If all the blessed old saints would remember that faith in Christ saves, not the law, then maybe they could stop offending people with their mouth.
Encourage the younger generation to pray and study the Word. Then teach them how.
Let the Holy Spirit take care of sanctification.
“being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why it was credited to him as righteousness”
I’m reading Romans 5 & 6 today (NIV version). Sometimes when I read the Bible I read it in my mind as though the words are being spoken by a fiery and robust southern preacher. Sweat on the brow and handkerchief in hand. I was reading today while walking around for some excercise at work. When I got to about the middle of chapter 6 I started to recognize that I had been so into the sermon that I was walking rather briskly with a little hop in my step. I don’t think I shouted for joy but I was close if I didn’t. So, be warned, the word has a tendency to add vigor to you steps.
