When you walk with God
I am a bit shaken up right now at what I saw this morning. I have a childhood friend who I have known for 20+ years that is like family to me who was by my bank talking to the grass. I know this might sound funny to you but it's really not, it's sad. He is a known heroin user and has struggled with drug addiction his whole life. Surprisingly, he believes in God and has went to church on several different occasions, I have even listened to Christian Rock Music with him before. I thought to myself " well, how can someone who believes in God be strung out on drugs." Well, it's very simple. When you accept Jesus Christ into your heart and you walk with him and then decide to turn your back on him, really bad things will happen to you. God is a king and needs to be obeyed and respected and by choosing to do drugs my friend has put himself and his selfish desires before serving God. That was a big error on his part. I'm not saying that God will not forgive him if he decides to turn his life around because our God is very forgiving, I'm just saying that if my friend continues putting himself first he will end up dead. Yes, it's a very serious offense putting ourselves first.
