The writer of Hebrews asks, “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” Heb 2:3
Our country and our world is reeling with uncertainty. Men’s hearts are failing them for fear. Trouble is on every side.
Many don’t know who to trust anymore. Remember the day when Americans felt that, by and large, we could trust our political leaders to do what was right? Well, maybe that was naive, even then, but now the darkness has been brought to light and where do we stand? We stand on shaky ground, for sure, unless we stand upon the Rock, Christ Jesus.
It seems that the days are racing toward more and more confusion. Those who do not acknowledge The Righteous One do evil and call it good. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20.
Violence and moral decay has come in like a flood. Our children don’t get the chance to experience the joy and purity of childhood. They are inundated with the evils of this world all around them.
It seems that even those who should know better barely acknowledge the existence of their Creator. Why do people think of God as some far off, impersonal being, and even worse, have the foolish audacity to think that they can choose to believe or not. Ha! In the end, all believe!
But, believing is not the be all and end all. You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. James 2:19
It’s not about saying that you believe, it’s about giving your life over to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. There is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved. That’s just how it is. The proud in heart cannot receive this truth.
The time is now. The Spirit of God is calling. Do you hear His voice? Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts. Hebrews 3:8
I pray that if you are reading this, and you are away from God, that you will open your heart, simply yield to His Spirit and ask Him to forgive your rebellion and become your Lord.
If you do this, sincerely, your future is secured and no matter what comes your way, you can have the assurance that it is well with your soul, because you stand upon the Rock!
