What Are Your Excuses?
“There’s a deadline I need to rush”, “the whole gang of buddies will be there, it will be rude if I don’t join them”, “my parents will get upset if I spend too much time in church”, “my baby is always crying so it is a hassle bring the baby out”……Reasons or excuses? It is always a thin line. Excuses may not be sinful in itself, but even legitimate things can become wrong when they get in the way of us drawing close to God and fulfilling His calling for us. God not only invites us to a free salvation, but He also invites us to live out His glorious purpose and plan. God lovingly reminds us in <Mt 16:26>, “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Indeed, when our eternal fate is at stake, no excuse is worth it. God’s house is not full yet, His invitation is still open to all, at least while Jesus’ second coming is not here yet. Blessed is the one who accepts God’s invitation now, and also urges others to do the same!
