Daily Devotional
You can sin all you want to


BIBLE MEDITATION:

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:4

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

When a person is saved, they are always saved. However, some people distort this truth. They get the idea that if it’s true, they’ll sin all they want to.

Friend, I’ll let you in on a secret: I sin all I want to. The thing is, I don’t want to!

You see, if you have really surrendered yourself to God and asked Him to save you, Peter tells us you’ve become “partakers of the divine nature.” If the only thing that keeps you from sinning is fear of losing your salvation, I wonder if you’ve ever been saved in the first place.

Does becoming “partakers of the divine nature” mean that you don’t sin any more? No. Before I was saved, I was running to sin. Now, I’m running from it. I may slip, but because I’m saved, I have a desire to live pure and clean to the glory of God.

ACTION POINT:

What about you? Do you have a desire to be holy? Or do you treat the doctrine of “once saved, always saved” as a license to live a sinful life? If it’s the latter, you’re in trouble.
