It is common sense to know by touching a fire, you will get burned because at one time or another you learned that fire is HOT. It is damaging and it hurts. It would be insane for someone to deliberately place their hand in a flame, KNOWING they will get burnt. However, MOST of this world is doing just that when it comes to caring for their own soul as most do not want to take into accountability for their willful sin.. One cannot deny the conscience they have been given to know right from wrong, no matter what age they are. The bible says that “Even a child is known by his acts, whether his work is pure, and whether it is right.” in Proverbs 20:11
Those who do not go to JESUS humbled as a child will not be able to understand His ways. The truth is HARD to swallow at times but those who go to JESUS with the right heart motive, to learn more about what pleases and displeases Him, will receive the TRUTH. But Those who do not receive the truth as a child cannot understand Jesus. I’ve said this so many times but it’s so true, it’s very black and white with JESUS, people either want to obey Him or they don’t. Those who do will grow in knowledge and truth and will begin to put to death the lusts of the flesh and overcome their sins, because of the LORDS daily counsel. We MUST overcome and ENDURE to the end to be saved. Overcome what? Endure what? OVERCOME our sinful flesh and temptations , because we will be in this battle for our souls until we take our last breath. ENDURE the trials, and tribulations that test our faith. We are in a battle DAILY for our souls. We can choose to obey JESUS or disobey Him. WE HAVE A CHOICE to make daily in whom we will serve because we are faced with our sinful flesh daily. Those who are in CHRIST will face this battle daily, this is why we MUST be refreshed and renewed in our minds, because we cannot ENDURE to the end WITHOUT HIS counsel, we cannot do this in our own strength, we need JESUS to cleans us from all unrighteousness. The bible says “For a just man falls seven times, and rises up again: but the wicked shall fall by calamity”. proverbs 24:16 This is why we NEED JESUS daily. JESUS CHRIST has made it very clear what our battle is daily, and the only way we can understand is if we receive the truth as a child.
If anyone claims they have not sinned once since they were born again, they are lying. Walking in holiness and living a sanctified life is not done over night, it’s a process. Living a life of practicing sin (embracing a sinful lifestyle) is different from HATING sin and battling our sinful flesh/nature. Once we come to the knowledge of truth, there remains no sacrifice, that’s why JESUS said, go and sin no more. It’s very common sense, those whom are in CHRIST are being disciplined daily, we are learning at the feet of our master. HE forgives those who have a repentant heart. HE gives us the strength to overcome, HE gives us the strength to obey all that He commands us. WE ARE IN THE BATTLE with our flesh daily, whether people realize it or not. NOW IS THE TIME TO REPENT, PICK UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW JESUS.
GO TO JESUS AS A CHILD. Learn from the SOURCE of UNDERSTANDING, JESUS CHRIST.
Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
