The Blame Game by Pastor Ed Young
“…For the accuser…accuses them before our God day and night…” He accuses those of us who know Christ personally day and night. Over and over and over. “They are not worthy, God. They are not worth it, God. They are sinners, God. Come on, God.” You know what God says? God laughs at the evil one. He laughs at the master of the Blame Game. He says, “They are mine. They are my children.” You see, when my four children were born, I cannot adequately describe the love and passion and joy we felt. There is nothing that my children can do to cut off our relationship biologically. They can rob banks, commit murders, you name it. They are still my children. They always will be. You come to know Jesus Christ personally, you are adopted into the family of God, I don’t care what you do from that moment on, there is nothing that can cause you to break that relationship, to leave that family. Yes, we can be out of fellowship with God due to sin but nothing can break that relationship. So when the evil one begins to point the finger of blame at you and you start blaming yourself, just call him a liar, an accuser. Just fold up the Blame Game, put the pieces away, take the box and throw it out. It may be a good visual for you to do when you go home, take the board game from your bulletin, wad it up and throw it in the trash. The Blame Game.
Now I want to do a little exercise for you, a little aerobic activity. I am going to count to three. When I say one, two, three, I want you to take your index finger and point to your neighbor. Now no eye gouging like on WWF. Just point. One, two, three.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fellowship Church Grapevine
