Everyone Must Obey God's Word... Even YOU!

"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."  Matthew 24:35 KJV

The word of God is SURE (2 Timothy 3:16).  None of us are exempt.  We must obey the word of God, including the parts about obedience, giving, living a holy lifestyle, praying, fellowship, controlling our speech, loving one another, and everything else.  The requirement doesn't change, and it will never go away. Systematically ignoring any portion of it is SIN (James 4:17).

Too many of us are subtly erasing portions of God's word in application to our own lives while systematically excusing the same.  The Holy Ghost reminds us of all Jesus taught and did... Not just the things that we're comfortable with.  Remember, God's word is meant to cut and mold us (Hebrews 4:12), not the other way around.  We don't need to adjust the word of God to fit our own lifestyles.  The Scriptures are a mirror that show us our true, messed up selves.  Once we see the truth, our prayer should be to be purged and cleansed (Psalm 51).  When we confess, God is then faithful, through the blood of Jesus Christ, to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).  It's supposed to "hurt" every now and then.  That's how we are perfected in God.

Let's learn to confess our wrong.  Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.  Let's get it right, in Jesus' name.  HOLINESS is the only way!  None of us are so special that we are exempt!  ORDER IN THE CHURCH!
