Philippians 2: 15


[. . .] “blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”

What does the Apostle Paul mean by this, in his letter to the Philippians?  Is it possible to read into this, “It’s okay to toy with sin, after all there’s grace”?

You gotta be a blithering idiot to read that in there.  I mean no particular offense to blithering idiots.

But I have met some people in the past who say there is no such thing as sin.  and these folks consider themselves Christians. Really?

And I know there are hundreds and thousands of people who think all they have to do is roll back their lust a little bit.  Don’t sin as often, or don’t enjoy it as much as you used to.  Really?

Heaven is not a fast burger joint.  No one will say to you there, “Have it your way”.  What will be expected in heaven is expected now.

Look, just get busy chipping away at your sins.  If you have to be caught doing something get caught trying!   Either way, you will be caught!

Don’t think you’re going to get rid of them for a day, week, month or a year.  Get rid of them for eternity.

If you find something you can’t whoop, take it to God in earnest prayer.  If it doesn’t go away, keep taking it to God in prayer!  Judge for yourself: which is better, to die in your sins, or to die in earnest prayer?

This ain’t no dress rehearsal!

By His Grace
