Rev. Aaron Linford
CAUSE AND EFFECT

When Jesus quieted the tempest in Mark 4:37-41, a “great became a “great calm”. More than that, His words both cause and effect – “He rebuked the wind and said unto the sea, “Peace, be still”.” The waves could not subside until the winds were subdued. It is good to know our Lord can not only deal with results, but also banish reasons for those results.

Have you ever noticed in John’s First Epistle how he deals sin” and “sins”? That inbuilt principle dominant in nature is “sin”; the effects of yielding to this “law in
These single acts of failure to do God’s will must be confessed to be forgiven. But the sin-principle itself can be purged by “the blood of Jesus Christ . Entire sanctification is therefore possible as we “walk in the light of God”.

So in both realms of nature and grace our Lord can deal with both effect and cause. He not only can wipe away the cob-webs of evil, He can kill the spider that spins them.
