Bible verse in Yoruba
Galatia 05:24 – Awọn ti nṣe ti Kristi Jesu ti kàn ara mọ agbelebu ti on ti ifẹ ati ifẹkufẹ rẹ̀.
Key: You can’t stand inside a house and stay outside too, so is it with being a Christian.
You can’t claim you love God and still commit sin. Being a Christian entails letting go of the works of flesh, of sin.
A partial Christian is not a Christian. A partial child of God is not a child of God. Just one sin, one sin that you consider being little or unimportant automatically disqualifies you of being a child of God. God is holy, God is pure.
You are someone’s child because you show similarities with the person and so does God. You are a child of God if you show similarities with God and the only similarity is holiness. A little stain, a sin, disqualifies you from being a child of God.
There is no little sin. Every sin committed leaves a stain on your garment, every sin committed corrupts the Holy nature that you should have. Nail that sin to the cross today and don’t look back.
Reflection: Jesus went to the Cross for every mistake a person could ever make, for every sin a person can ever commit. Therefore, there is no sin he can’t forgive.
