19 Jun 1 Peter 4:1-7; Psalm 121:3
4 Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. 3 For the time already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable idolatries. 4 In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you; 5 but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. 6 For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God.
7 The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.
3 He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
God wants to secure the steps of our spiritual lives. Our calling is to walk in love. We need to get to the place where sin is in the past and we live the rest of our lives in the will of God. If you have ever seen the result of your human passions and felt the weight of the death that you deserve for those transgressions, you will drop sin like a hot potato. The fear and anxiety that is associated with the punishment we deserve is to intense to live with. Sin will bring fear, then it will make you sick. Rather, be self-controlled and sober minded as you grow in your communion with your Savior.
