Excuses Excuses

03 Apr

How many excuses can we come up with for not following and serving the Lord??  Criswell Freeman said, “If you are looking for an excuse, you probably won’t have much trouble finding it.”  Vance Hauvner said, “An excuse is only the skin of a reason stuffed with a lie.”  We can come up with many, many excuses for not living the Christian life.  Here are some of the most popular and what the Bible says about those.  You will have to open your Bibles on this one!!

1 – I am a good person…I try… (Matthew 16:24-26)
2 – I come to church on Sunday…isn’t that enough? (Mat 22:37-39)
3 – I just can’t do everything (Matthew 6:33)
4 – This isn’t my thing (Romans 12:6-8)
5 – I don’t have enough time (1 John 2:15)
6 – No one else is doing all this (Matthew 7:13-14)
7 – I am scared (Isaiah 41:10)
8 – This is too hard (James 1:2-4)
9 – Jesus just doesn’t understand all I have to do (Heb 4:15-16)
10- I will do it if I have to (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
11- I just can’t work with her or him (1 Peter 3:8)
12- I’m just not strong enough (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Maybe, instead of excuses, we just say “YES” to His will and His way…
What’s your excuse and have you read what the Word has for your excuse??
