Willful Sin

When you sin willfully you
1) do despite unto the Spirit of grace (Heb 10:29)
2) trample under foot the Son of God (Heb 10:29)
3) dishonor the name of God and cause it to be blasphemed (Rom 2:23)

By willful sin you dishonor all three of the Godhead. Does anyone
really wish to have all three of the all-powerful Godhead angry at
them? Why is it then that we cannot do what we know is right? Paul
was truly correct when he wrote, “For the good that I would I do not:
but the evil which I would not, that I do…O wretched man that I am!
who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through
Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom 7:19,24-25). After we are risen from the
grave God promises to give us a new heart (Ezk 36:26), and He will put
a new spirit within us and cause us to walk in His statues and have us
to keep His judgments, and we will dwell in the land that God gave to
the Fathers and He will be our God. In this life we are unfortunately
sometimes “overtaken in a fault” (Gal 6:1). May God’s grace serve to
keep us from all evil.
