Even though He will not force us, GOD urges us to shun evil and a fallen life and pursue hard after righteousness (Joshua 24:15, Deuteronomy 30:19). We are Christians, we are born again, we have laid down our lives in full pursuit of Jesus. We don’t get to drag the mess we were rescued from into this new life, that’s absolute absurdity. Seeking to do what we want is going back to one’s vomit, 2 Peter 2:22 (it’s disgusting I know, but that’s what it is). We have died and taken up the life Jesus has given (Galatians 2:20), we are not of this world, we are not living for the moment, we have been translated into eternity, our preoccupation right now should be Christ, to know Him. We should seek intimacy with Him because we consider that He is our life (Colossians 3:4), every enticing thing that is seeking our attention is of the devil. Why do Christians not know that these days? It’s plain and simple, there are a lot of things and mindsets that are contrary to Scripture that we have allowed that confuse us and others. When you are born into the eternal Kingdom of our Father you are no longer your own (1 Corinthians 6:19-20), you don’t get to do as you please, you don’t get to say what you want, you don’t get to be who you want to be, you are not your own but Christ’s, you do what pleases Him, you say what He says, you are who He says you are, and that is freedom! Freed from darkness and translated into God’s eternal light. This is Christianity, all the mixing is leading many astray, en route to hell! Walking with GOD is a life of daily surrender, give up your quests, surrender your hopes and dreams, give them to Jesus (Philippians 3:8), you won’t regret it!
