What is keeping you from yielding to God? What is it about “your way” that is so appealing?
This is what the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10: (my unauthorized paraphrase)
9 Don’t you know this!?
…that those who live their own way
will not actually get into God’s Kingdom?
They won’t have even the slightest share in it!
Not the sexually immoral,
not effeminate [by perversion],
not those who participate in homosexuality,
10 not thieves,
not the greedy,
[whose words are used as weapons
to abuse, insult, humiliate, intimidate, or slander],
– 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Swift’s Amped-up Paraphrase of the Bible (AMPED-UP)
The very clear message of Christ is
that sinners can be changed
when they repent in sincerity and truth,
choosing to become God’s true followers.
You can have all your sinful past forgiven by God,
and be totally accepted into His Forever Family
immediately, both here on earth now –
and in heaven where we are declared forgiven in His Courts.
