Without Spot or Blemish

Paul exhorts take up the full armor of God and that having done all to stand, to stand therefore.  Peter tells us to be watchful because of the devil who is seeking someone to devour and then to resist him.  Finally Jude after discussing false teachers says: “But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the love of God…”  Numerous times in Scripture we are commanded to actively resist sin and to be holy for God is holy.  Let us therefore do as Peter exhorts us “ be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.”  Pastor Doug
