Our Will To Sin or To Be Redeemed

In verses 17 and 19 the use of the word "will" indicates a definite decision choosing to act in a specified manner. It is important to recognize that there is actually very little about which we do not make deliberate decisions, as we go through our daily lives, including deciding to choose to commit the sins on which we think and in which we indulge ourselves, against God, others, and ourselves. 

God's response to our habitual sin is plain and understandable. Many, in our modern society, fail to teach others or learn for themselves that there are always consequences for every act, whether we see the fruit of our actions in this life or we see them sorted out at God's Final Judgment. God is not bent of punishing or destroying people, but on redeeming them if they choose to be saved. God wants us to choose Him, choose His ways, and choose to repent and walk with Him, for our own good.

Jeremiah 6:17-19
17  Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19  Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it. 

Have you doubts about prophecies of who the Messiah is? Look here
Have you doubts about what Christ Jesus and the Bible say about Him? Was He God or a liar?
Have you doubts or concerns about your sin? Look at God's plan to redeem you.

May God bless you to make your peace with Him, for He offers you eternal security and peace, IF you will choose Him and His plan.
