Do you ever feel like it is hard to be a Christian? As if the world is so far off track and it makes it barely impossible to live your life the way God wants you to. You are not wrong. It is hard and always will be. God said that it would be: In John 15:18-22 Jesus clearly says that if the world hated him they would hate you to and that it would be difficult for the sake of his name.
However, there is hope for you, for the Lord also says in Matthew 10: 34 “Think not that I have come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” The lord came to die for our sins and satan is constantly trying to stop us from accepting the blood of Jesus. Your sword is your Bible, read it and read it constantly for the lord says in Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…”
So many things that are unacceptable to God, society is welcoming and it makes it hard to do the right thing when everyone else is doing the wrong things. The world is so brainwashed by Satan that so many things that we know are so wrong just does not seem so wrong anymore. You try to think of some things you do, that you know is wrong, but everyone does it to, so you just carry on doing it. God forgives us anyway right? True, BUT only if you commit your life and REALY commit your life to Christ can He take away your sins.
So use your sword and you will learn to overcome these things. God says in Matthew 6:21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Where do you want your heart to be when this world ends?
