Sinners LOVE Sin - SAINTS Hate Sin
We are all born into a sinful work and we have a fallen nature. We have all sinned and we come short of the glory of God. The wages of sin is death, if we keep on sinning we will perish, we will end up in hell.
There are some people who are wicked at heart. They love their sin and they don't want to change and even when they hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, that He came to take away the sins of the world and that He can make us FREE from the bondage of sin and forgive our past sin, then those wicked people want eternal life but they still want to continue in their wickedness. At heart they are wicked. They love the filth of sin, they love to wallow in it.
Many Christians are like that. Even though they have received the mercy and the grace of Jesus Christ and the opportunity to become children of God and be pure and holy they keep on going back to sin and they will quote you Bible verses to justify their sin and their sinfulness. Many of them confess to that they are sinners and that is what they are, they will perish.
There are others who are good at heart, who want to be clean, who want to be pure and holy. They embrace Jesus Christ and He sets them free from the bondage of sin. They want to be clean. A person who is clean at heart takes care of his personal hygiene, both his body and also his spirit, he hates sin, he hates filth and he does everything to stay clean. Those are the SAINTS, those are the ones who do everything in their power to be pure and holy. They HATE SIN and they love Jesus Christ
Those who are filthy at heart, they will continue in their wickedness and they will even become more wicked. It is written in the book of Revelation 22:”Let those who are filthy be filthy still and let those who are pure and holy be holy still.” What are we at heart? Are we filthy, wicked, or are we saints at heart? A SAINT will find a way to get himself cleaned up, he will stay with Jesus and seek to do what is pleasing to Him. But those who are wicked at heart, the sons of the devil, they will look for an opportunity and an excuse to sin.
Are we sons of God, SAINTS, who want to be pure and holy and pleasing to Jesus or are we sons of the devil that love the pleasures of sin? Jesus knows. Only those who cleanse and purify themselves, who are pure in heart, only they will see God because without holiness no man shall see God.
May Jesus bless you.
