I spent this morning studying 1 Corinthians chapter 15. I found three verses to speak out to me and I think this revelation is one of my favorite.
Verse 32: if after the manner of men I have fought with beasts in Ephesus; what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? LET US EAT AND DRINK; FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.
I hear this everyday! YOLO- You Only Live Once...I admit I lived this way, thinking I should have fun while I could. But if you have God in your heart these things would NOT be fun. Love knows no evil and would not welcome temptation. If i am a Love-ing servant of God, then I know better!
33: Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
My mother always told me, " if you hang with don't, you'll get fleas". Is this true? My experience tells me YES. And if you look hard enough you'll send that everyone tends to behave like those they surround themselves with.
Love begets love! If you want a life of sin, heartache, and troubles- live YOLO, like you'll only live once. If you want a life of love, honor, and blessings- live YOLE, like you'll only live eternally.
Verse 34: Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
Open your eyes!!! Stop sinning. Some don't know about God. But, YOU! You do...and you should be ashamed because you do know better. (I imagine God weeping for his children, much like we would our own child had they decided to choose the wrong path against all we've taught them.
