Crossroads and Grace

#1

It has been said that love is a CHOICE we make. And in many ways, so is HOLINESS. Yes, Jesus did the most important part (on the Cross) — and the Holy Spirit lives in us (If we are born again - John 1:12,13) and empowers us — but He did not make us ROBOTS who always do the right thing, no matter what. We are continually being given the GRACE we need to walk in holiness — but we must CHOOSE to walk in that GRACE at every crossroads — and each choice has its own unique set of CONSEQUENCES, good or bad.

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.”
(Galatians 5:16)

Goes right along with
God’s power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, through our knowing the One who called us to his own glory and goodness.
