Disobedience Is Unbelief

We pretend it's not true, but we often believe the same lie that Satan told Eve. This 1-minute devotion explains.

"I know what I'm doing is dishonest, but I can't afford to do the right thing right now." 

Have you ever heard someone excuse a sin as if they had no choice?

But there's no excuse. We always have a choice.

Ignoring God's commands is ignoring God Himself because His principles flow from His character.  When we choose disobedience, we reject His holiness, wisdom, and love.

Eve knew what God had told her, but Satan convinced her that she couldn't afford to pass up that piece of forbidden fruit. She bought the lie and learned that the wages of sin is death

When Christians choose to sin, we invite a little bit of death into our lives as well.

That's why we must flee evil desires (2 Timothy 2:22). And when we fail, we must fully repent so God can purify our hearts (1 John 1:9).

And if you think this is a burden, think again: "In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome" (1 John 5:3).

Bible Love Notes


  1. Another truth-filled post, Gail! Thanks so much!

  2. Hi Gail, I just listened to your Bible Love Notes for the first time and it was like having a visit with you! It's so nice to hear your voice, I don't know why I didn't think of it before. Thanks!

  3. Amazing revelation. May God bless you.

  4. I have that problem with tithing. I know I should be doing it, but when finances are tight, eliminating my tithe is the first to go. I suppose my faith isn't as strong as it should be. I know, if I am faithful God will see me through the financial dificulties. But--- Pray for me.

    1. I pray for you, Rick, both for your finances and for wisdom to do what God asks of you. God bless you for your honesty.
