“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”   Romans‬ ‭6:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬
This is a question many people wonder about. “Shall I continue in sin? Do I have to sin?” And yet, it is a question that God’s Word answers often and very clearly. God forbid! Absolutely not! The reality is, when Christ lives in our hearts, we no longer want to sin, nor do we have to sin! We desire and have the power to please Him.


“He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”   Isaiah‬ ‭53:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Jesus went through the greatest suffering and mental torment this world has ever seen. He endured unspeakable agony of soul. And because He loves us, He did all this to pay the price for our sins. May we never think sin a light thing. May we be forever thankful for His sacrifice.


“Offer unto God thanksgiving…”
Psalms‬ ‭50:14‬ ‭KJV
How thankful we all should be for the bountiful blessings that God has bestowed on us. Today, and every day, let us take time to thank Him. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.


“Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,”
‭‭Jude‬ ‭1:24‬ ‭KJV‬‬
What a joy to know that our God has the power to keep us from falling into sin! As weak and prone to sin as we are, God still has the power to hold us up and keep our lives pure if, IF, we will let Him have His way in us. May we let Him be Lord of all in us.


“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psa‬ ‭46:10‬ ‭KJV
Sometimes we simply need to be still, to find peace and serenity in our Lord. This life is filled with turmoil and discouraging voices ‬‬are all around us. But let us, as God’s children, be still so we can hear the voice of our Father reassuring us that He is in control.


“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces…”. Isaiah‬ ‭25:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬                     Sometimes as we live our day to day lives, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. We get so caught up in the here and now, that we forget the future God has for us. This verse reminds us of what awaits God’s children. In Christ, death is overcome, victory is ours, and all sorrow will be forever gone.


“Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints…”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Do we realize, that we are not called of God to be sinners, to continue in the life of sin? NO! We are called to be saints! Called to holiness! Called to live a Godly life in this present world! And for every call of God, He has made a full provision for us in Christ.


“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:29‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Too many people try to believe in Jesus, or learn about Him from a ‘safe’ distance. But there is no other way to be saved, nor to find rest for the soul, except as we take His yoke upon us. That means personal identification with and devotion to Christ as Saviour and Lord.


“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.” Psa 119:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Everyone wants to be blessed. We all desire that God’s blessings rest upon our lives. This verse tells us the path of blessing, which is to walk in God’s law of love. This is the way to keep from being defiled by sin. May God help us to have that heart that seeks to walk in His law.


“…and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭1:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬
As we go through difficult times, it is very important to know that we are not alone. We must remember that Jesus Christ, our Saviour is always with us. He is not a God afar off, Who merely watches us. Rather, He is our ever present Help in time of need. He is our Emmanuel.
