Take captive every thought

There is a reason that the Bible tells us to take captive every thought to the obedience of Christ in 2 Corinthians 10:2. Just because something feels good, doesn’t mean that you should do it. I remember that saying ‘if it feels good, do it’. Not true! You better examine if what you feel like doing is spiritually sound. If it’s not, you better not do it. God gives us the manual for a reason. Some things only feel good for a short time and then it’s bondage.

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Just because a lightning strike doesn’t kill you instantly when you sin, doesn’t mean you escaped death. None of us are going to escape death. Is the life you are living really worth trading for a moment of feelings? I want to make the most of the time I have left in this life. God has a plan for all of us. I don’t want to waste my life going by my feelings and emotions to make bad decision after bad decision. That’s my choice. You have a choice too. Your choices determine your destiny.
