And set before me righteousness that I may walk therein
He is my Lord who I love to obey
My God help me to never go astray.

Sin is Self Love

Sin is something that many are wrapped in.  Many enjoy the pleasures of sin.  Let it be noted that it is only for a short time that this pleasure will last, but Hell will last an eternity.  Sin may feel good for a moment, but even looking at the lifespan of a person, we can see how sin has deteriorated the body, mind, and spirit.  How many old drunks do you know that have a sound mind?  How many do you know have a body that is in shape?  Do not most look much older than they really are?  Sin will destroy your spirit, soul, and body. It will destroy you not only in this life.  It will start out only as a temptation but after you fall into it, it will turn to lust, lust turns to sin, and sin brings death. (See James 1:15)

Living Dead Man

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.


Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

There is nothing more glorious than a man crucified with Christ.  It took the love of the Father, the obedience of the Son, and the drawing of the Holy Ghost to be saved.  Then after that, it took the man's obedience to follow completely after Christ.  "To be part of the bride you must be divorced from the world!"- Leonard Ravenhill  Most people try to stretch themselves in ways they are not meant to be stretched.  They try to draw near to God and do everything the world is doing.  You cannot do this.  You are either of the world or merely  in  the world, but of God.  What I mean by "of the world" is you do the things of the world and are accepted by them because your life does not oppose that evil which they do.
