Are You Sure?

When you stand before God, how will you explain your support for Abortion, when God show you all the aborted babies that you supported (via your support for the Democratic party)?

When you stand before God, how will you explain your support for leaders who have overwhelmingly shown their disdain for God?

When you stand before God, what excuse will you use for not speaking out on the things that matters the most to God?

When you stand before God, do you really think that your excuses will matter to Him? Do you think that you’re going to be able to con your way past His all-knowing judgment seat?

When you stand before God, how will you explain how you got more upset at this post, than you did at your relationship with God?

Are you SURE that you won’t hear Jesus say, “depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 23:7) ?

You better make darn sure. It will be too late once you die to find out how wrong you were.

Isn’t Sin More Fun?

The question caught my attention. I know all too well what sin can do, and does do to a person. But is sin itself more fun? More fun than what? It seems that we struggle as much as when we don’t sin than when we actually do.

I’ve done many stupid things in my life, as we all have. But the stupid things have their consequences…falling asleep behind the wheel wasn’t that great of a feeling when I rear ended someone, especially when it came down to court dates, and all the suffering I caused my mother. I’ve gone horribly wrong with my finances (greed, and not being a good steward), so the consequences, as one can imagine, is that I struggle every day. Getting involved with a woman was fun, until she broke my heart when she annouced her marriage to someone else (Thank God in the end…but really??!!!)

No, sin definitely is not more fun. It can break a Christian man’s heart when he realizes that although he has chased after God, he has failed! And the realization is that even when the Christian has found God, there still remains sin in his life. And that sin is definitely horrible to deal with!

But thank God there is still grace! I fall on a daily basis. Sometimes I face periods where I don’t feel God at all. I know He is still there, but at the same time I keep reaching up and out for Him. And the act of reaching up and out consumes me.

But sin still holds me down. It beckons to me “Come and dance with me”. And like a mindless zombie…I dance the dance well.

To become a spotless bride is difficult. But it’s even more difficult when you play with God, knowing all the time that you shouldn’t.
