Personal Reflections

Not Knowing Is Not An Excuse

My First Sergeant told me, “Not knowing is not an excuse; the duty roster has been posted on the bulletin board for over a week.”

I was late showing up for Charge of Quarters duty because I had not checked the company bulletin board in over a week. I would have missed showing up at all if my friend had not noticed and woke me up.

The stated requirement, by all Company NCOs, was every Soldier was to check the Company Bulletin Board twice a day to ensure they were aware of the latest unit information, requirements, and duty roster changes.

We have a bulletin board in our hearts. Have you checked it lately?

“In reality, the truth of God is known instinctively, for God has embedded this knowledge inside every human heart. Opposition to truth cannot be excused on the basis of ignorance, because from the creation of the world, the invisible qualities of God’s nature have been made visible, such as his eternal power and transcendence. He has made his wonderful attributes easily perceived, for seeing the visible makes us understand the invisible. So then, this leaves everyone without excuse. (Rom 1:19, 20 TPT)”

Our loving, gracious, kind God wants us to know him today and be with him forever. Check out what Father God has written on your heart and look around at his wonderful creation. Also, consider what your naked eye can’t see, like the trillion billion water molecules in a drop of water and the estimated 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the universe.  

The Gospel, the Good News, is more about how good God is than how bad we are.

He loves you so much He sent Jesus to bring you to him and Holy Spirit to help us know him.

“When the roll is called up yonder” will you be there?
