The current sermon series at the church I attend is entitled Bad Advice.
Sunday’s sermon began with a little tale about a couple driving down the road in their truck. As the husband was driving the wife asked him, “honey, remember when we used to sit close and hold hands and cuddle while we were driving? What happened to us?” And his reply was, “I’m not the one that moved.”
We were all asked to think back. Was there a time when we were closer to God? What changed? God is not the one that moved. We are.
We all are capable of drifting away from our closeness to God. A simple change in our priorities. Life’s distractions. That new job, boyfriend, gym, house, baby. You name it. All perfectly good things.
Any one of us can become a full time ___________(fill in the blank) and a part time follower of Christ simply by listening to the wrong advice. The world’s advice. The enemy’s advice. Bad advice. 😦
Where do you get your advice?
Which little voice do you listen to?
Let’s all try and steer clear of bad advice. Others that know what’s best for us. Jesus is the best source for good advice. Draw near to Him. Pray. Read your bible. Hang with those living the lifestyle God would be proud of. Stop giving in to temptation you know is wrong. And always remember, God is not the one who moved. We are.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
