The Apostle, Paul, Wrote These Words So We Would Live Holy Lives
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me His prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.
God’s Grace Was Given To Us In Christ Before The Beginning Of Time
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Yah before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ/Mashiah Yahushua, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Timothy, 1:7-10).
If Yahushua Loved Us Enough To Die For Us Then Why Won’t We Live For Him?
If Yahushua has broken the power of sin and Satan over our lives through His all loving sacrificial death and ressurrection, then why do so many Christians casually continue living in sin as though His unbelievable suffering and shed blood means absolutely nothing? If Yahushua died for us, and He did, then why do we often refuse to live for Him?
Have You Presented Your Spirit, Soul And Body As A Holy, Living Sacrifice?
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans, 12:1-2).
Are You Timid And Ashamed Of Yahushua? Are You Living In Open Rebellion To God? Or, Are You Living A Holy Life Pleasing And Acceptable Before God, Who Sent His Only Son Yahushua To Die, So That You Would Live To Honor And Glorify Him?
