It is very true that it is by God's grace that we are awakened to our need of a Saviour, and it is the Holy Spirit that convicts us of our sin.
But once we are given this wonderful gift of salvation, there is work for us to do. We don't sit around idly by--there is work for us to do to become more like Christ.
Here are some commands given to us in Scripture, as we pursue this walk of holiness.
We are to...
- ..."grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ..." (2 Peter 3:18)
- "Follow after charity...." (1 Corinthians 14:1)
- "Flee fornication..." (1 Corinthians 6:18)
- "...exercise thyself rather unto godliness. " (1 Timothy 4:7)
We must keep our souls in mind daily, and have a goal of growing in the Lord, so we will not fill our days with worthless pursuits and entertainment.
