Blame
Krissy, 18

Verse:
 

"Christ will make your hearts strong, blameless, and holy when you stand before God our Father on that day when our Lord Jesus comes with all those who belong to Him." 1 Thessalonians 3:13

"Now He has brought you back as friends. He has done this through His death on the cross in His own human body. As a result, He has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault" Colossians 1:22

"Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days." Ephesians 5:16

 
Lesson:
 

I saw a lot about "Blame" recently. Even Adam blamed the woman God gave him. Blame started there in the very beginning and it's not ever stopped.

It's so easy to blame something when we can't find the answer or believe what has happened. My not receiving Yahoogroup mail and many others were. They all said it's my internet servers fault. I was getting mail just not anything from Yahoogroups. So, I believed the blame was "MY" internet server because the others were getting their mail so it couldn't be Yahoo's fault.

I wrote to Yahoogroups and told them I was not receiving any list mail. They promply wrote back and said it's my internet servers fault, blaming them saying they get to much mail and they "dump" it and yahoo has no way to know what mail my server dumped.

Blame.....it's so easy to do. To blame someone saying they are wrong for telling you to be a stronger Christian and not settle for being like others. To blame a person and not forgive them and let it become bitterness. To blame parents for everything. To blame our friends and blame them for not trusting at times when it's very very hard to do. Blame....it's always there! It causes strife and anger. How many times have you said, "It's not my fault!"

Are you making the most of every opportuinity or are you blaming?

Blame! It's so easy to do!! We blame God too!! We blame our not reading God's Word because we are to busy. We blame our not spending time in prayer, on forgetting too. We even blame not witnessing, being too scared or not enough knowledge of the Word to share. We blame churches for "not" doing enough but forgetting "we" are the church!

Our responsibility is not to blame but to live by Christ's example.We are to keep our heart and mind pure. Imperfection is no excuse!

God loves us so much He took the Blame!!! so we may be presented"Blameless"

There is no way that we alone could ever live a blamelss life. It is only through Christ's dying on the cross what we are found "BLAMELESS"

 
Prayer:
 
"Lord, help us to live without blame." - Amen
