Without Excuse

Standard

Devotion:  Romans 1:20-21

I am too busy.  I’m feeling poorly.  I’m working on building a future for my family.  I ask “What has God ever done for me? Thanks, but that’s just not  something I believe in. These are all very familiar excuses for not seeking God, nor going to His house on Sunday.

We can give a million excuses for avoiding, doing the right thing, seeking God’s face, listening for HIs voice, reading HIs Word or acting on His commandments.

He declares the truth and we are to obey quickly and without excuse.

The Bible, God’s Word is officially, the absolute truth.  Our Father’s world declares HIs glory.  Every man is without excuse. Each one dwells in the beauty and the majesty of the world, in which he dwells.  We can try to make any and every excuse, but these excuses will never hold up under the mandate of our Lord.  We are soldiers in training both now and until God takes us home to heaven.  We move about freely, observing people operating in the Father’s mountains, near the oceans and waterfalls, as well as the desserts and flatlands.  He created those for us to enjoy.

Here’s the truth,from Romans 1:21 “For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Claiming to be wise they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling moral man and birds and animals and creeping things.”

The heavens declare the glory of God. We must search out

Those who deny the existence of God are either physically blind to the world; in which they live, or they are ignorant of the Lord’s Creation.  People try to ignore the Lord’s eternal power and Godhead.  They may choose to look the other way by virtue of their ridiculously ignorant beliefs but will never get away with refuting the truth, when they stand before God.  They will not be able to open their mouths against an Omnicient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent God.

Prayer in Motion:

Lord,  how can we ignore so great a Savior?  How can we possibly accept the fallacy of evolution, after observing the lilies of the field and how they neither toil nor spin, how can we begin to make excuses toward God?
