YET, This is a journey of a 1,000 miles.
Each step made by you to move forward in the tearing out by the roots, sin, is a step of faith putting you closer to God’s Throne and Sanctification, which takes the POWER of sin away from your life, and puts you on A journey for the “Seal of God” by the “Baptism of Fire” in the Holy Spirit. *[1]

THEN will be that Glorification, when our body Temples are removed from the PRESENCE of sin, as Jesus returns to take us to His Father’s abode! *[2]

THEREFORE:

• Exercise that part of your faith that you know you have,
• To do the things you know you should, and
— when it comes time to cleanse you of those addictions that are entrenched,
— you will have built up your trust in Christ to take that final step
— away from egregious addictions.

Though Sanctification is a lifetime progression toward truth and cleansing, as you trust God with your walk in the little affairs, He will perform miracles for The Really BIG things — Removing in an instant, the snare.

This will NOT be easy.
The “yoke” of Christ upon us is NOT a Yoke of Ease.
It’s a Yoke of Peace — inner peace… For to remove sin in our life takes work.
•Yet, our workload is “light” if we have “peace,” *[3]
•But “heavy” when we go about our work laden with sin and guilt.

The OX wears a yoke to pull heavy weights, or in plowing the farmer’s field.
The farmer then lightens the ox’s load by attaching to a double yoke another Ox partner. The Ox still works, and he’s still required to pull, but now a buddy is at his side and his burden is “light.” *[4]

JESUS partners with us in our work. We still do our part, to show our willingness to cooperate, but we will not become fully aware of how Jesus was the One Who did it ALL, until we reach our destination.

It is then we throw our Golden Crowns at Jesus’ feet exclaiming,
“HEAVEN is Cheap Enough!”
*[5]

*[1] “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:” Matthew 3:11

*[2] “My Father has many mansions, and I go to prepare a place” – the heavenly realm is the home of the Bridegroom, Jesus — the abode of His Father. The traditional Jewish marriage requires that the bridegroom go and prepare a place to take his bride back to His homeland, the place of his father’s home. Study the Jewish wedding. This is how Jesus will conduct the “Marriage.”

*[3] Luke 12:51; John 14:27
“Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay;
but rather division.” “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

*[4] Matthew 11:28-30,
“Come unto Me, all ye that labour [under sin] and are heavy laden [with guilt], and I will give you rest [release from weight of sin]. Take My yoke upon you [partner up with Me], and learn of Me [follow in My steps]; for I Am meek and lowly in heart [& humbly shoulder responsibility]: and ye shall find rest [peace] unto your souls [heart & mind]. For my yoke is easy [when Christ leads], and my burden is light [as I carry the load].”
(See also Jeremiah 30:7-8)

*[5] “Christ bids you bring all of heaven you can into your life. Talk of the great reward that awaits the overcomer. Set your face as a flint heavenward, saying, as you advance, Hear what the Lord has wrought for me. Shall we not come up to the help of the Lord against the mighty? Shall we not work with all the power that God has given us to oppose the work of Satan? An eternal weight of glory awaits the overcomer. If we gain heaven, we gain everything. Shall we not put away sin, and let Christ abide in our hearts by faith? Not until we have the mind of Christ shall we be like him, and see him as he is. When the warfare is ended, and we have gained the crown of immortality, the harp of God, the palm branch of victory, and wear the white robe of Christ’s righteousness, we shall say, Heaven is cheap enough.” – {Youth’s Instructor, January 11, 1900 Par. 1}

“The Saviour leads [Adam] to the tree of life and plucks the glorious fruit and bids him eat. He looks about him and beholds a multitude of his family redeemed, standing in the Paradise of God. Then he casts his glittering crown at the feet of Jesus and, falling upon His breast, embraces the Redeemer. He touches the golden harp, and the vaults of heaven echo the triumphant song, “Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb that was slain, and lives again!” The family of Adam take up the strain and cast their crowns at the Saviour’s feet as they bow before Him in adoration.” – {Adventist’s Home 541.1}
