“What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.”

{Romans 6:21 NKJV}

 

“This verse seems to sum it up for me. Everything requires thought, no lazy acceptance. To me it simply says, if you would not tell GOD you did it, do not do it. Of course HE knows all so, if someone does not want GOD to know they did it, do not do it. The Bible says pray in the closet not sin in the closet.”~fellowship friend

The Bible tells us to flee the things that tempt us (1 Timothy 6:11).

Giving in to those temptations leaves us feeling ashamed, wanting to hide from GOD.

As my ff stated, GOD sees it all and there’s no point in trying to hide. Wouldn’t you agree, that the best course of action is to not do those things that are displeasing to HIM?

“Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.”

{Romans 6:16 NLT}

It is an effort, everyday, to say no to the temptation to sin…but remember…you DO have a choice! And, dear friends, be careful to understand what the sinful temptation is. There is the obvious…but don’t overlook the subtle. Look again at the words my ff said…is what you are choosing to do or feel something you would tell GOD about?

When we fill our minds with GOD’s Word and keep our eyes on HIM, we can make right choices. We can choose to live a life that is pleasing to HIM.

Gaining strength though our fellowship…

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”

{1 John 1:3 KJV}
