To sin or not to sin.

Scriptural Readings:

Matthew 13:15, Romans 7:15-20

Sin. What should we ask ourselves with this word? The questions will never end. With so many things to worry about, dealing with wickedness appeared to be another minor thing to consider. We have become so used to sin that we hardly recognize it as a danger to our well-being. And many of us do not even realize how influential it has been in our lives. Some of us have become desensitized to these evil acts and their aftermath. However, the real pitfall of sin lies not only in the actions themselves but in the lasting consequences that result from them.

It is imperative to remember that it is a severe spiritual problem. These activities, such as pornography and addiction, are so familiar that we have become accustomed to them. Slipping into a sense of complacency from these habits can make it difficult to break away and face the harsh reality. And the unfortunate part is that we do not recognize the long-term harm they can cause physically, mentally, and spiritually. This sinful world drags us down to hell.

When we embrace Jesus as our Lord and Savior, He forgives us for our sins and sets us free. Sin and sins are different. Sin is the root, and sins are the products. We should acknowledge that the old man, the sinful system, is removed from us. This system should no longer operate. And it should never be available in the future. God always gives us a chance to escape temptation. It is a truth, but the sad thing is that we still choose and do what is against God. It is a fact today for some Christians.

We have two things to know and consider. First, we are not God the Creator, but creations, and therefore can sin. If we see sin as a minor thing to worry about, we are obviously and grievously mistaken. We will ignore the Holy Spirit’s conviction. Second, the last days of the church age are deceiving. People mistakenly assume that their actions are God’s will when, in fact, it pushes them away from Christianity. Therefore, it is essential to understand our limitations as human beings and to be mindful of the deceptive nature of sin as it pertains to spiritual prosperity.

King James Version

Matthew 13:15

For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

New Living Translation

For the hearts of these people are hardened,

and their ears cannot hear,

and they have closed their eyes—

so their eyes cannot see,

and their ears cannot hear,

and their hearts cannot understand,

and they cannot turn to me

and let me heal them.’

Our acts are ‌prone to sin forever, blinding us to the truth. We are inclined ‌to believe all ‌the evils of lying, justifying their works through fleshly desires, leading us to damnation. Constantly pursuing fleshly desires creates a foundation for wicked plans, protecting our evil inclinations. Instead of listening to the Holy Spirit’s convictions, we become numb to its message. Ultimately, turning away from God will keep us from receiving his love and forgiveness, resulting in spiritual death forever.

Faith and grace in God are our sustenance, and disconnection from Him is fatal to our holy life. Everything is tragic because we have lived, continue, and will live this way. Unfortunately, we are often so wrapped up in our day-to-day lives that we do not acknowledge the importance of our connection with God, which can ultimately lead to spiritual death. Faithless in God prevents humans from being graced with His grace and mercy, leading to eternal spiritual death. It is when you hate God and won’t do what He wants.

King James Version

v.15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

v.16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good.

v.17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

v.18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which is good I find not.

v.19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

v.20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

New Living Translation

v.15 I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.

v.16 But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good.

v.17 So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

v.18 And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.

v.19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.

v.20 But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

Are we getting convictions?

This word will nail us down. As it strips us, it exposes our wicked intentions and evil nature. Without this word, our ungodly schemes would remain hidden, and our corrupt nature would remain unchecked. We ignore it effortlessly and happily, if not regularly. We are so eager to falsify, which is pure and divine, to fit our schemes and desires, far from pleasing God. And when this word works in us, we can no longer hide, revealing all our actions and intentions. Conviction is inevitable and not just an unwanted feeling to ignore. Trying to evade it by giving it a different meaning will not justify our actions.

Every day is the most meaningful battle we face. A time will come when we will have to decide for a split second only to find out we committed a mistake. Thinking is essential to making the right decision. It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant it is. While humans make mistakes, God has provided provisions. By listening to what God tells us, we can avert ‌evil. The Holy Spirit’s voice is powerful and inescapable.

And finally.

