Last week I wrote a post titled “How does the biblical doctrines of Christology help us have a more godly marriage?” Of course studying Christ will impact all areas of the Christian life and not just marriage. It has never ceased to amaze me how meditating and studying Christ have produced godliness in the lives of believers. This is the case because the person and works of Christ become powerful motivations for the Christian fighting against sin.
Concerning my previous mentioned post, I realize sometimes people find some of my posts are too long to read at the moment. So here’s a a witty ditty for your theology. Or more precisely, here’s a witty ditty for your memory that hopefully remind you why meditating on Christ helps you fight against sin. Are you ready for it? Here it is:
As we adore Him, we abhor sin.
Study the attributes of Christ. Study the works of Christ. Dig deeply from the Scripture for the truth of Christ’s Divinity and Humanity and draw out the implications from these doctrine to bear upon your life. But as you do all that, don’t forget the simple purpose is that you are to adore Him. As a result of the Spirit’s work, as we adore Him in worship, you’ll find sin and temptation losing their grip. Adore Him makes you abhor sin! Move over, O Idols of our hearts! One more glorious than you is here: Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord!
