Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - August 20, 2008

Good morning,

Our devotion for today comes from Romans 1:21-22 "Their thinking became useless.  Their foolish minds were filled with darkness.  They said they were wise, but they became fools." 

Wherever you are today, to meditate on this; since the hedonist has never seen the hand who made the universe, he assumes there is no life beyond the here and now.  He believes there is no truth beyond this room.  No purpose beyond his own pleasure.  No divine factor.  He has no concern for the eternal.

The hedonist says, "Who cares? I may be bad, but so what?  What I do is my business."  He's more concerned about satisfying his passions than in knowing the Father.  His life is so desperate for pleasure that he has no time or room for God.

Is he right?  Is it OK to spend our days thumbing our noses at God and living it up?  Paul says, "Absolutely not!"  According to Romans 1, we lose more than stained-glass windows when we dismiss God.  We lose our standard, our purpose, and our worship.

Have a blessed and worshipful day!

Your brother in Christ,
J. H. Flakes, III
