2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
If ever there was a time that people were calling evil good and good evil it is today. People are desiring to live sinful lifestyles and then become angry at those who do not embrace their sin.
Please don't misunderstand me. We are to always have compassion on the lost and even on the wicked, knowing that they need Jesus Christ, but we are not to embrace and encourage their sin.
We must do some self examination in our own lives before we start looking at the sin in other people lives. It is time for us to try to get the things out of our own lives that might keep us from walking daily in the Spirit.
Even the sins we consider small should be confessed and repented of. They might look small to us but they are still sin. God loves you and He wants you to have a special relationship with Him. Remove anything from your life that might hinder that relationship.
