Escaping The Errors Of Both

We need to escape from both errors.
Words In Season:

To escape the error of salvation by works we have fallen into the opposite error of salvation without obedience.
                                  A. W. Tozer

Bearing:
"For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
                             Romans 8:13

Bottomline:

The best of the best godly sorrow can do in our lives is to work repentance. A repentance of coming to terms with our individual sins and facing the facts of them to be sins. Then follows a readiness in our mind to change and forsake them. In this eternal contract, both parties have a role and responsibility. Jesus has saved us, yet we must work out our salvation by obeying His commands and stay out of trouble by staying out of sin.
And this where the battle starts. To will is present with us; but how to do that which is good we find not. Romans 7:18b.
Seeing another influence in our members, warring against the determination of our minds to quit sinning and start obeying God. Romans 7:23
Who then shall deliver us from this body of death? Paul the Apostle asked, utterly frustrated!
Yet the good news is that Holy Spirit remains our formidable ally in the battle against sin in our members. The reason Jesus sent us The Holy Spirit goes beyond supernatural enablement in the work of the ministry. It is to also supernaturally enable us to overcome sin and live holy. Just as he that walks with the wise shall be wise, so is he that walks with The Holy shall be holy.
Fellowshipping with and walking in The Spirit is the means THROUGH which we can mortify the deeds of the body and live holy and be holy, just as He is holy. "....but if ye through The Spirit mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live"
"For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." Romans 8:13
So what are you waiting for all ye that labour and are heavy laden with new year resolutions year by year and before you know it, by mid February, you are back to "business as usual"?
The way forward is to engage the partnership of The Holy Spirit in your daily walk with God. "Not by power nor by might......"
And to all ye reading this that are yet to come to terms with your need of Jesus as Saviour and Lord, ye need to come to terms. For without Him none can do nothing. Come to Jesus today and surrender your life to Him. And He will save you to the uttermost and empower you by His Spirit to mortify sinful deeds in your mortal body.
