Yes You Can, Put God First
Author requests article critique
On a particular day this young lady met a man she had previously been acquainted with. He looked at her and said he wanted them to get back together. She looked at him, smelled the alcohol on his breath and said "no, she loved God and Jesus was the best friend she had ever had". When you love God, how could you hurt him again? To them that know to do good and do it not, it is sin.
He understood but refused to hear what she was saying to him because he did not want to submit to God. He responded saying "no body can live like that and preachers and deacons go with the sisters in the church and out of the church; no you cannot live like that and I don't believe you". Her reply was "its not up to you to believe me, its for God to know and that's what matters".
At some point men and women that proclaim to love God, must stand up and let God stand up in them. If they will put God first and foremost in their lives they will say no to sin. Sin is a convenience that a born again christian cannot afford. Yes you can put God first if they began to deny the flesh its wants and desires that goes against what God said in his Word to obey.
We as a people must love our creator more than the creature. Women must love God more than the pleasure of the sin for a moment and men likewise. If we think about what we do to God's heart when we disobey we would know that this is only a temporal fix to an eternal problem. Sin draws man far away from where they want to be in life. Sin causes man to waste up their increase, lose their families, lose jobs, and it brings shame upon them once they are caught in the act. When the sin is revealed, they ask God why, like it is his fault.
God has been calling man back to him for many, many years now. When will they hear and obey? How can man continue to sin in the Church? Evidently they are in the church building only. God is calling for man to repent his sinful ways and become the church that he was made to be in the beginning. We must go back to the Garden to find the peace, joy, and righteousness of the Father.
Yes You Can, Put God First
You can live a Holy and Righteous life in this present time, in this present world. If you cannot do it right in this world, why would one have the adacity to think that they will go to a Holy Heaven?
