Seven, single, self-sufficient women asked the same man to marry them just so they wouldn’t be ridiculed by the general public. They wanted his name and nothing else. They had zero intentions of changing their lifestyle.
Maybe you know somebody that calls themselves a Christian but isn’t living for Jesus. Maybe you are that person?
The seven women would have probably appeased the public with their lie, but the man whose name was to be used would know the truth–it was just a front.
If you’re claiming Jesus as yours I ask you, are you deceptively using Him to make others happy? Or is it because you have asked Him to be your Savior, the Lord of your life?
Jesus wants you to have an intimate, personal relationship with Him. He wants to be more to you than just a name used at your convenience.
