Moral Exhortation

In God’s word there are many passages that give moral exhortation. This implies that the hearer has the ability to change his character and conduct. If this were not so, what would be the point in encouraging people to change if they did not actually have the ability to make those changes? All humans have the freedom of will and can repent and turn from evil to doing good. This implies that negative changes are also possible. People who live rightly today can also cease to live rightly in the future. How many Christians have we seen who were so on fire for God for so many years and then have ceased to live rightly and have gone back to performing immoral deeds? We risk negative judgment if we don’t continue being faithful to Jesus. This is why it is important to persevere. Jesus said those who endure to the end shall be saved.