True to His words, Jesus promised He would never leave us by sending the Holy‌ Spirit. He had unlimited sources for solutions. God fulfills His promises as He always does. How about our part? Are we going continuously to sin or not? The only way to travel by water is by sea vessels. The only change that will make sense is a change done by God.

If there is one thing in the present that we think will change us, we have to think again unless it is that God is changing us today. God doesn’t change. He wants us to change to know its spiritual meaning. Remember we have options. It is exactly what He wants us to change. If we are Christians, it has to be from better to best.


Looking for a place to live?

Scriptural Readings: 

Mt 10:7, Psalm 90:1, Matthew 6:10.

In terms of kingdoms, the conclusion may be physical or spiritual. There are countries considered kingdoms that exist today. With a counterpart, the spiritual is another matter to consider. The two empires ran differently, and not all understood how they worked. Does it make sense to look deeper? Is a more in-depth study necessary?

We know a kingdom is a place. But our knowledge and curiosity should not end at this precept. We can gain more from what we understand. Now, consider settling there permanently, spiritually, or physically. It will guide us.

Matthew 10:7

King James Version

v.7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

New Living Translation

v.7 Go and announce to them that the Kingdom of Heaven is near.

According to Jesus Christ, when Pontius Pilate asked where His domain was, His answer was not from this world. Think about it. Instead, He points to the Heavenly Kingdom, emphasizing that it is there, not here, where He truly reigns. The scriptures say the kingdom is at hand. As an analogy, for those individuals looking for a place to live, put another way, it is ready for occupancy. But why is it necessary to take time to consider this place? All we have to do is grab it. Correct? Precisely!

God desires us to comprehend the spiritual significance of His kingdom. The infinite love of our Father for us is the basis, not the physical components we used to grasp. The English term live can refer to a home in a specific location, as we once thought. By accepting the love and grace of our God, the English word live can now mean living a spiritual life. To fully grasp the meaning and then appreciate the spiritual significance of the kingdom of God, it is necessary to consider it. God wants us to know how we are in His kingdom. To further understand the power and potential of the kingdom of God, we must draw on His love and grace. It will enable us to enjoy this spiritual life to the fullest.

Psalm 90:1

King James Version

v.1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

New Living Translation

v.7 Lord, through all the generations

you have been our home!

It is mind-blowing to realize that the English word place in this verse could be a verb, not a noun. The English term place can mean a physical location, an emotional state, or a spiritual realm. It is a fascinating concept that speaks to the complexity of the language used in this verse. Now. Let us dig deeper. In Hebrew, the word place is ma`own (maw-ohn’); an abode either of God (the Tabernacle or the Temple), men (their home) or animals (their lair); hence, a retreat (or asylum): habitation (-) place habitation. However, the same, and another Hebrew word, `ownah (o-naw’), this time from an unused root apparently, means to dwell together. It speaks to the connection between God and us, filled with unconditional love.

Matthew 6:10

King James Version

v.10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven. 

New Living Translation

v.10 May your Kingdom come soon.

May your will be done on earth,

    as it is in heaven.

Thy kingdom come

Jesus wants it very clear that the kingdom of God, His infinite love and grace, is a grab away from us. Using this term, Jesus provides us with a shared home with God if we allow Him to enter our lives. It is possible through repentance and faith, which is the key to unlocking the door to the kingdom of heaven. Through this, we can receive His everlasting love and grace. The connection from God to Jesus Christ is a pathway, the only way for people to live a spiritual life full of joy.


Undeniably… It is in us.

Scriptural Readings:    

Romans 3:10,12, II Timothy 1:13-14, Ephesians 6:10-11   

Knowing what is proper and reasonable is imperative. There are too many worthwhile choices to choose one. And so, we have to narrow our options until one remains. The same applies to our spiritual lives. It is an undaunting task.   

 Romans 3:10-12   

King James Version

v.10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

v.11 none understandeth, none seeketh after God.

v.12 They are all gone out of the way they are together become unprofitable; none doeth good, no, not one.

