Friends, I did not share any of the above, to influence or scare you! Still, I need you to know, so that you are not deceived; my God will not be mocked. Don't be misled by anyone, for no one will make a fool out of God. What ever one plants... he will also harvest.
When selfishness, greed or lust, is planted and God is ignored, all one will harvest is a crop of weeds! That is all anyone will have to show for their actions... "weeds... and finally death!
It is only when the seeds of faith, hope and love are planted, and then yielded to growth work, by God's Holy Spirit, that anyone will harvest a crop of real life... eternal life!
God's desire for His children is to be totally devoted, and totally "on fire" for His good work. We can never have it our own way, flirting with the world one day and praising God the next. Our God is a fiercely jealous lover, however the love he gives us is far superior to anyone or anything we can find here on earth!
We must be faithful to God, dear friends! His Word says, Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. James 4:4
If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. We can't have it both ways.
