Watch How You Live

8 The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but He delights in the prayers of the upright. ~ Proverbs 15:8NLT

In our world today, we love to say that God loves everybody or that Jesus loves everybody as an excuse for us to live in sin, but look at what Scripture says. The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked. Who are the wicked? Any who don’t dwell in His love. So, that means any who dwells in sin over dwelling in righteousness. Look at how Paul puts it:

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:19-23

We can’t live however we want and expect to be okay with God because He loves us. Sure He loves everyone, but we have to dwell in His love. We have to draw a line in the sand and set our minds on the things of God. I’m not saying we fall down or give in to temptation. I’m saying we can’t just give up the good fight. We have to seek God daily through prayer, reading and meditating on His Word, and worship. We have to strengthen our spirits by fasting and denying our flesh, that we might one day hear, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant, enter in.’

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Watch How You Live.
