Christians Beware

Believer Beware

The warning from the Apostle John is clear and persistent, “Be careful you are not led astray.” Like a good shepherd trying to lead his flock into the right and good pastures, John is concerned about the very real potential of any one of us choosing the wrong paths; being allured by the newest and popular ideas; turning from the Lord who loves and desires our best. We all know and can name friends who used to follow Christ, and for one reason or another have found the Christian way no longer appealing or necessarily best. Maybe you are heading there even now. Please reconsider. Let’s heed the Scriptures’ many warnings, and by God’s grace, choose the pastures of life that Christ has for us.

Messing around
Can a man hold fire against his chest and not be burned? Can he walk on hot coals and not blister his feet? So it is with the man who commits adultery. He shall not go unpunished for this sin.

Proverbs 6:27–29

 

Stiff-arming the Spirit
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Ephesians 4:30

Unread Bibles
We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

Hebrews 2:1

Flirting with error
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

Matthew 7:15 (ESV)

Denying Christ
But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.

Matthew 10:33

Ignoring warnings
Cease to hear instruction, my son, and you will stray from the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 19:27 (ESV)
