Why did God give U rules?

If you want to make your own rules, invent a game. If you try to replace God’s rules with your rules, you’ll wreck your life.

When desire rules and rules are not desired, life becomes congested with negative consequences. It’s amazing how many problems you can avoid in life by playing fair and following God’s rules. God’s rules are designed to hinder and hold back evil. Violating them welcomes evil.

Rebellion is in the human heart. If you don’t brake your desires, you’ll break God’s rules. When you break God’s rules, He no longer rules in your life and you distance yourself from His kingdom.

God’s rules were not made to be broken. They were made to protect us from self-destruction. When we ignore God’s rules we begin to experience inner anarchy.

If we humans were good people, we’d do good and avoid doing bad, even if there were no rules. When human emotions and behaviors are allowed expressions that violate God’s rules, evil is at hand.

You don’t have to break God’s rules to be creative. Just look at all that He has made by following them.

If parents have the right to make rules for their children, God has the right to make rules for us humans. Both the concepts of grace and of atheism are frequently used as an excuse to break God’s rules.

The more we break God’s rules, the less spontaneous joy we experience and the more we feel the need for artificial happiness. When rules are removed and human desires are unrestrained, it’s soon obvious that the results aren’t good.

Your conscience knows God’s rules and reminds you of them. If God’s rules didn’t matter, you wouldn’t feel guilty for breaking them.

The way I want to write is to use words to support what’s right and to overcome what’s wrong. So I write on.

To follow God’s rules
Is a struggle
But it makes for
Good trouble.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
