Ills of the Human Race

man sits, contemplating

Man condemns himself by his refusal of God’s way of salvation. In love and mercy, God is offering to men and women a way of escape, a way of salvation, a hope and anticipation of better things. Man in his blindness, stupidity, stubbornness, egotism, and love of sinful pleasure, refuses God’s simple method of escaping the pangs of eternal banishment. Suppose you were sick and called a doctor who came and gave you a prescription. But after thinking it over you decided to ignore his advice and to refuse the medicine. When he returned a few days later, he might have found your condition much worse. Could you blame the doctor? Could you hold him responsible? He gave you the prescription, he prescribed the remedy. But you refused it!

Just so, God prescribes the remedy for the ills of the human race. That remedy is personal faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. The remedy is to be “born again.” If we deliberately refuse it, then we must suffer the consequence; and we cannot blame God. Is it God’s fault that we refuse the remedy?

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, as You sat looking over Jerusalem, You wept. Give me the same compassion for those who have not accepted Your remedy and been born again.

    Looking in the Prayer Journal about Wyoming was excited about the Christian author, Stormie O’Martian. She did have a rough time but the Lord pulled her out of the pit and gave her a new life just as He will do for all who call on His name!

    The biggest mistake anyone can make in their life is to decline God’s amazing offer to join his family. Many have gone to their grave only to find out they made a huge mistake by denying Christ . Scripture is clear it’s appointed for man to die once then comes judgement. The good news is where there’s life there’s hope, so it’s not too late.

    Amen in Jesus Christ’s name.

    When I began reading my Holy Bible at quite a young age, I had many questions, which my parents were unwilling to attempt to answer; my grandparents were more willing yet they referred me to Sunday School; suffice it to say not everyone there appreciated my inquisitiveness, and more often than not my questions about the Sabbath, etc. went unanswered, or I was told to stop asking; seek out better teachers – knock, and the door shall be opened.

      We call that inquisitive. If the inquisitiveness is a real seeking of God’s truth, “the door will be opened.” However, sometimes our inquisitiveness is an effort to divert away from His truth — to find fault with it so we avoid facing the ultimate realities of living the Christian life. I’ve always had a problem with preachers saying just believe and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and you will be saved — and in fact, if you truly believe with every fiber of your being, then it’s true, because you will seek His will and His way. I suspect many, however, expect that one alter-call experience as the “end-all” with no real commitment to daily study of God’s word and will for their on-going daily walk. Manna was given only for one day !

    Amen!!! I pray for all my family, relatives, friends and everyone in all in this earth which everyone and everything belongs to my Father God.
