The Journey with Ron Moore

Grieving God | Psalm 106:34-39

Today's Passage: Psalm 106:34-39
Key Verses: Psalm 106:36, 39

They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them . . . They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves.

Are you an influencer or are you being influenced? Are you a leader or are you being led? Are you making a statement for Christ in your world or is the world making its statement on you?

Israel owned the history of God's deliverance and his assurances for the future, but instead of standing for God they bowed to anti-God forces. They forgot God's promises and bought into the world's philosophy.

How about you? Are you standing strong for Christ in your school, office and neighborhood? Do you proclaim the message of Christ in your world oróbe honestóare you living the world's message of materialism, position and identity? Thomas Watson well said, "The sins of the wicked anger Godóbut the sins of professing Christians grieve him." It's not a "happy Bible story" question, but one that needs to be asked nevertheless: Are you grieving God with your sins?

Father, search me and make known my heart. Show me if there is anything in my life that is grieving you. Then give me the courage and strength to change. In Jesus' name. Amen.
