Are you locked up and don’t even know it… Are you just a glorified slave?
Romans 1:25, “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen.”
We live in a world that is full of technology that is supposed to make life easier, but instead we all know that it just makes our lives more complicated. The fact that we can sit with our heads buried in our phones and not even recognize that there is someone next to you struggling is proof of that. This web of technology does entangle us in a never ending web of busyness and hurry, which makes us forget about the fact that there are real people hurting around us. Having our cell phones with us everywhere we go including the bathroom makes us forget the importance of human contact and even takes away time from God. When we wake up and the first thing that we do is look to see how many likes we have on a post or maybe you check to see your Twitter numbers… When we do these things there is something completely wrong with our thought process! The first thing that we should do in the morning is not to check social media but it should be to connect with God! Have a real heart to heart with our creature. We are too busy with the created things that we phase out the one who made them all possible. Imagine if you spent as much time with God as you do on Facebook, I have to be totally honest with all of you if I did that my relationship with God would be much, much stronger than it is now. It is sad to think that we have all this technology to get things at a moment’s notice yet we forget that God just wants a little of that precious time that we are trying to save. Today I will look at my life and see how I can truly give myself a way to God…
So what will keep you from God…?
Romans 8:38-39, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
I am convinced that in this modern world that we live in we could add to this list; neither cell phone or tablet, computer nor job…
Whom are you a slave to? We can be a slave to technology or we can be a slave to God… The choose is yours!
