Dear friend, …………
When this world tells us something is good and alright and acceptable and moral, it doesn’t matter. What matters is what GOD SAYS IS GOOD AND RIGHT. What pastors and churches and Christians tell us is good and alright and acceptable and moral doesn’t matter UNLESS IT IS WHAT GOD SAYS IS GOOD AND RIGHT.
In these times, as the Lord refers in the Old Testament to a time long ago, this world has things backwards. What is good is often considered evil, and what is evil is often considered good.
WE MUST BE CAREFUL! No matter what human beings tell us, even when they call themselves Christians, WE MUST GO TO THE LORD AND TO HIS WORD TO DETERMINE WHAT IS GOOD AND RIGHT.
When we stand before the Lord after our lives on earth are over, we will have to give an account. We will not be able to blame this world and others for what we did wrong. We will not be able to blame them for not doing what’s right. NOW IS THE TIME TO MAKE A DECISION DAY BY DAY TO SPEND TIME ALONE WITH THE LORD, TO STUDY THE BIBLE, TO GIVE OUR LIVES TO CHRIST, TO BE FILLED WITH HIS SPIRIT, AND TO LIVE ACCORDING TO GOD’S WAYS FOR GOD’S FOREVER GLORY!
Where do you stand, friend? One day you and I will stand before the Lord! What will matter is that we genuinely turned from our sins, placed our faith in Christ as Lord who died to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead, and truly lived our lives for Christ as Lord.
In practical terms, this means day by day we live LED BY GOD’S SPIRIT ACCORDING TO GOD’S WAYS AS GOD TEACHES IN THE BIBLE. The right way is God’s way!
“So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:12
