Excuses for Sins
Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. Ephesians 5:6 NLT
The more we want to journey with God and choose to go further in our understanding of Him, the more sacrifices He would require of us. Todays verse tells us how our attitude towards people who refuse to change should be.
We live in a day and time where everyone is undermining the problem of sin; we are no longer talking about the importance of holiness, purity or righteousness instead we have learnt to overlook our failures and look at the fact that God is a good God and he will forgive as long as we have our belief systems right but the bible shows us that if we give in to patterns and doctrines which excuse sin then we’re being fooled.
Infact, we’re told to keep away from such people. Paul, further stated in 1 Corinthians saying if we may have to keep away from every sinner then we may have to leave the world but his instruction is a call to specifically stay away from believers who give excuses for their wrong choices.
The new testament covenant shows us God’s anger that comes when it is time for Judgment though it may not be at the instance of sin but there is certainly a time and day appointed for us to stand before the throne of God and that day may be too late to turn away from our sins.
So let us be intentional and make the choice to turn from any habit, lifestyle, conversations, words which will cause us to sin and be sure to do so while we still have time and in doing so, we avoid the anger of God.
May the Holy spirit redirect and mould us into people who will bring Glory to God throughout our lives.
