Are you a lukewarm Christian? Do you have a relationship with God? does he know you? and are you living a life pleasing to him? I have asked myself those question so many time and during those time I found myself more confuse because of the type of relationship I had with God.
The type of relationship I am referring to is a lukewarm believer, hot and cold as the Bible describe it. This type of relationship with God doesn’t happen overnight, but instead it happens overtime based on the decision you and I make daily. I listed some of the patterns I had to break through to have a better relationship with God, let me know if you can relate.
These are the patterns I had to break through.
No one can live a life pleasing to God.—–2nd Peter 1:3 His divine power have given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who has called by his own glory and goodness.
- The way you know if you have overcome a sin is to go back to it and see if you are tempted by it again. —— James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
- It’s not that big of deal, God will forgive me. ——–Hebrew 10:26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left.
- I’m young, I need to enjoy life before I can truly commit my life to God. —-Ecclesiastes 12:1 Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.”
1 John 1:9, KJV: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”.
