Aimless, chaotic and dis-organized are terms associated with haphazard. Although there is nothing wrong about being casual, some things require your full attention. Unfortunately, as standards across the board continue to decline, a new mindset has developed, “why should I follow all the rules if no one else does?”
This seed of doubt has inspired a generation with a faith that can be best described as haphazard. On Sunday’s, most people put on their happy faces. By Monday, the memory of church often fades, depleted by stress and worry. If traces of faith are neglected by believers, the love for God and others can disappear, replaced with selfishness.
Subsequently, many walk away disappointed, like the rich young ruler who tried to impress Jesus in Matthew 19:16-25. The moral of this story is that no one is ever good enough to earn their way to heaven, Romans 3:9-12. Regardless of your level of commitment, redemption can only be obtained through Christ, Romans 5:6-8. While a haphazard faith may be a current reality, pray that the Word of the Lord, Romans 10:17, will resurrect dead or dying souls.
