Take Up Your Cross March 5th 2015

Many are living a life that is steeped in wickedness.

They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight. (Proverbs 11:20 KJV)

A forward heart is an abomination, an outrage, an abysmal circumstance which is hated never tolerated by a holy God.  God is holy and cannot align Himself with or support in any way sin.  God HATES sin.

Many would pipe in today “But God loves the sinner ….” And this is true; however a wicked leaning heart filled with presumptuousness or haughtiness operates in enmity to the holiness of God.  God loves mankind so much that He was willing to shed His blood on the cross for all sin; past, present, and future.  That includes you sin and mine.  God loves all mankind so much He gave His Law first; later His Word both pointing out mankind’s natural disposition to sin.  His Word contains an eternal resolution for sin with God’s willingness Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to direct mankind upon the path of righteousness rather than being stuck in a deep mud hole covered in shame.  God loves mankind enough to tell him the truth regarding sin and offer Him one way out of the mud pit on this earth.

God desires for all mankind to come to the knowledge of His great unconditional love represented in His Son’s finished work upon the cross.  God delights in those who live according to His will following as He leads the way along the narrow pathway.  God has no patience for those who choose to follow the evil way of the god of this world and has placed the death sentence upon any man who chooses to live in enmity to His will for their life.
