For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. - Eph. 2:6
Taking a leap of faith to experience the new life in Christ is not akin to making a spectacle of yourself. There are actually no downsides to saying good riddance to sin and worldliness. When you throw the devil and worldly affections overboard, God welcomes you onboard on a divine flight that would keep you above the devil. And having Jesus as the Captain of the flight, signifies that the devil has lost the power to make you buckled down under misery, fear and oppression. The flight with Christ is the sure journey you need to embark on in order to have a right standing with God, experience overflowing joy and peace with God.
If you have been rubbing shoulders with the devil, and playing to his gratification, be not deceived that he is leading you down to a rough and horrible destination. Any contract a man signs up with the devil cannot leave him uncontaminated. Do you know that living up to the expectations of the devil while breaking with the principles and precepts of God would corrupt and distort God's programme for your life and would also withhold God's support for your well being?
It is instructive to note that if you don't desire to wind up with the devil in eternal damnation, you need to hang up on him now. It is better to step out on the devil, when you turn a 360 to live for God than to step up to fulfill the demands of the devil. Make no mistake about it, juggling Christianity and a life of iniquity will get you nowhere near the gate of heaven. Bear in mind that the redemption of your soul is the end of the journey with the devil and the beginning of another, which is an incurable commitment to walk with God. If you are not on course with Jesus, why not make a quick switch. Jesus is willing and ready to give you your boarding pass into a new flight full of glorious experiences, if you would forfeit the pleasure of sin. Don't wait to jump in at the eleventh hour; tomorrow might be late in the day.
