKJV)
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2, NKJV)
[As I was reading these passages in bed the other night, before going to sleep, I linked the three from Romans. I read them in conjunction with one another. I’ll put that in it’s own blog.]
And, for good measure, a link to Chris’ blog on legalism.
Hope y’all didn’t mind my blathering…lol…
