Repent and live


Psalm 53:2-3

“God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God, everyone has turned away. They have together become corrupt, there is no one who does good, not even one.”

Ezekiel 18:4

“For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son, both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.”

Sin is so enticing. It is a poison coated with sugar, so it makes it enticing and sweet to its consumer.. but it kills🤷🏻‍♀️. 

  Sin brings death or sin leads to death. Each day we live in sin, we kill ourselves daily without even knowing it. The devil knows the truth and because of his cunning and evil nature, he was sent from heaven and is angry, so he looks for enticing ways to bring the sons of men/sons of God to sin with him, so we will not share the glory that Jesus has freely given to us as heirs of his Father’s kingdom. This is why the enemy(satan) fights against us Christians. 

Everyday there is a new trend in the world, drawing us away from our purpose, our fellowship with our father. God repeatedly tells us in the Bible to leave the world and follow him; there is no reward in sin except death (eternal condemnation), the devil is already condemned and he is just looking for people to suffer with in eternity. I hope that won’t be you. Amen🙏

Ezekiel 18:30-32

“Therefore o house of Israel, I will judge you, each one according to his ways declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live! Turn away from all your offenses then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die o house of Israel? For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!”

We’ve been set apart as God’s children; His heirs to his kingdom. Jesus made this possible by defeating death and sin. This is why Jesus told us in the Bible that we are the light of the world, a city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden(Matt 5:14). So the devil targets us🤷🏻‍♀️

We are different from the order of this world. We are made to be different as Christians/believers; we are not allowed to do what non believers are doing.

Ezekiel 20:32

“You say, we want to be like other nations; like the peoples of the world who serve wood and stone. But what you have in mind will never happen. As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will rule over you with mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath.”

Vs 38 “I will purge you of those who revolt and rebel against me.”

Ephesians 2:6

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.”

1 Peter 2:9

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

So You can see that we are different from the people of the world. We can’t do what the world is doing, we can’t follow their trends and get lost in it. Our purpose is different . So we are the devil’s greatest enemy. Once he uses sin to entice one of us and we succumb, we make him happy and his mission easier. 

So let’s live our lives everyday doing what the devil hates/ making him angrier😉 by..

-praising our God

-Bringing people to Christ  

-living our lives for Christ


Everyday, walk in the light of God and sin will have no hold over you. 

Ezekiel 18:9

“He who follows my decrees and faithfully keeps my laws, that man is righteous. He will surely live declares the Sovereign Lord.”

May this be our portion in Jesus’ name. Amen🙏
