MAKE THAT DECISION NOW: People in my community.

"I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep Your righteous judgments" - Psalm 119:106
.
For by grace you're saved through faith, and that not of yourself: it is the gift of God (Eph. 2:8). But to remain saved there's a role that you must play (Phil. 2:12b).
.
The role you must play is of making a firm decision. It is one thing to know the Ten commandments and it's another thing to keep all the commandments. But it's quite unfortunate that many don't keep what they know or practice what they learn.
.
The Psalmist sworn and made it a matter of must to keep God's righteous judgments (Ps. 119:106). What have you decided to do as touching God's law?
.
God's grace cannot help you overcome sin when you're still rubbing shoulders with it. But when you're ready to leave it and you have decided, then His grace will be sufficient for you.
.
Joseph decided to keep His righteous judgment, this was why he fled his master's wife sexual advance (Gen. 39:3). But brother Samson failed to make that decision.
.
You can't serve God if you have not made the decision to do so, let alone keep His commandments. Joshua told all the people of Israel that as for him and his family, they have decided to serve God (Josh. 24:15).
.
Examine your life dear reader, have you decided to be His kingdom law abiding citizen or you're living a lawless life? Are you putting one leg into sin and the other in righteousness? No room for living double lives!
.
God will judge all acts of lawlessness that everyone has committed while they're on earth, whether you serve Him (Matt. 7:21-23) or not.
.
Until you personally make that decision to keep His righteous judgments, you won't be enabled to keep them.
.
Don't forget that a father cannot carry his child who has not make the decision to stretch out his/her hands but he/she is still using those hands to play in the mud. God can only give you the power to keep His commandments when you have made up your mind to keep them.
.
Until your heart is made up to abide in His word, you'll live a lawless life. Make that decision now before it'll be too late!
