Many people are drowning in an ocean of sin. They are on the road that leads to destruction. The only way to escape eternal damnation is to be saved from that sin and to follow the path of righteousness that leads to eternal life. Only Jesus can save us from our sin and forgive our past sins, but then we have to stay out of that ocean of sin, stay with Him, follow Him, be holy and bear fruit of righteousness. Having been workers of wickedness we must become servants of righteousness and builders of the kingdom of God.
Many people hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, they believe and call on Jesus. He saves them from their sins and addictions, but instead of following Him and staying with Him, they go right back into sin. They were lost, drowning. Jesus saved them, and then they jumped right back into sin. They are lost again.
When Jesus saves us, we must change course, we must change direction, turn away from the way we used to live, turn away from sin, turn away from the sinful worldly things that we used to do, or else we will fall right back into sin and addiction. Stop sinning, fornicating, adultery, sex outside of marriage. Stop lying, cheating, lusting, gossiping, hating, envying, hating, cursing, slandering. Get rid of those things, that tempted you into sin. Throw away the cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. Stop watching TV, movies, pornography, stop playing video games. Get off social media. Get rid of those wrong friends. Stop associating with and running after celebrities. Stop trying to be like and fit in with worldly sinful people. Stop participating in senseless entertainment, parties, worldly sports and pleasure, always eating out and running after sensuality. Stop celebrating worldly holidays, Easter, Halloween, Valentines day, Christmas and all the other holidays that are designed to make you waste money and participate in fruitless foolery. Stop trying to please people and be accepted by them. Stop buying trash and every new technological toy, cellphone, car, fashion fads, and things that you don’t need, with money that you don’t have, that gets you further into debt and desperation. Pay off your debts. Clean up your wardrobe. Get rid of revealing clothing. Stop defiling your body with tattoos and piercings. Stop wasting money on makeup, hair pieces, augmentations, plastic surgery and other modifications. God made you good, beautiful enough. Thank Him for what He gave you, take care of it and glorify Him with your body. Stop living in a dream world and face reality. Stop being lazy and slothful. Clean up your life. Get a job. Take responsibility for your own life and your own destiny. Obey Jesus and follow Him or you will end up in hell.
Obey Jesus. Call on Him to save you. Accept Him, His words and His commandments, His way of living and doing. Obey His words and commandments as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Be meticulous to obey Jesus. Repent, STOP SINNING. Be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin. SIN NO MORE.
Start living a new life, a life dedicated to Jesus. Don’t join a church, don’t become like church people. Go after Jesus, become like Him. Pray, communicate with Jesus. He will communicate with you in your heart, your spirit, your conscience. Read His words, the red letter words in some Bibles, in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Fill your mind with His words and OBEY them, act on them, live by them. Do everything in your power to do right and not sin. If you in fail, immediately repent, ask Jesus forgiveness and take the utmost care not to sin again. Practice makes perfect. Do not fall back into sin, you will be swept away and be lost again. Always go back to Jesus. Stay with Him. He will never reject you, if you come to Him.
Keep your mind on Jesus, always praying to Him, speaking to Him in your mind, in your Heart, then you will not sin. You will always be tempted in various ways. Do not give in to temptation and fall back into sin and be doomed. Many people fall into sin and never get back out again. They die in their sins and end up in hell. Every time you fall back it gets more difficult to get up again. Many lose their confidence and believe that Jesus will not accept them again, which is not true. Others stay in sin and put off going back to Jesus. They hope to carry on in sin and get a chance to repent on their death bed. They do not always get that chance. Many people die every day, unexpectedly, unprepared and they are for ever lost.
The only safe way is to follow Jesus and stay with Him. All other ways lead to destruction. Are you staying saved? Are you following Jesus and doing His will?
May Jesus bless you.
