Why do some people say drinking “one beer” or “one glass of wine” is ok with God? It’s not ok with God. Wine and strong drink is a mockery to God. God said so in Proverbs. Why do some people say a little lie is not going to send me to Hell when it actually will. They’re deceived by sin. Why do some people say nobody’s perfect when the Bible actually says you can be perfect (110 times in the KJV)? They haven’t studied the Bible closely nor do they want to because it “exposes” their excuse to sinful conduct. Why do people fornicate today and ask God to forgive them tonight and then fornicate over again tomorrow or next week? Sin has dominion over their conscience and character. They are a actually a slave to sin and in their conscience they will excuse sinful living. Why do some people excuse sin? Their mind and intellect is darkened by the nature of the Fall and they have a “self justification” to make every excuse known to man. Excuse after excuse, “Who are they really kidding?” Not God! People excuse sin in their own intellect and in their own reasoning. Excuses made for sin will not take you to Heaven.
Sin is brought to light when Christ truely takes you over. There will be no more excuses to sin because you will realize the magnitude of the clean heart made you personally clean by the death of a Saviour on the cross. His death on the cross and Salvation for you personally! Yes! For you personally! Personal forgiveness. Personal holiness. Each individual believer actually gets to Christ on a personal level. A personal clean heart! Glory! Then sin is forgiven, realized, and thus uprooted in your life! No more excuses to sin, but inclination to live holy and right! The person, the power, and the presence of Christ shows this believer how to live, how to act and, how to behave. Realization of Christ brings accountability to you which in turn shows you, the “right way”.
You will not excuse sin when Christ takes you over completely…You will not blame the Devil when Christ takes you over completely…You will no longer claim your own righteousness (weak in the flesh) but a righteousness of the Law fulfilled in you…Romans 8:4 Fulfilled in you! Glory! Fulfilled! In me by Him. No room for excuses to sin! A right spirit! A holy heart! A right attitude toward sin! With Honor! In Glory! With Power! I don’t want to excuse sin. I hate it! Like my Father in Heaven who hates sin and loves righteousenss…a righteousness of the Law fulfilled in me…Romans 8:4 Glory! According to what God said! According to what Jesus does! According to what is written! God’s ways are better than the ways of man! No more excuses! A right life! A right Spirit! A right attitude towards sin! I like that! How about you?
