It seemed everyone knows the message of salvation, so im leaving it to them to decide, but for those who arent sure what to do after that, this is for you.
Once saved, the Lord makes our spirits brand new. We are set free from sin, and death. And now we choose to live a life for the Lord.
Now lets look at the Lord as a king. Would a good servent slack of when the king isnt looking. Would a good servent lie to his king. Would a good servent disobey his king. No. Nor should we. After we are saved we are made new. We MUST leave our lives of sin. It is just an excuse to say we sin everyday. That is a lie put in our heads by Satan. Christ died for our sins, now we dont have keep making them. The Lord provides strength out of that.
*a side note
Many people ask me how can i believe once in grace always in grace. I believe not cause i think if those people who claim God one day, then go out and get drunk and cheat and steal the next. I believe that if you have truelly met the Lord a change can be seen in your daily life. I believe that if you have addictions the Lord can break them. I believe if you lie constantly, the Lord will set you free of that. I dont think someone who has truelly met the Lord of Heaven and Earth, who created everything, can go back to a life of sin, like he was living in before he "met God".
One of the most important things we preach is forgiveness of sins, but that doesnt help to many strong christians. So your forgiven, now what. Understand that Jesus did much much much more than just die for our sins. God cursed him so we are blessed, Jesus was made poor so we can be rich. (do not mistake that with greedy). Jesus was beat so we are healed of EVERY SICKNESS. There is not a sickness that can not be healed. Jesus raised the dead, and we the followers of him can do the same. Jesus was tied and bound, so that we may be free from all bondage, addictions, sin, lust. Everything.
If you truelly have met the Lord dont straddle the fence between sin, and Holy. Cause you dont know where you will land. Repent of ALL your wicked ways and be holy for the Lord is Holy. With blessings and prayers in Jesus name.
