Follow God’s System
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. (Romans 1:26-28)
People today (even within our churches) desire to be politically correct, but they have no issue with being spiritually incorrect. God says that any affection, which in the Greek means lust, that is outside of His designed plan is shameful and comes with negative consequences.
As an example, Paul wrote about God’s natural design for both women and men. He stated that when people change the natural way God planned relationships to be, they rebel against nature. When God’s design is tampered with, the outcome is death. When men are with men and women with women, they open the door for death in their own bodies. This is one of the reasons why Sodom and Gomorrah had to be burned by fire.
Countless diseases have been born and spread because of man’s refusal to live life according to the way God designed us to be.
God’s plan is for you to live a healthy, long, prosperous life. God has a system He purposely designed so you can live the best life possible. Follow His system.
Practical Application – Ask God to search your heart and your life and to reveal to you anything you have not submitted to His ways. Decide to turn from those things and follow His Word in every decision you make.
