My Title: Follow Jesus! (Don't let your heart give you wisdom on ANYTHING!)

 

My Verse: 19

"19 They promise them freedom but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person to that he is enslaved."
 

My Response:


Look through every circumstance and man to look straight at the heart. What has the heart submitted to in order to pen the message. - People can preach a good message that seems right to a man but in the end it ends only in death. Look THROUGH the message and find what god the heart has pledged it's loyalty too. It can even be the god of self! "You're good enough." - "You make your own fate." - "You can work to gain... xyz."


This is true of your own heart too. Are you telling yourself you are justified in contradicting what you KNOW to be true on account of some exception that you are allowing yourself? ("Never more creative is the mind of man then when justifying it's own sin.")


Anything but the gospel of Jesus Christ means to enslave you. REMEMBER God's CHARACTER, He WILL NOT be mocked! His SON is WORTHY (the ONLY one) of all glory and honor and power forever. < Never forget, God is telling a magnificent story and you can join Him in it or miss it complete
