Once we repent,do not return to sin

repent

When we truly repent of our sin it would be foolish to return to what God has forgiven us.We are rewarded for righteousness,and sadly enough there also is a reward to a fool (Proverbs 26:10-11). 10 The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

 

 

Life and death is set before each and every one of us,and as some will shun what is right there will be others who are perfectly happy following a way that eventually will lead to death! (Romans 6:16-23). 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

Did you know even though man has free will and choice for His life it is still amazing how some will continue to choose sin and destroy their own soul (Proverbs 8:33-36), 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. (Proverbs 16:25). 25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

 

How many say they are a christian yet live in sin and will say the convenient saying “I’m just a sinner saved by grace”. No! sin cannot be a part of the life of the believer for the old life of sin is crucified with Christ,old things have passed away and behold all things become new!(2 Corinthians 5:17-21),sin of any kind wars against the holy spirit by which a true follower of Christ now lives (Galatians 5:16-26). 16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
