We look for excuses in all walks of life to keep from doing what we need to do for the Lord. Our Lord does not except excuses . Yet we keep giving them.
1. NOT NOW.
Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
2. I FAILED BEFORE
Romans 4: 21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
3.I DON,T UNDERSTAND
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
4. I DON,T NEED SALVATION
John 3: 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
5. I DON,T BELIEVE IN HELL
Matt:22: 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
6. IT COST TO MUCH
Mark 8: 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
7. IS IT TO LATE
John 6: 37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
