I have an acquaintance who is a believer, but is living in sin. I hurt for her, because she thinks she is okay, and can go on fellowshipping with God unhindered. Satan has deceived her.
Have you ever lived in willful sin? I have, and I wanted to die. I knew I was living a lie. I sang praises and prayed for others, I even read my Bible every day, but my heart was stained with guilt. I begged God to intervene, so I could be free. Finally, He (lovingly) slapped my face when a true friend told me I was sinning and I needed to STOP. What a relief to weep and repent at the Father’s knees. Although my tears were full of grief for the pain I had caused my Father, myself and others, I rejoiced in His freedom and the cleansing of Jesus' blood.
For days afterward I felt like I was soaring on a star. That was years ago, yet I still thank my Father for His grace and mercy and kindness. I pray my friend will find the same favor. If only she will realize she needs it, and seek the only One who can help...
