You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God. 3 You have had enough in the past of the evil things that godless people enjoy—their immorality and lust, their feasting and drunkenness and wild parties, and their terrible worship of idols.
4 Of course, your former friends are surprised when you no longer plunge into the flood of wild and destructive things they do. So they slander you. 5 But remember that they will have to face God, who stands ready to judge everyone, both the living and the dead. 6 That is why the Good News was preached to those who are now dead[b]—so although they were destined to die like all people,[c] they now live forever with God in the Spirit. ~ 1Peter 4:2-6
Here the writer is speaking to the church about what it will be like when you become a Christian, how your friends will treat you, bully you, make fun on you. But he is speaking very plainly that the end will come and EVERYONE has to stand before God. What you do, what you say, how you act and react will be judged in the end. Just as it will for the unbeliever’s.
So do we change our ways so we won’t face the judgment? Do we change your habits so we can make it into heaven? NOOOOOOOOOOO We change because we fall in Love with Jesus, we change because the Holy Spirit is transforming us, renewing our minds, thoughts, ideas, values and morals. We change so we can be who God created us to be. And we change so we can be a LIGHT to the world, our spouses, our children, grand children, friends, co-workers, class mates etc.
If you are a believer, be ALL IN, know the Word, learn to worship, learn to pray and FALL IN LOVE… this is life changing and world changing. The only way to live.
Now go out and have an EPIC day today
