Our behavior today tells the tale

Strong words today from Peter:

We may testify about the day Jesus saved us, but our behavior today tells the tale. If we are consumed with the world’s self-indulgences, we are no longer slaves to Christ but have become, once again, slaves to sin and corruption.

“You are a slave to whatever controls you. When people escape from the wicked ways of the world by learning about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up with sin and become its slave again, they are worse off than before. It would be better if they had never known the right way to live than to know it and then reject the holy commandments that were given to them. They make these proverbs come true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit,’ and ‘A washed pig returns to the mud.'” (2 Peter 2:19b-22 NLT’96)

Let us die to self, brothers and sisters, and wholeheartedly pursue the Kingdom above all else.
