We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For he called you to share in his Kingdom and glory.
1 Thessalonians 2:12 NLT

As born-again believers, we know what’s right and wrong. The Holy Spirit lives inside of us and we’ll get a conviction when we’re doing or about to do something that displeases God or is not in our best interests.

We can ignore the Holy Spirit and keep doing what we feel like doing or change our ways. If we continue to ignore the Holy Spirit, our soul will get callus and we’ll begin to justify why it’s okay to go against the word of God. That leads to natural consequences like, being emotionally hurt, divorced, sick, or broke.

When God instructs us to live a certain way, He’s not trying to ruin our fun. He knows what’s best for us and He knows what we need. Walk in a manner that’s pleasing to the Lord to bring Him honor and so that we can enjoy this life.
