Consequences for Conforming | Kim Chipman

S~ And you will know that I am the Lord, for you have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you. Ezekiel 11:12 (NIV)

O~ This is a time of the Lord’s judgement on Jerusalem. It seems harsh, but this is why – they conformed. The other why? So they will know He is the Lord.

A~ Oh, how easy to mold and conform! To drift towards the world’s standards and away from Yours. Being in the Word DAILY is crucial to preventing the drift. Without returning regularly to the plumb line You establish it is easy to drift away and do what everyone else is doing. It seems right. I can make sense of it, justify it.

But there ARE consequences for those choices. And while drifting may be easy, my responsibility is to intentionally fight against the drift and PURSUE YOU.

P~ Lord, show me today the ways I can honor You with my life. Show me where I am justifying conforming where You want me set apart – salt and light in my world. Help me to honor you in each small thing. For Your glory. So that I will know You are the Lord. I love You!
