JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF MEN

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF?

What is the most important thing to you in life?

God, love, family, health, friends, happiness, knowledge…..?

The following comment was made by an individual responding to a recent poll about how important God is in our lives:

“What has he done for me? Is my life depending on him or is my life depending on what I’m doing with it? My life is well without believing in him. I really don’t care about someone I never knew, because if I do I should care for all people I don’t even know. And doing that is something not very sane. It’s not normal. I don’t care for people I don’t know because they can be all bad as far as I know.”

Proverbs 30:3 I neither learned wisdom Nor have knowledge of the Holy One.

WOW! Do you see what this person is saying? IT IS NOT NORMAL TO CARE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE! He does not want to be abnormal and care about God, who he does not know, may mean that he would have to care about other people, who this person does not know. How sad! This is the epitome of an unsaved person who does not want to know the God who sent His only Son to take on the flesh of a man of this world and sacrifice Himself on the CROSS spilling His blood for the sins of the world so that person can be saved from eternal judgment. Why would he want that?

Ecclesiastes 6:12 For who knows what is good for man in life, all the days of his vain life which he passes like a shadow? Who can tell a man what will happen after him under the sun?

Those who do not know God and say that He does not exist and like to make disparaging remarks about those who do believe in God are scared to the core to actually try to know God because they are intensely afraid that they may find out that God really exists. They only think in terms of an entity of God in a single dimension.  They identify God as a mythical entity. In other words they don’t know much about the subject of God, only what they imagine He is like in their own minds.

Job 18:21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, And this is the place of him who does not know God.”

How do you feel about yourself?

Are you normal or abnormal? Down deep inside where only you know how you think and feel, do you have a perfect feeling about yourself? Have you successfully fulfilled your dreams in life? Have you been a failure about any important things? Are you so filled with joy that there is no room for more? Do you feel an emptiness that needs filling? What do you really care about? These are all important questions that anyone should be concerned about! It doesn’t make any difference where on earth you live; they are all pertinent to you.

Job 42: 2, 5-6  ” I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You “. I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.”

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

You are hearing His voice now! This is how God speaks to your heart! Today is a day of salvation! God wants more than anything to give you His blessings. He will share His glory with you if you will receive Him into your heart.

I pray that your response will be to allow God into your life so he can pour out His grace upon you, that you may have eternal life from this time forward. Great rewards await you. Let this be the beginning of your new life.

 In the name of Jesus, Amen!

I live north of San Antonio, Texas in the hill country community of Spring Branch, Texas. I have lived in Spring Branch since 1996. I occasionally teach adult Sunday School classes and preach at retirement homes on Sunday which I enjoy very much. My wife and I married in 1960 and have 3 children, and 13 grandchildren. We enjoy our home in the beautiful South Texas Hill Country where I am now retired and spend my time attending church, reading, writing, working on the internet (INOE), gardening, and photography. I believe in the Lord God Jesus Christ, His salvation by grace, His suffering and death on the cross for all men, and His resurrection to life. I pray that God will use this blog to bring people to Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen!
