Fitting Lessons
1 Corinthians 10:11 (NLT) These things happen to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age.
God’s purpose in showing us throughout the scriptures the sinful moments of peoples’ lives is so that we will understand that there were consequences for them then just as there are consequences we will endure for the sin choices we make in our lives today. Sin is a choice that comes with a high price to pay. Sin wants to buy out your place at the table in the Kingdom of Heaven. Praise be to Almighty God that Jesus has already paid the ultimate sin debt for all who surrender their life to Him. Therefore, God’s consequences to us for our sins are purposed to teach, correct, and prepare us to be fitted saints for His Kingdom. Don’t mistake the goodness of God’s Nature to be shallow. Yes – He does love us more than we can imagine. It is because He loves us as He does that the lessons of scripture can draw His children out of the shallows of sin and into His pure light.
