Awake to righteousness, and sin not;

Awake to righteousness, and sin not;

I  am sad to admit,  I have a sin that easily besets me.
 
I  know I  should; 
1.  Submit myself to God and
2. Resist the Devil and he will flee.

I’m not sure whether the problem is Submission or Resistance;  but there is a problem.   I  don’t think I am alone. (I hope not, anyway ).

I believe, we all struggle with something,  covetousness, lust, pride;  (lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life).

When we recognize the sin,  if we turn to God and repent, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

This is not the sin spoken of here: 

1 Corinthians 15:34
“Awake to righteousness, and sin not;  for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.

The Great Commission was given to us, that the Gospel of the Kingdom be preached throughout the earth.

We must wake up and share the knowledge that God is alive, that He  invites whosoever will to have a personal relationship with Him.

To do this our lives need to reflect Jesus,  show love to all, speak the truth in love, learn to plant the seed of the Gospel.

Seeds either need to be planted in the ground, or digested and deposited on the host plant.  Wheat or misletoe both grow when correctly distributed.

The Word is the Seed, it has been planted in our hearts, we must digest it and scatter it about.  Our sin is that people can’t see and recognize the Lord in our lives.  We don’t sound like Christ,  our actions don’t reflect His Mercy and Grace.

To reflect Jesus we must become Disciples of Jesus, learning and leaning on Him.

As we take His Yoke upon us, we will see the planting of His Seed, Watering and Harvesting become something we no longer work to do, it will be a natural outgrowth of our faith, filled lives.

1 Peter: 4. 17
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Lord teach us to wear Your Yoke in all we do.  Your Yoke is easy and Your burden is light and You will give rest to our souls.

Help us Lord, to walk with You.
