Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. - Psalm 119:105

Discipleship

A Sinners Excuse!

By Dr. Richard J. Krejcir
1. I'm OK because I am a good person.
2. I'm too big a sinner to be a Christian
3. Not now! I'm just not ready yet.
4. There is too much to give up.

1. I'm OK because I am a good person.

 

You may think that way but God does not!


Rom: 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Rom: 3:10: As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Eccl: 7:20: For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not
.

 

Not only does God show that you are a sinner, but He also warns you of the consequences of sin, and the judgment that follows.


Rom: 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Ezek: 18:4: Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Num. 32:23: Be sure your sin will find you out.

 

2. I'm too big a sinner to be a Christian

 

The fact is we all are! As a sinner we are saved because what Christ has done. He came to save us sinners, and if you relinquish your sins and trust and obey the Lord Jesus, you have God's word He will forgive you!


1Tm: 1:15: This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Lk: 19:10: For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Isa: 55:7: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Prov: 28:13: He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
Rom: 10:13: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Jn: 6:37: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
Heb: 7:25: Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

 

If you are among the "uttermost" ones, come now and rejoice in your salvation!

 

3. Not now!  I'm just not ready yet.

 

Lk: 14:17: Come; for all things are now ready.
Heb: 3:15: While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
Isa: 55:6: Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
2Cor: 6:2: (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
Prov: 27:1: Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. 
Jms: 4:13: Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
Lk: 12:19-20: And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.  But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
Mt: 25:13: Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

 

Are you ready, if not what is in the way?

 

4. There is too much to give up.

 

Mk: 8:36: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Ps: 84:11: For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Rom: 8:32: He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Mt: 6:33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Lk: 18:29: And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, 30: Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.
Rom: 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

What we may give up in no way compares to what we gain in Him!
