In the time we now live in…it has become so easy for many to backslide. I am sure you have noticed how the world goes against everything in the bible….(against the spirit) that if you are not careful you will find yourself joining in,especially when you let the voices around you become louder than God’s voice. Next thing you know that light that shone bright in the dark is getting dimmer by the minute.
Often times when we find ourselves in such a case, we feel like we have lost our salvation and start battering ourselves.But thank God all our past,present,future sins were forgiven 2000 years ago…..HOWEVER that doesn’t mean we can go about sinning…your past ,present and future sins are forgiven YES and will you still make it to heaven? SURE-WHY NOT but as long as you are on earth you will suffer the consequences of those sins….which is the part we tend to forget…that many times when things aren’t working out we go blame the devil, or God forgetting that we are to blame..and you are going through the consequences of your decisions…..
REMEMBER: We were given freedom of choice. (the devil nor God can ever force u to do something ,you willingly don’t want to do)
YES-you can continue your affairs, stealing, lying, gossiping,orgies,homosexuality,etc
BUT: BE PREPARED ALSO FOR THE CONSEQUENCES.!!!
As Christians saved by grace….once we get to know our identity in Christ we cannot continue sinning.slowly but surely we will find ourselves not wanting to do the very things we used to do. all negative traits will be dropping one step at a time….the more we spend time in the word and fellowship with God.
THE KEY: NEVER STOP MEDIATING ON THE WORD.
It is not easy. you are going to find yourself backsliding but never give up…The holy spirit is there to push us back up every time we fall.
