Romans 6 1-8 please read it. People who claim to love Jesus must take a stand. You can’t continue to willfully sin and say you love Jesus. No none of us are perfect. However, we should live in a way pleasing to the Lord. He dwells in those who receive Him and live for Him and because of it if we choose we can gain a perfected holy way of living.
We all fall short, we all go through, etc. It doesn’t mean you’re choosing sinful ways. If you truly love Him you will live for Him. When a person truly fall in love with Jesus and choose to live for Him they don’t want to do what they once did. If a person doesn’t change then something is wrong. There is no way you can remain the same!
Too many people fall because they are already trying to stand on an unstable foundation. Foundations are unstable, because people are trying to have it both ways when it’s impossible. Folks don’t want to truly give up this world. When you choose Jesus there’s no way you can continue to live the same IF you do then you’re not truthfully living what you profess.
It’s not hard serving the Lord. Matter of fact the more you do the more you want to. What’s hard in the minds of many is giving up this world. You can’t give up your old ways without giving up this world.
The sad part is many people think they are fooling God, duh, NO you’re not! You may fool some people, but you sure aren’t fooling Jesus the Son nor God the Father. If you want to stay in the world, it’s your choice, but to pretend you love the Lord yet you are still in the world it gets you nowhere other than closer to hell! Playing games with your soul is very dangerous, because you don’t know the day nor the hour your time will be up. Don’t mess around and be out of chances to get it right the Creator.
People willfully choose their slavery mentalities. They are slaves to sin and they do it of free will. They are completely led by the lusts of their flesh seeking self gratification in many ways (sex, money, love, material things, etc, etc). People are more and more offended with the truth. If you’re offended with the Word of God, it only means in some way the truth affects you. It cuts like a knife. It resonates within! Many people feel this, but they continue to remain in the world.
Most times the only reason people are pretending to love the Lord is to please man. They try to make man think they are on the Lord’s side. They learn how to mock and mimic. Yet in their hearts and behind closed doors they are doing any and everything they want to even thought it’s against the Lord.
Remember anytime you’re not all in for Jesus it means you’re out! Period!
