Wilful Sin?!

As I mentioned a couple of times, recently here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I am truly grateful being able to once again watch television (TV)!  Thank You, Lord!

Since I cannot really go out anywhere, or do much of anything, watching TV has become really important to me.

Unlike many people, I am not fond of many of the TV shows that are on, weekly.  Especially, some of the comedy shows.

However, I enjoy movies.  Especially, old movies!

Here are some I recently watched:

Funny Face, starring Audrey Hepburn & Fred Astaire.  Here is a link to read about it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funny_Face.  It's a romance movie that I was happy I watched.

Queen Bee, starring Joan Crawford & Barry Sullivan.  If you'd like to, feel free to check it out, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Bee_(film).  It was quite an intimidating drama.  Still, I enjoyed the film.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother, starring Gene Wilder & Madelaine Kahn.  This was listed as a mystery movie.  Although it did involve mystery, it was truly a comedy, just as this link shows:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventure_of_Sherlock_Holmes'_Smarter_Brother.

Hanover Street, starring Harrison Ford & Lesley-Ann Down.  You can check it out, here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanover_Street_(film).  This was a war film, regarding WW2.  And, it was romantic in nature.  The fact that sin was involved in this movie was not comforting.  At least, not until near the end of the film, repentance happened.  For this, I praised God!

How happy I was at the end of Hanover Street, that the sinners repented

Repentance is necessary, in life.  Without it, we have no way of being looked upon by God.  After all, God cannot look upon sin.

Please don't misunderstand what I am saying. 

I realize that each and every one of us, has sinned in our lives.  We are all sinners.  Every one of us.

And, there are times when believers even fall into sin.  But, those who are saved, realize that they cannot live forever with sin in their lives.

Truly, once we come to Christ, have repented, have gained salvation, and are aware of how detrimental sin truly is, we must elect to not sin.  And, if we fall into sin, there can be repercussions.

Why?

Because of what we read in Hebrews 10:26, "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,"

Yes, there will be no more sacrifice for our sins, if we elect to sin, once we've gained salvation.

Would this be good?  Absolutely, not!

This is why we must confess our sin, and turn away from it, if we've fallen into sin.  Meaning, repent.

Then, and only then, will we be forgiven.


Until next time...
