What Is Your Excuse?

Romans 1:18-32

I used to be a high school teacher, and I was always amazed at the excuses students would come up with for not having their homework. “My tooth hurt and I couldn’t write.” “Our television was broken, and I have to have my favorite show on while I do homework.” “You said to finish the study questions, but you didn’t say we had to turn them in.”

I’m wondering if God often tires of our spiritual excuses. “I don’t have time to study the Bible.” “If I read the Bible, I won’t have time to read the newspaper, and surely God wants me to be up on current events.” “I don’t need to attend Bible study because I went a few years ago.”

Romans 1 highlights that since the beginning of time, God has clearly made himself known–through nature, through Scripture, through our consciences, in our hearts, and through His prophets. We really have no excuse for not knowing Him, serving Him, and loving Him.

Let’s commit to serving Him with 100 percent, so that when we stand before Him, we won’t need to make any excuses.
