After we obey God and have come into submission to Him we are not completely finished, and for this cause our enemy trembles! By God’s grace we have been saved, by His power we have been adopted and grafted into His family, and by His wisdom we now have learned that we are sent forth as mighty warriors, and as a royal priesthood, into this world to contend for the faith in Jesus Christ, to win the lost and dying soul back into the loving arms of Jesus, and to revenge all that our spiritual enemy has attempted to steal from our lives. We know that our enemy is a thief and a robber that seeks to destroy, and even kill every chance that we would ever have for the glory of God in our life, for this cause he has ignited a HOLY ANGER, whereby God has said, “Be angry but sin not!” Friends it is ok to be angry! The right kind of anger has no malice towards the individual, but rather a burning heart towards sin and darkness!
No more will we walk in our former sinful ways of lust, and pride! Now we shall overcome all evil with good! Never will we return unto to our own vomit as we read, “As a dog returneth to his own vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.” Proverbs 26:11, sure this is a graphic word picture, and it may be difficult for us to see sin as vomit, but this is exactly what God can see! Even worse, and for this cause God turns His back. Friend sin is ugly and has dire consequences, as we read, “For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life.” Romans 6:23
God is log-suffering towards us, but our enemy is also long-suffering towards us. God is not willing that any should perish, but our enemy is willing that all should perish! You see here that we must be on the winning side, and through Jesus Christ we are more than conquerors, we are His! “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 what shall we say to these things?
Praise Jesus for His “SAVING GRACE”