New Living Translation

v.10 As the Scriptures say,

“No one is righteous—

    not even one.

v.11 No one is truly wise;

    No one is seeking God. 

v.12 All have turned away;

    All have become useless.

No one does good,

    not a single one.

Several of us might ask ourselves: Have I done the right thing? Am I doing the right thing? Am I capable of doing what is morally correct in the future? Human nature is always the stumbling block that holds us back from progressing. We can be overly judgmental of ourselves, which results in us constantly questioning our decisions and doubting our abilities. It can lead to a destructive feeling of being stuck and unable to move onwards and the struggles of breaking free of this cycle.    

 We are sinners, that is true, but that does not mean we cannot practice morality. There is still goodness inside of us. He cautions us that no one is doing what is right, so we should consider the repercussions of our actions. The verse says we are more likely to do the wrong things.  

 II Timothy 1:13-14   

King James Version

v.13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

v.14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

New Living Translation

v.13 Hold on to the pattern of wholesome teaching you have learned from me—a pattern shaped by the faith and love that you have in Christ Jesus.

v.14 Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us, carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you.

Can we see the holiness in us? Have we taken for granted our divine side? We are undoubtedly sinners, but God sees Jesus in us through the Holy Spirit. No matter how far we have strayed from God’s path, He still loves us and acknowledges the potential for goodness within us. The Holy Spirit guides us and helps us make the right decisions. Accepting His guidance, we can become who God intended us to be. We can do and still follow God’s will despite being imperfect.   

And so, we enter a spiritual war. And winning these battles is a daily struggle. It is not new for us. Choosing the right path can sometimes be tricky. Christians may not be experiencing Christian power in these difficult times, instead struggling with exhaustion from repeated losses in this spiritual battle, even in these difficult times. 

Ephesians 6:10-11   

King James Version

v.10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

New Living Translation

v.10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

And in the power of His might.    

Winning a war requires extraordinary might. This verse (v.10) reminds us of the power of Christ in us. It is incredibly essential to practice the strength given to us. Initially, let’s examine the Greek words to comprehend them more clearly. Starting with the English word Lord, or in this case, God is called kurios (koo’-ree-os). Two Greek words formed this word. First, kuriotes (koo-ree-ot’-ace) presents the idea of mastery or rulership. Originating from the Greek word kurios, examples being dominion or government. Second is kuroo (koo-ro’-o), from the same kurios, which means to grant authority to ratify or confirm. Now we know the power vested (kuroo) and endorsed in us by God through Jesus that we can master or rule in our lives (kuriotes). God empowers us to confront every battle in the spiritual war. It is undeniably in us. 

The evidence of the present crisis is unmistakable. The signs are all around us, pointing to the imminent coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Meanwhile, the enemy, now having a limited time, will do anything and everything to pull us back to him. 

King James Version

v.11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

New Living Translation

v.11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.

Wiles of the devil. 

In one dictionary, the meaning of wiles is devious or cunning stratagems employed in manipulating or persuading someone to do what one wants. But verse 11 tells us more. The word wiles in Greek is methodeia (meth-od-i’-ah), from a compound word of meta, a primary preposition (often used adverbially), and hodeuo (hod-yoo’-o), which means to travel or a journey. Also, the word hodeuo comes from the root word hodos (hod-os’), which means a way or a road. Metaphorically, a course of conduct, a method (i.e. manner) of thinking, feeling, and deciding. Hence, Christians do not observe manipulation and persuasion only. Instead, they consider this journey a trek through a maze of dishonesty and cunning in their spiritual lives. 

Broad is the way. 

Ways, roadways, and highways are invisible paths of truth that we travel in our spiritual lives. They are real. Life is a journey, many say. The road we travel reveals our destination in life. We are heading forward or backward, and that’s it. As a whole, we move forward, and some opt to retreat. We might get caught in the middle of this road, but we are still on it. And there is no way out. But never err in the choice of reversing. Heading backward offers a lot of fun broad ‌‌avenues (methodeia) leading straight to hell. 

