Lest Meaning

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. (Colossians 3:18-21, ESV)妻たる者よ、夫に仕えなさい。それが、主にある者にふさわしいことである。 夫たる者よ、妻を愛しなさい。つらくあたってはいけない。 子たる者よ、何事についても両親に従いなさい。これが主に喜ばれることである。 父たる者よ、子供をいらだたせてはいけない。心がいじけるかも知れないから。(口語訳 コロサイ 3:18-21)


"When we permit the loose thinking in the world and in the church to drift into our attitude and practice, no longer striving to hold fast to the pattern of sound words set forth in the Scriptures, then we need to wake up. Sin is becoming trivial to us, and the sad thing is that we don't even realize it." ~Bobby L. Graham~ (Heb 3:13) "Exhort one another daily...lest any of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin."


All this is God, right here in my pea-green house, each morning, and I mean, though often forget, to give thanks, to faint down by the kitchen table in a prayer of rejoicing as the holy birds at the kitchen window peck into their marriage of seeds. So while I think of it, let me paint a thank-you on my palm for this God, for this laughter of the morning, lest it go unspoken. Excerpt from "Welcome Morning" by poet Anne Sexton


Agree with thine adversary quickly, while thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.


"For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast." Eph. 2:8,9 Are you still trying to earn a place in heaven? You can't do it. If you have sinned even one sin in your life, you are unfit to stand before a holy God. Your trust in Jesus' death on your behalf and His payment of your debt, is the only way to heaven. Please re-read Eph. 2:8,9 and Isaiah 53!
