God Will Help But You Must Do Your Part
Jesus will help you to overcome sin and temptation, He will deliver you from bondage and addiction but you have to do your part. Jesus will help you to overcome and get into heaven but the you must follow and obey Him. You have to repent, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the washing off of your sin and you must live holy.
You must avoid temptation, avoid sin. You must remove the stumbling blocks. Change your ways. You have to fight temptation, resist the devil and he will flee from you. We read in Hebrews 12:4 "You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin;"
We have to change our ways to stay out of temptation to be able to overcome. We read in Hebrews 12:12,13 "Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, 13and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed."
You will be tempted and you will be tried, but you have to overcome to be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.
The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:13 "No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it."
You have to stop sinning and be holy. You have to work and earn a living. You have to take care of your responsibilities. Jesus will help you in everything, but you have to do your part.
You have to break with sin, bad friends and bad habits. You have to stop sinning, stop cursing, lying, cheating lusting, fornicating, adulterating, cheating, getting yourself into debt, stop being worldly and running after the pleasures of sin. Jesus will help you to overcome but if you do not put in every effort, Jesus will not help you, because you are not serious about following Him. You will end up in hell because of your own laziness and unwillingness. You have to work hard on your salvation.
We read in Luke 13:23“Lord,” someone asked Jesus, “will only a few people be saved?” Jesus answered, 24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able."
Jesus will help you, but you must do your part.
May Jesus bless you.
