Ephesians 5:15-16 So be careful how you live. Don't live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
The power of sin has been nullified through Jesus, the life-giving spirit has freed us from the power of sin. Romans 8:5 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.
You can't be filled with the Holy Spirit and do what is contrary to it.
You cannot continue as normal after receiving the grace of salvation. There are things no matter how good Satan has packaged them, move away from them. Romans 6:20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
Warm Christians are dangerous. When you go back to your ways, it’s like nullifying all that the Cross has achieved. Revelation 3:15-16 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning. James 4:17 Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
No matter how much you can speak to a person about Christ, if the spirit is not involved, you are waisting your time. I used to enjoy criticizing Christian until one day God decided himself to end it. John 8:9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
Sin is spiritual therefore requires spiritual intervention. Sometimes you hear people commenting about spiritual things when they are not spiritual themselves and act like they know it all. Time will come when Jesus will take control of their lives, one just hope it’s not too late for some. John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Saul thought he’s got everything under control not knowing that he will hit a forced stop in his life. When all you think you knew becomes a lie. Acts 9:3-4 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
The fact that I don’t drink or smoke does not make me a better judge. All judgement is reserved for Jesus who died on the cross. Romans 2:1 You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things.
I might not smoke or drink but have a heart full of unforgiveness, hatred and jealousy. All sins can be forgiven except the one that leads to death. There are drunkerds who will receive salvation and come and overtake us in this walk.
Matthew 12:32 NLT
 Anyone who speaks against the Son of Man can be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, either in this world or in the world to come.
