Don't Turn Away

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel-- not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.  Galatians 1:6-7

If we are not careful, we can quickly change sides or be transferred to another place– we are reverted from the One who called us.

God is the One who draws you close to Him. Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:44 It is by invitation from the Heavenly Father only that you come to Jesus and receive everlasting life in His Kingdom.

The Lord made you, has excellent plans for you, knows what you have gone through, what you will go though, and how you will handle it when you are going through it.

Don’t turn away and go back to the familiar things you knew before. They didn’t work then, and they won’t work now. They may have been comfortable, but they are not effective.

We can’t be like the Egyptians who wanted to turn back to their old way of life because it was something they knew and thought was better.  There may have been familiarity there, but it was bondage.

People can be easily persuaded to turn away from the right path. They go with the flow and tend to veer to what seems to be the easy road. If it sounds good, it must be good. This is not always true.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.  James 1:8

Don’t turn away from the One who called you don't be  lead astray. Stay in the promises of God by knowing Him. Read your Bible, study His Word– get to know your Lord and Savior. Stick with Him and know the Truth. Don’t give in to other peoples ways, beliefs or teachings just because they are appealing or sound right.

My son, watch your step before the Lord and the king, and don't associate with radicals. For you will go down with them to sudden disaster, and who knows where it all will end? Proverbs 24:21-22

There’s only one way– the true way. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the Truth. ...Repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1:15

If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; he will not resent it. James 1:5

God is always willing to guide you in every area of your life, He tells us to ask Him. Don’t turn away from the One who loves you.
