TOPIC: YOU ARE INEXCUSABLE!
Read: Micah 6:6-16
MEMORISE: He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8).
Human beings, right from Adam, have always loved to give one excuse or the other. Adam would want God to have him excused because it was Eve that ate and gave forbidden fruit to him to eat? Eve in turn, didn’t want God to punish her because the serpent lured her! (Gen 3:6ff) From that point, excuses became part and parcel of man’s nature. We try from time to time to give excuses that sometimes seem genuine, and most times not genuine. We give flimsy and undefinable excuses. We give this and that reasons for inability to get a piece of work done, make up a meeting, keep/book an appointment… and the list goes on.
The fatal issue on excuses is that God rejected and still rejects excuses. If someone would fail to cooperate with His Maker, Saviour and Lord at the right time, such will be excusable (Heb. 2:3). If the Lord Jesus sacrificed His position in heaven for the underserving, cursed earth’s sake, should He then be light and merciful on the recalcitrantly unrepentant ones (Rev. 7:1ff)? No. Never!
The way to be saved is conspicuously shown to all sundry. Even if there are some yet to hear the Gospel, not you! Because if you have never got the information, here lies it in your very hand. All that is incumbent on you now is to do the needful, God assisting you. Recognise yourself as a sinner. Appreciate Christ as your Saviour. Repent of and ask for the forgiveness of your sins. Accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. And, begin to enjoy His eternally inexhaustible provisions.
Remember, He has shown you, O man, what is good. Please, do accordingly.
1. Holy Spirit, deliver me from the spirit of flimsy excuses in relation to my life’s issues and relationship with You.
2. Lord, help me to do the right things at all times, so that I won’t need to be giving excuses to cover my ineffectiveness.
3. Lord, deliver Your Church from the satanic attack of procrastination when it comes to the issues of evangelism, missions and soul-winning.
