When I was in college, I won a small cash prize in a lotto game. My college tuition was fully paid, and therefore I had the freedom to do whatever I wished to do with the money. I went to a local video game store, and purchased several hundred dollars worth of video games. By the end of the week, the money was completely dissipated.
I don't know what I would do if I won the same amount of money today. I do know, however, that being in a video game store is no longer as thrilling as it once was. I now have more mature interests. If you have been in God’s kingdom for the past several years, and yet have failed to mature spiritually, you are not likely to be among the chosen in God’s kingdom.
It is more likely that you are still listening to the devil’s prompts, still doing whatever the voices in your head tell you to do, still saying your prayers in English, and still committing every sin you have always committed. When you come to the point at which you need everything to change, the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God will carry you to the place of repentance.
He will carry you through repentance, and take you to eternity's gates. He will take you into eternity. The Lord God Almighty is true and faithful. The Lord God Almighty is true. The Lord God Almighty is faithful.
