THREATENED BY INIQUITY
II Timothy 2:19 NKJV "Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”
Iniquity is the greatest threat to salvation. A holy man is a powerful man; a holy man is a courageous and confident man; sin however robs you of your faith, confidence and even life! The worst thing sin does is that it can deprive a man of eternal life with God.
We either depart from iniquity or we will be told to depart as a result of iniquity. Jesus said, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:21-23
Brothers and sisters, we must depart from iniquity. God is good; God is love; God is gracious and merciful; and God is holy!
To do: Ask God for the grace to live a holy life.
