Daily Bread 5/25/2023


    Daily Bread – May 25, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Matthew 7:23 – And then, I will announce to them that I never knew you, get away from me you workers of iniquity. Association With Jesus Means Living His Righteous Life Today, there are many people in the United States and in the rest of the world who do not want to be associated with Jesus. Even within the Church, there are those who do not want to be associated with His holiness and righteousness, and His demand for godly living. These people consider godliness to be “legalism.” However, no matter what state men are in, Jesus continues to reach out and plead with them to turn from their sins. One day the tables will be turned. These workers of iniquity are going to want to be associated with Jesus, but it will be too late, and He will command them to “get away.” Why? Because sin and iniquity is a great offense to God, and men who refuse to stop practicing such things will face the judgment (Matthew 13:41; Romans 1:18, 2:8-9; 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; 2 Peter 2:13; Colossians 3:6; Ephesians 5:6). Righteousness and holiness are the only alternatives to sin and iniquity. Sin and all the works of iniquity have already been condemned to eternal death. The gift of righteousness and holiness has been made available to all who will receive. Those who refuse to learn to hate sin as God hates sin, and who will not turn from their works of iniquity will only have a fearful judgment before them. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
