THE 19TH OF SEPTEMBER
THE PRICE OF COMMITTED SIN CAN BE MAXIMUM
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? – Hebrews 10:26-29
Every person that knows the truth and was once saved, then at some point in life chooses to reject Jesus and go back to living in sin, there is no more forgiveness of sin as long as they continue to reject Jesus. This is a life and death matter. For those who truly repent and return wholehearted to the Lord, salvation is still possible, but the price that the enemy makes them pay while living in sin and serving him, is very high. There is no pleasure offered by sin that would be worth going through that torment and despair!
How greater a punishment should someone deserve who forsakes the cross because they love sin more than the Son of God, who died in their place, forsaking Jesus and the blood covenant, insulting the Holy Spirit and God’s grace? We have to constantly pay attention to our thoughts, decisions, lusts, words and actions. It is up to us to remain in Jesus and keep Him inside of us, because we have the right to choose. As long as we choose to love God, live right and keep a pure heart, we are blessed and our salvation is secure. If for some reason you ran from Jesus and you wish to come back, you can do it.
Thank You Jesus, from the bottom of my heart, for saving me! Please help me to keep a thankful heart, so that I would never ever consider going back to the sinful life! I want to be with You forever. The peace and joy I found in You cannot be compared to anything I have ever experienced. Thinking of how You suffered out of love for me, humbles me and makes me love You even more. Dear Lord, please help me to never forget that You always want what is best for me and as long as I follow You, I am never alone, because You provide and take care of me. Glory and praises to Your Holy Name, forever. Amen.
