Sinning On Purpose

Hebrews 10:26-27
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.

There were times in my life when I wanted to do something that I knew went against Christ’s Word (the Bible), but I did it any way. That is called willful sin, and it brought serious consequences to my life. Many people have the wrong idea that they can sin on purpose and make things right with God later, but such a mentality will actually lead a person to hell if he or she does not change their ways.

Are you deliberately disobeying Jesus in any way? Admit your disobedience to Jesus and ask Him daily for strength to live by His Word. God will help you to live a pure life when you ask Him and spend time with Him.

Love For Christ Produces Obedience

When I dedicated my life to Christ, I was excited to learn about the things God liked and didn’t like. I wanted to be close to Him so badly, that I was enthusiastic about being obedient! A time came however, when obeying God in some areas started to feel like an obligation, and God showed me this verse:

Revelation 2:4-5
“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.”

If obeying God feels like a burden, then your love for Jesus has become lukewarm. Ask Jesus to fill you with a love for Him that is fire hot! That is a prayer He won’t deny 😄🙏

I John 5:3
“For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”
