The Cost of Being Witless

IMG_3818

According to Merriam-Webster, witless can be defined as being foolish, stupid, or mentally deranged. In these last of the last days, it behooves us to daily partake in thoughtful and intentional Bible study, consistent prayer, and Christian fellowship.   Many days, we may feel like God has left us when indeed we stepped away from Him.  It’s then and only then that you and I open ourselves us to a witless path of destruction.  Beloved, do you realize that many Christians/unbelievers are living like this on a daily basis? Many of us are content with a complete mess of our lives and look to everything and everyone but the person that stares back at us in the mirror.

Consistency in our relationship with the Lord is vital to not being driven to an extent that one cannot think clearly or rationally. I urge/warn us that when you feel that gentle tug from Holy Spirit to return within the confines of God’s safe haven, humbly submit and yield to His direction.  Your spiritual health depends on it!  Note: You may often hear of the Holy Spirit being referred to as (“something told me”) dropped parenthetically within everyday conversations. If we’re not careful, the spirit of pride can creep in and have us thinking that we don’t need God and we definitely know that’s far from the truth.  Experience can sometimes serve as an instant reminder that God has a way of humbling His children.

Friends, there’s a price that’s paid intentionally/unintentionally sinning. God has given us all the freedom of saying yes to His way of life or not. “If someone sins and without knowing it violates any of the Lord’s commands concerning anything prohibited, he bears the consequences of his guilt (Leviticus 5:17, HCSB). The bottom line is this: unenlightenment does not void accountability.  There’s not one person in the Word of God and now who haven’t paid and still paying for their deliberate disobedience.  Let’s embrace the totality of pleasing God in all that we say and do.   Hebrews 12:4 (HCSB), “Pursue peace with everyone and holiness- without it no one will see the Lord. Until we meet again… I love you to life!
