Your daily activities change the way you think. If you spend the day busy, busy, busy, with all the things of life and don’t spend anytime in the Word of God, Sharing the Gospel, Praying, Alone time with just you and God, You will have the thought of this world. Your ways will reflect those things and will not reflect God and His ways.
Your motive must be right. Don’t change just because you think you will go to hell. Change because it causes your relationship with God to be less than it could be. It does not make Him love you less. He has not changed, you have.
You have neglected...
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.
[ Do Not Neglect Salvation ] Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him...
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
We neglect the weightier matters.... We are so consumed with our lives and what we want, that we leave justice, mercy, faith and much more undone.
We only see the things right in front of us. Even if we see the people in our own little circle, our focus still becomes too small. We need to ask God to show us His ways, His Mercy, His will and follow that instead of our own thinking and ways.
If you are doing that, great. But I know I have had many times where all I could focus on is the bill that is not paid, or the job, or my pain & wants, and I have left the weightier matters undone. My relationship with God is more than important than my work for God. Yes we still do good works, but we don’t leave the other to do it.
As we walk in right relationship we will do those good works with right motives.
So cling to Him. Cling to His Word. Cling to His ways. Don’t get caught up in this temporal world.
