Once we are saved we do not end up in sin, such as adultery, wearing naked clothes, stealing, bribing, aborting, etc. ..not only that but we must also live a life of self-control and many other things…
There are many things we can do but we do not know that they can choke our faith and sometimes fail to bear fruit. For example, your earthly friend may ask you to accompany me to my friend’s birthday, but it may not be a sin, but before you do think about it, ask yourself. What are the pros and cons of such activities? ..the benefits may be to eat and laugh, but let’s not deceive ourselves, the spiritual loss will be more than the benefits? If you go from there you will know. or There is a certain drama on TV, and then you say no problem, it’s entertainment, but the truth is, your whole mind will move there, the only thing that will make you happy is when you remember where the drama ended..
And so you become a slave to it. or You associate friendships with everyone on the street to you, even the bad ones, you are just everyone friends Why not choose to live with them as neighbors, to greet and get to know each other, until you get into it be friends, meet every day to discuss other things that are not even important ?. you have about 50 whatsapp chat groups, from kindergarten, to college, magroup to street friends, to sports and comedy of all kinds. What does that all help you with, spiritually?
But you have only one bible study group ..When your mind is choked with many things it chokes the seed of God that is sown or sown in you that it does not grow (similar to the parable Jesus gave of the seed sown among thorns, which were choked by activity and did not bear fruit) Before going for a walk in the country, have you ever wondered what it is like to go there? If we live such a life of self-control the bible tells us .. we will never receive the prize we have set before us.
1 Corinthians 9:24 “What? Don’t you know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run like that, that you may win.
25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. then they do it in order to receive the perishable crown; but let us receive the incorruptible crown ”. you see the Apostle Paul goes on to say…
26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; I fight the same fist, not as one blowing air;
27 but I beat my body and bring it into submission; lest, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected ”.
Not everything interesting we have to try, we have to learn self-control, like athletes, and choose what to take and what to stop .. so that we can spend more time meditating on God, praying, and worshiping ..otherwise the more we see the schedule moving, the less time we will have to engage in the basics of our salvation. That’s when you will be surprised when you try to go to the mountain or your private place to pray once friends call you, ask you where you are, do we want to come? once the time for the drama has come you think you should finish the service quickly and go and check it out (all your thoughts are there), once you open whatsapp to see what’s going on there, and in your one Word group you joined, there are about 200 messages coming from different different groups. In contrast, it is interesting to read those messages.
Ask yourself, ‘Where do you find the time to meditate on God’s Word?’ So your time will always be on the line. Choose just a few close friends, the rest if they have to remain close friends who can’t connect with you for a long time ..also Stop watching Korean movies and dramas on TV, let them pass, this world is passing brother (and those movies and dramas almost all have demonic content, watching them is just increasing the number of demons in your life.)… Left all the trivial groups, including those of studying God’s Word, and family…
What did a group of elementary school people who studied 10 or 20 years ago help you now? .. maybe it would mean something to you if you didn’t have it. another responsibility to seek the face of God, but for a reason you have been given another responsibility by the higher authority… that primary school group leave, because it takes up your time and yet you would have spent that time reading the bible… get rid of the habits with some of the people you live with on the street, remain a good neighbor to you then, but to interact with life delete that relationship, you don’t have to join their villages..don’t be afraid that if you get in trouble they won’t help human beings, Hebrews 13: 6), when we obey God and He is on our side and not on the Adversary’s side.and after doing that… you will have saved a lot of time now. combustion in a manner.unusual.He will reveal Himself to you. As a result You will be spiritually fast and fast, until you bear fruit for God in a very short time. the devil.
God bless you.
