Talon’s Point of the Day – May 6th, 2015 Live Life As HE Sees Fit

World – “Live life however you see fit”

God – “Be Holy”

There are Christians who think these two statement can be compatible. They’re not. Even as Christian we are not granted the space by God to live however we see fit so long as we “believe in Jesus.” When we determine to live as we see fit, we are placing our will above God’s and by so doing we have placed a god above God. That god being ourselves and our own desires.

Just as Christ prayed in Gethsemane for what he wanted, he nevertheless deferred to his Father’s will. Be deferring to his Father, Christ achieved the purpose for which he came. If he had not, I would still be lost. When we do the same, we will reach the purpose He has created us for. Should we not, much will be lost.

Talon’s Point of the Day is meant to be concise yet thought provoking. If you are impacted feel free to share the point with others, with or without citation.

    Reblogged this on A Conservative Christian Man and commented:
    Totally incompatible views. We, as Christians, are to be in the world but not of the world. Every time we choose our will over God’s will for us (“Be Holy”), we sin. Sin is the separation from God that comes from holding our will over His.

Toss in your "two cents" if you care to. Fair warning, you might get change ;-)
