No Excuses

READ: Romans 10:1-13

 

Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. -Romans 10:13

 

People have many different reasons for rejecting the gospel. A common one is to blame Christians for something they did or did not do. These critics say, "I know a Christian who treated me poorly." Or, "I went to church, and no one talked to me."

Indeed, Christians aren't perfect, and many can be bad examples. But blaming others doesn't remove one's accountability to God.

The truth of the gospel does not depend on the way others live out their faith. Salvation is about Jesus alone. Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."

Some people may use Christians as an excuse to reject the gospel. But they certainly can't point a finger of blame at Jesus. He is sinless and perfect in every way. Pilate said of Him, "I have found no fault in this Man" (Luke 23:14). And Jesus did what no one else could do-He suffered death on a cross to provide salvation for all who believe in Him. That makes it tough for someone to say, "I'm not going to become a Christian because I don't like what Jesus did."

Don't get sidetracked by looking at the faults of others. Look to Jesus. He alone is the way to heaven. -Dave Branon

There is no excuse for saying "No" to Christ.

He is the Way, the Truth, the Life-
That One whose name is Jesus;
There is no other name on earth
That has the power to save us. -Sper
