“God forbid, How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” (Rom 6:2)

According to (2Cor 1:20) God gives promises through His servants, but it takes connecting with God’s Son for such promises to be realized. Psalm 2:12 says “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him” Yea cannot access God the Father except through His Son Jesus Christ. Also, it is not possible to fellowship with the Father when not in fellowship with the Son. Hence 1Jn2:23 says, “Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father, (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also” Having Jesus gives you access to both God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. He is the access to the Godhead. It is through Jesus Christ that you access God’s promises.

As a result of the key role Jesus plays in releasing your blessings, you must do everything to avoid offending Him. When Joseph was a slave, he was tempted to commit adultery. Joseph persisted in holy living because he did not want to offend the One who alone can bring his dream into reality. When you sin as a believer you introduce stumbling blocks in God’s path to fulfilling His promises in your life. Sin is terrible. It can make the One who said “Yes” to say ‘No’ Hence you must flee every appearance of sin. (O.H.)
