“Awake to righteousness, and do not sin;” 1 Cor. 15:34
Wouldn’t it be something if all we needed to do is run to the Lord when we do something wrong, ask for and receive His forgiveness, and run right back into the sin we fell into? Oh, but that’s not the way it works!
Just like the Lord reminded me that day, we need to TURN AWAY FROM THE SIN. We need to LEAVE THE SIN BEHIND. We need to choose WHAT IS RIGHT instead of WHAT IS WRONG. We need to “eradicate” the sin from our lives. In other words, we need to GET RID OF IT! How? In the strength of Christ!
Certainly we should seek the Lord’s forgiveness! But, most importantly, we need day by day to leave the sin behind and walk forward in the ways of the Lord Jesus Christ!
