Justify Yourself



Romans 3:4
God forbid: yea, let GOD be true, but EVERY man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in they sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 

This verse stood out to me today. 
How often we justify our sins. Or just the things we do that we probably shouldn't. 
I will be the first one to admit I've done this. Probably thousands of times. 
I told myself it was ok just because someone else was doing it.
Or I said, "Well, it's not as bad as that so it's ok."
That's where I was wrong. 

The Bible says GOD is true and every man is a liar. 
If we let God be true in our sayings, then we will overcome when we are judged. When we justify in ourselves, we ARE lying to ourselves, others and most importantly, to God!
The bible says, 
GOD FORBID! 
Wow. What an amazing eye opening thought from God.
I don't need to justify what I do.
Sin, is sin. 
Truth, is truth.
Evil, is evil.

So let's not go around justifying ourselves to people. If we know it's truth, it's truth. If we know it's wrong, don't justify it. 
Just stop doing it.
It's so freeing once you do!!

Rejoice, in this truth today!!




Isaiah 40:8
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
