Alive or death!
“I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive—but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God.”
Revelation 3:1-2 NLT
We must be careful not to be self-deceiving believing that we enjoy the abundant life when in reality our actions confirm that we are dead.
When we turn away from God, to the point to leave His commandments and do what we want to do, it is then that we are dead in life.
But even in the midst of this death that Jesus gives us hope; encourages us to wake up, to reconsider, He can help us strengthen what little they can still have life in us.
The only requirement to enjoy this resurrection is turning to God through repentance; but it should be a decision made opportunely, when there is still hope.
And you are alive or dead?
