Revelation 21:8New International Version (NIV)
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
So today we complete this blog series on the Quest for Holiness. But the quest really has just begun. The quest is not for the faint of heart. Gird up your loins. Steel yourself. Choose to overcome fear and become the man or woman of God that you have been called to be.
Recognize that if we choose to be cowardly (FIRST ON THE LIST) we are just as guilty as the unbelieving, the vile and all the rest. We must be men and women of courage. It takes courage to overcome the temptations. It takes courage to be the man or woman who stands up to the wickedness of our current generation and comes out bloody and bruised. You will be accused of being narrow minded and overbearing. Persist anyway in telling the truth of the Gospel. Jesus is the only way. If you choose sin than you are choosing Hell. If you are in the media and you choose to lie or slant the truth you are choosing Hell. If you justify sin, you are choosing Hell. Today is your day to choose. Are you going to courageously go forth and ultimately end up in Heaven. Choose life today I plead. Today is our day of hope. Jesus died for you to experience abundant life today and in the future. Sin kills, Jesus gives life.
