The Hard Part…For Many!
Step 1 was MAKING A DECISION! Step 2 is to stop sinning. I don’t really need to say much about this because it is so self-explanatory. There is no rocket science to it. But one thing I will say about sin is that it is the one thing that separates you from God and this has been so since the creation of mankind.
Understand this! I would hate for you to think these words are coming from me as I am being used by God as a mere instrument to help you to understand how serious this issue is. Many, many, many people cannot have an encounter or experience with the Creator because they wont stop sinning and as a consequence their salvation is at risk. We know what sin is but to list a few; there is lying, stealing, fornicating, adultery, jealousy, envy…and I could go on and on. You know which one applies to you because your mind tells you.
I write this to help you, to help us all develop and grow in our faith but first, sin has to be removed. I had to do it and you need to do it too. Jesus said “But everyone who hears these sayings of mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand” (Matthew 7:26). God speaks for you to hear and to put into practice, not just to hear. Through this article, He has spoken so that you can now go and do your part.
Making the decision to dedicate your life to Jesus takes conscious thought or effort and the same thing applies when deciding to stop sinning and to live a pure life.
