Are you striving for fame, position, wealth and riches, or other great things in life? The counsel of the Lord is: seek them not, but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto. If your goal in life is to acquire great things at the expense of your soul, you shall be of all men most miserable.
Living for Jesus means living the life that fulfils the purpose for which He came and died for. Jesus said, I am the light of the world; and in another verse of Scripture, He said that believers are the light of the world. He has promised that His followers shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. And it is having the light of life in us that lightens up our world - John 8:12; John 5:14.
Beware of ungodly company. It always leads to death and therefore must be avoided. Those who support any ungodly fellowship are calling evil good and will certainly suffer the same punishment with those that are directly involved in evil practices and activities. For instance, there is no difference between those who take pleasure in watching pornographic films and those that acted or directed those films.
After God had revealed to Israel the punishment that would befall them if they failed to obey His commandments, He expected them to be obedient. However, Israel refused to obey the Lord. They soon forgot the word of God and descended further into idolatry. Be warned, and avoid the deadly and devastating consequence of sin and backsliding. The Lord has no pleasure in the death of the wicked, so live as one that can be called home at any time.
The eye is the window of the soul. What you set your eyes upon controls your thoughts and will eventually determine your action. David set his eyes upon the naked body of Uriah's wife and his thoughts were affected leading to the sins of immorality and murder. Be careful of what you set your eyes upon to avoid defilement.
