WHAT BUCKLING MY SEAT BELT HAS IN COMMON WITH SUBMITTING TO GOD’S WORD…

MY FIRST CAR

When I learned to drive years ago (in the early 80’s) I wasn’t in the habit of wearing a seat belt. It thought it to be…

Restrictive…

Uncomfortable…

Unnecessary for my security…

In fact, I thought that I couldn’t enjoy my ride as much while wearing a seat belt.

Then a law was passed making it mandatory to wear a seat belt, or you would be fined.

I reluctantly began wearing my seat belt…regularly. The more I put it on, the more I got used to wearing it. The more I got used to wearing it, the more I got comfortable wearing it. It was not burdensome anymore.


What felt unnatural, now feels natural!


It now feels unnatural to NOT wear my seatbelt. I now feel uncomfortable and unsecure without it on.

Look at what the bible teaches about being obedient to God’s word…

1 John 5:3(NKJV)

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.

Many times people are reluctant to submit to God because they feel submitting to His word is…

Restrictive…

Uncomfortable…

Unnecessary for my security…

In fact, they think they can’t enjoy their ‘ride’ through life as much while submitting to God’s word.

The more you submit to God, and the more your love for God grows…the more you value and treasure His word and His expectations.

Just like me wearing a seat belt, being obedient not only becomes easier, it feels more natural. At the same time…old sinful behaviors, even those that haven’t gone away completely seem more unnatural.

So open your bible and BUCKLE UP!

BE BLESSTIFIED!
