Standing on the Inside

Adrian Rogers

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…” – 1 Samuel 15:23

There is a classic story about a father who told his little four year old son to sit down, but the son didn’t sit down. So the father said a second time, “Son, I said sit down.” The boy still didn’t sit down. Finally, the father took him by the shoulders and forcefully placed him in the chair. He said, “Now, Son, sit there!” The little boy answered, “Okay, I may be sitting down but—” he added defiantly, “I’m standing up on the inside!”

A lot of us are in that mode. A rebellious spirit is not always discernible except to God and the person who has it.

Is there some area in your life where you’re “standing up on the inside”? If on the inside you still harbor a rebellious spirit, you are not really “obeying.”

  1. I read these every morning, thanks for them. I love Adrian Rogers also, I watch him every Sunday at some point in the day off of my DVR.

    Funny story, though. The first time I ever heard him, not too long after I was saved, was on the radio. I was immediately struck by his incredible voice. When I found out his church was in Memphis, only couple of hours from me, I ran home and said we should really go see him i person. I was quite disappointed to learn he was quite dead.

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
