I have a neighbor.
He is not a Christian…
He doesn’t go to church…
He isn’t really even religious.
So, when he said this to me the other day, I was a little shocked…
“You can’t fit God into your lifestyle…you have to fit into God’s lifestyle.”
Simple. Profound. True.
And, the dude doesn’t even go to church.
But, he understands you can’t mess with God or His Word.
You can’t pick and choose what you want to believe about Him.
You can’t cut and paste the Gospel.
You can’t ignore truth just because you think it’s inconvenient or “outdated.”
God is the same…
Yesterday. Today. Forever.
He doesn’t change.
But, maybe it’s time for you to change…
Change the way you think about God.
He is not someone you just fit into your life…
Otherwise He ceases to be God and just becomes another idol you’ve created.
Are you trying to fit God into your lifestyle…or are you trying to be more like Him and fit into His lifestyle?
What god do you believe in?
The God of the Bible, or the god of your imagination?
Check yourself…your neighbor is probably watching you too.
15 So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. 16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.” Ephesians 5:15-16 (NLT)
