So yes it is important to God how we live. But oh thank God he sent His Son to die for us, which in turn gives us the help of the Holy Spirit helping us to live right.
We place our faith in what Jesus has done and the Holy Spirit helps us live out the Christian life. He is ever conforming us to the image of Christ and Christ did…
Romans 8:29  … he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son…

Acts 10:38
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Jesus went around doing good and healing those who are oppressed…so should we live to do good and through Jesus lives will be healed of the oppression of satan.
When we receive what Jesus has done, we will reach out with a cup of cold water, we will feed the hungry, help the poor, and so much more. As we are led by the Spirit, live the way He shows you…

Christ lives in us and we live in Him!!! Praise God
