In our society today there are literally thousands of people on the path to hell unless they change their life or lifestyle. Satan has subtly presented some act or something that is against everything in the bible and because it is so subtle we don’t recognize it and then all of a sudden we see it and know that it is wrong but we have accepted it. Satan says that you don’t need God when you can have all the world has to offer. You find yourself accepting things that you know was wrong in order to keep up with the Jones’. Satan says it is okay God surely won’t judge you for that and subtly you say I am a Christian and it is nothing like murder or something like that and therefore you move away from God and His Word and accept the wrong. Sin is sin and it does not matter how small it is all the same. Little lie, same as murder, doing something that you know is wrong but not hurting anyone, the same as murder. Sin is sin and there is no middle ground.
Each time you say or do something that does not line up with the Word of God you are allowing the enemy to win. We cannot allow the enemy to win because it will lead to our destruction. You cannot continue to do something wrong and do it in the name of Christianity knowing that God will forgive you. Eventually you are going to face something that you have not expected and the price will have to be paid. Will God forgive you? Yes! Will God allow us to continue the way we are? Probably not! Not without having to pay a price. Consider this for the sake of discussion. You constantly drive 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. (Sin because the bible says to obey the laws of the land) Every day you push the limit further and further beyond until one day out of nowhere, red and blue lights come on behind you and you get pulled over by the police. (Pay the price for that you have ignored) For every action against what we know is right there is a reaction.
We cannot continue to turn our backs on what the bible says and do our own thing because every time we do we are allowing the enemy to win. We cannot allow the enemy to win we must keep our eyes focused on Jesus Christ and when those who do not agree come against us we have the Word of God as our defense and we need to do what the bible says turn the other cheek. God does not need us to fight His battles, so turn your battles over to him and don’t allow the enemy to win.
Just in case you haven’t done it or haven’t heard it before, read the bible and read it to the end and you will find all of the directions in life and at the back of the book the truth will be revealed and you will find that we win. The battle will be over and we win. But, in the meantime don’t allow the enemy to win those daily battles and sneak in and convince you that what is wrong is right and what is right is wrong. Ask God to show you and if it does not line up with what God says it is wrong.
