Reflecting on life, you would realize that certain changes in your life might have been due to challenges you had to face.
I implore you that though certain conditions might change your eating habits, your likes and dislikes, your definition of friendship etc, make sure that nothing is able to shake your stand or make you turn away from the #salvation you have received. It is necessary to hold on to God's word ever trusting that He is still the God that saved Daniel from the Lions, kept the Hebrew brethren from being burnt by the fiery furnace, helped the martyrs uphold their belief in Him to the end.
Is there something making you bend gradually from the truth. I implore to "Turn to the Lord for help in everything you do, and you will be successful." #Proverbs16vs3#ERV
If any situation is making you bend, make sure it is making you bend more towards God (i.e revealing secret faults to you, and making you grow to be better)
You cannot be God's light when you still live in darkness. The truth can only be fully expressed in the heart that have chosen to love it. It is one thing to tell men about God, it is another to sincerely know the God you tell men about. Any man who hopes to draw men to God he lacks is one on a futile journey. How can a man preach the Christ he doesn't not have? How can a man holding grudges teach love?
Don't be a Sceva (#Acts19vs13-16); making men think you can give them what you lack.
If we say we know God but do not obey his commands, we are lying. The truth is not in us. But when we obey God’s teaching, his love is truly working in us. This is how we know that we are living in him. If we say we live in God, we must live the way Jesus lived. #1John2vs4-6 #ERV
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. #1Corinthians9vs27#KJV
We all have made mistakes at one point or the other but there are some mistakes we must not make.
Sin is sin in the sight of God regardless of the degree our carnal understanding wants to term it (big or small) but you must not be ignorant that the punishment and consequences for the nature of sin engaged in differs. There is a sin unto death and a sin not unto death (1 John 5:16-17)
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. #1Corinthians6vs18#KJV
Fornication is one the mistakes a man must not engaged in and it still one of the ruling factor the devil uses to bring men down. Fornication is not until you commit extramarital sex. All form of pornography, masturbation and ungodly forms of sexual activity (even with your spouse) is fornication and we must not be ignorant that this is what has infiltrated the internet and media which is destroying souls in this generation. Lets all call on God to help us for truly this flesh is weak.
Many have found themselves in the loop of destruction (the path that is not of God). This is no time to nurse sins but to cry out to God to save us and help overcome the tempting desires of this world.
Lets all be careful, not every actions that led to the downfall of many were intentional. Watch and Pray.
Remember your Creator while you are young, before the bad times come—before the years come when you say, “I have wasted my life.” #Ecclesiastes12vs1#ERV
Do you have a price or your life has already been sold to God?
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. #Acts20vs24#KJV
But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. #Philippians3vs7 KJV
I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven. #Philippians3vs14#ERV
All I want is to know Christ and the power that raised him from death. I want to share in his sufferings and be like him even in his death. Then there is hope that I myself will somehow be raised from death. #Philippians3vs10to11 ERV
