STOP MAKING EXCUSES

“The LORD our God has secrets that He has not revealed to anyone. We are not accountable for them, but we who know Him are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us. We are responsible to be doers of all of His instructions and not deceiving ourselves by being just hearers. Deut. 29:29 and James 1:22

It is amazing how much time and energy some saints spend on trying to get knowledge that doesn’t do anything for spiritual growth; knowledge that does absolutely nothing to make us more like our Lord Jesus.

Knowledge that the Holy Spirit can use to make more and more of Christ show through us while our humanness shows less and less, just don’t seem to be as interesting to many of us.

Knowledge that the Holy Spirit can use to help us think like our Lord thinks; to help us come to the place where we want to please the Father ONLY and not ourselves; to help us lose the obvious love that many have for this world system and it’s things of fleshly appeal.

The Heart’s desire of our gracious, loving and patient heavenly Father, NOT being fulfilled, such as: Unity of the faith; Oneness of heart, soul and mind; the Love Lifestyle that shows the world that we belong to Him; and the power of our God and Father, through His Holy Spirit in us, to defeat and overcome the flesh and the Devil – all seem to be OK with modern day Christians who act religious, but reject the power of the Holy Spirit that can make them truly Christ-like.

They come up with all kinds of human reasons and excuses as to why our ALL Powerful God and Father can’t achieve these things in us today. This brings shame to the Name of Jesus: the Name that is above All Names and the Name to which every knee will bow.

Jesus replied, “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Mar 7:6

Change your mind about your love for this world and the things that are in it! Stop making excuses and pray “not my will Lord, but Yours be done!” Return to your first Love.
