Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; Hebrews 12:14-15
Anyone who thinks being a Christian is easy , doesn’t really know anything about Christianity. Our Lord Jesus has called us to “Love Our Enemies” (Matthew 5:44) We are to strive to live in Peace with everybody. Sounds easy right? Its not so easy when your enemies hate you and some may even want to kill you. However Jesus set the standard, “Be perfect as God is perfect “ (Matthew 5:48)
As Jesus taught us , sin begins with the heart. In order to avoid sin and bitterness towards others, we need to cleanse our hearts. How can we do this? Only by the Holy Spirit and the blood of Christ can we be made Born Again
Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. Hebrews 12:16-17
Notice the author of Hebrews compares sin with Esau selling his birthright! Don’t take sin lightly, just because you are under Grace doesn’t give you a license to sin. I know we all struggle with sin, and we all fall short, however lets call upon the Holy Spirit to sanctify and strengthen us during these times of temptation
If sin doesnt repulse you , you have to ask “Are you truly Born Again”? Jesus said Nobody will see Heaven unless they are Born Again (John 3:3) I know its a struggle , its a spiritual battle for your soul, trust in Jesus Amen!
