The moment you decide to follow Jesus you are getting into a fight with the devil, and there is only going to be one winner, you or him. You cannot win a boxing match by staying in your corner or by being on the retreat and defense all the time.
Most Christians are being battered by satan. They are not even trying to fight back. They have given up. Others expect Jesus to protect them and to do the fighting for them.
If you want salvation, you have to overcome You have to overcome satan and you have to overcome your own flesh. You have to stop sinning and go after Jesus, follow and obey Him, build the kingdom of of God, destroy the kingdom of satan and bring souls to Jesus.
Many believers cannot even stop sinning. They are defeated by satan before they even start.
Without Jesus you cannot win. Without Jesus you cannot make it, but you have to take action, You have to stay close to Jesus and be led by the Holy Spirit. First you have to defeat the devil.
How do you defeat the devil? James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Grieve, mourn, and weep. Turn your laughter to mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.”
Are you winning every day? Are you destroying the kingdom of satan, witnessing for Jesus, bringing souls to Him? Or are you cowering in a corner? Are you compromising with the world and with satan? You do not overcome by being soft on yourself and being friendly with the world, being a compromiser. You cannot party with the world today and preach Jesus tomorrow. James 4:4 “You adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever chooses to be a friend of the world renders himself an enemy of God.”
Stop being double-minded. If Jesus is your Lord, follow Him.
If you follow Jesus He leads you to victory. If you are not winning, you are not following Jesus. Get into action. Submit yourself to Jesus. Stand for righteousness. Stand for truth. Be a warrior, an overcomer, a saint. Fight the good fight every day and start winning. Win every day.
Are you serious about getting into heaven? Get Into Action. Start Winning and keep on winning, until the end. Salvation is for winners only, those who overcome.
May Jesus bless you.
