15 See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;16 that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal.17 For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.
Have you ever denied Christ because you were embarrassed by what someone might think? Or kept silent when you knew you were being prompted by the Holy Spirit to speak up. Not out of fear of you inabilities, but fear of another’s opinion. Well think about what is being said in verse 17 about the unholy act of Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. INSTANT GRATIFICATION! When reality hit of what he had just given away he sought after repentance with tears. This big manly man sought for a second chance and he was denied.
Why? Because he had no regards for his inheritance until it suited him. SELFISHNESS! Let us not be unholy and throw away what God has given us through the sacrifice of His Holy Blameless Son, because we’re more concerned about how someone who is equally filthy as we are. No, let us rise up and look upon the Throne of the Lord and acknowledge its Glory, it’s Majestic Beauty and sit in AWE of this Perfect, Powerful, Being that LOVES US COMPLETELY! Let us set standards daily, hourly, moment by moment that attempt to measure up to Him. Never will we ever get there, but every day you and I should be striving to live that blameless life that He looks at when He looks upon us through Jesus Christ.
JESUS IS GOD< JESUS IS THE POINT<JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW THE LORD, THE ONLY WAY THE LORD CAN AND WILL LOOK UPON US IS THROUGH THE IMAGE OF THE ONLY ONE WHO IS RIGHTEOUS ENOUGH TO BE GAZED UPON BY GOD, JESUS CHRIST. EMMANUEL!
