Why Would Anyone Want to Deny Their Savior?

Why Would Anyone Want to Deny Their Savior?

reighn_deny_him If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us. (2 Timothy 2:12)

This verse is speaking to those who know Christ but choose, for whatever reason to deny Him. You can’t deny what you don’t know.

This daily devotional asks this question, why would anyone want to deny their Savior, the one who suffered, bleed and died for us that we might live forever?

What are some ways we could end up denying our Savior? Knowing better, we make poor choices that draw us away from Him. Every choice we make has consequences. If we make an impulsive bad choice when we know better could really hurt our spiritual progression.

Maybe we are lazy and in that laziness fail to follow the teachings of Christ. Perhaps in our pride we think we know enough to make choices without praying for confirmation of that choice.

There are many ways one can deny their Savior but perhaps a positive approach would work best. What are things we can do to cement our relationship with our Redeemer?

Pray always. When we are not in a place to kneel and pray we can always pray in our heart and mind seeking his protection physically or spiritually. Seeking help from Him always. This also keeps us humble knowing that we rely on him.

Strive to keep his commandments and repent when we fall short, relying the saving graces of our Lord and Savior. Let us always work to keep ourselves in His good graces so that we might enjoy His tender mercies.
