What side of the world do you want to live in? Today we live in a world where the world promises us that if we pick their side we will have fun all the time and life will be grand. Yet when we look around the world seems to be in more turmoil than ever before. On social media, people are hateful, disrespectful to others, inciting people to violence against those they disagree with. They have fallen into the trap that Paul wrote about in Galatians 5:19-21.
“Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Instead the should focus on reclaiming their soul and inviting the Holy Spirit in because as Paul continued in verse 22, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,”
When you pick a side in the war for your soul, pick the side of Jesus.
