Do you love the things in the world? It is okay to do fun things but we have to ask ourselves if the fun things we are doing would bring glory to God or shame to Him? Ask yourself, will it help me be closer to God or further away from Him? Would what you are doing hurt your witness if someone saw you? These are just a few thoughts to ponder. Each person has to be convicted by the Holy Spirit. No one is judging anyone or trying to say they are better. To do so would to be self -righteous. None of us are perfect. We have all sinned and fallen short of God's glory it says in Romans 3:23.
Titus 2:11-12 says "For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age." There are things that will definitely hurt you as a believer and are against His word. These are the things we should avoid if we expect to have a closer walk with Him.
You can not lead a double agent or 'secret service' for Christ life. Do not be one way on Sunday and then do as you please the other 6 days. What good did the word you heard on Sunday do if you go out into the world and forget it all?
1 John 3:10 says " This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother." Think on that verse for a while.
If someone were to see you would they know you belonged to Christ?
Philippians 3:14 says "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Are you pressing on for that goal? Do you want to be more like Jesus?
PRAYER: Lord help me to turn away from things that will take me away from you. I want to reach higher for the goal of being more conformed to your image. Give me the ability to walk away from things I know are wrong and I know will hurt me. In Jesus Name. Amen.
