Romans 1:18, 28 GNB: God’s anger is revealed from heaven against all the sin and evil of the people whose evil ways prevent the truth from being known. Because those people refuse to keep in mind the true knowledge about God, he has given them over to corrupted minds, so that they do the things that they should not do.
From today’s text, it’s obvious that lack of the true knowledge of God has a direct consequence on one’s life here on earth. It affects the way we think and act. It leads to one having a corrupted mind and acting the way that does not please God. No matter how hard one tries, one cannot do it without God. One is an utter failure without his maker.
Therefore, there is need to seek him diligently in his word and get to know him better. This will make our minds sound and our actions in tandem with his will. Hence, we can safely conclude that the major challenge our world is facing a lack of true knowledge of God which is responsible for the ills we see in our society today.
Most people wonder why they act the way they do even when they don’t mean to. It’s simply because they left God out of their lives. We spend a huge amount of money and time to educate the body but little is done to educate the soul about the knowledge of God. That’s why the scripture says that “my people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6.
Declare to yourself loud: That I may know you and the power of your resurrection. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, help me to know you more. In Jesus Name. Amen.
