Excuses

Ephesians 5:6-8 says; Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him.  Don’t participate in the things these people do.  For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So, live as people of light!  Have you ever just wanted someone to say they were sorry, and they ended up giving you a boat load of excuses!  If we are irritated by excuses, imagine how God feels when His people make excuses rather than confess their sins.  God gets angry when we make excuses because we are really hurting ourselves.  We make excuses for the sins that we enjoy.  It’s hard to live in God’s light when we refuse to deal with sin.  When the Holy Spirit convicts you of sin, confess it specifically to the Lord and the blood of Jesus will cleanse you and you will find rest and peace in the process.
