Happiness Versus Holiness

He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. Hebrews 11:25

Have you ever heard the verse above before? Sin is enticing yet in the times we live in many forget sometimes what is wrong and thus sinful and what is right or in other words Holy  and pleasing to God. Our goal in life should not be to just be happy but to be happy as well as Holy. There are those who make fun of the acronym WWJD or 'what would Jesus do' but in fact maybe that is a good thing to ask ourselves sometimes. 

Today many things are justified as okay and more people are concerned about being politically correct more than 'God correct'. This is a dangerous and sad state of affairs. When trying to make your own interpretation of what you think God meant by marriage for instance. Another one would be marriage vows taken so lightly even by Christians. Deciding that is it okay to do away with life in the womb. Just so many areas where we have no business determining right and wrong. Now everyone has sinned and no sin is the big one. Also we are not to judge but indeed stay on your knees and ask God to help you discern good from evil.

Whatever you have done you can go to God and He can and will forgive you and can set you free to live a life of righteousness. You can be happy and be Holy too!

PRAYER: Lord I know you love the sinner and we are all sinners. Help those people caught up in so many lies that cannot see the real truth in your word. Open blind eyes to live a life of Holiness. In Jesus' name. Amen.
