It is highly convenient to our lusts to say that we don’t know or aren’t sure about the truth of God. For if we can say that we don’t know or aren’t sure about Him, then the secret places of our hearts remain our private property – as least so we think.
The world today – just like the world in every generation – ignores God. It professes ignorance of God even while professing great knowledge and wisdom about creation itself. Those whose hands are on the power levers of government, business, and every other realm of human activity are, generally speaking, those who believe that faith is not something to be spoken of in polite society. This is all the more true if the faith is in Jesus.
These people live in a world of darkness, willfully ignorant of the God who is all around them and inside them. And why do they do this? It’s those lusts. Acknowledge God and you, by that fact, give up the right to think just anything you want whenever you want. People think this is freedom, but it is actually bondage – bondage to sin, which is the ripening of lust.
Give up your lusts. Give up the darkness of ignorance which provides their hospitable environment. Instead, live in the light of Jesus Christ, King of heaven and earth. Live under His authority for He is the one who created you. The intense light of His eyes disinfects every environment in which that light is welcomed. Prefer the knowledge of God to the ignorance of God. And prefer His commandments to your lusts.
