God: "I looked for someone to take a stand for me, and stand in the gap" (Ezekiel 22:30)

God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

Sin No More

Nelson Thomas Mumbai recently wrote an article titled “Sin No More” that is tucked away in the GracePeace Newsletter area.  It is really well written, and worth highlighting here.

One of the (4) basic facts about sin, noted in the article, is:

It is destructive. (John 5:14)

Christ’s reference to ‘a worse thing to happen’ refers to the damage that sin brings about in the lives of men. It takes away the glory, joy, boldness, freedom, etc. that man enjoys from God. It affects our relationship with God as well as one another. Thus, our associates too will have to reap the consequences of our sin (Rom. 3:23; Isa. 59:2; 1 Cor. 5: 4, 5).

Further, the devastating consequences of sin are not only confined to the present day but even beyond (Heb. 12:6; 1 Cor. 11:30; 1 Cor. 3:15; Rev. 20: 11ff; 21:8).

Realization of such features and the effect of sin should prompt one to seek ways to escape.
