We must never fall into the pit of sin. Sometimes it is those who are with us who lead our way to sin. Someone with us will say that what we are doing is very right. We may fall into many sins due to the advice of many and the anger and resentment in our minds. We may not even realize that we have fallen into sin. The devil will use many tricks on us and sometimes we can not understand it. Sometimes the devil will put too many offers in front of us. There is a good example of this in our Bible itself.
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only. Matthew 4:8-11
If these were the offers of that period, what would the devil have prepared for us in this period or generation? Those of us who talk about God and talk about the Bible can sometimes be misled by giving us unwanted advice. Right and wrong are very difficult to distinguish in this period. We fall into unwanted advice because we do not have a personality of our own or the ability to think for ourselves. There are a lot of people in this society who say that everything we do is right and that it is God’s will.
Sometimes it is the desires of our mind that cause us to go astray. We will convince ourselves that the desire in our minds is right. We must never accept the desire to walk the easy path. We can achieve a lot only with hard work and dedication.
There are many temptations before us. The devil will attack us when he realizes those weaknesses. Depending on the weaknesses of each person, the devil will try to attack. There are solutions in the Bible to deal with it all. What I want to say here is not about the solution. We need to understand that there are dangers lurking before us. Sometimes a small mistake can lead to huge dangers around us.
The time is near for our Jesus to come into this world. So none of us should fall into sin. We should always try to purify ourselves. We must correct all our mistakes and confess our sins. Don’t fall into any mistake, even if you have some sorrows and disasters in front of you. Until we die we have a chance to come right from any mistake. I will end this blog with an example from bible.
39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”
40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”
42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
Luke 23: 39-43
Let’s keep our eyes and ears open, let’s try to see everything that is before us, let’s live with God, let’s wait for Jesus to come.
