Unfortunately, I have witnessed this happen to some people. They were delivered, set free and given a fresh start but simply didn’t take advantage of the opportunity. They didn’t want to be controlled by the devil but didn’t want live for God either. They rejected Jesus and chose to pursue a friendship with the world.
Being cleansed doesn’t mean being filled. When you don’t receive Christ and choose to fill your life with ungodly things, sin is going to move back in and things will be worse off than they were before.
“When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.” – Matthew 12:43-45
Jesus wants to do more that just sweep your house clean, He wants to occupy every room and dwell in it. Invite Him in and receive everlasting freedom.
