532 WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO OUR GODLY HERITAGE?

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

God’s word has more to say about being wrong than being right.

Colossians 3:6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Exactly; our disobedience has corrupted our Godly heritage.

Do you mean to say that one simple ‘no’ corrupted everyone and everything? Yes!

Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

The thing with disobedience is that the first one is/was only the beginning. Once disobedience started, it had to continue. It is like everything in the world. It had to ‘start’ somewhere, sometime but it never ends there. Once started it cannot be stopped except by God.

Once our disobedience started, in our heart, it will continue until our death or Jesus’ salvation. The evidence for our disobedience is in our actions. Our heart will come out our mouths and physical actions.

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

But, speaking disobedience does not end there. We are living our lives by what is in our heart and, if our heart is corrupt, our lives will show it.

Proverbs 20:11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.

Our corrupt hearts have lead to all the corruption in this world; yes, ALL OF IT!

 Read what our sinful heart will do to you.

Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Romans 3:12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Romans 3:13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

Romans 3:14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

Romans 3:15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:

Romans 3:16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:

Romans 3:17 And the way of peace have they not known:

Romans 3:18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

And;

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Galatians 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Galatians 5:21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

You see? One little disobedience has started a whole world of sin, corruption, and hurt.

This is what you and I have done to our Godly heritage.

Only Jesus’ shed blood can change our corrupt heart and only our repentance can accept His gift of forgiveness and new life, and get us back to our Godly heritage.
