Scripture of the Day - May 21, 2012

Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

I gave a friend the name of a prominent natural health doctor so she could look at some of his product. When she googled his name she came up with all sorts of negative sites regarding him so she called me with her concerns. I googled his name and did not end up on the same page as her. The difference is, she added the word "quack" and of course came across all sorts of sites that criticized him.
Many people do that to God. They look at Him with a tainted view, because their hearts are darkened. They imagine negative things about Him and blame Him for all that is wrong in the world. They don't glorify Him as God and they are not thankful for all He has done, partly because they are too vain in their imaginations and therefore blinded to His goodness.
This natural health doctor gets a lot of criticism because he fights against the big pharmaceutical companies, he goes against the status quo. When Jesus walked the earth He went against the status quo too and was hated for it. Those who follow after Him are also criticized and hated because they don't blend in and go with the flow of this world.
But rejoice oh saint of God if you are hated for His name's sake. God will bless you for standing strong for Him. Luke 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
