You have already escaped the corruption of this world. Read on…
2 Peter 1:3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
If you read the blog yesterday you will know why you have escaped. It is because you are no longer owned and controlled by this world. I am of course speaking spiritually (you really ought to read yesterday’s post).
The flesh is fallen and the flesh is evil. We are all born into sin and as such our spirit is lost and removed from God. Sin has separated us. Another word for sin is evil. We tend to classify evil as “bad things”, but actually anything that is not of God is evil. People are of course from God, because we are all made in his image. But sin corrupts us and causes us to die spiritually. For this reason a man must be reborn. Jesus said to Nicodemus in the book of John chapter 3 that unless a man is born again he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
The good news (gospel means good news) is that Jesus died to pay the price for sin which God demanded. In doing so, he brought a way to each person to individually make right with and come back to God.
When we are in Christ we are new creatures and we have essentially escaped the death that is coming for all those who do not know Jesus as Lord. Death in this sense means eternal separation.
if you know Jesus, you can rejoice. if you have never made right with God, please email me and let me show you how.
