God has spared us each time we fell short of perfection. Every time we have sinned against Him. Every time we disobeyed. He never failed to forgive us.. Over AND over again...
We have taken advantage of His mercy.
We have relied on the mercy He would show at the end of this "season" of sin. We expected Him. We had it all planned out too... Go to the altar and pray that God would forgive us of our sinful nature.. But then, we sinned again, the same sin... Again, we prayed but this time we knew He would forgive us, so we didn't pray as "hard" or as "sincere".... We went out and sinned again... The same sin! And every time we went back to sin, we took advantage of His mercy when we came back to the altar. There's the pattern. We sin, we ask for forgiveness but then we sin again. Every time we come back to pray and ask God to forgive us, it's like the Blood/forgiveness/mercy looses it's affect on us. :/ Just like when our bodies get used to (an example) caffeine, the caffeine doesn't get us all hyper-it has no affect.
But didn't we think that God gets tired of us using Him?
One day, He is going to get mad at us.. Like our parents did when we were little. We kept jumping on the couch when we shouldn't have :/ boy... I learned to not jump on the couch! Lol... So why can't it be that way with God? Learn from the mistake and stop doing it. Because one day His mercy won't be shown to us.... and well, God does have a belt doesn't He? Lol
Get what I'm sayin'?
