If you are a child of God, you need to get one thing straight in your own mind. What will make you give up on God and eternal life?
You better be sure the answer is: nothing. Nothing will make me turn back on Christ.
Be ready because the world will try its best to make you give up. You see, people can't stand someone who brings conviction. You convict others when you do the right thing and they know they are not living right. Your living a godly life makes you a target to those who don't want anyone to think a person can stand above the norm. Worldly people want to bring you down to their level so they can feel good about themselves.
Little do they know that those living for Christ want to lift others up. We are here to be encouragers of others. We are not to condemn, but to point the way to right living. We should be examples of purity and holiness and joy.
How do we do that?
Loving others as Christ loves us is the only thing that will impact our world. Nothing else will work.
Please consider reading the following scriptures that I based my ideas upon:
Romans 8:35-39 Nothing separates us from His Love
John 3:17-19 Jesus came to save, not condemn
John 13:34-35 Love one another
1 Thessalonians 3:12 Increase in love toward all
