The wages of sin is death. The soul that sins will die, it will perish in damnation, in hell. The unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. To sin is a decision. We sin because we choose to sin. To stop sinning is also a decision.
If we keep on sinning and if we keep on following after our own desires we will perish, we will end up in hell. The only way to have salvation is to obey Jesus Christ, to stop sinning, to sin no more, to be righteous and holy, to be baptized in water and to live according to the words of Jesus, in obedience to Him but if we keep on sinning we will perish.
We have to decide to stop sinning. Many Christian believers confess to be sinners and they say we are all sinners. We are not all sinners. Maybe those believers are sinners but those who follow Jesus Christ are not sinners. They have decided to turn away from sin, to obey Jesus, to live according to His words and they make that decision each and every day, a hundred times. They have to choose, either to do what is right, or to sin, to do what they know Jesus requires of them or to follow after their own desires. We have to choose. We have to choose to follow Jesus, to obey Him, if we want eternal life, but if we follow after our own desires and if we keep on sinning we will perish.
We ourselves must make that decision to stop sinning. We must make that decision every day to deny ourselves, in other words, not do what I want to do but to pick up my cross and follow Jesus, in other words: to take up that burden of obedience to Jesus, and I have to carry that cross every day. I have to follow Him. I have to obey what I know what is right. The Holy Spirit convicts each and every one of us, of sin and righteousness and judgment. God has given us a conscience. His laws are written in our hearts. We all know right from wrong, but we choose. We choose to do right or to do wrong. If we choose wrong, in other words: if we choose to sin, if we choose to disobey Jesus, to disregard Him, we will perish. To sin is a choice. It’s a decision. To follow Jesus Christ and obey Him is a choice, it is a decision. We’ve got to make that choice. If we choose wrong we will perish. We have to keep on choosing right every day for the rest of our lives, we have to keep on following Jesus every day of our lives until the very end if we want to find the entrance into the kingdom of heaven, but if we choose to go our own way, if we choose to sin, we will perish.
Many people have been deceived to believe that if you only believe in Jesus Christ you will have salvation. That is a lie from satan. If you believe in Jesus you will believe His words, you will believe His warnings and you will live according to His words as they are also recorded in the Gospels Matthew Mark Luke and John. Nobody will have any excuse when we stand before Him in judgment. If we sin, if we disobey Jesus we are already judged, we are already condemned. Those who stop sinning, who follow and obey Jesus do not get into judgment because they do not sin.
The only way to be pleasing to Jesus and to enter the kingdom of heaven is to stop sinning and to obey Jesus. The wages of sin is death. If you sin you will certainly perish, but you must decide. What is your choice today? Do you want to keep on being a sinner? Because, if you lie you’re a liar, if you sin you the sinner, if you fornicate you are a fornicator, you are a sinner. If you don’t stop sinning you will perish.
What is your choice today? Will you choose to stop sinning, choose to stop being a sinner and choose to follow and obey Jesus, and follow and obey Him until the very end? That is the only way to have eternal life.
We have to choose before it is too late, because if we stay on the wrong road we will end up at the wrong place. If we want to enter the kingdom of heaven we’ve got to choose to obey Jesus, stop sinning, obey Jesus; repent and be baptized, live holy and righteous, follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit that Jesus will give in you if you choose to follow Him, and then you will have eternal life, but you must endure until the very end.
Will you choose today to stop being a sinner and start being a follower and a disciple of Jesus Christ?
The choice is yours.
May Jesus bless you.
