The Bible, the Living Word/Jesus says, "As it is written, 'there is none righteous, not even one; there is none who understands, there is none who seek God, 'all have turned aside, together they have become useless; there is none who does good, there is not even one.'" Romans 3:10-12 All people are born with a sin nature since both Adam and Eve chose to rebel against God by disobeying the one rule God gave them: "The Lord God commanded the man, saying, 'From any tree of the Garden of Eden you may eat freely; but from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die. When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.'" Genesis 2:16-17, 3:6 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 God's Living Word, Jesus levels out the playing field lest anyone says they are good because God says that none of us are good and all people are sinners! These words from God are painful, but the Truth! Pain is the great equalizer in earthly life and of all the things that can cause pain in people's lives, sin is the biggest cause of pain. Why? All sin is primarily against God. We all experience pain in some way and pain reminds us of how little control we have over our life. Little control may sound like a negative thing, but is also a big relief! Why?! God's Words are the Truth! God cannot lie. "In Hope of Eternal Life, which God who never lies, promised before the Ages or time began." Titus 1:2 "In Jesus, you also, after listening to the message of Truth, the Gospel of your salvation, having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of Promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a review to the redemption of God's own possession, to the Praise of His Glory. Ephesians 1:13-14 God promises Eternal Life to verified Holy Spirit sealed adopted children. "So that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the Hope set before us." Hebrews 6:18 Since god created me to be a free, I can either accept or disagree with God. If I disagree with God, I am wrong/sin! "This is the message we have heard from God and announce to you, that God is Light, and in God there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with God and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the Truth. If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the Truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make God a liar and God's Word is not in us." God never lies, but speaks the Truth. "God made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Jesus." 2 Corinthians 5:21 Nuggets of Truth: Jesus became sin on my behalf and paid the debt for my sins! Thus, solving my sin problem. My responsibility is to flee sin daily. "But as He who called you is Holy, you also be Holy in all your conduct, since it is written, 'You shall be Holy, for I am Holy.'" 1 Peter 1:15-16 Nuggets of Truth: God commands me to be Holy in my conduct, by acknowledging the Holy Spirit dwells within me to access the mind of Christ. "This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, 'The stone which the builders rejected, this became the very corner stone,' and 'A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense; for they stumble because they are disobedient to the Word/Jesus, and to this doom they are also appointed. But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, a people for God's own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light, for once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Beloved, I urge you to as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul." 1 Peter 2: 7-11 God is Holy. God is calling His adopted sons and daughters to Holiness because we are perfectly forgiven and made the very righteousness of God the day we accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord. "Strive for peace with everyone, and for Holiness without which no one will see God." Hebrews 12:14 Nuggets of Truth: Do you desire to see God? Then, as beloved child of God pursue peace with everyone and pursue Holiness by obeying God. God promises a New Heaven and a New Earth as written in Revelation 21:1-15, 22:1-7.
