June 2, 2022 – Has God Given You Over?
Sermon: 2037 – Crossing God’s Deadline
Pray Over This
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting.”
Three times in the first chapter of Romans, God speaks of giving people up: “God gave them up” (Romans 1:24); “God gave them up” (Romans 1:26); and “God gave them over” (Romans 1:28). The old time preachers used to call that, “When the lights go out on the road to Hell.” This is when the Holy Spirit of God no longer speaks to a man. In Genesis 6:3, God said before the flood, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever.” Don’t get the idea that the Holy Spirit’s conviction is going to stay in your heart and in your life if you continually reject Him. You may come to a place of sudden destruction in your spirit as well as in your mind, a place in which the Holy Spirit of God no longer speaks to you and God no longer draws you. God has given us this warning in advance as a means of His grace. We must respond while we can.
Ask God today who He is calling you to speak with about the offer of His forgiveness. Ask Him for wisdom and next steps in obedience in this regard.
