i have been reading romans for my own personal "read your bible every day" reading time and last night i read romans 2... it was interesting because the night before i read romans 1 and it said "some people are mean and rude and don't worship god they worship idols and they sin and they are BAD" and i was thinking "ya i am so not that! they are bad!" and then romans 2 said "but don't think you are any better than the people previously mentioned; you are one of them! just because you have god doesn't mean you don't sin. you need to live in god to not sin. just because you know the word doesn't mean you follow it. just because you know how to get into heaven doesn't mean you will." this really 'spoke' to me just because it said "don't say 'don't steal' if you steal yourself" i have been focusing on knowing whats right and wrong and 'memorizing' it and now i know that all i have done... thats just the easy part. i need to live the bible. live the 10 commandments. me telling someone that "thou shall not steal" won't effect half as much as "i have never stolen in my entire life because god told me not to and because i followed him he has provided for me everything i have ever needed." so new thing ;) "LIVE GOD"
