God Is Not Your Santa Claus (Romans 12:1-2)

Lucas BoringLucas Boring, August 18, 2013
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Sometimes we look at God as our benefit and He was created for our use. We usually give Him our leftovers. God has never asked of us that is not too much. Our entire life should be focused on God. You you've been saved, you're not even of yourself. Most of the time we as humans look to bettering ourselves and honoring ourselves. How many times do we tell God what we want? How serious do you take the bible? Just because you do not have a graven image before God doesn't mean that you do not worship other things before God. You should put God before your family, money, job, yourself, children, spouse, etc. Everything that you do that is NOT about God will ALL be burnt up and pass away. If you do not follow God, how are others going to know how to? You should desire to please God because it is what is required and reasonable. Serving God isn't optional. If you are saved, it's not an option. If you do not obey and do what God has called you to do, He will punish you. Do you ever wonder why you do not see Gods power? If you do not put God first, then you've started in the wrong place. We believe that God created everything and controls everything around us and they all obey, but when He gets to us, we say no.

Romans 12:1-2

1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (KJV)
