Thin Line Between Life And Death

There's a thin line between life and death, heaven and hell, good and evil. One of the craziest stories in the Bible is how God made a beautiful earth with everything He wanted and just like that it was ruined.
Genesis 1
Genesis 2
Genesis 3
So Earth was just nothing and God fixed it up all nice and even made humans to inhabit the land. The Lord gave them instructions and they did exactly what the Lord said not to and they changed mankind forever. There’s a thin line between life and death. Adam’s sin allowed sin into the whole world.
Romans 5:12-19
So Adam is the reason that we are/were sinners but thankfully God sent Jesus to fix what Adam did. No, sin isn’t gone because of what Jesus did but His dying on the cross for us makes those who repent and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior right with God. Adam’s sin brought punishment(death) to all, but Christ’s righteousness makes men right with God so they can live. Satan, the accuser wants our sins to be counted against us but once you’re saved you’re no longer guilty of your sins. The devil thought that when Jesus was on the cross it was the end, but little did he know that it was the beginning of salvation to all who trust in Christ to take away their sins. (Colossians 1:20-23- It was through what His Son did that God cleared a path for everything to come to him—all things in heaven and on earth—for Christ’s death on the cross has made peace with God for all by His blood. This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were His enemies and hated Him and were separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions, yet now He has brought you back as His friends. He has done this through the death on the cross of His own human body, and now as a result Christ has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are standing there before Him with nothing left against you—nothing left that He could even chide you for; the only condition is that you fully believe the Truth, standing in it steadfast and firm, strong in the Lord, convinced of the Good News that Jesus died for you, and never shifting from trusting Him to save you. This is the wonderful news that came to each of you and is now spreading all over the world. And I, Paul, have the joy of telling it to others.)

One thing in the Bible that I don't hear get talked about a lot is King Saul's death.
1 Samuel 28
1 Samuel 31
We don't realize that some things we do can be the end of us. Saul kept being disobedient to God and then decided to speak to the dead. Mediums participate in witchcraft and Saul knew better than to do that. Not only did he die, but he committed suicide. Saul is no different than a lot of people though, God gives us a specific task and then we only do half of what He says, He tells us to do something and we just ignore what He says. If I do find myself falling short in the same area I really give myself a talk like “what if you keep sinning and you end up dying. Would that sin be worth it?” God gives chances but He will only give so many. We want to keep on testing sin when Jesus has already paid the price. We don't have to live a sinful life after being saved. The Good News wasn't preached for us just to hear it and ignore it. We don't get saved just to go back and live in sin again.

Luke 23:1-43
So two criminals were up there on crosses with Jesus and because the guy called on Jesus’ name he was saved. There’s a thin line between life and death, the fact that people can get saved on their deathbed is amazing to me. You can live a life of crime and being evil but if you call on Jesus’ name right before you die you will be saved. I’m not saying this so you can live a life of sin and then wait until you’re about to die to finally get saved I’m just saying that just goes to show how much God really loves us. It doesn’t matter what you did in your past anyone can come to God.

1 John 3:1-9
Remember that not everyone who says they’re a Christian is really one. God’s children obey Him.
1 John 1:5-10

Romans 8:1-14
Many times as Christians we slip up and start condemning ourselves to hell but remember that there is no condemnation for those in Christ. Hell is for unrepentant sin, hell is for the unbeliever. Hell is for those who have never accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. I'm not saying that sin is okay but if you do sin repent and figure out the reason why you're falling short to prevent it from happening again. For example say you're angry and you start cussing someone out does that mean you're going to hell? No. I always tell people there's a difference between those who are truly following Christ and living a godly life and those who have never accepted Jesus and repented. Habitually sinning and slipping up are two different things. The saint and the sinner are not the same. Yes, we repent even after salvation but that doesn't mean someone isn't saved because they have to repent. You can live in peace as a believer because Jesus died for your sins so that you don't have to! You no longer have to follow your old sinful nature, but as you continue to be led by the Holy Spirit you will please God.

Romans 6:1-14
After you've been saved you are no longer a slave to sin, you're no longer in the dominion of sin and sin no longer has you in its power. So why keep sinning if you don't have to, you don't have to give into your bodies sinful desires. As I continue to maintain self control and discipline my flesh I find myself falling short less and less. You wanna know why? It's because I'm free now, after salvation anytime I sinned was because I wanted to. Right after the thought comes in your head to do xyz ask yourself if it's worth it and since the answer is no because sin will never be worth it, don't do it and you'll also find yourself falling short less and less. I know that sin grieves God so I try my best not to hurt Him. A lot of people have that mindset that "God will forgive me anyway" but I don't think people realize that if you're thinking like that God won't even forgive you if He knows you're not sorry. Remember that God looks at our hearts and checks our motives. (Romans 2:16- The day will surely come when at God’s command Jesus Christ will judge the secret lives of everyone, their inmost thoughts and motives; this is all part of God’s great plan, which I proclaim.) Repentance is sincere regret or remorse and when you're truly sorry you'll try your best not to do it again. When you get saved you're now a new creation in Christ. You need to let go of your old desires and allow God to make you in His image.
Romans 6:15-23
We get to choose our own master! Free will is the choice to either serve God or Satan. A lot of people don't believe that if they're not obeying God they're obeying the devil, there's literally no in between, no other way to put it. There's two dominions, you're either in the dominion of sin or in the dominion of righteousness. You can choose sin which equals death or obedience which equals salvation. Before you get saved you're a slave to sin, but after salvation you're free and no longer a slave. Eternity is FOREVER. You're either in hell forever or heaven forever. A lot of people think that sin is no big deal or that there's big sins and also little sins that God overlooks but that's just not how God works. Who are we to say what's a big deal to Him and what's not when He already told us that He hates it. (Romans 2:3- Do you think that God will judge and condemn others for doing them and overlook you when you do them, too?) One saying that's so true is people do so much for sin but sin never returns the favor. People can make excuses for their sin all they want but the wages of sin is still death. It's like having a friend you know is doing you wrong but you keep making excuses for them. (Romans 6:23- For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.) Ask yourself: Is your master God or Satan? Are you in the dominion of sin or righteousness?

(3 John 1:11- Dear friend, don’t let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do what is right prove that they are God’s children; and those who continue in evil prove that they are far from God.)
