When You Shouldn’t Flex
Earlier this year I started putting selfies on my Facebook page. After my workouts I always take a picture. It’s a way of accountability for me.
I like to take a flex 💪 photo!!! Friday’s are Flex Day for many! But why not make it everyday? Ha.
Go ahead and flex after your workout. Don’t worry about what others in the gym may be thinking. They may be thinking, “I should take a flex shot.” Or they may be thinking, “What is that person doing? Are they nuts?” 😂
Again, don’t worry about that.
There is one time however when you shouldn’t flex. I’m not talking about flexing your biceps. Rather, I’m referring to Gods word.
When it comes to the Scriptures, there’s no room for FLEXING. There’s no room for…
Trying to Bend the Scriptures to get them to say what we want them to say…
Adjust to change…
Does that make sense? All 66 books of the Bible are INSPIRED, 2 Timothy 3:16-17. They are the words of God. Therefore, man has no right to change or adjust what the Bible has to say.
We don’t have the right to try and make the Scriptures say what we want it to say. Rather, we need to listen to Gods word and do what God wants us to do.
I’m all about flexing when it comes to our workouts, but not when it comes to the word of God!
God is our authority. He is our Creator, Genesis 1:26. Therefore, He has the right to tell us what to do.
We need to listen to God in all things. We need to listen to Him with respect to our marriages, sexual purity, speech, salvation, etc.
We don’t have the authority or the right to adjust or change the Scriptures. There’s no flexing when it comes to Gods word!
Jesus said in John 14:6, “… I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
We can’t adjust those words. There’s no room for flexing with the word of God. Now some people may think,
“That’s too rigid…”
“That will offend people…”
We should be more concerned about offending God! We should be concerned about being pleasing to God.
We can do that by standing firm on His word.
Did you workout today? Take a photo flexing!
Did you read from the Bible today? Remember, there’s no flexing with what God has to say! Trust God and His word.
