Simplicity

Sometimes to think about.

Simplicity

10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Romans 13:3

At times the simplicity of the Bible is overwhelming in is naked and piercing truth.  If you love someone, you will not cause them harm. If you look at the unrest in our society, in our personal relationships. If you look at the pain and sorrow caused in all forms from every spectrum, it is due in large part because of the utter absence of love.

You’ve Been Warned

Something to think about.

You’ve Been Warned

“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.” Hebrews 10:26-27 NIV

Some people believe that they can wait until later in life to turn to God. They believe that they can enjoy the sinful things of this world and later turn back to God. They think once they have had their fill of sin God will still be waiting for their repentance. For those of you that may think that this is indeed possible, “no sacrifice for sins is left.” Knowledge of the truth of God is not license or freedom to sin. Your opportunity for salvation is forfeited, and you have no further recourse if you “deliberately keep on sinning.” This deception that you can later turn back to God is not possible.  The sacrifice of Christ is not a frivolous event that you can pick up and discard at will. It is the line in the sand, of your eternal existence and it will not last forever, and once it is crossed, it can’t be undone.  The call of God may only come once in your life, and if you think you can pass on it until it suits you, God’s offer may expire by then. God is not sitting, waiting with bated breath for your response.
