Be Careful How You Live

Hebrews 12:12-16 (ERV)

“You have become weak, so make yourselves strong again. Live in the right way so that you will be saved and your weakness will not cause you to be lost. 

Try to live in peace with everyone. And try to keep your lives free from sin. Anyone whose life is not holy will never see the Lord. Be careful that no one fails to get God’s grace. Be careful that no one loses their faith and becomes like a bitter weed growing among you. Someone like that can ruin your whole group. Be careful that no one commits sexual sin. And be careful that no one is like Esau and never thinks about God. As the oldest son, Esau would have inherited everything from his father. But he sold all that for a single meal.”

In this verse the Lord talks about the way we should live and how we should be careful how we live. I always say “we” because if I just point at you then you might get the feeling I am attacking you, but I am not. I too have to learn this lesson as well.

So I saw the word as points laid out for us very clearly….

  • Try to live in peace with everyone.
  • And try to keep your lives free from sin. Anyone whose life is not holy will never see the Lord.
  • Be careful that no one fails to get God’s grace.
  • Be careful that no one loses their faith and becomes like a bitter weed growing among you. Someone like that can ruin your whole group.
  • Be careful that no one commits sexual sin.
  • And be careful that no one is like Esau and never thinks about God. As the oldest son, Esau would have inherited everything from his father. But he sold all that for a single meal.

In this life, this one life we have, we need to hope that it’s possible to live more faithful to Jesus.

    Good posting. Read the very last chapter of Revelation and tell me what you see. Remember that this is after hell and death are cast into the lake of fire. Who gets to go into the city where God dwells?

      Rev 22:3 “Nothing that God judges guilty will be there in that city. The throne of God and the Lamb will be in the city. God’s servants will worship him.” – So the innocent will be there. His servants!

      I see hope and the city of God! Faithfulness throughout the whole city. Faith! I see Peace, Love not from this world!
