Making a Mockery Out of God | Heb. 6:4,6

Read This Passage: Hebrews 6:1-8

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit … if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

Hebrew 6:4,6 NKJV

God, we must understand, is fully committed to all of those that sincerely trust and believe in Him – He is loyal and faithful in His fellowship with us sincere believers. We must understand that the Lord desires for us to be as equally committed to Him as He is to us. What this means is that God desires for you to be faithful to Him as He is faithful to you. The last thing the Lord wants is for you to “cheat” on Him.

Now, we all have our missteps as none of us are perfect which is not OK. Yet, at the same time, God is merciful to give us another opportunity to make corrections, and when we do make those corrections, He will forgive us. However, we must not confuse our missteps with one who completely falls out of the faith. If you ever proclaimed to be committed to the Lord, but you lived your life committed to sin, God is not going to be pleased. As the writer of the book of Hebrews said, when you make a mockery out of God and in your so-called “faith” put Him to open shame by being committed to living in sin, there will not be a renewal for you again.

Don’t ever break a vow that you have made to the Lord. As it is written in Ecclesiastes, “When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; For He has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you have vowed – better not to vow than to vow and not pay (Eccl. 5:4-5).” If you say you’re committed to the Lord, then I encourage you to walk in that commitment to Him.
