THE BIG IF: Owning or blaming?

personal_responsibility_areaHave you ever blamed others because you couldn’t find your glasses only to find them on top of your head or searched for your phone only to find it tucked in your pocket or wondered what the smell was in the room that someone must be creating only to find out that you had stepped into something in the yard? It’s easy to see what we think are other people’s problems. Remember Adam in the Garden of Eden? He blamed Eve. What did Eve do? She blamed the Serpent. That’s sinful human nature at work.

Owning itAs Christians, we must be responsible and own our sin and its consequences in our economy or society, instead of blaming Obama or lost people. Christians almost unanimously assimilate paganism in some form instead of living holy. Almost all American Christians focus on Christian leaders instead of the Word, and live arrogantly toward GOD. They deny their sin and justify it.

GOD says He won’t hear our prayers if we regard sin in our hearts, so the first step is to humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways; then GOD can hear our prayers and forgive our sins and heal our lives and our land.
