“Proverbs 19:2 Also, that a soul be without knowledge, it is not good.
Sin committed unknowingly is the commandment of God broken or transgressed in ignorance. It is subject to divine penalty unless pardon is sought for it in Christ and where required, restitution is carried out.
I John 3:4: “Whosoever committed sin transgresseth the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.”
Ezekiel 18:4 “Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine: the soul that sinneth it shall die.”
God is no respecter of persons. Therefore, do not reject or ignore the sound teaching of God's word that will reveal your sins to you for your thorough cleansing and holiness in Christ.
The Lord commands this concerning His followers:
Matthew 28:20, “Teaching them to observe ALL THINGS whatsoever I have commanded you.”
Cooperate with the Holy Spirit Who is willing to reveal to you all things in your life requiring confession, repentance, restitution and
cleansing through the blood of Jesus.
John 14:26 "But the Comforter, Which is the Holy Ghost, Whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."
Value the place of true and holy preachers, teachers and pastors in your life. Learn from them, listen to them, acquire their Christian materials, support them and associate with them.
2 Timothy 2:22, “… Follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” Pray as the Psalmist in your daily Christian life.
Psalm 139:23,24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Do you know that it may be the mercy of God that has located you to become aware of these truths right now, in order that you may repent, correct your ways and ultimately save yourself from God's judgment?
Accept the truth of God and make corrections to your life as necessary even if it involves restitution.
It is better to face the shame of restitution now than the eternal pain and shame of hell fire.
Thought for The Day:
Every word of truth you live by takes you closer to heaven.
Song for The Day:
Lord, teach me Your word (2x) I want to know Your word
