IS ABSTINENCE DIFFICULT OR NOT ?

It’s not difficult to abstain from sexual immorality,and evil,when you ask yourself: who do I love the most? God or self. What’s my greatest desire? To please God or self. What is more rewarding, satisfying or gratifying? Going to heaven or hell; one night of sin or eternity in heaven. Obeying or disobeying the creator of heaven and earth. Remember, He said, “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…{1Samuel 15:22&23}.

The question is: are you willing to sacrifice the love of God for self or anything else? Are you ready and willing to give up a chance of eternity? If yes, for what? Is it really worth it? The question is before you. What is your decision? What if Jesus returns, while I am being disobedient and unfaithful to God? Do you know about the tribulation period? If not, read about it, because, if life is difficult now,it will be worse at that time.

I love what God says in Joshua 24:14&15 “Now, therefore, fear the Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served… And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Who do you love the most and prefer to please? Is it God or self? When you have a relationship with God, you will want to please Him. In Matthew 16:23 Jesus said, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” This means you have to forget yourself, deny yourself, deprive yourself of the things that you think will make you happy, and put God first. Romans 12:1&2 says,”I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service, and be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Then 1 Corinthians 3:16 &17 reminds us,”Know ye not that ye are the temple if God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”

Now that you know this, is it hard to abstain and live for God? Are you going to change your life choices? Do you know God? Would you love to know God through His only begotten Son Jesus?
