Don't Believe False Teachings About a Weak God with No Expectations

Let's quit believing in a limp, powerless God and realize who our God really is!

Godliness is not a popular subject, even among Christians. The immoral and selfish values of our culture are attractive to our fallen human nature. It's easier to fit in with the majority than to take a stand for Christ.

That's why many people preach a weak god who has no expectations and no commands. He overlooks our sins and never seeks to transform us.

However, the true and living God expects His children to take our faith seriously (Philippians 2:12-13). When we understand the price He paid for us, we naturally want to be transformed (Romans 12:1-2).

His word not only teaches, it also rebukes, corrects, and trains us in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17). In addition, our hardships bring us benefits that far outweigh the difficulties (1 Peter 4:12-19). These things are all part of building our lives on the sure foundation of Christ (1 Corinthians 3:10-15; Philippians 3:7-16).

We don't do any of these things to "earn" our salvation. We do them because we love our Savior (John 14:21).

Renewal begins at the foot of the Cross when we confess our sins and accept Christ's love, but it doesn't stop there. It continues in a life-long transformation as we grow in godliness and biblical wisdom.


I encourage you to read the additional thoughts in these 1-minute devotions: 

Are You Hungry? talks about our daily need for the "bread" of God's Word. 

I'm Too Busy talks about our tendency to become so busy that we miss God's plans and purposes in our lives.

Narrow Road Scenery talks about our need to make sure our "spiritual GPS" is programed for the narrow road.
