The passage calls for us to obedience and spiritual purity because God is Holy (pure). In our former lives we were controlled in ignorance by the passions of the flesh (sinful desire). However, because of the grace of Christ we should obey God. This should be accomplished by prepairing ourselves to obey, focusing on the Hope of our future grace (glorification), and by conforming ourselves to God's purity.

God, Creator of All, designed the marriage of a man to a woman for both their lifetimes to reveal His glory and character and to establish order in human society beginning with the home, the smallest unit of natural human governance. Our desparately wicked hearts draw us away from God at heartbreaking speed and in tragic realities with severe consequences personally and in our society. God rescues sinners when they trust Him, believing that Jesus died for their sin, that He was buried, and that He was raised from the dead and is alive now both receiving and coming to live in those who've laid their hope, their confidence in Him rather than in themselves. Now, having been brought into His Kingdom by faith, He sets before us a new way to live, the way of His Kingdom and He is alive with us and in us to help us to walk in His Way! Where sin abounds... grace abounds so much more! Take joy in the God who saves sinners like you and I! Recorded at Refuge TLH on Sunday, June 30, 2019.

Theme: Jonah prays to God from inside the fish. His prayer gives us a guide for how to practice every day confession, how to repent and how to talk to God in the dark. God hears us no matter how deep we go into the dark seas. Jonah points us to Jesus, the greater Jonah; he shows us that God’s mercy is always deeper so that we never have to go there. We have a new life because Jesus gave his own life for us.

ME: I came to the Lord gradually as I was raised in a Lutheran home. I was active in the church youth group, I was baptized as a child and confirmed in the adolescents.
