• “One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there’s always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

Ignoring the Symptoms by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/15/11

“Does my neck look red to you? Do you see a bite or anything?”

“I don’t know. It could be a little red.”

“I think I’m going to call the doctor.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When you experience some physical symptom, you want to make sure everything’s okay.

“Do I feel hot to you?”

“Ummm, maybe.”

“Maybe I should get the thermometer.”

Nancy: But when you start to think something’s wrong spiritually, are you as quick to diagnose the problem?

“I hope I didn’t offend her. Oh, I’ll deal with it in my prayer time tomorrow. I’ll probably remember it then.”

Nancy: When our consciences bother us, we need to get to the root of the problem. Ignoring sin in our lives is even more dangerous than ignoring a fever, rash, or aches and pains. So the next time your conscience bothers you, don’t just ignore the symptoms. Agree with God about His diagnosis, and ask Him to show you how to make it right.
