God Help! But Don’t Ask Me to Live by The Bible

I’m amazed at how many people call on God for help in the time of need and trouble but don’t really want a personal relationship with him. They like to know that God is there if they need him, but don’t really want him to be a part of their everyday life.

Some of these same people will openly reject God by denying the Bible, they will not say that is what they are doing, but that is exactly what they are doing. Any time you say something is right that the Bible has clearly said is sin you are rejecting God and his word. You can’t have your cake and eat it too mentality.

It’s so sad to see how satan has deceived people to believe as long as they call on God occasionally, they are okay. God wants a relationship with his creation, not just us crying out God Help! but don’t ask me to live by the Bible.

Some will say the Bible is no longer relevant; it’s old fashion and just not keeping up with the times. Yet, when they get in trouble or have a need it is strange how relevant God and his word become to them.

Then there are others who want to pick and choose. They like the promises of God, but don’t care for the instructions that are opposite of what they want to do.

How would you feel if the only time you heard from someone was when they needed your help. How would it feel to find that that person had been saying your words are not true and not important?

I’m not trying to say we should not call on God, we should. In Matthew 7: 7, 8 Jesus instructs us to ask him

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

When mankind decides they don’t need God or they only want God when it’s convenient for them.  It’s a recipe for destruction.

Matthew 7: 13, 14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

God loves his creation so of course he wants the best for us. God wants to have a personal relationship with us every day!
