Maybe I am being too black and white.... but my heart is aching for many people choosing obvious sin on a regular basis (lifestyle) and then wondering why God's doesn't answer their prayer. Does it make sense based on this:
If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear.
1 Corinthians 6:9-12New King James Version (NKJV)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Glorify God in Body and Spirit
12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
The time is VERY short and it is time to get REAL serious with the Lord Jesus. Does this resonate with anyone else? PLEASE hear what the Bible has to say to us....we are to be His Bride -"without spot or wrinkle" Lord Jesus, bring on the fuller's soap and the hot iron in our lives...
