”You were running the race so well. Who has held you back from following the truth? 8 It certainly isn’t God, for he is the one who called you to freedom. 9 This false teaching is like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough!”
There is one thing you should never forget as a child of God. That the very moment you became a Christian, you automatically became a threat to the devil and his kingdom.
Hence, the devil is after your soul not necessarily your possessions. Because you will definitely leave them(your possessions) all on earth.
But the amazing trick is that the devil uses your desire for these possessions to lure you away from God. In order to capture your soul.
This is why, you need to always work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Oh!, how sad it is to gain the world and its possessions and lose your soul in the end.
Every day we live, we fond ourselves getting close to our end of life here on earth. This is why its important to set your priorities right. On heavenly things not earthly gains only. For that’s the sure way to inherit the kingdom of God. Selah!
