Well, we live our lives according to His will and not our own, and we make Him the Lord of our lives instead of continuing to be our own. Remember: “Thy will be done,” not “My will be done.” Pray and ask Him what it is He created you to do… follow His Holy Spirit.
1 Peter 4:1-3
Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.
– This is what He calls all true believers to do. Of course, we aren’t ever going to be perfect on this side of things. Yes, we all struggle with sin and there is grace if we mess up, but we should not abuse God’s grace by willfully living in sin…
There is a difference in the heart between those who sin willfully, those who struggle, and those who are still searching for the truth:
Christians struggle with sin because we love God and don’t want to hurt or our relationship with Him.
The world doesn’t struggle with sin because it simply doesn’t care about God or His ways.
People that refuse God live their lives according to their own will, as if God is going to have to answer to them one day.
As for Non-Christians who don’t yet know The Lord but eventually will, God gives them grace in the journey, along with mercy, forgiveness and redemption when they do turn to Him.
Ultimately, if they too refuse God, He still has the last word.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.’”
*Sadly it will be too late for those who reject God’s plan of salvation here on earth and then die without Christ.
But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
