Weekly Rap-Up with Timothy Brindle
John Piper once said that the mark of a christian is, “I hate my sin!” He said that the genuine christian wages war against his sin because he hates it so much. In this song, Timothy Brindle shows the connection between the act of killing sin and one’s salvation – it doesn’t save the person, it proves the person’s salvation.
Killing Sin is not a prescription of how to be forgiven.It’s a description of the Christian who is forgiven by trusting in the risen Christ who took our wrath and affliction.
Killing Sin is not a prescription of how to be forgiven but it’s a description of the Christian who is forgiven and the Spirit now convicts them to put off and kill their sick sin
It’s so strange how so many folks claim they’re born again when their lives are showing no change. Listen while I’m spitting, if you go about your sinning without conviction you should doubt your christian. The devil tricks people that they’re saved when they’re sleeping in their grave still to evil they’re a slave. So examine yourself are you in the Faith or are you just a slave to sin’s glamor and wealth because you seek finer things and seem fond of sin but please read 1 John 3:9 and 10 because it’s a warning. It shows if you’re a fraud and that this is impossible if you’ve been born of God to live habitually sinful. It least hear it from Christ if you don’t wanna listen to Brindle. Please understand this – Jesus demands it. Those who really love him will keep his commandments.
I’m a make this as basic as can be. They say a saved saint is like a tree. Since their faith is in Christ, their root’s in the soil. So they’re saved for life and their fruit isn’t spoil. So it makes since that if the root is alive, the dead branches fall off but their fruits gonna thrive. But if there’s no evidence of a changed life, sin’s a claimed price so you’re still dead in sin. So, Jesus is Lord your lips confess, but killing sin is that confession’s litmus test. If perhaps the truth is that you’re lacking proof with absent fruit, the axe is at the root.So, let’s be specific. You say, “But God knows my heart.” Yeah, He knows that it’s desperately wicked. So, you can repent and accept the truth dude or else when you meet Christ hear, “I never knew you.” So let’s start from the top-Your heart is a rock. You must trust Christ’s death for your charges to drop.
So repent pretenders and present your members to Him who does contenders like fender benders. I ain’t saying that I’m flawless from sin. I’m saying when I fall I go to the cross and repent. And just because we believe in eternal security don’t mean we’re not concerned with personal purity because those who’ve been elected, chosen and predestined won’t rest till the day our souls have been perfected. So we’ll work out our salvation with fear and trembling but give God the glory knowing it’s His spirit’s rendering.
