Who's to be blamed?

by Saturday, August 28, 2010

When we accept Jesus into our life, our sins are washed away because of the Cross. Even so, there may be some times when we still sin, through telling lies or just by doing something wrong. But who is to be blamed for our sins?

Perhaps there may be a time when you are angry, because you have lost your love one, you may start to blame God for taking away your kin from you. At times, when you tell a lie, you blame the Devil for tempting you to sin, like Eve, who put the blame on the serpent.

Firstly, putting the blame on the devil is wrong as he is always the one who lies, which is why he is in the burning furnace. As the saying goes: liar, liar pants n fire. The devil only tempts and lies, but for the completion of the act, sin,, it has to be up to your decision.

Secondly, we should not put the blame on people when we do something wrong, because, again, they did not point a gun at you to commit it. Rather, they may be the ones who provoked you to do so. Therefore, you have to train yourself to act wisely. Always ask for the Holy Spirit’s conviction that you may act upon wisdom.

Thirdly, you blame God. For instance, you blame Him for your misfortunes, asking Him things like: ‘Hey God? Why didn’t you protect me from harm?’ or ‘why didn’t you protect me from sinning?’ It is as though He is yur empter, approving you of wrong things. Sadly, this is not the case. God is actually the one stopping you from sinnin against Him. As said in the model prayer: and lead me not into temptation, God is preventing you from doing wrong. You should thank Him from all the things that He is doing for you, as He cares for you.

We may treat a God as trash bag, pouring all our anger upon Him, but thank God that He is forgiving. Hence, when we sinned, take full responsibilities for our actions and come before our forgiving Father with repentance, so that we may continue to fear Him even as we live each day for Him.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion. Blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
Psalms 51:1-2

Let every dream of our Lord come true

Even though God has all power in heaven, as said in the previous post,' Run! For the calling of God!' He places a calling in each and everyone of us. We know very well of the dreams He has: dreams for the lost, for our Generation, and for us alone.

'Everyday is the day of salvation,' we have been proclaiming this in churches, that everyone has the right to be saved. This is also God's dream, that He wants all lost to come into His kingdom, not into the pit.It was why He placed a call into us, to preach the Gospel.

Now the dreams for our Generation. As said in the bible:
'For it is God who works in you and to act according to His good purpose.’
Philippians 2:13

He wants our generation to lay hold of our purposes, to become imitators of Christ. Only through this can the world be turned to this Godly Generation, who is thirsty for the presence of the Lord, and wants to see Him glorified, one of which is through our actions.

Lastly is the dream for us alone. God does not want us to be deprived of happiness. Just as everyone has dreams, we must be selective of what dreams we want to go for. God dreams of us as a creation who will grow, a creation that will prosper, and one who stays happy and strengthened. Another verse of the Bible states:

‘ “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “ plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’
Jeremiah 29:11

We may all have dreams, but we must go for the dreams that God desires for our future, only then can our Lord be happy and His dream would be fulfilled on us: a joyous creation that runs for His call.

So then, let our people be the ones who fulfills God’s dream. Be the ones who glorify God with our whole life… God bless our Generation… :)
