2 Corinthians 7:1
You see, it is, at least in part, up to us, how we will walk this Christian walk. Verse after verse, command after command, the writers of the New Testament, in the shadow of the cross, call, exhort, and train us to live godly, after our example and High Priest of the faith, Jesus Christ.
Not one moment may we forget that it is the pure in heart that shall see God. Nor, let us falter into the way of unbelief and die in the wilderness. But, in the same way, let us not make this journey of our own effort, or of the devices of the flesh, but by the power of the Spirit, we do put to death the misdeeds of the flesh, and so live unto God!
