The Life and Death of Mr. Badman John Bunyan

book 001“Mr. Attentive: But do you think that the men that do thus [sin], do think that they do so vilely, so abominably?
Mr. Wiseman: The question is not what men do believe concerning their sin, but what Gods word says of it:..”

The Life and Death of Mr. Badman has had me thinking from nearly the beginning. The portion I quoted above is wonderful and comforting. It’s where I want to set up camp. What does God say about [fill in the blank]? Really, what does God have to say about whatever it is you’ve been thinking about? Struggling with? Embracing? God speaks in His word, but you have to draw near, read His holy word, pray, and listen.

{We can, we should, fully take GOD at His word}

I’ve been reading in Hebrews also and, wow, God is amazing. Read this:

“The former priests, on the one hand, existed in greater numbers because they were prevented by death from continuing, but Jesus, on the other hand, because He continues forever, holds His priesthood permanently. Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. For the Law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the Law appoints a Son, made perfect forever.” -Hebrews 7:23-28

{Jesus continues forever}

{Jesus is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him}

{Jesus always lives to make intercession for them who draw near to God through Him}

{Jesus is holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, exalted above the heavens}

{Jesus offered Himself up once for all who draw near to God through Him}

Glory, Hallelujah, Praise the Lord!
