Without holiness nobody shall see God. Jesus Christ came to blot
out our past sins and set us free from sin so we can live holy so we will be
able to enter into the kingdom of God. Jesus said He who sins is a slave of sin
but those whom the Son of God has set free will be free and free indeed.
Many people believe that it is impossible to stop sinning.
Many churches preach the same. Those are lies of the devil, which people
believe to their own destruction. People
want to believe the lies because they love sin and hate God.
Because of the wickedness in the hearts of people, God gives
them over to a deluding influence. We read in 2 Thessalonians 2:11,12: “For this reason God will send upon them a deluding
influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may
be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.”
The wages of sin is death. The soul that
sins will die.
Many people use scriptures to justify their
sinfulness. They are under a deluding influence from God because they refuse to
believe the truth and take pleasure in unrighteousness. They are addicted to
all kinds of things: pleasure, lust, TV, drugs, sex, immorality etc. God has
delivered them to their lusts.
If we love Jesus we will obey His words and
seek to be in His presence in prayer. Our whole life will be centered around
Jesus and obedience to Him.
You can stop sinning. If you are truly born
again you will be holy. Therefore,
prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope
completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but
like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because
it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”
