Have you ever had a cavity, a tooth that decayed? If so, you know it isn’t a good thing. Can you imagine what a bad thing it would have been if after Jesus was buried in the tomb, His body decayed? It’s what the Jewish leaders hoped would happen. It’s what the Roman government hoped would happen. It’s what many in our day hope happened. Why? Because they don’t want God in their lives. They want to do their own thing without consequences for violating God’s eternal laws. Romans 1:18-25 points out the seriousness of this mentality, of those who ignore the glory of the incorruptible Christ who will never undergo decay. “21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image…24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie…” Some people ignore their teeth. Some people ignore God. Nature dictates the consequences for both.
Lord, You are incorruptible. May we who are saved represent You to others so they turn to You and are saved.
