“For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.” – 1 Peter 4:3 NKJV
Some people have refused to surrender their lives to Christ because they feel that they are still young. They want to enjoy themselves to the fullest before they resign to the boring Christian way of life. What a pity. May they be saved from their ignorance and delivered from the lies of Satan.
And then there are some others who say that they are born again but are still holding on to their old ways. Christians but still engaging in sharp practices, stealing, cheating, still committing sexual sins, lying, proud, drunkards, rude, disobedient, clubbing, having filthy conversations, and so on.
Brothers and sisters, it’s time to make up your mind about who you really are and where you want to spend eternity. Are you truly saved? Are you really a child of God or still a child of the devil? Are those things really needful? Are they worth it? Hey! Today I wish you’d come to the point of saying time’s up to that way of life. We have spent enough of our lives living that way and displeasing God irrespective of how old we are. It’s time to live for Jesus, and to love the Lord wholeheartedly, walking in obedience to His word. I hope you make this decision now. Amen.
