No Excuses

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. (John 14:15 ESV)

    The Bible is not like trail mix, where you pick out the parts you like.  It should be more like a sponge to you, where you absorb all you can of it.
    John 14;15  '' “If you love me, keep my commands.''  John 14;23-24  ''Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.''
     Excuses...I'll bet God has heard them all.  The Bible includes all of us in the commands we are to obey.  There is no exemption clause to add your name to in the back of The Book.  Sin begins in our minds when we try to justify what goes against God's word.
    The Bible is God breathed words that will never change no matter how one may try to twist it, shake it, and rattle it into your own version.
