I am going to show us something in peter and Hebrews . This will be a good reminder on WHO we following . It should encourage us
to examine our walk and we should take this very serious because their is much in romans too that shows we MUST FOLLOW THE SPIRIT and NOT the flesh .
SO this is a reminder , since I know we know this , but its also something we really truly deeply need to examine and be SURE its THE SPIRIT we are following and not
the flesh .
Okay I will begin in peter . second peter . According as HIS divine power has given unto us all things that PERTAIN unto LIFE and GODLINESS , through the knowledge of Him who has called you .
Very plain that we have all we need In HIM to walk godly , to walk Holy.
As it is said in another place , Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling , FOR it is HE in You WORKING that which is well pleasing IN HIS SIGHT .
Now lets go into Hebrews chapter thirteen .
Look at this .
NOW the GOD of peace that brought again from the dead our LORD JESUS , that great shepard of the sheep, through the BLOOD of the everlasting convenant,
MAKE YOU PERFECT in every GOOD work to do HIS WILL , working IN YOU that which is well pleasing IN HIS SIGHT through JESUS CHRIST .
Let us bask in the ambidence of what many men no longer say . For you see, SIN is not well pleasing in HIS SIGHT.
SO if we are being LED OF HIS SPIRIT , FOLLOWING HIS SPIRIT , then how does paul say it
IF you walk after the SPIRIT you will not FULLFILL the lusts of the flesh . SO WE DO have a way to overcome the evil of our flesh . HIS NAME IS JESUS .
For as peter says also
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being DEAD to sin should LIVE unto RIGHTEOUSNESS.
OH YES , their is wonder working power in the blood of JESUS and that blood washes clean into the conscious of a man .
Their is more . How do we know we are truly under grace . Well let us look at the BIBLCAL definition of grace .
FOR the grace that brings SALVATION has appeared to all, TEACHING us to deny ungodliness and wordly lusts and to be walking soberly , RIGHTEOUSLY ,
and godly in this world as we await the coming of our LORD .
Now in romans paul get real serious about this , and says , WE are the servants to whom we obey , whether of sin unto death or OBEDAINCE unto RIGHTEOUSNESS.
and as it is said , GOD is not mocked for that a man sows that shall he reap. If you sow to the flesh you reap corruption but if to the SPIRIT , life everlasting .
Why do we think James too said , WHEREFORE lay apart ALLL filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness , and receive with meekness the ENGRAFTED WORD
which is able to save your souls . BUT BE YE DOERS of THE WORD and not hearers only , DECEIVING your own selves .
ITS dire we feast on holy bible doctrine and do it daily . OH those reminders and many oh I say many more will clear up things real quick .
