APOSTASY

Devotional for August 4, 2021


Morning: 2 Timothy 1:13-14

Noon: Psalm 97

Evening: 1 Timothy 4:1-5


We must be cautious of apostasy. There is no other sin that has more terrible results than this apostasy. The process of apostasy begins when we begin to neglect the Word of God and begin to pay attention to other things. Those other things can be doctrines that go against the very nature of the Gospel, or human philosophies.


The sin of apostasy encompasses enormous guilt. It is a voluntary departure, not only from God's truth, but also from his goodness; and that is why this sin has tremendous repercussions.

A believer who, despite his struggles keeps in touch with Scripture and with the people of God can thrive despite the difficulties. But we will never reach a level in our Christian lives where warnings are no longer relevant. He who thinks he stands firm, be careful not to fall (1 Corinthians 10:12).


- Antonio Corrales


If some are dozing off in their faith today, beware! This may be the beginning of your fall.


 

Morning: 2 Timothy 1:13-14

3 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.



Noon: Psalmm 97

1 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O Lord.

9 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.



Evening: 1 Timothy 4:1-5

1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
