As we reflect on what Jesus did and went through for us,this Holy week. Let’s truly serve Him by doing what this scripture says :
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2 NKJV).
Romans 6:6-7, 18, 19, 22 says :
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified (put to death) with him (Christ Jesus), that the body of sin might be destroyed, that going forward we should NOT SERVE SIN.
7 For he that is DEAD is FREED FROM SIN.
18 Being then made FREE FROM SIN, all of you became the SERVANTS of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
19 …even so now yield your members SERVANTS to RIGHTEOUSNESS unto HOLINESS.
22 But now being made free from sin, and become SERVANTS to God, all of you have your FRUIT unto HOLINESS…
•Remember this Servants of righteousness always bear fruit in HOLINESS.
•Without HOLINESS no man will see God (Hebrews 12:14)
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works”. (I Timothy 2:3-6, 8-10 NKJV)
“These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.”
[Jude 1:16-25 NKJV].
