“Don’t Be A Wayward Christian!”
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. Hebrews 3:12-14
Being a Christian does not mean that we are ‘sinless’ on the contrary, we sin every day, and we are convicted of those sins. Some will repent and turn away from those sins and seek God’s righteousness. Others will be drawn to it and will not repent but allow the sin to work in their heart and end up backsliding or falling away from the righteousness of Almighty God.
It is up to those who are walking by FAITH and striving to live in righteousness with God, to encourage those, who are flirting with sin, to turn away from it. To flee, from its grasp and to RUN to God, while they STILL can.
We, who are more mature and strong in our FAITH and are striving to live in righteousness with God need to ENCOURAGE and mentor those who are weak and vulnerable to the deceptions of the devil. We have an obligation to KNOW what we believe and to be able to set the example before those who are weak and unstable. We do this because we have become partakers in Christ and we need to hold, firmly, onto our original conviction to the very end. We are the “caretakers “of the FAITH.
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to Christ, then you aren’t a part of God’s family, and can’t be a brother or sister with others of the family of God. You will be destined for Hell with NO ESCAPE, unless you turn from your sinful lifestyle and turn to God for the redemption of your soul. You can become a part of His family by: CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be a part of God’s family. Experience His AMAZING GRACE. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