The authentic way

John 14:6 used the Greek word hodos, meaning “way,” to describe Jesus as the only way to gain eternal life. Why? Because this is the root word. Compared to hodeuo (hod-yoo’-o), which only means to travel or a journey. This word resonates with a clear direction to heaven and salvation. The sound of people seeking redemption echoes through the ages, and ultimately, the answer lies in Jesus Christ. By embracing the grace of Jesus Christ, one can be redeemed and receive eternal ‌life. Alleluia!

Undeniably, it is in us. We have seen the only way and the ways to destruction. It is not about ‌what way, but the direction. It is up to us which way to go. Acceptance is the key. We either accept Jesus as our Savior and Lord and be born again or relentlessly follow the evil way and guarantee a spot in hell forever.


Are you having a relationship?

Scriptural Readings:

Psalms 8:4, 144:3, Ephesians 4:24, Colossians 3:10, Romans 6:6,11,22.

Psalm 8:4

King James Version

v.4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visits him?

New Living Translation

v.4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them,

human beings that you should care for them?

Psalm 144:3

King James Version

v.3 LORD, what [is] man, that thou takest knowledge of him! [or] the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

New Living Translation

v.3 O Lord, what are human beings that you should notice them, mere mortals that you should think about them?

Relationship. Have we perfected or moved closer to what this word means? Several people may say yes, calling it a glitch, but we still consider divorce a solution. Correct? Is it right to assume that despite our advances, divorce remains the only solution to a relationship that has ended wrong? We, as parents, are sometimes guilty of neglecting our children, causing them to resort to violence to get our attention. It is unmistakable in any way we see it.

It is inevitable to stay away from relationships. Relationships are an integral part of life. We are associated with one, even if we insist on not having one. Our conscience will affirm ‌this for us. Our relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and strangers help shape our identities and define who we are. We rely on these relationships to survive and thrive in life. Relationships are likened to oxygen; they are essential for life, but often we take them for granted. They help us grow and reach our full potential. Without them, life is incomplete. It is an integral part of our nature. The human body, including living things, must undergo a procedure to survive a relationship. If the method deteriorates, it will collapse.

Relationships need significant effort and commitment to be maintained and cultivated. If they are not taken care of, they can decline and fail, only to fall into disconnection, isolation, and loneliness. If the relationship falls apart, it will cease to exist. God knows what an unmistakable relationship is, which includes separations as well. The course of our lives depends on the relationships we have. Yet, we insist we have the answer to all of our problems, including divorce and abortion, and claim to be experts in handling human relationships.

Our God values relationships. Are there more particular reasons for having a plan of salvation if God never designed and scheduled a divine connection with us? So, our timetable of salvation is a divinely appointed and deeply valued lifeline. This plan of salvation allows us to connect with God personally. We understand his love for us in a way we cannot do without it. It helps us to understand that God cares greatly about our individual lives and wants us to have a deep relationship with him. It helps us live our lives aligned with God’s will.

Ephesians 4:24

King James Version

v.24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

New Living Translation

v.24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

Colossians 3:10

King James Version

v.10 And have put on the new [man], which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

New Living Translation

v.10 Put on your new nature and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

We view life as complicated because of the never-ending uncertainties. Facts abound in reality, and even confusing truths are precise. The volume of information we hold makes it challenging to make sense of it. Realities differ in how they apply to the condition. Even when the facts are plain and obvious, we can have anxiety about understanding the deeper meaning behind them suggested to us. Disagreements about its certainty may arise at other times. Our emotions raise issues that challenge our intellect. On top of what we have learned, we discuss something else. It changes our perceptions. Sometimes it relieves us of our anxieties or otherwise aggravates them. There must be an approach to making conditions less unbearable. We need guarantees to ‌free our minds and make what we believe unquestionable.

