Devo Has the church lost its sensitivity
Ephesians 4:17-19 (NIV)
17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.
Paul is talking about non-believers here and yet it sounds like todays church. I see a church that has lost its sensitivity to sin and has hardened its heart to sin. They condone sin in the church under a false doctrine of pseudo grace. They use this grace as a license to live in sin and every kind of impurity imaginable. They even condemn those who would teach otherwise as be under the law and not the grace that Jesus paid such a high price for. Notice Paul says they are full of greed. They sell this pseudo grace at their churches, TV, radio or any other means possible to make themselves rich telling itching ears what they want to hear, because these people do not want to repent. Repent means to stop doing what you’re doing and turn around a hundred and eighty degrees and walk back to God. Some would even tell you don’t have to repent leading people to hell with them. Blaspheming the blood of Jesus. Their condemnation is waiting for them if they don’t repent. May God have mercy.
