Excuses wonít work when your life is over
By Dan Langerock

You may have reasons you are not being close to God in your life and other facets of your spiritual existence, but these wonít hold water when your life is over. Letís go over a few of the reasonings you may use and why they are not valid:

I was hurt in a church setting or otherwise While it is unfortunate you were hurt by someone perhaps long ago, it does not absolve you from being close to God anyway. There are always going to be people out there who can hurt you, not just in church but elsewhere. You are responsible for your own spiritual decisions no matter who or what hurt you. Besides, are you going to allow someone to dictate your lifeís behavior the rest of your life in this manner? Think about it!

We moved away from the church we really loved and havenít gone again. It is admirable you loved one church so much in your lifetime, but it does not mean you can stop going to church because nothing measures up to thiat one. The longer you stay away from church , the easier it is to stay away because there are always excuses you can make. Letís use a secular example: Suppose you trained to be a doctor but moved from one city to another and never reestablished a practice in the new city. You are still a doctor, but not practicing any longer.

I canít forgive God for what He has put me through in life. Many people blame God for what happens in their lives. I donít know what has happened to you, but I do know that God loves you very much. This is an evil world we live in, and bad things happen to good and bad people alike, if you will take the time to look into the matter. You can choose to be mad at God if you wish, but that wonít help you have peace in your life. Have yhou told God how you feel honestly? Have you allowed Him to answer you by reading the Bible? How will this anger affect your life in the long run?

These are but three of the many excuses people use for not being close to God or even trying. What you do with your life is your business, but there are consequences for making the wrong decisions in the spiritual realm as there are in the natural realm. Will your excuse hold up when your life ends?

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
