Turning From Our Wicked Ways – God Says So!
In His Word, God is telling us to be turning from our wickedness and turning to Him.
But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. – Ezek. 18:21″
But that’s not the ONLY place He makes this point. 2 Chron. 7:14 says:
if My people shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways. Then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land”…..
God SO stresses obedience to His Word, but He is also telling us to be turning ourselves away from the world’s systems, their ways of doing things!
After all, when He called each of us to Him, He also called us away from the world. He has a mission for each of us, and it is SO important that we seek His face AND turn away from our sins! Anything short of that is basically tying God’s hands, which stops Him from using us to do what He has called us to do!
So why waste yourselves with the pleasures of the world? Turn to God and be doing what pleases Him! And you will see what He can do!
