Christian, you must choose sanctification. With each moment's decision, you must choose to turn away from the things of the world, and toward the things of God. Choose, friend, to separate yourself from the seductions of the world, and to "work out your salvation with fear and trembling." (Philippians 2:12) Like good king Josiah in 2 Kings 22, we must utterly destroy the pagan gods and their trappings in our lives. But be prepared for opposition from with and without, for those who seek power over you would have you controlled by the lusts of your flesh. Listen to learn more at www.QCAradio.com.
