“And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.”
Only through Him can we escape our own sinful desires. We want whatever pleases us so much that we will do anything to make our sin accepted by us and the world. That is why we need to seek Him for truth and let that truth set us free.
He gave His blood to cover our sins, don’t fight to keep living with the earthly desires that make us sin. Let Jesus in and follow Him to correct and moral living.
2 Peter 1:5-9 NLT
“In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.”
He loves everyone and wants us all to understand He has opened up so we can let go of our sinful desires and anything that is morally wrong. We will all fight our sinful nature until we accept Jesus and surrender our control.
Think of moral excellence and how much this temporary home would function smoothly with the biblical morals this country was found on. Let’s stop giving into our fetishes and bring back morality.
2 Peter 2:7 NLT
“But God also rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a righteous man who was sick of the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him.”
He has rescued all of us by sending Jesus to die for us, accept Him and be free of this corrupt immoral living and see what love can truly do. Amen
