And this is how we know that He lives in us: We know it by the Spirit He gave us.” (1 John 3:24 NIV)
Former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was effectively a triple agent, working also for MI6 and the Spanish secret service. He was poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 while drinking tea at the Millennium Hotel in Mayfair, England, by other former KGB agents in 2006. His death brought to light a major question and possibly the reason for his assassination: Just who did Litvinenko really work for?!
There are many things in life that we may never be sure of. Your salvation, however, should not be one of those! While we can’t be hostages of mercy, single sins won’t cause us to lose our salvation or else grace doesn’t exist. But God’s conviction is meant to bring us to true brokenness and repentance before we do wander off the reservation. The fact that the Holy Spirit is dealing with you is testimony that God’s grip is still on your life!
Don’t live life next to Sin’s fence, trying to be both holy and worldly. Unlike Litvinenko, you can only serve one side. And when you belong to God, the moving of the Holy Spirit within you is the sign that you are His. So stay His! You are loved! See you at Church tomorrow! (6/28/14)
