Gimme a Break

Romans 1:25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.

The last part of this verse stands out to me. It’s like Paul said, excuse me for a minute, I need a praise break.

Stay mindful. He’s talking about the foolishness of sin. He’s giving us a report on all the wrongs of idol worship and sexual immorality and really, he’s telling us about the filthiness of sin. And right in the middle of it all, he gives God a shout out, saying, God created everything and is worthy of eternal praise! Eternal praise is everlasting adoration. And God deserves it all!

Image (2)It’s almost like the more he talked about sin, the more God became worthy of praise. The more disgusting the thought of sin became, the more pure God became. The more he talked about the unfaithfulness of man, the more obvious it became that God was faithful.

That’s how it should be with us. We shouldn’t feel like it’s necessary for God to do something in our favor in order for us to praise and worship Him. We should take a praise break simply because of who God is, and the fact that He is nothing like us! Hallelujah!

Can we change these commercials to praise break?
