No Excuss

They are without excuse.

Romans 1:20

People who do not attend church often give some rather interesting reasons for not doing so. To show the weaknesses of those excuses, someone has compiled a humorous list called “Ten Reasons Why I Never Wash.”

1.I was forced to wash as a child.

2.People who wash are hypocrites—they think they are cleaner than others.

3.There are so many kinds of soap, I could never decide which was right.

4.I used to wash, but it got boring.

5.I wash only at Christmas or Easter.

6.None of my friends wash.

7.I will start washing when I am older.

8.I really do not have time for washing.

9.The bathroom is not warm enough.

10.People who make soap are only after your money.

The application is obvious. Most excuses for not going to church are weak. So too are the reasons people offer for not giving thought to spiritual issues and for not accepting Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Despite the self-evident reality of a Creator (Roms 1:19-20) and the “many infallible proofs” that Christ is all He claimed to be (Acts 1:3), people often use ridiculous, self-serving excuses as reasons to avoid a relationship with the Lord. The apostle Paul warned, “They are without excuse” (Roms 1:20).

When it comes to something as serious as your spiritual condition, do not be caught making excuses. There is no good excuse for ignoring God.

Bible Reading

Romans 1:16-25.


Heavenly and Gracious Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name. Thank You for Sundays. I praise and honour Your name. This is the day that you have made, I will rejoice and be glad for all that You have in store for me. Thank You, for every opportunity to meet with other Christians to worship You. Amen.
