I expect we all know Benjamin Franklin’s most famous quote, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
If you’ve been saved for very long, you surely know the Lord’s pound of cure, provided in His Word, for when we fall into sin. found in 1 John 1:9.
But what about an ounce of provention? He’s provided that too, in His Word. Check it out:
“7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:7
“… the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Cleanseth is, in the original Greek language, in the present tense. Greek tenses have very little to do with time, as they do in English. Greek tenses describe the type of action, not the time of the action. Here, the Word says literally that the blood of Jesus is continually, repeatedly cleansing (purifying, purging), i.e. literally, removing us, separating us away from all sin, if we walk in the Light.
If we walk in the Light, as He Himself is in the Light, the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, is continually separating us from all sin!!!!! Can I hear an AMEN???
Let’s all learn to apply the ounce of prevention to our lives and walk in the Light.
