I Kings 10:9 And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
When God’s people forsook Him then He brought evil on them. They didn’t lose their salvation. They didn’t quit being God’s people or His children. They did lose His blessings and receive His discipline.
Do you understand that when you, as a child of God, do not honor Him you will be disciplined. He chastises all that are His. If you have not been chastised then you are not His.
Love Him. Thank Him for His grace. But live for Him. Realize that all our lives are to be lived for Him. That doesn’t mean that we live in fear but that we live out what He has put in us.
This was written about the nation and not the individual but it still applies indirectly to us.
If you get into sin do not think that because you are saved that you will escape its consequences.
