Answering The Big Lie

The Big Lie is that you will find true happiness and fulfillment by violating God’s will. Now it’s true that you may find momentary happiness and partial fulfillment in violating God’s will. But it’s fleeting, and you’ll just keep chasing the wind. What you need to learn is to sacrifice those fleeting moments on the altar of praise to God. And this is where the battle for sanctification is most real. People can be willing to praise God, but not willing to give up their sin. However, the more you learn the true joy of God over the pleasures of the self, the more sanctified you will become in practice. And this is how you progressively find true happiness and fulfillment in God. It is a life of worship that is worth the self-denying sacrifice. The presence of God is greater than the pleasures of this world. Renew your mind.
