Matthew 19:17b Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God:
When a servee asks if you want a refill of coffee, have you ever said; “No thanks, I’m good.” Dessert, “No thanks, I’m good.” Another beer, “No thanks, I’m good.”
The choices we make in this life related to receiving help is totally up to us. We get to make that decision. No harm, no foul, hopefully. We do it every day. That is within our control.
Do you want another cup of grace? Do you want a bowl of salvation? How about a dose of humility before you hit the road? If you say, “No thanks, I’m good.”, you have just allowed the enemy to whisper lies into your ear. Before you deny you have ever done such a thing, let me remind you that I am no different than you are, and I’ve done it. It is not an easy thing to confess because it is on the fringe of Christ denied. You know what Christ has done for you and I will never tell you that He has not. I just refuse to believe He is through with us, ever.
Ephesians 3:19-20 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
When it comes to Kingdom Living, we don’t get to say no thanks. It isn’t up to us to say I have the fullness of God. This is how I know that to be true.
I had it all together until it all fell apart.