One of the main reasons we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, aside from salvation, is that He wants us to own His likeness. Are you willing to agree? If yes, why? Suppose we achieve what we desire by having His likeness? We are complete in our fallen state; if we have His likeness, are we not? What happens next?

A divine relationship ‌with our God is essential for accomplishing His perfect will, completing the course of the relationship, and giving Him back glory, honor, and praise. Thus, He wants us to put on a brand-new man, who is both fresh and most suitable for us since we were spiritually dead but old to God, in one sense.

God’s Spirit and ours.

Remember when God breathed His Spirit into us? After we became alive, our spirits died because of our original sin. By choosing to sin, we never listen to His will. We cannot connect with God because we are spiritually dead. Most of the time, we ignore the convictions of the Holy Spirit. We then continue to engage in pornography, have extramarital relationships, and so on.

What happened to the Spirit of God? The Spirit of God did not leave us. God’s Spirit is still with us and continues to call us to Him. He desires to bring us back to life and restore our relationship with Him. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are born again, and our spirits are restored. We are given the power to listen to God’s will and to make choices that bring us closer to Him.

Two Greek words will help us better understand our relationship with God when translated into English. The Greek word Neos (neh’-os) is a primary word meaning brand-new in English. The second word means freshness (kahee-no). When we look deeper at what it says to us, it gives us spiritual awareness. God renews our life and its freshness every day, but we never practice it. This is to remind us to take advantage of the gifts God has given us and not let them be put to waste. To further emphasize the importance of not letting God’s gifts be put to waste, we should take action and make the most of each day. By doing so, we can build a stronger, more meaningful relationship with Him. We can use this knowledge to live out our faith, drawing on God’s grace to create a life of purpose, renewal, and newness. Making the most of each day, living it to the fullest, and taking joy in the newness and freshness that comes with it.

Romans 6:6

King James Version

v.6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

New Living Translation

v.6 We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin

God said we must be dead to our sinful nature.

How will we consider the old man, who contains our sinful nature and fallen nature? To die in our former ways, we must rely on God’s strength and wisdom to overcome our carnal desires and temptations. The old man will be replaced by the new man, who is born of the Spirit, filled with righteousness, grace, and love. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are born again, and our spirits are restored.

This brand-new man reflects God’s character as loving, kind, and just. Reflecting on these characteristics, we affirm our commitment and, of course, our faith in His Word. It is how we can live a life of obedience, honoring Him and glorifying His name. We see this in action when we look at Jesus, the most exemplary example of a man who embodied God’s love, kindness, and justice. Demonstrated to us how to live a life of obedience and faith, and we can use that example to be more like Him.

Romans 6:11

King James Version

v.11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

New Living Translation

v.11 So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.

When we respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, we are drawn into a closer relationship with God and experience the abundant life He offers us. As a result, our lives are transformed and holy, and we reflect God’s love and grace. The truth of this issue will never be disputable. Therefore, our Father wants us to become reborn men. We were given the ability to surrender our lives to God and follow His will when we were born again. This will enable us to experience His love, grace, abundant life, and eternal life as well.

God’s relationship with us is the defining moment of happiness that no human emotion can capture, let alone describe. It means living an eternal life of pure, unfailing happiness. His love for us is unfailing and unconditional, and this unfailing love gives us the meaning of true happiness. Despite all the uncertainties, we always have hope. He gives us love and security despite our countless anxieties.


Do not fool yourself.

Scriptural Readings:

Ephesians 5:15-18, Psalms 14:1, I Timothy 4:1-2
I Peter 1:16.

Believing is essential for everyone. Believe it or not, deciding is the most time-consuming part of our lives. We base our decisions on what is true. It is challenging for us to trust specific things easily. It is okay to disagree with what our eyes have seen, but not everyone. Life is loaded and packed with doubts. Facts and evidence are the only things that bridge doubt and unbelief.

Ephesians 5:15-18

King James Version

V.15 See then, that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

New Living Translation

V.15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.

