Leave Your Filth

Whoever says ‘I know Him’ but does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps His word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him: whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which He walked. ~ 1 John 2:4-6

According to John, it’s not enough to just say that you love Jesus. In fact, you can’t even say that you know Him unless you follow Him. John goes as far as to call anyone who says they know Jesus but doesn’t follow Him and walk in His ways a liar. In our world today, so many people claim to love God. They thank Him at all the award shows. They talk about being blessed by Him in their music, but they live their lives as if He doesn’t even exist.

As we just read, John states that you don’t know God if you live in sin. He doesn’t say if you mess up but keep getting up and fight to overcome your sin. He says that if you live in sin, just give in to it and make it your norm, then you don’t even know God. So, here’s a thought, how can you love someone that you don’t even know? How can you have a relationship with someone you’ve never met?

The return of Christ is right around the corner. Don’t let Him come back to find you still wallowing in your filth. Run home to your Heavenly Father. Let Him wash you clean and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. He already paid the price; all you have to do is accept it by repenting of your sins and confessing that Jesus Christ is LORD.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Leave Your Filth.
