Are You an Obedient Disciple of Jesus Christ?

"Let him who means to love life and see good days refrain his lips from speaking guile.  And let him turn away from evil by doing good.  Let him seek peace and pursue it.  For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayers" (1 Peter 3:10-12).   But the face of the Lord is against the following people:

 

•           those who continue to do evil (1 Peter 3:10-12; John 5:29).

•           those who continue to live worldly (Jude 15-19).

•           those who continue to do wrong things.

•           those who continue to say wrong things.

•           those who continue to think wrong things.

•           those who continue to watch wrong things.

•           those who continue to listen to and hear wrong things—in music, TV, movies, jokes (Psalm 11:5).

•           those who continue to hold bitter feelings against others (James 4:11).

•           those who continue to be unforgiving.
