Godless Living

Their thinking became useless. Their foolish minds were filled with darkness. They said they were wise, but they became fools. Romans 1:21-22


Since the hedonist (Definition:
1.the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the highest good. 2. Devotion to pleasure and self-gratification as a way of life.) has never seen the hand who made the universe, he or she assumes there is no life beyond the here and now. He or She believes there is no truth beyond this room. No purpose beyond his own pleasure. No divine factor. He has no concern for the eternal…

The hedonist says, "Who cares? I may be bad, but so what? What I do is my business." He's more concerned about satisfying his passions than in knowing the Father. His life is so desperate for pleasure that he has no time or room for God.

Is he right? Is it OK to spend our days thumbing our noses at God and living it up?

Paul says, "Absolutely not!"

According to Romans 1, we lose more than stained-glass windows when we dismiss God. We lose our standard, our purpose, and our worship.

The Devotion above was taken from Grace for the Moment.



I wanted to encourage those who would come across this page and read this devotion to not allow anyone or anything to cause you to lose your Godly standards, your God-given purpose, and your worship unto God.

In this world we live in today, it is so easy to be caught up in self-gratifications. But we must press on even harder to LOVE the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We must love God more than our wants, needs, and desires. We must love Him even more that we love our family. God wants our total and complete devotion to him without reservations.
