- How do we live like Christ
- What makes God angry and what should we be living like?
- How do we not think about earthly things?
What also scares me is that the sinful things listed here are things that I have done and are still doing in my life.
Anger, Rage, Malicious Behaviour, Slander, Dirty Language. No hope for me i guess !
But you know what, God knows this. He knows that we are tempted every minute of the day to act these sinful deeds, to me, what he is asking here is for us to get away from them. We are not going to be able to stop them immediately, because that's human nature, but if we trust in God and allow Him in our life to change that, He Will! Looking at this then, it just makes me wonder how much I have actually 'let' God in my life as a christian.
God wants to to be humble, patient, kind to others and have mercy on others. I personally find it extremely difficult to forgive others that offend me, but in Verse 13 its says that we have to.
I don't know, all of this has to be done with Gods help. We cannot accomplish this on our own. We are sinning humans and the grace of God is there to help us and lead us into a new direction, slowly changing our life for the better.
Bless You All
Question: How many of these sinful deeds have you done in your life, have you been able to stop any of them or lessen how many times you act upon them...With our without Gods help?
