They Will Be Without Excuse, and That Goes for Everyone

Updated on August 6, 2018

Without excuse.

You know perspective can be a funny thing. We are all quite opinionated and can even be downright stubborn at certain times and definitely when it comes to specific things. I will start this simply by saying God says they will be without excuse. Without any excuse. Anything at all. That goes for you and I also. We will be without excuse. I know many people who are fence sitters and are waiting either for a sign, a revelation of some kind, the world to end or to die physically. That is great and all but then it will be too late. That is right it will be too late. Jesus says those who are not with Me are against Me. It really is a simple choice. We need to choose Jesus and let that choice manifest itself in our lives. Think of what God has done for all of us. Every single one.

Try to understand this perspective. Imagine if you can giving your son or daughter over to be persecuted, beaten and crucified until they die. Knowing all the time that most people will not care or do anything different in their lives even with this tremendous sacrifice. You would certainly feel awful for your child and for yourself. The part about no one caring would probably really frustrate and sadden you. Now, of course I am not saying anyone would actually let their child suffer and die but that is exactly what God did. He did it for your sin. So who killed Christ Jesus? We did. That's right we did. You and I killed Him with our sin and remember in Isaiah where it says it pleases The Lord to bruise Him and only by His stripes are we healed. So He has indeed given us the ultimate gift through Jesus and what will you do with it? Continue to sit on the fence? He was prophesied as a savior and in fact the Savior. He saved us for all eternity. He has done His part. What about you? Will you still just be a spectator and watch and wait to see what happens? Again, at that point it is too late. Way too late. Maybe you think you are too smart to believe in all that bible stuff. Here is the thing .... He is and always will be way smarter than you and I could ever hope to be. He knows everything and even knows the condition of your heart. It is coming and will you be ready? You will not be ready sitting on the fence? You must be saved and "born again" of the spirit. He can and will make all the difference in your life. As choosy as you think you are ... He is even choosier as He says many are called but few are chosen. Eternity is a very long time. I know I do not deserve it but I love Him and I want to be with Him for eternity. That is where I want to spend it. Where do you want to? Here are some verses on sacrifice and salvation:

Psalm 62:1 Truly my soul silently waits for God, from Him comes my salvation.

2 Timothy 1:9 God who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.

Revelation 22:17 And let him who thirsts come, whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

1 John 2:2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 1:20 Even His eternal power and Godhead so that they are without excuse.

God bless always.

      I've been reading the book of Ezekiel recently. Not only are people "without excuse" but the "Watchman" who fails to warn will be held accountable!

      Awesome hub
