Stop, drop, and roll was something we were all taught to do if physically on fire but, stop, drop, and roll has more eternal ramifications that we realize. 

STOP the sin! Realize what you are doing and have been doing is wrong. God knows all and sees all. 1 Corinthians 15:34 tells us: 'Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all.'

'Anyone who continues to live in him will not sin. But anyone who keeps on sinning does not know him or understand who he is.' 1 John 3:6

'Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies. ' Hebrews 10:26-27

'We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.' Romans 3:22-26

Jesus came and died for ours sins and paid the ultimate price. Jesus was and is the once and for all sacrifice and if you repent of your sins and turn from your wicked ways God says "I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds. You will be forgiven! How? Repent and believe in Jesus!

Drop it! Once you realize your sins and wrong doings, drop to your knees, ask for forgiveness (repent), and receive your salvation. Dropping to your knees is an act of surrender, a willingness to be changed. 1 Corinthians 14:25 says 'As they listen, their secret thoughts will be exposed, and they will fall to their knees and worship God, declaring, “God is truly here among you.”' Many people throughout the Bible fell to their knees in prayer and surrender to God. Jesus surrendered and prayed on His knees so should you.

Roll over! Turn from your sinful ways now, you have been forgiven by believing in Jesus. Roll over into a new direction in your life. Roll over and put out the fire of hell that once had you condemned!

'Oh, that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea.' Isaiah 48:18

God wants to roll you into righteousness, love, peace, and patience.

'For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone. ' Romans 5:17-18

Receive it and believe it in your heart that you have triumphed through Jesus Christ! If you are rolled over in the right eternal direction, Don't go back or even look back at your sinful past like Lot's wife did in Genesis 19:26, it will only lead you back into destruction or even death as it did Lot's wife.

'When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.' Ephesians 3:14-21

Its better to know Jesus now because 
stop, drop, and roll doesn't work in hell!

Heavenly Father, We come to you to seek revelation knowledge, understanding, and wisdom you have to offer. Thank you for your Son Jesus Christ, who died for our sins on the cross, and paid the ultimate sacrifice for my sins and ascended to the right hand of the Father. We give thanks and praise to the one who was, is, and is to come. We pray for strength to turn from sin and never look back and that we step into your righteousness, grace, and love. In Jesus mighty name amen!
