"Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened." (Romans 1:21 AMPC)
It is dissilutional to anyone who knows God as God but refuses to honour and glorify Him. The present day church must be careful in our worship of God. The human nature is the fundamental reason people will refuse to glorify and honour God as who He is. Many of our churches are filled with people who are yet to be purged of the life of the flesh, thereby they seek glory and honour for themselves even in the church.
If we will experience the latter rain as promised by the Father, we must as a matter of urgency, report at the Cross, for the purging of self-life from us.
It is the same Self that will not allow us to appropriate the thanksgiving due to God. He will cajole us into praising and possibly worshipping man rather than God.
The self-life will make people to become futile and godless in their thinking. Our generation is making every effort to crowd out God in our thinking and subsequent actions. We are quickly deviating from the solid foundational principles laid by our founding fathers.
People's minds are increasingly become darker by the day. Despite advancement in science and technology, human race is moving very fast towards hell. It seems the hosts of hell has been let loose like never before.
The church must arise and salvage the situation by returning to biblical principles in all aspects of our lives. After returning to them, we must be bold enough to point the world to the Cross, where lives will be transformed and regenerated.
ACTION PLAN: Check all aspects of your life and look out for the manifestations of human nature. Submit the Self in you at the feet of the Cross.
PRAYER: Father, I bring the self-life in me to the Cross today, uproot it for me and release me into a new life in Christ.
