7 Sins

Caution for those who walk with God – you begin to act like God, think like God, understand His heart, identify gifts He has given you and using those gifts to minister to others – and life gets busy.

In the busyness of life, life has a way of becoming a business.

Passion is there, but enthusiasm has left.  Passion driven by business and enthusiasm, “being filled with God,” is empty because there is just not enough time to walk with God each day.

Slowly and very surely the carnal creeps into the heart and slowly and surely the fruits of the Spirit are exchanged for the sins of our human nature.

Scary part is that most of us do not even realize this, even in the midst of that very act of sin.

Imagine a church leader sleeping with his father’s wife – who in the non-Christian world even does that?

I think we have identified the first sin that creeps its head out the window when we begin to go alone on our daily walk – arrogance.

Instead of remorse leading to repentance and mourning leading to a re-connection with God, we deny and become full-fledge hypocrites of the first degree.

This is why such leaders need to be removed from that role and why church members need to be called out because if this is not held accountable within the church community, where will it be held accountable?

If there is no sincerity and truth in our walk with God, but instead in its absence there is malice and evil would it be better for us not to associate ourselves and make a stand against such immorality and hypocrisy for the sake of the church and for the sake of the unbeliever?

It is not the immoral person that we have a problem with – the world is full of them – our problem is the one who is in the church, posing as a follower of Christ and yet underneath are works of destruction happening within the church and most likely outside the church as well.

May our walk with God never be taken for granted – may our habit of meeting with the Lord each day never lose its enthusiasm – may we understand that without the Spirit of God ruling our hearts we are not all we can possibly be.

    I wish I could say what you say is not true, but alas it is. Accountability among those who name Christ as Lord has become dispensable, and with that Paraclete leaves, and the body becomes a mere skeleton. Be strong in the LORD and the power of divine might.
    Peace

  2. What an excellent word of caution. Arrogance sneaks in one small step at a time. I appreciate your message.
