Are you in or are you out? Well that totally depends upon you. Unfortunately, we cannot have our sin and our God too. We cannot be like the world offering rejection, lies, hurt, pain, selfishness, hate, immorality, fear and more. We must be like God offering to the world our love, compassion, grace, kindness, forgiveness, joy, peace, selfless, and more. The world is hurting which is why it continues to hurt others. Hurt people; hurt people. Healed people; heal people.
We cannot say we acknowledge Jesus and that He is our Savior, if you're acting ridiculous with poor judgement. Your relationship with God might not be as strong as you think it is, or even if it exists at all. God has called us to live and live for His glory. Not come up with a bunch of rules on what we cannot do and look all sad and defeated trying to follow those rules. God wants us to enjoy life and be at peace.
However you will not be at peace living in sin trying to live a godly life. You then open the door for destruction on yourself. Sin invites you to do things that harm your body. Satan knows he cannot touch your body, but if he can suggest to you to keep digging in your sin, he will send the right people your way to make you forget God. Satan might create a tragic event to make you question God. It's not the fact God was not there in your pain, it was the fact that you chose your pain over God. If you believe in Jesus and know He is the Son of God, then you should know that God is always with you. #bestrong #stayencouraged
