Set Apart

To be holy, or set-apart, is a call to change. We are to no longer be who we used to be before calling on the name of Christ. To call yourself a Christian implies an initial change of heart, as well as a desire to continue to change! God may love you right where you are, but He definitely doesn't want to leave you there! We continue to grow and change from our old life to then strive for holiness and righteousness as we live out our walk as a Christian. If you have no desire to change from how you were living before - after you've come to Christ, what are you really doing? Does not the thought of Christ dying on the cross for your sin cause you to want to change your life and turn from what you used to do? Who can go on worshipping idols, living in sexual sin, getting drunk, etc. if you have turned to Christ? Am I saying that it's easy to stop sinning? Absolutely not! Even Paul, who wrote a majority of the New Testament, admitted it was a daily struggle. But the desire to NOT sin any longer is going to be evidence of your walk. There is a battle between the flesh and spirit. But if you willingly and unrepentantly keep on sinning you are on dangerous ground. It might be a good time to reevaluate where you really are standing. If you find yourself in a place you don't want to be, and you want to change, turn to Jesus, and let Him work in you. It doesn't take pomp and circumstance to come to Christ. Just simply come to Him. It may not be an easy road, but it is quite the journey.
