Love NOT the world, NEITHER the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is NOT IN HIM. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is NOT of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF GOD ABIDETH FOR EVER. 1 John 2:15-17
Beloved, take the word of GOD VERY SERIOUS, we cannot shuffle it under the rug and do our own thing. God's word will judge your actions... the way you talk, the way you dress, the flirting of your eyes, your lust, your secret life... you know all about it... and so does our heavenly Father. There are things in your life you need/must clean up, because they are not acceptable in God's eyes and He will not allow this to pass through unnoticeable.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
Even in Christian circles worldliness can be easily noticed at places among friends. I am greatly moved by the Holy Spirit as I write this message to you. My heart cries for what gets around and is accepted as called being "Christian".
For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. Leviticus 11:44
Let me tell you this... it is known that God keeps His promises, but do not forget that there is more written in God's word than only His promises. The Father will also keep us responsible to abide to the rest of the Scripture. He will reinforce His demand for HOLY living, if you call yourself a Child of God. This may find you on the "path" of discipline for your own good, which may be far from pleasant.
Now no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Hebrew 12:11
Abiding in God takes more than being saved, it involves commitment to God's word and acting upon it. Walk in Holiness as to please the Father. Let the joy of the Lord be your strength, which also reflects the beauty of God in your life.
Walk steadfast according to His word, so His name will be glorified and you will be honoured amongst the brethren.
Go with God and He will go with you! AMEN!
May our Father confirm His own word to your heart, I pray.
Servant of the Most High
