Some are teaching, that by grace, and grace alone, we are saved. They believe, that because of grace, we are free to do whatever we want, whenever we want, and that we are not held to any judgment for our acts. That grace alone can save us.
Mark 7:6-8, Jesus said, this people honour me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Teaching as doctrine the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God. You hold the tradition of men.
What I have learned, while growing in my walk with God, is this...
Though it may not necessarily be easy to follow, all of God's commands. I continue in my heart and actions, to make the proper corrections. Always asking God for forgiveness, and strength to overcome my shortcomings and weaknesses. With an earnest desire, to have victory, over my sins. I wish to become more pleasing, in God's sight. This is nothing more, than another form of praise to God. I've found that God just wants total effort, on our part. God knows, that we are not capable of winning this fight by ourselves.
If we are not willing to make some effort, or even acknowledge the act, as sin, that can only mean, that we love the sin, more than we love God.
Psalms 44:21, would God not have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart.
If you keep falling in a ditch, filled with mud. Don't you get out of that ditch, clean yourself off, and figure out a new way, around that ditch the next time? Or do you walk right back, in that same direction, fall in, and stay in the mud?
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
