Moment of Truth: Casting Down Lies #21

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

“We fail God every day.”

Maybe you fail God every day, but if I can help it—and I can—I’m not going to fail Him regulary. I will also add that people who say “we” as if their struggles are everyone’s is wrong.

If you are failing God every day, here’s are some points to consider:

  1. You’re a lackadaisical, habitual sinner who fails to repent.
  2. You have a guilt complex. You know the people who beat themselves up?
  3. You think that repeating this statement “We fail God every day” makes you humble.
  4. All of the above.

Plain and simple. You aren’t failing God if you live for Him soberly in fear. God just wants you to seek Him, learn of His Word so that you don’t sin against Him, and confess with your mouth while asking for forgiveness in Jesus’ name.

Now if that is too difficult for you to accept, go ahead and fall in the wilderness. Better yet, become an apostate and tell Christians that grace is given through sin and we’ll never be perfect.

Please don’t. “I speak this to your shame” as Paul would say.

Disciples are disciplined and Peter points the way to success:

[3] According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: [4] Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. [5] And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; [6] And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; [7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. [8] For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. [9] But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. [10] Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: ~2 Peter 1:3-10 KJV

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place. ~2 Corinthians 2:14 KJV

To triumph is the opposite of to fail.
