“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” – 2 Timothy 2:19 (KJV)

The foundation of any building determines whether its structure will last or not. A strong foundation keeps the entire structure strong, but a weak foundation will cause the collapse of the entire building.

We thank God that Christianity is built on the strong foundation of the resurrection and the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. This foundation has a seal of knowledge of Jesus Christ Himself; thus He knows all those who are His.

Dear beloved, to what extent do you know Christ Jesus? If you truly know Him, you will live with Him, serve Him, and depart from all iniquity or wickedness. If you are still struggling with sin as a child of God, then you are allowing sin to have dominion over you.

Allowing sin to dominate you will soon lead you to doubt the Word of God and become a tool in the devil’s hand (Romans 6:14). Before long, you will backslide and depart from the faith if you do not repent.

Beloved, if you are still wallowing in all manner of sins, it is time to go to God in humility and ask for grace to live a holy life for God (Hebrews 4:16).

Meditate on the Word of God that pertains to righteousness and holiness, continually fellowship with the Holy Spirit morning and evening, fellowship with Christians with good moral behavior, and cut off friends or anything else leading you to sin; then Jesus Christ will always be available to help you. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!

Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for loving me. I acknowledge my sins. Please forgive me. I receive grace to live a holy life unto you, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
