Are you committed to your relationship with God?
When two people get married, “the bride comes down the aisle in a white dress—because she’s supposed to be pure—(and) the brother got a black tuxedo on ‘cause he ain’t tryin’ to fool anybody,” said Miles.
And then they exchange vows, committing to each other for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer—“I’m with you no matter what. You need to have that with God!”
“I’m with you no matter what. You need to have that with God!”
When people go to church, it should be because they want God. The circumstances in our life are going to fluctuate up and down—guaranteed. There will be good times and bad times.
The Bible tells a story about a man named Job. He was a good man who honored God. In Job 1, the devil told God that Job only honored Him because of what he got in return. “If you take that stuff from him, he will curse you to your face!”—said Miles, paraphrasing the conversation between God and the devil.
“What would the devil have to do in your life for you to curse God? If you can name something, that means you’re using God. God doesn’t want that kind of relationship.”
