If you are in Christ, the bible needs to be sufficient for you. Whether we believe it’s sufficient or not, doesn’t change the truth that it is.
Whether we believe God at his word or not, doesn’t change that His word is inherent and the only source of truth.
The bible reminds us that it would be better for us to be cold then to be lukewarm. Choose this day whom you will serve.
“So because you are lukewarm - neither hot nor cold— I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” (Rev. 3:16)
Too often, Christians today become lukewarm. Lukewarm in their trust in scripture and it’s sufficiency, lukewarm in their faith and their obedience to Christ. I’m guilty of this too. Up until about 2 years ago, I was lukewarm. I needed to repent of this and walk in obedience to Christ. This is part of sanctification. But please Christian brothers and sisters, choose today whom you will serve. You can’t serve two masters. You can’t serve God and idolize self. You can love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; yet still choose to accept and excuse what the bible calls sin!
If Gods word calls it sin, then our opinion doesn’t matter. Let’s stop excusing sin because culture tells us we are bigots if we stand on what Scripture says.
We cannot be accepted by culture, sacrificing the love of Gods truth, and serve God whole- heartedly with our whole life.
Let’s be all in. If this is something the Holy Spirit has been convicting you of, please do not ignore Him. As Gods children, we are corrected and disciplined out of love. We are sanctified and will be til we meet Him in glory. Repentance is a GIFT from the Lord.
God requires our obedience.
Choose obedience today.
