Your Excuses May Be Killing You

202
We can make all the excuses in the world for our sins, and we can prove ourselves to humans whereby we get their love, respect, acceptance, and approval, but at the end of the day the one that we stand before is not the world. We will stand before the Lord and have to give account. As the world ever worsens in its wickedness, and its standards become darker by the day, it becomes easier for us to justify our wrongdoing when we use the world’s standards as our measuring stick. When Jesus Christ confronted the Pharisees for coveting, greed, and placing such a high priority on their wealth, and they responded with derision, He told them expressly that their self-justification would amount to nothing because the abomination of their sin was clear as day in the eyes of the Lord who knows the hearts of all humankind.

Whatever it is that you think you might be getting away with right now, whatever it is that you refuse to let go, whatever it is that you have convinced yourself is okay because just about everybody else is doing it, whatever it is you hang onto for dear life with the consolation that you are earning the approval of the people in your life, whatever it is that you’re doing that makes you feel like you’re fitting in really well with the world, whatever it is that is deep down in your heart that you believe nobody in the world can see, repent of your sins and turn unto the living God. Through faith in Jesus the Christ who died on the cross to pay the penalty for the sins you have refused to let go, you can confess and be forgiven. You can receive the promise of everlasting life. But your confession and God’s forgiveness are not the finish line. They are the starting point. Walk the way the Lord is calling. Walk in His ways. Walk in His light. Make your heart pure before Him, and commit your life unto Him. Any pleasure that you find in the temporal, it is temporal. Your eternity is at stake. And eternity is forever. 

Luk 16:13  No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 
Luk 16:14  And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. 
Luk 16:15  And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. (bold and underlining added)
