Feeling good, we all like feeling good. We all want that atta boy or that pat on the back. It’s good to be encouraged but there’s times when a person needs to be told exactly how it is.
I had a preacher tell me one time he wasn’t going to talk about sin anymore because it offended people. It’s true, some people get offended when a person preaches about sin. I’d rather them hear the truth and possibly repent than to hear a feel good sermon and possibly die and go to hell!
You wanna know what makes me feel good. I like hearing a good sermon about how God loves the sinner but hates the sin. I like hearing about how God’s mercy and grace is offered to a lost and dying world. I like seeing people walk the aisle at the end of a service with their hearts broken because of their sins!
It makes me feel good that God will bust my chops when I decide to do what I want, when I want, and how I want! It makes me feel good that God disciplines me when I put others, or things before Him. God does this because He loves me, and that makes me feel good!
Remember, God only disciplines His children, He doesn’t spank the devils children. If you’re a child of God and He’s busting your chops or spanking you for some reason, be thankful!
Proverbs 3:12, “For whom the Lord loves He corrects; even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights!”
