A man wanted to please and impress God. He said, “God, I can make things just like you can.” God said, “OK, Let’s see.” The man reached down and got a hand full of dirt and began to mold and form it. God said, “Hey! Make your own dirt.” This reminds me of many today who think they are pleasing God by creating religious practices not found in His word, thinking they are doing good works and pleasing Him. In reality, they are condemning themselves. Jesus said, “Many will say to me in that day, “Lord, Lord,” have we not ...done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.’” (Matt. 7:22,23). God has given His law and expects us to remain within it’s boundaries when doing good works. Man has NO right, religiously, to make any laws for himself, even if he thinks he’s pleasing God. God doesn’t want us to worship Him, except as He has directed, regardless of how sincere we may be. If you practice good works without Christ’s authority, then when you stand before Him in judgement, He’ll point out that when it comes to His laws, you can’t make them like He can. Instead of blessings, all you’ll have is a hand full of dirt.
