According to the dictionary, complacency is defined as self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies
Complacency in a Christian’s life is dangerous. We fall into a routine where we ignore God, ignore His gentle whispers, and forget who He is and what He can do for us.
All we have to do is place our complete attention and focus on HIM! Not ourselves…HIM!
I definitely do not want to forget who the Lord is. I don’t want to forget His kindness, gentleness, and goodness. I don’t want to forget anything about Christ.
Yet sometimes I fall short. Okay, scratch that. I don’t sometimes fall short. I DO fall short. A LOT!
Lately, I’ve been in the danger zone of complacency. I find myself leaning into the world rather than leaning on Christ.
I find myself just going through the motions.
I don’t want this. I don’t want to just go through the motions as a Christian. You know…going to church, singing the songs, reading my Bible. I want to WANT Christ. I don’t want to make it a routine where I do these things without it changing my life.
James 4:17 says, “Remember it is a sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.”
