Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Lawlessness creeps in slowly. Did God say turns into willful sin and desires. Like a frog in pot slowly boiling without knowing, so is sin growing in our lives. All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death, one can repent of it and be forgiven. When a righteous person stops doing good and starts doing evil and then dies, he dies because of the evil he has done. When someone evil stops sinning and does what is right and good, he saves his life. They will live because they thought it over and decided to turn from their sins. Such people will not die. Put all your rebellion behind you, and find yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die in your sins. For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live! For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders. The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds. Teach these things, as you use your full authority to encourage and correct people. Make sure you earn everyone's respect.
