Just take a few moments with me and think…..Think about what if it is true? What if there is a God who is Holy and set apart from everything else.
How do we as humans get to have a relationship or spend even a second in his presence? Can we do good things? Maybe be nicer than some people we know? How about go to church and give money in the plate? Would that do it? Could I be His friend then…..?? No that wouldn’t be possible.
In Mark Chapters 4 and 5 in the New Testament of the Bible we see some amazing things from Jesus. He calms a Storm- God of Nature… He heals a man who has a demon-God of Spiritual…He then heals a woman who has spent 12 years going to the doctor for her medical condition….He is Lord of the Physical…Then to top it all off He raises a man’s daughter back to life after she died…..He is God of Life…So why can’t and don’t people believe Him? Why do people follow other things that never promised eternal life or having their sins forgiven?
See there it is- Why do people not want to have their sins forgiven? I am sure the list is long but if we could just take a second and think…..Think about what Jesus has to offer. Think about your life and His promises. Think past the hurtful things others have done in the name of Christianity….Jesus is standing there waiting…Waiting to forgive your sins…Waiting to be the Lord of your life…..Today is your day.
