Meditating on 1 Cor. 10
@Grace2Grow (recent tweets):
faithlessness displeases God & produces idolotry, lust, sexual sin, complaining & ultimately death in wilderness.
experiencing Gods miraculous deliverence, presence, &provision arnt enuf 2keep us “in faith” ~ only Christ satisfies!
how kind of God 2show us how we hv power in Christ 2stir our own affections&appetites 2b CONTENT &selflessly GRATEFUL
how kind of God 2WARN us of pitfalls of false worship, trying 2get God 2do OUR will vs. us his, &dangerous self-confidence!
As Israel ate of sacrifices offered 2God 2commune w/God &his forgiving purpose, we eat bread &drink wine 2commune w/Jesus’ crucifixion 4us!
It’s so easy 2b self-deceivd, think we’ve victory over an area of temptation.But even the miraculous won’t promise our faithfulness.
God will ALWAYS provide a way for us 2escape/endure/emerge victorious over temptation. His presence WITH us is our safe place 2run!
So much more depth, here, to plumb….
