Romans 1:21 “For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
I love how I can read Scripture and have it speak directly to me but I hate when it’s like Romans 1:21. I hate it because it’s the truth. I know God but I do not honor Him at all.
Sometimes I think I fool myself with my “futile” life and my self-righteous thinking. I know God but stumble constantly on trying to honor Him. From the moment I wake to the thoughts in my dreams I do everything but honor. My eyes are full of lust. My thoughts full of hatred. My life is full of honoring myself.
I am afraid that I will be one of those people that God says I never knew you. But that fear does not affect my faith. I know that Christ died for me and that He is my Lord and Savior but just feel burden with my sin. Not in a prideful way but more in a way that you want to make your Father proud of way. Does that make sense to you?
Romans 1:16-17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
I will never have all the answers but I will always have my faith. God is good, God is Love.
