We must die to sin because that act is an act that forces our LIFE to be moved from where it was first to another place.
As we always know the only thing that can move a person’s life is Death. If you die today, your life goes on. And that leads people to not know where you are going, no matter how much they look for you, they will never know where you are except God alone. and so it is when a person dies about sin, by being born again, his Life is transferred and goes into hiding by God Himself, away from the devil or anything else, so that even the devil will seek you in the spirit will never find you…
The Bible says.
Colossians 3: 3 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God”.
You see, when we die that’s when our life is hidden. If we say we are saved, but we are still living the same old life, let us be sure that God does not even care about our lives ..if we are not ready to give up our adultery, fornication, disco, fashion, insults, drunkenness, which we do from time to time etc.
let us know that the devil still has great power over our lives. he has the power to use us as he pleases, he has the power to subdue our decisions, he has the power to bring about extraordinary trials, including untimely deaths, he has the power to thwart our prayers, he has the power to mislead us. and most of all, he is able to invade our lives to a great extent by using the forces of his demons. and that’s when you’ll see, somebody says I can’t overcome some sin, I can’t stop living a certain life of sin, I can’t stop abstaining, It’s because He didn’t agree to die first so that his life could be taken and hid in God’s heart. a man whose life is hidden, the devil does not understand whatever God has planned for him, what the devil is doing is just guessing, maybe his tomorrow will be this or that, but he does not understand anything his life remains in God’s heart forever, hidden there, waiting for the time special re-disclosure ..because something that is hidden must one day be revealed. And when will it be revealed? The Bible goes on to say.
Colossians 3: 3 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory ”.
There is a day when all of God’s people will know what God’s real purpose for creation is.it is an unparalleled day, We must not miss any of us. And that’s why the Bible keeps telling us in proverbs..
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the sources of life ”.
but if you will just read this message or any other example like this, for daily customs and practices, just to fulfill your schedule, and while you do not want to make any changes in yourself, your precious life is still in the hands of the devil, knowing that everything you hear the devil he calculates and write it down, so that the day you find yourself in his dangerous traps to finish you off, he will have enough arguments to tell God why you should not be given help.
The Lord bless you.
