There you go. Throwing four letter words around! Love! Obey! Pray! People don't want to die, but they are afraid to live.

No, they are'nt afraid to live as long as they can do what ever pleases them. They want to "live" without having their conscious pricked.

“If we practice sin willfully after having received the accurate knowledge of the truth,” states the Bible, “there is no longer any sacrifice for sins left, but there is a certain fearful expectation of judgment.” (Hebrews 10:26, 27)

It's an inside job on which we are dependent on God to do an internal heart-changing work. Yes,, daily we fall.......but, it's in our "getting" up, that we cry out to Him. Prayer and repentance and obedience! Pray for one another, for the lost, the sick and countless others. Repent daily! None is perfect, No Not One!! Be obedient to His Words. Make up your mind's to whom your allegiance lies.

Ephesians 2:3 recalls how that: "We all once conducted ourselves in the lust of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others."

Who are you today in Christ Jesus? Are you an "other" or are you "another"? Another new creation in Christ Jesus? Or, you're "there", and don't need anything else, you've "got it?"

We ought to pray for one another, brethrens. We should pray that God calls and pulls, and tug, attracting others to Christ Jesus.

Are you there yet?


Your friend in Christ Jesus
Yes, I perfectly agree with you on this subject. Walking with God, is not an easy task. When you live for Christ, you have to change your hole nature, because we are born in sin, and shape in iniquity. I think that is why so many people try to prove that God is not real, or believe in a lesser idol, because it would cause them to change. People love to undulge in their sin, and don't want to change. When you say yes to God, your hole life changes, if you are truely living for God. Sometimes your flesh just wants to disobey God, and living for him, means dieing to your flesh, everyone says daily, I think that it would be better to say every second.

Bless you. No, it's not easy, but it's okay. It's okay!
