No excuses

Re:Verse reading–Romans 1:18-32 (day six)

“They are without excuse”–v 20.

A shock to my system.  A contradiction to the way I normally (and comfortably) see myself. God says that I am (we all are) without excuse!

God just doesn’t see me as a victim.  I am not helpless in the face of my tendencies. He doesn’t buy it.  I have no one to blame.  Not now. Certainly not when “that Day” comes. The light of truth will shine into the deepest part of my soul.  Exposing my motives.  Revealing my heart.

It will know this truth on that day.  There are NO good reasons for not worshiping God.  None.  He made me.  He revealed Himself in the creation and in my conscience.  He warns of His wrath.  He offers grace in Christ.

People try to blame or explain.  I am tired.  I can’t help myself.  I had a rough childhood.

Words will be useless.  We are without excuse.
