Pray For MY HOPE

Pray For MY HOPE

SCRIPTURE

And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”

~Genesis 3:11-12, NASB

QUOTE

Sin is definitely in every single heart that beats.

~Billy Graham

COMMENTARY

God will hold us accountable just as He did Adam. You may take your sin lightly but God does not. He ask Adam a simple question, “Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” Simple question and very direct. It deserved a direct answer and that answer is in the last two words that Adam spoke, “I ate.” God said “did you eat” and all Adam had to say was “I ate” but that is not all he said. First he says, “The woman YOU gave me, she gave to me”. It may be subtle, but Adam is blaming God for his sin and he throws Eve under the bus in the same breath. Do we think that alibis, excuses, blaming others or just flat out denial of our sin is going to change the consequences. If so, you need to think again.

EXTRA

We had good services but I was disappointed in the attendance. We do have some sickness but it’s mostly the same old same old: self-interest before His interest. Billy Graham agrees with me that this selfish inclination is the essence of sin. We have so many needs, I don’t understand how any believer cannot be concerned about REVIVAL. It is what it is which gives us all the more reason to pray. On a lighter side, I blogged about GIFT CARDS and mentioned that I had one in my billfold that did not get thrown away like my Huntsville Hospital parking card when my sweetie changed my billfold out a few months back. She came and ask for the card and I gave it to her; it had $50 on it and she has been to McDonald’s twice. Remember the service will begin at 7:00; pre-service prayer meeting at 6:30. Pray for REVIVAL and MY HOPE.