We live with truth and lies. We have to know these concepts. But for Christians, we are told to conduct ourselves wisely. How can we live wisely? And how can we keep ourselves sensible if we do not know the distinction between truth and lies? By not being a fool. We need to understand and differentiate between these two. But how do we know we are behaving foolishly?

The answer is straightforward: Total dependence on God should always be our answer. We only know some things. Without God’s will, we are more likely to make foolish decisions since we lack the proper foundation to make wise decisions.

King James Version

V.16 Redeeming the time because the days are evil.

V.17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding the will of the Lord [is]

V.18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

New Living Translation

V.16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.

V.17 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.

V.18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,

Foolish conclusions are always available whenever and anywhere. There is a wide variety to choose from if we continue to sin. There are ways to avoid ridiculous conduct, and one is by learning and studying the word of God. When we know what God says with particular things, we can make wise decisions based on His truth. We can live sensibly and avoid unreasonable decisions and actions if we consider these God-given guidelines and follow them. Our understanding of His will differs from ours. We must inspect ourselves and evaluate our actions and decisions. It can help us improve our own lives and the lives of others. We also need to think critically and examine how we live spiritually. The Holy Spirit will confirm specifically what our Father wants, and we work on it without questions.

I Timothy 4:1-2

King James Version

V.1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

V.2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

New Living Translation

Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.

These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.

Most of us who profess to be believers in Jesus Christ don’t admit that we are not entirely putting our trust and faith in Him. We might profess our faith in God but rarely accept that we ultimately rely on Him. On this basis, few of us continue to sin willfully. It is the same as living without the comforting presence of God. Making Jesus’ death and suffering on our behalf meaningless is a sad truth that is becoming more and more visible with each passing day.

Psalms 14:1

King James Version

To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David.
The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, [there is] none that doeth good.

New Living Translation

Only fools say in their hearts,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
not one of them does good!

Faith. It connects our body, soul, and spirit. Without it, we cannot see God and develop a relationship with Him. By expressing our faithfulness and trust in Him, our spiritual needs are given and taken care of by God as we enter the spiritual realm.
Having no faith in God is evil in its entirety. Evil begins in the heart, and when our minds agree, it leads to corruption. Corruption is nothing but faithlessness in God and only produces wickedness.

When we sin or commit immoral acts, we are saying God does not exist, and there is no condemnation of what will happen. In this condition, it is crystal clear that we are foolish. Can this happen to a Christian? Yes. It is clear from scripture that none doeth right. Nothing can change this. The devil will not stop until we backslide to a point where we even blame God. Or question the existence of Jesus as Lord and Savior, or, more dangerously, turn our backs on Him.

I Peter 1:16

King James Version

Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

New Living Translation

For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”

It is where we, as Christians and unbelievers, differ. We have the Holy Spirit convicting us. God will use anything and everything to get us back on track with Him. God wants us to be holy. Some might think that to be holy is to be like God has a character of being impossible to sin. His holiness is entirely different from ours. For us to remain holy, we must remain unspotted, as we are prone to sin.

God made it easy for us to be in the realm of being holy by requiring forgiveness through Jesus. It will be identical to being sacred. If we sin, we confess, and He is faithful and fair to forgive our sins. In this way, we enter a spiritual realm of holiness wherein we are privileged to be forgiven and enjoy a holy place.

In Conclusion,

It is inevitable for us to seek always in our fallen nature. It is the reason we get frustrated and weary. We will forever be desirous of perfection and contentment because of our sinful disposition. Leaving us only hopeless to be found. The only remedy in our fallen nature is to face the truth that we need God.

We want to explore the vastness of space, but it is endless. So, God installed a small brain to advance us in understanding its immenseness. We want to go deeper into the depths of the oceans, but what is in the shallows is yet to be learned. And finally, the ultimate question. Will there be answers to all our questions? Believe and trust in Jesus Christ (John 4:1, 6-7). We are foolish. We need salvation (John 3:3). As we continue to have this relationship with God through our Lord Jesus, all our needs and questions will be met and answered in due time.
