If we are wise, we do not want God to enter into judgment with us. Today’s devotional explains one thing we can do to avoid that. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
II Corinthians 6:17-18
“We are not to remain clinging to the old wreck with expectation that we shall pump water out of her and get her safe into port. No; the cry is very different — ‘Take to the lifeboat! Take to the lifeboat!’ You are to quit the wreck, and you are to carry away from the sinking mass that which God will save. You must be separate from the old wreck, lest it suck you down to sure destruction. Your only hope of doing good to the world is by yourselves being ‘not of the world,’ even as Christ was not of the world. For you to go down to the world’s level will neither be good for it nor for you. That which happened in the days of Noah will be repeated; for when the sons of God entered into alliance with the daughters of men, and there was a league between the two races, the Lord could not endure the evil mixture, but drew up the sluices of the lower deep and swept the earth with a destroying flood. Surely, in that last day of destruction, when the world is overwhelmed with fire, it will be because the church of God shall have degenerated, and the distinctions between the righteous and the wicked shall have been broken down.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle PulpitXXXVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1891), p. 220]
