God wants us (humanity) to repent and turn away from our sins. He can and will often times allow things like a pandemic or some other catastrophic event to happen in order to get our attention. 🤔
Why? We try really hard to ignore him and do our own thing. 😔 The earth is his, creation is his.
Yet he is still patient with us. 😊 He loves us.
In order to repent, we must first acknowledge sin for what it is even if it seeps into the very fabric of society and is deemed morally ok, defended, and even promoted. Second, we must continually turn away from sin. We all don’t struggle with the same sin, what we do struggle with that we must address. Jesus teaches us he who sins is a slave to sin. John 8:34
God’s word teaches us marriage is between a man and a woman.
God teaches us we should not misuse his name in vain.
Nobody in their right mind would dishonor their parent’s name by using it in place of dishonor or a cussword, would they? Why misuse God’s name in vain? We should not do it.
God teaches us we should not have sex outside of marriage. He teaches us if we desire intimacy get married. Call it a day. Where is the commitment?
Porn is sin, looking at porn is sin. Jesus teaches us if a man looks at a woman lustfully he has committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:28
God teaches us a man should not lay with another man as he would a woman. It is an abhorrence. Leviticus 18:22
There are so many sins we commit that I have not mentioned. Honestly, with all the rules and precepts active I/we can’t obey them all. Yet we all will face judgment at the end of time.
This fact teaches us all we need a savior who can help us. I guess it’s those who want to be helped. He sacrificed his life for the sins of the entire world. Jesus did. I’m a sinner like the next person, I see I am not a good person.😖 There is only one that is good and he is God.
I completely rely on Jesus as my help, my savior, and Lord. I depend on him to advocate for me because I cannot stand before God and prove I am good, never gonna happen. Satan daily accuses all of the wrong they do and the proof is in our actions and thoughts. The cool thing about life though, God wants all of mankind to be saved. This is good news! Thankful for Jesus.
I do wrong and I am striving to do right and deny myself but at times I fall short. This is why I put my hope in Jesus, he intercedes for me. He intercedes for all who trust in him. Time is limited, repent and put your trust/hope in Jesus. PM me if you’d like to hear more about salvation through Jesus.
