What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
It is astounding that the God who is great enough to have made the heavens can take notice of mere man. But He goes beyond taking notice, He is mindful of man, he cares for him. This is why I’ll never understand why we still sin so badly as Christians. No, we’ll never be perfect – but aren’t we at least supposed to try?
Daniel 9:5 says, ‘We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments…’
How did we get so blinded by the entertainment of the world and church that we don’t remember the burden? Do you remember what conviction feels like?
1Peter 4:17 says, ‘For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?’
Are you so holy that you’ve gone beyond these trivial things? After all, you’re so far past such mundane ideology. The Church has drifted away from such things.
I see these things every day from confessed Christians. They allow sin into their lives constantly; secular movies & music, television, alcohol…anything that entertains is something that diverts your attention from the Lord and what He wants from you.
Daniel said, ‘We have sinned and committed iniquity’.
Does anything trouble you? Are you so busy that nothing seems amiss?
As a Christian, we are to be equipped to witness when the Lord tells us to and to whomever He wants.
How can you look the other way? What if that was a test from God to check you spiritual temperature?
Hebrews 13:2 says, ‘Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.’
Life is God-breathed. Life has an eternity. Life is beautiful. Life should never be wasted on the things of the world to justify the ungodly.
