Only sin will take you out.
Sin is not essential in the life of a Christian. You can quit sin. How? The Holy Spirit gives the believer a desire to quit practicing sin.
When Christ died He resurrected from the grave, then ascended to Heaven where He still resides. Your faith should be wrapped up in an exalted Christ. He’s alive. Present tense. When you got into a living Christ the new life brought responsibility.
Be responsible to the presence of a living Christ. Be conscious to Christ by faith. Recognize His eternal and holy presence by faith. This will keep out sin. Christ will “reign” in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher. Faith in Christ will produce faithfulness to the holy presence of God.
After God put you into Christ sin doesn’t have the same effect on you. Temptation doesn’t have the same effect on you. The Holy Spirit’s God given desire is yours…automatically. Something you didn’t have before the new life in Christ. It’s a desire to obey and recognize the presence of a living Christ who “freely” gives…from His Throne of Grace.
Rom 8:32… He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Faith in Christ keeps you in His holiness and out of sin. Faith in Christ recognizes His presence and His authority. Faith in Christ must never get lax by listening to the opinions of men. Faith is based in Christ. What the Scriptures say about His death, burial, and resurrection. Get beyond the birth of Christ. Get beyond the life of Christ. Get into the Throneroom where He rules from now. This will keep you in subjection to the same Christ that is soon to return for His Church.
Be prepared when Christ returns for His Bride. Don’t be caught off guard. Be aware. God sends messengers to tell about Christ who will call His Church our to meet with Him in the air. Be ready. Keep sin out and when Christ comes…those who are alive will be caught up to meet Him in the air.
1 Thess 4:17…Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Note “we” in the above verse.
