I read something today and I think I cannot let it pass without talking about it to somebody.
And y’all get to be the somebody.
Aren’t you glad?
For privacy sake, I am not identifying the author but here is the statement:
“They were seeking to worship God in a way they see fit.”
Worship GOD in a way they see fit they say.
GOD is not seeking people to worship Him as they see fit.
No. Nope. Not at all!
True worshippers of GOD, worship Him as HE directs.
There is damnable blindness over people.
John 12:40 “He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.” source
These have believed the lies of the evil one that they can live in habitual sin and in this habitual sin they can offer up acceptable worship to a holy, holy, holy GOD.
It’s a lie, People.
And you know who is the father of lies, don’t you? Check out John 8:44
We can only worship the one and only holy, holy, holy GOD with clean hands and pure hearts. Check it out. Psalm 24: 1-6
Our hands are neither clean nor our hearts pure when we habitually practice sin. It’s not possible, People. Not possible.
How about a list?
Even ONE of these sins, ONE time bars us from Heaven.
Check it out. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and Revelation 21:8
No, my friends, we cannot worship GOD, THE GOD of Creation, as we see fit.
We will worship Him as He directs or we are not worshipping Him at all.
Albeit said worship will be received — by Satan, the god of this world.
And who wants to worship a little g god?
And with all this is there hope for any of us?
His Name is JESUS!
