Obeying the 10…no other gods, no idol worship, no using God’s name in vain, remember the Sabbath, honor parents, no murder, no sexual immorality, no stealing, no lies, no coveting…demonstrates love for God.
Some today argue that Christians can live in habitual disobedience to God’s commands, and still be accepted…by whom? Society can choose to include you in their temporary “fellowship”…but true eternal acceptance is based on a heart position…turned to God…not away from Him!
Declarations of love for God are empty, when coming from those whose lives are dedicated to disobedience of His commands. Jesus said, gossipers, haters, the jealous, those who practice homosexuality, abortionists…these do not love God!
We all sin…but we must not love it…
If you love your sin, you can repent. It is never too late!
“Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as He is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God.” (1 John 3:7-9/ESV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
